Hey guys! Welcome back. Happy Saturday. As many of you may know I recently purchased the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. When I got it I tried it and honestly wasn’t as impressed as I was hoping I would be. For $27 I was expecting to have my socks blown off. That wasn’t my first impression. I had high expectations going in, but having spent$27 on a concealer I feel like I am obligated to that expectation. But that’s not what this post is about. If you want a full review on the product comment down below so I know to do that.
This post is actually comparing the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer with the Maybelline Better Skin Concealer. When first trying the Tarte concealer it reminded me a great deal of the Better Skin concealer so I decided to try one on one side of my face and the other on the other side of my face. This is what I discovered.
They both have a very thick consistency and can be a little harder to blend out. So in that way they are the same. They apply the same in their smoothness. Neither one looks very natural and both give a highlighted effect.
The Tarte Shape Tape has a bigger application and you get more product. You do get a lot of product on the applicator and it only takes a small amount to do the job. If you apply to much it can be a little harder to blend and so forth. So just be careful of that. Because a little bit goes such a long way you will get your money’s worth with this product which is something very admirable. I appreciate the fact that they made this in a way that will last a long time and is such a high impact product.
The Better Skin has a smaller applicator and comes with less product. However, it is a drugstore product so you can’t expect much. For what you get though it is really great. You don’t need a lot of product with this one either but for a super full coverage finish you do need a bit more.
As far as the comparison goes, I do think they are really similar. If you are tight on money or just don’t want to spend all that money on a concealer I would say go for the Better Skin. The finish is the same and they last about the same length of time. The packaging is very similar and they both look the same on the skin (my skin anyway). So it’s really just a preference on what you want to buy.
