Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Tipsy

I've been wanting to repaint my room for three years. My chipped manicure is proof that it really needs to be slicked away (and, oh boy, have I wanted to do so). And a new notebook has been on my "need" list for a solid three weeks now and the necessity is growing at exponential speed. You could say I'm a procrastinator, but among the things that I want to do, but haven't--key point, here--is a desire but satisfaction in keeping them the same. I stepped out of my comfort zone a few weeks ago when I totted away from Sephora with the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Tipsy. You've seen my blush stash, not to mention chromas, and it's overwhelmingly intuitive that this is by no mean a necessity. But I did it, and I'm more than satisfied.

I'm no newbie to the Amazonian Clay realm; the variety in the shade Exposed sits in my stash. Nevertheless, it's either the color that doesn't have me sold or the fact that I have a dud because barely any pigment from that compact even attracts to the brush. Tipsy is different. Like its promoters promised, it is highly pigmented, which is by no means a con; I want as much of that color as possible. It's darker and less subdued than other peachy-pinks I have--making it totally justifiable, right? Although, it's stunning in the compact, I get stuck in a blush rut easily and I had to practically force myself to slap it on everyday. But after a solid three times of forcefulness, I did so mindlessly and I now haven't gone a day without it since its purchase. (That may be an exaggeration, but the days it has been void, I regretted my cheek pop choice.) The Tarte marketing team advertises their collection of powder blushers with a twelve-hour lasting power. I'd disagree, but I wouldn't say that I'm the best focus group either. Although I don't quite notice the punchy coral lasting on me until I hit the hay, I also sense my genetic rosy glow peeking through not too far after I apply it--which isn't exactly Tarte's fault.

This coral beaute has been on my wishlist for ages, and it's now been satisfyingly crossed off, but not because my desire was lessened. And I'm picking out a paint color for my walls next week. I'm slowly breaking the "procrastination" trend. 


  1. I am actually "forcing"myself to take this on a trip to Spain so that I start using it..! I am more in love with Blissful its predecessor in my stash and well loved! Its time to get Tipsy though ;-)

  2. Gosh, I absolutely love the look of this blush! I also agree that Tarte blushes don't quite last 12 hours but it's definitely good enough for me. NARS, Tarte, and Hourglass really win it in the blush department for me. xx

  3. I have the shade Dollface from this range and I'm super impressed by it! It's a brighter pink that can be worn sheerer or built up and I love it. It is such a go to blush for me.

  5. Darn you, now I'll probably have to get Blissful, too. Hehe, have fun forcing yourself to use Tipsy; it shouldn't be too hard.... (: x

  6. I haven't tried any Hourglass blushes, but their Ambient Lighting Blush Range...swoon. x

  7. I've seen that one and it looks stunning! x

  8. He he! :P You should! Its more effortless than tipsy if that makes sense!

  9. Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes may not last as long as 12 hours but their shade range makes me want to get them all! LOL

  10. I wish i could get my hands on any Tarte products, but in Spain they don't sell them (yet, I hope). This color is amaaazing and the packaging literally screams 'summer', don't you think?

    btw, i tagged you in my most recent blog post! it is the make up timer test tag and it would be amazing if you could have a look :)

    thanks for making my days with your posts!


  11. Ah, I'm so flattered! I'll definitely check it out. Thanks! x
