Balm Springs

theBalm Balm Springs Blush ($21.00 for 0.197 oz.) is a muted, medium coral with soft, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had opaque color coverage with a soft, silky texture that was a little thin and a touch powdery in the pan, but it was easy to apply to the skin and blend out. It’s supposed to be “long-wearing” with a “fade-resistant formula.” The blush lasted for nine hours on me before fading slightly, which made it better than the typical blush.

Ipsy sent me one of those mini’s of Balm Springs, but I have yet to try it. Having now read your review, I think I will today! This is a lovely, softer shade that I would use as an “everyday” type of blush such as I use Essence Satin Love, MAC Oh My Passion and UD Rapture.

I’ve been using it and while I appreciate samples, The Balms samples are so small they are hard to use! I’ve been doing it though & know enough to know I want the full size of this color. (I guess it did work then, ha)

This is a really pretty blush. I am pretty well covered in this area as these are some of my favorite colors to wear so don’t need this but it is lovely.

I received a sample of this blush in my ipsy bag a few months back and I absolutely adore it! Though for some reason it doesn’t read as coral to me. It’s much more of a warm rose on my skin. Maybe it’s one of those fun shades that shifts based on skin tone 😉

The formula is fab, super pigmented but totally workable on my very fair skin (this is a rare thing!)

Thanks for the review. It looks so lovely on you!
