My Thoughts on The New ColourPop No Filter Concealers
It feels like forever since the last time I talked about ColourPop here on the blog, and that's saying a lot because I was (still am actually), a ColourPop addict.
I used to always buy the latest releases and used the excuse "it's for my work" to justify the purchases, but that stopped last year (if I'm not mistaken). I told myself to only buy makeup that I need, and that's honestly one of the biggest reasons why I stopped doing monthly favorites, and why I rarely talk about new makeup products. But since I'm running low on my favorite Tarte Shape Tape concealer, I decided to try out a couple of ColourPop's No Filter concealers because I've heard so many great things about them! And to avail of the free shipping, I picked up a couple other things I haven't tried before: one LUX lipstick, their Pressed Powder Cheek (Blush), and their Clear Brow Boss Gel (will blog about the other three soon).
I've been trying out these products for a few weeks now, and I finally have my complete thoughts on them. For today's review, I will be talking about the No Filter Concealers. Hopefully, this review will be helpful if you are planning to try these for yourself. If you have already used the concealers, let me know what you thought about them in the comments below because I'm sure that will help others too!
I am very picky when it comes to my concealers because I have terrible dark circles. My under eye creases like it's nobody's business so I need to make sure the concealers I use are full coverage and crease-proof. When I tried out the Tarte Shape Tape over a year ago, I fell absolutely in love and I didn't really use anything else. But like I said earlier, I'm running low on my ride-or-die and the Shape Tape concealers ain't cheap, so I decided to try out the hyped up No Filter Concealers from ColourPop which retail for only $6!
As you can see from the photo above, I've used a pretty decent amount of the darker shade because I wanted to really test this product out before I gave my final thoughts, and the verdict is: I LOVE IT! It's not as good as the Tarte Shape Tape, let me tell you that right now, but for $6, it's amazing! I haven't tried a drugstore concealer that performs as good as the ColourPop No Filter Concealers, and with the many shades ColourPop carries now, I'm sure you'll be able to find your perfect match.
I use the Medium 28 (formerly Medium 30) concealer for both my under eyes and all over my face! It has medium to full coverage, and dries to a beautiful semi-matte finish. It's not 100% creaseproof, but if you properly set it with a damp sponge and loose powder, it makes your under eyes look nice and smooth. This is not the most long-wearing concealer if you are to use it for your entire face, but it did last about 6 hours on my combination skin. What's nice about it though is that it looks beautiful on the skin with or without face primer. I also love its flat and bendy applicator which truly sets this concealer apart from the rest; makes application super fast and easy! But one of the best things about this concealer is that it makes your skin look flawless, thanks to its soft-blurring pigments!
As for the other shade I own (Medium 24), I use it to brighten up my inner corners if I need extra coverage underneath my eyes. Because it has a bit of a pink salmon shade, it's great for cancelling out my dark circles. One huge thing to note about these concealers though: they dry down a tad bit darker, so keep that in mind when you are picking your shades. Now that I've tested a couple colors, I have a better idea on what to get myself next: Medium 28 or 26 (as my "foundation" shade), Medium 24 (for cancelling out dark circles), Light 18 (for brightening my under eyes)
- $6 - very affordable!
- Has a lot of shades
- Medium to full coverage
- Semi-matte finish
- Looks flawless on the skin
- Pretty easy to blend with a beauty sponge. I use a Beautyblender
- It's NOT creaseproof - this will crease if you don't bake
- It dries down a bit dark, but it won't oxidize throughout the day
So, those are all my thoughts on the ColourPop No Filter Concealer.
I really like them, and if their concealers are this good, I'm excited about their foundations if they do plan on creating those in the future! What ColourPop review would you like to see next? The LUX lipstick, the blush, or the Brow Boss Gel? Let me know below!
