Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 – hour Dollface blush

As a blush addict I have been longing to get my hands on Tarte Amazonian clay blush. I spent ages trying to decide which shade to get and after reading millions of reviews I decided on Dollface. Dollface is a light cool blue toned pink. It looks quite bright in the pan but swatches as a cool yet natural looking pink. It is a beautiful light pink without looking at all clownish. 

 

The blush in the pan quite hard, it will without doubt withstand a bit of a beating. It’s great to have a blush you dont have to worry about it breaking. Although appearing tightly pressed, it’s easy to pick up on a brush. Don’t be deceived into thinking you need a lot of swirling of the brush to pick up any product as you really don’t need much product due to its pigmentation. The pan will last you forever. I have been using this constantly and haven’t even made a mark on it.

 

Even though its hard in the pan, it feels so soft on the skin. The texture is beautiful and feels like it almost melts into the skin, which makes it perfect for blending. I was really surprised at how it feels, hard yet it can feel so buttery on the skin. I’m guessing this is down to the added clay.

The packaging is gorgeous and comes in the shade of the blush inside which I think is a really cute idea. It also comes with a large mirror which I’m always thankful for.

I love a light pink blush but find they often fade quicker than most shades. So dollface is the perfect shade to try out Tarte’s 12 hour claim. I wouldnt say its fade free but it does leave a long lasting colour almost tinting or staining the skin. It lasts 8 hours without fading but the stain lasts about 10 hours. Which although not the full 12 hours it still is really impressive.

I really think it will be flattering for all skintones, but especially on paler skins as it gives a pretty flushed look. It is really buildable so you can layer it up to make it work for you although on darker skin tones it will come across as a much subtler shade.

Have you tried any Tarte Products? Do you own any similar shades? What blush are you loving at the moment?

Lots of Love,
