Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Fearless Review

Oh. My. Gosh. I am so excited to talk to you guys about this blush. I went shopping at Sephora with my friend the other day and I saw this. It was such an impulse buy, but I don't even care. I noticed that they had 3 new blush colours and I was too excited by the shiny, colourful display. Yes, I am a child at heart.

This is actually my first Tarte blush so I was pretty excited to try it out. I decided to get the blush in Fearless. It looks a bit bright, but it's not that scary when it's on my skin. I really like it because it's a nice coral pink colour. It adds a nice flush to the skin to add a bit of colour so you don't look too washed out. The packaging is really nice. It's really sleek, not bulky at all. There's nothing crazy about it and it could easily fit into my makeup bag if I took it travelling.

And can we talk about the imprint? It's so pretty. I love how simple it looks, and yet it adds a little something extra to the product.

This blush is very pigmented so a little goes a long way. You really don't need to put too much on your brush, otherwise you're going to look like a clown. And no one wants that. It's also really easy to apply. The powder has a very smooth consistency and transitions from brush to skin very easily. It's not a buttery or creamy consistency, so it's kind of hard to describe. I find it lasts all day too. The colour fades slightly, but the colour still looks great. There's nothing like putting blush on in the morning only to have it fade away by the afternoon. I think that's especially great if you're going to an event. You don't have to worry about having to do any touch ups, you're good to go.

This is what it looks like on. As you can see, it adds some colour to my skin without looking like I ran a marathon or went overboard with my mother's makeup. 

The price for the blush is $31 Cdn, which could be daunting. However, I think that the colour pay off, the lasting power, and just the overall quality of the product justify the cost. You definitely get what you pay for here. This product is absolutely amazing and I may be tempted to purchase more of these blushes.
