Company’s Description – Cheek Powder
For those who want an alternative blush to Tarte’s award-winning gel and cream cheek stains, we’re now offering Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in 8 shades. Inspired by our best-selling cheek and lip stains, shades range from soft pink (dollface) to deep berry (flush). Used alone or with our best-selling natural cheek stains, this blush is sure to give you that natural glow.
Each blush comes in a snap-shut compact in the color that matches the actual product. There is a magnet under the pan to keep it in place, but the pan does spin around in the well when you slide your brush over it. Each compact has a mirror and the pans have a pressed river/ferns design.
The formulation is smooth and not overly powdery. The colors have great pigmentation and can be applied lightly or built up.
I haven’t worn any of the colors for a full 12 hours, but after 6-7 hours, the color hadn’t faded at all. Also, when I swatched the colors for the video, they stained the skin slightly, which makes me think these really would last the full 12 hours Tarte claims.
Tarte also has created a great range of colors for this line. Even colors (like Blushing Bride) I didn’t think would flatter my skin tone work well. The colors also correlate with the colors in Tarte’s Cheek Stain and Lip Stain lines.
Ease of Use: 9.5/10
These powders easily apply in layers. The formulation is smooth, even, and not too powdery.
You pay $25.00 for 5.6 g of product. For comparison, MAC powder blushes cost $19.50 each and contain 6 g of product. These blushes are great quality, but definitely on the pricey side.
