Tarte ‘Shape Tape’ Concealer

I often try and avoid falling for hyped up products. I don’t know why but I feel like it’s too trendy and I am usually not into trend shizz BUT when it comes to makeup sometimes the hype gets you whether you like it or not.

HENCE today’s review. If you guys haven’t heard of this concealer um where have ya been? I’m going to spare you from an unnecessary long intro and dive straight into the review!

Coverage: This guy packs a lot of coverage! Easily a full coverage concealer

Longevity: It also lasts very well considering it’s creamy nature BUT I always set my concealer with powder so that will play a role in how long it lasts.

Formula: The formula of this concealer is quite thick, yet it’s creamy and hydrating. It blends out very nicely – I always use my beauty blender to apply it.

Does it crease? Considering its thick consistency it doesn’t crease too badly. Now to a degree all concealers crease on me because I have a deep set crease under both eyes but other than that it sits under my eyes very well! I find that the concealers that crease on me are drying so this concealer doesn’t have that problem. For some people it can crease but if you change up how you apply it, you can minimize potential creasing.

Packaging: This concealer is a wand concealer that comes with a big ass dome foot applicator.

How much product do you get? You get 10 ml of product, more than a typical wand concealer.

Under the eyes or for spots?: You could easily use it for both. I personally love it under the eyes!

Pros: its full coverage, hydrating and creamy and it blends out super easily. It sits very well under the eyes.

Cons: I love this concealer and don’t have a bad thing to say about it. I do find with wand concealers you do run out of them quicker but this tarte concealer definitely has more product than a typical wand concealer.

Price: $37 AUD

Shade range: This concealer comes in 14 shades

Availability: The Tarte site

Rating: 9/10

Overall thoughts: I’m obsessed with this concealer. It works so well under the eyes and covers so well. I’ve been struggling to find an under eye concealer I like that has lots of coverage. I’ve definitely found one now and I am one happy camper. I highly recommend this concealer!

Would I repurchase it?: I already have a backup and I definitely plan to purchase this again and again!


And that wraps up this review! Have you guys tried out this infamous concealer? What were your thoughts? Drop a comment, I love hearing from you guys. I hope you all have the best day and I’ll see you in the next post.

    I liked the Tarte Shape Tape but I didn’t repurchase. It does crease on me too, but all concealers tend to do that.

      Yes I find that 0% of creasing by any concealer is a bit impossible. I’m only 23 and I have always had these 2 deep-set creases under the eyes so everything creases in theme haha. x

    I too fell for the hype but wasn’t wowed from the start as this really takes some work and getting used too seeing as it is SO full coverage! But now after having ‘played around’ I totally love it. The hype was real after all LOL Kelly xx

      It’s definitely on the thicker side in terms of consistency but it’s so rare to find a full coverage concealer that works under the eyes!

    Have you tried NARS creamy concealer? I find that to be really great coverage for me. It is on the thicker side but works wonders.

      I actually have tried it. It was an alright concealer but it didn’t blow me away for the price and considering how quickly it can run out.
