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!
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...
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.
Fake that "celebrity glow"
When I want that "Celebrity Glow" for my clients this is my go to product! A few tricks I can offer reading some of the reviews below... Apply it before your foundation to avoid the sticky feeling...apply it a little heavier then you normaly would so it shines though your foundation and if you want a little more pop of color apply some after foundation with a fluffy brush on the apples of your cheek and set it with a translucent powder, you'll look like a million bucks! :D
Nice, but fades quickly
This is a great cheek stain, and I tend to use this on nights out or when I'm using a primer underneath because I notice that the color doesn't last too long. It is also a bit difficult to apply as opposed to a powder blush, but it gives a lovely dewy look which is totally worth it!
I bought the Tarte sampler that had cheek stain, primers, liner....Anyway, I really liked the cheek stain at the time. I had a decent tan and the stain gave just enough color to look natural. It took a couple applications to get enough color though. When my tan faded I didn't like it as much because it didn't show up well at all. A different color might work better but I have found other products that I like better.
I'm a changed woman.
I ditched brush-on blush when I found Benefit's BeneTint. But Tarte Cheekstain beats it by 100%! It takes the tiniest little smudge to make a healthy, fresh, natural glow. It stays on ALL DAY. The tube is massive & will last for years. It was absolutely worth the price. Aside from the occasional bronzer, this is the only product that will touch my cheeks!
