Review – Tarte Shape Tape Concealer

Rejoice Aussie babes! tarte’s famous Shape Tape concealer has arrived at Sephora and it’s only taken the usual 1 million light years to get here.

Not only are their products fabulous, but their choice of purple (my fav colour) for pretty much all their products makes me like them even more. Let’s discuss.

tarte Says

Get full coverage with a flawless matte finish with this concealer that covers all imperfections and doubles as a contour/highlighter. Its creamy, easy-to-blend formula won’t flake or crease. Mango seed and shea butters nourish and help illuminate your skin for a lifted effect.

Ingredients

Check here as there are different groups for different shades.

Scent

I really dislike fragrance in any face products, but it’s pretty much impossible to find makeup without a scent or fragrance even listed on ingredients. However, this smells amazing!! I would spray this on my body if it came in a perfume bottle. tarte, Eau De Parfum.

Size comparison, NARS Radiant Creamy concealer

On average you get about 6ml of concealer give or take a bit. This is a whopping 10ml which is great if you’re intent on highlighting/contouring your entire face often.

My Blue Vein – The Full Coverage Test

20190203233926_IMG_4684So I have this very large, blue vein under my right eye. I don’t care about it being there because it’s always been there. I have couperose skin and a lot of obvious blue veins all over my body. But it’s great to test the coverage!

Note, I didn’t use any correcting colours just the Shape Tape alone underneath my foundation.

My Thoughts

I’ve worn this at least 7 times since its purchase. I’ve tried a lot of concealers and this one is definitely everything everyone else is talking about. I agree that it is;

  • Full coverage
  • Brightens the under eye area
  • Smooths the under eye area
  • Blends well, you don’t need a lot of product
  • Last well with no creasing

My blue vein is concealed and yes, you can slightly see it. I would probably need a concealer with more peachy tones to counteract it completely but I like this shade enough. My purpose for concealing with this shade is to bring some lightness to the under eyes and inner corners. I’m not a huge fan of white triangles of zinc under my eyes.

Just enough lift to brighten

I will only wear this with a full face of makeup or to conceal my eyes on any general day. This is not your everyday/natural makeup concealer, it means high coverage business!

So will you be getting your very own jumbo concealer the Shape Tape concealer from tarte? Let me know if you’ve tried it and what your thoughts are down below 🙂

Love your health.
