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!


  • Argyle (petal pink)
  • 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?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I need these in my life, not want, NEED! Where is this sale you’re talking about, hautelook or their website and how much? Thanks for sharing!

  • Beauty and the Scientist

    They are all so pretty and my blush obsession continues ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Chelsea

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

  • beautybabbling

    I want them! The sale is also extremely tempting…I don’t know that I’ll be able to resist. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 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

    • the Muse

      not sure lim ๐Ÿ™ mentioned that in this post. Sorry ๐Ÿ™ I know they are launching soon but can’t confirm if that will be Monday or not.

  • 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 :/
    *adds to birthday list*

  • the Muse

    just to confirm everyone the post has been updated as I got confirmation from the Balm that the new blushes will be available on Monday for the SALE!!!!!!!!!!

  • AisforAmy

    oh no.. well, there goes my resolve to start buying less makeup ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • 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…

  • 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 ๐Ÿ˜€

    • 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. ๐Ÿ™‚


  • 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!!

  • 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!

  • Kailey

    These look awesome! I also love how the packaging looks like little magazines! They’re packing is always so cute.

  • Bethany

  • Cat G

    What can I do to make sure the things I want won’t be sold out!!!

  • Jenny

    I wonder if these blushes are matte because I want to get some matte blushes…

  • Erika

    Hi Muse, which do you think of these blushes is most similar to Cabana Boy and Frat Boy. I have both and I don’t wanna buy dupes. Thanks!!

  • jessi

  • Simone

    With the popularity of theBalms blushes in the past, I’ve always wondered when they were gonna come out with new shades! Pretty exciting!

    I still need Frat Boy first!!
