The Tarte Amazonial Clay blushes are my all-time favourite! The shade "exposed" is my current favourite, as its a stunning matte nude-pink. These blushes go on smoothly and blend really well, and they're really buildable which is nice because you aren't too at-risk of clown face after one swipe of your brush! I find that they do a really good job of lasting all day (the 12 hour claim is no joke), even during summer in humid Auckland, when the rest of my makeup is sliding off my face after work.

Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay Blush Review
Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay Blush A long-wearing, supremely soft blush infused with Amazonian clay harvested from the banks of the Amazon River and naturally baked by the sun.
This 12-hour blush universally benefits all skin types for a fade-free, flawless finish in shades ranging from soft to vivid and matte to shimmer to suit a wide variety of skin tones.
Amazonian clay minimizes oil in and around pores to balance skin and keep product in place while also hydrating the skin naturally to restore moisture, reducing the appearance of dry, flaky skin.
Pack Size 0.20 oz.
Availability Selected online retailers
I own 5 of these blushes. They are that good. All hauled from the USA - I can't help it every time i'm in sephora to pick a few more up.
The colour pay off is stunning and they blend really well. There is a wide range of shades to suit everyone.
I've also used a few of mine as eyeshadow when i've been in a pinch! The only thing i'll say is that the smaller holiday collections don't seem to be as pigmented. Is that just me?
Tips: round fluffy blush brush to buff it on to your face.
My hubby picked this up for me in a gift set in Las Vegas and I couldn’t wait to try out my first ever Tarte product. It is exactly the same as this blush just a smaller version. The set that came with a mini mascara is now available through Sephora NZ for $17 great value for two items. It is a stunning coral colour but warmer than any other peach shades I have come across. I literally just swept my brush over and it really did pick up quite a bit of product so I see this lasting for a while. I have quite pale skin and this looked so natural and didn’t accentuate the redness around my cheeks which I have found some peachy tones can do. It lasts all day and because it is a more sheer blush can be built up for a more dramatic look or a darker skin tone. I’ve found a light hand good for my pale skin. I will definitely be purchasing this again although for the larger size I think it’s around $45 so may order another gift set before they sell out. I definitely recommend this blush and am keen to try other shades.
I actually got this in a wee Tarte kit I picked up at Sephora in Sydney with a mini mascara (terrible) and lipstick (nice, wasn't my colour at the time, gave it to Mum, now wish I'd kept it ;) )
I have a 1.5g size of the shade 'unstoppable' - kind of a pinky terracotta shade. I wear it when I do more neutral makeup, and have barely scratched the surface so far.
Colour payoff is quite subtle initially, but can build. Wearability is good, and it's a lovely, blendable fine mill. It seems to be vaguely scented, but I'm not sure what with - pleasant though.
Removal is simple with your usual method - it doesn't leave a stain.
Would I have bought it? Probably not, but i'm suing it more and more
Tips: If you're near a Sephora the kit I got was only about $20; well worth it.
I have two minis of this one in Ornate which is a gorgeous, summery pinky coral. I love this shade on me. And one in Thrilled which is a nude, beige with a mauve undertone which looks very similar to the shade pictured. I really like my Tarte blushes, I reach for them a fair bit. I wouldn't say the formula is really soft but I have no problem getting plenty of pigment on my brush and it blended out well and didn't look powdery. I've used this when I had dry skin and when I've had oily skin and it lasted the same amount of time. That being said I don't really have problems with my blush fading. I can still find my blush on my cheeks at the end of the day or my natural flush comes through and I don't need more blush. It's not one of those blushes with blurring properties in it but it doesn't emphasize my pores. It claims Micronized Amazonian clay helps control oil & infuse moisture for balanced skin & seamless blending. I haven't noticed it balance out my skin on my cheeks or any improvement for my skin as a result but this is a cosmetic not skincare so I'm not expecting to do that, I also don't reach for this everyday. I do like that the formula is free of mineral oil and hasn't made me break out. The shades I have are matte but I think they have some that have more sheen. I would recommend trying these if you want a nice, matte longwearing blush that won't look powdery or break you out.
