I was flipping channels one day last week and saw a few minutes of Tarte on QVC. This was the first time I've ordered from QVC and was surprised to discover the items I ordered were not available either at Sephora or from Tarte's website. I don't know how long QVC gets the exclusive on these items. QVC also has video clips of the products if you want to learn how to use them. Here's the page for the concealer, just click the "video" tab right above the item's picture.
My order arrived within a couple of days, but I've been sick and haven't done much lately. Here's the concealer.
It came with the brush, choice of Light, Fair, Tan, Medium, or Deep. I went with the Light, assuming that it wouldn't be the best shade for me but also assuming I could work with it. $24.50 plus the shipping.
I put a small amount of concealer on my arm
then used the brush to blend it
this pic is slightly blurry but the color looks most true to life on me
It is a little too dark on me, slightly too warm / peachy / beige / IDK. This shade would likely work on most fair skinned ladies, but those of us who are a shade lighter than fair know everyone else's idea of fair isn't quite ours.
It takes a bit of a squeeze to get it out of the tube, which worried me. I was afraid it wouldn't blend well, but it's a nice consistency and easily blendable using the brush. The maracuja oil doesn't feel greasy or oily on my skin, but keep in mind my skin is seriously dry, and after battling a cold for a week, I'm in hyperdry. Oily skinned ladies might want to seek out a sample before buying a whole tube.
I didn't use this for my undereye circles, because I need a pink concealer. I did use this on the apples of my cheeks, where my rosacea is the worst. Although it wasn't the right shade to really disappear into my skin, the darker, more-yellow-than-my-skin concealer did minimize the redness. I wouldn't be able to wear the concealer alone, but under foundation it worked fine. Very little product is needed, so this tube should last me a long time.
I normally use Illamasqua cream foundation on those very red areas, but am hoping the maracuja oil in this Tarte concealer will help with my dry skin. I guess time will tell.
All in all, a good product and worth it, even if the shade isn't quite a match.
