The ColourPop No Filter Concealers ($6 USD or $7.47 CAD) have a medium to full coverage finish that dries down matte but doesn’t feel dry. Each concealer is housed in a thick, transparent plastic tube with a flexible dome foot wand that picks up just the right amount of product and hugs the contours of your under eyes.
My two issues with this concealer is how badly it oxidizes (pictured below) and how the formula does not mix well with water at all. One day, my eyeliner was running in my inner tear duct area so I took a bit of water to try and clean that area up, but it ended up picking up my concealer, creating little bubbles and making it impossible for me to blend it back out!
In light of how tricky shade matching can be and how the formula doesn’t mix with water, the pros of this still outweigh the cons. When built up, the concealer provides full coverage that blends out beautifully, it lasts all day and the price is just right! You just have to find the right shade (go lighter!) and avoid water, and you’re good. So for me, this is still beauty swatched approved.
A lot of people ask me how this compares to the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. Whereas both can provide a full coverage finish, the ColourPop concealers are less drying (I have to set these with a powder) whereas the Tarte Shape Tape Concealers dry to a matte finish that I don’t set with powder because it gets too cakey. This is a more affordable option to the Tarte Shape Tape concealer that I’ll repurchase once I run out of my Tarte concealer.

The jump between shades 20 and 30 is quite dramatic and the longer these concealers dry for, the more exaggerated the difference gets.
