Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush

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.

  • I have Glisten from QVC’s set and I LOVE it. It is a very shimmery blush, which I normally don’t go for, but I’m loving this one. Now I’m really wanting to try some of the less shimmery shades to see if I like them too. I signed up for auto-delivery for the QVC set so I’ll get 2 more shipments with different blushes. Yay!

    Thanks for the swatches!

    I have Amused (had for over a month) and Glisten (from QVC). I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE ths blush. It truly is buildable and has staying power. I can get at least 6 hours out of it, 8+ with primer underneath.

    Thanks for the swatches, too!

    hi karla, i am an avid reader. love your blog….
    i have two of these, flush, and natural beauty,
    and am really pleased with both, even though they are very pigmented, they don’t grab or blotch and stay on very well.
