            Comments about Tarte Cheek Stain:

            I LOVE Tarte's Natural Beauty blush stick!! It gives the perfect flush of color while looking natural. It looks REALLY red and dark, BUT when you put it on it is perfect because it has a sheerness to it. It is that look you get when you have gotten some sun and you have a healthy looking pop of color. It is awesome!!! Blends well, but after running around all day, I did find the need to reapply just a tiny bit before going out for the evening. Otherwise, it is a favorite!!!!

            I am in my late sixties and was looking for a blush that didn't settle in my fine lines. Well I found it in Tarte Cheek Stain. I bought the pinky-coral color and loved it so much I went back for the Blush, a sheer berry color. The stains give a sheer, natural blush. If you want a more dramatic look, just add a little more. So easy to use and small enough to take in your purse. No brush required! Can't wait to go back and get other colors in the collection!

            Comments about Tarte Cheek Stain:

            I love the color of this product and it actually smells good too, but I wish i loved the product itself.

            I dabbed it on my cheeks and blended it with my fingers, but as soon as i lightly blend, it disappears! I end up looking like I didn't put any blush at all. It also feels sticky as I'm blending. Not sure if I'm using this wrong, but its annoying that i have to layer on a lot of product to get that flushed look. The only good thing I liked about this product is that it gives me a dewy look on my cheeks and it looks hydrated.

                    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:

                • Q:

                  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!
