Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Collection

This is my current collection of Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blushes.  They are currently $31 each at Sephora and I think these are one of the best value and quality blushes on the market today.

Tarte recently gave some of their products a facelift, including these blushes.  You can see in the photo, the two with the gold embossed name are the two in the new packaging.  These powder blushes have only received a facelift, not a change in size - unlike the cheek stains and the lip tints unfortunately.

My two new shades are swatched below - and just like the others - they are beautifully pigmented, easy to apply, easy to blend, and long lasting.

I really like these blushes because they are virtually fool proof.  They go on relatively sheer at first, so as long as you use a gentle hand, you can build them up in intensity and you can apply most colours to most skin tones.

On the left is True Love, one of the newly released shades.  It is described as a reddish pink.  I think it gives a nice healthy flush - perfect for winter.

On the left is Natural Beauty - described as a muted strawberry red.  It is a deeper done, and more pigmented, it gives a deeper tint - but also very wearable.


  1. I hear Sephora calling my name….do you?

  2. love the pinky red tones! I loooove the ones I have, but I've noticed that after 6+ months of use, they almost dry out...did you experience this with some of your older blushers?
