The hunt for the best concealer is not yet complete. So I splurge myself for a high end brand concealer. All these years I only tried drugstore brand. So far I am not impressed but I do find some that woks well on me. I love trying out different concealer to really find THE ONE that I would lift this up and say "Nants ingonyama bagithi Baba!" Ok I'm just kidding. I love Tarte since I tried their Amazonian Clay Blush. I also love the concept of product that they have that they are all formulated with no Parabens, Sulfates & Phthalates ( chemicals that can cause cancer). At first I wanted to get the Amazonian clay waterproof 12-hour concealer. But when I saw it at Sephora, it is so small and I don't think it worth spending on it. This concealer is said to be full coverage, waterproof and creaseless.
What I like about it. The coverage is amazing and the consistency is thick but easy to blend. It has a little bit of brightening effect so it works great for covering my under eye circle. Yes, it does not really crease, By what I mean "does not really" crease it that with the right blending technique. A little goes a long way so if you apply the right amount under your eye, it sets nicely there all day.. I use my Zoeva 110 Face Shape brush to blend it in. I love the design of the packaging. The lid is made out of this wood which I find sleek! It has this a bit of a sticky consistency which leave my skin moisturize and dewy. I usually top it off with loose powder and it sit nicely all day on my skin.
What I don't like about it. The plastic tube! It is so hard to control how much I want the right amount of product to be dispense out. I always end up with way more than I need and lastly result in waste. Because I don't really need that much. It is a pricey concealer so i do feel that I waste a lot of money if I just swipe it off and throw it away. It is great for under eye but not really on spots. At the end of the day, my undereye makeup looks pretty good but on the spots that i try to hide just starts to fade and leave my spot more noticeable. Because after all this is suggested to be use and best to be use fir your under eye.
Overall & Recommendations. This is a great concealer for your under eye. For my opinion, this need to be set with powder. Or else it can look pretty dewy looking. great for people who have dry to normal skin type & combination. May not suitable for oily skin type. Do mind that it has a sticky consistency and you need a good loose powder or powder to set it in. I heard Ben Nye Powder works great with this. This is still not the best concealer that I would repurchase again because I might want to try and find other brand that worth investing in.
