Birchbox Breakdown

There are a few occasions in life when we blush naturally, like when we run into an old crush or make eye contact with a handsome stranger. Since those events happen rarely, we like to fake it with this flirtatious blush. The ultra-fine powder blends seamlessly into your skin, while the dusty rose hue gives it a natural flush. Plus, it comes in an adorable compact with a built-in mirror and can double as lovely eye shadow.

How it Works

While many blushes contain undesirable ingredients like synthetic colors and parabens, theBalm®’s blushes are thoughtfully formulated to respect your skin. The satiny powder goes on evenly, leaving a uniform flush. Light-reflecting silica particles minimize blemishes and other imperfections.

How to Use

Grab your favorite blush brush and pick up a small amount of blush. Tap to get rid of any excess. Smile, and blend into the apples of your cheeks. Since the formula is ultra-pigmented, you only need to use a little to achieve a rosy flush. You can also use your fingertips or a shadow brush to sweep the powder onto your lids.

love the shade
Purchased

i love the shade of this and how it really lasts all day. it doesn't wipe away or rub off. it was a little small for the price, though, but i had expected that

Stays on
Purchased

I like this as a blush, not as an eyeshadow as it is advertised for both. It goes on heavily, so use a light hand. IT does stay on all day, but is a little more towards the purple side than I would have liked.

Wonderful everyday color!

This color is a warm pink that seems like it would be flattering on lots of people. It's smooth and hasn't cause me any breakouts. I love the packaging as always! the Balm has a super great design team. It'll probably take me a year to use up all this blush, but that's ok!

nice tint, good quality

I love the packaging on this product! The blush is a nice dark rosy color and a little goes a long way. The texture of the blush is powdery but not too dry. I would definitely buy this brand again.

Love!

I love this product! A little goes a long way, and it is a gorgeous pink color. Blends well with my coloring, and has pretty good staying power. It was moderately priced, but I think it will last a very long time.

Very pigmented

This blush is VERY pigmented. It has a nice application (when using only a tiny bit and with the proper brush), and seems to last all day. It is just a bit too bright for me, so I don't wear it often. It is also fairly matte, and I prefer a bit of shimmer.
