I was casually browsing around Sephora in Las Vegas back in 2013 and was deciding for approximately what felt like an hour what products I wanted to buy which I couldn't get back in the UK.  I came across the Tarte display and spotted the blushes everyone had been raving about known as the 'Amazonian Clay 12-Hour blush' ... I swatched a few shades and I opted for 'Frisky' as I tend to lean more towards pinky/coral shades. 
Could this be one of the best blush products on the market?  Well it's certainly up there with the likes of Nars.  The formulation is flawless and it lasts all day on the skin, it's everything I look for in a blush and it's definitely worth the money.

Just to clarify, I'm not one of those who likes to buy tonnes of blush products as I'm more of a lip and eyes kinda girl but when something is raved about so much I have to give it a try for myself to see if it's worth the hype.  The good thing about this product is that a little goes a VERY long way, you only need to use the smallest amount and you can build it up into layers if you want a more dramatic effect.  It does contain glitter but when applied onto the skin you can't see any noticeable particles, it gives off more of a sheen rather than sparkle.

This blush cost me $26.00 from Sephora and I do wish that I'd picked up a couple more shades purely because of the pigmentation and the fact that it's much cheaper to buy in the US.  The packaging is cute too, it includes a mirror and I love how each compact is a different colour to match the blush shade inside.

Now luckily for us UKers, you can buy Tarte from QVC but I checked online and theres only three blush shades available, check them out here.

(P.S please excuse the photography, just got a new camera and still trying to figure out the best settings, any advice please let me know!)
