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.

Elly from Massachusetts
I was an avid original shape tape user however I do have dryer skin so the shape tape did tend to be rather heavy. once I found this product I jumped right on it and I'm so happy I did because it is lighter weight however still gives me the coverage I need for blemishes and my under eyes. I find it much more hydrating than the original shape tape. I would definitely recommend this to ladies and men who are looking for a lighter weight full coverage concealer while also still being hydrating and not overpoweringly dry. I definitely would recommend still powdering with it as most concealers it does crease if you don't!
My favorite highlighter!
Amaday from Tampa, FL
I use it on top of my foundation and blend with a Beauty Blender. It's perfect! It makes my matte ELDW foundation look natural. It's beautiful!
Amy from Milton PA
First off, if you are expecting a concealer with some luminosity, this is not that deposit it being called shape tape. I used this with a full face, and just under eyes instead of concealer and it worked well (I have the two lightest shades). I've also used this on no makeup days and it made my user eyes look more radiant and awake. I've used this also under concealer (shape tape and Natasha denona concealer) and it didn't ruin the concealer or how my concealer wears for me. But under concealer it still adds that luminosity just a tiny bit more toned down. I enjoy this.
Its Not Needed, But A Nice Highlight.
ShareBear from California
I was expecting more of a neutral glow, but the yellow hue makes me less wanting to use it, but sparingly when I feel my undereye area needs a boost. I could use a highlighter if I wanted instead.
Amyth from USA
I'm mixing this with my foundation and it looks great! I'm using a Clinique chubby stick that I bought on sale, and the texture and color are less than ideal. However, when I added the glow wand, omg it looks great! I just dabbed it all over my face along with foundation and blended all together. I'm 54 years old with "mature" skin.
My favorite product atm!
Amaday from Tampa, FL
I love this so much. I use it after foundation, spreading with my sponge. My foundation is too matte for me (but otherwise perfect) so I use this on top. It also makes my dark circles under my eyes melt away.
If you're pale don't bother
AlyssaM from Dallas,TX
Im a natural redhead. I bought this in sunbeam the lightest color available and its too dark, its darker than my foundation. I cant believe they don't have more color options for this product.
Love this little wand
Megan from Texas
I LOVE this highlighting wand, it isn't so much concealer but it does provide some coverage. Definitely gives my face and under eye area a natural glow without any glitter. I use my Tarte concealer first and then go over the area with this and also use it to highlight my cheek bones, Cupid's bow and nose
Bought this in place of my usual Shape Tape Concealer < 3
BellamyRules1129 from Mullins, SC
I tried this after a recommendation from an Instragrammer I follow. I could not remember the name of the product however one of the Ulta employees new exactly what I was talking about when I told her what I was looking for. I traded my usual Shape Tape concealer (too drying currently) for this and don't regret it! Amazing product.
is a highlighter/perfecting wand not concealer
lisa from Colorado
maybe tarte needs to market this differently, it's not a concealer it's a highlighting and perfecting wand and yes it's amazing.
product is just okay
georgie from Deptford NJ
I usually love tarte but this product is just okay, didnt seem to do much of anything. Save your money and just get the regular shape tape concealer
Margarita from Chicago
Please don't waste your money on this! The product is so light it feels like I have to layer and layer for it to do something.
this is a good product from Select State
i got this thinking it was concealer, it is not, it is for under you concealer to Brighton under your eye, and works pretty well
Cl from Kankakee
Creased really bad even after setting it. It does highlight but not a lot. Very subtle. It's okay but I wouldn't buy again. I'll just stick with my normal shape tape and highlight.
Not a concealer but it's amazing
Lexiebelles from Oregon
I really love this product. I've bought it for times now because I've used every drop which is very rare for me. I don't use it as an under eye concealer as is in the description. I use it as a daytime highlighter on my nose, forehead, chin and around nose and on cheekbones. I have super dry skin and it doesn't sink in at all. It's very glowy and much more subtle under daylight than powder highlighters.
LadyLuck from Atlanta
I picked this up during the September beauty sale in the lightest shade (I'm fair skinned). I'm glad I didn't pay full price for this product because I don't find it to be all that fantastic. The formula is a bit too thin for my personal preference and does not provide great coverage. I personally like more full coverage concealers with a consistency that has a bit more substance and not as liquidy. I will say, however, I understand this is an illuminating product as well so I'm not too harsh about the lack of coverage. The illumination aspect of this product is ok. Somewhat noticeable but nothing amazing. I also like the fact this concealer is not a matte finish. It doesn't crease or make my makeup look bad and does give a subtle glow. If you are looking for a concealer that is not too matte but still has coverage, I would recommend the NYX born to glow concealer - much less expensive with better results if that's what you're looking for. I appreciate the fact Tarte was trying to make an illuminating concealer, but this missed the mark in my opinion, because it is not a proper concealer or a great illuminator.

I absolutely LOVE IT!!!
changed my mind and now i luv it
:) from .
so at first when i bought this, i thought it was the concealer (probably should have done a little research😂) and i didn't rly like it bc i was expecting better coverage. but after purchasing the actual shape tape i learned how to use it. i use concealer under my eyes and wherever else needs it, THEN use the glow wand to brighten under my eyes and highlight my cheekbones. it definitely does not have concealer coverage so don't expect that, but i love how it doesn't have chunky glitter and looks dewy and natural. it is a great companion to shape tape as the concealer can look a bit dry in certain areas and this helps with that
Hallie from Dallas, TX
The original tape concealer is where it's at. This doesn't do anything but settle into fine lines and fade away quickly. I liked the color because it looked more natural but overall it's a waste of money.
Pros and Cons
JL85 from AZ
So I really do like this product. To me its a "dupe" alternative to the CT Flawless Filter. Very Similar multi use product. HOWEVER. I had this less than a yea purchased in January) and it very clearly has already "gone off". So not a very long shelf life. Didn't get to use the whole thing. Sad.
a must for dark under eyes
Ashley from Macomb, MI
the lightest shade is perfect for fair skin with dark under eyes, it is so difficult to conceal the area and this does an amazing job over a little concealer to make the area flawless.
KRS416 from Knoxville,TN
I recently bought a highly-recommended, very expensive concealer. When I received it, I liked the coverage but was stunned at it's matte finish; my under eye area looked so dry! I purchased this to soften the look and blended it out onto my cheekbones when I applied it over my drying, "Rolls Royce" concealer. It completely blurs the dry look and acts as a pretty highlighter that provides radiance without shimmer or glitter. A great product!
nancy from san bernardino
i didnt like this its so watery dont recommend
Definitely adds to a look
Kt from Philadelphia, pa
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.
