    Comments about Tarte Cheek Stain:

    I only bought this product today, but I'm already very happy with it! I apply it with a make-up sponge to keep it sheer. At first I was surprised by how deep the color was, but it blended out perfectly on my fair skin. It gives my older skin a little "oomph", so I'll most likely be using it every day. It even gives my lips a little color which is an added benefit.

            The most appealing part of this products was the lack of an additional brush, however I found that I really needed a brush to blend it better. Overall I really love the product and the way it looks!

              I'm over 50 and read that going to a cream based is much better than powder. I feel this product gives me the right amount of color to my face and looks very natural. Lasts most of the day. I love the way it goes on with the right amount of transparency with color coverage.

                  My old 1 was almost gone & was so happy to find another. This 1 is smaller, but fits in my purse! Love the way I get a healthy, natural glow to my cheeks w/out the heavy look of powder. Plus, it doubles as a quick lip stain!

                        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:
