Tarte has recently released a number of products containing “Amazonian Clay” (potted eyeliner, shimmering pressed powder, translucent loose powder, concealer, illuminating serum, eyeshadow, and blush). The clay is supposed to be nutrient-rich and “skin balancing:” mattifying, hydrating, and clarifying.
Sephora has eight colors of the Amazonian Clay blush for individual sale. They’re $25 each, and the clay’s balancing properties are supposed to result in longer-wearing color. I can neither confirm nor deny — I have only tried these on my arm so far.
Blushing Bride is wine with gold sparkles (the only sparkly blush of the eight). Natural Beauty is a deep red-pink… somewhere between apple and watermelon (it’s also more pink than Bite of an Apple. It has more blue/violet in it). Flush is fuchsia (violet-pink). Tipsy is peach.
Sephora also sells an Amazonian Clay Discovery Set, which includes an exclusive shade of Amazonian Clay blush: shimmering light pink Adored. Your $39 also gets you Smooth Operator translucent matte finishing powder, emphasEYES waterproof eyeliner in black, Amazonian Clay shadow stick in Bronze, and Lights, Camera, Lashes! mascara. Every product except the mascara contains Amazonian Clay.
And QVC has an exclusive blush shade. It’s part of their 8th Wonder of the World Best of the Amazon Set. That set is $52.74 plus $6.22 shipping and handling (total: $58.96). It includes an Amazonian Clay blush in peachy-pink Glisten; Amazonian Clay Balancing Foundation with SPF 15 in Fair, Light, Medium, Tan, or Deep; an Amazonian Clay automatic waterproof eyeliner pencil in Golden Plum; Pure Optic moisturizing lipgloss in Golden Pink; Lights, Camera, Lashes! volumizing mascara in Black; an Amazonian Clay eyeshadow palette (dark brown, shimmering bronze, light sand, and shimmering plum); a brush; and a makeup bag.
