What I notice lately on the beauty scene is that everyone is raving on two concealer – NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer and Collection Cosmetics Lasting Perfection Concealer. NARS is on the high price side and when Collection Cosmetics was launched, beauty bloggers as well as YouTubers start to go cray cray over Collection Cosmetics Lasting Perfection Concealer saying that it’s actually a cheaper alternative dupe of NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. I, on the other hand never use any concealer before as I don’t have dark eye circles as a result of getting at least 8-9 hours of well-rested beauty sleep every night. Now that I only sleep 4-5 hours max, I find myself stumbling searching for a concealer suitable for me. Last weekend out of the blue I wanted to get my paws on Collection Cosmetics Lasting Perfection Concealer. And so I did.
When I walked into Watsons KLCC and headed straight to Collection Cosmetics shelf, I saw a BA standing there and I thought hey that’s great. I can get her to help me choose the right shade for me. It turns out I was just hoping too much. I told her that I need the lightest shade and she handed me the tester for Light 2. She doesn’t seems to answer my question properly for example I ask her if this concealer will crease on the under eye and her answer to me was “yes it can be used on acne marks”. LOL. After I made my payment only I notice I was holding Cool Medium 2 tube. I went back to her telling her that she have gotten me the wrong shade and she told me there’s only 2 shades available – Cool Medium 2, which is the new packaging for Light 2 and another darker shade which I couldn’t remember what is the shade name. Well, too late to regret because I’ve already paid.
