Choosing the right foundation shade can be tricky, but when you’re buying foundations online can be worse. Colourpop seems to have developed a system to aid us in this tedious task. You just select your skin tone and undertone, the website will give you a few shade options that may match you. When you select your shade and scroll down the page, it also tells you which shade of concealer, pressed and loose powder works with the foundation shade you chose. I may have chosen the wrong undertone because the foundation is lighter with my skin tone, even more with the slightest tan I have going on. According to the Colourpop website:
Developed for the Selfie Age, our buildable full coverage, natural matte foundation delivers flawless looking skin from day-to-night. The oil-free, lightweight formula blends smoothly and is easily customizable to create the coverage you want.
If we don’t take into account that the shade doesn’t match me well, I must say that I’m a bit disappointed. I have been testing out the foundation for almost 2 weeks now and I can’t seem to understand how to make it work for my skin type. The website claims that the foundation has a matte formula and that is somewhat right. Don’t take me wrong, it has a beautiful matte finish when you put in on but that goes away with my oily skin. It looks beautiful when I first applied it but after only 2 hours, the foundation has faded from my chin and mustache area. It also builds up around my nose and sinks into my smile lines. On the rest of my face it lasts around 6 hours, depending on how hot the weather is it can start to break up earlier. I have paired this foundation with the Colourpop No Filter pressed powder, with the Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder, and with Maybelline fit me loose powder. It wears basically the same with each one, as I said, the duration of this foundation on my face depends on the Puerto Rican weather. The coverage is good, I even wore it without concealer the other day and it covered my dark circles and redness nicely.
As for the rest of the collection, I can only speak for the concealer (which I have been loving since it first launched) and the pressed powder which is a good powder. The concealer covers the darkness under my eyes well enough and it doesn’t crease, but obviously I set it with powder to ensure it lasts me all day. Is the only concealer I have been using and I have already repurchased. Although the powder is good, I don’t think it reaches holy grail status for me.
Those are my two cent on the Colourpop No Filter foundation, concealer and pressed powder. Have you tried it? Comment your thoughts in the comment section and let me know what else you would like to see here. Thanks for the support and talk later.
