TARTE Bling It On Amazonian Clay Blush Palette


Tarte Bling It On Amazonian Clay Blush Palette icon(5 x 0.15 oz.) retails for $44 USD ($53 CAD) and includes five fan-favorite and limited-edition blushes, in a trendy palette. Breaking it down and doing the math, this set is a $105 USD ($127 CAD) value. It is said to be "a sleek, chic palette featuring five full-size, Amazonian clay blushes."

"This sleek, statement-making palette features five long-wearing, pigmented powder blushes. The full-size, flattering mix includes all-new stunners and blushing favorites powered by tarte’s iconic Amazonian clay, which helps to balance and replenish skin for better, longer, truer wear for a party-perfect flush. Treat yourself to this limited-edition bestseller encased in an accessory-inspired palette designed to delight and dazzle through any festive adventure."
The packaging is slim, black palette with chunky black glitter and features a mirror. The glitter does shed off occasionally, so for those who despise glitter, you may want to reconsider. The blushes are comparable to the regular line in being longer-lasting and having buildable pigmentation—but I found some shades in the palette didn't have quite as good performance as you would expect if you're familiar with the standard blush line.

Fetching is a medium-dark, muted pink rose with warm undertones and a satin finish. The texture was soft, smooth and lightly dense in the pan. It had good, buildable color payoff and blended out nicely across the skin. Fetching wore well for +9 hours before fading.(5/5)

Dollface is a light-medium pink with cool undertones and a satin-matte finish. The texture was soft, smooth, finely-milled and lightly powdery in the pan. Despite that, it didn't translate or appear chalky on the skin and had great pigmentation that was buildable. Dollface lasted +9 hours before fading. (5/5)

Prim is a light-medium, muted pink brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. The texture was soft, smooth and lightly dense in the pan. It had nice, buildable color payoff that applied and blended easily on the skin. This shade also left a very soft, satin sheen to the cheeks. Prim wore well for +8 hours before fading. (5/5)

Smashing is a light-medium, coral pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, smooth, silky but dense, which made the color more troublesome to apply. This shade had good pigmentation with multiple layers and blended out easily. Smashing lasted +8.5 hours before fading. (4/5)

Beaming is a light-medium, pink peach with fine silver sparkle, warm undertones and a satin sheen. The texture was rather dry compared to the other shades and had sheer color payoff once applied. The shimmer didn't seem to adhere with the powder, so for most skin tones this blush may end up looking more like a very subtle highlight, rather than a cheek color. Beaming lasted +8 hours before noticeably fading. (4/5)


Overall, while some of the shades didn't perform as nicely as expected, it was still an all around nice palette for an incredible value. You're getting five shades for under the price of two, full sized blushes. The Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush Palette is my most looked forward to palette of the year, but I feel as though this years may not appeal to all skin tones as it does feature lighter shades than the previous years—nevertheless, it's definitely worth checking out if you're a fan of the brand or blushes in general!
