My take on Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Tipsy:

Packaging: The blusher comes in a round pan kind packaging with its color exactly matching the blusher shade. List of ingredients along with other information is mentioned in the transparent carton provided and shade name along with net quantity is mentioned at the back of the pan. A round mirror is lodged at the inner cover of the pan. Beautiful pattern of Amazon river is drawn over the blusher surface.

Shade: ’Tipsy’ is a true coral blush which looks stunning in pan and looks equally good on my NC 42 skin tone. It has right amount of pink and orange in it, usually the coral blushers I find in India are more on the side pink family which I do not prefer except Kryolan blushers. Tipsy is a great choice for you guys if you are looking for a true coral blush.

Pigmentation: This blush is moderately pigmented which I prefer over highly pigmented ones as one would have control over application and won’t go overboard with it. So yes its good for beginners too. It blends beautifully giving nice coral hint to my cheeks.

Texture & Finish: The texture of the blush is soft but firm, so there is no product wastage while picking up the blush with brush. Its a matte blush with embedded coral microshimmers which gives a coral flush of color with a hint of a sheen. It can be drying for people with dehydrated and matured skin.

Staying Power: It has incredible staying power of 6 hours + on my combination skin without any skin primer. So its staying power can be enhanced further with a primer and makeup fixing spray. Even after 6 hours I could see coral tint on my cheeks.

Price vs Quality: Qualitywise it’s a decent blush with incredible staying power and moderate pigmentation. However, its sold at $ 26 which is an exorbitant amount for this blush. I would rather advise you guys to splurge on Nars or Mac blush than on this.
