Tarte Amazonian Clay Matte Bronzer in Park Ave Princess -- Mini Review, Pictures & Swatches

I'm going make this review short and sweet! Well... not too sweet because I'm definitely NOT in love with this bronzer.

Tarte's description:

"Product Performance: This fragrance free, talc free powder bronzer delivers sunkissed radiance in a lightweight finish without clogging your pores. It blends and builds effortlessly to your desired level of natural-looking bronze and its high sheen compact is perfect for achieving an on-the-go glow. Plus if you’re looking to define your cheekbones and jaw line, this bronzer also works as a contour powder because it’s the perfect natural matte shade to add depth and it effortlessly blends."

In my humble opinion this bronzer is way too orange to be used as a contour powder. In fact, it is way too orange to work as a decent bronzer on fair skin... take a look at the swatches below!

Adorable packaging
Long wear -- about 10 hours

Too orange
Applies somewhat cakey

Bronzer is a funny thing -- on one gal it will look gorgeous and natural, then orange and artificial on another. This product did not work for me, but I've heard others rave about it. I much prefer Benefit's Hoola Bronzer and recommend it to ladies with fair and light skin!

I may be selling this in an up coming blog sale, so keep an eye out for that if you are interested!


Available at Ulta or Sephora and retails for $30!

  1. Wow - thanks for this post.. I nearly bought that product! Definitely too orange for me as well! Keep up the great blogs - I love them!

    1. I'm glad I could help!! And thank you :)

  2. I can definitely see the orange under-tones. I will be staying away from this product, but on another note I'm loving that MAC Harmony Blush swatch!!

  3. LOVE THIS POST! Soo cool, I am about to follow you. Maybe you could head over to my blog and follow me too? PS- Love the design of you blog!

  4. Ahh such a shame :( I wanted this sine Sephora has a mini one for sale but now I'll pass.

    1. I think the mini one they have for sale has shimmer in it... which is even worse than this one!

  5. Shame It definitely seems to orange which is a pity for us pale girls! So jealous you can get tarte in US always admiring their blushers wish they did it here! x

  6. Pity that this bronzer is orange for fair girls! I'm currently loving NYC Bronzer in Sunny! Haven't tried the other high end bronzers though!
