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.

Great colors
Sampled

Great for your lip stain, but leaves a greasy film on your cheeks. The color palate is varied. The color maintains through the first few hours after application.

Love the colors

The colors are great for my skin tone. They are not sticky and super smooth going on. I do wish the color lasted a little longer.

Brightened Up!
Sampled

This is one product I feel strongly moved to write about and purchase! When I used the sample on my cheeks, it brightened up my entire face. And when used on my lips, I've found that it does last for quite a while. So happy to have found this product!

Pleasantly Surprised

I'm not generally a fan of the dual purpose stains, but theBalm has won me over. While I don't really use this as a lip stain (I like glossier lip color), I love using this on my cheeks. The packaging is better for carrying around in my purse than a blush & brush. The cream has a great consistency and is easy to apply. The color is natural and flattering. All in all, I love being able to freshen up my cheeks during the workday, before heading out to happy hour, or while out on the town at night.

I was a bit apprehensive about the color when I first saw this. It looked too bright. But I tried it and it was lovely. Very concentrated but easily blended.

Great blush option!

Used this as a blush rather than a lip color and loved it! Easy smooth application and a little bit goes a long way. Stays on all day.

Love this sample size - keep it in my purse and use it to give my cheeks some color when i need it thru-out the day. If I am in a pinch I use it on my lips, however I personally like it best on my cheeks.

I love that packaging and the product does deliver long lasting colour. It would make a great stocking stiffer of small gift, but as an adult I don't want my finger to get dirty everyone I want to touch up before a meeting of after lunch. I'm not into products that require additional products. If you have this in your purse, you'll need wipes or tissues, too.

Great lip tint
Sampled

I like this lip balm a lot! I got a bright pink color in my sample, and have been using it for a while-- so a little goes a long way. It acts as a sort of lip stain, that just makes me lips a little more colorful, and lasts for a nice long time during the day!
