With the recent departure of TEAM MIDGET MAC from I Love NY 2, it was only natural that I turn to Tarte’s limited edition Mini Cheek Stain set — another pint-sized cutie — to comfort my broken reality TV heart.
The skinny on Tarte’s We Wish You Happiness Mini Cheek Stain Set:
This set of three gel-blushes comes in a purple quilted box with gold accents. Inside is a huge mirror so you can admire your bad self!
- three water-based gel blushes
- oil-free and alcohol-free, so the formula doesn’t cause zits or dry out your skin (my two main issues in life!)
- three colors: Merry (sheer candy-pink), Delighted (shimmery rose-gold) and Enchanted (shimmery pale-pink)
- super easy to blend and apply to cheeks; just use your fingers or apply directly from the tube
I know you’re tempted to keep this one for yourself. I can’t blame you! But if you’re still making your list this would be a great gift for:
Your mom. Is your mom makeup shy like mine? My moms doesn’t really wear anything except lipstick (the apple fell far from the tree in that respect) and doesn’t own any makeup brushes (seriously, waaaaay far from the tree). I think this would be a good way to introduce her to some non-intimidating blushes.
Your mid-day gym bud. If you usually hit the gym in the middle of your work day, sometimes you’ve only got time to do minimal makeup. This set would be a great gift for gym girls who only have five minutes or less to do post-workout primping.
Your lil’ cousin. Got a younger cousin or sister who is just getting into makeup? These blushes are natural and pretty but won’t make her look garish. You can spend some quality time with her by setting up a makeup date to show her how to use them!
Tarte’s got a ton of fantabulous holiday goodies this year! I’ll be doing a thorough review soon, but here’s a sneak peek…
Ohhh la lovely!
Oy, I’m so itching for the weekend! Hope you are having a wonderful Thursday and that your lipgloss is poppin’.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
