I got this when I “built my own kit” on tarte.com. The packaging does not feel cheap, to use the product you must push the bottom up. It does come with a lot of product and I feel that I won’t run out very quickly.

The actual product it’s self is rather sheer with a pink shimmery tint to it. It is a more natural looking blush because it is not as pigmented, however, it is very buildable. To blend it I use a damp beauty blender which I have found works the best because it is creamier compared to a powder blush.

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!!!

This is probably one of my favorite blushes. I love it because it has the perfect amount of glow if you’re looking for something dewy. These are perfect for dry skin especially if you hate using powders. That last a while on the face and come in beautiful shades. The only problem is the application is kind of confusing. Applying the stick to your face gives too much pigmentation and using your fingers makes it hard to blend.  I use a brush and that seems to work pretty well.

I have this cheek stain/cream blush in the color fearless, it’s a really pretty pink-coral. This is my number one favorite cream blush ever. It’s sheer but still pigmented and is totally buildable. It glides on smoothly on an angle for a perfectly even contoured look. It moisturizes my skin without making it oily and honestly lasts all day long. I love love love this stuff even though this color is pretty hard to find. There are a variety of colors to choose from but this is my preference.

Review for: Fearless (pink coral) more...
Summer fave! I love how it produces a highlight like blush effect and feels so cool when you apply it. I love using it in combination with spf cc creams during the summer as a way to skin my face pretty with little to no touch ups through out the day. I would highly suggest this product... however, not ideal for oily skin.

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!

I am a fan for life! I absolutely love this blush! Goes on so incredibly easily, smells so good, and the colors are highly pigmented, so a little goes a long way. I plan to have this blush in my arsenal for as long as it’s made! Love, love, love.

I was so intimidated by the color when I first opened this but as you can see (swatch pic below) it goes on sheer and has a pretty berry tone. It smells wonderful and has great staying power. Make sure to do one side at a time because it dries a bit fast! It’s tacky at first but once blended you can’t tell it’s there (aside from the gorgeous color!!)

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!

MUA recommended I try cream blushes or cheek stains rather than powder blushes since the skin on my cheeks is dry. I've never used a thing like this before, so I'm a little intimidated. What's the best way to apply it?
