I like this blush the most from line because its the most natural looking, which I'm a fan of. Most of the blushes from tarte just look way too glittery and the colours are too bold for me. This is a matte dusty rose colour, which is very flattering on my fair skin tone. The colour is very pigmented but definitely not too harsh. I love the packaging, its so cute! and i have to say i accidentally dropped it on my tile floor and miraculously it didn't break. The only reason i took off a lipie is for the $30 price tag.

What I think of the product: I've been using this blush for a few months now and I have used it every single day, which says a lot because I used to never wear blush. I have a few scars just in the apples of the cheeks, got chicken pox way too old (14 or 15 years old) that look as acne scars. Usually wearing blush meant bringing up attention to the most annoying flaw on my face after my efforts of covering it up.
I wear peachy colors, Bobbi Brown Peach Nude is a nice option, but never wore pink, any variation of it, because of what I mentioned earlier. Well, surprisingly this blush works great, its subtle color doesn't accentuate my scars so I've been enjoying it greatly. The color, as everyone have said, doesn't look very special on the pan, but it's a very flattering brownish pink.
The application: I have to swirl my brush considerably (four times, at least) on the pan in order to get it to show in my skin. Once I have the right amount it looks great, but it might bother some people. I don't mind and I would definitely buy it again.

Great find for those with super pale skin. Goes on looking very natural. Would definitely buy/recommend.

This is the most I have ever spent on a blush, since I'm a stingy lady at heart. But I swatched it on my cheeks while I was at Sephora, and when I got home I looked so beautiful with such a perfect, natural glowing flush. AND, at 6pm that blush looked *exactly* like it did when I first applied it at noon. I went back and bought it.

I'm a pale NC15 and have to work hard to get this to show up! It comes across like a light brown but when I take it off with a remover towel, I can see the pink in it. I love nude pinks but this one doesn't do it for me. I'd rather go back to using my MAC Prism.

I love this blush!! I wasn't sure what to expect because it looked like a bronzer, but when I put it on it was a perfect compliment to my skin. It's definitely my most used blush. The packaging is pretty nice, I dropped it and the mirror came out but I glued it back on and now it's fine. I normally would never by a light brown blush but this some how turns into the most flattering perfect color. I wear it with the exposed matte lipsurgence and I am complete!:)

This blush is amazing!! Without a doubt my favorite blush ever. It is one of those colors you can never mess up with. It's very smooth and easy to apply and I never have to worry about applying too much. It's the perfect natural looking color. It gives my face that beautiful, perfect, healthy glow. I was very hesistant to try this color because I thought it would looks "muddy" or too brown on my fair skin but it's far from that. It looks like a very suddle nude/pink/mauve. I also love how long-wearing this blush is. It never gets blotchy or funny looking throughout the day. If you are hesitant about this color I suggest trying it! It's the perfect color to have in your makeup collection because it can literally go with any look.

if you are looking for a bright, vibrant flush ~ this product definitely isn't for you. this product does, however, give you a super NATURAL, healthy flush of colour. this blush is a really nice plummy nude colour (even though tarte says it's nude, you can see it has a plum tone to it) that gives you a very natural looking blush, like it is actually your cheeks naturally flushing. i know some people like their blush to be obvious and all, but i generally don't (there are times when i've done the brightly flushed 'in from the cold' look though, but it's rare), so this blush is fabulous for me. for reference, i am East Asian with light skin (think MAC NC20) and neutral undertones, and this shows up as a nice, rosy sort of colour. it makes a very good 'everyday' sort of blush. it's just beautiful. it is buildable though, so if you're into obvious blush simply layer until your desired intensity.
as for the 12-hour claim, i have to be honest, i can't say because i don't wear makeup for that long of a duration in the first place, but i can say that it lasts at least 8 to 9 hours on my combination skin without fading or sliding.

I purchased the Tarte 12hr blush in 'expossed' after hearing many good things about it. I like that this color is not 'in your face', just enough color to give my face some life for my morning classes. I also like that it gives a little bit of a bronzy-ish look as well. I am looking forward to see how this blush will look when my skin is tan during the summer. However, it does not last 12hrs as the packaging says, I notice around the 7-9hr mark the color is starting to fade, overall I would recommend this product and would repurchase this color and others. As with other Tare products I have tried, this product has not caused any breakouts. My only con to this product is it is a little on the pricy side for my college student budget.

