The high-performance natural formula is infused with Tarte’s pure maracuja oil, which helps to improve skin’s texture, tone, and moisture content while imparting a brightening, dewy, luminous finish. In addition to promoting healthy skin, this velvety concealer is also ideal for masking discoloration and imperfections such as acne, blemishes, redness, scars, hyperpigmentation, and dark circles. This nutrient-rich, blendable, liquid concealer brightens and restores skin’s natural luster, leaving you with a flawless complexion.


Originally I had ordered Tarte’s Creaseless Concealer during it’s 30% off sale in Fair. When I received the product though, it was actually way too light for me. I wanted to use it on other parts of my face as opposed to just under the eyes and Fair would’ve made the dark spots stand out more than it would cover it. I went to Sephora to exchange for a shade darker and got Light-Medium instead. The first thing I noticed was the change in packaging. I wonder if Tarte had old stock for Fair so that’s what I received? I’m not sure if there had been a change in its packaging close to the time of purchase.

Concealers have a lot on their hands when it comes to fulfilling what it’s meant to do. As an under-eye concealer, it must be moisturizing enough that it doesn’t your eyes look dry and flakey. However, if it’s too creamy, it might sink into any fine lines. And most importantly, it must conceal whatever it was you want to conceal, leaving behind smooth, flawless skin. So how exactly does Tarte’s Maracuja Creaseless Concealer stack up?

Originally I had wanted to use this as an under-eye concealer since I was already using Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Concealer for any other face concerns that I needed to conceal. Light-Medium was fine for my under eyes since I didn’t want to have unnaturally pale eye bags. However, I think I could’ve done with Fair on my face overall during winter when I was much more pale. Light-Medium is a perfect shade for my skin right now though.

As an under-eye concealer it does a good job moisturizing your eyes. I have a problem usually with flakes there and when I use a concealer that isn’t creamy enough, it brings that all out. I still recommend regularly moisturizing appropriately before using any concealer under your eyes, but if you don’t need too much moisture there then Tarte’s concealer should do a fine job.

The only problem I have with this product is that it does sink into my fine lines a bit. I haven’t yet tried one that doesn’t do that, but it does a better job than my old KATE Covering Concealer. It’s not immediate so it’s nothing that I can’t deal with.

I also noticed that compared to my other concealers, it’s actually quite pigmented. I’ve seen some reviews that claim it is a full coverage concealer. I don’t know if I consider a full coverage concealer since there are spots that it can’t cover up. But then again, I don’t know if any concealer can cover those acne scars up since they’re so dark! With small spots though that aren’t too dark, it completely hides it for me.

I’ve switched from using Tarte’s stick concealer to this liquid form instead since I feel like it has higher coverage. The main ingredient that they advertise is also different. For the stick concealer, Tarte uses Amazonian clay which is supposed to be able to help soak up oils, but still have the ability to retain moisture. For this liquid form, it uses Maracuja which is popular from Tarte’s Pure Maracuja Oil and is known for it’s moisturizing effects.

The Maracuja concealer feels creamy, but not overly thick, which makes it easy to blend on the face. For small spots I just dab it with my ring finger like how I would if I were to apply concealer on my undereyes. This is to make sure the product is able to lightly layer on top of each other and give me the full coverage that I need. Because the stick concealer is made with clay, it doesn’t let me layer quite as well as this concealer.

The concealer has a decent wear-time. Since I have combo-oily skin, the oilier parts of my skin does prevent the product from staying all day. With that said, I still see the product on my face after a long day, just not as thick on the parts that I layer a couple times since it’s especially dark.

I recommend this concealer to everyone. I think everyone should give this a try because if it doesn’t work well for your undereyes, it might work well for other dark spots, etc. And vice versa. The product is especially nice to use during winter because of its moisturizing properties. Even oily skin needs a little help during harsh Canadian winters!
