I’m becoming quite a Tarte! Okay, I know that was really corny, but I have loved Tarte Cosmetics since they first introduced the vanguard of gel cheek stains years ago, and now they are on a serious roll of innovation with their gorgeously green makeup that doubles as skincare. (Maybe I should have hyphenated those last seven words…)
I was sent a few of to review, and it’s rare that wear a product and review it the next day because usually I want to road test it more thoroughly. BUT, Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush is the second exception to my 30 day rule.
So here’s the claim (quite lengthy, but good reading, and the bold highlights are my addition):
What it does:
Infused with natural clay harvested from the banks of the Amazon River and naturally baked by the sun, this nutrient-rich blush benefits all skin types for a fade-free flawless finish for an amazing 12 hours. Inspired by Tarte’s best-selling shades of cheek stains and lip tints, the colors range from soft to vivid to suit a wide variety of skintones. For oily skin types, Amazonian clay minimizes oil in and around pores to balance skin and keep product in place. Those with dry skin will benefit from the clay’s nourishing and hydrating properties, which naturally restore skin’s moisture. Combination skin types can rely on its ability to zero in on skin concerns and deliver benefits to restore complexion harmony. The result? Blush that wears better, longer, and truer!
What else you need to know:
This blush features the following Skinvigorating™ ingredients: Vitamins A and E, two natural preservatives that act as anti-inflammatory emollients and protect against free radical damage; Vitamin C, an antioxidant that fights free radical damage and prevents oxidative stress and premature signs of aging, while brightening the skin; Amazonian clay, a nutrient-rich, multitasking, skin-balancing clay that reduces dryness and flakiness, improves skin clarity, elasticity, firmness, and texture while removing oil from the skin’s surface for smooth application and wear.
Why I love it:
√ Rich saturated color
√ 8 Vibrant shades
√ Lives up to it’s long-wearing claim
√ Feels lovely on my skin
√ Does not look powdery—looks like blush from within
And while I am loathe to put my picture on the internet, here I am wearing Blushing Bride which is an extremely wearable plum color.
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush gets 5 Blings!
BTW- I’m wearing my favorite red lippie—also from Tarte!
