Tarina Tarantino Neopolitan Lane Dollskin Cheek Blush
Tarina Tarantino Neopolitan Lane Dollskin Cheek Blush

Tarina Tarantino Neopolitan Lane Dollskin Cheek Blush ($25.00 for 0.20 oz.) is described as a “muted pink beige.” It’s a medium-dark fleshy beige; it’s very skin-like in its color, and it has a nearly matte finish. There is only a hint of rosiness; if you have pinker undertones, this might be more apparent on your skin than against my yellower undertones. It has more beige in it compared to MAC Brit Wit, which looks pinker compared to this. MAC Darkly My Dear is a few shades darker and browner. It is extremely similar to Tarte Exposed, though slightly less pink. Korres Natural is browner.

The powder is very finely-milled and soft to the touch. It applies smoothly and blends out effortlessly, and because of the naturalness of the color, it’s impossible to overdo. I love blushes in this color family, because they act as a my-cheeks-but-better kind of color. They merely accentuate and emphasize the natural tones of the skin. This lightness of this color means it works best on fair to medium skin tones, while medium-dark to dark may find it to disappear against their skin tone (blushes in this tone but several shades darker would work for the darker end of the spectrum). I was really pleased with the wear of this shade; eight hours without fading.

I highly recommend this for light to medium (possibly medium-dark) complexions as an easy, wearable, everyday kind of blush. It works well with dramatic looks as well as subtle, barely-there looks. Usually when I can't think of what blush to pair with the rest of my look, I reach for this kind of color.

  3. nitnot

    Looks gorgeous. Dang, now I want this blush.

  4. Reminds me of a lighter version of MAC’s Prism.

    If you could only get either this blush or blush horizon de chanel. Which would you recommend I’m nc35. Ty!

    I’m curious what lip product you’re using here! It’s lovely.
    Very nice daytime blush!

  7. “My cheeks but better” is right! This looks lovely on you, Christine :) I’m always worried about natural-toned blushers going orange on me, but it looks like this one has *just* enough pink.

    Hey Christine. Do you have the Tarina Tarantino blush palette that consists of 4 blushes? Are you going to review it?

  9. What a shame I cant buy Tarina Tarantino products here in Germany =(

  10. martyna

    You look lovely, what are You wearing on Your lips?

  11. Laura

    Have you heard of the new ‘Napolean’ line? I saw them at Ulta.
    They look really pretty, but I’m worried they may not be as pigmented as they look.

  12. Catttt.

    how does this compare to nars douceur and tarte exposed? is it worth it to get this when i have the other two already?

  13. Lisa

    I’ve been loving the lips/cheeks swatches you’ve been doing lately! What foundation have you been wearing?

  14. Ahhh one of those “my cheeks but better” shades! I’m really craving for Tarina Tarantino products now!

  15. Kat

    One of these blushes is going to be my next blush purchase! My poor wallet haha.
    I love your reviews and cheek swatches by the way, you have the best ones out there :)

  16. Kathy

    Hahaha to be honest, I’m kinda disappointed in this! Don’t get me wrong, it looks really pretty, but with a name like “Neopolitan,” I expected something like a highlight, blush, and contour trio (you know, something that looks like the ice cream! Vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate!).

    • Mrs Crna Gora

      Haha! I love it… Good point:)

      I was just coming to post something like this! Also, without being given the type of product, I’d assume something named Neopolitan was more likely to be an eyeshadow trio.

  17. Dana

    Wow! This looks like a great, everyday blush that goes with everything!

  18. That looks beautiful! Do you have a recommendation for a blush in this same color family, but more suited for medium-dark skin? (I missed Darkly My Dear, unfortunately.) I’m NC42 or a bit darker, for reference.

    Thanks so much!!!

  19. Summer

    Christine, could you please tell us what’s on your lips in this shot? The color is gorgeous, and I can’t help but be distracted from the blush! :) Thanks in advance.

    beautiful color! i like it on ur cheeks. =)

  21. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Amy Amy

    Oooh, very pretty! I love these sorts of more natural looking blushes.

    Incidentally, the “Dollskin” name of this line seems pretty accurate to me, for this color at least. When I paint dolls the color I mix up for the cheek blushing is usually very similar to this!

  22. Megan

    saw this on the sephora website and i wondered how it would look, so glad you swatched it! i love natural looking blushes.

  23. Mrs Crna Gora

    What are you wearing on your lips? It’s a beautiful color!

  24. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Gena Gena

    That looks GREAT on you!

  25. The metallic packaging reminds me of my beloved R&R blushes! This shade looks so pretty! :)

  26. Kaylee

    Will your recommend this over Tarte Exposed?

  27. Lilin

    Hi, the blush is lovely but I can’t help but notice the lipcolor you wearing is very lovely too! What is the lipstick/gloss you are wearing? I would love to get that! I have a soft spot for lippies! :)

  28. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Brooke Brooke Huber

    Will you be reviewing Carved Rose and Charm as well? Thanks!

  29. Pleinair

    How would you compare it with Korres natural?

  30. Kylie

    Purchased this when my Sephora was sold out of Tarte Amazonian Clay in exposed, and I am very happy with it! It is now my go-to blush for both day and night because it complements every look so perfectly :)
