Colourpop No Filter Matte Concealers Review

ColourPop’s no filter concealers were the brand’s first venture into complexion products. The 30 shade strong collection come in a ray of undertones and they are only $6. I got these last year when they were doing a 30% off sitewide sale along with some other goodies, check out the post here for swatches!

The concealers promise a natural matte finish and a lightweight blendable texture. It is full coverage and long wearing. They come with your standard flat wand applicator.


I wasn’t sure of the shades to get even after watching a lot of videos. I decided to go with Dark 52 described as a neutral warm shade and Dark 54 which is a neutral-cool shade for dark skin tones. I went with these shades based on the swatches online, 50 looked like it would be too light but in hindsight, I should have gotten that.

The undertones of the concealer are not my favourite, 52 is more neutral and has a slight bit of pink however I am still able to use it as an under eye concealer albeit it’s not bright. 54 is a bit warm but it’s too dark to use under the eye, maybe I can try this as a foundation in the summer? The concealers are medium coverage and buildable without looking cakey. The finish is a natural matte and they do make the area appear smooth. It sets well with powder and doesn’t crease on me. I really like that they are not extremely matte and they blend really nicely. They do not oxidise but dry just a tad bit darker. They don’t set extremely fast so you have a bit of playtime after application to blend.



I do like the concealers and for the price, you can’t go wrong. I would like to try a lighter more golden shade and I am waiting for another offer to get them, I think shade 50 would be a better highlighting shade. They are good drugstore concealers with a good shade range.

Colorpop now offer shipping with custom charges included which is amazing! It took them a while! Now they can work on getting a UK retailer or EU site so we don’t have to wait too long for our parcels.

I would like to try more of the no filter collection. I tried the foundation but gave that away because of the shade, it was too light. I am thinking of getting a darker shade in the stix foundation and the pressed or loose powder

Colourpop no filter concealers are $6 on ColourPop


Foundation of the Month October- ColourPop No Filter Foundation

I love ColourPop Cosmetics! Their Ultra Matte Lipsticks are amazing and the price, the price is the cherry on top! I did a ColourPop haul last month and I was waiting till October to test the foundation! So let’s get right into it

ColourPop’s No Filter Foundation is a natural matte buildable full coverage foundation that is oil-free and promises flawless skin day to night.


So this foundation for me is okay, I find nothing special about it. I have the shade 185 which is light so I have to mix it with another foundation. I used their shade finder which matched me to 185 if you have 430 in Fenty (my shade) so I was disappointed to discover it was light. I experienced no irritation with the foundation. The undertone of this foundation is described as golden yellow undertones which I think but there is some neutral as well

With that aside, the foundation is more medium coverage than full coverage but you can build it without looking cakey. It leaves the skin looking smooth in some areas and it doesn’t oxidise during wear. It blends easily into the skin and pairs well with the different primers I have used it with. It’s a lightweight foundation with a natural matte finish. I like that it is not too matte and doesn’t look dry on the skin. Longevity wise – It holds well but does start to separate around the nose area and around my smile lines after a short time even after setting (and I tend to use a lot of powder). I won’t say it highlights texture but it doesn’t necessarily cover it.


I am not a huge fan of this foundation and I am not excited enough about it to find my correct shade. I don’t like mixing foundations but I don’t mind doing it if it’s an amazing one which honestly this isn’t. I think it’s a good foundation for the price you pay and it something more suitable for everyday casual wear. I purchased mine in a site-wide sale and I think I only paid 6 dollars (£5is) for it but still, I have a £5ish foundation that is amazing.

I will be giving this away mainly because I don’t want to keep mixing foundations.

I mostly used the foundation in conjunction with their No filter concealers so I will also have a review on that soon.

ColourPop No Filter Foundation is 12 dollars on ColourPop. UK buyers: it’s free shipping over 50 dollars but you will have to pay a custom fee
