Colourpop finally did it ladies and gentleman, a $6 concealer! Yes you read that right, a $6 concealer. …
ABOUT THE BRAND
First things first, if you have no damn clue what I’m talking about, Colourpop is an online cosmetics brand founded in 2014 (even though it won’t be solely an online brand for long, which I’ll talk about later on). The company has gained tons of fame through influencers mainly for it’s affordability. Colourpop prides itself on being wallet friendly( which they indeed are) and never test on animals and the quality is pretty impressive for the “wallet friendly” prices the company offers. Colourpop has slowly expanded its product lineup from lippies, eyeshadows, highlighters, brow products and finally concealers!
“Our lightweight, creamy concealer was formulated with soft blurring pigments to give you a crease proof, matte finish. No filter needed”.
PRICE & AVAILABILITY
You can find the Colourpop concealer for $6. Yes, you read that right, only…six…dollars. The Colourpop No Filter Concealer is currently only sold (and is back in stock after selling out in less than a few hours) on Colourpop.com, however it was announced earlier this month that Coloupop will be sold at some Sephora locations in the near future.
Colourpop does ship internationally and guarantees shipping of your order within 3-5 business days. Shipping prices vary depending on location, however you receive free shipping once you spend $50 or more, before any coupon codes. Coupon codes are fairly easy to get from Colourpop; if you sign up for their email list you will receive a $5 off coupon, which is pretty decent when most products on the site are about $5. For this particular order, shipping took a while longer than expected 3-5 business days that Colourpop guarantees. I received an email on business day five stating that the package was going to arrive later than expected due to the No Filter Concealer Launch being highly anticipated. Once I finally received my package, a few days after receiving the email, there was a written apology and a free mini lippie stick which I thought was quite generous.
The concealer lineup consists of 15 shades; 5 in the light category, 5 in the medium category and 5 in the dark category. I will say I’m impressed with their initial round of color choices. Is there room for improvement, yes, but starting off, they’ve created more colors than most brands even consider. For purposes of this review, I’m going to only comment on the five that I have ordered which vary from deep to deepest dark skin tones.
From Left to Right: Rich, Deep, Deep Golden, Tan, Golden
Inside the bottle is contains 4.0 grams of product (.14 oz), which I initially thought was a small amount of product, but after using the concealer, a little bit goes a lonnng way. The container has a white cap which I will admit Im not a fan of white packaging since it gets dirty rather quickly. The best part, is the wand; it small enough to get into every small crevice and flexible enough to get around curves. You know how getting around your nose area could be difficult? Yeah it gets in that crease. The rest of the bottle is I believe plastic, however it is see through which gives the appearance of glass however, it is not which is a good thing. No one wants to drop a glass container full of concealer on carpet, hardwood or any other surface.
NO FILTER CONCEALER CLAIMS ANSWERED:
HOW TO USE?
Use to conceal blemishes, highlight your under eyes, or contour! Blend with a sponge, a brush, or fingers to create an airbrushed finish.
FULL COVERAGE & BLURRING?
The concealer is indeed full coverage and does blur imperfections and a little product goes a long way.
I’ve used this concealer three ways, as a foundation, as a highlight and contour and as an eyeshadow base (each color I used for which is above) and it did crease around my mouth area but not as much as other concealers des, the creasing was very minimal and begun around hour 5 of me wearing the product.
It blends so easily, which was the first thing I noticed before even reading the claims on the website.I used a beauty blender and it blended so effortlessly. This is not one of those concealers where you have to work in sections, I certainly didn’t and had no problem blending once the concealer dried and settled into the skin.
Definitely matte. If matte is not your thing, this concealer wont be for you. The only downside about a matte concealer is that if you have dry skin, it could potentially cling to your dry patches. However, I personally do not have dry skin and cant comment on that, however I saw no irritation in my skin once so ever.
Yes, and a thin creamy consistency that feels very comfortable on the skin.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
I wore this concealer on a Saturday, where I was outside majority of the day and it still held up through the day. I washed my makeup off around 11pm that night (about 8 hours later) and the concealer held up.
DOES THE CONCEALER OXIDIZE?
The product does oxidize slightly, so be aware of that however I wouldn’t recommend going up a whole shade to prevent oxidation.
Overall I’m so happy with this concealer that I’m hoping that Colourpop decides to turn this into a foundation in the future. It’s beautiful, lightweight and literally everything I’ve been looking for in a concealer at this price point.
