Collection Lasting Perfection Foundation & Concealer

I've been after a new foundation ever since my Rimmer Wake Me Up ran out. Not because I didn't like it, on the contrary, it was lovely, but I wanted to try something new. Plus it wasn't perfect for my oily skin. I had been trying Clinique's new Stay Matte foundation, which was amazing, but a bit pricey for me at the moment unfortunately. 

I've seen some fab reviews on this foundation and concealer and it's at a ridiculously cheap price so I thought why not! I'm so glad I purchased. This is probably the best drug store foundation I have ever used. No joke. The foundation comes out of a little spout (I would have take a photo but it's covered in the product), I pop a little bit on the roof of my hand, dab it around my face then apply it using my Real Techniques Buffing Brush. It blends in perfectly and gives the right amount of coverage. It looks natural as well which I love.
The concealer comes with on this little wand above. I pop a few dots under my eyes to hide my bags, end of my nose for redness and any blemishes, then blend with the buffing brush. Again, blends straight in, really natural, really lovely feel to it. 

Another thing I love about these products is that they are oil-free - YAY! Usually when I start using foundations my skin starts to break out, but so far so good with this - no breakout! 
It also has SPF 20, which was a godsend whilst doing Race for Life - I forgot sun cream cause, let's face it, we haven't exactly needed it and everywhere else burnt except my face! 
It claims to last up to 16 hours, I wouldn't say that long but I can come away from 8 hours at work and still look made up which is fantastic for me, especially if I'm doing something straight after. 
My only downer at the moment would be that it's quite heavy now the sun is back out! So I've gone back to a BB cream, which isn't half as nice, but I'm still using the concealer religiously.

You can pick these up at Boots for £5.99 (I think), cheap as chips and worth so much more in my opinion! Definitely my drug store foundation choice!

What is your drug store foundation?
