Review: Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in 'Blushing Bride'

The package has its own mirror, which I love. The packaging is really cute. 

That's my dog sleeping on my bed in the reflection of the mirror, lol. 

This is with flash, and I obviously wouldn't put this much on my face!! I put extra because at first it wasn't showing up in photos. 

You can't really tell from photos, but this shade has a LOT of shimmer to it. 

This is the picture from Sephora's website of the color. It's called 'Blushing Bride', its a pretty deep plum-y color with shimmer. 

This blush is very long-wearing! This color is a dark plum-pink, and it has shimmer to it. It makes you glow! I love it. I look like I have a natural flush.  

I like that it's a more natural product, so I might go back to try out the nudish colors, to see if I can use that as a light bronzer-type blush. I want to eventually replace my makeup and cosmetics that have harmful chemicals with more natural-type products. 

I have medium skin and it looks very nice on me. It might be too strong of a color for lighter tones. But the formula is great, its very silky and easy to blend on cheeks. There are lots of shades to choose from.

I also like that it is free of many different harmful chemicals.

Here is the description from

A long-wearing, solar-baked blush that lasts up to 12 hours.
What it does:
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!
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Petrochemicals
- Phthalates
- GMOs
- Triclosan

Have you tried this blush? What colors do you like?
