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.

I was worried when I opened this up, but it promised a dusty rose color and BOY did it deliver :)) very rich color suitable for blending and gave me a natural flush. It replaced my estee lauder I thought I'd never live without. great products from The Balm!

Love It!
Purchased

First off, I'm a sucker for packing and this caught my eye. I love makeup that has that vintage look. However, the product is amazing. I love that it's not too pigmented. If I want to build more I can, without the feeling of me being too heavy handed. The color is great with any skin tone ( I'm dark) and it gives that natural flush of color. You have to try it, I cant wait to buy more products from this brand.

Like I've said before, the Balm cosmetics Company has the best names for their products!!! I put my makeup on with a smile, not just because of the name but because I think the blush has just the right amount of color to make me look natural. I love it.

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!
Purchased

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!
