Cheek Stain = No More Powdered Blush

Yesterday was a major hangover day for me. Typically on days like these, I stay at home in pj's, eat anything I want and watch movies. But, unfortunately for my pocketbook, I went shopping with a friend instead.

The plan was for me to look at one lipstick and, if it was nice, I was going to purchase it. (This is what I told Allan.) Instead, I bought a few lipsticks and a Tarte Cheek Stain in Tipsy which is, quite possibly, one of the best products I have ever bought.

I am quite the blush fiend. In fact, I not only have a blush in almost every color imaginable BUT I am so confident in my blush brush abilities that I can put it on perfectly with my eyes closed. (Yes, I tried this last week...ha.) The only problem with powdered or compact blush is the actual application. If you're not careful, or using the proper tools, the blush will not go where you want it to and end up streaky or, dare I say it, clown-like. This is why the Cheek Stain is so amazing.

It comes in a tube-like container and is slightly tacky, like a lip gloss. You can use your fingertips or a sponge for application should you choose OR just apply straight from the tube to your cheeks like I did. The application technique is completely foolproof. Once applied, you smudge, smear or rub to your heart's delight and voila, you're done. I have a feeling that these cheek stains will soon be replacing all my powdered blushes.....

They aren't cheap ($39 at Sephora) but they are definitely worth the investment. I highly highly highly recommend looking into this brand ladies. OH, did I also mention that Tarte Cosmetics is a natural makeup line whose products are eco-friendly and cruelty free??? It honestly can't get much better than this.....Have a look at their website!


  1. OMG! It looks so pretty! I need to try some products from Tarte!

  2. Hi Catanya....thanks for the comment! These products are smashing and there are tons of different colors to choose from. You'll love them!


  3. Since I turn red so EASILY, I never like wearing blush... what do you recommend? I think the Tarte products might be too much for me. ;)

  4. Hey Bronwen...well, you lucky girl...the majority of all women wish they could have a natural flush. Unfortunately, your flush can also make wearing blush a bit tricky. Stila makes a color changing universal blush that actually becomes your perfect color. I'll be doing a post on it at a later date...


Thanks for the love!...XO Christina
