Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Glisten

Back in May I blogged saying I wish I were an American because you guys got Sephora by OPI.  Jealous!! Well yet again, I wish I was American because you guys get Tarte.  I'm turning a dark shade of green as I write this.  You don't get just any Tarte. . . you get the 24 Hour Amazonian Clay Tarte Blushes.  Us little British girls do not . . . sigh!

Back in Chicago I picked this up in their Ulta they have downtown.  I first heard of these before I went to the US on Alison's aka Amarixe blog.  She always spoke so highly of them and when I eventually made it to US soil they were on my 'to be checked out list'.

None of the blushes by Tarte are a disappointment when i was swatching them in Ulta, I found it difficult to pick just one.  In the end I opted for Glisten, the pinky-peach of the clan.  It is a warm colour and gives you a glow,  it isn't one of those colours that is too cold on the cheeks.

The colour has a similar resembles NARS Orgasm which I don't have - fortunately.  The blush itself has a hint of golden shimmer running through it.  Nothing too disco-bally - just enough to give you a natural healthy glow.

What I love most about the Amazonian Clays is the pigment.  The colour pay off is just amazing and lasts a long while.  Not sure of the 24 hour longevity, as I don't wear my makeup that long, but it certainly last throughout the working day.  As the colour pay off is so good you can start off quite light with this and build it up to your desired look.

The packaging gets a thumbs up as I like the compact design with the mirror.  Very handy for your makeup bag.  Also the colour of the packaging is the same as the product inside, so if you have more than one blush in your collection you can just see the colour and you'll know which one your looking for.  I think it's a good idea, saves looking at the names like you have to do with most other brands.

My only annoyance is you cannot get it in the UK. Sad face!  I would glady buy more of these blushes, but for $25.00 I would prefer to see them in person before buying over the Internet.  Or I'll just have to wait until I go to the US next year. But for now I am happy to love my one and only Glisten.

Do have a favourite blush?  Do you own any of the Amazonian Clays?  Do you have any recommendations that I should try?
