Review: Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer | Worth the Hype??


Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer

I am always on a lookout for a perfect full coverage concealer to cover my dark circles, provides hydration and doesn’t crease or fade throughout the day. Tarte had come up with their new concealer named Shape Tape Concealer this past Summer/Fall 2016. I have been wanting to get this but it was always sold out. Fortunately, in the month of October when I was walking past Ulta I just wanted to try my luck and check if this concealer was still available and finally I was happy to get my hands on it. But did it work for me? Is it worth the hype?

My Review:
Can we just take a moment to appreciate how cute the packaging is!! I absolutely adore the packaging. I like the purple gold print on the lid. It comes with a large doe foot applicator. I have never seen such huge applicator for a concealer.

This concealer claims to conceal, highlight and contour. They come in different shades and I am sure each one can find their shade. I got this in the shade Tan just for to hide those dark circles and it was perfect shade. The texture is so thick and not runny whatsoever. It’s a full coverage concealer. It covers almost all the redness, zits and huge dark circles. I was pretty impressed by this. Talking about blendability, it sets quite quickly so you have to be fast in blending and a little goes a long way. Since this concealer is so thick, I use my RT sponge to stipple under my eyes. But however, this concealer dint work for me. This concealer is so thick and matte that it kind of creases on me. I have pretty dry under yes so I was not satisfied with this concealer. It definitely conceals pretty well but it creases within few minutes of application even after setting with powder. I think this particular concealer is better suited to oily skin because of the thickness, matte finish and high level of coverage. If you are a makeup junkie, someone who is struggling with the appearance of their undereyes and have oily skin under the eyes or someone who just wants a new concealer then the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer is try worthy!
This concealer has rose scent to it. I don’t understand why this concealer has so much fragrance in it. It’s not something I prefer. Having such strong scent in a concealer just puts me off.

Overall, I wasn’t totally impressed by this concealer. It dint work great for my skin and plus the considering the price I would get something which really works on me but I am sure there are lot of people who just loves this and it’s one of their HG concealers.
