This dead-of-winter February pallor isn't really doing our complexions any favors, so we're breaking out the big guns this month—and by "big guns" we mean Tarte's Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush, one of our favorite new products this season. Available in eight shades (we're fond of "Blissful," above, a warm peach on our medium complexion), Tarte's Amazonian Clay baked powder works on oily, dry, and dull skin—minimizing pores, hydrating skin, and improving skin's clarity and texture. You know how some blushers can look too powdery, dry, and fake? Well, this one doesn't—it looks blended, matte-but-not-too-matte, and all-around great all day.
In addition to the rosy glow of health it imparts on your cheeks, Tarte's Amazonian Clay blush also contains Vitamin C, Vitamin E, beeswax for protecting skin against the elements, natural mineral pigments for soothing, and the Amazonian clay itself helps balance skin health. What we also love? This blush lasts and lasts, so you don't have to keep reapplying throughout the day.
