~[REVIEW & SWATCHES]: Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blushes Natural Beauty & Tipsy~

This year is the year of blusher loving for me.
Already included 2 Tarte,2 Nars and 1 benefit blushes in my collection along with Sleek's Blush by 3 palette in Californ.i.a
I have eyed Tarte products forever and suddenly when an aunt was coming from Canada I knew what I wanted her to bring.
The first two Tarte beauties that I now proudly own are

A long-wearing, supremely soft blush infused with Amazonian clay harvested from the banks of the Amazon River and naturally baked by the sun.
Product Performance: This 12-hour blush universally benefits all skin types for a fade-free, flawless finish in shades ranging from soft to vivid and matte to shimmer to suit a wide variety of skin tones.
Powered By: Amazonian clay minimizes oil in and around pores to balance skin and keep product in place while also hydrating the skin naturally to restore moisture, reducing the appearance of dry, flaky skin.

The blushers come boxed in these plastic envelope type boxes on which the details about the shades and ingredients is written.Each blush on has a different color case according to the color of the blush inside.As you can see here the Natural beauty is a lovely strawberry red and Tipsy is Coral packaging.
The cases itself are made of plastic that ensure a clasp lid to close.They wont open very easily so you can easily throw it in your bag and be carefree about it.The mirrors inside the blushons are also good to go as you don't have to depend on any other cosmetic mirror.

Its easier to pick your desired shade when you are in a hurry.The blushes are embossed with the lovely amazon river and the forest around it.It gives you the feel of presence of Amazonian Clay in it definitely.
These are matte shades.Natural beauty is a lovely strawberry red shade.Its important to mention here that this is my first red blush.I have seen deeper shades in NYX but still this appealed to me so much.Its very true to its name.Just a swipe and there you are naturally radiant looking.Its very very pigmented & may look too much on the first swipe but no its much more beautiful when blended & worn properly.

The other one is Tipsy.Its a matte Coral shade.As much as I hate coral lipsticks I adore coral blushes.This is the coral blush for me this summers.This is the type of blush that you can wear according to your mood.Either you can blend it and achieve a subtle look or build it up for a brighter look.I can already see myself wearing a lot of Tipsy in summers.
Though the blushes clam to have a 12 hr staying power but I have seen them lasting a good amount of 8 hours maximum.May be its my skin type i.e oily.I have tried applying these with both a blush brush and my fingers.They blend extremely well with fingers as well just like a cream blusher.All of the available shades are pretty & one can't help but within one's heart to own each one of them.The presence of amazonian clay keeps oil of the face and is specially good for people having oily skin like me.
Here are some more pictures of the packaging for you.
Swatches are here.No primer is used underneath these.

I definitely have more shades on my wishlist now.I am literally in love with Tarte blushes.They are worth the price.
Captivating and Amused may be my next ones.
These can be bought at Sephora or from
For orders within Pakistan ,you can pre order at Beauty Hub,Rouge & couple of other Facebook wholesale retailers.
They are priced at $26,which may seem a lot for a blush but then a tarte blush is no less than a NARS one.Its worth the price you pay.So manny good things about it.One must definitely give these a try & once you try them you will be hooked just like me.
What is your current favourite blush?
Thanks a lot for stopping by.
