Collection Cover Up Stick Review

It wasn't long ago that I reviewed a concealer, but having run out of it I needed to pick one up quickly and although the concealer I previously reviewed was worth the £4.99 price tag, I am literally so skint that I can't currently afford it. After being impressed by one Collection concealer, I picked up another, but this one at a price of just £1.99. I bought the Collection Cover Up Stuck in Light Translucent. 

 In the past I've used concealer sticks, but I've always found them to be quite thick, however the cover up stick applied to the skin is smooth, thick enough to cover blemishes, but thin enough that it doesn't look 'cakey'. I use it to cover dark circles under my eyes and to cover redness on my cheeks and unless my dark circles are particularly bad, it works well at hiding them. Personally, I'd still rather use Collections Illuminating Touch concealer because I do prefer liquid concealers, but for £1.99 you can't go far wrong with the cover up stick.

Have you tried and Collection products? Are there any you'd recommend?

P.S. Is it just me who can't get used to the name change and will forever refer to them as 'Collection 2000?'


  1. Sounds like a great product, collection does some amazing concealers!

  4. Collection are so affordable! I'm quite a fan of collection concealers but like you I much prefer a liquid consistency :) xo

  5. Haha I will forever call them collection 2000 as well! haha xxx

  6. I've never had a good experience with a concealer stick, for the main reason that it makes under my eyes and everywhere else look so caked on. But after reading this I definitely want to try it, and for that price it's worth a risk!

  7. I agree lots with the comment above, every cover up stick leaves my face incredibly dry and cakey but this one actually looks quite decent so I might give it a try!
    Lovely blog (:
