After watching countless Youtube Beauty Guru’s rave about this concealer I decided to give it a try, although my shade was out of stock for a long time so it was a long wait.
Sadly in the UK the only place to buy (without customs) is QVC and you can only buy in a set that includes the blending sponge.

Before trying Tarte I was using the Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer, I found it to be good but not as thick coverage as I’d have liked. Although it worked well with my Double Wear foundation.

I was very excited when my QVC order arrived, unfortunately I didn’t rate the sponge and it’s sat gathering dust as I’d rather use my Beauty blender. However the concealer was bright and didn’t oxidise on my skin, when placed next to my Estee Lauder concealer it was much thicker and lighter which suits my very pale skin better.
I’ve used this for a number of months now and I have found that a little goes a long way, it’s very full coverage and provides the brightness my under eyes need.

Lets look at the pros and cons.
Pros

  • Full coverage
  • Light and bright.
  • Great packaging.
  • Easy application.
  • Easy to blend.

Cons.

  • Can only buy in the UK with the sponge.
  • Reacts with my Double Wear foundation.
  • Creases if not set with powder very quickly.

I can’t see myself ever changing to a different concealer as I really like the coverage and colour that this concealer provides. I need to try it with other foundations but my double wear is my go-to foundation, it does seem to react with it, appearing to move or thin the foundation out in the areas that it meets the concealer however if you are careful and don’t apply too far down it’s not noticeable.

Overall I really love this concealer and will be buying more before this one runs out. I think anyone that enjoys full coverage will really like this concealer and it is worth the hype.

Thank you for reading and I’m so sorry for the break, life has been pretty crazy lately however I hope to get back to a normal post schedule.
