WHAT YOU GET: (1) Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush compact

  • Using a blush brush, fan over the apples of the cheeks, blending along the cheekbone.

It all started in a one-bedroom apartment in 1999. Maureen Kelly, a self-confessed beauty addict, became frustrated with all the unhealthy, synthetic-laden cosmetics available in the stores. She then set out to create healthy, nourishing cosmetics and Tarte Cosmetics was born. Formulated without parabens, phthalates and synthetic fragrances (just to name a few), Tarte Cosmetics brings exceptional results to the everyday woman. And Tarte doesn’t just stop at the formulas – even their chic, runway-inspired packaging is eco-friendly!

Nothing comes close to this blush!

I have the shade Blissful and it’s one of my favorite blushes! The color is really pigmented, as you can see from the pan, but it applies naturally and is buildable. 💞 The formula of this really makes it worth it, that’s why the price tag is quite understandable! Nothing comes close to the quality of this!

Must have for people who want a natural blush!

This blush is amazing! I honestly didn't like the pigmentation at first because I could barely see color on my cheeks but I realize it just takes 2-3 layers to build the pigmentation! It's looks natural, so much so in fact that it doesn't make me conscious that people will notice I'm wearing makeup. I will definitely buy Exposed again!

Great color!

I bought this product because it was organic and natural and I'm a sucker for trying organic make-up. At first I really loved this product. I love the pigmentation and I think it is long wearing considering that most organic products are not as long wearing since it has little to no chemicals. However, after a few months of use, I started breaking out. I have extremely sensitive skin so I was a bit sad that this happened. I really wanted for all Tarte products to be "hiyang" with me but I have since tried other Tarte stuff and it's just not working for me at all. I still give it 4 stars though because it really is an amazing blush product and the color is fab. But just not for sensitive skin I guess.

Love it!

I got mine in the shade muted strawberry red. Since it is pigmented, i use this with a light hand and tap off the excess. The color suits me so well that it looked like it was all so natural. Buildable i must say and worth the money! Long lasting too.

So worth it!

I was never into high end blushes until I tried this and realized that you really are getting what you paid for from Tarte blushes. It takes a looong time for the product to hit the pan so you're getting a lot out of it. The blushes are very buildable without making you look like a clown. It does last 12 hours on me without retouching and I still have a fair amount of blush on my cheeks when I remove my makeup at night. This is a feat considering I have oily skin. Love it!

This is blush is SUPER WORTH IT. It's expensive but a little bit really goes a long way because it's really pigmented and it lasts ALL DAY LONG. These are very easy to blend and the colour selection will fit every skin tone! Would repurchase other shades soon <3
