Birchbox Breakdown

Like Matt Damon’s famous one-liner in Good Will Hunting, this dual-purpose cream palette from theBalm® is destined to be a classic. Each one of these easy-to-blend shades can be used on both cheeks and lips, and they won’t streak or fade once applied. Have your way with six orchard-inspired colors, from a perky Cobbler red to a demure and sophisticated Caramel.

How it Works

This creamy lip and cheek palette offers gorgeous, long-wearing color with a slightly wet feel that makes it oh-so-blendable. You might say that applying it is as easy as (apple) pie. Each palette has six colors: Cider, Cobbler, Pie, Crisp, Candy, and Caramel. Mix and match for the sweetest results. Use Caramel for contouring, and dab Cobbler on your lips for a fresh shade of red. Layer Candy and Crisp for the perfect pink peach color, or use Crisp solo all over cheeks. Wear Pie on the apples of your cheeks, and try Cider to mimic the effects of a day spent in the sun.

How to Use

For a true-to-life flush, dab onto cheeks and lips with fingertips. For a more precise line, apply to lips with a lip brush.

Most colors don't work well
Purchased

The product itself is fantastic and easy to blend. However, most of the colors don't work well with my skin tone, so about 50% of them are not going to be used. A shame, b/c I love how creamy and long-lasting they are.

Chalky
Sampled

The color was awesome, and matched my skin tone amazingly well, but after about the first 10 seconds, the balm felt chalky and dry, as if It might be cakey. Also, fairly hard to apply with a finger/small brush, as it doesn't spread very well

Lips/Cheeks, oh my!

Love this stuff. Looks good on both my cheeks and my lips. Needs to be worn with Chapstick for more moisture if used on your lips but I love the sample to throw in my purse for multi-use.

Meh..

Not particularly crazy about the color and texture of this lip balm. The color didn't last very long, and the texture wasn't moisturizing. While the packaging is very cute, I probably won't purchase.

Which Apple Should I Wear Today?
Purchased

Great assortment of colors to choose just about any color of blush you would want is in this Palette. Very soft and creamy easy to blend I recommend using a small stipple brush to apply it to your cheeks. Gently dab brush into blush crème , beware a little goes along way and gently swirl onto cheeks in a upward motion. So happy I bought this Palette.

Love this product!
Sampled

I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about this product. Something I could put on my lips AND cheeks? And I got Cobbler Red, the brightest in the set. I like bright on my lips, but I was afraid it would be a mess on my cheeks (like a straight finger line where I tried to apply). I was wrong.

It's not terribly moisturizing on the lips, but if it was, your cheeks would be greasy, so I like that. It stains them fairly well. And, it's very forgiving on the cheek. After I dotted it on, I was able to blend it out with my finger as much as I needed to create just a rosy glow.

My favorite thing about the sample was the packaging. Not just that it was cute, but that it's small and flat. I have a wallet that sometimes I carry without a purse, and it has no room for anything with hardly any depth to it (or hardly any room to spare at all), so a lipstick is out, as would most blushes be. This fits perfectly. I wish they sold them in individual colors (if they do, I haven't seen it), and I haven't seen the packaging on the full size, so it may be a perk that only the sample gives...but it's wonderful. I never want to be without this product in my wallet!

Perfect two in one

This balm really does but it tells you it well. From the super cute packaging, to the wonderful color for your lips and cheeks, this kick started my obsession with bright lip color for the year.

Beautiful Colors But Drying on Lips
SampledPurchased

I liked the sample of this so much that I purchased the full size. I LOVED most of the colors, but found that several of them had different consistencies than the sample, and were drying and flaky on my lips. This product works best on cheeks. The packaging is super cute, but not very practical. It's a little big to carry around in a purse for touch ups, and the pots popped out of the packaging easily and had to be put back in. Found it hard to get the product out with my fingers after I started running low.

Great multipurpose product
Sampled

This gives a great pop of color to lips and cheeks. I especially love it on my cheek bones. It provides a warm rich color without being shiny or sparkly. Great for a more natural look. I also like to layer it under other blushes if I was a base for a more iridescent blush.
