Tarte Cheek Stains


After reading about Tarte Cheek Stain in a multitude of magazines, I finally broke down and bought some—specifically, the pinkish-red Flush shade, available for $28 here. Now, I have to say, I'm totally hooked on this push-up gel blush. I always thought it would be too moist and gooey for my somewhat oily skin, but because it's water-based, the color actually goes on very evenly and dry.

But what I really love about Tarte's Cheek Stain is that it's easy to apply, it won't fade throughout the day, and it's perfect for travel, since it won't make a mess like powder blush can. I recommend wearing it on bare skin for

a natural-looking flush or layering it more heavily over foundation and setting it with loose powder for all-day color.

If you want to sample several shades, you can also try this limited-edition Tarte The Good Life Mini Cheek Stain Set, available for $30 here. It includes the classic True Love pink shade, as well as the peachy Tipsy and the Glitzed golden shimmer.
