Count me as someone who loves this cheek stain. It works well with my oily skin, lasts all day and gives, sheer natural color to my cheeks. My only complaint is that I think you receive too much product. I will never be able to use all of it before it goes bad. I know Tarte has recently decreased the size, but I wish they would consistently offer a travel size option.

I have really tried to make this product work for me, but cannot. No matter how I layer this product (over bare skin, liquid foundation, powder foundation, setting powder, tinted moisturizer, etc.) this has no staying power at all on me. It's got a strong (but not unpleasant) scent and a greasy, sticky feel to it. I agree with others who describe this product as just sitting on top of the skin.

I was intimidated by the color but it's actually pretty sheer once applied. It's a beautiful berry plum color that has a dewy finish. The new cheek stains are smaller than the original but I think the packaging is cute. They also last a long time - I have a small travel size of a different color and I've had it for FOREVER - with still plenty of product left.

I bought the cheek stain in Natural Beauty. I have been an avid user of Pixi's gel blush in the little tube for years, but I've recently began venturing into Tarte's makeup line and overall I've been quite impressed with the colors, texture, etc. of their products, so I thought I would try this cheek stain. Bad news...I do not like it, I do not like it not even one little bit. When I dab a small amount on my cheeks, it feels and looks extremely greasy. It virtually has no staying power whatsoever, nor does it really look natural on my face. Bummer!!! I will stick with my tried and true Pixi gel blush.

When I first saw this, I was a little intimidated by the dark berry colour. But this applies nice and sheer, and is easy to blend. A very nice cool, purpleish "just in from the cold" look, and I would say the name flush is very apt.It leaves a dewy finish. I like it a lot in the colder months - it feels moisturizing.I like the smell - it is a nice lemony fragrance.Application - I usually apply this by directly applying it to my cheeks then blending it in with my fingers. I really like this product but I'm taking off a star and won't repurchase because the full sized product is expensive ($36CAD) and way too big. I have this in the sample size and I think it is the perfect size - I like that for direct application I have better control of where the product goes. The full size is huge and I imagine it would be more difficult to apply it directly to your face without it going everywhere. If this was available in a smaller size (and lower price!) for purchase, I probably would repurchase it.

I got this as a sample from Sephora. As my first cheek stain I am very pleased with this, and it's the first time I've ever been happy with a blush. Usually I don't wear it because if it's dark enough to show up, I look like a clown. When I first put this on, I do look like a clown, but within a few seconds it lightens. I either dab at my cheek lightly to get a soft glow, or smear it on heavier. The product is sticky when first applied, but patting with toilet paper or blotting paper takes care of that, it also allows me to build it up if I blot it.

I like cheek stains, I've used a few in my day and I thought this would be a good thing to work with, it's got such a fun jelly consistency, beautiful berry shade and it smells like lemon cake. Once applied, the berry shade is non existent, it is just super sheer, the jelly looses its fun when you realize it is impossible to build up to get a stronger colour, it just lays flat on your skin and remains tacky and sticky and does not blend well. I have this in the colour "Muse" that I got in the Bon Voyage set and the review for that is the complete opposite, it's amazing. I guess the extra pigment helps the formula along so much better because it does have excellent and buildable colour pay off, strong wear and is a seemingly universally flattering neutral tone. I will post a general review on that as well, the rating is just for the colour "Flush".

Yuck, this stuff is so stick and slimy. Once you get it on, it just sort of lays on top of your makeup like goo. This just did not work for me.

I adore this product. I had always been curious about it but never wanted to fork out the money so when I had the chance to get it as a Sephora 100-point perk, I jumped. Once I run out, I will purchase the full-size product. It's expensive but I've been using the small tube for months and I still have a lot left so I think in the end, the price is worth it.It looks really dark but it's quite sheer when you apply it. I apply it after moisturizing, or if I'm wearing foundation or a BB creme, I apply it after that. I apply it to my cheekbones and then use a Sephora foundation brush to blend. I then apply it to the apple of my cheeks (or however you say that) and blend. I then apply power and a light dusting of blush.This product makes me look like I've been out in the cold, which is a positive because I'm extremely pale. It's not greasy or oily on my skin and it lasts all day. I'm not kidding about that, when I get home after work, I can still see the product.
