My recent realization that my skin and silicones are mortal enemies led me to hunt for a silicone-free concealer to replace my beloved Maybelline Dream Lumi....no small feat, let me tell you.
While I miss certain aspects of the Dream Lumi (such as the light texture and light-reflective quality), I am really, really happy with this Tarte concealer. I purchased the shade Light, and it is a really good match to my fair, neutral skin while also still providing some brightening to my undereye area and the area alongside my nose.
Is it creaseless? No. A few minutes after applying, I will see those telltale creases underneath my eyes, but once I blend them out, the product seems to stay put. And honestly, I haven't found a product yet that doesn't crease in some way under my eyes.
The product is highly pigmented. A very tiny amount goes a very long way. So even though it's quite a bit more costly than the Dream Lumi, it will last a very long time--much longer than the Maybelline product.
The texture is quite thick for a tube concealer, making me wish that this were packaged in a pot instead....it can be a little difficult to squeeze out from the tube, and I sometimes worry about squeezing TOO hard and dispensing too much.
It's not perfect, but it doesn't irritate my skin, provides full coverage, and it's economical. Unless something even better (and silicone-free) comes under my radar, I'll be repurchasing.

This is the ULTIMATE concealer. I am a NC20 Asian girl, and concealer is one of those things I cannot live without. My favorite is Erase Paste by Benefit, but it doesn't last all day and all night. I have a friend who is extremely sensitive to products, has acne scars all over her face and needs FULL coverage for every makeup product because her skin is not in good condition. We have the exact same skin color so I asked her what was her favorite concealer and she said the one by Tarte. Because Tarte is a more natural brand I did not expect it to cover well (Bad..For me I equate natural to being super sheer) but the nice sales lady matched me to "Light" like my friend and there was a HUGE difference!! I mean it just brightens my eye area like crazy, and it is definitely full coverage.
I made my purchase, went home and realized that it stayed on ALL DAY and ALL night....absolutely crazy considering that I get really oily and shiny :( Also it does not crease, or oxidize AT ALL. I actually can't believe it.... The consistency is like benefit, but this one is even better coverage. Also, it is pretty hard to squeeze the tube but you just need a VERY tiny amount to cover your circles. The first time I dispensed a TINY amount but even that was too much. When I mean use a tiny amount maybe use a slightly smaller than pea size for each eye. It does take time to blend, pat pat pat and then flawless looking undereyes. I was worried this was more yellow based for my blue undereye circles, but it manages to look awesome!
I will keep repurchasing as long as they keep making it, I love this concealer and I am a total convert. I'll never have to look in the mirror and see a slightly oxidized under eye, or any signs of fading with this one. Oh and I LOVE how there is no fragrance to it, I hate makeup that smells! I'm actually going to recommend it to my 48 year old mother too!
In Canada it is 26 dollars, but you get a lot of product and you need a VERY tiny amount (smaller than pea size) so it is worth every penny <3 Love it.
My skin type: Oily, and sensitive.

I had high hopes for this one but was very disappointed. I tried the shade Medium, a neutral color with both pink and yellow undertones. When first applied, it looks wonderful; it's smooth and creamy, and covers dark circles well. But sadly that doesn't last even with a setting powder. It creases and settles into fine lines, and makes my mascara smudge by midday. Ended up returning it :(

This concealer is my new go -to for flawless looking color and tone for my under eye and brow bone area. This product is pretty heavily pigmented, a little goes a long way, and does as advertised, being moderately waterproof as well as product not getting stuck in any of my under eye creases.

