Conclusion: I bought this product in "blissful" and it looks great! It gives a fresh dewy look that is perfect for summer. What isn't so perfect is tarte's use of artificial fragrance in this product. There is no need for blush to have fragrance, but it is in this product and it seriously hindered its rating on EWG. I'm certainly glad that it doesn't contain parabens, but for $30, I can probably find another blush I like without fragrance. If you're wondering why I'm so obsessed with avoiding artificial fragrances, read this!
