Hourglass vs. Tarte Concealer Stick

I am looking for a new concealer and deciding between Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer and Tarte Smooth Operator Waterproof Concealer. 


I currently use MUFE's HD concealer but find that its too cakey and doesnt cover all of my purplish hyperpigmented scars. I think a creamier more emolliant concealer may be better like one of these concealer sticks. 


Which of the two offers the best full coverage? 

Which lasts the longest? (I have very oily skin)

Which seems to be best for your skin? (no breakouts, irritations)

What shade would be best? (#30 in MUFE Mat Velvet is a perfect match; #4 concealer is a taaad bit light but the best fit)

Any other concealers you would recommend?


Thank you beauties in advance <3


Re: Hourglass vs. Tarte Concealer Stick

Hi Elnxi0-


Both are great concealers that will give you really good coverage. Also, both of them have a very similar texture. If you usually find that concealers slip or do not last as long, I suggest the Tarte Smooth Operator™ Amazonian Clay Waterproof Concealer. I also recommend stopping by your local Sephora Store and swatching both to see which one you like the best.


For shades the Hourglass Natural and Light would be the best fit for you.
