Product review Tarte Cheek stain
I'm still new at blogging and I never had a special request before so I'm happy to oblige. Tarte is an american company that makes products, paraben, phtalates and sulfate free. They are not natural per say but they are tolerated by most skins. I two cheeks stains in the two palest shades, but they do have more pigmented and darker shades as well.
The two shades I have are glowy and gel based. Most of them however to not contain shimmer. My two shades are also awfully similar, looking back I wish I would have made a different selection.
To apply them you can swipe them or that them in with your fingers or a brush and then blend. On my dry skin they last all day. They also look incredibly natural.
Here's a swatch of the two shades I have under natural light
Dollface is my favorite one of the two and the palest shade available. This one is no longer available at sephora US and Canada and is only available on Tarte's website. It's a pale baby pink with shimmer and a hint of lavender. This shades is really pale and will only show up on fair to light skin. If you like very cooled tone blushes but you want something more pigmented Flush seams like a great option. It's looks a lot like benifit's benetint.
Here's a closeup on dollface
Typsy is a light shimmery coral. Like I said it is very similar but it's more pigmented and warmer. This shade would be great for anybody up to medium skin. Tarte as also blissful that more warm and a bit more pigmented and less glowy or tickled that's a stronger peach shade that would look great on tan skin.
Here's a closeup on tipsy
I love cheek stain but like I said I wish I would have picked up another shade like flush (raspberry) or loving (a pale brownish pink) instead of tipsy. They bot they all day on my skin and they look incredibly natural. Since but shades are slightly shimmery and very dewy I do not need to wear cheek highlighter when I wear them. Since they are both quite pale I can apply them really fast when I'm in the rush in the morning.
If you want to get a hold of them outside of Canada and the US you have to go through either ebay or a mail service like myus.
I would recommend this product especially for dry and combination skin.
Here's dollface on my cheeks. As you can see it's extremely subtle and soft.
