Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hr Blush in Blissful Review

Hi everyone! I recently received Tarte's Amazonian Clay Blush in the shade Blissful this Christmas and I wanted to share my thoughts.

These blushes are fairly well known for their long-lasting and pigmented qualities. There are many shades, ranging from a very light pink to some shades suited for darker skin tones. Blissful is on the lighter end and I think it will suit light to medium skin tones.

The colour payoff is very nice. A nice bright, wearable pink. I also really like the cute design of the packaging and the design on the product itself. Each shade of blush is paired with the same shade packaging which I adore. It makes it easy to spot which shade to wear rather than opening it or squinting at a small label for the name of the shade. It seems like durable plastic with a nicely sized mirror and is travel friendly.

I don't smell any fragrances in the product and it's packed with lots of natural and benefitting ingredients like beeswax, vitamins E & C and, of course, Amazonian clay which is supposed to benefit both oily and dry skin. Usually I'm skeptical of claims like this, though it says for oily skin it minimizes oil in the pores and for dry skin it nourishes...

It doesn't seem to highlight my dry skin, as pressed powders are prone to doing, which is nice. The colour is vibrant, comes off easily with water yet seems to last on the cheeks.

I would definitely check this brand out! Their lip stains are also supposed to be nice, which come in the same shades as the blushes do. Have you tried these? What do you think?


  1. ahha tarte is my favourite brand right now, their mascara and lip sticks are the best i've ever used! also their packaging is awesome (especialy the bamboo ones)

  2. Oooh I've never bought tarte products but I heard so many good things! :D The color looks lovely!
