Tarte Full Blossom Natural Swirl Cheek Stain

Tarte's Spring 2008 collection, "Health Couture", includes an all-natural version of the company's best-selling Cheek Stain, loved by beauty editors for the natural, dewy flush it gives. It's perfect for this fresh, budding time of year.

Natural Swirl Cheek Stain comes in one color, Full Blossom, which is a strawberry pink hue that best suits fair to medium complexions and hair colors.

Pretty Factor: The stain contains an antioxidant-packed T5 Super Fruit Complex composed of acai, goji, pomegranate, acerola and maracuja berry. Shea butter and safflower seed oil moisturize, while carnauba and candelillia wax form a protective barrier between blustery Spring weather and your healthily flushed cheekers.

Eco factor: No parabens, mineral oil or phthalates. Every purchase of a Tarte product that has its new T5 Super Fruit Complex supports the Sambazon Sustainable Acai Project, a Brazilian organization that provides companies worldwide with organic and fair trade acai berry while re-building the Amazon rain forest via planting of acai trees.

To buy: $28 at Sephora stores and

Ooooh, I think I need this! I have always LOVED Tarte Flush but hated the fact that the FIRST ingredient is propylene glycol. I love that my favorite conventional brands are starting to make healthier alternatives.
