I recently was introduced to cream blushes and thought I’d give them a try. I liked the concept that cream blushes are good for summer because they blend well into the skin, and I like how you can also use the colors on your lips.
I splurged on theBalm palette from http://www.birchbox.com and I LOVEEE THIS!
Heres a close up of the colors.
I use Cider the most. It is a peach color that really gives my cheeks a beautiful color.
Pie is a pink hue that has a fuscia undertone.
Candy is a lighter pink that looks like a rosy peach.
Cobbler is NOT good for your cheeks. One light dab gives your lips the best red tint.
Crisp is a shimmer pink with an almost orange tint. I don’t really like shimmery cheeks or lips so I don’t use this often.
And Lastly, Carmel is a nice brown. You can use this to contour if you think its too brown for you.
Overall, I’m really in love with this palette. I think you should check it out! I bought it for $32.00 and I reach for it more than anything. The shades last about 2-3 hours so reapplying is a must for me!
I use the elf studio stipple brush to apply this because it packs on the color well.
The palette is perfect travel size and perfect for summer.
I highly recommend trying the cream blush route from them!
