I love ColourPop Cosmetics! Their Ultra Matte Lipsticks are amazing and the price, the price is the cherry on top! I did a ColourPop haul last month and I was waiting till October to test the foundation! So let’s get right into it
ColourPop’s No Filter Foundation is a natural matte buildable full coverage foundation that is oil-free and promises flawless skin day to night.
So this foundation for me is okay, I find nothing special about it. I have the shade 185 which is light so I have to mix it with another foundation. I used their shade finder which matched me to 185 if you have 430 in Fenty (my shade) so I was disappointed to discover it was light. I experienced no irritation with the foundation. The undertone of this foundation is described as golden yellow undertones which I think but there is some neutral as well
With that aside, the foundation is more medium coverage than full coverage but you can build it without looking cakey. It leaves the skin looking smooth in some areas and it doesn’t oxidise during wear. It blends easily into the skin and pairs well with the different primers I have used it with. It’s a lightweight foundation with a natural matte finish. I like that it is not too matte and doesn’t look dry on the skin. Longevity wise – It holds well but does start to separate around the nose area and around my smile lines after a short time even after setting (and I tend to use a lot of powder). I won’t say it highlights texture but it doesn’t necessarily cover it.
I am not a huge fan of this foundation and I am not excited enough about it to find my correct shade. I don’t like mixing foundations but I don’t mind doing it if it’s an amazing one which honestly this isn’t. I think it’s a good foundation for the price you pay and it something more suitable for everyday casual wear. I purchased mine in a site-wide sale and I think I only paid 6 dollars (£5is) for it but still, I have a £5ish foundation that is amazing.
I will be giving this away mainly because I don’t want to keep mixing foundations.
I mostly used the foundation in conjunction with their No filter concealers so I will also have a review on that soon.
ColourPop No Filter Foundation is 12 dollars on ColourPop. UK buyers: it’s free shipping over 50 dollars but you will have to pay a custom fee
