Green Means Go: Tarte Green Siren Cheek Stain

Published in: Makeup, Product Reviews


I suppose I could drop and do pushups to wake myself up. Then again, Tarte’s new limited edition Green Siren Cheek Stain ($30) works much faster and requires significantly less effort.



Weightless and blendable, this shimmery golden peach cheek stain (Tarte says it’s 100% natural) delivers dewy flushes in a flash. Just a dab on the apples of my cheeks, a little blending, and 10 seconds later I’ve got a post-workout glow sans the perspiration.

I’ve worn it on bare skin and also tried it above my foundation and powder. No matter what, I think it’s always looked fab.


For my time-stapped girls who love quick, natural cheek looks, Tarte’s got a great option for fall. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B+

Where’d the summer go?

Happy hump day, chicas. We’re half way through the week, huzzah!


It hit me today that summer is just about over… Can you believe it?!

I can handle the boots, cozy sweaters and rich colors that come with fall, but I’m nowhere near ready for a return to the cold.

How do you feel about fall? Are you starting a new semester in school or getting ready to send the kids back to class?

    Hey Karen,

    I just have to get through tomorrow and I am on vacay for a week. I cannot wait. Summer seemed to go by pretty fast, but it’s not over yet! I really want fall to kick in b/c I can’t take the heat. I really want to wear my denim jackets and scarves. I want my slouchy boots and think sweaters. I live in NJ so I don’t want to 50 ft of snow we usually get, I just want a relief from the heat.

    I use to wear tarte cheek stains all the time when I first started dabbling in makeup. They are pretty nice. I can’t get enough of nars now, though.

    Ooh, that looks really nice on you! I love that there are so many more natural products to choose from lately, but my Sephora wishlist is getting out of hand! Some LE items are disappearing before I get my hands on them. 🙁 Oh well, such is life. Great necklace, by the way. 🙂

  4. the swatch looks nice 🙂 very office appropriate!

    That is a pretty color on you. Some days I really wish we had a Sephora here and other times my wallet is glad we don’t.

    I am NOT looking forward to the snow and cold, at all.

    What a pretty color! Where did you get your necklace? So pretty!

    Really pretty, very glow-y. But you’re right, 30 bucks is a lot for a cheek stain.

    I am SO ready for Fall. I actually would prefer to be cold rather than hot. You can always add more layers. When you’re hot, there’s not much you can do. But I also live somewhere where it can hit 115 degrees. That will make anyone a fan of Fall!

    Hey karen,

    I will be relaxing at home and hanging out with buddies. You know, all the good stuff. I’ll throw some shopping in there, too, of course. Lol

  11. Megan says:

    I am so excited about the Fall. I’ve been getting into the mood already. My vampy nailpolishes are out and in use! I also bought two new pairs of shoes that scream fall. Too bad fall doesn’t happen in Atlanta until November 😛

      Hi Marce,

      LOL! I wish I could skip working out. If I don’t run or do cardio my sweet addiction catches up with me.

      Do you guys get tarte down there?

  13. MG says:
