The hype is real folks, the hype is very real! I couldn’t resist trying out the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer ($24) after hearing loads of rave reviews. Here are my thoughts.
This concealer comes is a range of 10 different colors. Good luck finding your color in stock in stores though. They are frequently out of stock so you’ll probably have the best luck finding your shade online.
I picked up the shade Light-Medium. I don’t like the whole highlighted undereye look on me so I was looking for a color to offer me coverage that matches my skin.
This color has peach undertones to it and matches my fair/light skin pretty well.
The first thing you’ll notice is that the tubes are much chubbier than most concealers. And when you open it up you’ll see that the doe foot applicator is quite large as well.
The most talked about key points for this concealer is its intense coverage and pigmentation. And boy, they ain’t lying!
Shape Tape concealer is very, very pigmented. It gives amazing coverage but surprisingly doesn’t feel heavy or cakey.
I was also worried about it becoming dry looking and emphasizing my fine undereye lines since I’m not exactly a spring chicken. But, again, I was very surprised to see that this does not settle and crease on me like most concealers do.
It has just the right consistency. It’s thin enough to make blending a breeze but still thick enough to provide great opaque coverage.
Wear time for me is pretty good as well. It stays put on my oily skin pretty much all day.
I’d definitely call this Tarte Shape Tape a hit instead of a miss. If you have dark circles and need good coverage, then this concealer is a must try. I think you’ll be pretty pleased with the results.
