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.

Love this product
Purchased

First of all, the packaging is obviously adorable. But I think the product is also great. There are higher quality lip stains out there, but for 6 different shades, this is a pretty good deal. The product stays for a good few hours on the lips, and almost all day as a blush. I also like that the color is very much buildable, so even the brighter colors can be applied to be pretty natural looking. I was surprised to see that the cream dried into a matte, almost powdery texture, as other reviewers said that it stays dewy and creamy.

Perfect for cheek stain!

The color I received (pie) was the perfect rosiness for a little burst of color on my cheeks! I don't know about the other colors, but they might make a great combination of lip and cheek stain.

My favorite cream blush
SampledPurchased

I love this palette. I use these for cheeks only, as I think they settle into lip lines a bit too much. But they give a beautiful natural blush that really glows. They also don't break me out.

My favorite is Pie, but I can use all of them, even the bright red looks great in moderation and the brown turns into a fabulous pinky nude on the skin. The only one I really use is the very light pink shade, as it doesn't really show up on me.

Not long-lasting
Sampled

I only used this product as a lipstain,so I can't speak to its effectiveness on the cheeks. As a lipstain, the product looked great, and really made my lips pop. However, the product was not very long lasting, and wore off after my morning tea, requiring multiple applications throughout the work day.

Great lip product. Feels good going on and has a nice scent. Color stayed on well but I think I would
Keep it just for the lips and not cheeks

Surprisingly pretty
Sampled

I wasn't sure about the bright reddish orangey "Cobbler Red" upon opening this up. But when I applied it to my cheeks I realized it was actually quite pretty. Especially with some gold eye shadow and some bronzer (hello J-Lo "glow" look). I could see it not being right for all skin-tones, but I think it's great on olive skin.

This is an awesome multipurpose product. I'd dab it on cheeks for a bit of color, and It looks great dabbed on lips too.
