One of my all time favorite blushes in my collection. I just bought it about a month ago and I use it at least 3 times a week. It's the perfect nude with a touch of pink. It goes with any makeup look, and it's so natural looking that it's pretty much impossible to overdo. Long lasting too! I own 6 of the Tarte Amazonian Clay blushes and love all of them but if I had to recommend just one, it would be this one. Well worth the $26 in my opinion. Seriously it is so beautiful and natural looking! It will take me forever to use up but I will definitely repurchase.

This has become my go-to blush. I have been wearing it everyday since I bought it. I was looking for a nice neutral blush that would go with just about any look, since all the blushes I own are more in the pink family.
First off I like the packaging. It is the same color as the blush yet is still sturdy, sleek and fits well in my makeup bag.
As for the actual product, I love it. It is well pigmented so I don't feel the need to swirl my brush so much in the product. It is easy to apply and easy to blend. It gives me a nice healthy looking glow without overpowering my face. I am interested in purchasing more of these blushes.

I got a sample size of this blush as part of the 500 point redemption at Sephora and it's my first Tarte blush and probably not my last.
I love the neutral matte texture and it's a nice brown based rose/mauve shade for an everyday look. This is the perfect soft blush for a dramatic eye or dramatic lip look.
I was concerned the texture would be chalky and it's actually not; it's soft but there's enough pigment so I don't have to pile on the product in order for the colour to show.
The staying power is decent and it lasts for most of the day.
I like Tarte's eco-friendly philosophy too. I might spring for the blush palette one of these days.

I'm disappointed. The color that translated on my cheeks didn't wow me. I picked this up during the VIB sale so it was ~$20 instead of $26. I honestly felt that I would rather have gotten a MAC blusher instead. On my NC25 combination acne-prone skin, it came off more of a slightly orange tinged nude instead of a dusty rose nude...which is weird because it totally did look like a dusty nude on a sephora SA when she told me what was on her cheeks.
For the price and color, it's not something I'd go out of my way to get. I'll give it another chance but I'm definitely going to return it if my mood about it hasn't been changed. this blush has so much hype around it and it was such a let down D:
For those who are looking for a dusty nude rose colored blusher I'd recommended MAC's blushbaby or Tarina Tarintino's blusher in charm.

I'm really impressed with this blush. It's very pigmented so you don't need to use a lot, the color is buildable and the product has a really lovely fine texture to it. The color, however, is the real winner. Exposed is matte (but not at all chalky) with no shimmer, and is a beautiful bronzy/mauvey/rosy blush that gives the most pretty, healthy-looking flush. I'd definitely repurchase.

Don't believe the hype. I'm disappointed I did. Literally everyone was raving about this so I went to purchase it a while back. I dont like it on me. It is underwhelming and fell short of what everyone was saying about it. I did not find it flattering at all.

I have been wearing this blush for exactly one week and I can't even count the number of compliments I have received. Not specifically about the blush - but just that my skin has a very healthy glow. Everyone is asking what I am using that is different. This is just such a natural, healthy looking, rosy colour on my cheeks. Does not fade and does not change colours throughout the day. Not muddy or orangey, no glitter, just natural looking. I can see myself wearing this blush daily for......well, maybe forever! I apply lightly on the apples of my cheeks over MUFE face and body foundation (another absolute winner for me).

I've heard a lot of great things about these blushes, so I got it in a 500-point reward from Sephora. I think this is just an average blush.
Maybe its because I've almost always purchased high end blushes (Shiseido, Giorgio Armani, Hourglass, etc.) but I don't see what the big fuss is about this blush. Don't get me wrong, its not a bad blush, but I also don't think its exceptional.
Color: its a rosy/bronzy/slightly mauvey kind of color. I think its a color that can work for a lot of people, and match most makeup but its kind of plain and a bit flat. On my pale asian skin, I feel it makes me look like I'm flushing (not necessarily in a good way). I find it quite pigmented, so I try to tap off excess before applying.
Texture: average. Nothing particular.
Longevity: where it does last pretty much all day, it doesn't look quite like it did when I first apply it in the morning. I feel its important to note this since it is advertised as a long wearing blush. I have other blushes that last better.
I'm also not going to comment on its hydrating and oil controlling abilities because I find that's kind of ridiculous. Its makeup for your cheeks, NOT skincare.
All in all, not a bad blush, but I think its over hyped. I will use it, but will not purchase a full size.

Exposed has quickly become the most-used blush in my stash. My Nars blushes are collecting dust. I got this product in my Sephora 500 point reward, a really good-sized amount of product, and I use it so much that I'm fairly certain I will hit pan one day and NEED to replace it. On my fair skin, Exposed is a brownish mauve with almost a peach undertone, and it is completely matte. It is an incredibly versatile color; I have yet to find an eye or lip look that it doesn't coordinate well with. It's as versatile as a nude or the perfect peachy-pink, while being a step up in uniqueness and eye-catching potential.
I just feel so pretty right after I put this on, it just instantly warms and brightens up my face. Even on a day when I'm wearing almost no makeup, it's the perfect finishing touch to boost my confidence. I like to layer this blush; I think it builds up beautifully well without being garish. And it lasts really well- not 12 hours, mind you, but it stays through an 8-hour workday, and a touch-up lasts through the evening. Finally, as others have said, this is somewhere between a contour powder and a blush, so you can play with the placement- either on the apples of your cheeks or under your cheekbones.
In sum, I can't sing the praises of this blush enough. I'm really glad I got it for free because I probably wouldn't have bought it on sight, but I'm so glad I discovered it like I did, because it is much prettier on the face than in the pan.

I am awful at putting on blush but Exposed makes it simple. It gives the perfect natural flush and is easy to blend out. And it really lives up to the 12hr claim. I have it in Dollface as well, which is good but I find myself reaching for Exposed more.
