This color is amazing. The first Tarte Cheek Stain I purchased was Blushing Bride and the second was Tickled. I like it because it gives you a sun-kissed color. I literally look like I spent a week in the sun after applying this cheek stain. I put quite a bit of product on my cheeks with a stippling brush and then put some face powder over it to look more natural. I have very oily skin so I was worried about how dewy the product makes you look. Great thing about this is that you can put powder over it to take away the dewy-ness (sp?). Will DEFINITELY repurchase. The 30 dollars is worth using a product that has lasted me a year.

I have tried quite a few of the Tarte stains, Blissful (orange not pink), Dollface (shimmer ice pink), Flush (Benetint purple), and Blushing Bride (plum brown). I have recently purchased Tickled, and it's the best one so far. The other reviews mention a "peachy red". I see more of a peachy pink. Still, to me it's the most natural of all the colors. It's like a touch of sunburn pink over a slight peachy base. It's really easy to wear. Still the same sticky feeling at first, the same fragrance as always, but very pretty. I hope this helps all the women who are tired of trying to find the "right blush".

I really like to let my face have a nice dewy finish to it after applying my makeup, so I love this product. definitely my go-to blush. i prefer it much more over powder blush. its build able, and i love this color it looks so natural and great on my yellow under toned, fair skin. I also absolutely adore the colour it gives you on your lips! a lovely, natural colour that looks great. awesome product, love it. the only thing is i wish it went on a bit more evenly, but then again i may have yet to learn how to apply it better.

Great peach red color, looks very natural. You get a lot of product for what you pay plus you can use it on your lips too. The smell is nice. Great color for winter everyday.

I stopped using this product about 3-4 months after buying it. Not the type of stain I was looking for.
One thing I absolutely love is the smell of the product. The product does not have the color name, so Im not sure if mine is the "Tickled" shade but the smell is fruity cherry like.
I was hoping that this "stain" would last long but it does not. Does feel like a cream/balm when applied (I use a foundation brush to apply it because using my fingers can be a little messy). It has a dewy finish which is nice but its not exactly my style and prefer a powder/matte finish.
It is pigmented, so I do not apply too much and blend it out. WIll not buy again because:
-little goes a long way and you get a lot of product so this thing will last for a long time
-Not really a stain
-Do not like the dewy look

First of all, I really like the concept of these. They're fuss-free and really supposedly easy to use. However, I'm still not too sure whether I love them or not. I got mine in Tickled and it gives me a nice natural glow. The problem is it's sticky! I can't stand it. I have to put powder over it because my hair starts to stick to my cheek. Maybe it's because it's humid where I'm from. It's kind of expensive for a cheek stain, but one tube will probably last me years! I still want to try the other shades though. ;)

This is a water based gel blush that comes in a push up container. It looks very dark at first but when I apply it is a very sheen pinkish-reddish color. I have olive skintone, so on me it looks completely natural! The price is kind of expensive, but you do get a lot of product and I do not see myself running out of it any time soon, it should last a few years. It goes on very smooth, and feels sticky at first but after it dries its fine. The only thing I don't like is the container, you can push it up but you can't push it up. And once in awhile it has condensation on top of it. I just wipe with a paper towel, and its good to go. I would definitely buy again, not that I would ever run out.

Gives the most natural looking flush on my olive skin! I dab it on with my fingertips.

