When a product reaches global iconic status, it is absolutely no fluke and whilst one product absolutely does not fit all, with one sold every 26 seconds, it must be doing something right. I am a self confessed Shape Tape fan and have been long before its UK launch 2 years ago.
Vegan friendly and dermatology tested, this skin friendly product is suitable even for sensitive skin. Powered by some skin nourishing ingredients such as Shea Butter, Mango Seed Butter and Liquorice Root Extracts, not only does it conceal any darkness and imperfections but it hydrates the skin, brightens it and protects against free radicals! All that from a concealer? Pass it by the bucket load!!
I use Shape Tape in so many different ways within my make up regime. If like me you struggle with dark circles under the eyes, this just makes them disappear, and what I love, love, love about it, is that I don’t have to set it with powder! It settles down to a matte finish within seconds, has a non drying feel on the skin and is so quick and easy to use.
I have the shade Light-Medium and it is lovely at brightening the area, covering the dark circles and gives an air brushed finish. It is so smooth and does not crease or settle into my fine lines and wrinkles at all. The consistency is not the typical super creamy under eye concealer texture you may be used to. It is matte but without being dry. I need only three dots and to be fair, I do not even need to apply this in the typical “V” shape as when using the blender sponge included – which I dampen a little – it covers a huge area and allows you to blend it up and out to the hairline, creating a beautiful lifting effect. I absolutely love using these two together, I am always amazed at the coverage and how long lasting it is under my eyes. An absolute essential part of my kit when creating looks that I will be filmed or photographed in.
Shape Tape also covers the fine lines around my eyes and conceals the pores on my nose. The wand is a great shape but to be honest, you are better using that just to dot on the product, then use the pointy end of the Quickie blending sponge to spread. Don’t forget though, this is not just for giving you flawless looking under eyes, this is a concealer and does a fine job covering blemishes and imperfections without caking, drying or clumping.
Tarte Shape Tape is also a great contour and highlight product so you can choose lighter or darker shades for your needs. These can be put anywhere you would apply your contour colour and blended out with the wider end of the sponge. The sponge can be easily rinsed out under water to clean away excess product.

In my opinion Shape Tape is an absolute must have in any make up bag. Buy they collection and share with a friend… or not 😉
The great news is that until 30th June it is available as a duo in a Todays Special Value on QVCUK whilst stocks last. The price for two Shape Tape concealers, with one sponge, in gift box is £37.98 plus p&p which is incredible value. You can purchase HERE
