Tarte shape tape dupe!

It’s no secret that I absolutely love the Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer. It’s full coverage, super long wearing and does not crease. So when I heard there was an affordable dupe, I had to give it a try

 

The Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define concealer boasts 18 shades and retails for £4 .I feel for a drug store concealer the shade range is pretty good. It has light to mid tone to deeper skin tones. My only slight moan is that all the shades seem to have almost a pink undertone to them. I’m far more suited to a yellow undertone, so it’s hard to find a good shade match.

I own the shades C5 and C 13. Admittedly I got the shade C13 to contour. This is not doable with these concealers. They dry matte very fast and you have no time to blend them out. However, as a concealer they work very well. Similarly to the Tarte Shape Tape concealer they come with a large doe foot applicator. This is the only drug store concealer I’ve seen that comes with a larger applicator. This allows you to cover the areas you want with one or two swipes. The formulation is creamy and  full coverage. It blends out nicely, providing you do it soon after application. Saying that, it definitely does not have the same wear power of the Tarte Shape Tape.

 

Overall this is a great cheaper alternative to the infamous Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer. Plus you can pick it up at your local Superdrug!
