Hey everyone! Today I'm going to be reviewing the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in "Dollface." These blushes got a lot of hype when they first came out in March of last year. There is still a lot of hype about this product, several magazines and sites said it was one of the best blushes of 2011! I totally agree with them!
The blush that I'm reviewing is called "Dollface", it a nice light matte pink. I think this blush would look good on anyone from fair-medium skin. This is a great everyday blush since the pink is so light. Of course you could build it up to make it a little darker.
Since this is an Amazonian Clay Blush it has the amazon river it the middle of the blush. I have used this blush so much you cant really see it, but you can still see it a little.
Tarte says this blush will help all skin types. For oily skin types it will help minimize oil in and around porse to balance skin and keep product in place. For dry skin this blush will nourish and hydrate. Lastly for combination skin types it will zero in on skin concerns and deliver benefits to help restore complexion.
I have normal to dry skin and I have not seen any benefits from using this blush. But then again you will probably have to use this blush everyday for 6-8weeks. Since I have not been using this blush that long I don't know for sure about the skin benefits.
Tarte also claims this blush will last 12 hours. For me it lasts about 8-10 hours, that's still pretty good for the staying power. The staying power could be different for other people but I would say this will last you for sure 6-10 hours.
The pan also comes out of the little container. The container has a little magnet in the inside, but the blush pan does not have a magnet. If you wanted to put the blush pan in an empty palette for traveling or whatever you want, you could stick a magnet on the back of the pan.
Here are some swatches...
Here is the blush on my cheeks

So as you can see this blush is gorgeous! If I was rating this blush out of 10 I would give it a 9/10. The only reason this blush lost a point is because Tarte claims it wears 12 hours but it actually isn't that long
(8-10 hours). I think the pigmentation is great and the packaging is adorable!
All in all its a great blush! This Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes cost $25.00, and you can buy them at Sephora, Tarte, Ulta, or Amazon. These blushes come in 12 different shades, so I'm sure there will be a shade you like!
I hope you enjoyed this review and thought is was helpful! I'm for sure going to get more colors in the future! Now I'm wondering, do you like these blushes? Do you have any of the Tarte blushes? Are you going to buy any of these blushes in the future? Leave a comment down below!
