Swatch, FOTD - tarte Amazonian Clay Blush Natural Beauty

I recently realized I did not have any "red" blush in my stash, and that seemed so wrong!
(Yes, I can be genius like that in finding a reason to buy more makeup.)
You would think there are tons of options for the color, but surprisingly enough, it is not so easy to find a good red blush.
tarte Natural Beauty is one of the few available, and it seemed like a perfect choice since I have heard so many good things about the new tarte Amazonian Clay blush line.

This vivid red blush is housed in a red plastic case as each tarte Amazonian Blush comes in a case with similar color of its content.
This makes more sense if you have bigger blush collection like me since it is easier to find the colors from your stash.

Natural Beauty is clearly a red color but it has a good amount of pink thrown in, so the color is not that difficult for me to work with.
This finely milled blush is very pigmented so it requires a light hand to apply.
I use my e.l.f skunk brush and it works very nicely for this color.
I mean I don't look like a clown, thank God! :)

I have the old version of tarte blush in Verve which is still my favorite peachy pink blush to date, so I had no doubt about the quality of the new Amazonian Clay blush.
The pigmentation is pure and it stays that way for long hours.
I am just not sure if it lasts for 12 hours as tarte claims, though.

Here is how tarte Natural Beauty looks on me.

It is a matte color but gives a healthy glow to my complexion.

Overall, tarte Natural Blush is a great choice for flushed winter cheeks with excellent quality.
I would try more colors from the same range.
However, this red blush experience has made me want another one like Chanel Rouge
