I expected so much from this product. I hesitated on buying it for a while because it had a steep price for a blush. So when I finally decided to get it and tried it, I was really disappointed. It went on very patchy on my cheeks while i have been using my usual Zoeva blush brush. I really have to work it to get any color on my cheeks(and I am very very fair skinned) I don't know what I was doing wrong. but I end up going back to my HG MAC Blushbaby Blush (which has almost the same color as this one), I don't know what he hype was about, but I was certainly not blown away. (I'm sorry just my opinion)

I really want to love this product after reading several online reviews, but I cannot make this color work on me. For reference, I am a NC20-25 Asian with warm undertones and naturally flushed cheeks. MAC Sheertone Pinch O Peach (discontinued version before reformulation) was my go-to blush ever since my aunt gifted it to me and I found it quite pigmented, yet lacking in longevity. I decided to buy a Tarte blush because I heard it was suited for oily skin types due to the Amazonian clay formula. Furthermore I chose "Exposed" as several people recommend it as natural blush that works with almost anything. I tried to pick up product with my Real Technique blush brush, but it only grabbed a hint of color. Afterwards I resorted to using my Real Technique stippling brush because the stiffer bristles picked up more product. I had to use a gentle hand with the stippling brush and then blend the color with a clean brush or Beauty Blender. In spite of the efforts I put in, I was not impressed with the color or pigmentation of this blush. The blush itself looked too ruddy and unnatural for my complexion. In addition this blush did not sync well with my usual contour color (KVD Shade & Light Subconscious), thus creating a muddy look on my cheeks. As for the longievity, this one did stay on my cheeks for 7+ hours in hot, humid weather with little to no fading. I may not a makeup expert, but I am aware that "Exposed" is not for me. Fuchsia, coral, peachy pink, and some plum shades suit my complexion better than red toned blushes, even though "Exposed" is described as a nude. I am positive that this is a great blush color for other people, but I wouldn't repurchase "Exposed". I may exchange for a different shade so I haven't given up hope on the Amazonian Clay blushes yet.

Ever since Nars cruelly killed off Douceur I have been searching for the best browny-pink blush. I have been through a few in my quest, none of which have made the cut (Hourglass Mood Exposure, MAC Buff). Exposed is my closest match so far in both colour and formula. The colour is a beautiful browny-pink, it is more brown than pink. As compared to the Hourglass offering: hourglass is more red pink rather than soft neutral pink. In comparison to Mac Buff, it has more brown and less pink, it is also more warm as Buff has a cool undertone.

The price is cheaper than most of the offerings, with the Nars Blushes retailing for AU $44.00 for 0.16 oz, Mac is $32.00 (pan blush) for 0.21 oz, Hourglass is $57.00 for 0.15 oz, and then Tarte Exposed is $38.00 for 0.2 oz. So definitely the least amount of product, however the formula means that it is hard to use up quickly.

The formula is stiff in a really good way. It doesn't have any dusty kick off but also has a lot of pigmentation. Even though the Nars has more product, it does have a little kick back and means that I have gone through a pan in about 9 months worth of daily use. So will have too see how fast this Tarte offering drys up.

Perfect tone, goes with absolutely everything. Every time I put it on after a couple of weeks without using it, I sigh a little bit because of how nice it makes my cheeks look.
I thought I lost mine recently and went out and bought it right away! Possibly all time favourite.

Exposed is a muted brown based pink with a hint of red. Its hard to describe the color but its a lovely neutral blush that goes with a lot of makeup looks. Its matte and longlasting. The perfect all year round blush. I love it.

This is the ultimate 'goes with everything' blush. Such a light & natural shade! It looks like you just did a hike through the winter cold. Since I have this I haven't worn any other shade, it is just so versatile. My skin is NC20 and I have freckles, for reference. Highly recommended!

I agree with all the positive reviews of this blush! The colour is "just right", and looks good on almost all skin tones. I'm a nc20/25 for reference, and this blush looks so natural on me.
I wish the packaging looked a bit more "elegant", but other than that I have no complaints.

Favourite blush ever! This colour looks great on my nc15 skin. The product is pigmented, yet soft and buildable, and the packaging is cute. I never would have picked this colour from its appearance in the pan- it looks uninspiring and unassuming in the bad way, but as soon as I swatched it, I knew it was something special. It gives a lovely, "just right" kind of warm flush to pale skin.

For me, this product lived up to the hype, and how often does that happen? I have to hold myself back from over-applying because it is just that nice!

Lasted hours and hours on the skin.
Very pretty pinky brown color with a matte finish but does not look dull.

Super easy to depot.
A small hole is located on the back of the compact towards the top where the hinge is located. You can lift the plastic label to expose the hole or simply press through it and out pops the already magnitized blush pan.

Wow. Looks so natural, like you're in a lingerie commercial. I've never tried on a blush as nice as this, not from Mac, Bobbi Brown, or Nars. My skin tone is yellow-based, warm-toned. I am Light on a scale of Fair, Light, Medium, Dark. This is a part of my 3-minute makeup routine.

Pros:
stunning packaging (way nicer than any other)
natural-looking and dreamy
long-wear
doesn't break me out like some blushes

Cons:
price
packaging is too pretty to depot
