Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blushes have become extremely popular, as I’m sure you know! With any product that is hyped to heaven there is usually some truth in all the exaggeration. These blushes are definitely a great product, and worth looking into! A lot of us makeup addicts went a little crazy and wanted to buy them ALL!
I prefer matte blushes because I think they are much more versatile, and a good majority of Tarte blushes have shimmer. The four I have are the most useful for my collection, and I will only be reviewing the ones I own.
Tarte claims that amazonian clay has numerous benefits for the skin such as balancing skin moisture and oil control — making it suitable for all skin types. I’m not sure if all that is completely true, but I do know that they do not get patchy or greasy like some blushes, and the staying power is outstanding!
HERE is a link to my review of Exposed — which I purchased after writing this post.
I must admit I had to edit this page to reflect my change in opinion. I absolutely love this baby pink blush, especially when I have a strong contour. Dollface is in the same color family as MAC Well Dressed but definitely not a dupe. Click HERE for swatch comparisons of the two.
Tarte’s online description is a bit off… I would definitely consider this a warm pink rather than a peach. Blissful has a drier texture, so you have to dig a little more with your brush in the pan. Texture aside, it looks gorgeous on the skin and is probably my favorite!
Flush is a berry-purple. This is the most pigmented blush I have ever used in my life! I love the way this looks on my fair skin — it’s a perfect “just in from the cold” flush. I think it would look amazing on any skin tone, especially dark skin! Because it is so pigmented, I like to use a fan brush to apply.
This is a gorgeous warm nude with glitter. I personally hate the glitter but not to worry — when you tap your brush before applying, 95% of the glitter falls off and never makes it to your face. There is no shimmer so it ends up applying nearly matte. Fair skin tones can even use this as a bronzer.
