The Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blushes are a widely popular product for cheeks. I’ve already reviewed Exposed, and am really excited to bring you two more – Dollface and Flush.
What Sephora.com has to say about Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush:
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:
– Synthetic Fragrances
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
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush is an Allure Best of Beauty Award Winner.
Size: 0.2 oz
Dollface(light pink) is a demure pink shade that can be built up for as much of a pigment as you’d like, though I think dark skin tones won’t get much from this one.
Flush(deep berry) is a very bold raspberry shade. In contrast to Dollface, this shade will be excellent for darker skin tones. I’m NW25 in MAC and this shade is way too dark for me. It CAN be used lightly, but it will be very easy to get out of hand.
Overall, these are great blushes. I love how they are pigmented, easy to use as well as blend, and smooth.
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush retails for $25 and you can pick them up at Sephora, Ulta and tartecosmetics.com
