Battle of the Blushes: I Need Your Advice!




For some time now, I've been finding that blush breaks me out. I've been trying different drugstore brands, but after being let down time and time again, I'm ready to splurge.

I have extremely acne prone skin, so what I need most is something that wont break me out. So far, my online research has lead me to choose between these two products:

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush:

It seems that online, this stuff is frequently given the title of the best blush in existence. I've read that although it may not last 12 hours, it's extremely high quality. Tarte claims that the amazonian clay does something to balance complexion as well, which is what I'm most interested in.

What I worry about is that I've never tried a Tarte product before. If the amazonian clay blush ends up reacting badly with my skin, I've wasted a significant amount of money ($31 at Sephora).

Bare Minerals Blush:

I've been using Bare Minerals products for years, so I know that this blush won't break me out-  it's a very safe choice (and being $24 at Sephora, it's priced significantly lower than the Tarte blush).

The only issue is that I really, really want to try something new. I want to start trying new brands, but have been so hesitant because my skin is holding me back.

This is where you come in.
I need you to comment or tweet me your thoughts: Tarte or Bare Minerals blush!?

Keep in mind that my biggest concern is acne. I'm not worried about choosing a colour right now- that will come later. Right now, I just want to know which blush might be better suited for my skin.

Comment here on the blog, or tweet me your opinion here.

  1. Hey i think you should try the tarte blush, I have acne prone skin as well and it doesn't break me out. I know you say that the bare mineral one doesn't break you out but for me it does so I'm not a big fan of that one. Hope that helps you a little! :)

    Just started following you, would love for you to do the same! :)
