Tarte Amazonian Clay Shimmering Powder





I ordered this from QVC because it came with what looked like a phenomenal brush, all for less than the cost of just the product had I purchased it elsewhere. The powder is a shimmering champagne that I though would be perfect to highlight cheekbones and browbones, but I cannot get it to show up on me unless I really pack it on with the included sponge. Granted a highlighter should be subtle, but I literally cannot discern any difference whatsoever when I use the brush to apply the product. I'm seriously considering returning it. Keep in mind that I am quite fair--those with darker skin will have a greater contrast with the powder and may find it more noticeable.

You can see just how subtle it is here:

  3. Aww another Tarte disappointment! I debated buying this but I did not - I'm glad I didn't. I bought one of the Tarte Amazonian clay blushes but that's about all I'll be getting from Tarte for awhile!

  4. Thanks for your honest review. There have been lots of praise for the Tarte Clay Blushes but I too found them a bit chalky and not as pigmented. You should definitely return if it's not showing up for you :)

  5. Lisa likes this but her skin is darker and highlighters like this show up on her but not on me. I'm glad you returned it.

  6. What do you think about the Amazonian clay blushes? Have you tried those? I found them to be chalky as well

  8. Hi gal!

    This product is a highlighter, not a blush. I love mine! Wish I had seen this earlier. I would love to know how it might have served as a brightener on your skin. Looks in your photo like it did that.

    Anyhow, our makeup has to make us happy, right? :) Sorry it wasn't your cup of tea. On to the next lovely product...
