Company’s Description

A long-wearing, supremely soft blush infused with Amazonian clay harvested from the banks of the Amazon River and naturally baked by the sun.

Tarte’s Spring 2014 Collection features new Amazonian Clay 12-Hour blush shades. This review is for Fearless (pink coral) and True Love (watermelon).

Sephora.com, Inc.

Packaging: 9.25/10

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 packaging no longer has a floral/leaf design on the top of the compact.

Quality: 8.5/10

Although Fearless is described as a coral pink and True Love as a watermelon, they end up looking similar on the skin. Fearless is a brighter shade than True Love and also has the tiniest bit more sheen to the finish than True Love.

Both blushes have good color, but are translucent when first applied, so you might need to apply a second layer of powder. This is different from the previous Amazonian Clay blushes, which have stronger pigmentation and rarely needed layering. Fearless and True Love also seem to need more blending and buffing to even out the color.

Ease of Use: 8.5/10

These give your cheeks color fairly quickly, but need more blending and layering to make sure the color is smooth on the skin.

Price: 8.5/10

You pay $25.00 for 5.6 grams of product. For comparison, MAC powder blushes cost $19.50 each and contain 6 grams of product.

    Thanks for posting these! If possible, can you tell me, if you think the new blush in True love is a close match to Natural Beauty?
