answer 1
I have very fair skin (yellow undertone), green eyes, and dark hair. My skin picks up a lot of pigment, so I have to be really careful with blush and eye shadows. That said, I found Tipsy to be the best shade for a natural-looking cheek. For an evening/more dramatic look, Natural Beauty worked well.

answer 3
I have super fair skin with dark brown hair, after I tried all of the cheek stains at my local Sephora today, I went with Tipsy. It gave my cheeks the tint they needed :) and like others have said, you can vary the degree of brightness by how much or how little you apply.

if you're unsure about colors, try flipping your head upside down for a few moments (like you would do if you were drying your hair) and then look in the mirror and observe the red that shows through your skin. That color is the shade to go by when picking the right kind of blush for your skin tone :) even though people are in categories of light, medium, and dark, there are multiple ranges in between where some colors may work for some but not others! Hope that helps! :)

I am very fair and when I went into Sephora I was lead to Doll Face and Tipsy. Both are beautiful colors that look very natural. Doll Face is actually my favorite and it gives you this soft pink color that is just gorgeous(kind of like the flush you get from light exercise or from being out in the cold for a little bit). I have included a photo of me wearing Doll Face. Remember you can layer it to make it as light or dark as you want it. I also put Tipsy and Doll Face together too with Doll Face on the apple of my cheeks and Tipsy just above then I blend them and it looks gorgeous that way to.

I was just in Sephora yesterday, and I spoke to a consultant regarding this product! I am fair skinned as well, so she recommended Blissful and Dollface. I'm leaning towards Blissful for myself only because I'm more partial to the peachy natural tones, but Dollface (though it seems a little TOO shimmery) provides a flowery, pink flush. Dollface definitely has more shimmer than Blissful though.

I have pale skin and brown hair + eyes. I've only liked dollface, blissful, and blushing bride. Dollface is the perfect just-been-exercising pink, don't worry about the purple product, it's comes up a soft pink. Blissful is like a soft touch of sun, not red or brown but a super soft in between. Blushing Bride is a great evening color, it's an awesome fashionable purple-pink, that manages not to look overdone, even on my fair not-really-a-makeup-person skin. All three are super subtle and believable, and between them cover most looks I'm going for. Happy Shopping!

Actually, I have fair skin and medium to dark brown hair as well. :) Almost all of these look good on me! As others have suggested- Flush, Blissful, and Dollface are your safest bet. If those work well (and if you're feeling adventurous) try Blushing Bride. It is in the same color family as Flush, but its a slightly deeper red. Since this is so easy to layer, you can control the strength of the color very easily.

Quick note: I tried Tipsy, and it didn't quite "do it" fo me. It was too shimmery for my tastes. It's color was okay on my skin, its just that the shimmer bothered me. ^_^;

I have fair/light skin, dark hair, and light eyes and with this coloring I have to be careful with makeup colors to avoid looking like a clown. The Sephora rep helped me pick out a blush and he picked the Tarte natural beauty (berry pink). At first I was sure it would be too dark and dramatic. Surprise! It was a perfect match - like it was my own color. He used a synthetic brush and I have had no problems doing it home using the Teddy Bear brush.

Hands Down... try "Flush" remember if it's not right for you ...
You can always exchange it.
But I tried & still have - Doll Face (which is soooo barely there!
I use it on my lips sometimes...kinda funny!
But I found a purpose for it ;)
And Tickled, (which looks okay, but doesn't look natural on me)
"Flush" is really beautiful. I've used it for 3 years - Oh & it smells yummy too!
"Flush" is a cool rosy color (and it's been said has the slightest hint of a coral)
I can't see the coral, and I can't wear corals, but this works so well for me.

When I apply it, I use a little too much, but then rub it in to get the
coverage i want. I just thought I'd tell you that because "Flush" seems to
last a good 6-8 hours on me.

You'll L<3 v e it ~ Really!
And don't forget--if by chance you don't, Sephora is great about returns!
Remember this is sooo-sooo good for your skin, plus it doesn't cause break-outs!

I personally think Dollface compliments lighter skintones well, especially if you are going for a really natural look. Tipsy would be a good choice, but it is a bit darker than what the picture shows. If I were you, I'd go with Dollface (though Tipsy is pretty good).

It depends on the look you want. Dollface has a nice pink that will compliment the natural pink undertones that fair skin usually has and it will make your face look brighter. Blushing Bride is a natural looking berry that can be as dark or light as you want it.

answer 18
Even though they look very dark in the package, the berry tones (like flush or the all-natural one) are good for fair skin because depending on your skin tone they can give you an "English rose" complexion (i.e. if you are quite pale and its winter) or a summery beach look (if you've gotten a bit of sun or wear some bronzer). The Tipsy is a nice pinky-peach, and Dollface is a sweet pink, and those give a more subtle look that is good for when you are wearing a lot of eye makeup or for a cheery spring day kind of look.

