theBalm Toile Instain Long-Wearing Staining Powder Blush ($22.00 for 0.20 oz.) is described as a “strawberry.” It’s a bright, bold coral-pink with a barely-there satin sheen. MAC Simmer is similar. NARS Amour is slightly more muted, less warm-toned. See comparison swatches.

It’s incredibly pigmented with true-to-pan color, but the coverage is more buildable than over-the-top. I would still recommend using a lighter hand when initially applying so that you can adjust the intensity more readily. The texture is soft, finely-milled, and it wasn’t powdery. As I applied Toile to the skin, it blended out easily initially, but it tends to stick in place once it is sheered out slightly. The blush wore nine and a half hours on me without fading, so it lived up to its long-wearing claim. I wouldn’t describe this so much as a product that stains, as it easily removes with regular makeup remover with no extra elbow grease required.
