Birchbox Breakdown

Naturally flushed, rosy cheeks are a great way to look fresh and healthy. Streaky, glaring cheeks are a great way to look clownish. Avoid the latter with theBalm® cosmetics’ InStain® Long-Wearing Powder Staining Blush. The buildable formula comes in a range of skin-flattering, natural-looking hues and stands up to heat and humidity.

How it Works

The silky powder leaves behind a lasting stain that blends in seamlessly with your skin. There are six lovely shades: Lace, a rosy bright pink; Argyle, a soft baby pink; Pinstripe, a warm plum; Houndstooth, a mauve with subtle bronze shimmer; Toile, a warm coral with red undertones; and Swiss Dot fresh tangerine. Swipe on a single layer for a subtle look or carefully build up the color for a more visible (yet still natural) hue. Plus, the cute compact has a built-in mirror for speedy, goof-free applications.

How to Use

Dab your blush brush into the color, tap off excess, and dust it onto the apples of your cheeks. Don’t be intimidated by the neon-ness, but be careful to use it sparingly—a little goes a long way! The lightweight powder is made for layering, so you can build to achieve a bright, rosy hue.

Long lasting, great color

I received this in one of my first Birchbox boxes and still use it today. Lasts all day, great color and a cute little package. One of my favorite Birchbox products to date.

super pigmented
Purchased

I ordered Swiss dot, and it is super pigmented. On my skin with yellow undertones it looks ok, will probably suit someone with a darker skin.

Love & hate relationship
Purchased

Missing tinted cheek gel that is no longer made, I decided to try this one. The long wear/natural look was exactly what I was looking for and I thought I would be safe with the standard coral-type color that I would normally use. However, the color was way too intense and dark for my skin tone! Yikes! Rather than letting it go to waste, my mother is now enjoying my purchase. Hopefully I can try this one again but in a much lighter shade.

insane instain
Sampled

This product is one of those, a little goes a long way. The sample size is small but a little dab will do you. It's a great color for night, too strong during the day. Love this brand.

My new favorite blush
Sampled

I got this blush in the swiss dot shade (a peachy coral.) It looks great on my olive skin, and is definitely long-wearing. The color is rich, and a little goes a long way!

Amazing Blush!
Sampled

A little goes a long way with this product. Just the littlest bit gives my face just the right amount of color. I'm also a sucker for cute packaging so I was excited about this sample. I use this sample every day, great product.

THIS IS SO EASY TO APPLY! ITS WAY BETTER THAN LIQUID STAINS. THOSE ALWAYS GO ON STREAKY. I LOVE THE SMOOTH APPLICATION.

I'm amazed
Sampled

I have had this sample for over a YEAR and I am still using the sample size! I wear it EVERY day, and I have yet to run out of the sample. It is such an amazing blush, you only need a little bit and it gives you a great color that lasts all day. I have never used or even came across a blush as great as this one. 100% worth the money to buy it, you'll probably have it for 5 years
