theBalm® cosmetics How ‘Bout Them Apples?™

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, long-wearing shades can be used on both cheeks and lips, and they won’'t streak or fade once applied. Each palette has six orchard-inspired shades: 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.

Wish I could buy the sample version

I loved having the sample to carry around with me, because it was so small and versatile, and the color was great. I'd love to buy another single one, but I'm not interested in having the whole palette or carrying the whole thing around with me.

Love this brand
Sampled

I always love the samples I get from this brand. They are so easy to travel with, whether in a suitcase or in my purse. I like how long these shades last and that I can use it for both lips and cheeks.

Fun colors and fun packaging
SampledPurchased

After receiving a cute individual sample of the 'Pie' color in one my boxes I decided I wanted the full pallette. Six fun colors and I love mixing them together to get the effect I'm looking for each day. I was surprised at how large the overall packaging is. Not as convenient to keep on me as the initial sample sized I received.
Maybe offer a smaller purse/travel version?
Otherwise, adorable packaging. Not totally sure what's going on with the cowboys standing shirtless by each color :)

Just okay

I wasn't crazy about the color or the consistency of this product. theBalm products are usually hit or miss for me.

Great colors!
SampledPurchased

These lip/cheek balms are absolutely great. Fun packaging, flattering colors and they truly work well as either a lip balm or blush. Great purchase and good value.

Fun Palette
SampledPurchased

This is a fun little palette of color. Can use on cheek or lip; I purchased the full size after receiving my sample. I found that I was unable to use two of the six colors only because of my own features and that red it just plain old hard for some of us. Otherwise, I do not feel that I overpaid, and definitely enjoyed popping into my gym bag and having gals ask me later in the locker room, where I landed that great palette!

Lovely
Sampled

I received a sample of this in my Birchbox. I love the color - very flattering to my complexion, and the size of the sample is really handy for travel. I would have bought a full-size, but it only comes in a palette with lots of other shades I just won't use. Doesn't seem worth it.

A LITTLE GREASY
Purchased

I love the colors and they are easy to use. One has to pat them to ensure you don't wipe off the color. They are very nice for summer since they are very lightweight.

Every Glow You Could Desire
SampledPurchased

I absolutely love all of these colors. I am a brunette with medium skin tone. My favorite its the crisp on the cheek bones with the cider just a little underneath. There is a difference in the ease of application with each color. I do like the less stiff colors more for my cheeks, but don't mind using a little extra strength to apply the others. I will use the caramel and cobbler as lip gloss some days. The palette isn't small enough to fit in a clutch though so I only put the gloss on as lipstick in the morning.

AMAZING Quality and Value
Purchased

I've recently discovered the balm, and I am totally hooked. I'm a huge fan of lip and cheek stains, so I thought I'd give this palette a try! The palette itself is so cute and special--it has a really nice sized mirror, magnetic closure, and a really cute design. The tints themselves are awesome! I like them equally well on my lips and cheeks, and they are highly pigmented, flattering shades, and relatively long-wearing (especially on cheeks). Also, I can't believe what an amazing deal it is! Each pot (there are 6) has more product than an average tube of lipstick (weight wise) and there are SIX of them!! AGH! Definitely my favorite purchase from birchbox. Thanks birchbox, and thanks the balm!
