Blush Bliss

Tarte Blush Bliss 4-Pan Blush Palette ($39.00 for 0.80 oz.) has four shades of warmer-toned blushes–two peach/corals and two pink-based shades. The palette had two really lovely blushes while the other two were less pigmented and shorter wearing, so it was a bit of a mixed bag. I imagine if one doesn’t mind more buildable coverage (while simultaneously enjoying pigmented blush!), then the downsides won’t be deal-breakers. I wish there was more differentiation between the shades, since there are only four; it would have nicer to see perhaps a mid-tone coral, deep copper-brown, muted plum, and a vibrant pink.

Value

A full-sized Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush retails for $29.00 and contains 0.20 oz. or costs $145.00/oz. The palette contains $116.00 worth of blush.

Genuine

Genuine is a muted, medium coral with strong, warm orange undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, somewhat powdery in the pan, but it was quite blendable on the skin. It had medium coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage with two to three layers of product. This shade lasted for nine hours on me.

Formula Overview

$29.00/0.2 oz. - $145.00 Per Ounce

The Amazonian Clay Blush formula is supposed to have 12-hour wear along with a “supremely soft” texture. There’s a lot to like about Tarte’s formula, as it is softer (sometimes dusty), blendable, and fairly smooth with good pigmentation, but for me, I rarely get 12-hour wear–I do get between 8 and 10-hour wear, though.

Breathtaking

Breathtaking is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that appeared slightly brighter buffed onto my skin. The consistency was soft, a bit thin, and a little dry, and I had trouble diffusing the edges and getting the color to look even on my cheeks. It wore well for nine hours on me before fading noticeably.

Graceful

Graceful is a medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and flecks of gold sparkle and finer pearl. It had good pigmentation in a single layer with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture, though there were larger, looser sparkles that did come away from the base powder a bit. On me, it wore for almost ten hours.

Lovable

Lovable is a deep pink with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a soft, velvety texture that was a touch powdery in the pan but blended out nicely on the skin. This shade stayed on well for ten hours before fading slightly.

For those last two shades, I am seeing this as potentially worthwhile! Even the 2 that weren’t quite as pigmented could be usable for more casual days. I agree with you that Tarte ought to have had greater variation between the different shades. A rich plum and a coppery shade would have bumped this one up onto my WL.

This is clearly good value, ounce for ounce but the shade Genuine isn’t a good colour for me and 2 C/C+ ratings, while not the worst, don’t encourage me to get this either. And you are so right, Christine, a blush with significantly different colouring – maybe a nice plum/wine shade – would have been a nice inclusion.

Oh, I am so sad this is only at Ulta! My cat’s name is Bliss, and I love Tarte’s blush formula. If shipping to Canada wasn’t ludicrous I would be buying this without even a second thought. :/

Oh, I didn’t realize that and always sort of relied on it. Does it say somewhere in your review that this is an Ulta exclusive (again, I may have read through way too quickly and missed it entirely)

i bought this and really love it. I agree that it would have been nice if a plum shade had been included, though. I think they easily could have left Breathtaking out and included that plum. Speaking just for my fair-skinned self, I’m really glad there was not a deep brown, because I would have not have bought a 4-pan palette with one pan I couldn’t wear. It would have been really nice if they had done a version for deeper skin tones, with that deep copper brown and bright pink you mentioned, and a couple other suitable shades.

Very similar sets of colours here, but I think these would be the shades most worn. I agree, it would have been better to add in some different colours.

I got this in sale because I had stored up Ulta points and I am glad I did. It presently surprised me and I think it is totally worth even full price personally. I love Tartes shimmery shades and the one in this palette Graceful is beautiful. I also really enjoy Genuine, even though it scored low I didn’t have any trouble myself. I thought it was unique when compared to last years palette. I enjoy having them both. But I am a blush addict admittedly! I think fellow blush lovers wouldn’t mind swatching in person to decide. That’s what I did. The packaging is obviously gorgeous too.

I just don‘t get the appeal of this. These shaded don‘t differ that much from any blush wheels Tarte has relieved so far. What‘s the point?
