Tarte Natural Cheek Stain in True Love
If you want to hear my thoughts on this product, click to read more!
There are 8 shades available and the deluxe sample size contains 4.8g of product. Even though it's a deluxe sample size, this has lasted me a long time and I still have a lot of product left to use.
Tarte is typically a very natural brand that contains a lot of ingredients that will benefit your skin. I can't be sure that this actually works or the science behind it but it's nice to know that the brand is putting in an effort to be natural and beneficial.
In terms of application, you can either use your fingers or a duo fiber brush to blend out the product. Both give very nice, natural results as the blush is very blendable.
It does feel a little bit tacky to the touch but if you powder your face then it will go away. If you're not a fan of using powder, the tackiness is not anything that will be too annoying.
For lasting power I wouldn't say that this product really stains the face like the name suggests. It lasts for a decent amount of time, but like most cream/gel blushes it will fade by the end of the day. To prolong the lasting power you should set it with either a powder or a blush.
- gel-like finish
- easy to blend/apply
- gives natural, skin like finish
- no scent
- contains good ingredients
- doesn't really stain the skin
- can be a little tacky
- sheer formula (only con if you like really pigmented blush)
If you love natural, easy makeup and have been looking for a blush then I would highly recommend this. It's perfect for the no makeup makeup look. Also, if you like cream/gel type blushes then I would also highly recommend this.
If you like really pigmented, opaque blushes this may not be for you. I feel like it would be difficult to build up the color to be really opaque because this blush wasn't formulated to be very pigmented. Because of it's gel formula it provides a sheer, natural look.
Overall, I really love this blush because it's easy and effortless. I would recommend it to people looking for an easy everyday blush.
