Disclaimer: I do not now, nor have I ever worn make-up, except for theater productions, and when doing interpreting where I was a long distance from the Deaf people, when I used a little mascara and lipstick to make my facial expressions a little more obvious.

It's my understanding that concealers that contain collagen dry tight, so they can conceal fine wrinkles to a small extent. It's a very minimal effect, and helps women only of a certain age-- those just beginning to develop fine lines around the mouth and eyes, maybe late 30s. Younger women don't need them, and older women don't benefit from them.

The huge drawback, of course, is that they contain an animal product. It may be that they contains slaughterhouse refuse, and no animal dies specifically to make them, but still-- ewwwwwwwww

I may be wrong, either about the purpose of collagen as an ingredient, or about whether it actually works, but I've read this in more than one place.
