HG blush! This is my favorite blush to wear with bold red lips of any shade. If I was flush with money, I'd buy it in every color! Yes, it's SUPER pigmented [a good thing!] so apply with caution. If you apply too much, just dust some powder on top. It lasts all day and I never even have to think about looking dull. LIFE CHANGER.
Love this blush! As others have said, this is a bright and vibrant reddish pink color.. You have to use a delicate hand and sometimes I have to take a little off or blend it more to get it to blend and look more natural with my tan olive skin. However, the color is such a beautiful and fresh color I just love it. Looks great in photos as well with some light pink gloss. I love tarte Amazonian Clay colors! I have this and blissful and I still would love more!
not for the faint of heart. this is a bright, bold, vibrant blush. it is super pigmented, so a lighter hand may be required (especially for fairer gals like me ~ think MAC NC20 and lighter). trust me, a little goes a long way. however, it is also surprisingly natural instead of garish. despite it being a bright, pinky-red (it does look a little intimidating in the pan), it actually comes off as a quite natural flush on the cheeks. it isn't quite the 'oh, this is me naturally blushing' sort of colour (there is no such thing as shy and demure with this shade), but it gives your cheeks the sort of flush it gets when you've just come in from the cold or when your cheeks are very heated. this is gorgeous for replicating that sort of 'in from the cold' look, and i love it for when i want a bright and vibrant flush. and yes, you can wear this with red lipstick, but you'll definitely want to tone down on the eye makeup.
SO beautiful and flattering! It definitely gives you a healthy glow. I am so glad I started using tarte, their colors seem to just be natural and beautiful.
GORGEOUS bright red/pink blush. incredibly pigmented. Seriously, remember to tap your blush off before applying. This stuff stays forever, and the packaging is so darn adorable. It is bright, so make sure you can handle it!! Looks fantastic on pale skin.
I was perusing Sephora looking for the perfect red blush for my milk chocolate skin (w/ gold undertones) NARS is my HG blush brand so I already had Nars Exhibit A (while lovely) but it is way more orange than red on my skin. I wanted a true red. The SA suggested this . . . well, in the pan it looks pink and obviously not as red as I "thought" i was seeking. After trying it out, it proved to be a lovely pink-red that looks more red than pink giving my skin this subtle reddish glow without looking too intense. And the more I build it the redder it looks, still without becoming "clown-red" . . . not that that is bad if it works for you. But I wanted a red that I could comfortable pull off at work with a red outfit and/or red lipstick. This does it!!! Plus the AC line of Tarte is great for my oily acne-prone skin . . . I've since added a couple other colors to my collection.
Probably the most gorgeous, flattering blush I own. So pigmented and one sweep of my fluffy blush brush gives me the prettiest rosy glow, like what I imagine Snow White's cheeks to look like. I love this so much! It's never irritated my skin and blends really well with a light hand. And I think this could work on anyone's skin tone, since it shows up so well and it could skew cool or warm depending on the person. It goes a little warm on my, like a pink-ish strawberry red color, and it's lovely! I wear this a lot.
I love this blush, the color is just beautiful for the winter and gives this healthy glow to my face. it is hard to blend but what i like about it that it will last me forever.
UPDATE! when i got home i realized that my other Tarte blush in FRISKY looks very similar is like a very warm red-pinky-coral color altogether and + it has light golden shimmer which isn't noticeable at all. Natural beauty a very nice color but looks flat on my cheeks where Frisky looks a litlle softer, so i decided to return first one.They are very similar when you swatch them on your hand and on the cheeks you would't see the difference at all because they look exactly the same, but for me Frisky is more of a unique color so i'm keeping it.
I love this blush! I was using Nars Orgasm for awhile but wanted to give this one a shot ... and now that this one is in my makeup bag, I practically never use Orgasm anymore! (the only reason I come back to it from time to time is because I'm continuously reading about its popularity among movie stars, beauty editors, professional make-up artists, friends, etc.)
I prefer Natural Beauty over Orgasm because it goes on SO pinky red, it's very pigmented. People say Orgasm is very pigmented but I found, even though I'm fair-ish, that Orgasm doesn't look very pronounced on me.
The only issue I had at first with this blush is that I would put on too much and have to work on blending or wiping some off with tissue. I know how to apply it now, but sometimes it still goes on too red or makes a minor redness on my cheek (not quite a pimple, just a red spot) stand out wayyy too much.
But I do love this blush and it's lasting forever!
I am a very fair (Graftobian Nymph which is basically paper white ;) and I love this blush!
Package -- I think it is great. I like the color of it because it makes it easy to find in my makeup bag.
Application-- Even though this is a powder, it really acts like a stain. Be really careful when putting it on because it is sooooo pigmented that a little will do both cheeks. Once it is on, it stays there!
Finish -- Unless you put on too much, this has an incredible natural finish! There is a bit of shimmer, but you just look gleaming, not shimmery.
Staying power -- I think ti goes way longer than 12 hours!
I am going to buy Tarte Blushes in many different colors!! I love it!!
Bottom line -- if your thinking about it, just get it!!
