A218043 - tarte Maracuja Waterproof Cheek and Lip Tint
Not so great
I ordered it in the Nectar, you hardly notice anything is on.
Not my favorite
I love tarte - but this did not last all day on me. I found the stain sat lifelessly on my cheeks for a few hours. I ordered the peachy color.
All day color
A little tricky to apply, but wears all day. To avoid staining on fingers, I use a flat blush or foundation brush - just a tiny bit swiped over the cheeks gives a subtle flush of color that is seamless with the skin. On lips, a lip brush - same thing, tiny amount swept over lower lip, press lips together and that's it for me. Even after a ten hour day, my lips and cheeks still have a flush of color. I definitely prefer a gloss over the lip tint - gives it moisture and enhances the color. Beautiful for a minimal makeup look - no fuss once you've applied it - you're good to go.
You must work quick and start from the back . Also it stains your fingers for a long time ...to messy for me
MY NEW FAVE.......
Easy to use all you need is a blush brush if you dont want your fingers stained. The color is great,soft,long lasting just LOVE IT!
I ORDERED RED. IT WAS ORANGE ON MY CHEEKS. IT DID NOT LAST ON MY LIPS LIKE I THOUGHT IT WOULD.
Back among the living
I love this! I was using powder blush and noticed at the end of day I looked lifeless and the blush had vanished. I am now among the living again.......my cheeks are now full of life even when I'm pooped at the end of the day. Thanks Tarte for making my cheeks look alive again!
color not as expected
I got the nector shade. I only want it for my lips, I already have a blusher that works well.
I usually have trouble getting a lipstick that is light enough, but this really doesn't show at all, that was hard to believe !
It did go on well using a q-tip.
I'll exchange for the darker berry one and see how that is.
I love the idea of a tint that will last several hrs.
Sorry, Not this time
Usually love Tarte but this product was not worth the effort and time. Yes, it does stain your fingers before it even makes it to your lips or checks. Saw very little color on my checks, even though my fingers were stained pink.
Big mess trying to get it on my lips with my fingers. Tried it with a lip brush and it was better, but now my hand was pink again. Felt uncomfortable on my lips.
Hard to control how much comes out, too much waste. Sorry, just not worth the effort.
"THIS" gives a NATURAL lovely glow!!
After using several of my favorite powder blushes at $30.00 or more, I thought, at that time, -No, I will not have a soft look. It had taken me only (two) trial attempts to understand how to use this. Firstly, I APPLIED a little pattern of * dots* using my fingers ,(no gloves) working from the temple in a swift sweep making HALF CIRCLES, then I barely used a pin point amount in the "apple of my cheek", sweeping OUTWARD. Easily to BUILD on. I use the sheer RED on my very fair skin. It give me a beautiful glow, somewhat as the look when you just come in from being out in the cold air. It lasts & LASTS. I have had mine for over 5 months. The SECRET is to use DOTS, then blend-blend. The HINT of a little stain, that stays on your cheeks all day, is easily removed from finger-(I USE only one) with baby oil or any of the facial cleansers one would remove foundation. It IS one of my favorite beauty products. A keeper for me.
Finally, A blush that Stays On
I love this product. Several of you have complained about the stained fingers. I just rub a little pumice to get it off. It's definitely worth all the hassle, because the product does stay on! Once you get the hang of application and don't use too much smeared everywhere at once, the blush looks really natural and very pretty. I bought the berry and the apricot.
Difficult to apply, but nice color
The berry color is beautiful, but this product is extremely difficult to apply. As other reviewers have noted, it stains your fingertips. You can't put directly on the face, as it absorbs immediately. No one wants to have to scrub their fingertips with a brush and makeup remover after putting on makeup, but that is the only way I found I didn't have pink fingertips all day. I love the natural look, and the long lasting color.
I tried various other delivery methods like sponge and brush, without much success. I'm thinking a rollerball might work.
I do like the other tarte products, especially the foundation.
