    Comments about Tarte Cheek Stain:

    i got this blush to use during the winter months, when i am more prone to dryness. superb! longer lasting than nyx's. i love how easy it is to blend; color does not migrate; buildable color too. I was concerned that it might break me out into a pimply hive, but it did not!

          Comments about Tarte Cheek Stain:

          I have been a little intimidated by cream blush. I have somewhat oily skin, and didn't want to contribute to "sheen". But for the winter, this blush is perfect. Choosing a color was a bit tough, but the shade I settled on (a very subtle mauve) seems to flatter, and doesn't appear streaky or unnatural. I love the dewy result...just enough "sheen" without being too glowy. It feels nice on my skin, is easy to apply and blend, and seems to last well. On a few occasions I have "set" with a powder or powder blush to blend. A touch pricey, but better than other drug store cream blushes I have tried.

            Comments about Tarte Cheek Stain:

            I'm pale...I wouldn't even describe my complexion as fair, I really am that pale! So I depend on a blush to bring my face to life. I've been using the "old school" method of blush--blush brush and a mineral based, powder formula. While I always apply a moisturizing SPF before my beauty routine, I do not wear liquid or powder foundation. Regardless, I have found that, despite the formula I use, my powder blush lacked staying power and would wear off before the end of the day...leaving me pale and tired-looking. I've been looking into cheek stain for a while. After carefully considering a multitude of different brands and paraben-free formulas, I finally decided to give this one a try. I cannot begin to express my immense satisfaction with this product. Yes, it is a bit pricey, but I can assure you, it is worth every single penny. Not only does it actually last, but it doesn't clog my pores like the powder blush had a tendancy to do (I'm prone to cystic acne in the areas that I apply the powder blush). Application is quick, easy, and completely fool-proof. Since using this product (about 2 weeks), I haven't had a single acne flare up. My co-workers have also remarked that I look well-rested and have a healthy glow. As a reference, I'm a brunette with green eyes and pale, pale skin and I ordered the "true love" shade. AMAZING product!!!

                I love this. I had been eyeing it for a year now and finally bought it and it's well worth the money. I got the "flushed" color and in person just looking at it, I thought the color was too purple-ish for me, but when i put a dab of it on, it looked perfect on my skin! It's consistency is great and moisterizing and didn't fade much throughout the day. I like how it gave me a natural color. Great buy, will buy again when I run out. I suggest trying all the colors out on your face in the store to see which one is right for you. The one I thought I would like turned out to look the worst on me, but after trying them out, I picked the perfect one for my skin.

                  Ive been on the search for the perfect blush that wasn't too pink/red. This was the first time I've used a cream cheek stain and its better than a powder. I have really oily skin and this stays on for a very long time. This blush came in a set and im so glad I bought it.

                  Its the perfect pink/nude color that gives just enough flush on your cheeks to look natural. Although a little pricey, they give just enough to last you a long time. A little goes a long way.

                      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!
