Hi guys! Welcome to “Worked or Not?”, this is how I’m calling the reviews from now on. I got sick and tired of just saying review, it started sounding plain to me so I decided to change it up a bit. Enough of that, let’s get to the point of this post: my thoughts on Colourpop’s foundation stick. First, you need to know that this foundation comes in 30 shades and retails for $10. Colourpop’s website says “Create a flawless face in seconds with this weightless, medium-buildable coverage stick foundation. Blends seamlessly for a natural skin-like finish.” Is all that true? I’ll let you know right now.
I bought mine in the shade Light 70 W, which I think is a little too dark for me at this moment but I make it work every now and then. This foundation does have a “medium-buildable coverage” as it’s stated in the website and it’s also a lightweight formula. But I’m not quite down with the seamless blend or the flawless finish. I’ve seen amazing reviews for this product but my experience was total opposite. Starting at application, the formula was dry which made it really difficult to blend. Using a sponge didn’t work, so I went with a brush instead and after a while I could get it to blend. It’s lightweight as I’ve already said but you can tell I’m wearing foundation, it emphasizes every little pore and dry patch on my face (which I don’t have many because I have oily skin). Talking about skin types, it only took like four hours for this foundation to fall apart on my face. It starting breaking up on my T-zone and just kept getting worse from there.
So, as you can see this foundation was definitely a miss for me, it didn’t work in any way. I’ve been trying it for months now with different primers/setting powders/setting sprays, and there’s no good variation in the performance of Colourpop’s No Filter foundation stick.
