Most Helpful Positive Review Dry skin gals rejoice!
Just bought this product as I love the concealers but with my super dry skin my under eyes end up looking like the Sahara. This product is unique as it 'highlights' or brightens the skin without ANY shimmer/glitter/sparkle etc. looks great on days when you're just throwing on some gimme brow/ bb cream/ lip gloss; it adds dimension to your face without looking like you're wearing 'highlighter'
This product works best on guys and gals that have Uber dry skin. Like every moisturizer, primer , foundation, etc. doesn't make a difference you still have dry flaky areas of skin, then this product is for you!
Also FYI the sponge isn't meant to be used while still in the tube. You're supposed to remove it and use it just like you would any other beauty blender...
Most Helpful Critical Review Nothing fantastic about this product
The product is okay... it isn't something that is worth the splurge or that you have to get. The coverage is sheer because it's like a base for the tarte shape tape concealer. When applied by itself, it serves no justice in covering your under eyes, so it makes the point useless unless you buy the shape tape concealer. I haven't experimented with other concealers if they are compatible with the glow wand, so to be safe you would have to use what they offer. On days where you want to look dewy and glowy then it is a nice product and it doesn't crease which is wonderful. But I don't see the hype around this product and it would be a waste of money to spend on.

You would think it's unnecessary but it really looks good over concealer/foundation like under eyes, cheeks and tip of nose to brighten your face without looking too shiny
Drying but full coverage
Trish from Elk Grove
I really like the coverage, I wanted to love the product! but it was instantly cakey, did nit blend very well, and a bit too drying.
Gretchen from CA
I didn't get the point of this at first and was honestly unimpressed but Ulta was having a Tarte event featuring this point so I gave it a try. I love this. It's basically a liquid illuminator but it's definitely a multifunctional product. I like to mix it with my concealer to help make my under-eyes look more hydrated, using it as a liquid highlight, mixing it with my primer, sunscreen, moisturizer, or foundation. It gives your skin THE MOST HEALTHIEST GLOW. Nothing shimmer or sparkly. If you have dry/normal skin or just like glow-from-within type of look, you need this! My only downsides are I didn't like how this is advertised this as a concealer(since it's not) and I wish it was a bigger size like an actually face product.
In love with this and feeling pretty!

I use this after my Shape Tape concealer. I heard about these products on a video from Leanne Morgan, the comedian!!!
Stroke of Light Dupe
Paige from Florida
Bare Minerals discontinued their Stroke of Light under eye concealer so I asked the associate at Ulta for something similar and she recommended this. It's pretty similar, just not as much coverage which is fine for me. I wanted something light with a glow. This is definitely not something to use if you want full or even medium coverage.
Gorgeous glow, lit from within
Lis from Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania
I use this as a highlighter and do give a glow in certain areas. It really gives a beautiful look, very natural glow but noticeable. The only thing that would make it better would be if there was more of a color selection and if there was some coverage to it. It definitely does not conceal, but if it was more opaque it would be a gorgeous concealer for under the eyes. I put it on top of concealer sparingly under eyes and it looks pretty. Highlights cheekbone and other areas of face very nicely. The perfect color for me is a blend of atlight and dream.
Tarte glow wand
Al7768 from CA
I thought this product would provide some coverage for the under eye area besides the glow. It does nothing but making my under eye circles shiny and creasy looking. A useless product...so sad
Much better than a powder glow!
AussieDreamer from Everett, WA
I use this product on my upper cheekbones and the center of my forehead. I love that it is very lightweight yet gives my skin a natural glow. I like it much better than powder glow I have tried in the past. I am trying to keep powder use to a minimum due to my aging skin.
It works but... for what?
Taylor from Iowa
Im not 100% sure what to do with this product. It doesn't work enough to be a highlighter but it does not look good on your under eye. So I'm not sure I would buy again
I love this product!
