Oh good, I was starting to think it was just me! They’re pretty colors, but I just can’t make cream blushes work.

I was just going to say the same thing. Individual cream blushes – I like, but something about having a whole palette of them seems off to me. Maybe because I never had much luck with other cream/gloss products in palettes

If these perform well, I need to have the palette. Since I´ve been a huge cream blush fan lately, this looks like my dream come true, especially as the picture looks like there are predominantly coral and peachy shades. Lovely!

Yes!!! I tweeted theBalm telling them I loved the lip/cheek creams in the Balm Voyage Palette and that they should release them as permanent stand-alone products. This is close enough 😀 The packaging though… I like the outside but the inside is a bit too kitschy for me.

I’m very curious about this palette! I don’t actually own anything from The Balm, but they’ve been on my radar for about a year or so. It’s just not a very accessible brand to me (although hopefully that will change soon because I hear TheBalm will now be sold at Kohl’s – along with Lorac!) so I haven’t been able to pick anything up. I’ve wanted to participate in events on Hautelook, but TheBalm is always on there when I don’t have money to spend right on that day.

I’m interested in Cindy and Mary Louminizer, Balm Jovi palette, Meet Matte Nude palette, this palette, and all their blushes!!

These colors are very pretty and I can actually picture myself using those colors as blushes.

it is already available at some Kohl’s. You have to call the Kohl’s you are thinking about and see if they are going to be getting “the beauty bar.” It seems that they are putting it in areas where the brands are not immediately accessible: The Kohl’s in Fresno and Clovis (California) have these brands in store, but the Kohl’s in San Jose and San Francisco do not. The Central Valley of California only has one small Sephora. Kohl’s does have the brands online already and they can be bought with Kohl’s cash and other promotions that Kohl’s does (I just found out that Kohl’s cash never expires even if it says that does!) and Kohl’s has a generous return policy where you can order online and return to any store if you do not like it. I got quite a few Lorac items for Xmas that I ended up returning due to not liking them in person.

Hm…looks like this would be a good way to get into some more blushes without having to buy a bunch of different ones! I’m curious to see how they perform!

so for some reason that cannot be ascertained my skin is dry and peeling but breaking out. My powder blushes are all looking chalky so I may give these whirl. If they do not work out, at least I will be able to have a variety of Lippies in a convenient container on my desk (I think this will fit nicely in between my Agency Policy and Procedures and Program Procedures….my boss just smirks at the all the girly things that I have brought into the all male office). I may just need to cover the front due to the innuendo that is oh so fun, but oh so not work appropriate!

I bought this during the sale for older dry skin I Love cream. I apply it and use a highlighting blush on top . I Love the Balm products and I’m sure I’ll Love these. I just wonder if these will dry out.

This is just beyond adorable and the products look lovely, as to be expected by TheBalm. However, I echo others when I say I wish the blushes were powder. But that’s definitely a personal thing. I have difficulty as it is using my cream face products.

I think the package is cute enough without having to add the picture of guys on it. That alone puts me off, but I’ll check it out the product anyway.

I want this! In fact, I can’t wait to get it. Not crazy about this as a blusher, but would love to see how it looks on the lips.

Oh well….more money spent on more makeup I don’t need. lol.

I love the concept of this palette but I am not into lip palettes at all. I like being able to toss them in my bag for touch ups. I love theBalm’s creativity though!

I took advantage of the sale and scooped up this palette. I love their products. They are pigmented and I absolutely adore the packaging!!