I have fallen in love with these tarte cheek stains. I have tried BB, MAC, Stila, and NARS cream blushes and while those were all very flattering, they retained a creaminess and opaqueness, which for going out or a more conspicuous look is very attractive, but these tarte stains have a sheerness to them that i find very flattering and natural looking. Also, they are quite possibly the easiest product to apply.
Tickled is a peachier-red, very similar to natural beauty. Natural beauty looks more strawberry when blended out and is a true strawberry-rose/red, without any peaachy or warm tones. Tickled is slightly sheerer and glossier in finish, as well as a touch less heavily pigmented. Tickled is like the shade you would see if you mixed peach and cherry jello together. It wears nearly identical to natural beauty, just slightly sheerer and glossier, which requires less blending, and the color has a touch more peachy warmth. Natural beauty gives you that doll-like rouge flush whereas tickled is warmer and reminds me of my skin with a blast of being out in the sun. The peachiness in tickled lends it to being slightly more natural looking and warmer against my skin (medium toned, slight olive undertones with some surface redness). Tickled is a warmer, peachier version of natural beauty and natural beauty is a true strawberry without any peachiness (just for comparison if you have either of them). Tipsy wears well over tickled for a slight highlight (the peachiness layers well), I tried it with dollface and dollface did not layer over tickled in such a flattering manner (as dollface layered nicely with natural beauty and blushing bride), there is a coolness in dollface that does not coordinate with the peachy undertones of tickled. I recall this being named tickled peach and I can see how that would be the perfect name for it, as it looks like a reddened peach.
I love them all, each has a different purpose and truly they wear so easily and naturally. Would love to have them all.

I'm nearing 25 and just started wearing makeup recently. Not being used to the feel of makeup on my face, and honestly disliking most conventional products I've tried, the idea of a stain was very appealing to me. I was especially attracted to Tarte because they're more natural, and having two children they'll come into contact with it at some point during the day (for example - while carrying my baby, or when my eldest decides to play dressup with my makeups).
This shade (tickled) only looks OK on my light-medium and yellow toned skin (I'm half Filipina). The shade is a deep and bright pink, but doesn't look as natural on my skin as "tipsy" (light coral flush, summery shade) or "blushing bride" (light plummy flush). I can apply those two shades with a quick swipe from the tube, then soften the edges to blend but with this shade I need to blot off some with a tissue then dust with a sheer powder otherwise I just look clownish.
This shade was very bright on my much darker skinned mother with a light application. My light and yellow skinned daughter has played with this and it looks like she has a fever unless I step in and tone it down heavily. Unlike my other two shades, this one is easy to over apply but it does blend easily.
The stain is very lightweight when applied and when dry it feels like there is nothing there. I tend toward acne on the cheeks and this doesn't cause any nor aggravate it if I'm breaking out.
I wouldn't buy this shade again, simply because the color and I don't match, but the quality is up to par with my other two shades. You get a ton for the price, so if this is the shade for you then you'll be able to love it for a long time!

I really like this little cheek stain (or I should rather say large cheek stain)! I love cheek stains specially my Benetint, however one day I noticed that after my moisturizer my Benetint looks so much better because it gives me a perfect dewy/glow, so I went to Sephora on the search for a tint thats cream or gel-based. I stumbled into this one and bought the closest color I could find to the Benetint, I'm not sure this is the one but it looked red enough and oh am I glad I got this one. It shows the perfect glowy pink blush on the cheeks (Just for reference I have yellow and olive undertones). Its so pretty a man in the pharmacy could've sworn I was pregnant he kept saying "but your face has this beautiful pink glow are you sure you're not pregnant? You look radiant." And if that's not a good enough compliment for the perfect blush then what it? The only downside is the bottle is not very hygienic and it lasts for too long and I'm not sure I want to keep reapplying something on my face after a year. I would love a smaller bottle, about half its size for half the price. This lasts too long. I've had it for a year now and its not even half way down. However, the dewy pink blush left on your skin in quite beautiful so I would recommend it.

