I him-hawed around in getting this, seemingly forever. Always would google around for dupes. Finally swatched it on my cheeks one day at Ulta. I finally saw what the buzz was about. It is like a healthy, natural blush that comes from within. I agree it is pretty versatile and would work with many other makeup shades. I have found the Tarte Amazonian clay blushes to last forever. I have one of the 'sample' sizes of Dollface Pink that is getting pretty old and I've used time and again and looks like hardly a dent was made. Exposed wears beautifully and does not turn weird colors. Would re-purchase again, but as I said, these tend to last frever, so it will probably be a while. ;)
I really did like the shade but I was not a fan of the consistency. It was too hard, not soft and pigmented like I prefer. As a result, I had to swirl my brush around a lot to get some color, and I had already hit pan after only a month or so. There are better blushes, most for cheaper, too.
HG blush right here. I use it as a blush/bronzer hybrid by sweeping it under the apples of my cheeks. It looks natural, lasts all day, and blends beautifully with your skin/foundation. Will buy this forever.
I love Tarte blushes. A few years ago when my skin had a cesspool of oil on it, these were the things that lasted all day on my cheeks. Now that my skin is normal I can end my day with these still on my cheeks when I go to remove makeup. Exposed was a color that I saw a blogger/youtuber recommend. Being mindless back that I immediately ran and bought it... because I am clearly a follower. I wore it.. I liked it..it lasted forever. I didn't know I loved it until it finally ran out. I started using MAC blushes in my arsenal and noticed that they wore off my skin after a few hours. I also noticed how much I missed the color Exposed. It is just so flattering on my Light/Medium skin.
Great blush for every day wear! Itís a pinky-nude that I think would look great on anyone and stays all day. Tarteís blushes are so great for wear time.
The only complaint I have with this one is you have to swirl your brush way more on this than anything else from their blush line. The pigment isn't the same. The color however is amazing and it stays put.
This is one blush that you wonít pick up too much with. Itís a fairly safe blush that will build in color as you apply.
The cheek stain in exposed is 10000 times better at ulta right now for 34$ you get full size check stain lip gloss and pure pigment and deluxe blush sample all same color I would def recommend this deal its great but seriously the cheek stain is gorgeous its got that little something extra (pink) that the normal blush does not have but ts just right not too much im not reallya blush person just started getting into blush.....still prefer my milani blushes over ANY high end blush js
I used this blush a few times and just thought it was ok. Left in my drawer for months until I wanted to wear my red lipsticks and was looking for a blush to match. This is the perfect blush for that. It is beautiful without being too much for a bright lip. This stays all day. It's one of my favorites now!
I use the real techniques multi task brush and it works great.
I only use one type of blush: matte and inconspicuous. If you're looking for a pretty, long-wearing, natural looking blush, it doesn't get much better than this.
For $26, I expect a better product. Way too hard to work with, pickup is terrible. Color is good, even pretty-when you can get it on the brush! Color doesn't wear well. Even lightly dusted with translucent powder, maybe made it 4-5 hours in Southern humidity.
I kinda feel like smacking my own face, but only kinda.
It's pretty. Ya, pretty. For some odd reason I was expecting rainbows, unicorns, and every man to dramatically fall to my feet when worn.
Ya, you can rock this with any look, minimal , dramatic, fierce lips , no lips whatev. It's JUST pretty.
If this were 5.99 , then and ONLY then would I be on cloud 9 staring at that unicorn.
I get a weird upset feeling handing over 1.10$ to the dude behind the window at Mickey D's for a 4 piece chicken McNugget, so imaging the feeling handing 30 sum bucks to the lady behind the counter (that doesn't even want to be there) for a pretty blush.
I couldn't care less about packaging ,smell all that Shizuoka. If it performs great and the cost is even better, I wouldn't care if it was gold you had , I don't need it.
But... If the makeup addict In me needs to drop a bit more money for something it better we'll be worth it.
The blush itself Is hard , but workable, didn't blend flawlessly, but somewhat ,nice pink/ mauve brown, I'm sure there's more.
