Tarte Cosmetics natural cheek stain

Posted

Pros: Easy to use, smells great, looks wonderful

Cons: Could be organic, could score better at Skin Deep

Natural cheek stain from Tarte Cosmetics is a cool cheek stain vs. powdered blush. I tried eco-cheek in coral, but there are about ten other shades as well.  

ECO-PERKS:

  • Cheek stain is talc free, butylene glycol free, petro-chemical free, paraben free, alcohol free, oil free, phthalate free, gluten free, GMO free, propylene glycol free, sulfate free, preservative free, and made with natural fragrances.
  • Infused with a natural mix of healthy ingredients - Tarte’s super fruit complex.
  • No animal testing.
  • There's a cheek stain recycling program in place. Simply send Tarte your empty cheek stain container and you get 15% off your next cheek stain purchase.
  • Tarte has some eco-policies in place and belong to The Natural Products Association.

While I did like this stain a lot, the tarte cheek stain got a 4 at Skin Deep. A 4 is ok. There's worse but there's also better. Right now at Skin Deep about 33% blush products score better.

Use perks...


This stain smells wonderful like a sweet berry cereal but it's not overly sticky sweet - i.e. it won't make you nuts or make you feel like a living strawberry. The cheek stain comes in a cute little recyclable roll-on container. You roll it onto your cheek directly or fingers then blend onto your cheek. The stain stays liquid-like for about 20 seconds so you have time to smudge. 20 seconds to blend before it dries.

The end result is a natural looking blush with just a hint of color - as if you were really lightly blushing. It doesn't look like you're wearing make-up.

There are also some sweet subtle pretty sparkles in the stain so your cheeks glow lightly. I usually don't like blush at all, but this stain was totally different and mistake proof. I'd buy it again and I'm normally a lip gloss only sort of girl.
