Tarte Fearless Amazonian Clay Blush

Tarte Fearless Amazonian Clay Blush ($26.00 for 0.20 oz.) is described as a “coral pink.” It’s a medium, subtly warm-toned pink with a satin-matte finish. On my warmer skin tone, it almost looks cool-toned, but in the pan, it’s definitely warmer in tone. Milani Bella Rosa (11) (P, $7.99) is much darker but when worn lightly, it is similar. MAC Formal (LE) is lighter. Guerlain Madame Rougit (LE, $67.00) is similar. Edward Bess Bed of Roses (P, $43.00) is cooler-toned. NYX Peach (P, $5.00) is warmer-toned.
