Tarte Celebrated Amazonian Clay Blush

Tarte Celebrated Amazonian Clay Blush ($26.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a dusty pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. Tarte Breathless (LE, $26.00) is browner. Chanel Innocence (160) (P, $45.00) is darker. Makeup Geek Spell Bound (P, $9.99) is more shimmery. MAC Cheeky Bugger (LE, $21.00) is pinker. Giorgio Armani Daybreak (503) (P, $46.00) is similar. Tarte Elevated (LE, $26.00) is darker. Tarina Tarantino Neopolitan Lane (P, $25.00) is darker, browner. NYX Dusty Rose (P, $5.00) is darker, pinker. MAC Blush All Day (P, $23.50) is more shimmery. MAC The Perfect Cheek (LE, $21.00) is cooler-toned, pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

This is a blush best for fairer skin than mine, as it really doesn’t show up on my cheeks (my arm is lighter than my face); sometimes with shades like this, I can see the effect more in real life than in photos, but I could barely tell I had anything on. Even as I layered it on, all I could start to detect was a slight difference in texture (more mattified relative to the rest of my face). The blush had a fairly soft texture, but it was slightly powdery, though I think with one or two layers of the blush, it didn’t look powdery on the face. What I was able to see on my cheeks seemed to last well for almost eight and a half hours, and then it started to fade and let some shine through.

This is part of Tarte’s spring collection, which should be available soon.

Not a colour for me. I was dismayed to see, a few months ago, that they discontinued several of their blush shades (of course, they were colours I was planning to buy at some point – Amused, Adored…) but at least they’ve retained Natural Beauty (which is my fave blush of all time, pretty much) and Blushing Bride.

I can see the subtle flush of color on you but I agree that it’s best for fair skin tones. It looks like it’ll be a great natural everyday kind of blush

I love it and I’m quite a bit more fair than you are so it was great to read your review! I was just thinking that I need to stop looking at pictures of blush online because they are often too dark on me but this might be lovely!

I like the look of this. I’ll have to swatch it on my very pale face. I might prefer the Chanel based on your dupe list swatches though.

I had hoped that the Hourglass ALB in Dim Infusion would be more like this, but on me its a hideous shimmering color that stands alone as far as color.. Similar to but not pure pink or coral or peach… It’s just so disappointing. Tarte no workie on me either. 🙁 I may still indulge in a color non-Hourglass for a fresh new blush of a warm peach! (My MAC work fine, but I just love new ones!:D Especially if it’s ruddy.. I LOVE those! Side note: MAC Crazed Imagination makes a stellar eyeshadow! 🙂 I am so waiting to hop on the Marsala blush palette, for sure! Although Sephora has the WORST customer service, I am already enamored 😀

Well, I have quite loved the looks of the blush palette since photos were leaked in the beginning of the month, yet I’m still not sure which of the three are creams and likewise.. I prefer my blush to be a powder. But this does not deter me from the many other good brands adding saucy muted shades… I’m still carrying an intrigue with Chanel Jersey & Rose Innocence… I don’t feel like using old ones and blending my ass off. My ALB in Dim Infusion would have most likely suited you, as everything else does.. That’s a compliment! 😀 Winter is my more matte season with delicately placed highlighters.. Simplicity made with stunning muted colors of boldness, lightened and smooth as silk to apply and run away from the mirror. Seriously though, I was so excited about one ALB that I bought them all and never tried them all.. So disappointed. Note to self: STOP DOING THAT! Same with every form of ALP but they work in multiple ways that it’s easy to find use. Maybe I can use the blush as eyeshadow or trade it. I use things randomly and about once each time, trying something different each time, usually, when feeling sporadic.. 🙂

It seems Tarte has really lightened their blush collection. My favorite, Flush, mysteriously went from a deep raspberry to a ho hum natural pink. Good news for the fair skinned ladies, I guess.

Hehe, I think this is the most supernaturally super natural blush for you! I reall y can see it n you, and I think it looks nice – but definitely a BLUSH either for lighter tones or people who want a really gentle effect. I’m a bit weird about blush though – I like my blushes to be hardcore bright (see: Chanel Affinite), but I blend them down to the point where it’s almost like…you know if you turn your head obliquely in the mirror, you can see that you’re wearing blush, but then if you turn face on it’s not obvious at all? Kind of like the shimmer on a road on a hot day. Does anyone else get/do this? Or am I just as odd as I think I am? 😀

It’s tempting. I’m fair and it’d be my first Tarte blush, but I’d be happy with the NYX dupe. Is it worth the splurge for Tarte’s formula?
