I am so obsessed with the cheek and lip stains. :) They last so long and I always get tons of compliments on my skin tone when I wear them.

Got the color muse in a gift set (I think its limited edition). Love the color and application.

I have flush and it is such a perfect color! this product is a lot easier to apply when it is first applied to a brush. It makes it hard to over blush.
I also love the scent

I love this blush so much!! I have never been a blush person, but now that I'm in my 40's I was looking for simple makeup that would give me a natural glow and apparently powdered makeup as you age is a no-no. After reading many reviews I decided to try this in the shade "exposed" and I LOVE it! It looks so natural and beautiful. I'm a fan now and will be trying many other shades.

I have this in True Love. Gives the perfect pop of pink. I use it with blush and foundation or just with powder when I don't want to wear a lot of makeup. Always is my go to product for that subtle flush.

The Tarte cheek stains are my personal favorite. They go on super smooth (as long as they are under powder), powder floats over them softening them a bit, and they last all day. I've tried a number of colors and never been unhappy with any of them. If I could only ever own 2 items of makeup, it would be mascara and cheek stain!

I've been using the cheek stain for years, it definitely is an adjustment from powder blush. I find it doesn't apply as evenly, however it lasts longer than powder. I've used Flush, but when in-store and looking at the Amazonian Clay powder blush, the sales rep recommended Tipsy which is very bright. Last winter I ordered the Sweet Dreams Bestseller Set which contained a limited-edition mini Dreamer. I've loved this color the best so far since it looks more natural, applies more easily than Flush, and looks great. Since the color is no longer available, I'm going to try Exposed and hope it is close to Dreamer. I'm not very good with color, so if anyone can suggest an available color close to Dreamer, please let me know!

I bought a few of these years ago and absolutely loved them. The color was great, they smelled amazing, and they were huge making them well worth the $30. I ordered one a few days ago and just got it in the mail and I was so disappointed when I opened the package. The cheek stains are still the same price, but 1/2 the size! It is still the same wonderful product, but I just don't think it is right to charge the same price for far less product. I planned on buying more colors, but now I'm not so sure.

just the right amount of colour and it gives my cheeks a soft, dewy finish. I have extra dry skin especially in the cheeks so I don't have any problems with this being too greasy. Will buy again.

I bought glisten and it is the perfect summer shade! Just the right amount of shimmer. Not overpowering in color. Gives the cheeks a fresh and youthful glow. Love it!

I bought this in the new shade Glisten because it is such a beautiful shiny peach, pink, golden color. I love how it looks and how easy it is to put on, not garish at all and you don't have to worry about being heavy handed because it builds up slowly with each application you may put on. Sometimes I put powder blush on top if I am working all day just to insure the color stays, but for going out and running arrands, I just wear the stain. I am using Tartes balm brush to put it on and the brush does a great job at applying the stain. I am going to try other colors now that I know I can apply this product over powder without smearing my makeup. A must try!

I LOVED this blush! Once I got the hang of applying it, I came to like it even more than my pressed blushes. It was quick to apply when I was in a hurry and it stayed put all day.
