Yesterday I went on the hunt for a cool toned pink blush. I realized I am very much lacking in that department as most of my blushes lean warm. At Sephora I came across the new Tarte amazonian clay long wear blushes and decided to try one out! I picked up "Amused."
I simply love this blush! The packaging is sturdy (and cute!), pigmentation is wonderful and it blends smoothly. Tarte claims 12 hours of wear and although I didn't test this out for 12 hours yet, it did last at least 7 hours on me (I took my makeup off after that time lol). That works for me! I also love that it is formulated without parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, etc... It's without a doubt a very high quality and natural product. I do think that you have to be careful with the application--use a light hand or it can look too obvious on the cheeks.
I bought it at Sephora for $25. I would definitely say the Tarte quality is on par with my beloved Nars blushes ($27 at Sephora) and my 3 Rock and Republic Blushes. I realllly don't need any more blushes, but I don't think I will be able to resist another one! I already have my eyes set on Blissful! Amused is definitely a unique color in my blush collection!
Have you tried out these blushes? Thoughts?
