Get ExposedI’ve had this Tarte blush in Exposed for a while now (and have used it quite a number of times already!) but have forgotten about it during my crazy accumulation stage. I’ve always been loyal to mi NARS (and a few Chanel) blushes before I fell into the rabbit hole of these Tarte ones. Got this during those times I still get easily swayed by hypes and raving reviews (oh thooose days…). Thankfully though, it proved to be a good (I even dare say great) change. I usually go for no-fail pink or peachy pink blushes so had you asked me then if I really “needed” Exposed, I would’ve said yes without batting an eyelash. That slightly dusky rosy mauve nude goodness looks so wearable every single day of the year. I am a bit skeptical about the Amazonian clay hoo-ha, though. Tried researching (a.k.a ze Google) about Amazonian clay and its properties but all I get are Tarte links. So, yes, I am taking the “Amazonian clay” claims of nutrient-filled, good-for-the-skin whiznizz with a grain of salt (90% dismissing it as pure marketing). Although, the product itself, I’d have to admit – is still worth talking about.
COLORTarte Exposed is simply described as ‘nude’. But for me, it’s not at all just that. It’s a warm rosy bronze shade that some describe as mauve, some plum – but it doesn’t show up like those at all on me. In fact, the slightly red tones are prominent on my cheeks so instead of looking ‘nude’, it appears pinker than I imagined it to be. On others, the warm bronze shades come out more making it look the warm, rosy bronze I so wanted to achieve.
LONGEVITYSo, I haven’t fully been observant when wearing this so I can’t vouch for the 12-hour claim, but I will say that it is quite long-lasting. A few NARS blushes don’t last longer than 5 hours on my cheeks, but this has gone from morning till the end of a work day with just an ever so slight fading.
TEXTURE & PIGMENTATIONQuite the same in texture with the NARS powders that are hard in pan. However, when swatched, they feel smoother and a smidgen creamier than some NARS ones that are powdery and a bit dry. You can see from the arm swatches how they seem to meld into the skin vs. just sitting atop it, which I guess is the reason why it seems to be more long-lasting. It has buildable pigmentation (which I prefer with powder blushes to avoid looking clownish), but color already shows up upon first swipe.
FINAL THOUGHTSDespite the pinkish tones that come out on my cheeks making it an un-rosy bronze that I didn’t want it to be, I’m enamored by Tarte blushes in general because they are easy to apply, hard to overdo, last long on the cheeks and look natural despite the frightening pan colors. I’d like to thank @USBeautyOutlet, owned by my equally-kikay friend from college Roseann and her sister, for sending over another Tarte Exposed blush that I have decided to give away to 1 loyal reader.
