Ok, I’m super late on the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush wagon, but I’m onboard and thinking, “What took me so long to get obsessed with these blushes?” With the holiday season approaching, there’s 20% off coupons at Ulta and Sephora so I snagged the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in “Flush” and “Fearless” before it was too late! There’s a ton of colors and tones available, so I’m sure you’ll find one that’s suitable for you and your skintone. For me, however, I stuck with my pink and peachy-pink faves.
These blushes are “long-wearing, solar-baked…that lasts up to 12 hours.” I love how the packaging correlates with the colors inside; and, it’s compact with a sturdy mirror inside so that’s a bonus too. Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Blushes are “infused with natural clay harvested from the banks of the Amazon River.” As products that contain clay that is “naturally baked by the sun, this nutrient-rich blush benefits all skin types for a fade-free flawless finish that lasts an amazing 12 hours.” The available “colors range from soft to vivid to suit a wide variety of skintones. For oily skin types, Amazonian clay minimizes oil in and around pores to balance skin and keep product in place. Those with dry skin will benefit from the clay’s nourishing and hydrating properties, which naturally restore skin’s moisture. Combination skin types can rely on its ability to zero in on skin concerns and deliver benefits to restore complexion harmony.”
I know, it’s a lot of fancy claims. And, while I can’t say for sure if the clay within these blushes are “from the banks of the Amazon River” and contain clay that is “naturally baked by the sun,” they do have long-lasting power on the skin. They’re pigmented and can be built if you’re going for a stronger look. They don’t apply streaky or dry on the skin, so it looks natural and the blush is really easy to apply. Lasting power is superb; pretty all-day with no touch ups, fading, or getting blotchy like some power blushes.
I got the shades “Flush” and “Fearless” and they’re absolutely divine. “Flush” is a “pinkish berry” shade, while “Fearless” is the most perfect “coral pink” — according to Sephora’s website. Again, the color pay-off is outstanding, and they translate fantastically on the skin. Both “Flush” and “Fearless” are a semi-matte/matte finish without looking cakey or dry. They still impart a subtle glow without glitters and shimmers, which I prefer most days. If you haven’t started collecting the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes, I suggest you start! With the holiday season just around the corner, they’re perfect for giving and receiving; and, with holiday sets available, you can get a great deal on multiple shades.
