Nice Product!

I was not familiar with the Balm blush prior to receiving my box. I found the color very complimentary to my skin tone, and it layers nicely. The sample container was a bit hard to use though. I would definitely consider ordering this blush when I need more.

Love it

This blush goes on extremely well, I love that you don't have to use a lot to get the desired color. The color is very pretty.

Wow!

I got a sample in Swiss Dot. This is incredibly pigmented- a little goes a long way. I'm happy with my Nars blushes, but I was impressed by this.

Love the color!
Sampled

I was excited to try the sample, especially bc of its packaging style. Reminded me of Benefit Products, and I have a collection of Benefit make-up. Anyways, I loved the rosey tint it gave my cheeks! I have light skin, and the "Swiss Dot" tone worked well with it!

Hard to apply
Sampled

I found this difficult to apply, so it left my cheeks looking clown-like, instead of nice and rosy. I don't remember if it stayed on particularly long (or if I gave it the chance), but I won't be buying this or recommending it.

Too Dark
Sampled

I don't typically wear blush but if I did the sample I received was too dark. Although I will be passing it on to a friend who is much darker than I am.

Love!

I received this as a sample in my July Birchbox and I LOVE it! I love that this product stays on my cheeks all day and you don't need a ton of product to achieve a beautiful rosy glow. This little sample will last a long time!! Thanks Birchbox!

lasts ages!
Sampled

As many reviewers have noted, the sample size was a bit small/awkward to use. I felt the product went on a bit patchy as it was so pigmented (hard to cover brush evenly) and swiss dot was a bit bright for me. having said that, it lasted hours! normally i find myself refreshing my powder foundation and blush every few hours and this lasted almost the entire workday. I'm excited to try the full size, which hopefully will apply more evenly, and will probably give Houndstooth a chance instead of the bright swiss dot
