Yep, you read right. As I’m sure you know, Tarte’s Shape Tape concealer is probably the most used/loved concealer at the moment. It’s been out for about a year now- and it has been every makeup lover’s go to for concealing and highlighting/contouring. It originally retailed at $24 and it is now up to $27 for a 0.33 oz tube. One thing I noticed personally is that I went through my tubes pretty fast. I also feel like I don’t use nearly as much as most people do, because it is so full coverage that I don’t think you need to use a ton to get the job done.
The main reason why I like the concealer is because of how full coverage it is, and how it blends effortlessly into the skin. The only downside is that it can be a little drying- but its not excessively drying on my skin. When suggesting concealers to clients, if the Shape Tape is too dry for them, I love to recommend the Too Faced Born This Way concealer. That concealer is amazing because it has hyaluronic acid, alpine rose and coconut water in it, to keep the under eye nice and hydrated. I actually sometimes mix Shape Tape with BTW concealer to get the coverage/hydration I want. BTW is amazing, but honestly it is not as full coverage as I personally prefer.
Anyway…. recently I was watching a YouTuber named Lustrelux or Katy, and she was talking about some of her favorite products recently. One of the products she mentioned is my new favorite concealer that this post is about…. and it is pictured below next to my Shape Tape.
It is called Make No Mistake and it is by Sephora Collection. I decided to pick this up in the same shade Katy uses during the VIB Rouge Sale. I am honestly SHOOK by this product. First of all, it retails for $14 for a 0.33oz tube. So about HALF the price of Shape Tape for the same amount of product. It is sooo creamy and hydrating, but not too much to where it creases. I’m going to show you a picture of it applied under my eyes before and after baking/setting with a banana powder.
Tarte Shape Tape color: Light Neutral
Sephora Make No Mistake color: 08 Caraway
I mean… it is just CRAZY how much more coverage the Sephora concealer has!!! As you can see in the Shape Tape pictures, I still have some visible darkness. In the first picture of the MNM concealer, you can see how much more hydration the product has. Even though I still have fine lines under my eyes, I definitely think they are less visible with the Sephora concealer. I applied about the same amount under each eye, and blended it out using a damp beauty sponge. To bake, I used the same sponge and translucent powder. To further set, I went over it with a fluffy brush and a yellow based brightening powder (banana powder). I am just so impressed and happy to have found a less expensive alternative to the Shape Tape. You guys have to go and pick one of these babies up, you’ll thank me later! Purchase the concealer here. 🙂
