Do You NEED Tarte Exposed Amazonian Clay Blush?

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed is a blush that I keep hearing a lot of buzz about. I’ve looked at it before, but didn’t think it was anything too special, as I was pretty sure I had something like it already in my Blush Fiend stash. But the buzz about it keeps circulating, and there’s only so long before  the blush fiend gives in.

Exposed is a warm, rosy bronze shade that gives a gorgeous, healthy, go-with-everything glow on the cheeks.

But how does it compare to the other rosy, pinky browns in my collection?

I thought I’d swatch them all for you so that you can see for yourselves!

To my eye, Tarte Exposed is pretty close to MAC Blushbaby, but it’s a tad rosier. It’s also close to MAC Brit Wit Cream Blush.

So, do you need Tarte Exposed Amazonian Clay Blush?

I think if you have MAC Blushbaby, then probably not. But the formula of Amazonian Clay Blushes is just so darn good-they last ALL DAY, work well on dry or oily skins, and they give you a beautiful glow that looks very natural. Plus, as you can see by my swatch, Amazonian Clay blushes go on very smoothly-my swatch of MAC Blushbaby is a little uneven.

I’ll leave it up to you to decide, as I’m still deciding whether to keep it or not. I’m still on the fence.
