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 lasting blush!
Sampled

I really loved this blush. Even the little sample I got lasted me for a really long time bc it doesn't take much and it will last all day. Like I said, a little goes a long way so be careful not to overdo it. All in all I really loved it bc it lasted so long. Never had a blush last all day before bc I get hot easily and there goes my makeup haha. But not with this stuff. Locked in solid so you'd think it would be hard to take off, but it's not. Great product!

I love the color of this. I love that I can use my finger and put it on my cheeks as blush and also on my lips. Looks great on fair skin!

Great, long lasting blush!
Sampled

These colors are so pretty, and one swipe of your brush is all you need for enough long-lasting color (I've worn for 12+ hours). Looks super smooth on skin, and will last forever!

I've tried:

Swiss Dot - really nice orangey color. I tend to use it in the summer with gold highlighter. Could be great for Fall too.

Argyle - love this! Truly is a "petal pink" as they call it. Great for spring, or for daily wear.

Great long wearing blush

This blush truly is long wearing and looks great hours after application. The formula goes on smooth and blends easily. A little goes a long way! My favorite color is Swiss Dot.

Great color that stays on
Sampled

I have to say that I really enjoy this stuff. I have been using it as my primary cheek color for several months now. Best things I can say about the product:
-A little bit goes a long way, so the product lasts a LONG time
-The color is very deep/saturated
-The magnetic closure is great...doesn't open up and make a mess in the make-up bag

I got this in Houndstooth and I haven't worn any other blush since I've bought it. It's so FABULOUS! It stays all day, the color is gorgeous and the packaging is awesome, as we have come to expect from The Balm. Love it!!

Hands down the BEST!!!
SampledPurchased

I used my sample for about two months. Last's forever. Bought a full size about two months ago and it doesn't even look like I've used any. Stay's on all day - great color. Perfect if you like make-up! Could be a little much if you like that "simple" look. This is a great night out on the town or "done up" look. I love it, wear it daily!!! Worth the money!!!

I absolutely love this product. The natural looking shades of this product are perfect on my medium-dark skin tone. If I only have time to apply one makeup item it's always this! Swiss Dot is my favorite shade.
