Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer
There has been so many product launches over the past several months. It seems as though EVERY cosmetic line has their own rendition of the same product. They all have to compete with one another, I get it. For the consumer It can be a bit overwhelming, which should you invest your time and money into? Well I caved and gave into the hype and purchased the new Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer. Now this is touted as the worlds best concealer to hit the market yet. Sold exclusively at ULTA and ULTA.com and their are six shades to choose from, yeah not many..I know however that’s Tarte for you.
The Deets: Sculpt and highlight as you mask imperfections with this 2-in-1 full coverage concealer. The hydrating, longwearing formula delivers natural, radiant coverage across all skin types so you can instantly brighten and cover acne, dark circles and redness while softening the look of pores and fine lines. Wear it 1-2 shades lighter or darker, and it works as a creamy highlighter or contouring stick with a lightweight, blendable formula and tapered wand applicator ideal for precise strobing and sculpting. Powered by Amazonian clay and conditioning mango seed and shea butters, the nutrient-rich concealer helps promote skin elasticity and illumination with each crease-free application. Cruelty free, gluten free, vegan.
Personally I have to agree with all of the claims. That said, how does it compare to the original Tarte Maracuja Creaseless that I have fallen head over heels in love with? First off, they are completely different in their own way. The Maracuja Creaseless is wayyyyyyy more emollient and offers more blending time leaving you with more wiggle room to finish your contour and set the face all at once if that’s your method. Secondly, I find it to be just a tad bit richer and creamier in consistency.
The new Tarte Shape Tape requires rapid fire! Blend and Set! This is because it dries down to a setting point. When this happens, there is no budging it. Also It’s perfect for travel as it arrives packaged nice and slim for easy transport, and won’t destroy your makeup bag with spillage. I love them both as each serves It’s purpose one just different than the other.
Until Next Time,
Always Remember To Wake up Pretty!
