theBalm's Instain® blushes are insanely staining and long lasting!Tuesday, July 29, 2014
Instain is the latest blush collection from the Balm. I wouldn't say that this is their newest since it was launched several months ago, today being the only time I was able to blog about this! It claims as staining blushes and extremely long wearing even though it is applied on top of powder. The Instain line comes in 6 shades of powder blushes: Argyle, which is a petal pink. Houndstooth, which is a mauve-shade. Lace, a bright pink blush. And Pinstripe, which is the one I received from the Balm which is a deep plum shade. A peach blush that is Swiss Dot. and a strawberry inspired blush that is called Toile.
|TheBalm Instain Long Wearing Staining Powder Blush, PhP 775.00|
TheBalm deserves another pat on the back for their packaging yet again, they never cease to spend some on packaging so that is always a plus. The blushes come in recyclable cardboard compacts with beautiful... retro(?) artwork on the front and a mirror inside. The blush shades are named after a fabric patterns so the print on the inside of each compact is decorated with the name of the blush. In this case, the name of the blush is Pinstripe, so the print of pan where the blush sits is pinstriped.
You get 6.5 grams of product for PhP 775.00 which is not at all bad! A pan with this much blush can last you a long while specially if you only need a single swipe to apply.
stippling brush from CHARM or the vegan blush brush from their Vegan Brush line (which is made from 100% vegan hair that doesn't pick up a whole lot of product) to apply the blush. Just single-swipe the brush on the pan and tap the brush once to remove excess product from the hairs, and then light apply the blush in small circular motions on the apples of your cheeks to avoid looking streaky. This trick ensures a natural look.
Will I recommend it? YES.
