Side by Side: Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Waterproof Concealer

Tarte’s heavy duty concealer, Maracuja Creaseless Waterproof Concealer ($24), has been hailed as one of the best concealers out there, like a ‘GPS for your skin’.  Our question was, what is Maracuja?  It’s actually maracuja oil, which Tarte says “helps to improve skin’s texture, tone and moisture content while imparting a brightening dewy, luminous finish.”  The ingredients in this full cover concealer are there to make your skin appear firmer, brighten up dark areas, and smooth out the skin with moisturizers.

So what did Lisa and Marcia think?  Read on for their take on Tarte’s Maracuja Creaseless Waterproof Concealer.

Lisa’s Side:

I am forever looking for the latest, best full-coverage concealer.  I have very dark circles under my eyes, which are getting more and more difficult to conceal.  I also have fine lines that are slowly turning into something more along the lines of ‘wrinkles’, so heavy duty concealers often crease on me.  Add to that my somewhat oily skin that makes most makeup fade within a few hours, and I have issues!  I was excited to try this concealer because I heard lots of good stuff about it.

Boy, is this stuff THICK!  I have problems even squeezing the product out because it’s so thick.  The first time I put on waaay too much.  This concealer is so concentrated and so pigmented you truly need very little to get wonderful coverage.  I like to apply this with a concealer brush, then tap it with my finger.  The body heat helps the concealer to blend in beautifully.  You end up with full coverage that looks very natural.

Because it’s waterproof, it really stays once it’s applied.  Yet it washes off easily with cleanser.  It does brighten the eyes and cover dark areas easily, and the name is right – it doesn’t crease.  Once I learned the correct amount for my eyes, I was doing a happy dance.  This concealer is a real winner and is now a staple in my stash.

Marcia’s Side:

Do you want your dark circles and blemishes to disappear? Do you want to find a concealer that will last during the upcoming heat and humidity of the summer? If you do, then you want Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer.

This is the perfect undereye concealer for me. If I’m wearing makeup I need concealer under my eyes and Tarte has been a savior. With sleep problems I often wake up with dark circles dragging down my eyes but I know just a TINY bit of this will last me the whole day. I always use my fingers to apply this because of the consistency. You need that little bit of heat to help it apply smoothly.

I typically mix it with my eye cream since it’s so thick. Even though I have to “dilute” it a little, it still lasts me all day. I rarely have to touch up in the evening. At $24 this is actually a steal. You need such a small amount that it’s going to last you a very long time before you repurchase it, which I’m sure you will after you see how terrific it works.

    Amazing Cosmetics is another wonderful concealer and one I used for a long time before I discovered IT Cosmetics and Tarte’s. They are similar in their density but I think Tarte’s creases less and lasts longer.
