Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush – Review

Tarte is by far a huge favourite of mine in the eyeshadow department. So will their Amazonian Clay Blush perform as well as their shadows?

I was super happy to see this little gem hidden away in my giveaway winners box. I have never tried anything else from their range so this was a nice surprise.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in ‘Paaarty’, a nude blushing pink, one ofΒ  17 spectacular shades available

Tarte Says (available at Sephora)

This nutrient-rich blush benefits all skin types for a fade-free flawless finish that lasts an amazing 12 hours.

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.


I used a tulip brush to apply and apply I did. A little too much! Some pressed powder over the top to took it down a notch and I avoided looking like an overheated mess. It’s very pigmented, I like it.

6 hours of wear
Paaarty brings just enough flush to the face

Lasting Power

As Tarte claims above it, “wears better, longer and truer” for combination skin.

  • I decided to wear this on a very hot, 30Β°C/86Β°F day and the above pictures were taken after 6 hours of wear
  • I can still see the colour coming through in the photos
  • I was happy that none of my sweat and oils had broken down the powder

I really enjoyed this blush and seeing as I only have another two, I will be using this more often. This Amazonian Clay Powder Blush is smooth, easy to apply and shows up well on my skin tone.
