Mischo Beauty Pick: Tarte Cosmetics' Cheek Stain

If you haven't tried the Cheek Stains by Tarte Cosmetics yet, please know that you're missing out! I've been wearing "A Perfect Whirled" and "Tipsy" and the color pay-off is both subtle and gorgeous. And yes, I'm impressed!

The cheeks stains are a water-based gel tint and the idea is that they will give you a "natural flushed" look, like "someone just pinched your cheeks". The formula is both alcohol and oil-free, so they should work for all skin types. They also contain an ingredient called "T5 Super Fruit Complex" which is a blend of "superfruits " known to deliver "refinining, restorative and anti-aging benefits".

You should also know that the cheek stains are free of parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, petro-chemicals and phthalates. Tarte's founder, Maureen Kelly, actually calls her beauty brand "health couture" because she says "it's a chic makeup line that's good for you too".

I almost forgot to mention that "Tipsy" (pictured on the right above) is a sheer coral-pink with a hint of white shimmer and an apricot scent (smells so good!). "A Perfect Whirled" is a coral-pink swirled together with an illuminating seashell-pink and it's actually my favorite of the two! There are eight other shades and yes, there's one for every skin tone. You may view them here.

I've been wanting to try these stains for awhile, would you recommend using them with mineral makeup?

To "life of an undergrad": In all honesty, I'm not a huge mineral makeup user...I'd recommend testing them out at a Sephora...:)
