This blush is so beautiful! I previously had the Sephora cream blush which never lasted on my skin and would distribute in an unflattering way. I didn't really use blush because the cream one was the only one I had, so I thought I'd splurge and get one of the better-rated blushes and I AM SO HAPPY I DID. The blush doesn't get on your brush very easily, which I actually enjoy because then I don't end up with clown face straight out the gate. It gives a nice, healthy glow to my pale face and I just feel so feminine and pretty whenever I wear it. Highly recommend! I did however rate the price and packaging a 2 because I'm still sore from paying 32 bucks (Canadian) for a blush/the packaging looks and feels kinda cheap, but the product itself is incredible.

This blush is idiot proof, and one I think should be a part of everyones collection. Initially I was a little thrown off by the lack of pigment this product gave off when I swatched it with my finger, over time however, I realized that is why it is so great. Using a brush, I find that I can apply layer upon layer of "Exposed" to my cheeks without ever looking overdone. Whether I do one quick sweep, or dip my brush into the product 2-3x, the final effect is always a natural flush. As advertised, this blush is also extremely long lasting, and I would even say looks better as the day goes on. Despite the high price tag, I have been using the blush regularly for almost a year (lets say 1-2x a week) and the indented pattern is still fully visible. The packaging of all of Tarte's blushes are very simple, yet sturdy, making them great for travel.

My go-to blush for daytime, work and natural looks. I'm fair with neutral-warm undertones and tan very warm. This is a beautifully pigmented product that is easy to blend. The texture in the pan allows for a brush to easily grab onto the product. I find that this blush lasts for 8-9 hours on my skin with minimal fading. (I live in a hot, humid area.) The formulation is among my favorite for blushes.

I received a deluxe sample of Exposed as part of a Tarte 500 pt. perk at Sephora and I'm so glad because I never would have expected a blush that is described as "nude" on Sephora's website and looked so mauve in the pan to be such a flattering dusty rose on my skin. Exposed is a beautiful matte blush that makes my face look more sculpted when I apply it to my cheekbones and looks incredible when paired with pink and nude lipsticks. It's also a great understated blush for when you want to do a bold lip or eye. In terms of quality, I'd put this blush on par with NARS. It's finely milled, and long lasting -- although, I wouldn't say it quite lives up to its 12-hour claim. I just finished my deluxe sample of Exposed, and will probably repurchase the full size as it has become a staple. I'm also excited to try other colors in the Amazonian Clay line.Along with the blush, I also received the Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder and a Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara in my 500 pt perk set. I'm still using the finishing powder to set my concealer and have repurchased the full size mascara ten times. I find Tarte's packaging kind of tacky, and would never have explored the brand on my own, but I've been so consistently impressed by all the samples I've received that I've slowly become a fan. I also appreciate the fact that Tarte is a vegan and cruelty free brand. The ingredients are generally excellent and the quality of the makeup is totally on par with non vegan products.

This is the only Tarte blush I have. The color is very flattering, but it is so tightly pressed that it is hard to pick up product with my brush. I use the Real Techniques Multi Task brush, because my regular blush brushes are too soft.For me, the compact is a little hard to get into, but I like how the color of it corresponds with the actual product.Lasts alright on me, but not 12 hours.

I tried another tarte blush and was impressed, and when I wanted a more natural and neutral color, I went back for this color. This blush is matte (which I prefer so I can layer a highlight in summer or go matte for other seasons), has great wear time, is pigmented, and has lasted me a long time. The color can be built up, and although it is pigmented, it would be hard to overdo it unless you picked up a ton of powder and kept brushing your cheeks with it. I find it to be easy to work with and provides consistent and beautiful results. It doesn't cake up and melts into my foundation with wear, leaving me with a great natural look instead of s typical powder blush look. This also wears well on bare skin and provides a natural wash of color. This specific color is a mauvey pink on me, and extremely natural looking. Like a "my cheecks, but better" color. The price is steep, but considering this will last me a year or more, it's worth it. Another big plus is it travels well and does not show any signs of being susceptible to chipping or cracking. Overall worth it. Highly recommend.

For reference, I am a very yellow nc25. Like super yellow (half Asian).I just bought this blush in Exposed because I wanted a natural, flushed look that would go with most of my nude lipsticks. I had read that this color is very similar to MAC's Blushbaby and that is very true, however on me this color was slightly more reddy-pink than Blushbaby, which shows up more plummy brown. A lot of other bloggers say the opposite, but I think because I have extremely yellow skin my coloring absorbs all the warmth from everything I put on, leaving only the cooler tones visible. The formulation of this blush is fantastic. I can't speak to the longevity as I've only had it on for a few hours, but it applied well with my Mac blush brush and blended like a dream. Personally, I prefer Blushbaby over Exposed because it's closer to my natural lip color and therefore closer to my natural "flush". I don't think most people would notice the difference but I like the idea that I only have to wear a clear gloss for my lips to match my cheeks. In conclusion, Exposed is a fabulous blush if you are not extremely yellow, and fortunately most of the population fits in this category. I will be returning it though since I have something similar that works better for me.

One of my favorite blushes. This is a beautiful dusty-nude that I think will compliment many skin tones. The formula of course is great, silky smooth, blendable, and long-wearing. What else would you expect from Tarte? This is great for everyday, as well as pairing with a bold eye or lip because it is very natural looking.

I own about 40 blushes (I know I'll never use them all up, but I'm a blush fanatic) and Tarte Exposed is my most-used, everyday blush. It gives a perfect natural-looking flush to my NC20 skin, and because of its brown undertones, it helps to make my cheekbones look sculpted. It really does last all day (maybe not quite 12 hours on me, but 9-10, which is impressive given my oily complexion). I will run out to repurchase it in a heartbeat once I'm done with my current pan.The only reason I'm giving it 4 lippies instead of 5 is that the texture of the powder is kind of... hard. You really have to swirl your brush around to pick up color, which means you end up using a lot more product compared to a softer, more pigmented blush.

RUN, don't walk, out and buy this blush. The color is to blush as MAC spice is to liner, just divine. It will suit many shades of skin. The deepest shades may find this light but I think it is very buildable. I absolutely love this a) on it's own to add a light flush that doesn't compete with a smokey eye b) on its own for a natural look c) under a brighter blush for a sweep of natural color under a bright pop (a la BB's technique). It has great staying power and is fairly priced as well, esp with a ULTA coupon.