Tips: If you want to try out the blushes I would recommend looking at the giftsets from Tarte as a lot of them will have a small deluxe sized blush. The samples are 1.5 grams but they will last you awhile since you don't need very much. Because of the clay this formula is prone to hard pan especially if you wear a dewy, foundation or BB cream. This is easy to remedy by just going over the pan with some sticky tape to take off the top layer.
The colors are super pigmented so a little really goes a long way! I have seen people over do this so be sure to use a fluffier blush brush! The color range is incredible and really has colors for every skintone, as a MUA I really appreciate that. It lasts longer than 12 hours for me if you are using a primer+ foundation+ setting powder/spray. It is truely a must have for events or anything you really want it to keep on for. I love that it works on oily skin and dry skin! It’s really hard to find products like that. Love love love.
My sister received a Tarte blush as part of a Sephora birthday gift whilst in the USA and it is truly one of the most gorgeous blushes I have ever used. They shade I have tried is in Partyyyyy and the pigmentation is gorgeous! It gives the perfect wash of colour on my pale skin tone and is so long wearing. It is the perfect mauve, pink colour that really compliments all skin tones.
I will definitely be purchasing one of my own as you can buy it full sized so that I don't have to share with my sister!
Tips: I find this works best with a duo fibre or large fluffy blush as a little does go a long way and it is easier to control this.
I bought myself one of these blushes in the shade charisma after heading beauty gurus rave about them.
I was pleasantly surprised to find all the reviews completely true. The packaging is cute the blush i nice and secure. The shade I bought was is a mid tone peach with a little gold shimmer throughout. Super pigmented but in saying that it was still easy to apply with a fluffy brush. Just add a little bit at first and then build up. The shimmer was hardly noticeable on my skin which was good as I was worried that it would be too chunky.
This was a perfect shade for my super fair skin and I always get complimented when I wear it.
Tips: Use a little on a big fluffy brush at first and add more if needed. A little goes a long way.
These are so pigmented, so long lasting and so good! I have way too many shades including heaps of the limited edition holiday blushes. I especially love the matte colours. They look so "soft" on the cheeks despite being so pigmented. They also seem to mattify my cheeks which works well for my combination skin. I just adore these.
Tips: The shade "exposed" is a fantastic starter shade. Would work for a variety of skintones and works well with many different looks.
Well, who hasn't heard of these amazing blushes? Well.. me! When i first got into beauty about a year ago, these blushes weren't even on my radar, i had never heard about them. But the more i started reading blogs, and watching vlogs.. it seemed like this blush was all the rage! So... as a beauty addict, i had to try this blush, just to see if it as good as everyone says.
Firstly, i love the packaging of these blushes. They are really simple. I have the colour blushing Bride, and it comes in a plastic pink compact, which has 'Tarte' in embossed gold print on the lid. This flip open to reveal a mirror, and the pan of the product. The reason why i love this packaging is because the compact has a small hole at the bottom, where you can use a pin to pop the pan out of the packaging, and then stick it in something like a z-pallete, so easy to take this blush with you everywhere.
This blush pan is so pretty. Its a beautiful mauve pinky-purple, and is imprinted with a beautiful design which really is iconic to Tarte, and a similar design to what a lot of their packaging is decorated with. It sort of looks like an imprint of leaves or something.
This blush is pretty (like i have said a million times already). It silky smooth, but slightly chalky. I know that sounds bad, but the blush is also pigmented like you wouldn't believe. In saying that, it is quite a hard blush and i really have to swirl my brush around into this pan to pick up product (I use a natural brush, Mac 129), which could be part of the issue.
However, once the blush is on your face, It blends like a dream, and it seriously lasts all day! I do like this blush, but I just don't love it, and I am not 100% that its worth the price tag.
