theBlam Instain Toile & Swiss Dot

theBalm Instain long wearing, staining powder blush comes in six shades Argyle, Lace, Houndstooth, Pinstripe, Swiss Dot & Toile. All the colors are really pretty, it was hard to choose between them so I finally decided to go for "Toile" and "Swiss Dot" which I am absolutely in love with.
What It Claims:
theBalm's long wearing, STAINING powder blush is a fashion must have! With six shades, perfect for all season and skin tones, it will give your cheeks color that won't quit.

My Thoughts:
Toile is a gorgeous strawberry pink with a satin finish while Swiss dot is a warm toned peach with matte finish which can be worn for an every day look.
One of my main reasons to buy almost everything from theBalm cosmetics is their super cute packaging. Enough said! 
Like the other balm blushes these come in a book like cardboard packaging.I like the way each packaging shows the color of the blush inside with the picture of a retro woman in front .
The formula feels soft and blends amazingly. Pigmentation is intense and buildable, you have to be careful during application you might over do or exaggerate it. These are long lasting and stay put for more than 6 hours without fading.
Altogether these blushes are a must have and my current favourites.

-highly pigmented
-long lasting
-easy to blend



These blushes are priced at 22$ for 0.23 oz. I got mine during theBalm sale from facebook page International Makeup In Pakistan, the owner is such a sweet heart.
