Hey beauties, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m finally getting around to reviewing the ColourPop No Filter Concealer! ColourPop No Filter Concealer is incredibly inexpensive and just about every beauty YouTuber I watch has included it in their 2017 favourites so ColourPop must be doing something right.
ColourPop No Filter Concealer
No Filter Concealer retails at ColourPop for $6USD for 4 grams/ 0.14 oz. It’s available in 15 different shades and claims to be creaseproof, blurring and matte.
I’m so obsessed with the cardboard packaging for the No Filter Concealer that I still haven’t thrown the box out a month later. It’s got little peachy/cream coloured stripes running up the sides and it’s just so cute, how could I get rid of it!? The actual product is packaged similar to their liquid lipsticks, just in a fatter, shorter tube. It’s got the signature slanted ColourPop lettering in silver letters.
The applicator for No Filter makes me happy. I’m not a fan of flimsy mascara wands, but for for concealer I don’t mind if the wand is a little bit more bendy. This wand has a long & skinny applicator sponge that’s a bit more flexible than a stiff wand like the Tarte Aquacealer wand.
There is one glaring problem with the formula that I have to address: No Filter Concealer oxidizes. My camera doesn’t pick up orange hues very well but it oxidizes to an orange shade or two deeper than what’s in the tube. I went with the lightest shade possible, Fair 05 to compensate and was glad that I did. I would have bought Fair Neutral 10 otherwise which would have been way too dark after it oxidized. Go at least one shade lighter if you can!
ColourPop No Filter Concealer dries down matte. I have dry skin so I really need to make sure I moisturize and prime my undereyes when I use this concealer so it doesn’t sink into fine lines and my skin doesn’t look dried out.
I useNo Filter for both under eye circles & blemish coverage and I find it works well for both. The formula is a medium consistency learning more towards thin than thick and gives me a nice medium coverage. My dark circles are very prominent without makeup and I like that No filter covers them up nicely and blends in easily with a sponge. For blemishes I sometimes need a thicker concealer for full coverage or a colour corrector underneath, but generally I’m happy with the coverage I get from No Filter.
Creasing & Blurring
I haven’t noticed a lot of creasing with No Filter Concealer. I use a primer underneath to prevent it from sinking into fine lines, but I’m pretty sure that’s because my dry winter skin doesn’t agree with a matte formula right now. As for blurring, it hides the appearance of blemishes nicely but doesn’t really blur those fine lines on it’s own.
For $6USD this concealer is awesome! Can you beat that and still get this quality? I haven’t tried a concealer at this price point that I like as much as No Filter. Keep in mind I haven’t tried out a plethora of concealers, I don’t get PR or anything like that! But I really do think this concealer is worth a try if you like a matte finish and are on a budget. Just remember to order a shade lighter than what you would normally need to account for the oxidization.
