Tarte Maracuja Cheek Tint Swatches

  By Laura. Posted September 3, 2011 at 5:30 pm.

Tarte recently debuted a new cheek product on QVC, a gel-based tint called Maracuja Cheek Tint ($25/.35oz).  They come in a mini pump, like the Make Up For Ever cream blush.  Unlike the MUFE  formula, which is an uber pigmented, somewhat dry cream, the Tarte tints are a sheer yet buildable gel.   And they wear FOREVER.  Seriously, much longer than their current cheek stain line up, even though those still wear great as well.  The two shades I got were Sheer Red and Light Nectar.  Sheer Red is a warm, slightly orange red, that’s buildable so will be suitable for all warm skin tones.  Light Nectar is a bright reddish peach, great for light to medium tones.

So pretty!  Here I put on Sheer Red to demonstrate how natural it can look when applied on cheeks and lips.  Ignore the terrible brows and skin.  I thought it was a TM day but macro shots of my face prove it to be a more full coverage day haha.

I love these things!  I can’t wait to get the other 2 available.  In their line of cheek stains, Sheer Red would probably be closest to Natural Beauty, but they are still very different.  Natural Beauty is more of a neutral red, whereas Sheer Red is definitely a warm red.  Light Nectar is similar to Blissful, but a bit brighter.  I hope they release tons more colors!
