    I have bought it for many years, but now I hear Tarte will stop making it. Please let me know if I will be able to purchase somewhere besides my usual place--Ulta.

      Comments about Tarte Cheek Stain:

      You don't need a lot to get a nice color. It's a fresh color, easy to blend out, nice for a natural flush. I really wanted a dewy look and I got it! Powder blushes often sink into my pores and ages me, so I'm really happy to find this. I wish they made this in a travel size cause I probably won't be able to use the whole thing before it expires- that's my one complaint.

        Comments about Tarte Cheek Stain:

        Great investment in your beauty routine. I have had the same cheekstain for over 2 yrs & still have 1/3 left. I use Fearless under my KVD pdr blush 'Mickey &Mallory', but wear it alone often. Beautiful, easy to blend using a RT's blush brush. I take product from the stick using my brush then apply. Easily builds. Goof proof. Smells devine. Great for younger girls/beginners as well. Does not disturb makeup underneath if you use a light hand & build. Highly recommend.

            Love this blush so much! I was looking for a deeper color for fall. It's easy to apply, blends well, looks super natural even on my fair skin and lasts forever! No need to retouch. I'll definitely buy this again and will probably try some other shades

                  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!!!
