Review: Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Captivating

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Captivating3

Tarte recently re-released their Amazonian blush in the shade Captivating. This shade was previously sold as part of the Aqualillies for Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Eye and Cheek Palette from their Summer 2013 collection. This shade is now a permanent addition to their line of blushes.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush is said to be “A long-wearing, solar-baked blush that lasts up to 12 hours. Infused with natural clay harvested from the banks of the Amazon River and naturally baked by the sun, this nutrient-rich blush benefits all skin types for a fade-free flawless finish that lasts an amazing 12 hours. Inspired by Tarte’s bestselling shades of cheek stains and lip tints, the colors range from soft to vivid to suit a wide variety of skintones. For oily skin types, Amazonian clay minimizes oil in and around pores to balance skin and keep product in place.”

I’ve never tried Tarte’s blushes so I was really excited to try out this corally peach shade. The packaging is cute yet sturdy and is very easy to open. I like that it includes a full mirror as well. This blush is very opaque and blends beautifully. It is very creamy and buttery which I think is absolutely amazing! I’ve always been a Nars blush fan but I noticed that some of their shades blend easier than others. I haven’t tried any of Tarte’s other shades of blushes but if they all blend like this, then I may have to try out their whole line!

This blush really exceeded my expectations! I didn’t really think that it would last 12 hours but this lasted between 14 and 15 hours on me without any fading! This also didn’t emphasize any fine lines or pores. Captivating is described as being a “warm peach.” I think it is the perfect combination of peach and coral, which are my two favorite shades for blush. There is a small amount of sheen when swatched, but it didn’t show up on my cheeks at all. Because of how pigmented this is, you only need such a small amount to get great color pay-off. $26 for 0.2 ounces of product might seem like a lot, but this blush will last you so long! I highly recommend checking this shade out!
