I was really interested in these Tarte blushes when I first heard about them. They are long-wearing, solar-baked blushes that are supposed to last up to 12 hours. I swatched all these while I was Sephora and I have to say that they all were extremely pigmented and very smooth to the touch. I was first going to get a bright pink like the one pictured above, but decided to go the other route with the nude blush they had.
Here is some more info on this Tarte Blush:
This blush features the following Skinvigorating™ ingredients:
- Vitamins A and E, two natural preservatives that act as anti-inflammatory emollients and protect against free radical damage
- Vitamin C, an antioxidant that fights free radical damage and prevents oxidative stress and premature signs of aging, while brightening the skin
- Amazonian clay, a nutrient-rich, multitasking, skin-balancing clay that reduces dryness and flakiness, improves skin clarity, elasticity, firmness, and texture while removing oil from the skin's surface for smooth application and wear.
Now, the first thing I wanted to test out was the wear of this blush. 12-Hour blush.. Did it really last 12 hours? I put this blush on at 8am and and it seriously lasted until 10pm when I washed it off. That was 14 hours and it didn't fade at all. Actually when I wear blush I have never had a blush fade. I don't know if has to do with skin type, but when I wear blush it stays until I take it off at night. Do you have a problem with blush fading? I'm more curious now about this.
Moving on... I was trying to swatch this blush but it just wasn't showing up on my hand since it's Nude. So I apologize for no swatch. But it is a really pretty nude beige blush that I can really wear everyday with no problems.
This Tarte blush goes for $25 at Sephora.
