Tarte Airblush Maracuja Blush Review, Swatches, Photos

Tarte Airblush Maracuja Blush ($25) is now available in three shade selections directly from Tarte. Originally this blush launched in the Miracle of Maracuja QVC Today Special Value Set.

Those who didn’t indulge in this set will be happy to know they can now purchase the blush separately.

Let’s take a look!

All three shades, Shimmering Poppy, Shimmering Peach, and Shimmering Pink are available with the QVC Special Value Set so if you already own those sets, you own these shades. No need to rush out and indulge if you already have the colors!

Not everyone shops QVC and that’s quite ok as at least you can indulge in Airblush on its own outside of a limited edition gift set now.

Tarte Airblush is similiar in texture to Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush as it has that bouncy sponge feel that’s cream but not whipped in consistency.

The thing to love about Airblush’s formula is the fact that it blends so easily. Heavy handed or not you’ll get smooth, flawless color on cheeks no matter how little or how much you apply. The blush has such a lightweight feel and texture that it applies as if airbrushed on so it doesn’t emphasize uneven skin or larger pores. Fingers are great for applying however a fibre brush is equally good for a more flawless finish. The cream to powder formula does have a shorter wear for me at around two hours so do carry it with you for touch ups.

Overall, if you love Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush but desire better pigmentation from it I do suggest checking out Tarte Airblush. These have a natural yet pigmented finish with a photoshopped, soft focused finish and an easy to apply formula that even the heaviest of hands can sheer out for a very natural, pretty glow!

Available now at tartecosmetics.com.

    That peach looks mighty purdy. Next to Oxblood, that’s probably my second color obsession as of right now.

    Uh oh. That gorgeous packaging…those colors…I think I might need these. Even if I pretty much just switch between Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Dollface and Glisten.

    I tried these out at my local Ulta. The MUA said it’s best to apply these with fingers otherwise they tend to be too bold on most.


  • 9/18/12 20:11 Tiffany Martin:

    Wow, love both, but shimmering pink for me, and shimmering peach for you! You look so cute in that shade!
