COLOURPOP COSMETICS NO FILTER CONCEALER: MY HONEST REVIEW!

Hi All,

This month is mostly about base products! So maintaining the same, I am here with the review of the new buzz in the makeup world: Colourpop Cosmetics No Filter Concealer !


Product Claims:

Our lightweight, creamy concealer was formulated with soft blurring pigments to give you a crease-proof, matte finish. No filter needed.


Price & Availability:

$ 6 USD for 4 gm
Available only on Colourpop website.


Available Shades:

These are available in 15 different shades ranging from very fair to very dark. Definitely a very vast shade range!



My Experience:

Colourpop has always been a perfectionist when it comes to any of their products. Be it their lipsticks or their eye shadows, it is just amazing and one of the cheapest. And now they have extended towards makeup bases. As soon as I came to know about the launch dates, I decided to give them a try. I was not sure about the shades so picked up 2 shades: Medium 30 and Golden 40.

To clear my condition: I have dry skin with a lot of fine lines under my eyes and bad dark circles. I eat properly, sleep good but still it is there, so I guess these problems are in my gene and there is not much that can be done. So, my search for a perfect concealer is never ending one! After searching/reading a lot I know that I should not expect any concealer to hide my fine lines completely or make my face look like a blank canvas. Fine lines means that even the costliest concealer will settle in after sometime. So, for me the main criteria to rate any concealer is its ability to lighten my dark circles and my fine lines and not vanish them.

Now let's talk about the product packaging. A very simple and stylish one! The concealer comes in a glass tube with a white cap on the top. It has a thick silver band just where the cap sits on the tube and the product name is also written in silver, with their shade names at the bottom. It really looks beautiful but also has the disadvantage of using a white cap. If you keep touching the cap, it will soon get all dirty and patchy.





I really liked the concealer applicator. The stick is of the perfect length and the applicator picks up quite a good amount of product to use. I can cover my full face (wherever I apply concealer) just by using 1 dip. The applicator helps spread the concealer easily and then you can blend it with a synthetic brush, sponge or your fingers.



Now comes the texture. The most important part!
As claimed, the concealer is very creamy in texture and it is very lightweight. You need very little bit of the concealer and it spreads smoothly all over the face. It is good to start with less product and then add more if required as it does not look cakey at all. When ordering, definitely go for a shade lighter as these do tend to oxidise just a little bit with time. I had picked up shade 40 to use as concealer and shade 30 as highlighter. However, since it oxidises, shade 30 seems to be more suitable as my concealer on top of the shade 40.


The best part was that to my surprise, this concealer did not settle in my fine lines! It is quite creamy and I guess it was my loose powder that saved my day but it was amazing. I applied the concealer with a sponge on one side and with my fingers on the other and they almost looked similar after setting it with some loose powder. You should definitely set this as it is quite creamy. It helped cover all my acne spots and the redness. The dark circles were also reduced to a very good extent after applying the concealer twice. It also stays on your face for a good 7-8 hours which is more than enough for me :)


Finally here's the summary!

Pros:
  • Super affordable
  • Blends like a dream
  • Provides a very good coverage
  • Vast shade range
  • Does not settle in your fine lines after setting with powder
Cons:
  • Oxidises during the day
Rating:

4.5/5

I am in love with the concealer. It does not crease, stays for long and hides my dark circles. What else do I need! 

How It Looks On Me:

I have just used concealer under my eyes and around my mouth and set it with some loose powder. I did not use any foundation to show just the concealer look.



Do let me know your thoughts if you have tried these yet. Also if you were confused about this and your concerns are similar to mine, definitely grab these :)

Ciao!!
