          Blush was exactly what I was looking for. Gave me a natural flush. Unfortunately the packing is push up, so you have to press on the product to push it down, not a well thought out design.

              I just went back and bought another cheek stain, because it looks amazing! I absolutely love the colors, and it lasts all day! It also has a nice scent to it, which is an added bonus. I feel as if I can have more control over the amount of color versus powder blush. I am looking forward to purchasing every color in this line!

                    I purchased the Tarte "Blushing Bride Wedding Day Essentials" set that included a full size cheek stain (in Blushing Bride). This is my first Tarte Cheek Stain and I love it! I was afraid it would be too dark for me (I think the picture online is a little misleading, it's not that dark)...but you just dab some on and blend with your fingertips. Perfect! Very natural looking glow. I do like and have been using for years, Benefit's "BeneTint", in the original rose color, but I found that I had more control and a better result with this Tarte product. I'll be buying more colors!

                            You should use Tarte Cheek Stain within 6 months after opening it for optimal product performance. Unopened and stored in normal conditions, it can last up to 3 years.

                            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!

                            There has been no change to the amount of product included in the tube; it is still 0.5 oz.!

                          I have very light skin with cool undertones. I have dark brown hair and blue eyes. What shade would suit my skin tone the best? I noticed many of the shades are geared to the warmer skin tones.

                            All shades apply so sheerly that any would look lovely on you to enhance your complexion! You may like Exposed, which is a neutral nude-pink that looks great on all skin tones. Blushing Bride, a rosy pink, is also a great option for those with cool undertones.