I only used BE products and recently have started adding other products. I've tried the cheek stain on without any foundation on and it looks very fresh for a quick wake me up look. When I use the foundation and the stain together you can originally see the stain in a line but if you gently stroke your cheeks with your fingers to blend the color a bit better the color looks more natural and less like a cream blush. I also quickly brush on pure radiance right after to add a bit of an even look to the cheeks. I've only gotten compliments since I started doing this a few weeks ago! I hope this helps!

I use both products and I get great, natural results. I apply the cheek stain to the apples of my cheeks BEFORE I apply my foundation. I follow with the warmth powder and check to see if I need anymore pink color on my cheeks. If I need more I just apply more stain. I finish up with an application of the mineral veil. This usually lasts all day which, as a busy student, is a plus! Good luck!

I use these with BE and have no problems. I apply the cheek stain to freshly washed/moisturized/primed skin and make it pretty vibrant - moreso than I want the finished look to be. Then I go ahead and work on my eyes and use concealer and let the stain dry. After it's dry (2 minutes tops), I go ahead and use my BE like usual. I don't have any problems with it and I like the finished look much better than I did the BE blushes. I have tried to use it ontop of BE - that didn't work out so well. :P

I usually just use this over tinted moisturizer, but sometimes i miss me BE so much I have to use it. When I use the BE foundation I found that if I put a little bit of my rareminerals moisturizer on the apples of my cheeks after the foundation the cheek stain looks much more natural. Just a tiny bit of moisturizer and rub it in and wait a second to soak in then put the cheek stain and blend. This way it doesn't get all weird with the powder.

Tarte Cheekstain are designed to be worn over bare skin. I don't think they blend well with powder or foundation because it will actually mess up the powder or foundation on your face. I think you should try Bareminerals' blushes if you want to wear a blush over Bareminerals.

For me, my bare minerals foundation did not sit well on top of the sticky texture of the tarte cheek stain, but when I put the stain on top of my BE it did not blend well and looked silly. I have found that if you use the stain first, then a primer, then BE this order/process works well.

I have tried it both over and under my bare minerals foundation. i would unequivocally say that you need to put it on first. if you're worried about color intensity, just put on a extra coat to make it a shade darker than you want it. if you put it on over the bare minerals it just rubs off and doesn't stain your cheeks at all. hope that helps!

I would apply the bare minerals very sparingly if at all on apples of your cheeks. After applying bare minerals to the rest of face I would then apply the tarte cheek stain, let is set for a minute or so and then go over very lightly with a fan brush with just a touch of bare minerals to blend and set your cheek stain.

Hmm.. I have used it over covergirl's foundation and it "washes" the foundation away. I think it would be best used UNDER liquid foundations.

However, I do use Clinique's Cityblock as well and it stays longer when I use it over that tinter.

I think that if you are using a foundation, you should find a powdered blush. I'd highly recommend Dior's blushes.

I have used this many times over BareEscentuals mineral foundations. I have also used it over Clinique CityBlock tinted moisturizer (which is a light foundation, in my mind). It looks great both bare and layered over foundation. You just need to be a bit more precise in your application. When I apply it bare, I put a big red blotch on each cheek and then blend like a maniac. When layering, it is more important to dab it on a little at a time in the areas you want it to be. Otherwise all of the blending and rubbing may be a bit strange with the foundation.

As for colour recommendations, I find that Blushing Bride is really a nice general shade for everyone, for all seasons. Layering it intensified the colour, so you can always start small and work your way up to prevent looking like a rag doll.

Another thing I will say is that it is very good for break-out prone skin. It does not clog pores or deposit colour into large pores. I have ended up with pink spots from liquid/cream blush before - SCARY! But this one is really a good choice.

Hi ! If you like a peachy pink color, try ECO-CHEEK or BLISSFUL.
I have both, and my favorite is ECO-CHEEK. Is a peachy pink natural flushed color with a hint of glow (no glitter or sparks), is suitable for me just over naked skin for a gorgeous natural look, and even more perfect under pressed powder. Blissful is more "barely noticeable" peachy pink flush, very natural with no glow. I also have NATURAL BEAUTY, FLUSH and EXCLUSIVE. Love all of them. FLUSH is very nice rosy pink, natural color.

I have both of them and the color of Flush is REALLY similar to the Benetint one. (Like you I have dark hair and eyes and medium skintone). The main difference I would say is the texture. While Benetint is in a liquid form, Tarte's Flush in more of a gel, which can be great because you have more time to blend it in and its strike proof (very natural looking). However, as some have mentioned, Tarte's cheek stains can feel sticky at application, but after it dries, I could barely feel the stickyness. I think its the secret for long lasting... Plus its smells AMAZINGLY fruity!

