It is so funny to think that a year ago, I went into Sephora looking for Tarte Exposed blush, but found several other nude blush "dupes" and ended up with Nars Lovejoy. (see post here). I don't know why I ended up with Lovejoy (although it is a beautiful shade), but the Tarte Exposed swatch at Sephora, at the time, wasn't very pigmented and needed several swipes to get full color. (Looking back, the pan must have been oily from people's fingers or had gotten wet from brushes that were freshly clean). Regardless, it completely threw me off from buying it.
A few months ago, I bought Tarte Exposed on Ebay for a very affordable price. I swatched it again, and fell in love. It is definitely rosier then I last imagined and has become my perfect "everyday blush."
Exposed is a matte, rosy, pink nude blush. There is something about it that makes it the perfect colored blush for me.
Tarte Amazonian clay 12-hr blushes have 0.20 oz of product for $26. As far as formulation, they are very smooth and pigmented; a little goes a long way. On me, it lasts about 8-10 hours depending on the weather and the kind of day I am looking at.
