Birchbox Breakdown

Naturally flushed, rosy cheeks are a great way to look fresh and healthy. Streaky, glaring cheeks are a great way to look clownish. Avoid the latter with theBalm® cosmetics’ InStain® Long-Wearing Powder Staining Blush. The buildable formula comes in a range of skin-flattering, natural-looking hues and stands up to heat and humidity.

How it Works

The silky powder leaves behind a lasting stain that blends in seamlessly with your skin. There are six lovely shades: Lace, a rosy bright pink; Argyle, a soft baby pink; Pinstripe, a warm plum; Houndstooth, a mauve with subtle bronze shimmer; Toile, a warm coral with red undertones; and Swiss Dot fresh tangerine. Swipe on a single layer for a subtle look or carefully build up the color for a more visible (yet still natural) hue. Plus, the cute compact has a built-in mirror for speedy, goof-free applications.

How to Use

Dab your blush brush into the color, tap off excess, and dust it onto the apples of your cheeks. Don’t be intimidated by the neon-ness, but be careful to use it sparingly—a little goes a long way! The lightweight powder is made for layering, so you can build to achieve a bright, rosy hue.

Way too pink
Purchased

A little really does go along way, and the Lace color is sooooooooooooo intense pink, I can only use a tiny amount--there is nothing natural looking about it if you use even a tiny bit too much. I may try the peach next and see if that works better with my skin tone.

Long wearing
Sampled

I'm a fan of many of this line's products and this is no exception. The color is certainly long wearing but goes on just a bit bright. So careful application is key. My only other issue with it is just that the color is a little too orange for me (I got the peach color). I imagine one of the other colors would look great. I love the packaging of the product and adore the magnetic closure.

Good pigmentation
Sampled

I enjoy using this blush for an easy flush of color on my cheeks. A little goes a long way, and the blush is long lasting. This is more of a spring/summer blush for me considering my fair skin.

My favorite

I have a few of these in different shades. They are very pigmented but as long as you use a light hand, they will apply very nicely in one stroke. The packaging is adorable and make great gifts.

Long lasting blush!
Sampled

I really loved this blush. Even the little sample I got lasted me for a really long time bc it doesn't take much and it will last all day. Like I said, a little goes a long way so be careful not to overdo it. All in all I really loved it bc it lasted so long. Never had a blush last all day before bc I get hot easily and there goes my makeup haha. But not with this stuff. Locked in solid so you'd think it would be hard to take off, but it's not. Great product!

I love the color of this. I love that I can use my finger and put it on my cheeks as blush and also on my lips. Looks great on fair skin!

Great, long lasting blush!
Sampled

These colors are so pretty, and one swipe of your brush is all you need for enough long-lasting color (I've worn for 12+ hours). Looks super smooth on skin, and will last forever!

I've tried:

Swiss Dot - really nice orangey color. I tend to use it in the summer with gold highlighter. Could be great for Fall too.

Argyle - love this! Truly is a "petal pink" as they call it. Great for spring, or for daily wear.

Great long wearing blush

This blush truly is long wearing and looks great hours after application. The formula goes on smooth and blends easily. A little goes a long way! My favorite color is Swiss Dot.