There is no doubt that Exposed is a gorgeous nude-mauve color; however, it makes my skin look a little dull. It can also come out making my skin look a bit ruddy since it's hard to blend. It does not stay on for 12 hours, not even close. Maybe about 5. It's definitely faded by lunch time. It's a pretty color, but doesn't really perform.

This was my first Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush. I was really hoping to love this because so many other people recommended it. As an Asian with NW30 skin, I thought that Exposed would give me a light, natural looking flush on my cheeks. However, this product disappointed me. I like the color on my cheeks--when it shows up. And it hardly ever does. I have tried different brushes but I really have to pack it on in order to get it to show up on my cheeks.
It really is a beautiful color but it's just a little too light for me. I own Blissful and Dollface as well, and Dollface (which I thought wouldn't show up on me) shows up beautifully and more pigmented than Exposed.
For the price, I was hoping that it would show up more on my skin.

This is my 'go to' blush. I have purchased other shades from tarte, and love them just as much, but always seem to come back to this one. It gives your cheek the perfect colour. It's build able, which is great - if you want slight colour or more. It looks great year round, from winter pale skin to tanned summer skin. Lasts a long time, with a super cute/slim compact. Definitely a great buy!

This is a blush definitely worth mentioning and purchasing. It's an excellent everday HG bronzy/brownish pink blush that is comparable to Mac's blushbaby yet pinker! On my NC42 face I look more vibrant and healthier. Recently I've been on a quest to find natural alternatives in cosmetics since I tend to break out recently and so far this blush doesn't! Love love LOVE it and I will continue to buy this as long as Tarte make them.

I just cannot jump on the bandwagon with this blush! I would give this blush a 2.5 if I could. I have very fair skin with freckles and the shade Exposed looked reddish and muddy on me. I tried applying less of it, and it still looked clownish and almost as bad as a sunburn! The finish was, as I said before, sort of muddy and not at all flawless. I have tried the Tarte tipsy blush and was much more impressed by the color and finish than I was with this shade. For those of you with very fair skin, I would suggest staying away from this shade. However, I could see this shade being stunning on someone with darker or olive skin.
-cute, convenient, and sleek packaging
-pigmented and buildable
-really does stay on forever! Maybe not a full 12 hours but at least 8-10 hours with minimal fading!
-shade is too dark (reddish)
-i know i said it's buildable, but it seems like one second you barely have any on, and then after you add a tinyyy bit more, WHAM! You suddenly have a clown face!
I exchanged this blush for Blissful and am hopeful!

after all the reviews and hypes on this, i tried it. it has fragrant smell and pink undertone. the packaging is not the best, cheap looking. the ingredients are not so harmful, no parabens.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Black
Kind of disappointed. It's a nice colour but not pigmented enough for me. If you like sheer blushes then you might like this. Not me. I have to layer it on before I get enough colour on my cheeks. I don't know if I got a bad one but the texture is kinda dry and a bit chalky which makes it not pigmented.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this blush! I've been using it everyday since I purchased it. I was hesitant at getting it, since it didn't look like anything special in the pan or when swatched, however it has turned out to be excellent for contouring and does not look over done. It is super easy to blend and the color pay off is great. I'm an NW20 and will definitely repurchase this one when I run out.

This is a great nude blush. Not too pink, not too brown. It's an easy way to bring some color back to your face after foundation, or to lightly sculpt the face. It can be a little ruddy if over applied though.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair, Cool Hair: Red, Curly, Medium Eyes: Green
I just got this blush and it is beautiful! It goes very well with my fair complexion and stays put on my normal skin. I highly recommend!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Blue
Yes this product is expensive but if you have some extra $$ to spend I highly recommend this! I always thought the color looked "blah" in the pan so I never purchased it but after reading reviews and seeing it on Youtube gurus, I had to finally check it out. On the skin it is a pretty rosy/nude.. it looks natural but adds definition. Sometimes bright pinks look way too ridiculous on me so I love the warmth that this gives my light/medium skin. I can see why this might not work on everyone but I think light to medium complexions should give this a shot!
