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

My Ultimate Drugstore Makeup Kit

Primer – I never do my makeup without this and I have loads! I am currently switching between a few but I super love the Makeup Revolution Face Primer which is only £4

Makeup Revolution Ultra Face Base Primer Review

Foundation- A good base from the drugstore? For dark skin? Some drugstore brands are killing it atm. I am currently loving the Body Shop Fresh Nude Foundation for everyday wear. It feels lightweight and has the dewy fresh finish I love. I have the darkest shade Tuscany but what’s genius about this range is that they have Shade Adjusting drops you can use to lighten or darken your foundation for your perfect shade!

Colour Corrector- I use Orange colour correctors to cancel out any dark areas on my face. Hands down my fav and best one I have used so far is the LA Girl Orange Corrector

Concealer- A super cheap and very popular concealer. I bet you know what I am going to say. It’s the one and only LA Girl Pro Concealers! I have the shade Toast for everyday wear

Under eye setting powder- I used to love Sacha Buttercup Powder as an under eye setting powder until it turned on me. I use the Black Opal Deluxe Finishing Powder in Deep to set my concealer nowadays

Brows- I haven’t really mastered the art of filling in brows and I am so thankful I have thick brows. I always use a clear brow gel to brush them in place. At the moment I am using one from Collection

Face powder- I live for my MAC Blot Powder but on super casual days, I reach for my Milani Pressed Translucent powder which gets the job done too.

Highlighter- When it comes to highlighters, you know Makeup Revolution is killing it right now! I have loads of them but I tend to reach for the Rock on World Baked Bronzer the most. I have swatches of all the highlighters below in my Best Highlighters Pos

Blush– A good pigmented blush is hard to find in the drugstore but Sleek never goes wrong with these. I have 3 of their blush palettes and I reach for the Sugar palette the most

Contour- I’m only starting to learn how to contour so I decided to start from the drugstore. I have been using the Nyx Contour Palette in Dark

Setting spray- I’m a lover of setting sprays! I really like the BodyShop Vit C & E face mists, or the Makeup Revolution Setting Spray

Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Amazing Makeup Fixing Spray Review

Mascara- It has to be the Revlon Ultimate All in One Mascara. Lengthens and thickens!

Eyeliner- Barry M Kohl Pencil, very nice and pigmentated

Eyeshadow – I’m really an eyeshadow for special occasions kinda girl but if I am feeling fancy I will pull out the GOSH quad. I love the neutral colors and it doesn’t crease either

Lipstick- For lipstick, I chose the Lottie London Liquid Lipstick in Hey Bae, a super casual brown/nude color. I live for drugstore lipsticks and have quite a few.

SO that’s it folks, my Ultimate Drugstore Makeup Kit featuring all my fav drugstore makeup items. I linked reviews/posts I have on products so make sure you check those out for detailed info on them
