        Comments about Tarte Cheek Stain:

        This is the easiest color I have ever used. Don't let the word stain scare you. I don't like lip stains and wasn't sure I would like cheek stain, but this blush goes on silky, blends well, layers for just the right glow and stays on all day. Never looks dry and cakey like powders can. I have this in both Fearless and Exposed, one is a corally pink and the other is more a fleshy pink. I love to do a slightly bolder eye and try to keep my face natural.

          Easy to apply, buildable to depth of color that suits each individual. Portable, no mess application. Use it daily with same color powder blush on top - lasts all day.

            Looks natural but I thought it would disappear in a short time. I was pleasantly surprised that it stays for a long time. I just "pounced" it on and blended just a bit. Looks totally "me" only better.

            It is a really amazing product and i use it everyday. This particular color of the cheek satin is also really natural. My only problem with it is that it is hard to rub in. It comes out fine as long as you blend it with your finger and not with a brush.

              Comments about Tarte Cheek Stain:

              I'm obsessed with these cheek stains! I'd always used powder blush, but I'm finding that the cheek stains are much more natural looking and stay on all day. I own all 8 shades, and love them all. My favorites are Flush, Blissful, Fearless, and Tipsy. I've found that Blissful, Exposed, and True Love are best for work and every-day use since they are very natural-looking and don't have shimmer as some of the other colors do. Fearless is beautiful, very flattering, and natural-looking. Blushing Bride is pretty, but it shows up a little "Barbie Doll" pink on my skin tone, so I have to be careful with application. Flush and Tipsy are beautiful for a night out or whenever you want a bolder look. Tipsy is very shimmery though, so I skip highlighter and go very subtle on the eyes when I wear it so I don't look too sparkly (I'm still kind of traumatized from the days I used to over-do it with the roll-on glitters in middle school). The Natural Beauty shade is a little too much on my fair skin tone, so I might end up giving that one to my sister who has a medium skin tone so it would probably work perfectly for her.

                Comments about Tarte Cheek Stain:

                So to start, I'm skin tone NC35 in the mac line, and I have dark brown hair and almost black eyelashes/eyebrows. I chose Blissful after going in-store and swatching a lot of the Tarte line (and a few colors not showing up on my skin); Blissful looks natural and not too yellow or orange, which was important to me. I'm not a daring blush individual.

                The good news is that the swatches on my arm... they lasted forever. So did the stuff on my face, which is awesome. A con to this may be that it is slightly sticky when applying; either apply before your foundation dries or after it is all very dry, as otherwise, it might mess up your foundation/concealer.

                A downside for some people is the smell; I swatched on my hand, then did dishes and washed my hands twice, and the smell was still there. It's two hours later, and the smell is also still there... and so is the color. I don't mind the smell - it smells so good, I could eat it! - but if you avoid scented products, definitely go in store and try it out before ordering/buying.

                I would buy it again, for sure, but this isn't going to be my go-to blush, just the blush I use for staying power. I still prefer powder for times when my makeup doesn't have to last through a downpour and still be kicking.

                  Comments about Tarte Cheek Stain:

                  This is my favorite beauty product of all time! It is so versatile and you can use it on both your cheeks and lips. You can use the edge of it to create a slight flush of color, or go bolder and use the head of the stick. I swear that after I apply it, my skin feels soft as well. It can make your whole face glow, and sometimes it's all I put on because I feel completely done with just this. Some people complain because Tarte reduced the size of this product, but I find that in this packaging the product is easier to use. The size really doesn't matter because this could possibly last FOREVER.

                    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.

                  • Q:

                    Hello...I could really use your help choosing a color. I have medium toned skin, with an olive undertone and hazel eyes with warm blonde hair. 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!

For olive undertones, we especially love peachier, warm shades like Blissful and Tipsy (your instincts were right on the money!). Please note that all shades can be tested at your nearest ULTA store, if you prefer:
