INSTAIN Long-Wearing Powder Staining Blush 
theBalm’s long-wearing, STAINING powder blush is a fashion must have! With six shades, perfect for all seasons and skin tones, it will give your cheeks color that won’t quit.

How to Apply? 
For a picture perfect, fresh-off-the-runway look, use Blend a Hand powder brush and work it!

let's look at the packaging
I'm very tempted to buy this blush because the packaging is very beautiful and interesting , the packaging looks like miniature of a magazine 
is very unique and cute , right??
and when the packaging is opened , this 'lace' packaging decorated with lace pattern 
'Lace' is really matte bright pink color , the blush texture is a bit hard 
I was initially quite difficult to find the right blush brush to use this blush 
back of the packaging , still look so cute and pretty

I love post all about my make-up look

the pink color is very bright and make the face look more fresh, I'm also very happy with the end result that totally matte.

one thing that makes me the difficulties in applying this blush is because the color is very pigmented, make sure you apply this blush with proper blush brush and always remember "light handle" 
technique in applying is very important 
*practice makes perfect...*
because several times I failed in using this blush and look like a
I've tried to use many kinds of brushes to apply this blush 
and finally in my opinion "real technique blush brush" is the best brush for applying this blush

the results are very natural and not too much " blush " is lifted by "real techique blush brush"

and finally , this is my opinion about this product
pros :
-the packaging super cute and unique
-it's super pigmented
- it's really long lasting 
-it's matte finish
-it's mirror in the packaging

cons :
-the price is quite expensive , it's around 22$
-texture is a bit hard , so it must use a specific brush
-must be applied with light handle technique if you don't want to look like a clown
-packaging is very easy to get dirty
