Is Tarte Shape Tape Really One Of The Best Concealers Ever Made?

What is it?

The Tarte Shape Tape concealer was released near the end of 2016 and since then it has become one of the most talked about concealers. Of course with all the amazing reviews I wanted to try it, but unfortunately, the concealer is not available to purchase in Canada. Tarte Shape is exclusively sold at Ulta, a cosmetics store in the United States. However, you can purchase it from the Tarte cosmetics website. I stopped by Ulta while I was in New York and bought one for myself. It is supposed to be a full coverage concealer that gives you a matte finish.  The concealer claims to be easy to blend,  covers blemishes, and is supposed to brighten and illuminate the skin. It’s not supposed to flake or leave creases. It comes in 30 shades so you have plenty of options to choose from. It sounds pretty amazing, so I put it to the test.

Pros

Shade Light Medium

I’ve been using this concealer for a couple of months now I do like it a lot. I get lots of compliments whenever I am wearing this concealer. The packaging is very pretty, I like the purple and gold lid and the big doe foot applicator it comes with. This concealer has a thick consistency so a little goes a long way. It blends in beautifully and covers darkness and redness really well. I absolutely hate it when concealers crease throughout the day, so the fact that this one doesn’t is a huge bonus for me. It lasts all day long on the skin and gives all the coverage you need.

Cons

I don’t know what I am doing wrong, but I find that it does crease throughout the day. The creases are not as harsh looking as they are with other concealers. Overall, I do think it’s a little pricey, but if you want a concealer that will cover any blemishes or any darkness under the eyes than I would recommend this product. If you’re somebody who likes a concealer with a more dewier finish than you might no like the Tarte Shape Tape. I personally think it looks fine when I use it with a dewy foundation.
