Colourpop recently released their No Filter Concealer ($6) in an extensive range of 15 shades. I ordered two shades to test out, Fair Neutral and Light Neutral.
As you can see from my pics, the difference between the two colors is hardly noticeable. Light Neutral is just a touch darker with a very slight hint of pinky peach.
On the skin, I really can’t notice a difference between the two. Once blended out, they both work well on my fair skin.
The packaging is great. It’s a chubby little tube containing 0.14 oz with a nice size applicator wand that is flat on both sides.
The coverage is nice, I’d say it’s about medium. I’ve used both my fingers and a damp makeup sponge for application and both work well with the formula.
The consistency is not too thin and not too thick. It blends out really easily with little effort.
One thing that everyone has seemed to notice is that this Colourpop concealer changes color almost immediately after it’s exposed to air. It doesn’t oxidize and get orange but it just gets a hint darker.
I’m a 40+ gal so fine lines and dry undereyes are a concern for me. I’m happy to say that this concealer does not settle into fine lines nor does it get extra dry and cakey.
As a bonus, this concealer can actually double as a foundation! I’ve worn it all over my face as a foundation and it looks great.
It gives me about light medium coverage with a semi-matte finish. It surprisingly wears well on my oily skin all day as well.
Even without a primer, the only portion that my oils broke down was on my nose. That is always a problem area for me so I still consider this wearable as a foundation.
I probably wouldn’t turn to this Colourpop concealer everyday for my foundation but it’s something you could use in a pinch. A little goes a pretty long way so a lot is not needed to cover your entire face.
Overall, I think this is a nice budget friendly concealer option. It’s cheap, gives great coverage and doesn’t make my undereyes look like the Sahara.
