Colourpop is one of the most reasonable priced and high quality makeup brand and was taken by storm when launched. For all the Makeup beginners out there, colourpop has been blessings to them. It was the first brand to launch 42 foundation shades in a go for every skin tone. So, let’s directly get into the review of this product.

My experience with this product–
The product comes in a simple cardboard box package with name and foundation shade mentioned on it. The foundation comes in a sturdy transparent glass bottle with a pump on top. I figured out late that by turning the pump to left can lock the product from spilling out. As there is no cap, the product does not qualify to travel vanity box as leakage can mess up the things and becomes too risky. Also I wished they would have provided the cap as it would have protected the product from air going inside through the knob.
The texture is light weighted and creamy which glides smoothly on skin. The consistency is medium liquid and not runny which blends effortlessly. The foundation was supposed to be matte as they claimed but it is semi matte with a little sheen to it. Application is effortless and works beautifully with brush and beauty blender. It does not cover fine lines or say creases in fine lines which has to set with powder immediately. It provides medium to full coverage, so based on the look you desire, can build up the foundation.
I have noticed, it blurred out my skin making it look more natural, smooth and supple. In this entire process, I did not witness my foundation turning grey, ashy or shady and hence can be worn on everyday basis. The staying power is awesome which last to 6-7 hours without melting on my skin after that I needed touch up on the T zone area to cover up the extra oil/ sheen. The product is pretty comfortable on my skin. In addition to this, I haven’t noticed any irritation or break out on skin.
Overall, I am happy with the product quantity & quality with an affordable price. The “No filter” word is bang on point as it literally feels like my skin is in the bottle, a perfect match. It covers all the imperfection and blemishes plus it is buildable.

Note- Be ready to pay insane custom duty at your doorstep while receiving this products. The price paid while checking out is different than what you will end up paying while receiving the product. The played an unfair game which I really hated as they have not mentioned how much one has to pay a custom duty. So indirectly I ended up buying expensive product (including custom duty charges).
