Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes Review

While browsing through the aisles of Sephora, the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush display is bound to catch a handful of customer's eyes. While some of the colors are very vibrant and bright, they look beautiful and less frightening once blended out. So, please do not allow the pan color to scare you.  I currently own 4 and I love every single one of them! 

What does Tarte claim?

"Infused with natural clay harvest 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."

My verdict:
These blushes are absolutely amazing and I highly recommend them. The four shades that I own are great for everyday wear. On my oily skin, it really does live up to the claim of lasting 12 hours. They are highly pigmented so you only need a very minimal amount to get color to show up on your cheeks. While you can easily build it up, you can also sheer it out for a nice flush. Although I question the overall benefits of the longtime use that Tarte claims, this blush is great for what it is and doesn't break out my very acne prone skin. Overall, I highly recommend stopping by the display and swatching a few. I'm sure one of the fifteen shades will catch your eye and you won't regret biting the bullet of buying one!

-Very pigmented
-Great for everyday wear
-Works for dry or oily skin
-Doesn't irritate sensitive skin
-Not powdery
-Minimal amount of product needed
-Long lasting (14 hours for me)
-Wide range of shades

Achiote - matte a tad warmer peachy/pink than Blissful, but EXTREMELY similar
Charisma -  shimmery warm pink (Similar to BeneFit's Bella Bamba)
Natural Beauty - matte muted strawberry red (VERY pigmented. Use a very light hand or stippling brush. I use the MAC 187.)

Although I love these, I don't think I'll be buying all fifteen. Gotta give love to the blushes I already own! 



  1. these blushes are really cute! I love your blog..thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  2. Natural Beauty looks beautiful! I want it! I've really been wanting to try one of these blushes. I'm a NARS blush addict, but I find they don't have enough colours for my liking. Can't wait to pick this up. Great review and love swatches! :)

    1. I feel your pain. The NARS blush display always draws me in and distracts me. They do have some wild colors, like the red Exhibit A, that I'm way way too afraid to touch.

  3. I love blushes. I always have wanted to try this. But the price kills me!


    1. I know. I wish they weren't so expensive!

  4. Beautiful blushes!! I've been loving the color Dollface! The lasting power of these blushes is so great.

    1. I was actually eyeing Dollface when I picked up Charisma :)

  5. I need to get one :)
    nice post
