The Balm - Instain Blush Swatches - Lace, Toile and Pinstripe

The Balm revamped their website & reopened April 1st w/ a 50% off sale. The site crashed quickly. It's still not up!

Anyway, I got lucky & was able to view their website through a back door link. I only wanted to see their new 6 instain blushes but after seeing them, I couldn't resist. I LOVE blush. I wanted to order all 6 but I was good and got 3. I was only good because hubbster was sitting right next to me - ha ha.

I got pinstripe - a shimmery plum. Toile is a gorgeous strawberry color and lace is bright pink. These blushes are a stain in powder form. They also have argyle (petal pink), houndstooth (mauve) and swiss dot (peach) . These retail for $22 each.

Toile, Lace & Pinstripe



There is some serious pigment in these instain blushes. Surprisingly, pinstripe is the most pigmented of the 3. I love the color - it's gorgeous. Toile and pinstripe are hard to blend - I suspect lace is the same way. I have toile on one cheek and pinstripe on another - I couldn't chose!

I don't know when their site will be back up again.They are going to announce their re-opening on their facebook page. They are supposed to have a 24 hour 50% off sale upon re-opening. Bad news - all the instain blushes are on back order until May :(

UPDATE 4/8
The site is back up!

Pinstripe is the most appealing to me.
