 Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Glisten



Left, two-swipe swatch; Right, one swipe blended out.

I purchased this at the end of March but have not had a chance to photograph it until today (now I can finally use it, yay!). This is my first Amazonian Clay blush but definitely won't be my last! It's a pinky-coral with gold shimmer that I couldn't quite pick up on camera. When swatching these blushes at Sephora it was the gold in Glisten that sold me on making this my first. The texture of this blush is extremely silky; even blending it out with my fingers for the swatch above was effortless. Both the color and the shimmer distributed smoothly and evenly. On top of that it's extremely pigmented.. I'm going to have to remember to use this with a very light hand until I get the hang of working with it. Here's an extra picture that I just took where it looks more coral. I discovered (afterwards) that the pans pop out and are interchangeable.. so. cute.


Dollface and Amused are the next colors on my hit list.. I can't wait to wear this tomorrow!

  1. That is a gorgeous color! I didn't know you could pop out the pan like that. Do they make refills?

    1. I looked on their site before I posted but didn't see any.. I'm new to these though, so I may be wrong.

  2. I have almost all of them. They are my favorite blushes to use, with the runner up being Illamasqua blush. Both brands have amazing pigmentation and last all day. No joke! Blissful is my favorite all time blush.

    1. After trying this one out on my face this morning for the first time I'm definitely going to (try to) collect them all. They're awesome! I need to add some Illamasqua to my collection.. I've read nothing but great things about that brand!

    2. Subscribe to the tarte website. They send you promo codes. So when I bought all of them I believe I got it for 25%off. Which helps with them being $25 each....just a friendly FYI =)

    1. No, but I've been cutting (WAY) down on my drugstore makeup purchases so I treated myself to this as a reward lol.

    2. Same here, I barely get anything from the drugstore now. I have tasted the sweet fruit of high end makeup and now I want nothing else :D

  8. I've been seeing so many of these around. I'd get it if I still needed more blushes, but I really, really don't!

    1. I was literally just looking at your wedding photos ;) I think there's a 15% off sale going on right now for VIBs (not certain if it's over, I've been trying to ignore beauty sales lol) so if you have a chance to pick one up I'd highly suggest jumping all over it ;)
