Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Dazzled

Today I have another one of Tarte's Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blushes to share with you! I picked up two shades last week from Sephora, Dazzled and Tipsy. I've been loving both, and today I'll share my thoughts on Dazzled with you :)

I love that Tarte colour co-ordinates their packaging with the actual shades of the blushes. This makes finding the right shade in the morning so much easier, especially if you own more than one. Also, if you are a fan of depotting, Tarte included a tiny hole on the bottom of the packaging. You can just slide a pin in the hole, and push out the magnetic plate that holds the blush. I think this is such a great idea, and more companies should start doing this!

Dazzled is described as a soft rose, but I think that it has some plummy undertones. This blush also has some slight shimmer in the formula, but it doesn't translate very well to the cheeks. I still choose to wear a highlighter while wearing this blush. This blush, as with all of the Amazonian Clay Blushes, has great pigmentation. I just sweep my brush (I use a Sigma F40) gently over the blush, and that's more than enough for my cheeks. I find that Dazzled can be sheered out if you apply too much.

I really like Dazzled because this shade adds a really nice, natural looking glow to my cheeks. I find that Dazzled does last the full 12 hours on my cheeks, but it does start to fade in intensity around the 8 hour mark. I really haven't seen too many reviews on this shade, but I'm really glad that I decided to pick it up! I think that Dazzled is a shade that you could pair with any eye or lip look. Since the colour is more on the muted side, it won't clash with a smoky eye or bold lip. 

Tarte blushes are $31 CAD for 5.6g, which is a ton of product! I'm still wanting to pick up more shades, and I have my eyes on Buff, Blushing Bride, and Frisky. What are your favourite shades from Tarte's Amazonian Clay line? Have you tied Dazzled before? :)

  5. Such a great colour on you!!! I haven't tried any tarte products other than mascara and lip stains. I'll definitely consider this when I run out of bronzer!

    1. Thanks! They're so addicting, once you get one you'll want them all! I've always been curious about their blush palettes, but I've always already owned one or two of the shades. I'd be all over one with shades I didn't own!
