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.

I like the color of this blush. To me it's almost identical to NARS' Orgasm. I like that this is a build able blush, but sometimes, it's to sheen/shimmery and doesn't look right/appropriate. But overall this is a good blush and I'd probably buy it again.

i LOVE this. but i also dislike it on somedays, if that makes any sense. the color, i LOVE. its a pinky peach almost coral sort of color, not muddy looking or brown tinted like some peach/coral tones can be. it actually is a bright pink in the pan which is almost a little off setting because seeing it that bright in the pan, is the reason i almost didn't purchase...and because of the chunky glitter. it isn't shimmer, its glitter. and everytime i use this blush i have to tap off as much of the glitter from the brush as i can because if not, i am left with a few of this pinkish colored glitter on my face. which is not the look i am going for. but all in all if you can deal with the glitter aspect of it its a great blush to use year round as i do. also it does seem to last a lot longer than most of my other blushes i have. the formulation is my only gripe with this. im all for shimmer but not for the chunky glitter. then again, maybe its just me that has this issue.

I fell in love with Tarte blushes after buying Natural Beauty and wanted to try some of their other shades as each one looked divine. However, I was disappointed with this shade. It is a sheer, peachy-pink color with shimmer that just wasn't for me. It reminded me of Nars Orgasm, etc. (colors that I haven't tried per se but have swatched numerous times at Sephora). I found that this blush wasn't pigmented much, and had it not been for the leftover color of Natural Beauty on my blush brush, I don't think I would have seen much color at all. And the more I applied it, the worse it got as I ended up with a pale, cake-y powder on my cheeks. I have also tried Tarte's Blushing Bride and wasn't too impressed with that either. Therefore, I'm wondering if I just got lucky with Natural Beauty and it is their only gem in terms of blushes.

I'm glad I got this. I was interested in trying one of the clay blushes. I'm NC20 blonde/blue-gray eyes for reference. This wears well on my pale skin. It has a slight glow as well. so pretty & easy to use!

Finally..FINALLY!!! A blush that shows up on my cheeks while looking pretty and natural. I don't know why, but blush is one of the most difficult things for me to apply. Haha. This blush applied with the blush brush that comes with the QVC set is a no-brainer. The blush is pigmented enough to show up on my skin (which is NC30, not dark at all), which is an irritating flaw with many blushes I own. It gives a pretty flush on my cheeks and I love it even more when I look back on pictures in which I'm wearing this blush. I've never really looked into these blushes until I received this one in the QVC set but I will definitely be picking up more colors. I consider this my HG blush.

I also got this with the Tarte QVC after already owning Dollface and Blissful, which are matte shades. All 3 of these are now my go-to blushes despite owning lots of others. The formula is fantastic - it's highly pigmented so you only need a bit, so although it's pricier it lasts forever and you also get a lot of product in the pan. Due to the clay formula it has no powder fallout which is really nice! The shade itself is a very pretty peachy-pink with gold shimmer. I'm a very pale girl with cool undertones and this worked well for me in the spring when I was very pale and also now that I have a bit of a tan in the summer. It provides a very pretty flushed look. My only problem with it is the shimmer which can look unnatural depending on the lighting. To fix this I apply it, then buff it out with the great brush that came in the kit, then I apply just a bit more over the top. This way the shimmer buffs out a bit and it also lasts even longer since there are 2 layers of it. If you can get your hands on this shade I'd definitely recommend it!

This is an absolutely GORGEOUS blush, hands down. It's a shimmery peachy-pink-coral shade that rivals NARS Orgasm. In fact, I think it surpasses NARS Orgasm. Best of all, instead of paying full-price for it, I bought it off E-bay. Otherwise, this blush isn't available for purchase by itself. Anyways, this blush is highly pigmented and will impart a beautiful coral flush to your face. The shimmer isn't too strong and the picture on this website isn't quite accurate. The picture on this website makes it appear to be a pale peachy blush but it's actually a deeper hue than what appears here. I would highly recommend this blush if you are able to get it. It's one of the best blushes out there and you probably won't need too many more corals after this one.

I got this as part of the QVC Tarte TSV like everyone else...right now, it's not available on its own anywhere. This and the brush (story for a different review) are worth tthe price of the kit! The rest, meh...but this blush...THE BEST BLUSH I'VE EVER WORN!
On me (I bought the light kit), fair, neutral, lots of red in my cheeks, it's a pinky-coral. I'm funny about my corals...can't be too orangy. This is just right. It's lightly shimmery, but very subtle. It looks conpletely natural in all lighting, and is really flattering. I've had several candid pictures taken wearing it and I'm very pleased...and I *hate* pictures of myself!
This kit was my first Tarte purchase, so I can't say if this blush is typical of the line but it is my new blush love! A little goes a long way, and I think the compact will last ages...but I will repurchase. I haven't said that about a blush in years!

