It’s hump day! We have made it through half of the week! Soo, a couple of weeks ago I stopped in to Sephora just to pick up their fabulous false eyelash applicator (you can find it here) and I saw the new Tarte display with the Amazonian Clay Blush on it. I swatched one or two of the shades at the time and was highly impressed with not just the pigmentation, but the velvety smoooooth way it swatched on my skin. I didn’t pick any up that day, but this past week I found myself back at Sephora, and picked up two shades, Flush and Tipsy. Let me just say, I AM IN LOVE with these blushes. I have Amused and Natural Beauty on my wish list next. I also went ahead and ordered the QVC set that includes a QVC exclusive shade found here (you can see swatches of that set on Musings of a Muse). Tarte is really impressing me lately. I am not a fan of their cheek stains and I think they are overhyped. They make work for some people, but they just slip and slide on my skin with very little color payoff. These are the antithesis of the cheek stains! Check out the swatches!
These blushes blend so easily and I have worn each color for a whole day and they did indeed last. I am going to test them for wear some more, but I don’t expect to experience any issues. The application is flawless. As you can see, they are not shimmery, but they have a unique lit-from-within type of effect on my cheeks. I like these better than my NARS blushes, and are quite possibly the most favorite blushes I own. A side note- Tipsy is an almost dead-on dupe for MACs LE blush ombre in Ripe Peach. If you weren’t able to snag that when it was released, I would pick up this blush!
See how close those are?! In person, I cannot see the difference, but on camera they look just ever so slightly different. You can see Tipsy on the lovely Tiffany on her blog Will Work For Makeup. These blushes retail for $25 a piece available now at Sephora.
Will you be hauling any of these?
