the Balm Instain Blush

the Balm Instain Powder Blush is a brand new staining powder blush that will be launching on Monday WITH the new site so that means 50% Off!

You KNOW how I feel about the Balm’s blushes! Hot Mama, Cabana Boy, Frat Boy, these are all HG (holy grail) for me so the fact they introducing six new blushes, well, I’m more than a little excited.

the Balm Instain ($22) is a long wearing, staining powder blush that offers the benefits of a long wearing stain in a powder formula!

  • Pinstripe (plum)
  • Swiss Dot (peach)
  • Toile (strawberry)
  • Houndstooth (mauve)
  • Lace (bright pink)

I don’t have an exact launch date but they’ll be available at shortly.

Dontcha just want ALL of ’em?

        As always, thanks for the heads up Muse, nearly fell out of my chair here, trying to calm down and resist the urge to buy them all– I think maybe, just maybe I can control myself and just get argyle and swiss dot, these are so pretty.

        Now I just need to decide between Meet Matt Nude and Balm Jovi…

        Thanks for keeping us in the know!


        • 4/1/13 11:06 the Muse:

  • 3/28/13 20:38 Chelsea:

    My cheeks seem to just eat blush, so I have none on by the end of the day, I’m intrigued by these!


  • 3/28/13 20:52 beautybabbling:

    I want them! The sale is also extremely tempting…I don’t know that I’ll be able to resist. :-)


  • 3/28/13 20:54 lim:

    Do you know if these blushes will be available by the time of the 50% sale? If so then I’m getting 4! They look sooo pretty and only $22 so its on the low end of blush prices, so I’m super excited!! :DD


    • 3/28/13 20:57 the Muse:

  • 3/28/13 21:04 Somayea:

    I NEED these. For some reason. NO BLUSH EVER STAYS ON MY CHEEKS. it’s so annoying. I have oily skin and even if I use powder blush, it fades :/

  • 3/28/13 21:21 Icequeen81:

    love the plum one


  • 3/28/13 21:44 Lulle:

    Woohoo! Those blushes just made it to the top of my wishlist!
    I can’t wait to see theBalm’s new website, the old one is not very user friendly…


  • 3/28/13 21:51 nnabeela:

    I can’t wait for monday!


  • 3/28/13 22:26 Avalith:

    Pretty amazing since their existing blush is pretty long-lasting in my book for a powder blush. I have 2 of their regular blushes (FratBoy and DownBoy) and I NEED at least ONE of these! I am so excited! I can’t wait for your reviews and swatches 😀


  • 3/28/13 23:24 Stephanie:

    I want these! I wish they’ll be available in my country. D;


    • 3/29/13 5:03 Jenn Taylor:

      Hi Stephanie,

      I am sure these blushes can be bought at the country that you are living in since they are available online. :)



  • 3/29/13 1:08 Alli:

    Wow I am buying all of these in April 1st. Every item I have from the Balm I have loved so I know I don’t need to wait for a review to get these. I’m so excited!!


  • 3/29/13 3:32 Shadia:

    Oh, man! Please let us know how these compare to IT Cosmetics’s Vitality Cheek Stains! I love me some ‘o those, but if these are comparable or better, I just might explode!