I used benetint for a long time as well. The problem that I've come across is that benetint dries out too quickly on my cheeks after I've applied it (you know, in the little "x" marks that you're told to use?). I end up with "x" shaped stains on my cheeks from time to time. Tarte's flush is the same color, but it is much easier to apply, and because it's a solid, it doesn't dry out as quickly, so there's more time for you to blend it properly. Definitely try it out!

I'm not sure what color that is, but the performance is excellent and easy to layer so it would probably be a good product to try! I have brown hair and blue eyes and I like the "Blissful" shade.

While I haven't tried Benetint, I would recommend Tarte cheek stain to anyone wanting a natural looking blush. With medium complexion you may try a different color than flush. Maybe try sunkissed for a bronzer or tickled for a look deeper than flush.

Hello to you. I also use Bare E. in the same color. I have never tried
your present cheek stain but I too have brown eyes with dark brown hair, instead of black. I use, and love, the Tarte stick in Blushing Bride. You can layer until you get just the right color for your skin. This color has a
deep tint to it- not pink based. You can barely apply for a slight hint of color or layer more for a more dramatic effect. Hope this helps you.

Question
Best Tarte Cheek Stain color for Asian complexion?
Hi, I would love to try a Tarte Cheek Stains, but I'm not sure what color would look the best on my skin. I am Korean, so my skin is light/medium with yellow undertones, and my hair and eyes are black. What I know for sure is that I don't want a plum color. Apricots and pinks tend to look the best on me. Any suggestions? Thanks!

You should try Doll Faced...it's a shimmery sheer pink color. That's if you like shimmery makeup.

I'm Korean as well and I bought this in Flush and it looks wonderful on me! I would just remember to dust a little bit of powder on top of the product because it is sort of sticky.

Tickled would look best on you. Its a peachy red that will liven up any skintone while still being true to your undertones. It is very buildable so dont be afraid of it being to dark.

Sunkissed (apricot-peachy) and flushed (peachy pink) are both flattering, natural colors. I don't know which kind of plum you're talking about but I've noticed with my mom that the yellow in Asian complexions goes really pretty with more ruby-shades (sheer of course--for makeup in general) for more fancy occasions. I've never tried Natural Beauty (a sheer berry color) but maybe you could sample a really sheer layer next time you're at Sephora.

If apricots/pinks work well on you, you might want to look at Tipsy. It goes on a nice peachy pink with a hint of shimmer (not glitter). Looks nice, natural and glowy.

Question
Does this last?
I want to find a blush that lasts all day. I love the look of a flushed cheek, but it seems every blush I try is gone after a few hours.

Hi,

I see other reviewers finish this with a powder. I don't - I just use it as is, and it's perfectly fine. It stays all day. I really like this stain.

Dear tarte product user,

The cheek stains will last all day when applied properly and set with a translucent powder or a powder blush.

The only problem with cheek stains is that they get lighter as they dry. Wait a few seconds before you decide you are wearing enough. If you wait for the blush to dry then you will know how much more you need. Other than that it lasts all day for me.

It does last all day--if you use it right. I found the product is a little sticky after application. So: a little goes a long way, blend blend blend and if you really want it to last, use a light hand and apply some powder after you've given it a few minutes to set. I'd also suggest applying this stuff to bare cheeks.

I have found that it stays, but I usually put some powder blush over it helps set it. Depending on your skin type you should be fine!

Hi,

I use both. While Benetint is longer laster and just about waterproof, the Tarte Cheek Stain is easier to apply, and comes in a great variety of shades. Benetint dries faster, and Tarte gives amply opportunity to get it on right before it dries. For ease in application, I'd go with Tarte.

Hope this helps.

The Benetint is waterproof, and this is not. If you're out in the sun or sweating, this cheek stain will start to smear on your cheeks.

The cheek stains will last you a LOT longer than the Benetint, but they also tend to dry out or melt. Organic products don't tend to survive heat. However, the cheek stains are much easier to apply than the liquid Benetint, and they look WAY better.

Tarte is definitely better. Way easier to apply. I tried the Benetint but it's so much easier to blend the Tarte and make it not look streaky. They both go on very sheer and give you a glow, but Tarte's tube is much easier to use. I found that I got more uses from the Tarte tube also. When the product ran out, I found some color stuck in the cap that I was able to use for another couple days.

100% Tarte all the way, hands down, no questions asked. This is superior cheek stain in that it is so easy to use, and you get a great result every time, no matter the season (thus your skin colour) or circumstance (application during commute, for instance). Benetint does not do it for me. It looks like a stain unless oyu are a professioal applicator. Tarte's stain is much more natral, last forever and is just great.

I find this way easier to use than Benetint. Benetint is more liquid whereas this is a gel stick.

Hope this helps.
