Whenever I hear that Tarte is releasing a new shade of their amazing Amazonian Clay Blush formula my ears instantly perk up. This time, however, they are not just releasing a new shade of blush, but also a new LipSurgence and Maracuja Divine Shine Lipgloss in a brand new set.

This set of shades is named for an actual tree that comes from the tropical regions of North and South America, the Achiote.

Nicknamed “the Lipstick Tree” because Native Americans used the Achiote to make body and lip paint. Who knew? Tarte is bringing that ancient coloring agent to all of us in their natural line up and the truth is I couldn’t be happier about the pairing!

Swatches L-R: Maracuja Divine Shine Gloss, LipSurgence Lip Luster, Amazonian Clay Blush

It’s a gorgeous reddened peach- a guava. All three are nicely pigmented and work well in conjunction with each other. I have reviewed all of these formulas before but in case you didn’t know, the clay blushes rank in my top echelon of blush formulas for their wear time and pigmentation and the LipSurgence Lip Lusters are a great balmy lip color. The gloss isn’t sticky but provides solid wear time and a nice shine.

I also thought I’d show what the Achiote blush looks like compared to other shades in the Amazonian Clay line:

Clockwise from left: Charisma, Achiote, Blissful

Charisma is more pink and contains shimmer while Blissful is matte and also more pink. Achiote has a more reddened tone than the other two.

This set is a fun addition to anyone’s collection, particularly if you love Tarte’s all natural and cruelty-free approach. The color is universally flattering and can be worn more heavily or sheered out depending our your skin tone. The set retails for $42 and can be found at Sephora or on Tarte’s website.

  1. Aww thank you lipstick tree, for such a cute set! Despite the fact that Tarte blushes don’t last 12 hours on me, I still love the texture and colors to bits. I haven’t tried their lip products yet, but you look so gorgeous I feel that I NEED some!

  2. Ooh I’m feeling that this may be my 5th LipSurgence…

  13. Tarte is marked up so ridiculously here in Canada that I just don’t even look at them. Love these colours though! LOVE!

  15. Tiffany says:

    The color is gorgeous and as soon as you described it as guava, I was sold! I need that blush! I wish it was sold separately though 🙁

  16. Toya says:

    I can’t wear any of these products because they contain lanolin (well, I know for sure the blush does, and some of the lip products do), which makes me so sad 🙁 This shade looks lovely, a guava – ah that just SOUNDS Summery and pretty! They all go really well with your skintone too Danielle!
