I absolutely LOVE this. The most beautiful bronzer on my skin ever: a brown/reddish color like you have been in the sun. Not yellow, not flat... It contains tiny tiny particles of gold flex which are very alluring and vivid. You can use it on the entire face without any problems; you will not look like a disco ball. I stays put all day and doesn't look powdery. It's the only product that mimicks the sun. On the dark side like a true bronzer ALWAYS should be. This must be the most expensive bronzer on earth: compared to La Mer, La Prairie and Sisley this is more expensive as it only contains 6 grams of bronzer. 6! In the end it gets cheaper as it is very pigmented.

So this baby is a cult classic. It’s the default-always-looks-good highlighter/shimmer. It’s just a really lovely decently sized compact with a beautiful pearly pale gold formulated shimmer inside. The powder isn’t so finely milled that it’d give you that “wet” look, but, it does always give a very beautiful pigmented sheen that I personally adore. Is a safe bet, from a bomb company, and the packaging is cute AF. So glad I got it.

For reference I am about NC20-25. Light medium skin tone with yellow undertone. This I use as blush or a blush topper. A tad too dark for a highlight on my skin. Its fairly subtle, No visible flecks of glitter at all. Beautiful rosy pink glow effects when I use this. Texture is very velvety smooth and not chalky. Lasts fairly well. After about 12 hour wear I can still see it on my cheeks. I love this, reminds me a lot of the Benefit Rockateur Blush. I love that one as well. Highly recommended!

This can be used as an all over bronzer or contour. I have a medium skin tone that tans easily. The shade for me is a slight tan effect when I am lightly tan, or a contour when I am medium toned. It only takes a light hand when bronzing otherwise is can look a little muddy. I using more for bronzing than contouring but works well enough to do both. This is something that I pack when traveling since it is a 2 in 1 product.

I got this as a gift and it was a nice way to test out The Balm products. It's a cute, slim palette but I think it's definitely better for medium to medium deep skin tones, most of the face products are not very flattering on pale tones. I like that the palette has a seperately flap over the lip/cheek products, it's such a simple thing but makes a big difference. My biggest issue is that the theme is travel, but I would be hesitant to pack a palette that is this fragile. Either way it's a cute idea and the packaging and names fit perfectly.The eyeshadows are not my favorite but they are fairly pigmented, they blend well and a few are standouts. Tervetuloa is so soft, buttery and blendable, I honestly reach for this palette for it. I truly love it and I'd love it in a single. Benvenuto is a reflective satin pink but it is chunkier, kind of thick in texture like UD Fireball. Welkom, Bienvenue, and Bienvenido are all nice, buttery shades but I need other shades to work with them. I will probably use these shades and then let this go, the others are either too glittery or repeated in my collection. The bronzer, Croeso, is far too orange for me. Too orange to even be used as an e/s, it is at least a matte though. Huan-Ying is the only blush of the four that I can pull off. I find that these are some of the most pigmented blushes I own, too much for my preference, but I do think they all apply decently. Even the cheek stains were suprisingly blendable, on the lips they pack a serious punch. I think the colors chosen work for many looks but not necessarily with the eyeshadows in this palette.I have to say I do not like the H/L in Kuwakaribisha much, but I have so many products in that category it's hard to rate it fairly. Products have advanced so much in even just the last 12 months, and this is more powdery and shimmery than I like. Not so much with glitter but the shine seems to emphasize texture on me. I hear it's basically the same formula as Mary Lou-Manizer.

New holy grail!!! Loved it! It fit my neutral tone fair vanilla skin perfectly! It’s so soft and beautiful I seriously had fallen for the shade. Though it gives a matte finish it’s in NO WAY flat, it’ll give you a sexy cute flushed look and such a healthy glow... day to night!! Btw fave packaging out of all the blushes, sexy/funny/elegant style.... just like what the blush gives you!

Realllly nice introduction to TheBalm’s stuff, high quality everything and decent sizing as well. Honestly is perfect on the go, I used it all the time on the way to work not worrying about forgetting my lipstick or bronzer and always knowing I can make a quick shadow look that nearly can’t be done wrong. I gotta say, although I love the packaging’s design and PROPS FOR THEBALM for making a separate flap for the cream formulas, it does get dirty after a while and it did open in my bag about two times. I don’t know why but the Shady Lady shadow (shimmery gray one, last to the left) keeps on crumbling and breaking in the pan... in general I wasn’t crazy about it since it was less of a vibrant gray and more of a dirty lacking luster finishes. Other than that I’d honestly buy the palette just for the blushes, bronzer and the oh so well known Mary Lou!

I like it! Brings up just enough warmth to my face with the peach tone that it has yet still gives that healthy flushed pink hue with a lovely matte finish. I’d definitely recommend this one to fair skin and vanilla gals out there. Really cute packaging, I love TheBalm’s women empowerment we-like-cute-boys style!

this a soft pink blush, when it is swatched with a finger it pulls more coral peach, also it is described as a matte, but I notice a pinky/gold sheen, but it does not translate when applied to face with a blush it looks matte on the face and pink not peach or coral. For this reason I can use to work or out at night. I am not really a pink blush person, but this is one of the few pinks that I like to wear.

This is one of my everyday used blushes. This is my no think blush, I will use it to work and on nights out. This is what I wish NARS Orgasm was. It has a gold sheen that I love, not to glitter but a nice sheen highlight that I appreciate I don't really like highlighters on my oily skin. It is long lasting and can be sheered out or with a slightly heavier application can really intensify the gold sheen. It is my only not matte blush that I love.

I would call this a matte slightly darker peach coral color. This is my favorite of the Instain blushes as it is matte, and a true peach color that works well for my medium skin tone. It is long lasting and I would recommend for light to dark skin tones. It is a rich smooth formula it has a neutral undertone that I appreciate since alot of peach blushes tend to have cooler undertones.

This is a very bright pink color. It gives a flushed effect to the cheeks and works great with most skin tones from fair to deep. It is long lasting and a little goes a long way. It is one of the very few bright pinks that I wear routinely.

This is a strawberry coral color that is very long lasting. I managed to wear for 12 hours and still looked freshly applied. This color is perfect for medium to deep skin tones. If you are fair just be warned it is a very potent color but can be sheered out for a light wash of color. If worn on bare face it will leave a slight coral stain.

I was really hype hearing about Photobalm foundation. I never use powder foundation so the result is a little bit surprising for me. First, the foudation has a light coverage but somehow it looks quite cakey and cracking on me. Perhaps its resulted from my dry skin. Whenever I use it, I never felt heavy on my face which is a good thing. The product did stay for a long time (I put makeup on around 7 am and clean my face around 6 pm). The product seems to have no fragarance as I did not smell anything.The package is as usual, a carton with magnet on it-which is strong and make it well kept. Overall the size is fine so you can take it to your purse. I will not purchase again because of unfitness to my skin.

The tip is sharp, the color is very highly pigmented, it's super black AND super matte. The only downside is that it's not waterproof. But it is also a good thing, because I also appreciate how easy it is to remove without causing redness to the skin due to excessive rubbing.
PLUS, I adore the packaging design. I'm always a sucker for these types of vintage designs, and The Balm has always been my favorite, aesthetic packaging wise.
