Yowzie I FINALLY got my greedy hands on the Tarte Double Duty Beauty Shape Tape Contour concealer (did not know that was the full name lol) that was incredibly hyped up and making the beauty world go crazy. To be fair, I actually did try purchasing this numerous times when I first started hearing about it but it was also ridiculously difficult to purchase my shade-it was sold out every time. I eventually forgot about it and popped into Ulta the other day and saw the Tarte shelves packed with them! So let’s get on to the first impression…
This concealer is $24 and you get 0.33 oz of product. I don’t know about ya’ll but the price is not bad! The Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless concealer is only 0.16 oz and $28. The NARS Radiant Creamy concealer is 0.22 oz and $30. I am just comparing it to other concealers that I have used and loved in the past. Strictly talking about product/price-you are getting more product for less money with this one.
Nothing too different except for the significantly larger applicator. I actually like the bigger applicator: it covers more surface area and if you only have small areas to conceal, just use the tip of it.
This has a thick consistency and does take a litttllleeee more time to blend then other concealers but trust me, it is worth it. I have actually seen and read very few reviews that people did not enjoy it because how thick it is (that’s what she said). I personally don’t care/have not noticed a big difference.
What it Does/Wear
On the Ulta website, it claims to be able to conceal, contour, and/or highlight-depending on what shade you get obviously. It is supposed to be hydrating, long-wearing, and crease-free. I personally would use this for concealing acne scars and to highlight under the eyes. Coverage wise-amazing. It literally covers up the current acne residue on my cheeks seamlessly. I wore it throughout the day and it did not budge at all! It ALSO did not break me out which was great. Hydrating wise-not so sure…I normally don’t have dry skin so my face doesn’t need hydration haha. I might have to try applying this to my dry spots around the mouth to test the hydration part.
Love it. Highly recommend it. Easily one of the best concealers I have used yet. Get it. Try it. Enjoy it.
