Comments about Tarte Cheek Stain:

I loved this product because it wasn't too shimmery and too pink like a lot of creme blushes seem to be. It is easily blended into your foundation or BB cream (I use BB because my skin is sensitive). It didn't give me any irritation. It was a little sticky at first, but if you dust it with some finishing powder that goes away. It does not dull the shimmer either. I love this product for a daytime glow!

This product is cruelty free also!

        I absolutely love this blush, I own 4 and I use them almost daily. The color isn't harsh and it blends so beautifully. I use it over my foundation by either swiping it directly on my cheek and blending the edges, or with a foundation brush. The colors are so versatile the peaches, pinks, and burgundy's all blend effortlessly.

          Comments about Tarte Cheek Stain:

          Love the cheek stain! This is my first time utilizing this specific color because Tarte discontinued my "go-to" color, but I like it just as well. For a woman in her 40s, the cheek stain is a good blush alternative since it give your cheeks just the right amount of a "hint 'o moisture" for a little bit of a dewy look (which I love).

            I have a few other Tarte cheek stains, however Tipsy is my new favorite. I wear it every single day and it can be easily layered with other blushes or bronzer (my typical combo). It is easily applied...never looks makeup-y or fake and never breaks me out.

                    I bought the Tarte Cheek Stain in Exposed. It is a very pretty, natural-looking color for my light-to-medium-toned skin. It's easy to apply; I just "bounce" it on my cheekbones and then blend with my fingers. I also use my fingers to apply a little in areas I want to highlight (forehead, nose, chin, etc). It has a little shimmer but not too much. I sometimes put it on top of my final powder, or add a little powder over the top. I am very pleased with this 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!

                        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:

                      I Have Been Using The Tarte Cheek Stains For Years And Most Recently , The Color "Awakening" Which Is Now Apparently Name Changed To "Exposed" (Better Name For The Color As It Is Very Natural, Good Call On The Change) Anyhow...I Am Curious As To The New Size. My Current Short, Chunky Tube (The Old Style) Says That It Is 0.5Oz On The Container. I See Here In The Product Description That The Size Is Still Listed As .5Oz So I Am Confused As To Why People Are Saying The New Packaging Has Reduced The Size. Can You Please Clarify The Amount Of Product In The New Style Of Packaging? And, As A Quick Sidenote, This Product Lasts So Long For Me That A Thinner, More Purse Friendly Shaped Packaging Is Fine With Me, Even If It Does Hold Less Product. I Have Had My Current Container Of "Awakening/Exposed" For 18 Months Now And I Am Not Exaggerating WhenIaSay That It Still Appears New Even After Nearly Daily Use!

I usually wear pinky/brown/earthy/warm blushes and lip colors most of the year, but have worn peach tones in the summer. I'm leaning toward Blissful or Tipsy, but wanted to get another opinion. I appreciate your help and look forward to hearing from you soon!
