The Lipstick League Question of the Week
Quick! Name the last concealer that you purchased and tell us how it’s been working for you.
G's answer: the last concealer I purchased was Tarte Shape Tape Concealer back in December. You may remember that I posted about a sale at that time on the Tarte site where you could get 30% off + free shipping on orders $25+ and it included Shape Tape Concealer (rare, since this product is usually excluded from sales)! I couldn't resist finally trying this product, but I have been waiting until I finished up all of my other concealers before using it. Well I finally finished my other concealers and started using Shape Tape a few weeks ago. And unfortunately (for my wallet) I LOVE it and now understand all the hype. It has beautiful coverage yet the formula isn't thick or cakey and it blends like a dream with just my fingers (although it's great with a sponge or brush too). What I love the most is that, even if I have a heavier eye cream on underneath it, I have yet to experience any creasing or caking throughout the day. That's very rare for me when it comes to undereye concealers. Also, the staying power is incredible. I'm seriously considering using some of the Ulta points I earned during the 21 Days of Beauty event to purchase another tube.
