Review: Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush

Finally. A blush that really impresses me. Until now, I've liked (and loved) a few, but never have I ever found something quite like this. 12 hour wear? Yep. Stays true to color? Check. Controls oil, but nourishes dry skin? Yes. Really. Sounds too good to be true, but this stuff is absolutely amazing!
$25 and available at Sephora.com and wherever Tarte products are sold.

Read what Sephora.com has to say about this product below:

What it is:
A long-wearing, solar-baked blush that lasts up to 12 hours.

What it does:
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. 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. The result? Blush that wears better, longer, and truer!

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Petrochemicals
- Phthalates
- GMOs
- Triclosan

What else you need to know:
This blush features the following Skinvigorating™ ingredients:
- Vitamins A and E, two natural preservatives that act as anti-inflammatory emollients and protect against free radical damage
- Vitamin C, an antioxidant that fights free radical damage and prevents oxidative stress and premature signs of aging, while brightening the skin
- Amazonian clay, a nutrient-rich, multitasking, skin-balancing clay that reduces dryness and flakiness, improves skin clarity, elasticity, firmness, and texture while removing oil from the skin's surface for smooth application and wear

  3. Great review! Thanks for the extra info about the blush palette! Very helpful!


  4. great review!! really helpful, I´ll check it out!


  5. Yeah, no good for people in Europe:D

    I have a request. Can you do a short video about your 5 must haves, products what you recommend to your fans. Maybe only products that are available worldwide. I want to check out many products, but most companies don't ship internationally.

  6. Just today I realized how much my blush fades by the end of the day and was determined to find something long-lasting. I logged onto youtube and saw your video, "the perfect blush." Perfect timing, haha. Thanks for the review!

  7. Great review!
    I'm such a fan of you!!!



  8. great review! I'm tempted to try this!

  9. Can you Please please please do a video of your favorite stuff from certain brands like top 10 Mac favorites or stila favorites, Nars, urban decay, smashbox, etc. That would be awesome!!! I love your videos, keep up the great work!

  10. I was just looking at these the other day. I am drawn to the tawny-pink colors, and 'Blushing Bride'....I'm glad to hear they work well and last! They look so chalky in the promo photos that are out there. Thanks for such a wonderful review! I am adding this blush to my wish-list!

  11. I will definitely try this blush! As a hygienist who wears a mask all day, I could really use a blush that lasts 12 hours. I just recently bought Tarte foundation for the first time and LOVE it. I have tried a lot of foundations over my 45 years, and this is by far my favorite. Thanks for the review, Tiffany!

  12. I know that you have mentioned in the past that you depot your eyeshadows and blushes. Is there a "trick" to doing this??? I am very apprehensive to take on this task for fear of ruining my makeup!!! :( Any advice you can give would be great!!!

  13. Tiffany i love your make up in this video! you look gorgeous! would you mind doing a video on how you did your eyeshadow and face!! that would be awesome! thank you!

  14. I love your reviews! You inspired me to start up my own beauty blog! Check it out sometime if like :) (Although Ive just started hehe)

  18. Thanks so much for the review! I'm def going to check it out(: I'm so happy I found this blog! I actually started my own one today and after posting a few posts, I started searching for other beauty blogs and came across yours. I absolutely love it!

    I love your YouTube videos as well, but somehow I had never visited your blog.

    Keep up the good work!

    (P.S. does anyone know how I can follow this blog? Silly, I know, but I'm still getting used to blogspot. Thanks!)

  19. I ordered the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed, the Smooth Operator Micronized Clay Finishing Powder and the At Ease Micronized Clay Calming Concealer. It says that it minimizes pores and calms redness and that would be great. Can't wait to try them out. Thank you for making us aware of this line <3

  20. I'm thinking of getting the concealer eraser from Tarte.


  21. Sad that I can`t buy it where I live! :(
    But they both look beautiful!
    PS:We are doing a contest!Have a look if you like!(Chance to try beauty products from another country!) :)

  23. What could be the dupe of Tarte Exposed? I live in Bangkok. It is too hard to get Tarte blush from here. :( Very sad, so if you could please kindly share us what could be the dupe for it, that would be so much kind of you. Thank you.

  24. I’m a huge fan of this blush! :D
