Tarte Blushing Bride Amazonian Clay Blush

If you're still wondering what you could get at Tarte Friends & Family sale (ends on August 6th), here's an idea for you . I got my first Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush in Blushing Bride, a beautiful rosy plum with a golden shimmer




This range of blush contains clay from the Amazon river, as you probably guessed, plus vitamins, but they're free from a lot of suspicious chemicals (parabens, phtalates, etc...). That's always a good point for me. 





This blush has an incredibly soft and finely milled texture, and I don't find it powdery at all. It's very pigmented, yet its softness makes it easy to blend, so no sharp edges. 






Once applied, the shimmer doesn't quite translate as much, but it gives the cheeks  a nice golden sheen. This shade gives my face a nice fresh rosy touch without being cool-toned, and since it's so pigmented and buildable, it could work on a wide variety of skintones. I don't get quite 12 hours of wear, but it does stay on longer than my average cheek color. 




Overall, I think this is a great blush. Pigmented, with a flattering shade, soft, and cheaper than Nars, for a larger quantity, and imo a similar (or even superior) quality!

  1. I wish I lived in the US so I could take advantage of that sale! I've always wanted to try one of these Tarte blushes. The colour looks really pretty on your cheeks and it seems like it has fantastic pigmentation and texture :)

    1. Tell me about it, I was always jealous about sales in the USA when I lived in France! Tarte is not even sold there!
      Blushing Bride is very pigmented, it's really blended on the picture where I'm wearing it.
