Tmart Concealer Palette Review

Concealer palettes are incredibly multipurpose, you can use them for your concealer, foundation and contouring, and so I've wanted to get my hands on one for a while.

This 54 colour concealer palette* from Tmart here retails at £12.82. First of all, the packaging is quite flimsy as it's made out of cardboard but it does a decent job of keeping the concealers compact. It's slightly bigger than your average eyeshadow palette.

As you can see it has a wide variety of shades. The 30 concealer shades are skintone shades and would work well for everyone.

The 24 concealers have a more unusual mix of shades that could be used for colour correcting.

Now moving onto the actual product. I first tried to used it as a concealer with a more yellowy shade underneath to brighten my under eye area up and a skintone shade on top. It didn't look good! The product is really hard to pick up with brushes, it wasn't as pigmented as I expected and it was very hard to blend! It did end up looking quite cakey and after a few more goes I decided it wasn't great as a concealer for me.

I then tried it as a contour and again it was very hard to blend. Whilst the shades looked promising it went on a bit patchy. This is the moment I thought why don't I heat it up? I then gave a few shades a blast with my hairdryer and they softened up! I was then able to get it to blend quite well with my RT contour brush and the contour did look more subtle than a powder contour.

Here's a few swatches of some shades I used. They look more pigmented in the swatches compared to when you apply them.

I mainly used the last 3 on the left as a contour. However, I recently tried using the more peachy shades as a colour corrector underneath my eyes, and it does actually work to an extent, but the shades are a bit greasy so they feel a bit heavy on the skin.

Overall, I found that the palette was a bit of a let down as the shades could work as colour correctors, but the formula isn't quite right, they feel too slippery.

I'd love to hear if you've tried any similar palettes and your thoughts on them!


  1. I am seriously so intrigued I haven't seen anything like this before, it's such a shame it didn't live to expectations especially as it's a good price, but at the same time man I would not know where to start with this- SO MUCH! xxx

  8. Wow there are so many colours to choose from! Would've been a great palette if the colours were easier to blend. Also, its funny how you have a Tmart in the UK, because we have one called Kmart haha xx

  12. Haha using a hair dryer is so funny/ clever! Did you try using your fingers? Sometimes works better because of the heat :) shame it didn't work out well, maybe smaller more specific palettes would be better :)

  18. Sad to hear that this didn't meet expectations, it's a real shame that they don't blend well when it looks like a great palette. Love your honest review on this though x

  19. It's such a shame that this didn't work as well as you'd hoped, but in my experience you can only really get panstick type concealers to work in any way at all is to get them warm - which can take up some time! It's more expensive, but illamasqua cream eyeshadows can work really well to contour :)

  20. Ohhh.. 30 Concealer shades?? I have got to try this one... I only have seen a max of 6 shades and that only nudes. I however doubt that I'd find this brand here <3
