Review for: Fearless (pink coral) more...
Despite buying hundreds of dollars worth of Sephora products per year, I have never written a review. However, I always read up extensively on any product I buy outside of the store. I believe reviews are essential for online makeup/skin care purchases. This product is definitely worth the honor of being my first review of hopefully many more to come. I have extremely dry skin to the point that my lips are constantly cracking and my face is constantly peeling. It is very frustrating, and although my father is a plastic and reconstructive surgeon, we have not found a product that completely alleviates the extreme level of dryness I experience daily. (C E Ferulic comes very close, but at $200 a bottle I really feel like it should be doing more) I have a yellow undertone, but I am not of Asian ethnicity. The flush stain is the perfect compliment to my skin tone, and it lasts long into the night after early morning application. It must be used very sparingly and applied very delicately due to the concentration of the pigment. You can always add more, but if you do too much you risk having to start your entire routine over. I purchased this product with my sephora beauty points, but I will absolutely be buying the full sized bottle again as soon as my sample size runs out. I do not wear foundation, but I do use a primer (primers are essential for even makeup application) and bronzer powder. The stain does not mess up my powder, and I also really love using it when I don't want to put on my entire face and just need a little color in my cheeks. I truly have a passion for makeup, and I think the flush stain is universally complimentary for all skin tones. I have been working on collecting makeup for my optimum beauty routine since my mom first took me to the Clinique counter when I was in 7th grade. This product absolutely made the team!tarte Cheek Stain

Review for: Blushing Bride (rosy pink) more...
I’ve a pale rose undertone and I must say this is by far the best “to go” product on my purse! It’s super lightweight, non-oily and with a natural finish! I think what I love it’s the subtle of the color on my skin, it feels really natural, almost “sunkissed” style but pink (you get my point). It lasts a LOT! And actually you don’t need to apply much on your face, I always press it really gently against my cheeks and then finish it with my fingertips (super simple!).

Pd: I play with it from time to time and I also have used it on my eyes and lips! And it gives a beautiful quick natural no make up makeup!!!

I have been using these cheek stains for years since they used to have the original formulas. It's the only blush I'll ever use because it's impossible to make yourself look like a clown and yet you can still tell that it's there. I put it on and immediately rub it along my cheekbones, and within minutes it sinks in just the right amount so that I'm perfectly blushed! Also one tube will last for years even though I use it every day, so it's a great value!

Review for: Exposed (nude pink) more...
I bought this in a holiday kit that came with a monochromatic look, and the only thing i wasn’t stoked about was this product! Of course i had to try it though, and i love it! It blends like a dream and doesn’t move my foundation even though it’s a cream product! The color pay off is amazing! Highly recommend.

Review for: Fearless (pink coral) more...
I believe, don’t quote me though, that I got this in a Birchbox box one month; so that’s how I personally got introduced to the product. And though I still have it, I don’t have intentions of ever buying a full size one in the future when I use mine all up. I’m not a super fan of Cream blushes so maybe I’m biased, but because I have oily skin, I much prefer powder blushes! I do have to say, which is why I didn’t give it any less than 3 stars, these blushes do blend out like a dream. In fact, they blend out so well, that it almost disappears into the skin!

These are the best blush you can get! They are so beautiful! You can add for a pretty pop of color or go subtle for a natural pink. The packaging is so cute and you can’t beat the price. I recommend everybody get one now!

This is my favorite blush for summer. That no foundation, dewy, natural summer looks. It glides on to any skin type easily, blends superbly, and despite because a gloss blush it doesn’t sit on the skin and transfer a lot.

I wasn’t expecting much with this but it was on sale so I decided to give it a go since I liked tartes clay blush. This looked great on my fair skin and lasted all day. It blends easily and last all day. I would and have recommended this to friends.

This is a product I've purchased more than once. A little product goes such a long way because of how pigmented this is. The application is easy and the looks are endless. Lip and cheek stain. Name a better 2-in-1 face product . Because I can't. You can sunstrip , blush, contour, have fuller lips or even use this as a color corrector under your make up. I have to have this in my collection .

Review for: Blushing Bride (rosy pink) more...
Not only is this the most gorgeous blush ever, it also smells incredible and lasts for a long time! I bought this as part of the blushing brides kit and it is by far one of my favorite blushes to use! That being said, you cannot apply this if you have any powder on your face, so you will need to use liquids and set your fave AFTER using this. It really is a gorgeous, glowy shade!

I've never really used a cheek stain but the color looks beautiful. Could you use this as a lip stain also?
