        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.

              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.

                          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!
