Want It: Tarte Cheek Stain

I really want to try Tarte Cheek Stain. It is a water-based gel cheek tint; it is alcohol-free and oil free so it won’t dry out the skin or clog pores.

It is written that it contains “Skinvigorating™ ingredients like a T5 Super Fruit Complex™”(a blend of the five most active superfruits: goji, açaí, maracuja, acerola, and pomegranate) which is  pure water to help skin retain moisture and mineral-derived pigments known for their soothing and softening properties.

It is formulated without: Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances, Petro-Chemicals and Phthalates.

Sounds great to me!

I like the shades Flush (sheer berry/ raspberry scented) and Blushing Bride (sheer deep plum/ plum scented). The idea that they are scented with the berry/fruit that has a similar colour makes me wanna get this blush even more.

By the way, BECCA’s Beach Tints have  similar concept. But they are scented like the fruit/ berry they are named after.

I am not sure where to get Tarte in the UK/EU unfortunately. It is available at Sephora for $30.
