Tarina Tarantino Neopolitan Lane Dollskin Cheek Blush Review, Photos, Swatches

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.

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!).

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.

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!!!

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.

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!

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! 🙂

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 🙂
