Tarte Exposed is a very warm-toned, medium-dark pink with a matte finish. It is a permanent blush that retails for $29.00 and contains 0.2 oz.
Tarte Exposed Amazonian Clay Blush ($26.00 for 0.20 oz.) is muted, medium rosy mauve with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. This shade has been part of the permanent range for awhile, but it is being repromoted alongside the three new shades, and I thought it was a good excuse to update photos/swatches of it as well as pull new dupes. The Amazonian Clay Blush formula is supposed to have 12-hour wear along with a "supremely soft" texture. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage (up to semi-opaque) with a dusty, lightly powdery consistency that does kick up a noticeable amount of powder in the pan, but it didn't appear dry or chalky on the skin. The color wore well for eight hours, which is in line with most formulas for me, but it is below the length claimed. MAC Blushbaby (P, $24.00) is darker (90% similar).
