What is it?
According to Sephora, it is "A long-wearing, solar-baked blush that lasts up to 12 hours."
What it claims to do:
Infused with natural clay harvested from the banks of the Amazon River and naturally baked by the sun, this nutrient-rich blush benefits all skin types for a fade-free flawless finish for an amazing 12 hours. Inspired by Tarte's bestselling shades of cheek stains and lip tints, the colors range from soft to vivid to suit a wide variety of skintones. For oily skin types, Amazonian clay minimizes oil in and around pores to balance skin and keep product in place. Those with dry skin will benefit from the clay's nourishing and hydrating properties, which naturally restore skin's moisture.

I've been searching for an everyday blush that is pigmented, lasts long and can be worn during the day, but still have a tad bit of shimmer. This was mentioned by TiffanyD so when I saw it, I thought i'd give it a try. I really like that it is pigmented and shows on my skin, but its overpowering or clown like. It does last longer than other blushes I've used but I wouldn't agree that it lasts 12 hours, maybe six. In an air-conditioned environment.
This is what the swatch looks like on my arm, which has also been baking in the sun
One thing to note is when I first purchased it, it appeared overly glittery which isn't how it was at the store. When I started using it however, it became more subtle. Another cool thing is that the compact part where the blush sits actually swirls. Not sure what the purpose of that is, but it is interesting.
Would I recommend:
I would. Unlike my Beneift Bella Bamba, its more appropriate for wear during the day. Its not too shimmery and its just the right amount of color against my face, which is on the tan side. I have been wearing it everyday since I purchased it. One thing I don't like though is that its hard to apply with my fingers because the container swirls. It's odd, you have to check it out to understand. Maybe that is a good thing because I shouldn't be applying blush with my fingers ; p ... I need to get some makeup brushes and apply this bad boy like a pro!
Last but certainly not least:
