With a light hand this works well with my NC-15 skin. This is pretty shimmery, and again requires a light hand to avoid looking frosty. Gives a nice healthy glow. Nice peachy pink, leaning more towards peach on me. Can't say I got 12 hour out of this, but it's a very pretty shade none the less.

Glisten gives a healthy glow to my NC/NW 20 skin, with minimal shimmer. I bought it about a year ago and after almost a full year of wearing it just about every day, I still have plenty left. It may be a bit expensive up-front, but you'll have it for a long time!

This is the best blush that I currently own. I originally bought NARS Orgasm, which broke me out badly on my cheeks. I bought this as an all natural dupe for Orgasm, and I think the color is pretty close. This blush is a lovely peachy pink with a slight gold shimmer. I think it might look better on warmer undertones, but it would still look good on everyone. it is nice and blendable, has nice pigmentation, and lasts all day. It is light enough for very fair skin tones, yet pigmented enough that fairly dark skin tones could easily wear it as well. Bonus - if you like to de-pot your blushes, this has a mini hole on the bottom big enough to push a needle through to pop out the pan easily! I think this blush will last me several years. with everyday use, it would probably last 1 1/2 to 2 years. I will be purchasing more shades of the Tarte blushes.

This is my new HG blush! This blush gives a smooth natural sheen to the cheeks without looking too shimmery (*ahem
Nars orgasm) and it also stays on all day without having to reapply. The shade Glisten is very similar to the Nars deep throat blush which I also own but Glisten has more of a golden sheen to it. It is also comparable with the Chanel blush in Rose Bronze which I also love but Glisten is a tad bit smoother and more pigmented. Hands down the best blush I've tried so far, and it's definitely worth the 26 bucks.
The reason why I chose Glisten over other shades in the Amazonian clay blush series is because it has a good balance of peach and pink. I tried on Dollface, Tipsy and Blissful too but the former was too pink and the latter two too inclined to peach or orange and since I don't have a smooth complexion I try to avoid those two colors because they tend to make my face look dirty when the makeup starts to oxidize.
For your reference My skin tone fluctuates from NC 30-40 (MAC) depending on the season and I am a constant Golden Beige in Revlon colorstay. This blush looks really nice on my skintone and is really natural looking day or night.

This is my 2nd blush from Tarte I have Adored as well. This one is my favorite hands down! Reason being I find the colour so dang pretty! It's one of the most beautiful colours I own, and I own way to many blushers but what can I say blush is my thing;) I'm cool toned and have very fair skin. I'm a NW15-20 for reference and this colour is perfect for my skin tone. I love that it is more pink than peach yes, it's similar to Orgasm which I love as well. Yet this one is different. It leaves a gold shimmer that can let you get away with not using a highlighter. If you love shimmer this is right up your alley because it is shimmery but on the skin it looks amazing, luminous,glistening for real. Not overdone at all in my opinion.
This blush really makes my face come alive. It works with any eye look I want and it lasts! Not 12 hours for me but a very long time without touching it up. It's good quality and is very big so you are really getting your $$'s worth. I have used it since early August and you can't even tell. You don't need a lot of product and it's a foolproof blush to apply. If you like Orgasm or shades like it you will love Glisten.It's excellent for fair skin and darker skin I can see it being beautiful as well. I think it's, its own distinct colour! If you like Tarte products you will love this, if your new to Tarte this is a great blusher to get.

I absolutely love this blush. I apply it with the Tarte fan brush and it gives a very natural looking color with a nice glow. I don't know that I would say it last 12 hours but it does last throughout my 8 hour work day for sure. The shimmer is very nice and almost has a sheer glowy effect and does not look like I straight up have glitter on my face like other shimmer blushes I have used. Definitely recommend trying!

Honestly, the first blush I've ever liked enough to write a review about. Ever.
Now, I won't lie-- this is also my first time buying a blush over, say, 10 dollars. It's not really because I am cheap or because I don't like HQ products, but more because I don't wear a lot of makeup. Therefore, when I buy something, I try to do it frugally. In the past, I have paid for that with brands like CG, Almay, and Maybelline-- as far as blushes are concerned. The mineral oil would break my cheeks out, way too much product would collect on my brush and create waste, it would crack in the palette, or the color was just a little off.
This blush is PERFECT: it solves all of the problems I had above. Natural ingredients, no oils, parabens, etc., super concentrated and pressed enough so that my brush doesn't create excess...aahhhh. Can't rave enough about it. The color is amazing on my fair skin (I would say I have a cooler skin tone; you can see the blue in my veins) and I can imagine it would look great when I get a "tan" in the summer, or on people with golden skin. I almost didn't buy this because of the sheer glitter, because I thought it would be too much for me and wouldn't be an everyday, wearable blush. Not the case-- it creates a beautiful golden sheen and brightens your whole face.
I gave it three lippies for price, simply because it is expensive, BUT I will buy this over and over again. I can imagine it will last forever too. Totally HG for me as far as blushes are concerned and SO thankful for the reviews on here pushing me to look into Tarte products. Bravo!

My go to, everyday blush. Works well on my NW25 skin, makes me look fresh faced and glowing. Shimmer is subtle and doesn't emphasize pores. Lasts for ages. I'm rating the price a 3 because while it is rather pricey, it lasts for ages.

I've been using NARS Orgasm/Deep Throat as my everyday blush for a few years before I finally realized they're probably what is causing these annoying little bumps I get on my cheekbones. So I wanted to switch to something without so much gunk in it, and these have been garnering a lot of attention.
It actually took me 2 tries to actually buy one of these blushes... the first time I wasn't impressed with ANY of the colors, but the second time this one grabbed me. It's a pale peachy-pink, good for us fair gals. I was wary of the shimmer (the main reason I switched from Orgasm to Deep Throat) but the other colors seemed to dark and bold for my fair skintone (at least to wear to work). So I bought this... and I have to admit I really like it.
The shimmer is there - you could probably buff it out, honestly - but it's not glittery or obnoxious. I wear it to the office without a problem (business casual, non-profit arts org, YMMV depending on your office's culture). It's natural looking, makes me look awake and alive, and lasts ALL day. Plus, it's free of all kind of garbage that I've been trying to remove from my beauty routine. Yay for that!

Beautiful color! I love this product. Glisten leaves the cheeks with color ALL DAY LONG. This is no joke. Super long-lasting. The only down-side I see to this blush is its price. It's ~$25USD.
I do love it, and will probably purchase again (if necessary) but I don't see that happening for a LONG time. You don't need much of this product. A little goes a LONG way.
