    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!!!

                    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.

                            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!
