How 'Bout Them Apples?

 You know I haven't blogged in a long time when I'm talking about something that came in my April Birchbox, but this product is too good to forget about! 
This is sort of a cheat review as it's just a small sample (which has lasted me 2 months), but I plan to purchase the whole palette which comes in the 6 colours below. 

This was the first TheBalm cosmetics product I have used, I love discovering new brands! This is advertised as a Cheek & Lip cream, I have tried as both and although it's not pigmented enough for my lips, it's amazing on my cheeks! I've tried Benefit's Benetint & Posietint, and I have found they're not pigmented enough for my cheeks. I have never used a cream cheek product, I apply it first with my fingers and then blend it out with my beauty blender, a little bit of the Pie colour on my cheek gives my cheeks such a lovely colour. I wish this was more readily available in stores in the UK, but you can normally purchase it from Birchbox.co.uk, although right now it's out of stock! 
This product does retail at £26, but I would still highly recommend this product, as it does last a long time and it's SO pigmented! It also has 6 colours in the palette, which is amazing! It's a greater starter product to get into cream cheek products too.

p.s this is an unedited/unfiltered picture of how it looks on my cheeks, the first time I tried it!
