Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 HR blush in Frisky - swatch/review

Tarte AC blush in Frisky
Today I bring you Tarte's Amazonian Clay 12 hour blush in Frisky.  This blush can be found at Sephora, Ulta, and Tarte's own site.  There are 15 colors to this series.  Each blush retails for $26.00 USD and contains 5.6g/0.20oz of powder product inside.  The case is a hard plastic with sturdy closure, mirror inside. Tarte has colored the plastic as close to the blush color inside as possible.

The color of this compact in particular is very close to what you get inside the pan.  This is a bright, shimmering coral with gold flecks.  The compact does a good job of reflecting that.

At first swipe of this for a swatch, Frisky was very bright.  It almost turned me off to it.  Also, the gold flecks, which are damn beautiful to look at, flew all over my skin.  The texture of this blush is nice.  The blush cake is hard, but soft to a brush's touch.  I do not find this to be powdery at all, the only fallout was the glitter.  The glitter does not stick around (WOO HOO!), once you swirl over the brush and tap the brush, you do not get any of the glitter on your face.

This looks vibrant, and it really is, but what I love about the formula is that it is incredibly buildable.  I do find that not all AC's are created equal.  The blush cake on this is firm, and when you swatch with either a brush or finger, it does not feel as if you are picking up a ton, but a swatch later, and holy pigmentation!  Light touches with this particular blush are best.  I have a few other AC's that I do two or three swipes with in order to get a nice amount of color.  I would not say that for me, combo-oily skin, these last 12 hours.  I do get a good 6-8 hour period though, and you cannot beat that.

These are all really great blushes.  I like that the color range isn't overwhelming in regards to color choice.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Such a pretty color I have only 2 Tarte blushes.

    1. It really is one of my favorites...but it is hard not to love all of the Tarte blushes. Which two do you have?

  2. This is currently my only tarte blush. I want Glisten and Exposed!

    1. Both of your choices are EXCELLENT! They are all really great colors and finishes :)
