            Comments about Tarte Cheek Stain:

            I didn't use blush very often until I tried cream blushes, and until I found Tarte's Cheek Stain (in Fearless), I was using DU Wawp's (not spelled like that but the system won't allow me to spell it correctly. Cheek Venom in 'Diamondback' (which is awesome and smells divine). I still love Du Wawp's (sp), but there's just something about the creaminess of Tarte's Cheek Stain, how it applies so smoothly, blends seamlessly, is 100% buildable, and lasts all day w/o any touch-up's. It is not difficult to apply at all; I use either: my Real Techniques Blush Brush, or damp Beauty Blender/RT's Miracle Beauty Sponge with ZERO problems. I put blush on after I lightly contour the hollows of my cheeks, and before highlighting the tops of my cheekbones, then I blend all of that together w/my RT's face brush.. Set with a tad translucent (NOT HD) setting powder, and BAM! Done. ;)

                Comments about Tarte Cheek Stain:

                I bought this blush looking for a little more natural color. I was skeptical as most make up doesn't stay on my skin for very long. Just a few dabs and I have the natural blush look I was looking for. The blush lasts all day which surprised me. It is a little sticky initially but eventually dries...for the most part. I just need to apply once in the morning for all day color. I also liked that the product is sealed with plastic wrap so you don't have any doubts that it's new!

                  I travel with this and it is very durable and reliable. I had worried about it melting or leaking. It is very easy to use and blendstore very well. No mess in contrast to powder.

                        You should use Tarte Cheek Stain within 6 months after opening it for optimal product performance. Unopened and stored in normal conditions, it can last up to 3 years.

                        We suggest trying the best selling shade, Flush. Flush is Tarte’s original sheer berry shade that will give you the long lasting glow you are looking for, without the extra shimmer. Dab onto the apples of your cheeks directly from the container and blend the edges for that fresh, “just pinched” look!

                        A:

                        All shades apply so sheerly that any would look lovely on you to enhance your complexion! Please reference the shade descriptions below:

                        Flush (the original sheer berry)
                        True Love (a romantic sheer watermelon)
                        Exposed - formerly Awakening (a fresh nude pink)
                        Tipsy (a playful sheer coral)
                        Natural Beauty (a classic rosy red)
                        Blissful (a flirty warm peach)
                        Blushing Bride (an elegant rosy pink)
                        Fearless (a powerful pink coral)

                        We especially love coral and peachy tones on those with yellow undertones! All shades can be tested at your nearest ULTA store:
