Back at the start of this year, I did a massive ColourPop haul with all of the products I’d be lusting after which were in the sale. I’ve reviewed quite a few of the products already here on my blog, including the ColourPop No Filter Concealer, the ColourPop Brow Boss Pencil, the ColourPop Give it to me Straight Eyeshadow Palette and the ColourPop No Filter Stix Foundation. Another product I bought within my haul is the ColourPop No Filter Loose Setting Powder, as I had bought the concealer, foundation and pressed powder so I decided to give the loose powder a go too.
The ColourPop No Filter Loose Setting Powder is $9/£6.99 and available in just three shades; Translucent, Banana and Translucent Deep. ColourPop have an handy guide to help you choose which colour would suit you the best. Translucent is said to be best for fair, light, medium and medium dark skin tones. Banana is recommended for all skin tones whilst Translucent Deep is recommended for dark and deep dark skin tones.
The powder is packaged within a clear plastic jar, with a white lid and a white sifter. The jar contains 8.5 grams of product, and the sifter comes initially with a sticker over the top of the sifter. I chose the Translucent shade as it sounded like the best match for me from the guide, although I do think the shade range needs to be extended as three isn’t the most inclusive when you consider one of the three shades is a banana shade.
\”Lock in makeup with our translucent, weightless loose setting powder. Developed with ultra-fine smooth powders to provide a long wearing, soft focus matte finish without feeling heavy or looking cakey. Always 100% cruelty free and vegan, our formula was photo tested to never flashback, giving you selfie-ready skin in any light.“
Although I have the Translucent shade of the ColourPop No Filter Loose Setting Powder, the powder does have a subtle yellow tone to it. The yellow tone is noticeable on my super pale skin and unfortunately it does make me look a little jaundiced. I think if you had skin with a slightly deeper tone that mine, the yellow hue wouldn’t be so noticeable but it is too noticeable for me to get away with.
It’s a shame the tone isn’t perfect as it’s a really nice powder, and there are 800+ glowing reviews on the ColourPop website so it’s a very popular powder. If ColourPop did extend the range to include a white coloured Translucent, I would reorder but sadly I just can’t make it work for me. It definitely isn’t a true translucent shade, and there are reviews from super pale skintones having a similar experience to mine, so I’m glad it’s not just me that struggled with the tone. The Pressed Powder in Fair is a much better option and I’ll get it on the blog very soon.
The Loose Setting Powder is available from ColourPop.
