I love my coral blushes and this one is no exception. If you are looking for the perfect Coral with slight bits of pink you have to take a look at this one. I found it to be soft to intense depending on how you like it. Easy to apply with any blush brush and stays on for a very long time!

Have you tried any Tarte products? Let me know what you think below.

Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush
What it is:
A long-wearing, solar-baked blush that lasts up to 12 hours.

What it does:
Infused with natural clay harvested from the banks of the Amazon River and naturally baked by the sun, this nutrient-rich blush benefits all skin types for a fade-free flawless finish for an amazing 12 hours. Inspired by Tarte’s best-selling shades of cheek stains and lip tints, the colors range from soft to vivid to suit a wide variety of skintones. For oily skin types, Amazonian clay minimizes oil in and around pores to balance skin and keep product in place. Those with dry skin will benefit from the clay’s nourishing and hydrating properties, which naturally restore skin’s moisture. Combination skin types can rely on its ability to zero in on skin concerns and deliver benefits to restore complexion harmony. The result? Blush that wears better, longer, and truer!

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Synthetic Fragrances
– Petrochemicals
– Phthalates
– GMOs
– Triclosan

What else you need to know:
This blush features the following Skinvigorating™ ingredients:
– Vitamins A and E, two natural preservatives that act as anti-inflammatory emollients and protect against free radical damage
– Vitamin C, an antioxidant that fights free radical damage and prevents oxidative stress and premature signs of aging, while brightening the skin
– Amazonian clay, a nutrient-rich, multitasking, skin-balancing clay that reduces dryness and flakiness, improves skin clarity, elasticity, firmness, and texture while removing oil from the skin’s surface for smooth application and wear

Overall Thoughts

I love the solid pigmentation of this blush. If you have a heavy hand you might see too much color on your cheeks. Apply a light amount then build to the perfect shade you desire. If you have NARs Orgasm and are looking for something with less shimmer I recommend checking this one out. I can’t think of a blush that has the same denser powdery feel or intense coral. This one will work on almost any skin tones. I would say if you are fair, you might want to test it out in stores before you take the leap.


Use a little face power and mix with your blush to soften any blush to avoid any 80’s mishaps.
