I have both tipsy and blushing bride, both are absolutely gorgeous colors! They last beautifully all day. They even work for a lipstick in a pinch (although they don't taste great)

i received this product as a deluxe sample and I love it! It is an amazing color it feels smooth and gives just the right amount of color on the cheeks without looking like you stuck your cheek in a vat of paint. Plus, I am simply amazed by how long the product lasts! I will definitely be buying the full size!

Great cheek stain! A little bit goes a long way with this one. Product has a slight smell but nothing over powering. Will purchase again.

i do like this and may purchase it again, but can we add a brush to the product itself to make it an easy "go-to" blush that we want to keep with us at all times. The reason I say this is because you have to carry a brush or apply with your hand; and, it isn't ideal to apply with fingers (in my opinion of course).

I have the cheek stain in blissful and I love it! It gives such a nice natural, "just went running" flush. There isn't anything else that compares to it for an every day for a no make up look. And it lasts forever! I use it everyday and still haven't gotten to half of it, I've had it for a year.

Really love this. It is great layered under powder blush. Having an issue with it leaking from the bottom. Summer weather I guess? Wish the bottom was sealed off, so this wasn't an issue.

I got this in a sample pack. I was a little hestiant to try it because I didn't want to look like a clown. I'm glad I tried! It's really nice. I put a little bit of powder blush over top because it feels a slight bit tacky but, I really do like it!

I have the flushed cheek stain and it has great color payoff. I prefer the amazonian clay blushes over the cheek stains because the powder blushes are easier to blend and last longer. The cheek stains can sometimes feel greasy and takes longer to blend in order to create desired look.

Great stains! I purchased the vault when it came out a year or so ago and it had all of the shades inside. I do love them all! Each seems to have it's own different finish and pigmenation which is nice to have that variety. The colors are beautiful. They are a little tacky on the skin but I usually set them a little with some setting powder when I'm done applying and that takes care of that (unless you want that dewy look to your skin). Definitely love! and they last forever.

I did not like this product. It felt real greasy to me. The Cor was too bright. I bought this at a Sephora store. I do love many other Tarte beauty products.

This is one of my favorite products from Tarte! It gives your cheeks a dewy, healthy look. I am 45 years old and I had someone ask me if I just got a facial because my skin looks glowing and dewy. It was this blush that gave it that look. :) I'll always wear this as long as they make it.

Color turn out is amazing and it is so easy to work with! This is my first cheek stain and the bar has been set pretty high! Love it and a little goes a long way so this will definitely last you a long time!
