Today we present you an Amazonian wonder suitable for all skin types. It provides a flawless finish in shades that range from soft to vivid and matte to shimmer, covering most skin tones. Enough with the suspense. We are talking about Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush.
This is a long-lasting, incredibly soft blush infused with Amazonian clay. Yes, you read that right. The formula includes clay collected from the banks of the mythic Amazon river, naturally sun-dried. The loveliest way to add a bit of wilderness to our everyday routines.
Before you start worrying about the word ‘clay’, relax. It blends fine and the result is natural, though well pigmented. We found no signs of chalkiness even in matte tones. You’ll simply be adding natural brightness and color to your cheeks, so much that you can build on it without fearing to be too heavy-hand. Moreover, it worked fine with all the foundations and powders that we had nearby.
Using a powder brush, we tried a comprehensive lot of colors: Blissful (matte warm peach), Blushing Bride (Rosy Pink), Dollface (matte light pink), Glisten (shimmering peachy pink), Dazzled (shimmering soft rose). For a moderate dimensional shimmer, we suggest Glisten, Dazzled or Peaceful.
The not-so-secret ingredient in this product – Amazonian clay – minimizes oil production in and around pores, at the same time it pushes your skin to naturally moisture. Farewell dry, flaky skin. Hello, balanced skin! Sounds too good the be true? We should thank Mother Nature for making this possible.
