Tarte’s Shape Tape Line Got A Big New Addition & It’s Exactly What You Needed For Summer


Summer's finally starting to heat up, and as exciting as it is, it also means something more serious for your makeup. As temperatures soar, so does the likelihood of certain beauty concerns — prominent among them, the risk of major makeup melting as you're trying to enjoy some fun in the sun. So what's a beauty buff to do if they don't delight in the idea of going makeup-free? Snag a bottle of Tarte's Shape Tape Stay Spray, which landed just in time to wipe out those summer beauty worries.

When a brand catches onto something good, it's no surprise that it'd expand into additional products under the same concept. There's no better example of this in the beauty industry than Tarte, which took the world by storm with its top-selling shape tape concealer. Since then, it's created an all-out shape tape empire that includes everything you need for a flawless face, from foundations available in inclusive shades to hydrating primers that help skin look smoother. And it's clear that Tarte isn't done yet, because it just added another new game changer to the range.

Tarte's new shape tape™ stay spray launched on June 2 at the brand's website (before landing in Ulta stores on June 16), just as you're transitioning your beauty routine to be summer-ready. The new $25 vegan setting spray joins the rest of the shape tape crew to deliver an additional dose of staying power that'll instantly lock makeup in place for 16 hours or more — no matter what.

That's right, whether you're running around town with pals or lounging poolside, Tarte's newest innovation promises to keep your foundation from cracking, fading, transferring, or settling into fine lines. The weightless spray is delivered onto skin using a patented micro-mister, so you can be sure of an even and controlled application every time (plus a drier feeling that doesn't leave skin looking overly dewy or shiny).

On top of that, the shape tape stay spray is formulated with cucumber, aloe, and vitamin E to refresh and invigorate skin with each spritz. The soothing ingredients will quickly have skin looking smoother and plumper, further preventing any flaking or settling that can happen if summer skin gets too dry. But don't worry, this revitalizing spray (which smells of fresh cucumber and aloe) won't leave behind a sticky or greasy feeling.

Spray the setting mist eight to 10 inches from your face after applying your shape tape concealer and foundation (or whichever formulas you love most) to lock the skin-perfecting products in place all day. Pro tip: You can even spritz your eyeshadow and highlighter brushes with the setting spray before applying to increase color payoff and staying power.
