Rated 5 out of 5 by IslandGirl96712 Absolutely the BEST
I love this concealer - period the end !!
This concealer hides my hyper-pigmentation & acne scars like a dream! It blends well with your finger, brush, or beauty blender (my preference). A little goes a long way - just dab it lightly and blend away. The doe foot applicator makes it even easier to apply.
The sponge - eh - not for me, i prefer to use the beauty blender; but this sponge could be useful if you 'bake' your make-up.
This concealer is so awesome, it was sold out on Tarte's own website and Ulta's website. Ahh, thank god for QVC - I purchased 2 so that i would have 1 on backup!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by CindyTN Best Concealer Ever! Great for Contouring
I'm a beauty blogger and beauty enthusiast and have tested many different concealers, truly putting them to the test based on specific criteria. I recently performed a comparison test of the Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer against 3 other popular high-end brand concealers on the market (which will remain unnamed). Tarte's Shape Tape outperformed all the other concealers by a mile, in every aspect that I tested. I applied Shape Tape under one eye and another brand under the other eye, repeating this test over the next 2 days to test each brand I was testing against. I tested the following: Coverage, blendability, tendency to crease, and performance/wear throughout a 10-hour period of normal wear. Tarte Shape Tape has become all the rage across the beauty community, and there's many reasons why it's become the new cult favorite! First, it blends like a dream. I recommend using a sponge (such as the one that comes with it or the other popular pink sponge... You know the one). This concealer is full coverage. There's nothing that it won't cover. It exceeded the coverage of all other brands that I tested, but it's not too heavy on the skin and blends out nicely. I recommend always setting your under eye concealer with a setting powder. This concealer is the only one I tested that never creased. Ever! Not even throughout the day after wearing it several hours. That's virtually unheard of! I'm 41 years old and have many fine lines under my eyes, so this quality alone was highly impressive and desirable. At the end of my 10 hour test, it looked exactly as it did when freshly applied. The coverage didn't slip or fade, and it looked beautiful. I purchased 2 shades to use for contouring, a light shade for under the eyes and a darker shade to carve out the cheekbones, chin, etc. The results are outright impressive, and I highly doubt you'll find another makeup artist or enthusiast (who has tested/used many different products) who won't agree that the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer set the new standard high for what a concealer should deliver. It is simply the best available.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lanie922 Concealer is good but sponge is awful.
I already have this concealer in light and love it, but it is a bit too light for me right now, so I ordered the light-medium. Light is neutral (slightly pink) but light/medium is extremely yellow so I am not sure it is going to work either. With that said, I still gave it 5 stars because I love the first one I purchased. It is FULL coverage, but yet it doesn't feel heavy. It feels light. I get creasing with a lot of concealers, but not this one. It is beautiful. I am just bothered that the light/medium is so yellow. I wish it was more pink, or even just a neutral/beige shade. As far as the sponge goes - I do NOT recommend it. I feel like it steals the product away.. and it is hard. That's a shame!
Rated 5 out of 5 by pixiepink as good as i have found to date!
Turned 50 this year! What happened to my eye area ladies!?!?!? It turned to dry and wrinkled over night!!! That being said, to date, this is the best I have found that doesn't make my eye area look so old and withered. Is it magical, no, but does a pretty good job!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Phantom46 Too Thick and Color is Off
Have been wanting to try this and sadly it didn't work for me. I got the Light/Medium and it was very yellow. Too much product on the applicator so I used a small amount on my finger and was still too much and didn't blend well for me.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ansa82 FINALLY a perfect concealer!
I've spent so many years and so much $ trying to find the best concealer for my undereye area. This one is IT! The best! Look no further just get this one! Easy to apply, no creasing or caking, its wonderful!!! Thank you Tarte!
Rated 3 out of 5 by dottielsj Not as good as I'd hoped
This concealer is extremely thick so a tiny bit goes a long way. The huge doe foot applicator is clumsy and delivers far too much product, even if I only use one small dot. But my main complaint is that I can still see my dark circles through this concealer, despite its claims of full coverage. Also QVC doesn't carry the full range of shades, which is a disappointment. In my opinion there are far better concealers out there, even in the drugstore. I will admit that Shape Tape goes on smoothly and is easy to blend. However, after using a wonderful setting powder that never gave me problems when I used it with other concealers, when used with Shape Tape the effect is quite cakey. This concealer is not all it's cracked up to be and certainly is not the be all and end all like so many reviewers claim. It certainly didn't work well for me and it drew attention to my fine lines, something that doesn't happen when I use my favorite brand. I don't know why I even tried this product because I was perfectly satisfied with my usual brand. I guess all the youtube hype had something to do with it. It was an impulse purchase at best. I wish I could return it. It's overpriced and definitely doesn't work well for me.
