Review and Swatchtime | Tarte Tipsy Cheek Tint

9/9/13

One thing I really love in the summer in dewy and glowy skin, and so I tended to use products that would give me that effects - including spending a little time in the sun. 
One of those products was the Tarte Tipsy Cheek stain, a product that was bought for me on accident, but what a happy accident it was! You see, I had requested that my sister buy me the Tarte Tipsy Amazonian Clay blush but instead I got this little beauty. 



Pre-blended, once blended it's absolutely lovely and dewy! 

A swatch of the blush on my cheek, it gives a really nice glow effect to the skin all in all.

The colour payoff for Tarte Tipsy is beautiful, pigmented and build-able, which I absolutely love about this product. 
The packaging completely makes sense as its nice to have a push-up product instead of a vial where I have to dig for it. My biggest pet peeve is getting gunk under my nails while I'm applying make-up!
The longevity on this product is not quite good, as it only seems to last about 4-6 hours on me whereas I'd really prefer for it to last the 8 hour workday. Unfortunately, I think that most dewy products are not long-lasting.
The application of this product can be a little tricky. I don't like to take it straight from the stick but prefer to use either a regular blush brush or my fingertips. A regular blush brush works very well and allows the product to be evenly blended. The product can be a little sticky and will remain a little dewy/sticky on the skin until it wears away, which is a bit of a downside. I don't mind the dewy texture but I really don't like the sticky aspect.
At a price point of $36CAD it is a little pricey for a blush stick. Would I repurchase this product? I'm not sure if I'd repurchase as I think there are better creme blushes that can give a nice dewy glow like this out there. 

My rating: 7/10 
Good point for packaging and colour payoff as well as application. Points off for shot lasting power and a sticky aspect to the product

What do you ladies think of this product? Have you ever tried a Tarte Cheek Stain before?
