Tarte Creaseless Concealer Review

I have been curious about this Tarte Creaseless Concealer for what seems like years now. I have wanted it since the first say I saw it. It must have been when somebody used it in some sort of YouTube tutorial, which now years later I have no idea what video it was or which YouTuber…

I looked at it online because you can’t buy it here in the UK but some of the prices were just crazy for what it was, which at the end of the day is just a small tube of concealer. I think I first saw it on a site called Rose Beauty, which sells American cosmetics here in the UK, but they were charging nearly double the retail price. I may like beauty things but I ain’t stupid!

I also saw that I could have purchased it on QVC, which here in the UK is a teleshopping channel, which just didn’t seem that great so I just left it. That was until I did my first Sephora order. I was ready to put my order through because I desperately wanted to Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation and it had finally come in stock in my shade so I thought while I was at it I may as well get the Tarte Creaseless Concealer.

It arrived and I have never been so happy to receive a package full of makeup. I received it on the Friday and then I literally spent every minute of my weekend playing around with it.

First thing I noticed about this concealer was how bloody thick it was. And, yes, I had to put the word bloody in there just to reiterate just how thick this really is. I went to squeeze some out of the tube and nearly snapped one of my acrylics off because it took that much force to get some out. At first I thought that it had some kind of stopped in it because it was that hard to come out.

After putting some elbow grease into it I did get some out of the tube and onto my spatula and it came out like sausage meat. In a long thin tube. Kind of like the poo emoji, which I know isn’t a great visual, but I’m keeping it real.

I have used this a couple different ways now and I have to say that as a concealer I really do like it. Because I knew this was creaseless and full coverage I did buy it with the intention of using it purely underneath my eyes but it really is good for use all over the face. I have even used it on my body to cover bruises from ballet and it has worked a treat.

I have applied this using a MAC Concealer Brush and then patting it into the skin using a damp Beauty Blender, also by applying straight with a MAC 130 Duo Fibre Brush and my favourite way is to use a MAC 217 Blending Brush and really buff it into the area underneath my eyes. The 217 is a great brush for this because it really works the product into the skin.

I can’t say that I have used another concealer that has been similar to this. Like the name says it is completely creaseless but it is really thick. The only concealer I can think of which is remotely similar is the MAC Studio Fix Concealer but this is a solid product and can be hard to blend.

I do love this product. And I have planned to put another Sephora order through soon so I can get a few shades of this so I can put them into my kits. Because this under the eyes of nervous brides, will be perfect!
