About a year ago, I feel madly in love with blush. I used to collect shoes, but then lipsticks took over. I don't quite know how it happened, but the magical, transformative nature of THE BLUSH abruptly commandeered my heart. I now have a stupid drawer full of the addicting stuff. My face isn't complete without it. This Instain blush from TheBalm is a newly-acquired friend. I own one color, and what a color! "Lace" is like a hot pink punch of flowers to the face. It is a truly unique color and soft-not-powdery formula. It is one of my longest-wearing blushes!
Because of its pigmented superpowers, I use a Real Techniques Stippling Brush and gently dot and swirl up the side of my face to my temples.
TheBalm Instain blushes retail for $22.00 for 6.5 grams of product. (I scored mine for a mere $11.00 on Hautelook.) As usual with TheBalm, no talc is involved and no animals were tested.
