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.

Long-Wearing Ultimate Blush
Purchased

This blush is truly amazing. I had given up on finding a blush that didn't fade after an hour or two. I have used drugstore and department store brands (which are good, but don't last as long as I would like). I read the reviews and decided to purchase. I am so glad I did. The packaging is so cute but the product really rocks. I put it on the balls of my cheeks and for everyday, no contouring necessary. Just looks like I came in from a brisk walk in the cold air. I use my fingers but I can see where you can really contour esp. with a brush. This gets the job done in a second and did I mention, it LASTS.........?

Lasts Long Time

This blush has great color and coverage. It lasts a long time, even for someone who wears blush everyday. A little goes a long way. Will purchase full size once my sample runs out!

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!
Purchased

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.
