The Balm: How 'Bout Them Apples Review

theBalm How ‘Bout Them Apples? Lip & Cheek Cream Palette contains six shades of cream products that are designed to be used on the lips and cheeks. The formula is described as having a “smooth finish that won’t streak or fade.” With this product being a cream, I was a little worried as to how the texture would be. After wearing and trying all the shades on my cheeks, it’s definitely a true cream formula. It is very blendable and they function and wear better as cheek products than lip ones. As blushes, these are true creams, so that means they have dewier finishes. As stated, these blushes are very blendable and buildable. They are long wearing and very natural looking as well! The six shades in this palette are Cider, Cobbler, Pie, Crisp, Candy, & Caramel. All the shades give a matte finish, except Cider-which has shimmer!
Cider is a light peach with a faint hint of pink and a luminous sheen. It had semi-sheer color payoff.
Cobbler is a vibrant, orange-toned red with a luminous sheen. This shade had buildable color payoff that could be worn as a sheer, reddish tint or a bolder, brighter, candy-apple red. As a blush, it wore well for seven hours. This color mixed together with Caramel is my absolute favorite.
Pie is a pinky-red with a luminous sheen. It was buildable to semi-opaque coverage both on lips as well as cheeks. 
Crisp is a warm-toned coral with gold shimmer and a frosted finish. The color was buildable to mostly opaque color coverage both on cheeks as well as on lips. The golden sheen is less prominent when I wore it as a blush and looks perfect on deeper skin tones!
Candy is a cool-toned, bubblegum pink with a luminous sheen. It had good color payoff, and it was easy to apply and blend on the skin. 
Caramel is a muted, orange-brown with a luminous sheen and warm undertones. It had mostly opaque color payoff, and the color was buildable and blendable.

I purchased this palette from BeautySpin, which is an excellent site to find your cosmetic needs at a discounted price. For my international viewers, make sure you check out BeautySpin UK! For a more in depth review and demo make sure to check out the video below!!
