Do I recommend it?

Yes, by all means.

Why do I commend it?

It’s time to share the truth with you all! The only reason why I got this little beauty is because of the packaging. You would think I am a little insane but yes I guess that makes me seem like one. I got this and a lot of other balm products on a whim just because I lurrrrrvveeeeeeeee the packaging. It’s that cute! I want to own each and every product by The Balm because of the catchy packaging. Nice marketing strategy ;). Anyways moving onto the actual product now, since I did not buy it because of the quality or the lasting power or any other property of this blush so obviously I had no expectations as such. YES! I chose the color though! I wanted a peach blush since forever like a really nice peach so I got Swiss Dot which ACTUALLY. IS.A TRUE. PEACH COLOR. YES! A real peach shade that gives out that flushed kind of look to your cheeks. It looks so lovely aaaannddddd it LASTS WHOLE DAY! Honestly, no exaggeration it lasts whole day. I apply it at 9 in the morning and wash it around 11 at night. I still get the color on my makeup removing wipes. It doesn’t vanish secretly like most of the blushes do. I always had an issue because my blushes used to fade within an hour of applying them. So, I got my favorite packaging along with amazing shade and lasting power as a bonus. YO! You get yours too in any shade you love the most. I am eyeing LACE now!

Why is it a hit?

  •  Super-cute, to-die-for, girly-go packaging.
  •  Super smooth texture without any powder fall out.
  •  Lasts for about 12+ hours.
  •  Perfect flushed peach shade.

Why is it a miss?

  •  It cannot be a miss!

Beware!

  •  If you are not into cute packaging 😉
  •  If you are slightly tan because it will make you look pale.
  •  If you want to change blush during the day without redoing the rest of your make-up.

Brace it with:

  •  Bright smokey or neutral eyes.
  •  Well done lashes.
  •  Shimmer highlights in shades of peach and golden.
