Here’s a review of Tarte’s Maracuja Creaseless Concealer. Tarte claims that this concealer is full coverage, waterproof and visibly brightens, smoothes and hydrates skin. This is $29 CAD in Sephora.ca. You can also purchase this in Tarte Cosmetics. I use this underneath my eyes as a way to reduce the dark circles under my eyes. Every morning regardless if I use liquid foundation or loose powder foundation, I apply Origins Eye Doctor then I use Giorgio Armani’s correcteur in #1 then I use a little bit of this concealer under my eyes. This concealer is perfect for the winter months where your skin tends to get really flaky and dry. I did bought this concealer during the winter months therefore I haven’t used it as a summer concealer. Anyway, after I apply the concealer, I set it with a powder or if I am using a loose mineral powder, I set it with that. I do use the Real Techniques blush brush to set the concealer. I only dab the brush on my under eye so that the concealer doesn’t smear all over my under eyes.
This concealer does last more than my typical 8 hour work day. It’s very pigmented therefore a little goes a long way. I have the color light medium and may need a darker color during the summer where I am all tanned. According to the packaging, the concealer does not contain any parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate and synthetic fragrance. With that in mind, the concealer has no scent whatsoever.
Also it states that the concealer has vitamin C, vitamin E, maracuja oil and mineral pigments. In terms of creasing, most concealers that I’ve used tend to crease by the end of the day, hence why I set my concealer with powder everyday.
The only con that I find with this concealer is that the net weight is 8 g/0.28 oz. That’s not much at all. When you buy the product for the first time, it feels like the tube is empty or halfway finish. It doesnt look like Tarte filled up the entire tube with concealer which sucks because its a large tube but almost as if it is empty inside. I havent had this concealer for a month and already it looks like I’m almost out of it. I have the Kat Von D concealer that I’ve used for months and it still looks like it would last for a year.
Overall, I would give this concealer a 8 / 10. It loses two points because Tarte chose to not fill up their tubes to its fullest. It is almost $30 so I’d rather get my dollars worth. I might repurchase it in the future but not anytime soon. I’d like to try their Amazonian clay waterproof concealer and see if I can get more product there. That’s my review of Tarte’s Maracuja Creaseless concealer. Hope you enjoyed the review.
