Amazing Amazon: New Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush Shades for Spring!

Blush lovers rejoice! Tarte has released 4 new shades of their Amazonian Clay line and I couldn’t be happier!

As you know, these blushes stole the top spot for best blush of 2011, and for good reason. The formula is amazing; it lasts well throughout the day, blends easily on the skin and comes in a variety of lovely shades.

Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Blushes retail for $25 for .20 oz and are formulated without:

  •  Parabens
  • Sulfates
  • Synthetic Fragrances
  • Petrochemicals
  • Phthalates
  • GMOs
  • Triclosan

The four new shades are:

  • Frisky- Shimmering light coral
  • Glisten- Shimmering peachy pink (previously included in a QVC set)
  • Buff- Shimmering nude
  • Adored- Shimmering light pink (previously included in a set from Sephora I believe)

I already owned Glisten and Adored from the previous releases and here are side-by-side in the pan photos of how the two releases compare:

Old Glisten vs New Glisten: In person, they seem pretty identical. My old one just shows wear vs being perfectly in tact.

New Adored vs Old Adored: The packaging color changed, and the new one seems to be a slight bit brighter. I can’t tell if the color of the packaging is just throwing my judgment or if they are indeed different. If there is a difference, it is slight, the new Adored being slightly brighter than the old version.

Tarte Frisky

Natural Beauty vs Frisky: I also thought you might be wondering (as I did) how does Natural Beauty compare to Frisky? Are they same except one has sparkles? I say no. Frisky is more pink/peach and Natural Beauty has more red.

Tarte Buff

Tarte Buff vs Exposed: I also figured the same about Buff and Exposed. Buff is definitely more brown/tan than the pink toned Exposed. Both are flattering on my skin tone, but this gives others more options when it comes to a nude blush from this line. 

Swatches with flash L-R: Glisten, Buff, Adored, Frisky

(I used my old Glisten and Adored for theses swatches…maybe a giveaway in the near future ;) )

Swatches in natural light L-R: Glisten, Buff, Adored, Frisky

Wearing Tarte Frisky lightly on Cheek, Tarte Maracuja Divine Shine gloss in Natural Beauty, Tarte Amazonian Clay liner in Rich Green, Bare Minerals Ready Shadow Scenic Route duo

Wearing Buff on Cheek, same items as above.

Initially the sparkle in both Buff and Frisky made me a little apprehensive, but as you can see on the cheeks they look natural and are not even close to approaching disco ball territory. I am pleased that all of the blushes have the same high quality and longevity of the previously released shades.

You can find the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes at Sephora, Ulta, QVC and TarteCosmetics.com. Not all of the shades are available everywhere. It appears that Ulta carries Adored and Glisten but not Buff or Frisky (yet) but Sephora has the entire line available.

Will you be indulging in some new blush for spring? I highly recommend you check these shades out, you won’t be disappointed :)

  1. Goodness, Frisky is a stunner!

  2. OH GOD, MORE BLUSH. I need another one like I need a nail in the head, but I can’t seem to stop.

    I’m still working on collecting the original round. Will get to these babies later!

  3. Rai says:

    I thought I would like Buff more than Exposed but I don’t. I think I’ll get Frisky!

  4. Kayla says:

    I was waiting for you to post a comparison on these, you’re my Amazonian Clay Blush guru! xD I really love Buff. Can’t wait to get my hands on these!

  5. Jessica says:

    These are stunning! I’m wondering how I only own two? I definitely think I’ll have to pick up Glisten, it’s a perfect every day blush.

    ♥ Jessica

  6. Brooke says:

    I needs Glisten and Buff! Love love love!

    • Danielle says:

      Yes YOU DO! Glisten is gorgeous and Buff is so neutral like you aren’t wearing anything but it adds nice cheek definition!

  7. I have Glisten from that QVC set and I took that with me to Europe as it lasts all day long. If I could buy blush right now, I’d be getting Frisky NOW. :)

    • Danielle says:

      Oh, I hear you. But the good news is that these are permanent so no limited edition rush out and buy it craziness. :)

  8. Larie says:

    Yep, add me as another vote for Frisky :P

  9. annie says:

    Beautiful! Thank you for the comparison shots. I was wondering how close Buff would be to Exposed. I love my Expose but Buff seems like a need in my collection as well!

    • Danielle says:

      You’re welcome Annie! I had the same question myself so I knew others must have wondered as well :) Buff is really nice, you will enjoy it.

  10. Dovey says:

    I think Adored would be my favorite— though buff seems to be a nice contour/blush shade too

    • Danielle says:

      Adored is going to be great for spring, and I really do enjoy Buff. it just gives my cheeks a little bit of life without looking like I have any blush or bronzer on. :)

  11. isabella says:

    ooooh pretty! although i’m secretly glad they have sparkles since it makes it easier for me to skip them ^^”

    • Danielle says:

      Ah, but the sparkles are more apparent in the pan and swatch than on the face…but I totally get not wanting to look like a disco ball either! ;)

  12. Victoria says:

    I saw that email with the new releases and was SOOOO excited! Frisky looks amaaaazzing I want it now! :D Love all of these and so glad they’re expanding the range I need more!

  13. Emi says:

    I’m so glad you compared Frisky to Natural Beauty – I was wondering how they stacked up! It’s like you read my mind :)

  14. Miss LV says:

    I just bought Frisky at Sephora today. Can’t wait to wear it this weekend!

  17. Meg says:

    I’ve so far avoided buying these Tarte blushes, but I can’t do it anymore. These are absolutely gorgeous! Frisky is calling my name!

  18. Kristi says:

    Hmmm, thinking Adored & Glisten would both be good additions! Thanks for the swatches & comparison pics!

  19. Jacquelyn says:

    I must own Frisky!!!!! It looks gorgeous!!!
