The Foolproof ?5 Concealer That Sells Out Every 60 Seconds

Concealers are a necessary step in any foolproof beauty routine. I used to leave mine out, but as I get older, I notice I need extra help, particularly?when it comes to covering blemishes.? To create a perfect base, one should be used ideally before you apply your?foundation of choice and one that is a shade later than your fluid.

Whether you want to banish under-eye bags, cover that annoying blemish or?correct any other imperfections, there is a range of options on the market to suit any budget, but I always go back to the same one:?Collection 2000’s Lasting Perfection Concealer, for only €4.79. And just this week, the budget beauty brand has revealed that 10 of its?Lasting Perfection Concealers?are sold every 60 seconds. Makeup artist and general beauty guru Lisa Eldridge is even a fan.

This under-rated gem can?be found in a Boots near you. As it costs less than €5, you would be blamed for having doubts about its lasting effects, but this one ticks many boxes. Available in four colours (Fair, Light, Medium and Deep) it is transfer-proof and is a highlighting and concealing manna from heaven. The creamy formulation is both easily blendable and buildable so you’ll be waving adieu to those dark circles in no time. Basically, all you could want from a concealer.
