the Balm How ‘Bout Them Apples? Cheek & Lip Cream Palette Review & Swatches
the Balm How ‘Bout Them Apples? Cheek & Lip Cream Palette ($32) tops the charts as one of my favorite blush palettes of the Spring season. This arrives just in time for the warmer weather and brings together six fabulously multitasking blushes that can be used on cheeks as well as lips.
You NEED it.
the Balm How ‘Bout Them Apples? Cheek & Lip Palette likely won’t be available during today’s 50% Off Sale! Sadness! But it is launching soon according to our friends at the Balm so keep your eyes peeled for the release.
Far be it for me to rave cream blush as I’m more a powder girl but lord knows they did a fabulous job with this palette. You’re probably more than familiar with the Cheek & Lip Cream formula because it has been featured in popular palettes like Balm Jovi, The Muppets, and the more recent Balm Voyage Palette.
But you should probably prepare yourself as they changed the formula slightly in my opinion….!
These six blushes are thinner and softer in texture and they have a more moist feel on lips versus the old formula that was more dense less emollient and a bit drying on lips. Needless to say this new formulation is a good thing!
Crisp, Candy, Caramel
Cider, Cobbler, Pie
These have an softer emollient feel and apply, blend, and wear beautifully. Pigment is sheer to medium with plenty of options for building. Colors are vibrant, fresh, beautiful, and natural with a slightly dewy finish that wears for a solid six to seven hours without fading. On cheeks they look incredibly natural and flawless no matter how much you apply. On lips they are the most moisturizing of products but they feel comfortably lightweight and give a pretty flush of color! I wouldn’t say they stain when they wear away but they do wear for about three to four hours before fading.
I really like having a simple blush palettes like this around! I loved the Sonia Kashuk Kiss on the Cheek Lip and Cheek Palette and this is even better in my humblest! It’s a great and easy way to get beautiful color on cheeks quickly and easily!
Crisp on Cheeks
Cobbler on Lips
Caramel on Lips
Crisp on Lips
Pie on Lips
As we head into Spring you’re going to want pretty lightweight blushes and the Balm How ‘Bout Them Apples? Cheek & Lip Cream Palette gifts you with six gorgeous ones!
It launches soon and will be available at thebalm.com.
