My Experience with Tarte Classic Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush:

The Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in “Classic” comes in a circular, good quality plastic pan which houses the Amazonian clay blush. The outer color of the pan matches the shade of the blush inside. There is no applicator or mirror provided and I am perfectly fine with it as I refer using my own blush brush and makeup mirror.  Description can be found at the bottom of the pan. Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush is extremely lightweight and closes tightly, which makes it a travel-friendly blush.

Previously, I had reviewed the shade “Daydream” from Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush range and now I have got the shade Classic.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush Classic is an adorable peach color and looks like a very neutral shade. It looks very natural when applied and can enhance your natural flush on cheeks when paired with peach, red or n*de lip colors. It gives a natural blushing flush to the cheeks. It is a perfect day wear/office wear blush with a matte finish. The shade is not chalky though talc is the main ingredient of the blush.

The pigmentation is really good, one swipe and it blends effortlessly. There are no streaks no matter if you are in a hurry; it applies just flawlessly. There is no accentuation of pores or creasing into the fine lines with the blush.

The texture is soft, velvety, and smooth that your fingers would want to swipe it again and again. There is no fallout in the pan; the blush is well compacted. The longevity is impressive and it keeps my cheeks flushing with natural blush for 6-7 hours at average with just a foundation or BB cream underneath.  The shade will suit fair and medium skin tones. Infused with Amazonian clay benefits and also considering that it is free of parabens, the product is suitable for all skin types.

  1. It is a very beautiful blush Sumera. Its packaging and shade are just so gorgeous. I love anything that reduces the appearance of pores and dry skin. 🙂
