The Tarte Shape Tape Hydrating Foundation Dupe


Happy Friday Gorgeous!

So it has been a while since I gave you a jaw dropping dupe, but today is the day.

If you follow my Instagram @jadeallesse (Shamless Plug) you will know after a really shitty experience with Tarte Cosmetics I had a package from them with their latest releases as an apology, which was probably the best display of customer service I have ever had from a company.

The Shape Tape Foundation was one of those gifts and girl.....I CANNOT. This foundation has been game changing for me I am obsessed. But with a $33 price tag & shipping fees from the USA to UK it becomes pretty expensive and you know I am not about spending my money if I don't have to so I began hunting for a dupe.

Tarte Shape Tape Hydrating Foundation £33

I would be lying to you if I said I hadn't been using this non-stop since I was gifted it, I even prefer it over my trusty Revolution Pro Foundation Drops (I KNOW!!) I gives me full coverage with a dewy finish & wears for over 12 hours which is everything I need. It also feels like you have nothing on which to me is 100% a game changer in a foundation for me.

The only thing I extremely dislike about this foundation is the applicator, it comes with the same wand applicator as the shape tape concealer and can take forever to apply it to your face & makes it difficult to mix with my Iconic London Illuminating Drops because you can't pump out the product onto a mixing dish. BUT with the quality of the formula I can let it go.

So onto the juiciest dupe....

Are you ready to save £25.50?!

E.L.F Flawless Finish Foundation £7.50

Not only is this product available in Superdrug for £7.50 But it is also full coverage, Semi- Matte so perfect for most skin types & it wont break the bank! I never have a bad face day when I have this foundation on because of how flawless and airbrushed it looks. The finish is identical to the Tarte shape Tape Foundation & it lasts just as long! It layers beautifully with any creams, powders and never looks cakey. I have got around 15/16 hours of wear time of this foundation before it starts to slip off my t-zone but I tell you what for £7.50 who is complaining?!

It does have SPF in though so isn't suitable for flash photography because you are going to get flashback & look like a ghost in all of your photos. However, It is so naturally radiant and there's something about an affordable foundation that makes me feel like my face is that little more special hahahaha.
