My Tarte Blush Collection ♥ Review


Blush is, hands down, my favourite type of makeup.  I love the moment after my foundation is on, when I get to choose which blush I am going to go for.  Tarte has some of the best blushes out there.  The ingredients are great, they are formulated without Parabens and Sulphates.  They are long-lasting (12 hours, according to their advertising).  The majority of them are not too pigmented, and are highly buildable.  I like this because it helps to reduce the likelihood of me leaving the house with clown-face.







Mirage  This came in the Tarte Pigment of Imagination Cheat Set last year.  It was on sale, for about $12, so I could not pass it up.  It is a nice, soft, peachy pink shade.  This is not part of their regular range.

Flush  This is the new formulation of the shade Flush.  The old formulation was a darker berry colour, this one is more of a radiant orchid, pinky purple shade.  Which means, I could not pass it up!

Glisten  Glisten is a lovely 'shimmering pinky peach', as it is described in the Sephora website.  This one is a great shade for Summer.  Steer clear if you are not a fan of lots of shimmer!

Memorable  This came in the Tarte of Giving Collector's set that came out in 2013.  This blush is a nice mauvey pink shade.  It has a slight shimmer to it.  Unfortunately this one is not part of the regular range either.

Tipsy  This blush is described as 'coral' on Sephora's website, but this is straight-up orange.  It is gorgeous!  I love this blush, it is so unique, and great for Spring and Summer.

Exposed  This one is a cult-classic.  It is a nude blush, with a slight mauve tone to it.  I love this blush for those days where you have no idea how to coordinate with your lips.  It is so subtle, and pretty.

Natural Beauty  This shade is described as a 'muted strawberry red' on the Sephora site, and I think this is a great description.  I bought this blush after Essiebutton talked about it in one of her videos.  It goes great with a red lip.  Such an awesome Autumn/Winter shade!  Another very unique one.

Amused  I think this blush has been discontinued, as I purchased it when it was on sale on the Sephora site.  I also can't see it listed anymore on the Canadian site.  It is a bright pink, and I got it for $17.  This one is super pigmented, so I have to be careful when I apply it.

Adored  This is another bright pink, but with a fair shade of shimmer in it.  This is a very bubblegum pink.  This one isn't appearing on the Canadian site either!  I guess this one is discontinued as well.

Blushing Bride  This shade makes me crave Autumn sooooo bad!  It is a gorgeous shimmery plum shade.  This was reformulated last year, and no longer has shimmer in it, from what I understand.  I have googled comparisons online, and the shades look relatively similar, but I am not sure.  I love that mine has some shimmer in it though!

My favourites are Flush, Exposed, Natural Beauty, and Blushing Bride.  Those are the ones I get the most use out of.

I have had Captivating on my wishlist for over a year now, ever since I heard Ingrid talk about it in her May favourites video last year!  It is a gorgeous warm peach shade.

Do you guys have any Tarte blushes?  What are your faves, or which ones do you have on your wishlists?

  5. I have been eyeing tarte blushes forever, I just don't know which one to get! I've been eyeing exposed though. For me its the opposite...blush is always an afterthought or totally forgotten! Which is why I don't buy much of it :)
