Pinch Of Color!!
I love Tarte products and their cheek stains are no disappointment! It gives that perfect just pinched color and with bit of a dew. I love it, it's very natural as long as its blended well. And it's perfect for when you just want that pop of color on the go :) I also use it on my lips! But if you are planning on using any type of powder on your face do skip because it can cake a bit.
I have a mini size from a kit. This works great when I want to do a bold eye and lip, but don't want my skin to look dead. I dab it onto my cheeks, then blend it in with a small duet fiber face brush. This gives a glow and slight color to my cheeks without it being a very noticeable blush. I love this because I'm so pale and contour or bronzer looks like dirt on my skin. This gives my face some warmth when I don't want anything over the top. It has great staying power. It stays on the full 12 hours I wear my makeup.
I got this in a sample box, and I was hesitant to try it because of his dark it looks at first glance, but once you try it, its GORGEOUS. It says it doubles as a lip stain, but once I tried it I took it right off because it tasted horrible. :P
But its an amazing cheek stain! My favorite tarte product by far!
I received this in a bloom box, prior to trying this out I was not a huge fan of cheek stains. I tended to be very old school about my blush and would use a lipstick. This says that you can use it on your lips if you want to, but you should not want to. It's the worst taste in the world, and it doesn't work like a lip stain.
But, on your cheeks you can't go wrong with this. I got a deluxe sample and use it at least 5 times a week and have had it for about 6 months. So, I am going to assume that purchasing a full size would be well worth the cost of the product. You will probably tire of the color before you run out.
fresh, dewy, natural looking blush...i'm obsessed!
i bought this product in december 2007 for the first time, and immediately loved the way it looked and felt...i had never used anything except for a powder blush. now i prefer my blush in a stick form, especially this awesome gel stain! i love the colour (i want to get all the shades!), love the way it glides on and is easily blended, and i also love the way it looks...it's very natural and fresh looking...it doesn't LOOK like you're wearing blush, which is the point, right?! :) also, i was super excited when i found out that tarte uses vitamins and antioxidants in their products, so every time i put it on my face i feel that i am doing good for my skin. sometimes at the end of the day, you may need to reapply...but who cares? the product itself lasted for a very long time, i seriously used it for a couple years before it was finally gone. definitely worth the money...
Great but can get sticky
I love this stuff. It is the perfect stain for me. I can use it very lightly or make it heavier depending on the look i want. It smells great. I always get complements on it. I even bought one for my 12 year old sister, because i don't think it makes you look trashy. :)
I always tried bush but it just seemed to make me break out. Then my mom gave me this cheek stain, and i fell in love. This is the best product I've used for blush. I love the color and how it lasts so long. I've had the same one for over a year now. I love this product and will continue to use it.
I love this cheek stain. It gives just enough pazaaz . Chic, fresh and it adds sparkle to every day makeup. I like the natural tones this stain has to offer. I often use it as a highlighter under my brows or as a lip stain. It has a lovely silky texture.
