  • THE “I’VE BEEN IN THE SUN” BLUSH | theBalm Instain Blush in Toile

    So we all know I needed another blush in my life like I needed a hole in my head, but when I saw this beauty on sale for half price a month or so ago, I figured it would be stupid not to buy it, right?

    TheBalm Instain Blush in Toile is a gorgeous strawberry coral kind of shade that looks absolutely terrifying in the pan, but melts into the skin in a way that makes your cheeks look like you’ve just stepped out from the sun and got a tad rosy. I’m not talking lobster red, but rather that sunkissed flush that looks amazing with a touch of tan. 
    Now these days the tan is fake, but when pair these blush with a bit of bronzer it just gives the most amazing glow that has people asking me if I have been away, and telling me how thin I look (no jokes here, three times I’ve had friends tell me it looks like my face is slimmer when I am wearing this blush. Coincidence? Perhaps, but I’m crediting theBalm on this one)

    Since these claim a sort of staining property I wanted to put the longevity to the test, and can say that this shade lasts all day on my blush eating skin. Since it is so pigmented, a light hand is needed, and I suggest a soft brush that can buff the product into the cheeks a bit for that glow from within look.

    Have you tried any of theBalm blushes? What are your favourite shades?
