I received the "Flush" stain as a gift. I like it a lot when I am in a rush, but if you get it wrong at all... it is difficult to correct. I haven't tried it on my lips, but for my cheeks, when I get it right... its a good color and lasts a long time

Love these stains for summer when I don't like to pile a lot of product on my face. This doesn't feel like you're wearing anything on your face. I like to apply with a fluffy brush, sweeping it over the top of the stick and then applying to my cheeks. This way I don't have to worry about it setting before I can blend it.

I've been using the same tube of Tarte cheek stain in Natural Beauty for about 7 years. I would estimate I wear it three out of every four days, so it's amazing I haven't had to replace it, but with a light complexion you really only need a touch of it to brighten up your face. It looks extremely natural, like you just came in from the cold, which I think another reviewer said above. I like the gel consistency and it glides right on. The plastic tube has pieces broken off of it from the few times I've dropped it, and all the lettering has won off the side, but that's what you get after 7 years!

I absolutely love the color the check stain puts off, it is so easy to put on. Very quick and convenient. My favorite colors are fearless and Blushing Bride. I was also surprised about how long they lasted!!! OH and the Best Part Is They SMELLL SO FREAKING AMAZING.

I am very happy to use this product. It is very easy to put on my cheek; in addition, it is always stay on my cheek whole day. One time is enough for make up. Save budget more than expensive brush on brand that I use it from the past. I don't know you are open market in Thailand. I think it is really good quality product that I cannot find in my country.

Wasn't my favorite. I feel like the color, although cute, was super light.

I have had my tarte cheek stain in flush for about 8 years now, and I will never buy another type of blush again. As stated, I've had the same stain for 8 years, and there is still plenty left, even after using it almost every day. I love the easy application, as I just need to dab the stain on my cheeks and rub it in. The color is perfect for me because it adds a natural-looking glow and matches the color that my cheeks turn when I blush so it never has the make-up-looking effect that most blushes do.

I got this in exposed. With a little work I figured out how to work with this texture. My only complaint is the size.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the Cheek Stains, I have several colors. The product smells great, applies nicely. It gives you a nice flush of color with a natural looking finish, other blushes don't appear as natural as these. This product makes your cheeks appear that the color is your natural flush .. AMAZING! The stains are nourishing for the skin and come in a great array of colors for every type of look. MY ONLY complaint is that Tarte has seemingly gotten a little stingy and sells a much smaller size now for the same price as the older cheek stains which were much larger.

I love the fact that it's like a giant deodorant stick for your face. It cuts down my morning makeup time, while giving my face a subtle glow! I just take a swipe to each cheek, and I'm ready for the day.

I do like this cheek stain. I thought it was great for when i just needed a little color in my face because im quiet fair. Great for when you dont want to wear a lot of makeup. I didnt need to put on foundation with this. (:

Have a small size of this in natural beauty. Very lovely, almost a gel like texture and glides on well. I apply with the two front fingers and dab onto my cheeks like a stamp and then blend as needed. I have only skin, so I don't wear this is the summer, but for me it makes a great winter blusher.
