Very pretty color
Sampled

This is a good blush, works well for my pale skin tone. It has an orange undertone to it, but one that is flattering as opposed to others that I have tried that look clown like. It's a little rosy, and just gives a nice retro look. Looks best when the rest of the makeup isn't overdone.

Clown
Sampled

I looked kind of like a clown by adding this...the color was not for me because I'm pale. The sample is very small too!

Cute!
Sampled

This product packaging is adorable, even if the sample was somewhat small. I loved the color and it stays on all day! You really only need a little though, which means it will last a long time! Definitely recommend.

Instain

I really liked the color I got in my box (swiss dot) and I loved that it stayed all day. It was a little unforgiving when applying, and not so easy to blend. I also found that the sample size was so tiny, it made it quite hard to use. It was such a tiny square of product! definitely did not aide with even application.

Classic Colors
Sampled

This blush is great for its color pigments. They're classic shades that will look great on any skin tone. Their claim of being a long-lasting, stay-put color is also true. I am often going for 12-16 hours and this holds up all day. It's also very easy to use; great for a novice.

Hard to Apply
Sampled

I am a huge fan of theBalm particularly because their products typically apply so smoothly. I so I found this product disappointingly streaky compared to my hot mama blush by theBalm.

Long lasting color
Sampled

The sample color I received was peach - not a color I would normally purchase. In fact, it's much brighter than blush colors I normally wear. But I love it. In fact, I think peach is one of those colors that would look great on just about every skin tone. I'm fair-med, and this gives a lovely glow to my cheeks. Plus, it lasts longer than many other brands. A little goes a long way.

Swiss Dot
Sampled

I got Swiss Dot in my Birchbox and I really like it. Its a peachy color, which I don't normally wear so it's nice to have a different color. I wish it was a bigger sample size, though.

Beats the heat
Sampled

This cheek stain/blush is a great option for summer. It is very light and lasted all day through the humidity and moisture of very hot days.

Lovely
Sampled

The color is great - I received this as a sample, but I see that the full size even comes with a mirror, which is a great idea!
