The very first Tarte product that I ever tried was the cheek stain. I alternated regularly between Dollface and Tipsy, and used them down to the very last slick. Before I got married in 2007, I treated myself to Blushing Bride cheek stain and rocked that practically my entire engagement. What do all of these shades have in common (besides the fact that I love them)? They are all available in powder form now via Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush.
Available in eight shades and infused with Tarte’s Amazonian Clay, these solar-baked blushes bring new meaning to long-wearing. Amazonian Clay is a smart ingredient, and somehow manages to mitigate problems that plague every skin type. This is especially important in a blush, because it is none too flattering too have blush chilling in crater-sized pores. I should know, been there and done that! Amazonian Clay helps minimize oil in and around pores to balance your skin and keep the blush in place, where your intend it to be. And it also helps restore moisture in your skin and improve skin texture.
Beyond the magic of the clay, Tarte added beeswax, a waterproofing agent that has been known to naturally stimulate collagen production, and Vitamin C and E to fight and protect against signs of aging. The result of these good-for-your-skin ingredients? Long-lasting blush that brightens up your face. The colors are all so wearable and beautiful. Here’s a closer look at some of the available shades:
I heart these blushes, and think everyone needs at least one in their makeup bags. Our summer pick is Tipsy — you can’t get more summery than this orangey coral. It’s the perfect universally-flattering shade, and since it performs like a rock star you don’t have to worry about this disappearing from your face during a long day (or night!).
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes retail for $25, and you can snatch them online at Tarte or at Sephora!
