Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush - Exposed
Tarte's Amazonian Clay Blushes can be found at Sephora and retail for $25 each. They're pricey but are great products. I think they're all, if not the majority of them, are matte and come with great pigmentation. There's a good range of colors, from bright to neutral. On me, the color lasts all day and I rarely see fading.
Exposed is a dusty rose color. It looks brown and neutral in the pan, but is one of those products that definitely adds color when you apply it. It adds a natural looking blush on me, adding just blush to my cheeks that doesn't look warm or bright or "not real". It's what I grab now when I have a stronger eye, or an eye look that doesn't mesh with the peach and coral toned blushes I typically reach for.
The product comes in a compact that comes with a mirror. A neat thing about the Tarte blushes is that you can pop out the pans. There's a little hole in the back that you can stick a paper clip into that will pop out a magnetized pan, and you can easily depot all of the Tarte blushes into a portable palette like a Z-Palette if you'd like to do so. It's nice because depotting can be a pain, and sometimes ruining the case of a pricey product can be annoying in case you do want to re-pot it.
If you're looking for a neutral blush, I'd totally recommend it. If you like blushes like Mac Tenderling or Gingerly this may be something you'd like to look into. :)
