Product Review: Colourpop No Filter Foundation Stix


I’ve been a Colourpop fan for a few years now. Ever since I first tried their liquid lipsticks, I knew it was a great brand. Since then, I’ve tried and tested out a ton of their products – their brushes, ultra blotted lips, concealers, and almost everything in-between. Colourpop recently released a line of foundation sticks that claim to provide:

  • Medium, but buildable coverage
  • Feel weightless
  • Blend seamlessly
  • Natural-skin finish

All the claims sound perfect for an everyday, go-to foundation, but how does the Colourpop No Filter Foundation Stix really stack up?

To start, let’s talk about first impressions. The sleek, white packaging is quite luxurious for only being a $10 foundation. It feels sturdy, so it should be perfect for travel. Overall, it’s a no frills, but high-quality packaging that I can definitely appreciate. The shade range is also pretty good for the price – 30 shades ranging from fair to deep dark with cool, neutral, and warm undertones. The shade range of the Colourpop No Filter Foundation Stix definitely beats out some drugstore brands. I chose to go with Light 50W described as a “warm foundation with yellow undertones for light skin tones.” Pretty straightforward.

For the application, I wasn’t sure at first as to how much I should put on. Luckily this foundation claims to be buildable, so I started off with three swipes on either cheek and a little bit on the forehead, nose, and chin. I found that this foundation works really well with a flat top foundation brush as compared to a beauty sponge. I find this to be the case with nearly all stick foundations. With the amount that I first applied, I got pretty good coverage – definitely light, barely medium coverage. The light coverage doesn’t make me mad though. i loved that I could still see my skin, but it looked more even overall. The finish definitely lived up to the claims of being a natural finish. With my oily/combo skin, I didn’t know if I’d look like an oil slick by the end of the day but the foundation had a natural finish for at least 5 hours before oil started to peek through.

In order to test the buildable claims, I applied a touch more to my cheeks, chin, and nose. Blending it in with the foundation brush was easy and it added just the extra touch of coverage that I was looking for. After applying the rest of my makeup, it really felt like I wasn’t really wearing foundation. It’s super lightweight and my skin can still breathe with the Colorpop No Filter Foundation Stix on. Here’s my before and after with this foundation:

Overall, I am super pleased with this foundation. It was super easy to apply, made my skin look naturally gorgeous and even, and lasted a good amount of time. And I get all of this for $10?!

If you’re on the hunt for a stick foundation that won’t break the bank, head over to the Colourpop website and grab the No Filter Foundation Stix.
