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:
- Synthetic Fragrances
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.
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 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 )

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
