Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush in Glisten

Hi guys! I’ve been rubbish at publishing my posts every other day this month. I’m going to try to do better! But so far 2015 has been great! :)

I’m also going to pop into Sephora this weekend, I feel bad for my bank account already… but it’s gotta happen! I hear there’s Givenchy, MUFE, Boscia, Estee Lauder, Benefit, Peter Thomas Roth, Nuxe and possibly Guerlain as well. I also got a dream last night where I was shopping in there for hours and magically they gave me my entire order for free because I was the 100th customer or something. *shakes head*

Anyway moving on, one brand I won’t be finding in there is Tarte but here’s another pretty shade from the Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush range. I have Exposed which is seriously one of the best blushes ever. So far, I’ve been successful in not letting my Tarte collection of out of control (something that’s happened with Nars blushes). Glisten is the only other shade I have.

Glisten falls into the peachy pink with gold shimmer or Nars Orgasm-like category. I’m sorry I don’t have comparison swatches but in terms of shimmer involved, it’s Orgasm > Glisten > Deep Throat. When it comes to colour I think Orgasm a bit more peachy, I’d say Glisten is more like Deep Throat. But, it is a very beautiful shade, appropriate for any kind of makeup look.

When swatched the glitter looks very gritty and prominent, that’s not how it looks on the cheek though! They are sheer blushes but very buildable. It looks very soft and natural on the cheeks and imparts a bit of glow depending on the lighting. Overall, I like the formula a lot. It’s not too powdery or chalky, it blends seamlessly on the skin and adapts well to any base used.

What I love the most about Tarte blushes is that even though you apply it sheer, it will stay on that way for a long time. Not sure about 12 hours but it definitely lasts 7-8 hours on me with just a little bit of fading.

If you’re looking for good quality blushes, Tarte is right here amongst the top and it’s not as expensive as some of the other high end brands. The packaging with the blush colour is also very cute and easy to identify. You get 5.6g of product for $26.

    Such a pretty shade. I dont own any Tarte blushes, but I do love orgasm.

      It’s the kind of blush that would go with anything, love it. I like shimmery blushes like Orgasm. It just depends on whether I want to wear a highlighter or not. :)

        I usually skip highlighter (Agata always tells me off for doing so), so Orgasm is a great two-in-one.

    It’s my favorite Tarte blush, it’s really pretty and goes with pretty much everything! Lol about your dream, Wouldn’t it be awesome if they really gave you your purchases for free? Can’t wait to see what you get!

      Oh I’m glad to hear that! Everyone (including me) likes Exposed a lot but Glisten is really pretty too. :)

    Looks very natural on your skin!

      Thanks Erin! xx

    Oh I’m so glad to hear it’s not as glistening on the cheek as on the arm swatch! That would be a little too shimmery for my liking! :) I agree that Tarte blushes just last and last even when applied sheer! Amazing staying power for sure!

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      True, it does look a bit overboard on my arm! :p

    Good to know not all that shimmer ends up on the face! Glisten is a pretty shade for sure. I have several Tarte blushes, but I haven’t used them for a long time! Must bust them out again soon :)

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      I use Exposed a lot more so, Glisten gets a little less love. I’m always rotating my makeup so I keep discovering new things that I haven’t used in a long time! 😉

    It looks so pretty! I wish your dream came true, haha, free shopping woo.

      Thank you! I think after muted pinks, peachy pink blushes are my favourite. :)

    ooh very(nars) orgasm-ish! Pretty:) I still havent bought exposed…i cant bring myself to look past that horrid stuff texture:s

    This does look very pretty! I love Orgasm, but find it way too gilttery; this looks to be a more manageable level of glitter.

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      Completely, Orgasm can be a bit too much for the day, this one is pretty great. :)

    Wow! I really love the blushes by Tarte and this one just has an amazing glow to it.. which is both clear on the swatch and your cheek! Absolutely beautiful :)

      Oh Thank you! I’m glad you like it, it would look great on you as well! ^_^
