When Colourpop launched their new “No Filter” concealers at the end of July, I was lucky enough to get my hands on the first release. However, it took forever to ship, so I’m just getting it now (but they were nice enough to throw in a free brush for the wait). It claims to be a lightweight, creamy concealer with blurring pigments that gives you a creaseproof, matte finish.
They released 15 shades that cover a pretty good range. I picked up the first two shades – Fair 5 and Fair Neutral 10 – with the intent of using them under my eyes. Each concealer sells for $6USD.
Upon the first swatch, I knew right away that Fair 5 was way too yellow for me. I tend to be pretty neutral or a little on the pinky side, so this one didn’t work. However, Fair Neutral 10 seemed to be the right shade for highlighting.
They weren’t kidding when they said lightweight. Seriously, I can’t even feel the concealer once it’s on. I had previously been using the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer, which kind of slipped off throughout the day, especially if you touched it (which is inevitably going to happen…). The Colourpop one just feels like a second skin, but softer. I feel like I can touch my skin and not worry about my hands being covered in make-up.
It is definitely a matte finish, which is what I like. I always set my under eye with loose powder and the concealer seems to be pairing well my Coty Airspun Translucent Powder.
In terms of pigmentation, let’s just say a little goes a lonnng way! A little dab under each eye will cover the whole area, so just be careful when you first use it.
It is a very creamy consistency, but it dries down really quickly, so you have to work fast! If you were to highlight your whole face with this, by the time you got around to blending everything out I think it would have already dried down.
Overall, I love this concealer and will be getting rid of my Maybelline one in favor of Colourpop. The pigmentation is excellent, the shade range is pretty good and the finished look is so beautiful. And seriously, for $6?? You can’t beat that price!
