Somehow up until recently I managed to avoid all the awesomeness that is the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blushes. Not sure HOW that happened!
When I was at Sephora recently and I saw Radiant & Rested Volume II, I also saw Amused and Tipsy blushes and knew they needed to come home with me. So bright, so fun!
What exactly is Amazonian Clay anyway? Here’s some info.
“Infused with natural clay harvested from the banks of the Amazon River and naturally baked by the sun, this nutrient-rich blush benefits all skin types for a fade-free flawless finish for an amazing 12 hours. Inspired by Tarte’s best-selling shades of cheek stains and lip tints, the colors range from soft to vivid to suit a wide variety of skintones. For oily skin types, Amazonian clay minimizes oil in and around pores to balance skin and keep product in place. Those with dry skin will benefit from the clay’s nourishing and hydrating properties, which naturally restore skin’s moisture. Combination skin types can rely on its ability to zero in on skin concerns and deliver benefits to restore complexion harmony. The result? Blush that wears better, longer, and truer!”
But wait, there’s more!
This blush features the following Skinvigorating™ ingredients:
– Vitamins A and E, two natural preservatives that act as anti-inflammatory emollients and protect against free radical damage
– Vitamin C, an antioxidant that fights free radical damage and prevents oxidative stress and premature signs of aging, while brightening the skin
– Amazonian clay, a nutrient-rich, multitasking, skin-balancing clay that reduces dryness and flakiness, improves skin clarity, elasticity, firmness, and texture while removing oil from the skin’s surface for smooth application and wear
They currently come in eight different colors.
Amused is a really bright fuchsia pink with no shimmer.
Tipsy is a bright coral with coral shimmer.
Both of these blushes feel really soft and you get a GOOD amount of color payoff from them. And they last. Boy do they last. When they say 12-hour blush they mean it! I wore Amused for a good 10 hours and there was no fading at all. Fabulous stuff!
