Tarte Shape Tape Concealer Review

Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer has gotten quite a bit of attention. With mixed reviews and little use by the South Asian community, I wanted to give Tarte Shape Tape Concealer a try for myself.

My skin is dry and tends to stay clear. My under eye area is dark. Between the lack of sleep and bruising due to allergies, I always need to layer my concealers to achieve a flawless look.

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer Claims

On Tarte’s website, the product is described as, “A vegan friendly, creamy concealer for radiant coverage and contouring.”

Did you know one shape tape is sold every 26 seconds?

The Tarte Shape Tape Concealer is exclusive to Ulta. Ulta claims, “Sculpt and highlight as you mask imperfections with this 2-in-1 full coverage concealer. The hydrating, long-wearing 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. Apply it with the all-in-one Quickie Blending Sponge (sold separately) for a quick, complexion fix and flake-free finish anywhere.”

The concealer comes in 14 colors. I use “light sand,” suited for light skin with yellow undertones.

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer Looks

Look 1: I Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel as moisturizer, Rimmel London Fix & Perfect Pro Primer, Benefit Erase Paste in Dark, and Stila Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer  (just the foundation). I set my face with Rimmel Stay Matte Powder.

These pictures were taken around 6:00pm as the sun was setting. I did not feel like I was wearing a heavy face, the concealer blended easily with a damp beauty blender, and I am pleased with the photos.


Look 2: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel as moisturizer, Rimmel London Fix & Perfect Pro Primer, Wet’n’Wild Photo Focus Foundation, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. 

The application of Shape Tape is easy and smooth and the finish is consistent: flawless.


Tarte Shape Tape Concealer Verdict

I have used the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer for a few weeks now and I am a happy customer. The concealer has given me a more flawless look than my previous favorite Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer Treatment. Tarte Shape Tape gets a thumbs up. I may be using this concealer exclusively.
