when I read the description and it promised all day wear I was skeptical, but once I used it it truly does last. I woke up this morning with rosy pink cheeks and the shade of pink (more like a light coral) I received was beautiful!

Fun for summer
Sampled

It's fun to get an even rosier glow on my cheeks in the summer, since the heat is already doing that occasionally as well. I don't know if this is something I'll want to wear when the weather changes.

definitely lasts!
Sampled

I'm always a little skeptical about long-wearing blushes, but this one is true to its word. It's the only blush I've ever used that lasts from 6am to 6pm. No need to reapply for happy hour! Love it.

Bold color, okay staying power
Sampled

I have sampled a few different blushes from theBalm® cosmetics, and this time I received InStain® in Swiss Dot. The tangerine color was a bit bold for my skin tone and preferred look, but the color payoff was nice and the color held all morning. I did have to reapply mid-day, but it has been a particularly hot and humid week here in the Northeast US so YMMV.

This is a quality product that leaves such a fresh and lasting tint on my face. I don't wear a ton of face makeup but a tinted moisturizer and some mineral veil and this blush looks flawless! It lasted on me all day.

Nice color
Sampled

Pros: Good, strong pigment and it really does last a while (unless you're touching your face all the time). Cons: Strong pigment. I say this is a con because I have naturally pink cheeks and so too much of this makes me look like a clown. That said, a little goes a long way so it'll last you a while!

Loved it!
Sampled

I don't usually use blush and I was a little worried that the Swiss Dot color I got in my Birchbox would be too bright for my fair skin, but when I put it on it looked extremely natural and good. It also didn't feel thick or look caked-on, I feel like I can't even tell I'm wearing makeup! I really like this, and will probably purchase a full-size one.

Great color, wears well
Sampled

I liked the color of the product. Swiss Dot looked scary in the pan, but was really lovely on. It wasn't as long wearing as I thought it would be, but definitely surpassed the longevity of most of my other blushes.

Stays well, not as blendable as Staniac
Sampled

I am a dedicated user of this brand's Stainiac gel, and it would take a lot to get me to switch. The sample pack prevented me from getting a blush brush into the sample. I used my fingers to blend it on and was happy with the color and consistency, but it didn't blend as well as the gel. However, it did stay ALL day.
