You really don't need much product for an awesome color payoff. I received this in Swiss Dot, and love the color. It is very easy to over apply, so be sure not to have a heavy hand with this one!

Cute

I got swiss dot in my birchbox. The color is really cute, but a little bright for my pale skin. The packaging is adorable!

Nice blush
Sampled

I like The Balm's blushes, powders, and bronzers and this is no exception. The color was brilliant and sets off a summer tan nicely. Overall a good product.

Enjoy the product, but not the color
Sampled

This was the #1 product I wanted to try out for this month, so thanks so much for sending it my way. I love blushes right now! The only problem I had with this sample was the size and color. I wish they could have found a way to make the sample larger--not more product, necessarily, but just spreading it out in the pan so it would be easier to use with a larger brush. Since the window containing the blush sample is so tiny, I felt like I had to move my brush around in a very unnatural way. This was even harder because I've heard people say you have to be careful not to use too much of this particular blush due to the staining effect. Also, I wanted to try out any of the colors except for the one I actually got--the peach color, Swiss Dot. I am thinking of buying this as soon as I can decide on a color to get first. However, someone else in my family just ordered it in Lace, so she's going to let me try it first. I love long lasting blushes, so this is on my list.

A must!

I got this sample in my birchbox and decided to give it a try. Im a nursing student and was working for about 9 hours. When I came home, I noticed that the blush was still there!!! This is something I will purchase once I use up the entire sample!

A little goes a long way

This is a very concentrated color blush. It really stays put. The reason I don't love it is because it's very matte and not very blendable. I feel like I get a big color splotch when I try to apply. For this reason, its not for me.

Teeny Tiny!

This is a great blush, and the color I got is perfect with my coloring, and it DOES stay on all day. My issues are that it's the smallest little sample ever! TOO small! I'm afraid to even put it in my make up bag for the fear that it will be crushed. Also, a few months ago I got a Cargo blush sample which is the same color, texture, and it's waterproof too. That was a much larger sample in comparison to this, and I wish I hadn't gotten something to similar.
