Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Glisten
Tarte's Amazonian 12 hour Clay blushes have caught my eye for a few years now but it wasn't until I was in the states this year that I remembered to pick one up. They are pricey at $24 each but I think that is the average for high end blushes. Tarte is a brand that is all about using natural ingredients and this is something I always love about products, as well as being cruelty free! This shade was released as part of their spring collection and they hadn't yet released any shimmer blushes within this range until now. Being a lover of shimmer blushes rather than matte, I went for this one. The only thing I didn't like whilst looking at this in Sephora was that they didn't have a tester for it so I didn't get to swatch it before buying. The packaging it comes in reflects the shade inside, and this had a shimmery case so I knew it was a shimmer blush. I usually stick to the same shade when trying out blushes and this is a pretty common shade, but I would love to try some of their other shades. Maybe something a bit more purple based.
Does this blush last 12 hours? Well from what I've noticed, yes it does. I can go out knowing that this is going to stay on for a long time, I don't really need a 12 hour blush, anything from 6 to 8 usually does me for every day but this is something I'd probably wear of a night when in a bar or club as that's when my makeup starts to wear off. So far I love this blush and it is very smooth and easy to blend onto the cheeks.
Have you tried any Tarte products?
