Review: Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Foundation

Hey everyone it’s me again! I’m back this time with a review which I have been meaning to write for several weeks so let’s just straight in…

This foundation was purchased out of necessity. I was just back from holiday, had no foundation in my supplies that matched my tan and needed to find something desperately, which wasn’t too expensive and gave good coverage.

I read so many reviews of so many different products before I went to Boots to pick something up and I have to say that I read loads about this foundation, that probably should have put me off, but when I tried it in the store, the colour matched perfectly and it seemed to give a really good, full coverage so I figured that for £5.99 I couldn’t go wrong!

And I have to say I am so glad that I gave this a go! I don’t think I have ever tried a better foundation that is so cheap. Honestly, I have tried loads, but this is by far the best. I mean it even compares to my MAC foundation it is so good!

I bought the foundation in shade 3 cool beige, which matched my tan perfectly and despite the fact that I had read online it was cakey and not long lasting, I was surprised to learn that for me it was quite the opposite. I have begun applying foundation differently than I used to (one of my favourite things about being a member of the blogging community is that I am constantly learning and evolving my routine – I will do a video for you soon I promise!) and now start by using a flat foundation brush to apply this foundation followed by a smaller flat head brush to apply a slightly lighter foundation under my eyes and along my nose. The other foundation I use in conjunction with this is my original Studio Fix foundation by MAC in NC15. After I have applied this with my flat brushes I blend using a kabuki brush until it is covered all over my face, before using my Nanshy blending sponge to ensure the colour is even and that my skin looks airbrushed. Once I have done this I set with my Loreal Magique BB Powder in Light and voila!

I was expecting this foundation to be hard to apply, to go cakey throughout the day and to give me a huge breakout, but it has bettered my expectations. It is so easy to apply, lasts all day, including throughout work and at the gym and gives an amazing full coverage with a gorgeous dewy complexion.

I know that normally I would do pros and cons of products but honestly I don’t think there is any point, because this is by far one of the best foundations I have ever used, especially at such a reasonable price! I literally have nothing bad to say about this foundation 🙂

I would definitely repurchase as an every day foundation and would definitely recommend this! This gets a big fat 5 out of 5!

I hope you enjoyed this and find it useful and of course if you do please let me know by commenting, liking and sharing 🙂 And don’t forget to let me know what your favourite foundations are too!

Lots of love, Leanne xx
