I’m well aware that the concealers category on my blog is becoming increasingly concerning and that it probably lets on more insecurities than I’d like to, but you can’t blame me for this one: it’s not that often that I shop on the Colourpop website (the reason why was extensively explained in my Colourpop No Filter Foundation review) and I just couldn’t do a haul without purchasing the Colourpop No Filter Concealer.
Price point: $6!
Where to get it: in Ulta and, of course, on the Colourpop website
Shade range: 30! As I was saying in the No Filter Foundation review, the Colourpop website is super useful in helping you find the right shade. Since I’d ordered in the foundation in the shade Light 50, it recommended the concealer shade Light 10. Personally, I’m not a big fan of very light concealers as I don’t think they flatter me and if I were to order it again, I would probably go a shade darker.
The Colourpop No Filter Concealer is certified vegan and cruelty free.

As you can tell from the picture, the packaging is cute and simple and I don’t have much else to say about it because it really just looks like a concealer. It’s a glass container with a white cap.
- long wear
- full coverage
- natural matte
- crease-proof (my favourite type of claim)
- only one swipe needed
- gives your a flawless complexion
Application: the application is nothing to write home about, and I don’t mean this in a bad way. It’s simple and straight-forward. The applicator is the perfect size, and allows for precise and economical application. You can blend it with a sponge, a brush or your fingertips.
Coverage: the Colourpop No Filter concealer is actually quite pigmented, as you can see in the picture below. The coverage is very decent, but I wouldn’t describe it as full coverage.
Finish: I don’t think I knew what a natural matte finish was, but this is exactly what the concealer is. It really does look natural and lightweight. Again, it would look even better in my opinion if it was a tiny wee bit darker.
Staying power: “DOES THAT CONCEALER CREASE?” is probably up there in my top existential questions, just after “what happens after we die?” and “have you seen my iPhone anywhere?”
Well, I can’t believe I’m going to say this but: THE CLAIMS ARE TRUE. THE COLOURPOP NO FILTER CONCEALER DOES NOT CREASE. What an amazing time to be alive.
As far as the actual staying power is concerned, this isn’t the most long lasting concealer I’ve ever seen, but it is really decent.
Final thoughts on the Colourpop No Filter Concealer
This concealer is extremely affordable, has an amazing shade range, it’s great value and does most of what it says on the tin. It’s really hard to find anything bad to say about it, except for the fact that it’s only available in the USA.
Would I recommend it? Absolutely. To whom? Everyone.
