Review: Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in 'Exposed' - Hate >> Love Story

Hey Guys

I know, I am here after almost 2 weeks. Work load suddenly increased at office and it just became impossible for me to juggle between work and home lost track of everything in the beauty/ blogging world. However, I didn't stop wearing make-up, which is absolutely minimal now a days with just Foundation, Concealer, Bronzer, Blush for the face Mascara and a black kohl on eyes and a bright/ nude/ natural lipstick depending on the day/ mood. One product that I wore most was Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed.

I got this blush last year because a lot of my favorite bloggers and YouTubers raved/ rave about it. It landed in my kitty after waiting for almost 2 months. And as soon as I saw it, I found it to be boring, but, still kept trying it, but, never liked how it looked on me. At that time it never showed up on me. I had to really rub the brush hard to get some pigment showing on me. And then it went somewhere in the back of my drawer and was left unnoticed for many months.

Recently I thought of giving it one last try, and to my utter surprise I instantly loved how it looked on me. I saw the blush very closely to see if there was any change in the formula or texture! This when I realised, what I thought a boring shade is actually very complex. It's brown with noticeable hint of pink and plum with very very sheer sheen thrown in, which makes it even more interesting. 

I like that these blushes are not very loosely pigmented for them to become favorite when in a hurry! But, you can definitely build up the color to intensity that you like. Longevity wise, it pretty long wearing and I did not notice any signs of fading or patchiness for good 8 hours. 

Like it other counterparts, it comes in a mirrored plastic compact of the same color as the blush. I find the plastic a bit of cheap quality, but, doesn't really better so long as the product it worth it! 

Price: USD 26.00 for 0.2 oz. 

Enough rambling and let the pictures do some talking now!

I am sure all of us have these hate stories converted into love stories with make-up and that' precisely the reason I resist to say bad things about any product! This is my recent story and thought, why not share with you guys along with a review! Which is that product you hated it before but love now or vice versa! Do share your love/ hate stories with me down below in the comments. 

Lots of Love

  3. I see what you mean about the color being a little bland at first glance! You just have to keep using it until you see its real beauty! Glad to see you're back, Eesha! <3

  4. Hey Eesha, I'm glad you gave it one last chance! This could totally happen. I like how Exposed looks on you. The brown tone is much less obvious than it is on me! I used to really like it, but one summer I took it back to Taipei with me, and it oxidized pretty bad! I haven't really given it another chance since then. Maybe I should, too!
