Review: Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush....

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

 Hi Everyone!!

Today I'm going to introducing Tarte's newest product, Amazonian Clay 12-Hr Blush. Here's a brief description of the blushes according to the Sephora Website ( they are a Sephora exclusive)

Infused with natural clay harvested from the banks of the Amazon River and naturally baked by the sun, this nutrient-rich blush benefits all skin types for a fade-free flawless finish for an amazing 12 hours. Inspired by Tarte's best-selling shades of cheek stains and lip tints, the colors range from soft to vivid to suit a wide variety of skintones. 

I received Flush, Amused, Tipsy and Exposed to share with you all...Here we go....

 Flush- A raspberry bright pink matte shade perfect for darker skin tones. I found the color of Flush to be of a medium pigment, so its not super sheer but "just right" in application. I honestly, love this blush. I own the Cheek Stain with the same name. I might need to play with them, see how they layer:).
 Amused- a light punchy pink matte blush that all the rage in lipstick and glosses today in a blush. Absolutely gorgeous, not chalky, sweet pretty pink...had me dreaming of spring!
 Exposed- Very light bronze with a satiny application. I was disappointed in Exposed. I thought it would be more bronzy, but instead it barely showed up on me. Even  as a highlighter, I would skip it.:(
 Tipsy- a peachy high pigmented matte with a hint of satin. Extra goregeious!!! Restored the blush heaux in me!! This a must buy for blushes!

Here's my idea of swatches.:( Does no justice on how they apply or look with them on. I just posted the picture to show you...I tried! lol!

Overall: Grab  Tipsy, Amused, and Exposed right now! Also, the 12-hr claim, on my oily skin, they stay on all least 8 hrs, til I washed it off. They are priced at $25 a piece but that's $1 less than NARS blush.:) lol!

I received a free product (or products) for review purposes. I did not receive any form of compensation from the company. All opinions are my own and not influenced in anyway. My reviews are my personal and honest opinions
