Birchbox Breakdown

We’ve never been satisfied with basic blushes. Too often, they look amazing in the compact but leave behind flat streaks of color. Not so with this peachy pink powder, which has a subtle infusion of golden shimmer to give off a 3-D effect. It also works as a shadow and highlighter, letting you achieve pinup-worthy results with just one product. And did we mention that the cute mirror compact will look right at home in your purse?

How it Works

This illuminating powder is one of the most flattering blush, highlighter, and shadow combos we’ve ever come across. It combines subtle color with light-reflecting silica particles to give us the peachy keen complexions we’ve always wanted. Wear it on your cheeks, your lids, and wherever you want to add a dose of shimmery warmth.

How to Use

Sweep up a small amount of powder with a blush brush, and brush on the apples of your cheeks and your cheekbones. Next, use a shadow brush or the pads of your fingers to apply the pigment as a shadow. Feel free to add a touch to your jawline, the bridge of your nose, or anywhere else the light strikes (we promise the results will be stunning).

My go-to blush!
SampledPurchased

Such a lovely peach color with flex of gold glitter that give your cheeks a pretty shine. I keep this one on my bathroom counter because I know I can just put it on and have a lovely glow and a little highlight all in one!

Possibly My New Favorite!
Purchased

I am about the last person to jump on The Balm bandwagon, but I kept seeing rave reviews for their products so I redeemed my points for this. So glad I did! This is a gorgeous color with amazing pigmentation that still manages to be blendable. It stayed on all day and looked great on my fair skin. Love it! Will be trying more from this brand!

Amazing Blush!
Sampled

I don't usually wear blush, I never thought it looked good on me. I recently tried this one from my Birchbox and fell in love! I wear it everyday now and would definitely continue to buy it!

Favorite!

This has been one of my favorites. It was given to me as a gift and it has been a lifesaver on those nights out when you do not want to bring your whole make up kit with you. The color is great and the mirror is very handy. Leaves my cheeks looking naturally rosy. Received many great compliments when using this product.

Love the shade!

I love this blush - it's light and pretty, not too dark and heavy-looking. I've reordered twice! It results in a more 'natural' look.

Beautiful Highlight Color
Purchased

I love this brand. I use this product as a highlight. Looks great with my olive tone skin. When I want a light color for my cheeks, I just apply a little bit and makes me look alive.

My new go to blush
Sampled

Love this blush! Perfect peachy pink color with a healthy golden glow for the sunny months when I want an easy quick bronze look with just the perfect flush on my cheeks and lips. Goes perfectly with my favorite gloss and bronzer.

I really loved the color of this blush and it went on very easily. The color was long-lasting and looked natural on my light skin.
