Identical Tarte Dupes To Own Now!

You can’t scroll on Instagram without seeing some new influencer posting about Tarte. They always claim it is THE BEST Tarte sale that is ONCE IN A LIFETIME.

I’m not sure how dumb they think their followers are, but having a sale every two weeks no longer means you can claim it is a super awesome, once a year type of thing that never happens.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Tarte, and I suggest Tarte products in my LTK profile, but I also don’t claim that they never go on sale, nor do I ever claim one of Tartes sales is a once a year type of thing. Fact is Tarte is like Khol’s, and they always put their stuff on sale…it’s kind of their stick.

While I love Tarte, they are a bit pricey, so knowing the best Tarte dupes can go a long way. Especially now during Covid, it can be a good idea to save money wherever you can, and beauty products can be a great place to Tarte…I mean, start.

With so many cosmetics companies out there and so much competition, other (cheaper) options are now on the market that stands up next to Tarte’s cult following.

Below I will go over the best Tarte Dupes that I myself would use as a professional cosmetologist, and I will of course include a Tarte Shape Tape Alternative.

Full disclosure: some of my suggested Tarte dupes maybe be close in price point, but they will never be over. I am only suggesting Tarte alternatives within a few dollars as an option to those who don’t mind the Tarte price but are merely looking for a Tarte alternative due to not liking the product in general.

This can be due to how it reacts with their specific skin type, or it can be something within the design of the foundation tube itself, such as the pump. Perhaps they don’t like the foundation color options, the size, or the way the actual foundation feels on their skin; in this case, they will find this article quite helpful.

Tarte Foundation Dupe

Since foundation is one of the most popular makeup items used, I will start with the best Tarte foundation dupes.

Fun fact: Tarte’s foundation actually came out after its infamous Shape Tape concealer. Its formula is made from Instagram feedback and is meant to minimize wrinkles’ appearance, all while being hypoallergenic. It is made in 50 different shades and five different undertones.

Tarte Shape Tape Dupe

You don’t even need to be that big into makeup to know what Shape Tape is.

Wait, don’t open another browser. I don’t judge that you have heard the word Shape Tape before but don’t, in fact, know what it is.

No worries, you don’t need to go to google and type in what is Shape Tape. I’ll help you out….Shape Tape is one of the best concealers on the market, with the biggest cult following.

I don’t say cult following lightly, one is sold every 12 seconds! I myself will use it even on natural makeup days because it is one of the ONLY products that are able to cover up my awerful dark circles under my eyes.

This is the best concealer to brighten, smooth & give the skin a firmer, more lifted look.

It is available in 30 colors and nourishes delicate undereye area with mango seed & shea butter while licorice root brightens.

Since you are here I am guessing you don’t really care about Shape Tape itself, and so now we will dive into the best Shape Tape dupes.

Even though most of these come with a wand, I suggest investing in a concealer brush to properly apply the product. The wand is meant to dab the product onto your skin, but a brush is intended to blend it in.

Sometimes a product doesn’t work for you simply because of how you apply it and the improper use of tools. FYI a finger is not a tool. I will use my finger when I’m in a hurry, but I notice a difference when I use a concealer brush.

Tarte Maneater Mascara Dupe

The maneater mascara is one of my favorite mascaras behind Too Face Better Than Sex. However, the brush may be a bit harsh if you have sensitive eyes and feel a little rough if not used carefully.

Its brush is legit AF and doesn’t clump, but it is a bit on the pricy side. If I have to save money on something, I can see how mascara would rank on the list. You can get some pretty good Tarte dupe mascara for a fraction of the price.

At the end of the day, the brush is what makes these dupes so dupey. A few of these options will have a brush that is more user friendly and has a more glide friendly formula.
