ColourPop No Filter Concealer Review / Swatches

Between Christmas and New Year, I placed an huge ColourPop order as they had upto 40% off everything, free international shipping and a free eyeshadow palette gift with purchase deal – all of which were too good to miss. I featured my ColourPop haul already on my blog, and today I have the first of my many ColourPop reviews coming your way with the ColourPop No Filter Concealer. If you’re not a regular blog reader of mine, ColourPop are my absolute favourite beauty brand so I want to try anything they launch but their concealer had been at the top of my to try list for a pretty long time as the shade I wanted was often out of stock so when I spotted it was in stock whilst placing my mammoth order, and had 40% off I knew it was meant to be.

I can guarantee you’ll have read or watched rave reviews of the ColourPop No Filter Concealer, infact it has an incredible 2982 reviews on the ColourPop website alone with almost a five star rating. The ColourPop No Filter Concealer full price is $6 / £4.58 which is fantastic value for money considering it contains 5ml of product. To put that into perspective, the Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer is £4 but it only contains 3.4ml of product so the ColourPop concealer is a much better price. The ColourPop No Filter Concealer is available in an impressive thirty shades, and ColourPop have the shades broken down into categories; Skin Tone (fair, light, medium, medium dark, dark and deep dark), and then Undertone (cool and warm). Then when you select one of the shades, there is a description for the particular shade. I chose the shade Fair 02 which is described as being “neutral cool concealer for fair skintones” which I knew would match my fair, cool toned skin very well.

ColourPop Customs Fee Information

Something I like to mention within my ColourPop reviews is the customs fees information as it’s my most asked question by far but ColourPop now allow us in the UK to pay VAT at checkout so we no longer get the dreaded customs fees which Royal Mail loved to charge us. Now when you add items to your basket, the ‘taxes’ are calculated just like they would be if you were an US resident so what you pay at checkout is the exact amount you’ll pay with zero hidden fees or charges on delivery. The customs fees never put me off ordering from ColourPop but now they’ve introduced this new step, I couldn’t be more happy and I know a lot of you are now trying ColourPop for the first time as it was something that put you off ordering in the past. One of my very lovely followers told me that if for any reason you do incur charges on your order, you can email the ColourPop customer service team and they’ll refund the charges which shows how brilliant their customer service is..

ColourPop No Filter Concealer Review and Swatches in shade Fair 02

When I swatched the ColourPop No Filter Concealer in Fair 02, I couldn’t believe how perfect it was – it is the perfect match for my skintone and that never, never happens for me. I always have to add lightening drops to get concealers (and foundations) to match me, but this shade matches me completely and you can’t even see the lines of where the concealer starts and stops in my blended swatch as it’s such a good match. Fair 02 is the palest concealer I’ve found priced under £10 and it’s even paler than my Barry M Milk Concealer which until now had been the palest that wasn’t just a straight up white shade. The concealer has a flattened doefoot applicator and has the perfect buildable formula for a concealer where it can offer medium coverage in just one layer, but an extra layer will give you full coverage whilst still looking natural and skin-like once blended.

I like to blend it with a dampened BeautyBlender but it works well with my Zoeva Concealer Buffer Brush too, and although it’s matte it’s not an unflattering matte. It’s definitely not a dewy concealer, but it has the natural sheen that skin has and it doesn’t emphasise dry patches even when concealing blemishes. I was so impressed with the shade match, I didn’t expect to love the formula too as it’s so rare to find a concealer that matches my skintone but also works with my dry skin but the ColourPop No Filter Concealer ticks all of the boxes. It is SO, so good and I can’t believe it’s under £5. I have nothing but praise for this concealer, and if you have super pale Casper the ghost skin like mine, ColourPop have us covered with their fabulous shade range. I also have the ColourPop pressed powder, loose powder and foundation stick which I’ll feature very soon…

I’d love to know if you’ve ever tried the ColourPop No Filter Concealer?
