Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed

I'm definitely not one of those girls who can have only one or two blushes. I like to wear blushes depending on my mood/outfit/weather/etc. Since autumn has just begun, I figured it was time to set aside my summer colors and look for a few new ones for fall and winter. 

I'm not sure about anyone else but I'm definitely embracing the dark lip trend this F/W so I wanted a few blushes that would be subtle and work with the dark plums and dusty roses. Exposed is one of those blushes. It's actually described as "nude" which isn't really true — it's more of a rose than nude but it's still perfect and exactly what I was looking for. It gives me a nice, soft flush of color as if I had just walked in from the cold (I wish, it's so warm here lately). 

As for the 12 hour claim, I don't think it lasts that long but it does last at least 8 hours on my normal skin. This is my first Tarte purchase and I'm sure it won't be my last. I'm really impressed with how wonderful this blush is to apply and wear — and the packaging is adorable! If you're looking for a more delicate looking shade to go along with dark or deep lipstick, you really can't go wrong with this one. 

What do you guys think of Tarte products? Have you tried their Amazonian 12-hour blush?


  1. I've been looking for a good blush, so I gotta give this a try. Plus you look stunning.


  2. It looks so pretty! Wish we could get Tarte products in the UK


  3. Hi, cute pics!

    I just followed you on friend connect,

    Would love if you could do the same


  4. This is a lovely colour, I expected it to be a lot darker because of the colour of the pan but it's gorgeous. Wish we got Tarte over here, I'd like to try the blush in Tipsy.
