The array of enchanting hues will suit every occasion, outfit, and mood with the perfect flush of pretty.
Tarte Amazonian Blushes have been raved about from many people and I totally understand why. These blushes are nicely pigmented, have a great staying power and blend easily what else can I ask for? I myself have never tried the full size blushes from Tarte but I think I will have to now because I have been wearing them every single day since I received them. The full size version of these blushes are 0.2 oz for $36.00 CAD. They are double the size of the mini versions and for the most part when companies release a set of mini versions it can lack in quality compared to the regular sizes. I know that isn't the case with these blushes because form what I can see they are very high quality. No need to worry about sacrificing quality to save some money.
All of the shades are very nicely pigmented in my opinion. I do have to layer the pink shade Magic to achieve the intensity I want, but besides that I have no problem with the pigmentation.
Instead of adding adding Angelic which is suppose to be the highlighter shade I still think Tarte should have included a regular blush color, I really like Angelic and it is a gorgeous color I just don't reach for it that often, I do use it as a lid color though.
My favorite part about these blushes is the staying power. I mean I know when I apply these blushes I don't have to worry about reapplying them throughout the day which isn't the case with a lot of blushes. Not only do they have a good staying power but they are so easy to blend out. In fact I have never had blushes blend out as effortlessly as the Tarte blushes. I apply it with an angled blush brush like the Mac 168 tapping off any excess. These blushes are not powdery which is another bonus.
Surprisingly this is my first time using any makeup products from Tarte and I can officially say I am hooked. I think this set is a great deal even though it's half the size of the regular blushes. After wearing these blushes I can honestly say I would definitely buy the full size shades. The staying power really impressed me.
