My Experience with Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer:
A concealer is a staple in my makeup collection. I suffer from permanent hereditary dark circles which make me look ill if not properly concealed. I have been a fan of Tarte products in the past, hence I decided to give this product a go.
It comes in a squeeze tube which is frankly quite tiny for $24. I love the fact that this squeeze tube is extremely travel-friendly and hygienic to use.
This concealer is very thick, rich and creamy. Even though it is super thick, it blends easily with the fingertips or a buffing brush. I would not recommend blending this with a sponge as it wiped away more product than it deposited. It is very rich and hydrating and has an emollient quality to it. Due to this specific reason, it does tend to look quite greasy and shiny post application and it is imperative to set it with a oil-control setting powder to make it budge-proof; or it does tend to slide around and ruin the makeup. It will also make you lower lashline line makeup smear, if not set properly.Also, care must be taken to only apply as much as needed, and not to cake up and it will feel and look heavy and unflattering.
Once set, it does look quite natural and covers up pretty well. As claimed, it did not crease on me and felt quite comfortable and hydrating throughout the wear time.
The area around my eye tends to get incredibly oily whenever I wear makeup, which was true even when I wore this concealer. I did need to do around 2-3 touchups during the 8-9 hour wear time, just when it started to look shiny.
This concealer comes in a variety of shade. I picked up the shade Light-medium which is a good match for me. It has that salmon undertone, hence it color corrects as it conceals.
Overall, this is a good product, but it is not the best concealer out in the market. It does the job well by concealing where you need it, but it does take some work to make it look good. It will be an absolute disaster if you do not set it. Also, you will not like this product if you are not a fan of thick products; also those with oily eye area should totally skip this due to its extremely creamy nature.
Pros of Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer:
• Very hydrating, almost too hydrating
• Little goes a long way, it is important to not cake up this product, for it to look good.

Cons of Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer:
