Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush - Tipsy


I had been having the hardest time deciding on a color from Tarte's not so new Amazonian clay blush line. Obviously Tipsy is right up my alley, I am known to have an obsession with this color family. However, I did want to branch out and get a shade which I normally don't. I mean how many peachy blushes does one need? Basically it came down to Tipsy and Blushing Bride, a beautiful plum. I gave in and chose the peach once again! Tipsy seemed to be a bit more versatile and appropriate for summer! I can always go back and get Blushing Bride for fall! :D


Tipsy is a stunning matte peachy-coral and is packed with pigmentation. I have swatched all the colors in this collection at Sephora and they are all equally pigmented. Just like with any pigmented blush I think it applies the best with a stippling brush that way there is just the right amount of color with the right intensity. In other words, it's a "a-little-goes-a-long-way" kind of product. Now, Tarte claims these Amazonian clay blushes last 12 hours. Does it live up to the claim? YES! I can't lie, even some of my most loved blushes do not last all day, I love them mostly only because of their pretty colors. This blush on the other hand lasts all day therefore doesn't require touch-ups. I don't know about you but my make-up bag is full as it is, there is just no room for another blush compact AND a brush.


Here's a look at the packaging; It comes neatly packaged in a plastic box.
  The compact is fun and girly. I like that the compact's color and blush color are coordinated. It's not a bulky compact and comes with a mirror so it makes a good take-along product.

Other things to note:
This product is cruelty-free.
It is formulated without; mineral oil, parabens, petrolatum, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate and synthetic fragrance.

Tarte's Amazonian clay blushes retail for $25/5.6oz. They used to be Sephora-exclusive up until a week or so ago however these days they are conveniently available on Tarte's website and Ulta as well. I purchased mine on their website using the code LUCKYBREAKS1 (30% off) to save a couple of bucks :)

Verdict?
I love Tipsy. It's totally my kind of blush but I'd be lying if I said I am not occasionally daydreaming about Blushing Bride. I may slowly collect all the colors in this collection, they are so charming and pretty to look at! I think they are seriously of amazing quality, formulated without many of the harsh chemicals and the lasting power is just unbeatable!

What do you think about Tarte's Amazonian clay blushes?

  2. Tipsy is right up my alley for blush colours. I have a sample of this for now, may buy the full size, but I am content for now. I have a lot of orange/peach blushes as it is. :)

    I have this blush in "Natural Beauty," but "Tipsy" really seems like the must have shade! I think I'll need to cave and pick it up at some point, it's absolutely beautiful! I love that your swatches show that it's more than just coral/orange, but there is also a nice pink undertone.

  19. 30% is a good reason for me to try out Tipsy & Exposed! I think I'm looking forward to Exposed more because I haven't seen as much written about it - should be more of a surprise!

  24. The orange is back this summer and so the blush really looks appropriate for use.The packaging is super and also the tone...definitely it has to suit the facial tone of the user.

  25. So jealous! I really want to try these blushes but I don't think I can get them anywhere in the UK xx

  26. I am so happy orange is back, I love this color! :) I think Tarte did a great job offering various shades that will suit many different skin tones.

  27. I think they are great! It's so unfair that you guys don't have a Sephora there :/ Have you checked to see if you can order from their website? I hope you'll be able to find them somewhere soon :)

  28. Oh I saw tipsy while I was at Ulta the other day. I love coral blushes? Do you have a favorite coral blush?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Finally Ulta carries them too! :) I love them too but I don't really own coral blushes, I tend to lean more towards peaches when it comes to blushes. I guess Tipsy is my first true coral blush ;)

  30. Tipsy is my currently my favorite blush. I am a new reader to you blog, and I appreciate your dedication to finding natural products. This is not an easy task if you want quality make up, and I think Tarte totally nailed it. I plan on picking up another shade or two as well.

  31. That's great! It quickly became one of my favorite blushes. Tarte has done such an amazing job with the Amazonian clay line, totally agreed! I try my best to find natural products and while it's not always possible due to many companies continuing to use harsh chemicals in their products, it's great to know and to be able to find gorgeous AND healthier goodies from brands like Tarte :)