I donít like to carry makeup in my bag or touch up throughout the day, so Iím always looking for makeup products that last. Since Iím the natural makeup kind of gal, I want people to think I naturally blush like that without the help of any makeup. Believe me, Iíve tried all types of blushes, Tarte Tickled Gel blush and MAC Lilicent Cream blush are the only two that I give me the most beautiful rosy glow to my face. While I love both products, Tarte is still the winner. The problem with Lilicent is that it looks super natural on your face when you first apply it, but it fades within a few hours. Also, the creamy texture makes it easier to be wiped away. Since I sweat and blow my nose at times, Tarte is definitely a better choice for me. Tarte Tickled Cheek Stain (USD 30) has become my everyday blush.
The color seems dark/purple-ish in the tube, but it comes out almost transparent with a hint of pink. It looks sheer and natural once applied, which adds a healthy peachy glow to my face (Mac NC25). My cheek color is exactly like this when my face is flushed. Too bad that only happens when Iím tipsy (btw thereís another Tarte Cheekstain in Tipsy, how cute!), when I feel hot or post workout.
Because of the gel-based nature, the blush is a bit sticky at first, but it dries up quick. After it absorbs into the skin, it stays all day long. Some people like to use fingertips to apply. However, I like to apply it directly to my face and blend it with my blush brush so it doesnít stain on my fingers. There are times when I just have to dash out the door in seconds which leaves me no time to clean up the mess.
The only thing I donít like about this product is the packaging. It comes in a 28.4g huge size tube, but some people use it for years! The tube is ginormous, itís not exactly convenient to travel with. Regardless of the packaging, itís still an awesome product after all. Highly recommended!

This is a lovely red with a touch of coral blush...a soft red and it applies like a dream. One of Tarte's slick-surfaced blushes that I swirl my finger on the surface to liquefy and then I tap it onto my cheeks and even on my lips as a stain. I put some gloss on top, a little mascara, and I am ready to go. There's SO much product as I think I won't finish it for years and years to come.

I love it!!! I use this everyday not heavy, easy application and long lasting(a little goes a long way). Looks very natural. Im a woman of color and I was kinda afraid of experimenting with blushes but this was the first blush I ever used and it never crossed my mind to try another... its a must have!!!

I haven't met a Tarte cheekstain that I didn't like. LOL I use this every day and its fabulous. The nice thing about Tarte cheekstains is that they lightly stain the skin. It's hard to over apply this product even though it can be done. If you do so, just rub it until its blended in and put a bit of powder over it and nobody is the wiser. Since Tickled is a darker shade I have had to do that before when I've had a heavier hand than I wanted. You can use a brush to apply or your fingers. I like my fingers because it warms the product and makes it even easier for blending. And even though Tarte is expensive, they last forever. Seriously, I would definitely buy this again but I bet I die before I need to replace it. :)

This is the first (and, I suppose, only) expensive blush that I have ever purchased. I bought this a little while ago and was/am pleased with my purchase. The colour looks natural. And the product lasts FOREVER! It looks like it's an expensive product, but the fact that it lasts so long takes away from that.

Can't believe I never reviewed this. I've had Tickled for a while and like my other long-standing cheek stain, Sunkissed, it has lasted forever. You can't beat these for the price. and because I apply with my fingers, I find they're much more portable than a powder blush that needs a brush. But why I really like this is how natural it looks. Blushes come in two modes way too often: creamy and melts right off, or powdery and looks fake in certain lighting no matter how well I blend. These cheek stains really do look like translucent, fresh, natural color while lasting a good time (on my combo skin at least and I live in a hot climate.) I'm NC27 and Tickled is a great color on me, sort of a vivid reddish-melon that really brightens my face without looking clownish. Which is one of the things I like about these - I can wear brighter shades than I could in powder because the stain looks so natural.

Tarte Cheek Stains are the best blushes ever, imho. I have dark hair and fair skin with some freckles, and Tickled is a great shade whether I'm wearing cool or warm makeup on my eyes and lips. (I'm able to wear both on my face.) I've worn dramatic red lips with this, as well as a pale pink/lilac gloss and beige-nude lipstick. I love that you can vary the coverage. Dab it lightly or use more. I just uncap the container and apply right to my cheekbones and blend with my fingers. I smile then dab the container on the apples of my cheeks and tap it up lightly at a diagonal. After use, I wipe the top with a tissue.
What I like most about the stains, is that they stay put! By the middle of the day, you still have blush on. But don't leave this product in a hot car. The blush will melt and then dry in whatever shape it was in. I still used mine when this happened to me!

This is one of my favorite Tarte cheek stains. The shade is very natural and adds healthy looking color to my cheeks. I love it! The texture is easy to blend. And it really is a stain. It's long lasting and seems to absorb into the skin. Would definitely repurchase.
