blends well

i love how this blends and wears

- Sephora User

i absolutely love how this product applies and blends

staying power


it really stays 12 hours

- Sephora User

it really stays 12 hours

- Sephora User



it gives such health and glow to your skin with a lightweight and pigmented formula

- Sephora User

it's a great product, it's lightweight it's feels soft and looks very beautiful

- Ulta User


does not have fallout

the main downfall of this blush is the price - it's quite expensive

- Sephora User

the fall out seems nonexistent and the pigment is reasonably present- meaning it’s not so intense you have to waste product by tapping it off and you have time to build the color to your liking which is what i much more prefer

- Sephora User



formula is smooth and beautiful on the skin

- Sephora User

it applies smoothly and evenly and makes my skin look great and smooth and youthful

- Ulta User



it's a super soft and almost creamy consistency and it goes on so nicely

- Sephora User

they are blendable and the textures are soft in a way that isn't "creamy", making them feel like you have nothing on

- Sephora User

water resistance

water resistant

then, after applying tarte blush and tarte matte bronzer along with urban decay eye makeup and smashbox eye primer (i feel smashbox eye primer doesn't try my eyes out like urban decays but both will hold eyeshadow) and smashbox brow tech (which is incredible and waterproof)

- Ulta User

it hasn't clogged my pores and i've had no breakouts; it washes off quickly and evenly with any facial cleanser i choose to use

- Sephora User



i purchased the dollface shade and am very impressed, it has such natural sheer coverage and does not sit on top of my other makeup, not talc-y at all and it blends in seamlessly

- Sephora User

you can layer them or wear it sheer and it looks beautiful either way and manages to look natural too

The BEST blush, ever.

Oh, I am SO glad that Drugstore.com got this product! I made my original purchase of Tarte's Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush elsewhere, but let me tell you, I'm a HUGE FAN of it! Now I can buy it here when I get my skincare stuff!!! (cough *Arcona* cough) This blush is totally great- the Amazon Clay in the formula gives it amazing staying power! I have oily, sensitive, aging skin (how's that for a triple whammy?) and this blush really works wonders. It doesn't slide off of my face, it doesn't change colors, it miraculously heals the odd dry patch I sometimes get in winter on my otherwise oily cheeks, it doesn't irritate at all, and it never looks cakey! Plus, the color kind of "sinks in" to my skin so that it looks like the color is naturally glowing from within my face, not a makeup on top! I really do believe this is a miracle product, no lie. (I already own four of them and am heading toward more right now- the new colors are beckoning me- those saucy little devils...) One thing I will caution the 'new user' about is that you DO NOT need to apply much product, as it is highly pigmented! If you use a very light touch (and build up coverage, if you find it necessary) you will be beautiful. This stuff rocks! (and no, I don't work for them...) <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

Review for Blissful and Exposed

Shade: Blissful - Described as a "shimmering warm peach", there's a little shimmer in the pan but it goes on matte. It's also definitely a pinky coral, I really don't see any peach. - Texture is soft and smooth. Not powdery or chalky. - Blush applies somewhat sheer, but is very buildable. Although it applies sheer, it is very pigmented so a little goes a long way for a naturally flushed look. - Blends well with any brush I use. I've used a small stippling brush, a dense angled blush brush, and a regular blush brush. Coral shades like Blissful are natural-looking for most, if not all people. It's certainly the most flattering shade for light, warm-toned skin like mine as opposed to the traditional pink blush. Shade: Exposed - Gorgeous and very unique shade - it's a soft brown with mauve/dusty rose tones. - Applies more full-on than Blissful, can be built up but won't look overdone on many skin tones because it blends very well and is a very natural and "earthy" shade. As beautiful as Exposed is, it did not work at all for my skin tone (NC20). I feel like this is one of those shades that can look very different on lots of people. On my warm, yellow-based light skin, the mauve tone was very pronounced and while mauve is usually flattering on it's own, the mixture of brown made me look bruised - I didn't get any of the dusty rose tones which would've worked for me. I first put on Exposed very sheerly and I could hardly see it. So I put just a little more and it looked off, like my cheek was weirdly shadowy or dirty. I kept building the color; it basically went from nothing, to shadowy, to dirty, to straight up bruisey. I even made a desperate, last attempt to use Exposed as a contour because it had the shadowy effect when sheer, and it still looked really strange. I like the grungy bruisey look on my eyes, but just not on my cheeks where people are more likely to think I was actually punched. I gave Exposed to my naturally tan sister (NC30-35ish) and it looks very pretty on her. On her medium, warm-toned skin, I see the soft brown most with a hint of dusty rose, the mauve is still there but far less pronounced. Exposed doesn't give a flush at all, but it's somehow still very flattering and doesn't scream "blush". Contrary to popular belief, I can tell you that Exposed is not universally flattering even if the blush itself is neutral and is described as "nude". Lesson learned - neutral doesn't necessarily make something universally flattering. It is a gorgeous shade, but just know that your undertones more than anything will definitely determine how nice it looks on you. Looking at swatches online, I feel like Exposed looks really good on warm, medium skin tones. I don't know how well it works on cool-toned skin of any shade, but it definitely didn't do anything for me. It's still worth checking out if you're unsure of how it will look on you. Exposed is a simple and yet complex blush, certainly the most unique in Tarte's line and just in general. But seriously, try it in-store first! With all that said, Tarte blushes are really the only higher end blushes that I feel live up to their hype. They are blendable and the textures are soft in a way that isn't "creamy", making them feel like you have nothing on. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

I love this blush!! It goes on super easily, blends well, and it’s pigmented enough that you don’t have to use much. 100% worth it

I got this as a birthday gift from Sephora and it’s been the best blush I’ve ever used to this day. It stays on a really long time and goes on the face smoothly

I purchased shade "fearless." It is an okay blush, but not exactly what I was looking for. That said, I am not a huge blush person - which is mostly why I put a "no" for repurchasing. My biggest issue was that it is VERY pigmented, making it difficult to blend out if too much is applied, something that is not difficult to do, unfortunately. One thing I haven't tried is setting my foundation with a powder prior to application, usually I just put it atop of my bronzer. Another issue I had with it, is that it is filled with pretty "chunky" glitter. This is something that I could've discovered prior to purchase if I would have done a bit more research, so that is on me. All that said, I have loved using this as a pink eyeshadow! It works really well on the eyes.
