Today is the launch of tarte’s new shape tape ultra-creamy concealer! This product combines the coverage and wearability of the original shape tape and combines it with hyaluronic acid, antioxidant-rich prickly pear, ginseng and vegan squalane to lock in moisture, help restore elasticity & promote firmness. I was able to get my hands on it pre-launch and have worn it each day since it arrived to test it out. On the first day I compared it side by side to the shape tape concealer and each day after that I wore it both with and without eye primer and with and without eye moisturizer. Today I’m excited to share with you all my findings!

tarte Concealers for Every Under-Eye Concern
The tarte website has a page dedicated to finding the right concealer for your skintype. I have listed out my four favorite tarte concealers below and why I would recommend them but I would highly suggest checking out this page as well!
My Top 4 Concealers
shape tape ultra-creamy concealer // This is officially my favorite of tarte’s concealers. I have worn shape tape for years. If you have followed along then you know I always suggest wearing a moisturizer and an under-eye primer beneath shape tape if you have under-eyes that are prone to dryness like mine. I found that with this new shape tape ultra-creamy concealer, I didn’t have to wear either! I still recommend an under-eye cream as a part of your skincare routine, but I think that this product is hydrating enough to be worn solo if you chose. If you have dry under-eyes or are a fan of the least amount of products as possible and still want a full-coverage concealer, then absolutely get this! With a built-in eye cream, it adds hydration for 24 hours so skin looks and feels moisturized. I also love that tarte is a brand formulated with high-performance naturals™ and I feel good about applying it directly to my skin.
shape tape concealer // Anything with a moisturizer built-in, like shape tape ultra-creamy concealer, is not going to “stick” to your skin (for lack of a better term) as well as the matte version of the same product. Some people might find shape tape concealer to be drying but nobody can deny its coverage. If you are more prone to oily skin and are looking for maximum coverage, I would recommend the original shape tape as it smooths, brightens and blurs the appearance of find likes for up to 16 hours of flawless wear.
Hydrocealer Concealer // Hydrocealer is considered the tinted moisturizer of concealers™, formulated with hydroflex technology™ that moves with your skin. It’s nourishing, conceals redness excellently and does a good job of coverage for dark circles. With a light to medium buildable coverage, this will be a lightweight no-makeup look as compared to the shape tape concealers above. It’s also made with caffeine to reduce inflammation & puffiness while smoothing, tightening & brightening.
Shape Tape™ Glow Wand // I really love this tarte concealer and right now you can get it along with one of the shape tape concealers in this Shape tape hydrate & glow bundle or this Shape tape star duo bundle. This product is great because it has liquid brighteners that will highlight your skin without glitter or shimmer. It delivers a soft-focus finish that leaves you looking dewy and fresh-faced. You can also use it to highlight your cheekbones and brow bones, not just on your under-eye area.
