Maybe I just don't get it?

By Jessica P

from Kansas City

Comments about Tarte Cheek Stain:

I have tried this multiple times, and it keeps disappointing me. I think maybe I just only like powder blushes? It moves my foundation around when I apply it and doesn't last very long. It does smell great though if that means anything.

      Comments about Tarte Cheek Stain:

      I like a lot of pink on my cheeks and I hate powder blushes. One swipe and some blending and I'm good to go all day. I picked THE rosiest color, so I have to be careful and use a light touch. Perhaps I should have picked a less bright shade. But it does blend out to the shade I like.

          Comments about Tarte Cheek Stain:

          This was such an unexpected find. I went into Ulta to purchase another mascara by Tarte and saw this cheek stain on the shelf. I love that Ulta has testers for almost everything in the high end cosmetics. I would have never purchased this without being able to try it first. I absolutely loved it the minute I put it on. I purchased the Glisten. I just do a few swipes on each cheek and I'm ready to go. I have such dry skin that I hate any kind of powder cosmetics. They just dry me out all the more. I can't believe how natural this blush looks. I would have never guessed I would have liked a stick/cream blush.

                    A:

                    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:
