Evidently, I stopped by a Sephora when I was in the states over the Canada Day/Independence Day long weekend.
Tarte claims that it has 12-hour wear without oxidization. I think it gives about 5-6 hours on my combination/oily skin during the Summer, and about 7-8 hours on my combination skin during the Winter.
The colour does not oxidize on the cheeks and it is true to the colour you see in the pan.
I absolutely live by Tarte blushes because they are long-wearing, do not oxidize, and are cruelty-free.
In addition, they are formulated without mineral oil, parabens, petrolatum, phthalates, sodium lauryl suflate, and synthetic fragrance. Instead, they contain beeswax, vitamin E, vitamin C, mineral pigments, and of course, amazonian clay.

I know a lot of people (including my girl-crush, Vivianna Does Makeup) have been raving about Tarte's Tipsy, but I prefer Blissful because it is a bit warmer and less bright. Blissful is good for anyone who wants to have a brighter blush that is still conservative enough for the office. Most people who rave and use Tipsy only lightly dab on it anyway, which actually gives a very similar, but slightly more orange, colour payoff as Blissful.
What are your favourite coral blushes?
