So I am still in a bit of a Tarte frenzy with all the samples I received in preparation for the brand’s launch at the end of the month on QVC. Today is the turn of the much loved, much raved about Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush.

Now! These have been so hyped up, and people were so upset when, at first, the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes weren’t included in the QVC stock line up, that I kind of loved this blusher before I even tried it. But now that I have had a chance to play, I am not sure that I love it as much as I thought I would.
It is, without doubt, a really good blusher. It goes on really nicely, the staying power is really very good, and Fearless is a very pretty colour. But I am not doing cart wheels about it. I really don’t know why because it does everything I need a blush to do. It is possibly because I just don’t love it as much as the Clinique Cheek Pop blushes that I am completely in love with. But it’s a great blush. I am not sure what I expected it to do really!!?
I think maybe it lacks a bit of the luminosity that the Cheek Pop has. Also the texture is really hard which I find a touch off-putting.
I’ll let you judge for yourself. Here is the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Fearless along with a full face of makeup:

It is really lovely, there’s no denying that. And here’s a before and after picture with just the Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation.

What do you think? I must add, I am totally in love with the Tarte Sultry Sunset palette which I shall show you soon! For details of the Tarte launch at QVC, read this POST.

  1. I’m really excited about these! I hope I’m not disappointed by them, but there are a couple of shades that I’ve not seen anything like, or own anything like them.
    I’ve been loving the look of the Cheek Pops too and have already saved my pennies for those gorgeous things!

    This Fearless looks very similar to my current MAC blush in Fleur Power so I probably won’t get this one! 🙂

  2. Thank you for your honest review. It is so refreshing that you are not swayed by the fact that these are PR samples and that you always make it clear when they are. So many other bloggers gush about every product they are sent, it makes me a tad dubious. Love your blog and can’t wait for Tarte products on QVC, although my bank balance won’t thank me!
