Tarte Shape Tape Concealer Review



I have wanted to get this Tarte Shape Tape Concealer since the whole makeup world seemed to go mad about it. I don’t think anybody can deny that when people use this is looks completely flawless and perfected. I wanted to wait to try it out though to give myself some time to look at reviews and videos to see how to performs. I am always sceptical about trying a product straight away because most of the content online is paid for or they got it free in PR.
Anyway, when I went to go any buy this because of the exclusivity of this product in the US, the only places that you get can get this here in the UK is through QVC or direct from Tarte themselves. QVC charge a ridiculous amount for this because they know that makeup crazy people like me will pay above the odds for it, and they don’t even stock all of the shades. And when you buy from Tarte direct in the US you pay near enough the same in carriage and taxes as what you do for the product itself.
So, I just waited. I thought that I wasn’t in any rush for it and I would get it when there was an offer on. The good thing about Tarte themselves is that they quite often have quite a few free shipping weekends throughout the year, especially when it is the American holidays. Then when they had one of these offers on I went online and snatched one up, so in the end I paid £119 for the product and £3 for taxes and VAT, which I thought was quite fair.



I ordered it on a bank holiday Monday and I got it exactly one week later, which I think is really reasonable to say the distance that it had to travel to get to me. Plus, there DHL and then Yodel tracking system is really good and updates you every step of the process, which is exactly what I like when I have bought something, I like to know where my money is bouncing around. I would be more than happy buying from Tarte again, but I would wait for free shipping. I worked it out if I didn’t get the free shipping, I would have ended up paying £39.
As soon as this come in through the post I had to try it out. When I first started using it I just tried it using foundations that I know work well for me, so I could really see how the concealer performed on its own. Pretty much straight away I knew that I loved it. Any full coverage concealer in my book is a winner and this one has well and truly stole my heart, Recently I have had quite a few concealers that I have loved and this is definitely right up there with the rest of them.
I have just been using this anywhere that I would normally conceal/highlight, so I take it in the centre of my forehead, down the bridge of my nose, underneath my eyes and in the centre of my chin. Then I blend it all out using my damp Beauty Blender. I don’t think I would ever another tool to blend in concealer after using this. And I think the Beauty Blender is perfect for blending this with it being such a full coverage product.



Like I said, this is a very full coverage concealer. I can remember when I first swatched this on the back of my hand, it literally made my skin look like porcelain when I blended it in. This underneath the eyes covers absolutely everything and hides every single one of my imperfections ranging from darkness co my pores, it just airbrushes everything out and makes me look really smooth and even.
You also get a really good amount of product in this tube. There is 10ml in here which is more than in a standard concealer, you normally get around 7ml, which I know isn’t a huge difference, but it is a good thing never the less. Plus, with how pigmented this product is, you only need a really small amount so this one tube is going to last a really long time.
I really love this concealer and I am obsessed with how it looks. It is really nice and full coverage and just looks so stunning on the skin. I know for a fact that I will be repurchasing this without a doubt. As normal I will link down below to this product, in case you want to check it out.
Let me know in the comments down below if you have tried this concealer and what you thought about it!

  2. I'm so tempted to get the Shape Tape and I think the coverage is what is putting me off. Do I really want something THAT full coverage on my skin? (I know, weird thing to wonder) but I'm still so tempted!

    1. Even the coverage of this concealer is intense, when you blend it out with something like a Beauty Blender, you can get a lighter coverage!
