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.

Great blush!!
Purchased

I bought this because I was out of blush and wanted to try something new. I have to say I am so glad I bought this product. The color is very pretty and compliments me very well. The color goes on easy and you don't need a lot of it to get the color you want. It also last all day and into the night. I like that it is like a stain but you can put it on with a brush.

blush

Usually blush doesn't stay on my face for more than an hour but this one stayed on pretty well. And it's not so big so I can pop it in my bag and touch up if needed.

nice blush, a little goes a long way

This was a nice light blush that was perfect for my fair skin tone. A little goes a long way so apply with a light hand. I liked the packaging so as not to lose a brush or worry about a lid.

Great blush!

This is the most long-lasting blush I've ever used. Great color... love it! Takes a bit of blending, but then it stays all day.

Stays on long!

This blush definitely stays on all day. Unfortunately the shade I received was a little too pink for me.

Stays On!

Love this blush, it's long lasting and stays on throughout the day. I've never had a blush that lasts this long and well. Easy to apply and always looks good.

This blush packs a punch. A little goes a long way. I love the fact that you don't have to use tons of layers for big results. Less is really more with this product and the less on my face the happier my skin is.

Obsessed
Purchased

I received theBalm's powder staining blush in my first Birchbox back in July, and I immediately became absolutely obsessed. Firstly, whether I'm cinnamon-tan after summer, or paper-white pale in the winter, this blush (color - Swiss Dot Peach) is PERFECT for my skin tone. And all of my friends who have bought it based on my recommendation or on trying some of mine have loved it as well; each of them, despite being from very diverse nationalities, have been able to enjoy it just as much. In other words, the color is beautifully flexible!
Secondly, because it goes on quite strongly, I can wear as little or as much as I need to depending on the time of year, and it never fails to look beautiful and actually last ALL day. In the summer, when I'm home from school in Miami and taking public transportation to work, no amount of humidity or (regrettably) sweat has won over the staying-power of the blush. And in the winter in Philadelphia, no amount of snow, excessive wind or rain has moved a pigment of the blush either. It really is incredible. I would (and have!) recommend this blush to everyone!!
