Manny MUA, Jaclyn Hill, and countless other beauty gurus SWEAR by Tarte Cosmetics “Shape Tape” Concealer- an Ulta exclusive retailing at $25. After reading many reviews and looking at swatches I finally ordered it about a month ago. Here are my thoughts. The packaging is simple and fun, with a pretty large applicator wand inside.
Upon looking at swatches I observed that a lot of people were talking about the severe color change after oxidation with this concealer. Ordering online this was a nerve wracking thought; I could find the “perfect” shade, put it on and then 5 minutes later it could be too dark. After searching and searching, I picked Light Sand.
You guys. THIS is what I mean by shade change. This is the same shade, Light Sand. The left is immediately after swatching and the right is after 5 minutes of dry time. While this doesn’t effect product performance, it’s still a pretty drastic difference when you’re trying to pick your perfect color.
This product is awesome. It does everything it says it does. I couldn’t have been more pleased…. BUT… I’m allergic to it. I’m not sure whether my allergic reaction was due to the perfumy scent this product has OR the amount of dimethicone this product has, something myself and some people are sensitive to. Either way, I was so frustrated! I sold it to a friend of mine and have been trying to find one like it ever since.
Overall, I highly reccomend this concealer. It has buildable coverage, and although it is fairly expensive, you get ALOT. Hope this helped.
