Blush can really turn your entire face around. It literally can make you smile - without ever having to move your lips. While Tarte is known for their cult-favorite cream blushes and cheek stains, they've recently launched a powder blush made out of Amazon clay and it's swoon-worthy!
Tarte's Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush was inspired by their best-selling cheek and lip stains. I actually like them MORE because, applied with a brush, you get a very natural effect that you can build on from day to night for a more dramatic, intense evening look.
And the 8 shades are so sensational, I literally want to wear each one day after day. But I do have a favorite (or two). Number One favorite has to be Natural Beauty - a perfectly red-hued girly girl blush. Number Two is Flush, a deep berry that gives you that seductive, flirty "flushed" effect. Other colors are light pink, bright pink (great for summer), even a coral and a nude.
A word (or several...) from the company:
"These solar-baked blushes are infused with Amazonian Clay, nature's most perfect ingredient. These nutrient rich
and skin-nourishing Amazonian clay blushes restore harmony for a flawless finish that lasts all day.
The soft blush is great for all skin types:
Oily skin: Amazonian clay minimizes oil in and around pores to balance skin and keep product in place
Dry skin: Amazonian clay hydrates skin naturally to restore moisture so your blush wears better & longer
Dull skin: Amazonian clay improves the appearance of skin clarity and skin texture
Combination skin: Amazonian clay is completely intuitive; gives skin an overall smooth & even appearance"
The color lasts for hours (not exactly 12, but close enough) and, as with all Tarte products, the blush is made sans parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances and petrochemicals.
Good for the environment = Good for your skin.
