The blush pan itself is fairly simple to pop out of the packaging (if you're one of those who prefer to put them in a Z palette). I also like that the outside packaging matches the blush shade that is in the pan. So you don't have to go rummaging through your makeup drawer reading the names on the bottom in order to find the shade you want. I will say, though, some of the shades you might be surprised when you apply them to the skin (compared to looking at the color in the pan). "Exposed" was one of those shades for me. It is a nude colored blush that does not look special at all when looking at it in the pan. I normally am not a "nude blush" type of girl, but when I applied it I was pleasantly surprised. It is so beautiful and I truly think it would look good on just about anyone.
As for the shades I currently own (swatches attached) I love every single one. From left to right : Fearless, blissful, paaarty, unstoppable, exposed.
Fearless: a very soft coralish pink
Blissful: warm peach
Paaarty: cool toned dusty pink beige
Unstoppable: peachy pink
Exposed:a surprisingly beautiful nude
I highly recommend tarte amazonian Clay blushes, whether it is one of the shades I mentioned or another one. They have so many different gorgeous shades to choose from and every single one of them looks appealing. They are on the more expensive side when it comes to blushes, but they are so worth it. One blush container (even if it's just the trial size) should last more than long enough to make the cost worth it. tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush
My only negative comment would be about the pigmentation (again could be because I only used my fingers) but I had to really swipe and swipe to pick up product. I think the price point is a little high but the product is nice.
Exposed is a pale brick shade that goes on a bit deep, but blends out nicely with a titch of powder. Paaarty is more rose-toned and light, but has enough of a color hit to work on my medium skin. It might be too subtle for olive or darker skin tones. Both shades seem to me that they would be universally flattering, and I'd like to try the other color options to see if they are, too.
Both 'exposed' and 'paaarty' last all day, and both give the impression of being completely natural, as if I were slightly flushed from a walk.
I would probably repurchase, but I'm not sure I'll ever run out!
Finally, thank you Tarte, for bringing us cruelty-free beauty that works!
The packaging is absolutely beautiful, and the color is stunning. This is a high-pigment blush, but it can be applied gently and built up if that's more your speed. These blend out very smoothly, and my favorite thing about them is that they last all day long on my oily skin. The only thing keeping me from giving a 5-star rating is their tendency to develop a film over the surface of the blush. This may just be because of my oily skin, but I don't have this problem with other face products that I try.
All in all, I think this is a beautiful blush formula, and I will definitely be picking up more shades.
I love this shade because it looks so natural on my skin- enough to give it some color but still natural looking. For reference, I'm pretty light with warm(ish) undertones.
It kind of makes me sad that I'm so in love with it because it costs so much more than my usual drugstore ones but it's just so good! So worth it!
These two, however, are my go-to's - very matte, lovely color, highly pigmented. As per usual with blushes, I take a brush and go for a really light hand - they're highly buildable and I find the formula sticks in for the rest of the day as long as I didn't wear a foundation with a lot of slippage. Paaarty is a nude that works perfectly if I'm not trying to amp up the pinks in my undertone - it's also my olive-skinned wife's go-to blush - and Natural Beauty is my favorite of the pinks. I def recommend.
