Review: Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Flushed

A couple weeks ago during Black Friday I got this Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Flushed in a set with a brush and an emphasEYES cream eyeshadow for only $22. I haven't been using this for a really long time, but I can already tell that it is going to be a favorite. 

This blush is a berry color and it is very bright. It has a matte finish, comes with 5.6 grams of product, and cost around $25.




This product also has a nice mirror which definitely comes in handy when you bring this with you on-the-go.


Here is a swatch of the blush. On the right I just used a brush and applied it to my skin. It looks a little too bright but you can see in the blended swatch on the left that this is very wearable. It is also easy to blend.
I know this is called a 12 hour blush, but I really didn't think it would last that long, so I put it to the test. I put it on at 6am one morning, and when I checked again at 6pm you could barley see the blush. I guess that is better than most of the blushes that I've tried, but I think it should be called an 8 hour blush instead because it looked much better earlier in the day. It could be because I have oily skin though. Maybe on a person with normal or dry skin it last 12 hours. 

Also The blush has good color payoff, which you can see from the swatch above. It is also smooth and blends easily on the skin. The only negative thing I could really say about this blush is that it isn't exactly twelve hours on me (it is close though!) and the price is a little expensive. I really like this though, so I believe it is worth the price.

I really like that these come in twelve different colors. I am definitely going to try more colors out because I am happy with this one. If you are looking for a high-end blush to try I would recommend this one, because you don't really need to worry about it disappearing on you in a few hours.

Have you tried any Tarte blushes before? What brand do you like the most for blushes?

    1. I know! I would be afraid of wearing this if it didn't blend easily!

  2. Very pretty pink! I have one Tarte blush in Exposed and I agree that the lasting power isn't that phenomenal. I think NARS fares much better in that department :)