I got this in the QVC TSV, and it is my everyday go-to blush.
It looks great on my golden-toned NC40 complexion and gives me a healthy, natural glow like I've just been making out!
It looks shimmery in the pan, but I haven't noticed a lot of shimmer when it actually goes on, even in sunlight. It hasn't irritated my skin one bit, and stays put all day.

First off I will say that I am a blush whore and have tried many, I found that Mac blushes have no lasting power on me and if applied in the morning will last only about 2-4 hrs max and be gone by mid-day. Nars blushes were my go to since they had better lasting power...until Tarte entered the scene. Now these little treasures are my favorites (they literally last all day on me and donít oxidize and change color), I have a lot of Nars blushes and have just recently picked these up in Tipsy, Glisten (QVC exclusive), Blissful, Exposed and Flush. I will write a review on all of these...now onto Glisten, gorgeous peach pink with soft gold shimmers. I love love love this blush, very similar to Nars Deep Throat but a deeper pink color and a little more shimmery. I normally hate shimmers in my blush because they emphasize uneveness on my skin but surprisingly this blush doesn't do that. Both are beautiful on the cheeks but Glisten wins hands down because it's smoother, and has skin friendly ingredients without the parabens which Nars is full of :( plus it's $2 cheaper, lasts way longer than Nars Deep Throat and the packaging is cute. You can tell what color blush you're reaching for by the color of the case which you can't do with Nars blushes. As I said this is QVC exclusive but can be found on Ebay if you really want to have it and trust me when I say you do! haha

On my nc30 skin, this reminds me of nars orgasm or deep throat(both look quite similar on my skin anyway). I've applied nars on one cheek and tarte on the other and i find that the shimmers on tarte is more subtle. I prefer the tarte because i dont really like a lot of shimmer esp on my oily combo skin and the tarte last way longer than nars.

I gave this a 5 but would not buy it again on its own. I received this in the TSV from QVC and it was an amazing deal each item with shipping is about $8.25. Not really a fan of shimmer and this shade reminds me of Orgasm and I prefer more mauvy/plum shades for daily blush; NC20 skin tone.
This is a peachy/brown with soft shimmer. Great addition to the existing shades and I see it becoming quite popular. Glisten has incredible endurance and can with stand high humidity while keeping the oil/shine at bay. Not an easy task for any makeup let alone blush. Highly pigmented so just a little will do and give a nice natural hue to the right skin tone.
The packaging on these blushes is amazing none of the other reviews mentioned this which I was a little shocked by. If you turn over the package you will see a small hole towards the hinge where you can push and pop out the blush making it easy to add to any palette. That's right it is that easy with no clean up, finger burns, warped pans, or divots in the product. Staying power YES is 12 hours and I live in South Florida where humidity it high yearly. Both of these things makes it far superior to other powder blush lines.

Got this as part of a kit from QVC. It's the only blush I'm using now. I love it. The color looks good on my fair to medium skin.

I gave this a 4, only due to the shimmer. That being said, this isn't a glitterbomb, but it does offer a bit of shimmer. If you don't like shimmer in your blush, this may not be for you. However, since this is the Amazonian Clay blush, the shimmer doesn't act like others would in terms of illuminating my pores and making them look huge. This blush is very pigmented, and smells good! (I don't know why!) This shade is only available through the Tarte package on QVC. However, ebay is lousy with them right now, and I was lucky to get one. This looks great on my NC20 skin tone, and will be a fun blush to wear this summer. It has almost a duo chrome sheen to it - very pretty, and I can see this working on many skin tones.

I ordered the world wonder set this came in(from QVC), but returned it after not liking the foundation or the eye shaow palette. So I ordered separately from ebay for about $17.00. To me this was the star piece of the set. Truly a beautiful color that brightens my dull complexion.The packaging is awesome as it comes with a mirror, plus good for you ingredients! Can't wait to try more of these blushes:)

I bought this off Ebay sight unseen. I'm not sure if I would have bought this if I'd seen it in person, because it is almost an exact dupe for NARS Deep Throat, which I already own. Glisten is perhaps just a smidgen deeper with more shimmer, but when I wear them both, neither myself nor my best friend could tell them apart. It's worth noting that Glisten outlasted Deep Throat and for that reason, I would choose it in the future.
Glisten is the perfect summer blush, a pretty blend of pink and light apricot with shimmer that thankfully doesn't look obvious or garish. It brightens while still being soft enough to wear in harsh light. I'm NC27 and I would guess this could be worn successfully by both darker and lighter complexions. (It would probably look killer with a tan.) As noted above, it has great lasting power even on my oily skin. Blush tends to disappear on me and not only did this last for hours, but it stayed looking fresh instead of mottled as blush can sometimes go on combo/oily skin. I expect this will fly off the shelves once Sephora gets it - it's just lovely.
