Birchbox Breakdown

Like Matt Damon’s famous one-liner in Good Will Hunting, this dual-purpose cream palette from theBalm® is destined to be a classic. Each one of these easy-to-blend shades can be used on both cheeks and lips, and they won’t streak or fade once applied. Have your way with six orchard-inspired colors, from a perky Cobbler red to a demure and sophisticated Caramel.

How it Works

This creamy lip and cheek palette offers gorgeous, long-wearing color with a slightly wet feel that makes it oh-so-blendable. You might say that applying it is as easy as (apple) pie. Each palette has six colors: Cider, Cobbler, Pie, Crisp, Candy, and Caramel. Mix and match for the sweetest results. Use Caramel for contouring, and dab Cobbler on your lips for a fresh shade of red. Layer Candy and Crisp for the perfect pink peach color, or use Crisp solo all over cheeks. Wear Pie on the apples of your cheeks, and try Cider to mimic the effects of a day spent in the sun.

How to Use

For a true-to-life flush, dab onto cheeks and lips with fingertips. For a more precise line, apply to lips with a lip brush.

How About This Balm?
Sampled

Light, creamy, and a little goes a very long way. I'm STILL on my sample! The color "pie" wasn't exactly the right shade for my skin tone when it came to it being a blush (all me, nothing negative towards the product), but I love to use it as a stain for my lips. My lips feel bare, no stickiness, but have a light flush to them that I love.

Versatile product
Sampled

I loved my sample-sized product on my lips, but it was a little bit bright for my cheeks. My mother, though, loved it on her cheeks when I let her try it. I bought her the full-sized product for Mother's Day and she really loves it.

Perfect cream blush
Sampled

I really loved "Bout Them Apples" cream. It is recommended for use on the lips or cheeks but the color I received did not look great on my lips. But I loved it for a cheek color. It blended well and held up!

Great for lips - cheeks didn't work so great
Sampled

I had this sample in pie. I loved it on my lips for a hint of color. Tried on my cheeks a couple of times and it just didn't work that great. It kept settling into my pores (I do have large pores) so cream blush is probably not the best option for me. I might by the palette just to play with, though. I do love theBalm products.

love this !
SampledPurchased

I got the sample 3 months ago and I wasn't such a fan in the beginning but the more I tried the more I loved it so I bought it. I initially started using it on my lips but now I use it on my cheeks and it's great. Great wear time and fun colors.

Love it!
SampledPurchased

I am obsessed with blush. It is my make up necessity. I am always on the look out for new blush products and this one is a winner. I love cream blushes because I feel like it has better staying power than powder and easier to use than stains. This palette is perfect especially since it doubles for lips too. Pretty much every color works in some capacity either as a lip gloss or blush. Also the colors are really easy to build with for a more dramatic or more subdued look. Only down side is the size makes it hard for traveling with it. But at least you are getting a good amount of product!

SampledPurchased

Having been inundated with samples for the past 6 months, there is one product that I have bought...
The pie color that I got for a sample still has a little around the edges. Now I have 5 more colors to play with. The palette is huge. Instead of a 1.5 cm circle of color, these are 3 cm diameter. It will take years for me to use it. (I predict less than that due to the toddler in the house.)
It goes on creamy, but not thick. Stays while I am at work. Does not irritate my skin. It looks natural.
All I can ask for in a blush.
(I don't use this for lip color, unless I put gloss on top. Not enough moisture for my lips on its own.)

I really enjoy this sample. It's been perfect for travel over the summer! It is easy to use with fingers and brings a natural flush to the cheeks.
