      Adorable packaging, smells good, great color! Blends really nice and super easy to apply. It does have a bit of shimmer but I don't mind that. I wish it were a tad more pigmented but all in all a great product. Fantastic summery look.

                      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!
