The Game Changing Blush

Did you ever think you'd see an entire post about a blush? I certainly didn't, but after a sudden increase in the number of coloured cheek products I owned and this post, here we are.
The Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Blissful is described as a shimmering peach, however, since Tarte has repackaged their products - this one seems to have been reformulated - or they just forgot the shimmer. Either way, I'm not complaining.
On me, its a beautiful peachy pink matte that isn't overly pigmented. Its a bit on the sheer side, which is always a plus when it comes to blush - less chance of clown cheeks.
When I first apply it (I'm an NC 42 in MAC as reference) it gives me just a hint of colour that I can place even at the hollows my cheek and work upwards; a sculpting blush of sorts, but with added colour, it gives me the most natural looking flush that I cannot describe. I don't blush at all, naturally. However, if I did, I sure as hell hope I looked like this.
The formula is a pleasure to work with, its long wearing and silky.
The only drawback for me, personally is the product becoming a bit hard over time - I've had it for about a month now and I've had to scratch the surface once already - if this is an indicator, I'm slightly worried. However, since everything else about this is so perfect, I can look past it. It has after all made its way into my daily rotation of 'I woke up like 'dis' products.

What do you think of these blushes? 


  1. Love this blush! its so good for tan/olive skin tones! perfection!

    1. It really is! Does yours have shimmer by any chance?

  2. I have Tipsy, and I love the coral-ness of it! But yes, I have the same hardening issue as you do - I think it's unfortunately something about the formula :(

    1. I couldn't believe it when you told me. But it happened to mine :o
      Still love it though :o
