I know, I'm so late to the party on this one. These beauties have been raved about for what seems like forever, but I have finally just recently gotten my hands on one.
The Tarte Amazonian 12-hour Blush is infused with natural clay that is harvested from the Amazon River and then naturally baked in the sun. Its not only filled with nutrients and healthy ingredients, but its also made without all of the bad stuff (parabens, sulfates, GMOs, synthetic fragrances, etc). The formula benefits all skin types, which in my opinion is just amazing - a one size fits all blush. The Amazonian clay balances the skin. Its helps those with oily skin by minimizing oil in and around the pores, helping the product stay in place. For those of us with dry skin, this blush uses hydrating properties to naturally restore the skins moisture. Lastly, combination skin types get the best of both worlds. This product zeros in on everyone's skin concerns and delivers all of its amazing benefits. Now that you've heard the spiel, lets hear my review.
The shade Dazzled ($26.00) * is described as a soft rose by Sephora, but I see it as a pinkier plum. My boyfriend called it raspberry colored, which I totally agree with. Whatever you want to call the color, its just perfect for fall and winter. It has some small shimmer, but its hardly noticeable when applied. Its so natural looking! It goes on the cheeks like a dream - the pigmentation is great, and it blends well. As far as the 12-hour staying power goes, I don't know. I haven't had the need to use it for a full twelve, but it has lasted me at least 8 hours which is good enough for me. It is without a doubt longer lasting than my MAC blushes. I love their packaging, shade range, longevity, and ingredients. I'll be adding quite a few of these to my birthday/holiday wishlist!
