Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Tipsy Review and Swatches

Hello pretties here is my Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Tipsy Review and Swatches!

These solar-baked blushes are infused with Amazonian Clay, nature’s most perfect ingredient. These nutrient rich and skin-nourishing Amazonian clay blushes restore harmony for a flawless finish that lasts all day.

Solar-baked. Ah.

Tarte is a US cosmetics brand focusing on natural and organic beauty products that are eco-friendly and cruelty-free. Not available in Australia, Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blushes ($25 USD) are the stuff of beauty blogger folklore. If there were such a thing. I literally want every colour (I started to type each colour I wanted, and realised I wasn’t skipping any), but I started off with Tipsy, a matte coral. Delightfully (small things), the package is colour-coordinated to the blush:

The blush pan itself is embossed with a picture of what I’m going to go ahead and guess is the Amazon River. See what they did there? (But seriously, see what they did there. Gorgeous. You please me, Tarte):


Tipsy is now one of my favourite blushes. It is in heavy rotation right now. Tipsy‘s buttery, pigmented, long-wearing, and bright coral (I’m laughing in the face of ‘seasonal’ makeup by wearing the shit out of this in the dead of Winter.) Now, I’m no scientist, but I’m not feeling Tarte’s assertion that the Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blushes are sort of made of… magic. They’re all, if your skin’s oily, it totally absorbs your oil, but if your skin’s dry, it totally hydrates your cheeks. Really? Whatever, your blush is pretty.

I don’t have a lot of coral blushes, but I swatched Tipsy next to MAC Cremeblend Blush in Something Special (which is pinker and more muted) and Milani Baked Blush in Corallina (which is much less pink):
