Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Blissful - Review and Swatch

I bought this blush last year on a trip to Vegas. I wanted a nice coral peach blush that didn't have any shimmer and I love Tarte blushes so this was a no brainer....At first I thought this colour was a bit loud for me, but it isn't as long as I use a light hand when applying it. A lot of people get confused over whether to buy this blush, Blissful, or its more sultry cousin, Tipsy. Both are really nice by the way but the choice is really quite simple. If you are more fair, get Blissful which is described by Tarte as a warm peach and if you have medium or darker toned skin, opt for Tipsy which is a hot coral.

This blush is $31 Canadian and is $26 U.S. Not cheap I know, but I love my Tarte blushes! They last all day long and look great. They are smooth, easy to blend and always look fabulous. They contain great ingredients and they are 5.6 g. or 0.20 oz. each which is a good size. You only need a very small amount of product each time. Just looks at my picture above. I've barely made a mark on the pattern.

Tarte makes some of the best high quality blushes on the market and I can't recommend them enough. Blissful is so pretty, unusual and great for summer or anytime really. Here are two swatches:
