Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Powder

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Powder Review

Is it just me or my collection of Collection 2000 or Collection Cosmetics is kinda growing? 

I've always wanted to try their powder but it was always out of stock! These powders sell like pancakes in the two malls that I go to -- Festival Mall and Alabang Town Center. So, to my surprise when I saw one available, yes, just one and in the shade that matches me perfectly, I just had to buy it.

This powder has got to be one of the strongest powders I've owned. I stand about 5’5 and I dropped it from my eye level straight flat to the ground. I screamed, looked down, and nothing happened to the powder. I thought it would be shattered to pieces but I was so wrong. It just means that the product is super compact and you're getting more than your money’s worth.

Great packaging -- compact, travel friendly and drop-friendly. Affordable at PHP 169 plus it's a perfect shade match. Kinda sucks that it doesn't have a sponge included and that it's only light coverage. I guess it's more of a setting powder or a touch up powder rather than an oil-control one. Hey, good thing is it doesn't cake up because it's too light right? :)

So, 16 hour wear? Ugh no, not for oily skin. I felt the need to touch up after just 2 hours.

Is it worth trying? Yes, especially if you have dry skin or you're in cold places most of the time. Oil control is very important to me and this just didn't make the 3 to 4 hour cut for me even when I used a primer. But I do love the light finish it gives me. It seems like a translucent powder. It gives a very natural glow instead of matte and flat.


  1. Hi sis. I love this one too. Though it only lasted 3-4 for me on my tzone but what matters most is that this won't cake and not chalky like the local brand (c*rel*ne). And not Collection is 30% off all items until end of Oct 2014 that's why I bought 2 of these and lippies.

    1. That's what I thought, oil control for oil-slick-girls like me are mehhh.. but it really is super light and doesn't cake. I haven't tried collection lipsticks! idk which one to get, the ones in the black tubes or the pink tubes. idk which one is better :)
