Last week I waxed lyrical about the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer (which you can read here), and the following day I promptly ran out and bought the foundation from the same range.
I have to admit it, I might scour the drugstore for some items, but I do normally veer towards high end brands for foundation. The reason being that I've broken out with cheaper foundations in the past, but also because the shade ranges are normally very poor.
 
I picked up the palest shade (Porcelain 1) in the Lasting Perfection foundation and was surprised that its actually a good colour match for me. I've literally been wearing this foundation every day since I bought it. It's a medium to high coverage oil-free foundation which to me actually feels quite light on the skin. It's supposed to stick around for 16 hours, and although I haven't worn it for that long, it does hang around for 8 hours plus on my skin. It also is SPF20 which is never a bad thing.
 
I'm pretty impressed with this so far. I've paired it with a primer as I always do and applied it with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush and lightly patted all over with the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge for a really seamless finish. It dries to almost a powder finish so I didn't need to powder over the top. You could build this up more but I could see things getting a little cakey if you're not too careful. I have to say, the finish of it isn't too dissimilar to that of my beloved NARS Sheer Glow, although not packing quite as much of a dewy punch. But, for £5.99 you can't really go wrong with this. Unless you don't wear foundation that is!
 
I'm really rating Collection now, are there any more of their products that I should be trying? Do you think you'll give this foundation a go?
