An actual staining powder! I LOVE it, it's a beautiful color that's easy to blend. Long lasting and a beautiful satin finish.

I love theBalm, but I don't actually use this blush very often. It is VERY pigmented, so be careful. I have toile, and it's a little too pink for me.

Meh..

Not a huge fan of powder blushes, so keep that in mind.

I liked this blush, it isn't powdery, the color I got was nice.

I still have other blushes I like more.

In love with this product! It is such a great shade, and stays for a long time throughout the day, which is all a girl can ask for from a blush, right?! Just a little dab and two swipes and you're good to go for the day!

A Winner
Purchased

I have tried many pink blushes and had never really found one that met my expectations. I ordered this blush and again was completely satisfied with my order. Most of all I'm satisfied with the amount of color it adds to my face. You don't need much and can be applied with your fingertips or a blush brush. As long as Birchbox sells it I will be buying.

Worth the price

I was skeptical, but this product is amazing! Long-wearing, blends beautiful, gorgeous coloring - I am ordering more shades! This is my favorite blush formula that I own. You need this blush in your life!

The package is SO cute, but the BLUSH. I have very light skin, and I have avoided blush for my entire life because I don't really like the way it looks. I only got interested because I used a sample in a different color that was actually beautiful on me. I bought the lightest pink, Argyle. I was thrilled to find that even using what I thought was a heavy hand gave me the most natural, long-lasting blush. It looks like me, only better.

I received this sample over a year ago and am STILL using it! It is just the right amount of color for that rosy look and is long lasting!!!

They aren't lying when they say "long lasting!" This stuff last all throughout my day. Its easy to apply, and if you do apply too much its easy to fix. Not too cakey, and the swiss dot shade is perfect for any skin tone. If you're thinking of buying, DO IT! You wont be disappointed.

Great, long lasting product.

theBalm line has drawn me in with so many personal favorites. InStain staining blush is a great product overall. It goes on smooth and lasts an entire day. The product also will get you several uses. The blush is quite pigmented so a little bit goes a long way. I first discovered this as a sample in my Birchbox and ended up buying the full size before my sample was even half used. My favorite color is the Swiss Dot. It is a great fall color that blends perfectly with my bronzer. It is a darker blush so I would recommend this for medium-dark skin tones and works well as a fall blush. This will be a staple that remains in my makeup collection.
