Tarte "The Sculptor"

Wednesday, 6 August 2014


This little beauty was added to my Sephora basket during my last online haul. I wanted to try something else from Tarte as I love their blushers, but not much really stood out to me. This looked really interesting though, a contour in a crayon form...

I usually just use bronzer to contour or occasionally the products mentioned in this post.  The problem I've found with cream contours in the past is that they were hard to blend and didn't give me soft enough edges. 

The Tarte Sculptor crayon is seriously creamy stuff. It applies effortlessly, really quickly and then it's a dream to blend out either using your fingers or a small brush. The shade is "Park Ave Princess" which is the same as their bronzer. I find it has the perfect mix of warm and cool tones, so it bronzes the skin but still contours and creates nice shadows. 

I'm so happy I ordered it and I'd definitely say it's worth picking up next time you're in Sephora or shopping the website! 

Have you tried this?

  4. This sounds awesome! I am all up for some good cream contour action, the smaller tip seems like it would make everything much more precise!

  13. This sounds amazing, definitely need to pick it up. I've been debating about the Nars multiple in Altai as well as a cream easy to use contour.

  14. I love the idea of cream bronzers/contour but I can't find one that's the right shade. As I am super pale, I find a lot of those on the market are too orange. I need an almost grey colour!

  17. I love the idea of this because precision is something I think is key when it comes to applying a contour, plus the format just makes it so easy! It's such a pretty shade, too.

  18. I saw this when I was in Sephora in New York, and I wasn't sure if I should pick it up because you hadn't reviewed it yet. Looks like I should have now!

  24. This product looks great! Love the idea of a cream contour - seems like it'd look more natural.
    Would have loved to have seen the before and after picture once you'd blended the lines in :)

  35. I dont' know, Lily. It honestly seems like such an overpriced gimmick. You could get the same effect (arguably a more natural one) with the L'Oreal concealer crayon. Even the Josie Maran crayons are cheaper and at least their ingredient list includes include Argan oil.

  36. I love the idea of this. Lazy girls contour in a stick.

  56. This looks great! I wish we could get Tarte products in Australia :( The way it looks when applied looks similar to my Tom Ford Shade-illuminate kid, which is a lovely cream contour, however veryyyy expensive xo

  64. I've had my eye on this for ages, but I've heard from some people that it shows up really orange on their skin. I'm interested to hear that you find it balanced between warm and cool tones. Hmmm... Might just have to make the jump now!

  68. I think you should do a comparison video for us! I've been wanting to try this but it just looks so much like the Loreal concealer sticks if you just purchased one a few shades darker than your skin tone.

  71. I haven't tried it and I'm not into the idea of contouring either, even though I don't REALLY have cheekbones. :p I'm a makeup newbie so I'm not sure what bronzer shade to go for, what brand or how to apply it. Could you please do a blog post on this?

  75. Would have been useful to see a blended out pic.... But product seems great for precise application unlike some contouring sticks e.g. Nars
