The Amazonian Clay Blush formula is supposed to have 12-hour wear along with a “supremely soft” texture. It had medium, buildable coverage (up to mostly opaque with two to three layers) paired with a very smooth, soft, lightly dusty consistency that was very easy to work with on the skin as the blush blended out beautifully. As I blended out the powder, it developed a very subtle natural sheen–not enough to make it a satin but just enough to keep it from appearing flat or dry on the skin. I wish I experienced better wear with the formula, because 12-hours is certainly a dream, but it did last for nine hours, which is better than most powder blushes for me. As long as that’s not a deal-breaker, this one could be worth checking out.

I don’t know why, I always think that I should like these Tarte blushes, but then I never do. They usually look kind of flat to me, and, when I’ve tried them, haven’t been the easiest to blend.

I am starting to get interested in how branding works, on a psychological level — why I seem to be drawn to some brands (in clothing as well as skin care and cosmetics), while other, similar brands leave me cold. I get why I’m drawn to brands with either a science-y or artsy feel/aura to them, but lots of times I can’t figure out quite what ineffable part of the image it is. Something about Tarte’s image appeals to me, and their some of their base products were my mainstays when my skin was oilier/I still had breakouts, but a lot of their other products just don’t quite hit the mark for me. I love some of the new metallic eyeshadows, but most of their eyeshadow palettes have just been to warm and not quite pigmented enough for me.

Tarte’s blushes are very skin-friendly. They don’t contain dimethicone, which is the ingredient that generally makes “creamy,” “buttery,” “smooth” etc powders feel so luxe but it can also clog pores and just generally is more good for the product than it is for your face. It’s the ingredient missing from mineral blushes as well. I’m personally willing to work with a less elegant formulation if it’ll be kinder to my skin, though I understand why other people with less fussy skin would be annoyed by Tarte’s blushes. Compared to mineral blushes, Tarte’s are far more pigmented and long-lasting.

That is totally intriguing to me as well. The sciencey vibe often seems too sterile for me personally (Clinique never speaks to me except black honey lipstick) and Benefit seems a bit gimmicky and juvenile. Bobbi Brown is good but a bit ‘mature’ and bland at times. Urban Decay is sucking me in these days with energy and flair in their products as well as Kat Von D. Nars is always classy with quality. Smash box, Stila, meh. Becca seems so in with Jaclyn Hill who is so vain and obnoxious. Interesting…

I like this one, think it has just enough red in it that it won’t go muddy on me but still look very natural, will need to check my stash for dupes.
