WORTH THE HYPE? | TARTE SHAPE TAPE CONTOUR CONCEALER LIGHT MEDIUM REVIEW

Worth The Hype? Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer in Light Medium Review and Quickie Blending Sponge
I purchased the Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer and the Quickie Blending Sponge (£27) from QVC, they still have the same deal available where you can get both for £27. Alternatively, if you are just interested in one of the products the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer (£19) is available here and the Quickie Blending Sponge (£13) can be bought here. The shades available on the QVC website are limited so bear that in mind, I chose the shade Light Medium. More often than not, these concealers are constantly selling out. Why? Because they are so massively hyped by all the beauty "gurus" I watch. In short, the reason they are so popular and highly praised are due to the insane amount of coverage it offers. Shape Tape is marketed as a do-it-all concealer, it will brighten your under eyes, cover your blemishes, chisel your cheekbones. You can use it for anything and everything. It is cruelty free, gluten free (never heard this in relation to beauty products before) and vegan.

Worth The Hype? Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer in Light Medium Review and Quickie Blending Sponge
The packaging is gorgeous, it is quite a bit larger than all the other concealers I own. You get 10ml of product which is the same for the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. The wand is also considerably thicker and bigger too. The formula is quite thick but creamy and oh my is it pigmented, for that reason choosing the right shade is important. Light is far too light for me, I wish I had gone for a darker shade. Just a single dot underneath my eyes is enough to eradicate any darkness or discolouration. I honestly do think it is the best concealer I have ever used, in terms of coverage. Your dark circles will be history if you use this, it is incredible. The concealer contains ingredients like sunflower seed oil and shea butter, so although it is thick it doesn't feel drying beneath the eyes at all. I haven't noticed it creasing, but that is not something I have an issue with normally. I'm not sure I would say that it has knocked my Collection concealer off the top spot just yet because although I appreciate the full coverage it is not a necessity day in and day out for me. 

Worth The Hype? Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer in Light Medium Swatch and Review
You can see above and below, that is just that one swipe of concealer blended out. I think it could cover my whole face! The great thing about concealer is that no matter what shade you get you can adapt it to make it work for you. The way I use it as I just dot a little in the darkest crevice by my eye and blend it out with the Quickie Sponge. My favourite technique with this concealer is blending out with a sponge, whether it be the beauty blender, miracle complexion sponge or the quickie sponge. A short summary of my thoughts on the Quickie Sponge is that it works great, but I don't like how angular it is. I prefer other sponges based on this as both the Miracle Complexion Sponge and OG Beauty Blender have a rounded edge and I like that dimension to my sponges. 

Worth The Hype? Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer in Light Medium Swatch and Review
Overall, this concealer really impressed me. It is probably the best I have ever used. If you struggle with covering your under-eye circles and faff around with colour correctors I strongly recommend trying out this concealer. It is unbelievable how supremely full coverage it is, yet it still blends easily and lasts all day. I can't personally attest towards how it works for contouring, I would suggest using it very sparingly as it is so pigmented but I don't have a single bad thing to say. I would happily pay £19 for this because it knocks any other concealer I have tried out of the park. It is a little much for everyday but it can easily be sheered out, I like mixing a little with my eye cream and using it under the eyes to sheer out the product. It is such a beautiful concealer. If you have yet to find a concealer that ticks all boxes I urge you to give this a try. Thank you for reading. Take care. 

What is your favourite concealer?

Love 
Kiran

  3. I need this! I've been seeing everyone use it and sounds amazing. I think I'd just but it without though the sponge though. Is that the shade fair swatched in the picture? xx

  8. You're not the only person who has claimed this concealer is probably the best they ever used and now I'm really feeling that I am missing out. Maybe I'll need to place another Sephora order soon....

  10. That concealer give a really nice coverage! I don't usually go for full coverage concealers as I always use more than I should and end up having to redo some parts of my makeup, this would come handy for bad skin days! x

  14. I've been trying to steer clear from beauty gurus because they will suck me in to buying products I don't need. I suffer from really dark circles, and if you say it has good coverage then I have got to try this!

    1. Same! I was so sceptical especially when they say something is "so pigmented and full coverage and you only need a really tiny amount" and then they proceed to cover their whole face with it. Umm, what? But this is super full coverage, the only explanation I have for them using so much is that they are on camera a lot and want that flawless look xxx

  15. Oh my, this sounds like a really great concealer! Sounds similar with MUFE HD new concealer in term of formula and consistency.
