Oh, Tarte, now you’re making me blush! Let’s start this last day of the workweek with a look at the entire line of Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes ($25 each), available now at Sephora stores and online.


I reviewed these a while back, and (long story short) I think they’re AWESOME!

Adrianne Palicki is Wonder WomanIntroducing another super Amazonian…

And this one goes by the name of Wonder Woman! According to MTV, actress Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights, Legion, Lone Star) has been cast as Wonder Woman in David E. Kelley’s new TV pilot for NBC. At 5-foot-11, the 27-year-old must have towered over her competition for the role!

How was your Thursday night, young lady? I’m sorry to report that I spent most of mine clutching my stomach in pain, thank you very much. I think I must have gotten food poisoning from something yesterday because I spent most of the evening on the couch with a glass of ginger ale. On the positive side, I was able to catch up on some of my reality TV guilty pleasures — Jersey Shore, Top Chef and Real Housewives, yay! πŸ™‚


I even managed to do something productive, too, by checking out a few pieces from the new bareMinerals Skincare Line launching next month.

If you’d like to hear more about the upcoming cleansers, moisturizers and treatments in the line, holla at me in the comments.

    Looks like I’m going to have to cruise down to Novato one of these days and check these out at Sephora. Tipsy looks amazing!

    Sorry about the food poisoning. Been there, done that, many times!

    How fun was the first half of Top Chef? Cookie Monster!!!!!

    • Karen says:

      Hopefully if you come down this way the weather will be better. πŸ™‚

      I was totally drooling over Dale’s sweet/salty cookie. NOM NOM! And wasn’t the finale shocking?

      What are you up to this weekend?

  2. Monica says:

    Those blushes are gorgeous! I have been curious about the Amazonian Clay trend since I heard about it and definitely need to make a trip to check these out.

  3. Kim says:

    Oh, I like Exposed very much! I haven’t seen Friday Night Lights, Legion or Lone Star but Adrianne definitely looks like WW to me! πŸ™‚ I’m going to keep my fingers crossed that series won’t go the way of the Terminator and the Bionic Woman.

    That’s awful about your tummy. I know a girl who had food poisoning and lost 15 lbs in 3 days. I seriously considered eating what she had as a diet option! πŸ™‚ Kidding. I’d probably throw up for 3 days and gain a pound, just as a cosmic lesson.

  4. DalaLuz says:

    Hope you feel better soon πŸ™ Hope you found some Jersey comfort πŸ™‚
    These blushes make me happy πŸ™‚

  5. gio says:

    I hope you feel better soon.

  6. i swatched a few of these in-store a few days ago and i LOVED how pigmented they are! they felt so smooth, too.

    also, i’d LOVE to hear more about the bareMinerals skincare line! i’m in need of a new cleanser and i’m doing my pre-purchase research :).

    I have Natural Beauty and LOVE it! I think I’m going to get Amused next.

    Poor you. I hope you feel better soon. Throwing up is just the worst.

  8. Wow I have to admit, I am super impressed at how crazy pigmented they look. -Almost- look more pigmented than the Rock and Republic ones?? Awesome!

  9. Nina says:

    i hope you feel better soon πŸ™‚

    those blushes look so lovely!

    and of course — happy friday! i wasnt able to do my usual grocery shopping during my lunch hour today. i was swamped, and only got the work cleared out a few minutes ago. oh well, i guess ill have to go tomorrow! πŸ™‚

  10. lexi says:

    I think she’s a much better choice to fill Lynda Carter’s red boots than Megan Fox…but what do I know?

    The last time I have used Tarte blush was there pushup tint stains – that’s still my favorite as far as a tint stain. I’ll have to check this new item out as I am curious.

    Okay, I don’t know how much longer I can take of the Situation – he’s a hater, especially when Vinny brings a girl home and he doesn’t!

    As much as Dale is a d*ck sometimes – I do root for him and his Filipino roots! =)

    Happy Friday πŸ™‚ I hope you will feel better. Food poisoning is difficult to deal with – and it’s even more difficult to find out what exactly caused it in the first place.

    Rest and take care. Have an awesome weekend Karen!

    P/s – I’m really tempted by these Tarte blushes, I recently discovered MAC 168 brush which is like a makeup-artist-in-a-brush πŸ˜‰

  12. Julie says:

    Ummm, YES please on the BareMinerals skincare line! I use their rareminerals treatment on my face at night, and it’s incredible. For reals, let’s hear more about that! πŸ™‚

  13. Aww, sorry about your tummy, I hate stomach problems! Hope you’re better.

    Good choice for Wonderwoman

    So enamoured with these Tarte blushes! I want Tipsy and Blushing Bride! Tarte has some awesome products for spring!

  14. Rebekah says:

    I’m terribly sorry to hear about the food poisoning. I had a go with it last week, as well. Bloody dreadful… I hope you feel better soon. πŸ™‚
    I’ve been debating adding one of these blushes to my arsenal. Your post sealed the deal!
    Thank you for these. Now, I just have to narrow it down from the five that I fancy to two.

  15. Rae says:

    Oh my god, these look SO incredible! Hope your stomach’s feeling better today :s

    I was thinking about getting these, but knowing that Tarte’s Friends and Family is usually 40% off, I’m gonna wait.

    I am loving Tipsy to go with all the peaches of spring and summer, but I’d probably use up more product by getting my all-rounders of pink in Exposed and Blissful.

    Does anyone understand why Blushing Bride looks like that, purple? I would guess it would be more neutral than that… just me?

    I’m not even a big fan of blush but these are beautiful. I love the packaging and the lovely, bright colors. Tipsy looks like my favorite so far.

    Hope you feel better soon!