Almost no creasing, they all do a lil bit. Good coverage. Too much of a dewy effect, if it were toned down a notch I'd love it. While I used the whole bottle, I prefer another concealer paired with eye cream to create a dewy effect that isn't oily. Will likely try the other concealer from this brand

This concealer is sort of interesting--it reminds me of the oil paint artists use, and that's the way I use it, too, by using the back of my left hand as a palette and dabbing it on with a brush. It is very thick, not pasty, but oily, like paint, and should probably be packaged like oil paint or MAC's paints in a tiny tin tube. Instead a very small amount of product is put into a relatively large tube and that means I have to really squeeze and too much always comes out--by too much, I mean anything more than 1/4 the size of a pea. I always get at least 2 or 3 days worth, which is annoying. Then I use my travel-sized Bobbi Brown concealer brush, and kind of buff it out from the inner corner of my eye up and out into the side of the bridge of my nose. It works pretty well for that and does make the darkness disappear, and I sometimes use some of the inevitable excess and lightly dab it at a small localized bit of redness in a firm area of my face, like the tip of my nose. I wouldn't dare to use it anywhere else, certainly not on the skin under the eye. I would have to rub too hard to spread it out, if I ever could, and I can't imagine it would look at all like my skin if I did. It certainly stays on, and doesn't really get that cakey look (too oily) but still is a little drying. It's okay, and doesn't irritate my skin, but there has to be something better and more versatile. UPDATE: As the tube gets emptier, it's even harder to squeeze some product out. The whole bottom seam burst yesterday--that's the end of that, and I'm not going to even bother returning it. Not a bad product. The WORST packaging.

HORRIBLE! This is the WORST concealer I've ever used. Creaseless? Don't think so. It's too thick, very greasy and does not set at all. It remains tacky, settling into every line and blemish until it totally disappears shortly after applying. It also has like a "sheen" to it, almost as if there is some mica or metallic ingredient in it. AND, that big tube has only .28 oz in it?! What a rip-off. Save your money, there are FAR better concealers out there and most tubes that size have .5 oz of product.. See my other reviews for the BEST concealer.. I've tried them all so you don't have to! :)

Ehh... I'm not saying Tarte's Maracuja Creaseless Concealer is horrible, because there are way worse ones on the market. However on the other hand...there's way better concealers on the market, too. So I'm moving on & will not repurchasing.
-Covers horrible dark undereye circles.
-The lightest shade is about NW10 (very pale, cool toned). I'm very pale...but warm toned. The 2nd lightest shade is warm toned, but way too dark. So I'm out of luck.
-Tarte is lying, this creased.
-Greasy. I couldn't set it even with silica powder. It made my eye make up smudge.
-The consistency is too thick. I don't like how much I have to tug my undereye area to blend this in.
-Pricey. I'm willing to pay big bucks for a great concealer, but this was a waste of $$$.
If you're looking for recs, I really like Maybelline's Fit Me concealer. In my experience the only con is it's a tad too dark, so I'm still on the search for an HG concealer.

Although I only gave this product 3 lippies I would repurchase because it's a good color match for my very fair skin and it does conceal my undereye darkness well. However, I have had some issues with it.
My biggest complaint is that on my skin, this concealer is very sticky and takes a long time to dry. I use primer and use the tiniest amount of concealer but I still have to blot it with a blotting sheet and then set with powder and this is after I've given it a few minutess to dry on its own. Secondly, it's really difficult to get this stuff out of the tube.
The price isn't bad and I can see it lasting a long time since you really don't need much at all so overall, I do like it just not as much as some things that are easier to work with.

For reference: My skin tone is neutral (NC25/NW25ish), combination, sensitive, broken capillaries on cheeks. I'm likely a shade darker now due to a tan.
I've been using this product for three weeks now.
I bought the color light-medium. It has a yellowish undertone to it. I applied this concealer to my eyelid and brow bone area due to veining. Also over top of a tinted moisturizer to hide broken capillaries.
The yellowish undertone helped counteract the redness. It blended fairly easily with a small amount. If I apply too product it can tend to cake slightly. It covered by under eye circles okay. However I tend to like a peachier based concealer to counteract the blue/purplish color of dark circles.
Minimal creasing on my eyelids (I always apply a quick dusting of powder over top).
The product doesn't come out easily of the squeeze tube. Squeeze too hard and too much comes out.
Overall a pretty good product. Would purchase again for eyelid veining and concealing redness.
