Tarte has been dominating the beauty scene this year; the mega brand garnered a huge cult following for their Shape Tape concealer. And there’s no way you haven’t heard of this concealer if you love makeup – it has infiltrated every corner of the beauty community because of its amazing qualities. I shouldn’t have been so skeptical because I know from experience that Tarte makes incredible concealers (I’m talking about you, Maracuja Creaseless concealer!). However, I came across so many rave reviews and not one mentioned a negative attribute about the Shape Tape. Real suspicious, I thought. But of course, being the concealer hoarder that I am, I picked up the Shape Tape to try for myself.
Watch how I use this on our Instagram 🙂
Check out a list of my other favorite concealers here!
Tarte Shape Tape Concealer
Best used for: under-eye circles, hyper pigmentation
My Shade: light-medium
– Long-lasting wear
– A little goes a long way!
– Super blendable & easy to work with
– Gives an ultra smooth, demi-matte finish
– Can accentuate texture if too much is used
– Not the best for people with dry skin under their eyes
My Rating: 10/10
Apply a very small amount to get the best finish and wear time! I use one or two dots under each eye.
Blend with a sponge – the formula is creamy, but it dries down very quickly. After applying one or two dots under my eyes, I use my finger to spread the product before it dries down. Then, I blend using a BeautyBlender to get the most natural and smooth finish.
Since the formula for the Shape Tape is heavy, I highly recommend that you moisturize well before using. This will ensure the concealer blends seamlessly into your skin and doesn’t cake up on dry patches.
