theBalm Cosmetics How ‘Bout Them Apples Lip/Cheek Palette Photos/Swatches/Review


I was extremely fortunate to win theBalm Cosmetics’ How ‘Bout Them Apples Lip/Cheek Palette from Birchbox because I was really, really into this palette!! And, let me tell you – this is ONE versatile palette! You can use it on your lips AND cheeks, so let’s take a look at it. Each photo will show it on cheeks AND lips so that you can get an idea of how it looks on me!







So, let’s start off with Cider and move our way down the palette. Cider is a light pink-toned neutral shade.

Crisp is the only shimmery shade in this palette. It’s a pink with golden shimmer. Probably my favorite from the palette!!

This palette is lovely! All the shades were so moist and pigmented! They felt super light on – on both lips and cheeks. I found them especially pigmented on the lips, which was really pleasantly surprising! I loved them on both my lips and cheeks, and I can definitely take this palette with me for travel, so I have such a versatile product on me at all times! I hope theBalm releases another because this is by far one of my favorite palettes!!

Thanks again to Birchbox for choosing me to review the product!!

  1. They all look great on you. Cirsp & Caramel are my two favorites on you, but they are all flattering. theBalm has such cool packaging

    • Thank you!! Funny you say that, I love them both on me, as well! theBalm’s retro packaging always hits me right in the heart! I’m a sucker for the era of pin-up girls and everything else! <3

  2. I think pie and caramel looked best on you. I loved the look of this palette when I first saw it. Can’t believe you didn’t give us a close-up pic of those hunks though 😉

  3. Stupid question but how do you apply this formula to your cheeks? I really want to buy this palatte but I want to make sure I actually know how to use it! Thank you for the review and swatches! Beautiful.

  4. Crisp is gorgeous on you, you’re right! This looks so cute- love theBalm’s packaging.
