If you want to go matte, try Too Faced's chocolate bronzer, they just launched a kit with the bronzer and primer too!
If you wanna try NARS Laguna for a bit of shimmer, but are a little hesistant, E.L.F. (online, Target, and Kroger) has their Studio line with a bronzer/blush combo for $3 and the kit is just about a dead ringer for the Orgasm/Laguna blush/bronzer duo from NARS.
Use a fan brush or stippling brush to apply the product if you are unfamiliar with technique and don't want to over use.
NARS' laguna works well. but if you're just using it for your cheeks then i suggest just trying a more light brownish/goldish/peach blush like NARS' lovejoy, luster and madly... or BENEFIT's dallas blush.
