It’s finally time for the third Tarte blush review. For those of you who have missed it, a while ago I purchased a gift set by Tarte filled with four blushes. Last week and the week before that I already reviewed two of the blushes (and the brush that comes with it) and today it’s time for the next review. This time I’m reviewing a gorgeous and fun colour called Vibrant. If you’re interested in finding out more about it, make sure you continue reading!
I don’t even think it’s necessary anymore to discuss the packaging of this blush since I’ve done that in the reviews of the other blushes too, but for those of you who haven’t read those, let’s quickly go over it again. The packaging is small, round and made of plastic in a colour that matches the colour of the blush. On top of the lid you’ll find a sticker with a cute design on it which makes it look a little more exciting and special.
So, now we have discussed that, let’s move onto the other part of the review. The part where we’re going to discuss the colour of this blush, the texture, the quality and all that kind of fun stuff.
Like I mentioned before, this is the third blush out of this set I’m reviewing. It’s in the shade Vibrant and it’s a very pretty peachy shade. It looks quite bright in the pan, but it’s definitely not a colour you have to be scared of. Once applied it will make your cheeks look fresh, awake and healthy. Just the look I’m going for!
The thing I like about peachy blushes is that they look good on literally everybody. No matter what skin tone you’re rocking, no matter what undertone you have, this will look good. I know I say things like that a lot, but it’s just something I think is important.
Quality wise these Tarte blushes haven’t been disappointing at all. I have to say that some are better than others, but overall I am not disappointed. One of the things I love most about them is the texture. Tarte works with their famous amazonian clay formula which makes these blushes just a little different from your regular blush when it comes to texture. It’s just a little more soft, smooth and slightly more buttery. Not in a cream blush kinda way, but in a buttery powder kinda way (if that makes any sense).
Pigmentation wise this is one of the better blushes out of the four I got. It’s very pigmented and opaque. It’s definitely a blush you don’t want to be too heavy handed with. I have to admit that I usually prefer going for slightly less pigmented blushes so I won’t go too crazy with them too quickly, but in this case I like the amount of pigment. You don’t HAVE to build it up. Of course you can do that if you want, but you don’t have to and that just saves a lot of time.
When it comes to staying power I’m not going to lie. No it won’t stay in place all day, but it will stay in place for a good couple of hours, more than a regular blush would. It obviously depends on how much you apply in the first place and how often you touch your cheeks, but it definitely stays in place pretty well.
Overall I think this is quite an amazing blush. I really like the colour, it makes my complexion look fresh and awake, the texture is really nice and the pigmentation is great as well. It’s a very easy blush to work with and that’s always a very big plus for me. If you’re on the hunt for a good, versatile blush, you might want to check this one out!
This Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush is part of their Holiday set which is available here for £34.50.