Cdenos from Salem, OR
This product is very moisturizing as well as concealing. A little bit goes a long way. The tube lasts a long time because of that. I love this product! It matches pretty decent.
It does what it says
NA from ElPaso Tx.
I tend to have dry skin, so I just use it to cover dark spots and even a couple of small dark moles in my face; I personally, do not use it as under eyes concealer due to my dry skin. I use it after moisturizer and before foundation. It stays for hours and I guess this depends how you seal your makeup.
I like this product but I prefer the tart concealer.
Gina from Atlanta Georgia
I don't like how shiny it looks under my eyes I have to tone it down with some setting powder.
Maybe I misunderstood what this was
CMacK from Las Vegas
I thought this was a concealer ?? I must have misunderstood its more of a highlighter . It made every flaw , bit of texture and pore stand out . It looked a bit orange on me too. Ive learned no product gives the same results on everyone so I feel bad saying its not worth buying but it wasn't for me . I like a glowy finish rather than matte but this was not the one .
I love this stuff!
dz from st louis
I dab this over it cosmetics bye bye undereye and it gives me GLOW! Not shine or shimmer or glitter or sparkle, just a perceptible brightness. Exactly what I was hoping for-I also dab on my cheekbones and nose as highlighter sometimes for a subtle glow that my textured skin can handle.
Didn't think I would be a fan, but now I am!
LetyM from Fort Worth, TX
Needed something to brighten my face as well as cover some dark spots... never thought I would be a fan, but I was wrong!
It's a keeper!!!
Beccab312 from Sweet home, Alabama
This is best used on top of a concealer to lighten up and lift around the eyes. It give a glow which is mor EOS a from within look than a highlight would given very nice.
Great "no-makeup" look
Charlene from Stroudsburg
I love Shape Tape so I thought I'd try this. I use this for a natural fresh face look- like I had a nice workout. Sometimes I dab a bit of Shape Tape on top for a completely flawless finish. I tried the sponge tip but I prefer using a concealer brush because it works better for me.
Sandee from Philadelphia
I don't usually like concealers they tend to look like I have it on. But I saw this said glow so I decided to try it.it brightens my eye area and doesn't look cakey at all.
Really liking it
KaryH from Houston, TX
I love how it brightens my undereyes without looking cakey. I don't normally wear makeup & this is perfect alone or with a color corrector. Also don't expect full coverage that's not what it claims. Other than that it works great for me & easy to apply.
Great glow! Was looking for a YSL touché eclat dupe...
Emma from San Diego
I was hoping this would be a good dupe for the YSL touché eclat and while its not exactly same, it's pretty close. I actually prefer the tarte glow as it adds a bit more glow and NOT shimmer (the YSL is a little more subtle). Either way I would absolutely purchase again!
I don't like this Product
Lila from Tx
I don't recommend to buy this product That's too oily
Still confused about the point of this product
Ceejay from Houston, TX
So I was really excited to try this product thinking it would be as amazing as ShapeTape concealer and I am extremely disappointed. I don't even see the point in it at all. The product gives no coverage nor does it provide a glow. It was a waste of money.
Diane from New York
I really love this Tarte glow wand. I apply it over my concealer and it just brightens my whole face. It looks so natural. Like you're glowing from within.
Mix with Shape Tape for Perfect Effect
Sahar from Chicago
I saw someone else mention this in the comments when I went to buy. I wasn't sure how to use it exactly, but now I mix a small amount with my shape tape and it truly makes the concealer a dream. Before it was too thick and d try for my skin but I loved the coverage, by adding the glow wand it sheets it out just a touch but let's it be more fluid and blendable. I also use a little by itself on my cheek bones and upper brow. It's awesome!
Glad I bought this at 50% off
Gap-toothed redheaded singer from Delaware
This is a little too much for undereye use as I have seen it demonstrated. And there really isn't anything special about this as a liquid highlighter. Not worth the price. I have others that I much prefer.
