texture

smooth

the smoothest texture, such a smooth and effortless application, and it looks great on my lips and cheeks

- Birchbox User

the light, yet liquid, yet creamy texture is the best and even though it looks a bit too bright when i put it on, a few minutes later, it seems to somehow magically adjust to my skin tone and it looks perfect

- Birchbox User

consistency

creamy

it has a great, creamy texture, and it;s easy to build color; i preferred to keep it light and just tint my lips, but you can definitely get a dramatic look if you use a lot

- Birchbox User

i loved how smooth the gloss went on and how soft and hydrating the texture was

- Birchbox User

blendability

blends well

i was super happy to receive this in my box (i was browsing other's boxes and really wanted this one) and was pleasantly surprised at how well it blends into my foundation and powder

- Birchbox User

i think i was very lucky receiving this product color because it blends with my skin tone (olive) perfectly as a blush and looks bright and feminine as a lip color

- Birchbox User

fallout

does not have fallout

it has a soft almost powdery cream texture and is very easy to apply

- Birchbox User

the texture is a little powdery for lips, but i was impressed with how well the color stayed put through lunch

- Birchbox User

pigmentation

sheer

the texture is velvety and creamy and the color is just what i was after for spring--bright, yet sheer (although it is buildable if you want more of a pop)

- Birchbox User

the pigmentation is sheer, but it allows you to build up the amount of product you want and it does last most of the day (i assumed it would fade, but by the end of an 8 hour work day i still had a slightly flushed glow on my cheeks)

Easy to Blend

I received the "pie" colored sample in my April BB and I love it! I didn't think I would like this as a cheek tint, since I've always had trouble blending other tints in the past (mainly liquid ones from Benefit - they dry way too fast, before I can blend). But wow, the texture applies so creamy, super easy to blend, and then dries with a matte finish. I really loved the bright "pie" color, it's pretty bright, but since it's so easy to blend, a little goes a long way. It seems pretty long-lasting so far, but I set my makeup with a Tarte finishing powder. I just wish the Balm would sell these colors individually vs. all together in a large compact.

Love this!

I received this sample in "Pie". I'm a sucker for cute packaging so I liked it upon opening the box. I didn't have super high expectations for the product itself because I find multi function products to be just average in texture/blend ability. I wasn't expecting the texture to be so creamy and blendable, or the color to be so flattering (a lovely pink flushed "girl next door" tint). Definitely putting this on my "to buy" list.

Cute and fun

I received the color "Pie". I am a minimalist when it comes to make-up. I never would have bought this color on my own. In the package it looks too bright, but I've tried it on my lips and cheeks for the past three days and I love it! The texture is creamy and light making it very easy to blend. A little goes a long way. The color on my cheeks lasts all day and there's no odor or scent at all. The packaging is so cute and fun!

emphasized dryness

I was really disappointed... I have dry lips and have a hard time finding a long lasting color that goes on evenly and doesn't dry me out, so i was really excited when I read the packaging on this sample. For reference, I currently use a balm/stain combo from revlon that goes on nice but doesn't stay on more than a couple hours. The product felt great going on, it has a very lovely, smooth texture that I associate with hydrating ingredients, but the color was unflattering (very barbie/bubblegummy pink) and within a minute of application the pigments clung very obviously to the dryer patches of my lips, leaving my mouth looking mottled. The color may be cute on someone with much fairer skin than me, but I would not recommend this as a stash it in your purse/grab and go kind of product- if I liked the color I would exfoliate my lips and use a lot of lip balm first. « less

How 'Bout Them Apples cheek cream

I was excited about the product when I saw it on April's sneak peek video and thrilled to try it when it arrived in my Birchbox. The texture is velvety and creamy and the color is just what I was after for spring--bright, yet sheer (although it is buildable if you want more of a pop). I was even complimented on it! Usually, blush is not something people notice (unless it's bad), so I considered that to be my cue to buy it once I finished my sample. Great addition to the BB collection!
