Shop all the best dupes for this cult favorite concealer

Shape Tape by tarte is the actual definition of a “holy grail” makeup product, and there’s no denying the legacy this concealer has left on the beauty world. Nearly every makeup influencer can be seen highlighting their faces and concealing dark circles with it in YouTube videos, celebrities like Shay Mitchell have admitted to using it daily, and this concealer has probably saved you from more late night Netflix binges and study sessions than you can even count. That’s just the power of tarte Shape Tape, with a full-coverage formula that covers dark circles, blemishes, and imperfections for up to 16 hours - without the dreaded creasing or caking. Sure, it’s a cult favorite with nearly flawless MIRA ratings for brightness, staying power, and blendability… but it’s also $27, and runs out quickly when you’re applying concealer daily for Zoom school or work meetings. That’s why you need the best makeup dupes to banish tired eyes and discoloration with the same prowess of tarte Shape Tape, at half the price. And yes, they definitely exist. From drugstore favorites you’ve been using for years to new brands you need to try, here are the best makeup dupes for tarte Shape Tape that give your under eyes (and cheeks, and forehead) a major boost.

“It’s SUPER high coverage and a little goes a long way. My favorite part is how thick the wand is because it reminds me of the Tarte one that I forget the name of but also can’t afford. If you’re looking for a cheap, high quality, high coverage concealer, this is it!” You know that “Tarte one” this MIRA review is referring to? It’s Shape Tape, and she’s not kidding about the similarities between this influencer-approved tarte product and Camo Concealer. Both provide 16 hours of pigmented, crease-free coverage - which does everything from cover up dark circles to highlight your cheekbones and jawline - and have an oil-balancing formula that makes your eye area look glowy, not greasy. Think Hailey Bieber, who has some insanely bright and beautiful under eyes. The matte finish also won’t sink into eye creases or dry out your delicate skin - in fact, our community says that Camo Concealer is extremely hydrating and non-creasing, and many agree that it’s one of the best drugstore makeup dupes for Shape Tape!

No Filter Matte Full-Coverage Concealer by Colourpop, $7

Filters have definitely saved us on a few occasions - from the OG dog filter on Snapchat that hides most of our face on no-makeup days, to Instagram’s face-blurring feature that instantly radiates and recharges your look. Sadly, there’s no IRL filter that follows us to history class or a night out… but this makeup dupe by Colourpop is the next best thing. Just like tarte Shape Tape, this lightweight and blendable formula creates a natural matte finish to conceal even the worst imperfections. Like chronic dark circles or acne scars. Since we know that the under eye skin is more delicate than anywhere else on the body, No Filter is also infused with marine extracts to hydrate, protect, and prime this area. Sound familiar? Shape Tape also puts healthy skin first, as it’s infused with moisturizing Shea Butter, brightening Licorice Root, and nourishing Mango Butter to round out tarte’s list of  Skinvigorating™ ingredients. Colourpop isn’t just the affordable brand that makes all your favorite eyeshadow palettes, they also have plenty of healthy and hydrating skincare-makeup essentials to achieve complexion perfection - and you’ll be glowing and gorgeous with No Filter Matte Full-Coverage Concealer.

Like the Shape Tape, it doesn’t crease underneath my eyes unlike the Makeup Revolution one.” If there’s one beauty product you need to be truly Infallible, it’s concealer.

Luckily, we’ve found one of the best makeup dupes that delivers all the brightness and beauty of tarte Shape Tape…from one of the most beloved, trusted drugstore brands!

And forget about oxidized coverage or needing to reapply throughout the day, as you’ll always be ready to glow with this top Shape Tape dupe that our MIRA guests say is buildable, long lasting, and non-creasing for all skin types.

While you would think that the ultimate goal of concealer is to cover up dark circles, there are plenty of luxury and drugstore products that don’t provide effective coverage. Sometimes it starts to smudge or fade by lunchtime, or the consistency just isn’t enough to conceal deep and/or hereditary eye bags. But this drugstore concealer by Maybelline is your new must-have for the days you want to look bright and beautiful - at nearly ⅓ the cost of the cult favorite tarte Shape Tape. Just tap the spongy tip across your under eye area, blend in, and watch as your dark circles disappear right before your wide-awake eyes. The Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles is affordable, effective, and a great makeup dupe for those who want all the quality of Shape Tape, without spending a fortune. Influencers like Carli Bybel have even given Instant Age Rewind kudos for its lightweight formula that erases dark circles, fine lines, dark spots and other imperfections in next to no time.
