Recently, I’ve had a pretty bad obsession with concealers. One of the reasons I’ve really loved concealers lately, is because I heard of the no foundation “diet(I actually have no idea what it is called haha).” The no foundation “diet” is basically where you don’t wear foundation on a regular basis, and you only wear concealer on the spots that really need it. It’s supposed to really clear up your skin. I don’t always do this, but I’ve tried to cut out foundation a little more, and on an ordinary day, I might just wear concealer only. The Tarte Shape Tape is one of my favorite concealers out there, and I decided to review it today.
The Tarte Shape Tape Concealer retails for $25 and is cruelty-free, gluten free, and vegan. I purchased the shade “Fair Beige.” The shade was actually a little light for me, but I can still make it work. One thing I noticed right off the bat is that they had a bigger variety of fair tones. Usually, when I purchase concealer, I just grab the lightest one. With this concealer, they had more options, which was definitely a bonus.
Next, I want to talk about the coverage. This concealer is REALLY full coverage. If I’m having a bad skin day or I have a particularly bad blemish, this saves me. It is very thick, but as I said the thickness is really useful for full coverage, and it was still easy to blend. I also noticed the concealer lasted pretty long. I would wear it for several hours, and it didn’t seem to move.
With this concealer a little bit goes a long way. You don’t need very much to cover up a blemish or your under eyes. This is a huge bonus, considering the price. I cannot tell how much product is in the container, but it seems like there is a decent amount, and it will hopefully last a while.
Here’s a swatch that isn’t blended at all, so you can see color and consistency.
Here’s a swatch that was a little more blended(I didn’t blend all the edges though). Thank you to A Brash Attitude for the pen swatch idea.
Ultimately, I absolutely loved this concealer, and I would definitely recommend buying it, even for the price. Currently, it is my favorite concealer out there, and I think you will love it too!
