Have you been on the hunt for a creamy concealer that doesn't leave you looking cakey or oily?
If so I have the perfect concealer for you. 🙌🏻⭐️ I recently tried a Tarte Concealer in their new Ultra Creamy Shape Tape Concealer line.
If you want an HONEST review of Shape Tape keep reading! ❤️
Tarte's iconic Shape Tape Concealer was released in 2016 and has taken over the beauty game 💋.
It's still Tarte's number one concealer for covering dark circles and uneven skin tone. However, they've been working on improving the line with the Shape Tape Ultra Creamy line ⭐️🙌🏻.
This concealer is full coverage, naturally moisturizing, and has a matte finish 💧. This concealer provides 24-hour hydration which is perfect for anyone who has dry skin like me.
Your skin will look smoother, plumper, and more youthful 🧴. There's no cracking or caking up on your dark circles or blemishes.
This is a crease-proof, cruelty-free, vegan, and waterproof concealer which is a huge bonus for me 🌿. If you're looking to purchase shape tape for yourself you can find it at Ulta. The Ultra Creamy line retails for $30 and is available in 35 different shades 🛍💰.
This shade range includes a variety of undertones so you can find the perfect match for your skin tone.
🤔How To Use🤔
Step 1: Prep your base 💧 - Whether you're going for a full beat or just a light coverage over dark circles and uneven skin tone it's important to prep your skin. Complete your skincare and apply a layer of foundation.
Step 2: Apply 🧴 - Apply to imperfections and dark circles. A little goes a long way so I recommend dotting the product on with the doe foot applicator and blending it out. If you need more coverage, apply more.
Step 3: Don't Forget to Set! 🌿 - To make your concealer last longer make sure you're pressing a setting powder into your concealer. This will help create a natural matte finish and solidify your shape tape in place.
Pro Tip: Use this Tarte Concealer on your eyelids as an eyeshadow primer 💗. This will make your shadow pop and give it more lasting time.
You can use a damp beauty sponge 💧, your fingers or a brush to blend out this concealer. I personally like to use a sponge for a more natural matte finish that looks flawless.
🗝️Key Decision Factors🔓
🛍️ Packaging 🛍️
I love the doe foot applicator that's on the Shape Tape Concealers. I think it makes it the perfect applicator and it applies just enough product at a time. It's super easy to just dot it on and then blend it out.
🌿 Formula 🌿
This Tarte Concealer is extra hydrating which is perfect for my dry skin. It makes my under eyes moisturized without causing creasing. It contains shea and mango butter to moisturize and preserve hydration.
❤️ Coverage ❤️
The Ultra Creamy Shape Tape concealer definitely has full coverage. It covers all of my dark circles and uneven skin tone. I found it to be so pigmented that I didn't need that much.
🙌🏻 Texture 🙌🏻
I found this concealer to have a very rich and creamy texture. Usually, I stay away from creamy concealers because they can slip and become oily, but not this Tarte Concealer.
⭐️ Finish ⭐️
This concealer is hydrating without being too much. It has a natural matte finish that looks flawless all day. I also love that this is a waterproof concealer so you can wear it for a light-coverage beach/pool day if you want.
✅What I Loved
✅Natural Matte Finish
❌What I Didn't Like
This is a pricey concealer, but I think it's worth it 💸. Because you don't need to use much of the product at a time, you don't have to replace it very often. I think the quality of this Tarte Concealer outweighs the price.
I don't love that you can only find Shape Tape at Ulta 🛍. It's sometimes an inconvenience to go and pick it up so I usually grab more than one. I also order it online to avoid driving to Ulta, but you have to plan out when you need more.
Because of Tarte Shape Tape's popularity, it's no surprise that there are dupes out there. These are three concealers that are similar to Tarte Concealer. 💜
🌼Glossier Stretch Concealer
Glossier is known for its "clean girl aesthetic" and natural-looking products and this concealer is no different 💗.
The Glossier Stretch Concealer is a pot concealer that gives a brightening effect and blends seamlessly into your skin ⭐️. It is a buildable concealer that covers dark circles and uneven skin tones.
It leaves a dewy and glowy finish that flexes with your skin instead of caking up. It comes in 12 different shades and retails for $20 💸.
