Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Glisten is packaged in the color-coordinated plastic packaging that is typical of the Amazonian Clay Line. The Tarte logo is raised in the plastic itself. The packaging isn't quite luxe, but it is cheerful and makes it easy to figure out which color is housed inside. The pan is embossed with a representative image of what I assume is the amazon river.
As its name suggests, Tarte 12-hour Amazonian Clay Shimmering Blush in Glisten is a long lasting blush. Whether or not the blush will last the specified twelve hours is debatable and depends on what kind of foundation, primer, and skin you have. The blush is also quite pigmented and the pan's texture seems to be fairly firm, not soft. The embossed image seems pretty hardy and should last through several uses.
Tarte Amazonian Clay Shimmering Blush in Glisten is the quintessential shimmery peachy pink. It turns out that I have various iterations of the same color in my collection. Tarte Glisten seems to be most similar in color to NARS Deep Throat blush, though it is a bit more pink and less peach. NARS Orgasm is even more peach with a golden sheen. Laura Mercier Sweet Mandarin is a bit darker and more coral. Chantecaille Coral (from The Coral Reefs palette) is lighter and more peach. Overall, Glisten is a tad more pink than the rest of the peachy pink colors in my collection.
Overall, I think Tarte 12-hour Amazonian Clay Shimmering Blush in Glisten is a beautiful blush. Every girl needs a peachy pink like this in her collection; that said, you may find that you already have a similar color in your collection! Thanks for reading!
