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!

Review for: True Love more...
I hadn't really considered cheek stain until I was watching a makeup tutorial and they referred to the cheek stain look as "dewy" and I thought, "yes! This is exactly the look I want!" Naturally Tarte was the first brand that came to mind. I prefer the sheers and they look amazing and natural. It takes a bit of time initially to learn the best way to apply. For me I put a bit on the apples of my cheeks, warm up my hands and blend outwards. I do wish the packaging was a bit better, since you have to push up the bottom to get more product, I end up getting it all over my fingers.

Review for: Flush more...
I received a sample of this and this is my favorite cheek stain product!!!! Flush is especially beautiful and a great universal shade. I like to swipe this on the back of my hand and apply with a damp sponge or my finger. It gives such a naturally "flushed" look and lasts ALL DAY. Even better is that it smells great and contains a bunch of fruity ingredients!! LOVE THIS. Highly recommend!

Review for: Glisten (shimmering peachy pink) more...
This cheek stain is lovely but can be tricky at first! The glisten is a lovely warm peach with glittery undertones. The texture takes some getting used to- it’s kind of like a hard glue stick. For me I had to dab the product on and blend with a brush. The color was sheer but noticeable- especially in warm lighting. I love this product more than some of my powder blushes because the color lasts a WHILE and the feel is more moisturizing. Overall would definitely recommend!

A little goes a LONG way with these cheek stains. I use a brush because putting the stain directly on my cheeks deposited too much pigment.

My stain has leaked a few times (liquid seems to ooze out of the sides sometimes) which is my only concerns. But this baby lasts a really long time and gives such a great, natural looking flush.

I love this cheek stain. It gives a subtle youthful flush to the cheeks. Skin looks supple and glows. I use my fingers to swipe on. You can also use a brush to buff the product in. There is a lot of product to work with. You can order directly from Tarte or Ulta.

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.

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!

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