Pros: a little bit goes a long way, big size, bright and matte shade, good color payoff, interesting design

I love this brand for good and forever. And none of the Chanel products would be any better for me (after testing the Chanel mascara I understood that I paid 95% of the price for the brand name).

Well, the Balm brand proved itself to be an excellent cosmetic maker, which sells the products in the Pin-up style designed packages.

It’s obvious that such design can’t cost $2, however, splurging $20 for an item, you clearly understand what you’re paying for.


I’ve already tried a lot of the products from this brand and now it’s time for the blusher.

The silky powder leaves behind a lasting stain that blends in seamlessly with your skin. The buildable formula comes in a range of skin-flattering, natural-looking hues.

Long-wearing powder blush features true-to-pan payoff that won't fade or disappear.


The price for a single is $20

Weight - 6.5g, which is good for such a product which goes a super long way (but I don’t want to take the ball before the bound).

Dry textured products from the brand come packed with additional paper cover, which duplicates the design of the palette inside. And this is so pleasant because my beauty bag always travels with me and sometimes some items can just welter about my handbag, I confess.


Shade Toile- This is the reddest red from the lineup. Choosing the shade, I wasn’t repelled by this one, even though I could see that its color payoff was fantastic. And still, I purchased it.

Swatches with my fingers only proved significant in the color kickback.

The result doesn’t look so aggressive when I blend it out and it turns into a more pleasant shade.

In the pan it looks like fire, I mean it.

I appreciate that the compact offers a mirror inside, even though it’s really small. The mirror is of excellent quality by the way.

The product applies lavishly on the brush and doesn’t dust at the same time.

I won’t describe the application of this blush in details, I only want to tell you that if you want to look good, then make sure to apply a little and never wear it with an active eye makeup. Otherwise, you’ll look rather odd.

I use this blush when I wear natural and nude makeup, especially in winter, because I like how my cheeks look like after the frost.

The product is decent and I can recommend it, but maybe in a more versatile and muted color. If I carry on using it this way, applying only the tiniest bit, then I’m sure that it’ll expire before I’ll be able to use it up.
