        Comments about Tarte Cheek Stain:

        For years I refused to wear blush because I looked like a clown with pink cheeks. A consultant at Ulta recommended I try this -- all I can say is I LOVE it!! With my skin tone, it looks like a natural, healthy glow on my cheeks instead of "makeup". It's soooo simple to apply and blend. I travel a lot and this is a nice small size to fit into my bags, but it's not a tiny bit of product either. LOVE IT!!!

          As I get older I find that less is more, this blush is perfect ! Most days I wear tinted pore minimizer/foundation base. When I wear Tarte SEA, Chanel or Lancome foundation(It works great with ALL.

              First trip to ULTA I was helped by a guy who did not show me this product, even though I specifically requested a stick blush. He made me look like a Clown - horrible! I gave ULTA a 2nd chance and was shown this product. It does look natural and I have gotten used to the slight stickiness of the product.

                    Comments about Tarte Cheek Stain:

                    I turned 50 this year, so I really need something to warm up my complexion and make me look alive. Powder blushes don't work on over-50 skin, but cream blushes are hard to find, at least in the warm, coral type of tones that look best on me. I've tried many, many blushes that didn't work, and I was ready to give up on wearing blush at all. This blush seemed to have it all, but I was nervous about purchasing it because of the mixed reviews. Well, I took a chance and I LOVE it! The color is perfect for brightening up my face without looking garish. And it has a little luminescence, so I don't feel like I need to use highlighter anymore - I get a 2 for 1 with this product. I actually threw away my drawerful of blushes and this is now my one and only perfect blush.

                            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!
