Considering this is one of the very first cosmetic pieces I've ever purchased (cue sweet memories before makeup became an obsession) I'd say it's about time I did a proper review on tarte's "blissful" for you all!
I know I had included it in my "Pretty In Peach" post (extra gold stars to anyone who remembered it was even in my "2012 Best In Beauty" post!) but I really do think that this blush is gorgeous enough to warrant a post of its own.
"Blissful" is, to put it as simply and beautifully as possible, a matte warm pink; there's no shimmer, no sparkle, no crazy undertones or gimmicks, just pure pink bliss (pun not intended but I like it so I'm keeping it there).
I haven't allowed Galileo to photobomb any pictures recently so I figured I would include a couple this time around since they were so darn cute... "blissful" matches his little pink nose almost perfectly!!
You can also see that I've put a decent dent in this blush; if you've ever worked with a tarte Amazonian clay blush you would be well aware that you just dab your brush onto the powder (no need for rubbing or swirling) and you have enough pigment for both cheeks. So for there to be this much wear on the pattern of "blissful"... well, I'm pretty darn proud to say the least!
I'm really not kidding when I say this is one of my all-time favorite blushes. If I could only pick one blush to work with for the rest of my life I would probably pick "blissful" because of the no-nonsense natural beauty look that it lends my cheeks.
So there you have it!
Hopefully my feelings have been adequately expressed for this blush, though, for those of you who have been in love before (with a cosmetic product or otherwise *ahem*), you're probably aware that words will never be enough.
Have you tried tarte's "blissful"?
Love it? Hate it (say it ain't so...)?
What's your favorite blush of all time?
