Review: The Balm INSTAIN Blush in "Swiss Dot"

20:08:00

Hey lovelies,


Hope you all are doing well. Am a blush hoarder. Especially when it comes to coral or orange blushes, I can't get enough of those. Today am going to review my first INSTAIN blush by The Balm in shade "Swiss Dot". I got this during The Balm's 50% sale last month. So without further talking let's see what I have to say about this.

The Balm INSTAIN Blush in "Swiss Dot"
First of all I love the cute packaging of The Balm products. This blush comes in a small booklet style packaging with a mirror. The packaging is cute yet not very sturdy. Am not very sure if this kind of packaging is travel friendly. When I got this blush I already had this small crack on the top corner of my INSTAIN blush. So you have to be careful if you are planning to take it in bag/purse with you.

Now the shade that I bought is "Swiss Dot" which is an orange-peachy kind of shade. I was expecting it to be a bit more brighter orange blush. But it turned out to be a coral orange kind of shade. This blush is really very pigmented. You really need to be careful with application part or else you will end up applying more. It has silky smooth texture which makes it easier to blend. Luckily, this blush doesn't have any shimmer/sparkle in it. The finish of this blush is pure matte but still smooth enough for my liking. The lasting power of this blush is pretty impressive and on me it lasts almost all day in normal weather.

No doubt, I like this shade a lot and love its silky smooth texture. But honestly, for the price I was expecting more. For me, many other drugstore blushes in much lesser price have performed almost the same. However, staying power of this blush is something really remarkable. If you are looking for a nice matte, long-lasting blush which blends easily and provides a smooth finish, then you should check these blushes out for sure.


The Goods:
  • Very pigmented
  • A gorgeous coral-orange shade
  • Impressive staying power
  • Soft and smooth texture
  • Blends easily 
The Bads:
  • Packaging is not travel friendly
  • Expensive


Price & Availability: I got mine from Facebook page Infinity during The Balm 50% sale for PKR 1700/-. You can check different Facebook pages to see if any of those have these blushes in stock. For international readers, you can buy these online from The Balm for $22.00.


My Rating: 4/5
