I finally cracked. I've been drooling over the Tarte Amazonian Clay blushes since they released in March, and I decided I've waited long enough to try them. I grabbed Exposed (along with some others that will be in future posts), because it looked like a wonderful everyday neutral shade.
I really love the overall packaging of these. The actual cases are the same color as the blush inside, so you don't have to waste any time digging through compacts to find them (I'm looking at you, NARS!). I also love that the blush has the Amazon River in its design!
Exposed is matte, which I like because mattes are my favorite blushes. When you look at it in the pan, it looks pretty plain brown. However, when swatched, it takes on a bit of a plummy-berry hue, making it look less like a bronzer and more like a blush!
The pigmentation on this blush is incredible, and it goes on the skin really nicely. Here's a swatch!
Another cool feature with these blushes is something I don't hear a lot of people mention, but the pan is magnetic and pops right out of the compact! Perfect if you want to put it in a Z-Palette for a trip, or if you want to organize all of your Amazonian Clay blushes in one palette!
Overall, I am not disappointed at all with this purchase. Expect to see this blush pop up in more than its fair share of my videos! These blushes retail for $25 and can be purchased wherever Tarte cosmetics are sold! Right now, you can use the code GGD to get 15% off your entire purchase on TarteCosmetics.com, so if you're going to order online, do it through there!
