Amused is the PERFECT "just came in out of the cold" pink. I have tremendous issues with blushes turning orange/brown on my beige skin tone however, have NEVER had an issue with this one. I honestly thought it would be too light just looking at the pan but like the other Tarte shades, it only takes a light touch to look natural - like a flush from within. This lasts ALL day without any oxidation at all. My new HG!!!!!
Very scary at first, b/c it's sucha bright pink, but it looks very pretty. Amused is a matte hot pink on the cheeks. Gives a nice "flushed" glowing appearance. Apply with a 187 lightly, or else you'll look like a clown. It's very pigmented, last LONG even with my oily skin, and doesn't magnify my pores like some Mac blushes do. I wear it to work, and work an 8 shift and the blush stays true without it moving or oxidizing(blochiness) on me.Looks the same as I applied it 8 hours ago. Definitely a true keeper. Will repurchase again!
This looks frighteningly bright pink in the pan, but amazing when applied with a very light touch on med-dark skin - brightens up my NC40-42 cheeks. I never really thought pink blushes were for me (most pull coral on my olivey-yellow undertones) - but this shows up as a true pinky glow. Since it is so pigmented this will last me a lifetime and then some, but I would rebuy if I lost it :)
I'm into bright pink blushes so I had to have this. Its a beautiful blush true to color and pigmented.it truly lasts a long time. I'm really happy with this blush line from tarts I also have expose(looove) and blissful, I plan on getting flush and maybe natural beauty too:)
Well, I thought Bella Bamba was my HG until I found this. I was playing with the Tarte line at Sephora when I caught sight of this blush and stopped dead in my tracks. It was the most beautiful shade of pink I'd ever seen. When I put it on, it was love at first sight. It provides such a radiant flush and does so with no sparkle. As much as I love Bella Bamba, there have been times when I wished it were matte. I'm not sure if it lasts twelve hours, but it sure as hell lasts longer than any other blush I've tried. It also looks great with their Hope lipstain. I'm on my way to a full-on Tarte addiction, and I need an intervention.
I bought this because I really wanted the look of flushed babydoll cheeks, but instead it emphasized my tan, and looked like that perfect summer glow. Almost like it could be sunburn that's turning into tan?
Anyways, it does last for 12 hours, although towards the end it does oxidise and can look a little bit orange, but that's only with powder OVER it, instead of the blush over the powder.
For some reason, I have like... a gray crust on mine? I think it may be because it got some cream blush on it. I scraped it off, and it's good as new! Even with the scraping and using it 3 times a week for the past 10 months, it still hasn't hit pan. Speaking of pans, mine does fall out occassionally, but will just pop back in.
Love, Love, Love these! I also have blissful, dollface and exposed. I love them all .My other expensive blushes are now ignored.
This is totally buildable and lasts forever on my oily skin. Glides on so beautiful. This color is fun and easy to wear. Love it!
I have to be honest, this blush scares the crap out of me in the pan. I'm not one to wear bright pink blushes, I lean towards peachy or mauve colors. This, however, is gorgeous. I'm NW20 and it being a blue-based pink I find that it's a pink I can actually wear! It looks very fresh and pretty. It's SO pigmented that a little goes a long way but it's very blendable. It's matte which I like because I am just not a big fan of shimmery blushes. These last a good 7+ hours on my oily skin, which is pretty amazing. I have 4 of these in (Blissful, Exposed, Amused, Peaceful) and can't wait to get more. LOVE these.
I got this blush in a special "trial" package from Tarte that was available to Sephora beauty insiders. It's not a color I would have picked for myself because it looks SO candy pink in the pan. First time I put it on I looked like a clown. This is VERY pigmented. Light hand, light brush! Once you get that down pat? This may be HG! When applied lightly this color is lovely. The amount you get will last a really really long time. Gives a nice flush to my skin without any glitter, which is very important to me. I find that so many otherwise nice blushes are ruined by glitter! This is blendable and smooth and lasts ALL DAY! (And doesn't oxidize!) This is the best blush I've ever used and I've tried 'em all! Even for this not being my perfect color I still adore it! Can't wait to get every other shade. This blush is the best thing since...well, anything! Must must must try! If you don't believe me, go to Sephora and give it a go. You will love it!
