I’ll begin this post by saying that I LOVE Tarte Shape Tape. It is truly one of the best things to happen to my face. But I wondered: Is there a drugstore makeup dupe for Tarte Shape Tape?
If you don’t want to pay the $27 for this miracle worker -OR- you want to conserve your Shape Tape (making it last longer) by not wearing it every single day, there is cheaper option. And it’s only $7!!!
It’s Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define. I own both, and Makeup Revolution has made the closest thing to Shape Tape that I’ve found so far. For filling in pores and smoothing out my face, there really is nothing like Shape Tape. BUT…
For covering dark circles, Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define is amazing!
In fact, it’s a thinner formula than Shape Tape, so some people might even like it better. If you’ve tried Shape Tape and it was too heavy for you, you’ll love Conceal and Define.
The Makeup Revolution Concealer:
- Is long-lasting
- Doesn’t look cakey
- Doesn’t crease up
I dot a little around my eye area and I blend it with the very brush pictured below.
Do not underestimate the power of the RIGHT makeup brush.
I spent a long time denying the importance of good makeup brushes. Once I tried some, I was convinced they really do make a difference in application. I’m NOT saying you need to run out and spend a ton, I have found some fabulous sets at Marshall’s. If you’re over 40 and you’re not already using some decent brushes, I encourage you to try them.
I love both concealers. They are the only ones I am currently using. If you’re heading to Ulta any time soon, pick up this amazing little concealer for only $7. You won’t regret it!
