I’m in loooooove!! – with my Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush that is.
I basically bought this blush because Essie Button raved about them and she makes everything look beautiful and purchase-worthy, and so I purchased me some blush.
=D =D =D =D It’s so pretty it hurts to look at it.
One of the issues I was having with the blush that I was using was that it seemed to wear off by the end of the day. Being the makeup newbie that I am, I thought that that was just a fact. Blush fades. Period. That’s what I thought until I heard about these Tarte blushes on Essie Button’s channel and how they were “12-hour” blushes. Wait – what? blushes can last that long? Shut the front door.
I purchased the Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in the shade Glisten. This was an easy and natural choice for me – this one has shimmer, the others do not. Need I say more? I’ll take any chance to sparkle and shine =). You can’t really see the shimmer in these photos, but when you compare Glisten to the other shades in store, it’s blatantly obvious.
This blush goes on beautifully and EVENLY. I didn’t even realize my old blush was lacking in terms of getting a smooth and even application until I used the Tarte blush.
It’s super pigmented, which means the color will stick around for a much longer time (exactly what I needed!). On that note, since it is super pigmented, I personally use a stippling brush to stipple it onto my cheeks, rather than brushing it on with a traditional blush brush. I’ve been using a stippling brush from Elf that I bought from Target for under $10…maybe even under $5?
