Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush FAQ
I find that every time there’s a new makeup product on the market, we always have some questions about the product and sometimes struggle to find the answers (more importantly… honest, unbiased answers!!). I wrote a blog post about Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blushes not too long ago sharing my thoughts on these blushes. Since I realize others could have the same questions about these blushes I decided to write an FAQ hoping it could help you in your own blush hunt :-) Let me know if you have any unanswered questions after going through these below, and I’ll be happy to address them as best as possible!
What is the best shade for my skin tone?
I believe this is THE most important question you want to know the answer to! You want to choose something that favors you and that will make you look your best. I’m with you! When I’m looking at pictures online, even swatches can never give me an exact idea on how the blush will look on my cheeks. These below are my thoughts on what I think would look better, to give you a better idea of what to buy.
Skin Type: Medium to Dark Skin Tones – I recommend Blushing Bride, Natural Beauty, Exposed, and Flush
Skin Type: Fair to Light Skin Tones – For lighter skin types, I recommed Dollface, Blissful, Amused and Tipsy
That said, I do believe that any of these shades could be used on any skin tones if applied properly. If you’re not sure how to do this, go with the recommendations above and you should be great.
What are tarte’s Amazonian Clay Blush finishes?
I’ll tell you from the shades I have:
Blushing Bride – gold shimmer
Peaceful – gold shimmer
Blissful – matte
Exposed – matte
Natural Beauty – matte
Dollface – matte
Does Blushing Bride make you look shiny and does it have a lot of glitter?
It does not. The golden sparkles barely showed up in my skin. The glitter is barely noticeable in the cheeks even though in the pan it looks like it has lots of sparkles.
Is Exposed a nude or brown color? Is it a Bronzer?
Exposed is not a bronzer. It’s not a nude color and it’s not a brown blush color either. Exposed is a blush in a dusty rose color. The color that shows up in my cheeks is nothing like the color on the pan. In my skin tone (NC40), it’s a rosy color, but not overpowering.
Do they really last 12 hours?
They haven’t lasted 12 hours in my skin type. The longest I’ve worn them without fading is 8 hours (which I think is pretty good!). After this, they start to fade away.
Do they cause breakouts for sensitive skin?
I haven’t experienced any breakouts at all. I have very sensitive skin and they don’t cause any flakiness on my skin or make it drier.
How do you apply tarte’s Amazonian Clay Blushes?
I use any of these brushes to apply them: MAC 168, MAC 109, Hakuhodo K002, Hakuhodo S103 or even a Fan Brush. Any blush or powder blush you have will work perfectly well for application. Remember they are very pigmentment so go with an easy hand. Dab your brush in the blush and then apply to the apples of your cheeks.
Does the “natural clay” do anything for my skin?
I’ve have these blushes for 5 months and use them almost every day. I haven’t seen any diference in my skin either good or bad. It does sound really good, but I’m guessing you can only see the results in a lab over a longer period. And, you need some sort of crazy scientist to do some skin tests on you. :-)
Can you buy refills for these blushes?
Not that I know of.
What’s my favorite shade?
How can I pick just one from all these beautiful blushes?!? LOL… My favorite shade is Exposed. I just love the color on my skin tone.