You can purchase this concealer on Glossier's website 📱.
I like that it's a more affordable concealer. It's also cruelty-free and fragrance-free which is a huge plus for me. This concealer blends easily with your fingers, beauty sponge, or a brush so it's very versatile. 🙌🏻✅
According to multiple reviews, this concealer oxidizes and doesn't have the best coverage 👎. It becomes oily after a while and tends to slip around your face and sinks into creases. I also don't love the pot packaging because I think it's harder to apply 💔.
🌻IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Neutralizing Color-Correcting Cream
The Bye Bye Neutralizing Color-Correcting Cream from IT Cosmetics isn't like most concealers 🍃. Instead, this works to even out skin tone by using color-correcting pigments.
It comes in three different shades that hydrate, soothe, and moisturize your skin while covering blemishes. It's super blendable and has full coverage that looks natural on all skin types 🙌🏻.
You can purchase this neutralizing cream at Ulta, or online for $35 💰🛍.
This is a super gentle formula that covers redness and hydrates your skin 💧. I like how hydrating and calming this product is. It's easy to apply and can be worn with or without foundation ❤️.
With only 3 different shades it doesn't work on every skin tone. It also comes in the smallest pot, it looks like a sample size. You pay $35 for 0.37 fl oz, and you have to use a lot of it to get good coverage 👎💔.
🌷Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Cream Concealer
This Cream Concealer is a duo stick. This duo-sided product applies a full-coverage concealer that has an easier-than-ever touch-up product on the other side 💜.
It blurs imperfections and smooths textured skin while also making touch-ups simple. Each side has high-pigmented formulas that are weightless and full coverage.
This cream concealer retails for $32 and comes in 16 different concealing shades. You can find it at Sephora, Ulta, and online 🛍️ ✅.
I adore how easy it is to reapply concealer with this product. Everyone needs a touch-up every now and then and now you can get it without smudging your makeup. 🙌🏻💋💗
I don't love the shade range for this product. I don't think they cater to many undertones and darker shades 👎. And because it is a dual-action concealer, each side has a very little amount of the actual product ❌. This means that you're going to have to restock more often.
⭐️Why Trust Me⭐️
I've been a fan of the coverage that the original Shape Tape concealer provided, but it dried out my under eyes so badly that I hated using it. 😢
When I saw that Tarte Concealer was coming out with the Ultra Creamy line I knew I had to try it out. 🤩
This concealer is extremely full coverage and lasts all day long 💜. I love using this on my more makeup-heavy days for a natural matte finish that covers my dark circles and uneven skin tone.
I absolutely recommend this Tarte Concealer enough for anyone who has dry skin. ⭐️
🤔Q & A!❓
1. Which Concealer Is Best From Tarte?💙
The original Tarte Shape Tape Concealer is still their most popular concealer, but I prefer the Ultra Creamy formula 💜. It depends on your skin type and what kind of product you're looking for.
2. Is Tarte or Too Faced Concealer Better?💛
The Shape Tape Concealer currently has better/more reviews ⭐️⭐️. They're both full-coverage concealers with doe foot applicators. However, the Too Faced applicator has a bit more of a scoop so it grabs more product 🧴.
3. Is Tarte Shape Tape Concealer Full Coverage?💜
Yes! The Shape Tape Concealer is extremely full coverage 🙌🏻. It blends out for a natural matte finish and looks flawless for up to 16 hours ⏰.
4. How Do I Choose A Concealer Shade?💚
For a brightening effect, choose a concealer that is half a shade lighter than your foundation ❤️.
However, for blemishes around your face that you don't want to brighten, choose a shade that is close to your foundation shade 💜.
5. Is Tarte Shape Tape Concealer Waterproof?🧡
Yes! Both the original Shape Tape and the new Ultra Creamy Shape Tape are waterproof formulas. 💧⭐️
I've loved using the new Tarte Concealer. It's extremely hydrating and nourishing on my dry skin 💧🧴🌿.
If you set it properly, it dries down into a nice, natural matte finish that's completely full coverage. I can't stop recommending this product to all of my friends and it's become a holy grail product for me 🏆!
