Tarte Amazonian 12-Hour Clay Blush: Amused

Swatches & Review

After my last haul, I told myself I was not going to buy anymore makeup, but that was definitely a fail. Yesterday when I went to the mall, I picked up Tarte's Amused blush. At first, I was not sure if I wanted it, but after trying it on in the store, I wanted it so my boyfriend bought me it. Amused is a bright pink blush.
Like always, the Tarte blushes packaging is the color of what the blush is supposed to be like.
Since it has been raining all day in the Bay Area, it was kind of hard to capture how bright this blush is. On the left, you can see the pink glowing from the pan. It is a bright pink!
I swatched it over two different lighting's. Even when it is a bit dim in the room, you can definitely see the pink glowing off my skin.

Amused is a bright cool-toned pink. It is very smooth and pigmented so this blush can be easily overdone. With a light-hand, this blush gives a very nice flush to the cheeks, which I really like.

Overall, I really like this blush. This blush kind of reminds me of NARS Gaiety & Desire, but Gaiety is a bit cooler and Desire is a bit pinker. It stayed on my for about 6-hours before seeing it noticeably fading from my cheeks. Although Tarte claims these to last 12-hours, the ones that I have tried has not lasted over 6 hours without fading. However, I am loving Tarte blushes, I'm becoming a Tartelette! In the beginning of the year, the only blushes I had were NARS, MAC, Urban Decay, Milani, Tarina Tarantino & theBalm, but now that it's the end of the year, I have about 9 Tarte blushes!

What do you think about Amused? Have you tried Tarte's Amazonian 12-hour Clay Blushes? What is your favorite Tarte blush?

  1. I love all of the Tarte blushes. The only product I don't care for by Tarte are the lip glosses. They can be sticky. I will never turn down a chance for a blush or eye shadow! Love them!!

    Take Care,

    1. I have never tried their eyeshadows! I want to though. All my blushes from them for now is mainly matte or a bit of a satin finish to them, but not the shimmery ones. I hope they come out with more mattes! lol

    2. I agree. I always get compliments when I wear Tarte. I also love Benefit products but for some reason when I wear Tarte I get stopped by gals (and a few guys) asking me what my blush or shadows are. I don't like my cheeks to be super shiny so I too love the Mattes.

      Take Care,

    3. Benefit blushes don't show too well on me :( I'm okay with a few shimmers, but not too shimmery/glittery blushes (Super Orgasm from NARS)

  2. I've only tried their blush in Tipsy but I found them super delicate so it broke right away :( Amused is so pretty! Tarte has the prettiest colours :)

    1. I bought Tipsy too, but I haven't tried it yet. I hope it doesn't happen to the ones I bought D: I like how you can easily take the pan out of the packaging, but I hate that it moves when I swipe my brush on it. They do! They're kind of up there with NARS :D

  4. I love these blushes! Amused was the first one I bought (I'm wearing it today, in fact). Exposed is another gorgeous one. I love how long-wearing they are!
