I recently fell in love with the wearable, skin-like concealer from Glossier. It wasn’t too surprising that their concealing product fond its way into my makeup bag because honestly, I love pretty much everything they make.
The Stretch Concealer wasn’t completely without flaws for me, unfortunately, but I was willing to overlook it because—Glossier. The concealer actually felt a tinge dark for my skin tone, but if I wasn’t too heavy-handed with the application, it was no big deal.
I started using Glossier’s concealer a couple of months ago and really enjoyed the dewy finish it added to my skin. It covered up what it needed to, without weighing me down.
One of my other all time favorite brands announced they were releasing concealer. So, what’s a beauty lover to do? Buy it to give it a try, of course!
My Glossier concealer was running a bit low so it seemed like perfect timing, anyways.
The Glossier concealer requires comes in a pot and is best to be applied with a finger or BeautyBlender, while the ColourPop concealer comes in a tube and has a wand applicator.
I love how precise you can be with the ColourPop wand. It's nice that a little bit of product goes a long way with the ColourPop version, too, because the Glossier concealer required a little bit of layering.
Both make me feel as though I could just wear concealer and nothing else on my face, but if I had to pick a favorite it would definitely be ColourPop’s No Filter Concealer.
Did I mention ColourPop’s version is only $6, compared to Glossier’s $18?
You can get an idea of the difference in formula based on these swatch photos below.
As you can see, Glossier's formula is much more transparent and requires layering to get to the desired coverage. ColourPop's version goes on thick, but is easily blended.
Buy Glossier's version if: You love Glossier because you’ll likely love this product, too. If you don’t have super pale skin (because it’ll probably work even better for you!). If you like a dewy finish.
Buy ColourPop Cosmetics' version if: You love affordable, quality makeup. If you like medium to full coverage. If you prefer a matte finish.
This definitely comes down to preference, but we hope you found this review helpful and would highly recommend you give ColourPop's No Filter Concealer a try. It's only six bucks, after all!
