Tarte Peaceful Amazonian Clay Blush ($26) is described as a soft, nude-peach with slight shimmer. I’d consider it more of a medium rosy, coral-peach. When I’m a bit fairer, the color is more rosy, whereas when I’m more tan, the color is more vibrant and coral and pulls a bit orangey. With my warm, yellow undertones, most peach blushes turn somewhat orange on me (which isn’t particularly a bad thing). I wouldn’t consider it to be in the Nars Orgasm or MAC Springsheen family, although by the looks of it in the pan, it looks like it would be very pink-toned. That pink however deepens on the skin and gives more of a warm, rosy/flushed look.

I’m around the MAC NC30-NC35 coloring, and I like it on me. It’s a pretty Summery shade and livens up my complexion. If you can’t get enough peach blush, you might like this one. You have to make sure to use a light hand because the brush picks up quite a bit of product and it’s very pigmented and can get bright/intense quickly. A stippling brush may be your best bet for light application.

The formula is soft, a bit powdery and nice to work with. The Amazonian Clay is also meant to be hydrating (yet oil minimizing) and despite the powderiness, it looks dewy and hydrating on my face.

I love the colors in the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush range, but I’m not sold on them yet. After purchasing Exposed because of the huge hype, I only wore it a handful of times and it’s been sitting in my drawer ever since.

My main disappointment is that I don’t think these blushes are particularly long wearing. According to many reviews, many find that these last much longer on the skin than other blush brands, but I don’t really see it. I still have some fading after a few hours, and a light application is left by the end of the day – which is pretty average with most of my blushes. Exposed is usually completely gone by the end of the day.

I’d still like to give a couple more shades a shot, though. If you have any color recommendations from this line, let me know in the comments!

The Round-Up


  • Very pigmented
  • Blends really well
  • Sits well on the skin without looking powdery
  • Formulated with some wonderful ingredients including Vitamins A, E, C and Amazonian Clay, which is said to reduce dryness and improve skin clarity, elasticity and texture while removing oil from the skin’s surface for smooth application and wear.
  • Magnetized pans – you can pop them out easily and put them directly in a palette
  • Vegan – cruelty free


  • I wasn’t crazy about how this shade looks after several hours on my skin – it looks more orange than anything else
  • I don’t find that it lasts 12 hours, but it lasts well through the day with some fading

Price: $26, Tarte and Sephora.

  1. Try Glisten! It is gorgeous and its my favorite from these blushes 🙂 I don't find it long wearing like it claims but I think that has to do with my oiliness. However, from many blushes I've tried it is one of the longer wearing ones 🙂


  2. that blush color is really pretty! The only thing I don't like about tarte blushes is that some of the pink/prettiest colors have way too much shimmer


  3. I love this blush. I have the shade “Charisma” and love it. It's deinitely more of a spring/summer color, but it is one of my favorites, and lasts all day. I also love their Amazonian Clay Foundation in the liquid formulation. It has great full coverage that really does last all day. I just ordered the powder foundation, and I haven't decided if I like it better than the liquid version or not.


  4. i have one and i loooove it!!! makeup fades on my face fast but this lasts well for me! of course different formulas work better for different people :).
