Blush isn't a beauty product I use too often, but this blusher has got me hooked! I must have read and watched a thousand bloggers / vloggers say good things about this. And they did for a good reason. These Amazonian clay blushes from Tarte have got it in them, and how!
Around a month ago, I got two of these in the shades Natural Beauty and Tipsy. I couldn't decide between the two and so decided to spoil myself with both. Tell me this happens to you too. Please! Natural beauty is a bright rosy pink-red and Tipsy as you can see above is a bright coral shade with a hint of pink. These are just the perfect colors for Spring, so I m kind of not beating myself up for buying both! Also I've been wearing them quite often, so its all fine! ;)
The formula is a soft powder, which blends well with the skin leaving a nice tint of color on the cheeks. The pigmentation is pretty good and is build-able. However, I don't prefer too much going on, on my cheeks, so a subtle wash of color is good for me. So as you can see, I have applied it with a light hand and it looks very natural.
The claim is that this lasts for 12 hours, but honestly I haven't tested it for that long. I have tried it for about 7-8 hours, and it didn't fade or oxidize on me. So that's good news and frankly 8 hours is a good for me. I cant expect better. It is infused with some goodness of amazonian clay which is supposed to minimize the oil on your skin as well as hydrate it at the same time, thereby balancing it all. It is also free of parabens, sulphates and all the other irritating stuff you don't want to put on your skin! So Thumbs up, Tarte!
So, If you are looking for a bright summery shade to accompany your cheeks to the beach, then look nowhere beyond Tipsy. It is a gorgeous pinky-coral shade with a hint of shimmer and looks beautiful especially with a tan. The shimmer isn't too much, it is very fine and subtle, so it wont bother you much if you aren't a shimmer loving person.
There you go, a reason why I chose this for my Giveaway. I was sure you guys will love it! 'Cuz, truly it is a gem!
