So like the other the Balm blushes, this also comes in a sleeve with the exact same design. I love this feature because the store can stick all their stickers and price tags and not make the product itself tacky once the stickers are removed.
These are the ingredients of the product, for those interested.
It’s got this magnetic clasp and comes with a reasonably sized mirror. I won’t really rely on this all the time, but I personally find this a nice feature of the product.
And you can also see the statement: So many men, so little time…
I was shopping at Beauty Bar when I saw this and fell in love immediately because when I tried it, I realized that it was very very buildable. You can dust this on very very lightly for a slightly blushing effect, but build it up for a more dramatic look or for when you’re going to be in a high lighting situation.
This is the arm swatch to illustrate what I mean. You can see that it’s already nearing opaqueness on the left stripe, but you can see a just a rosy glow on the right stripe when applied thinly feathered out.

And even in hot and humid conditions this blush cooperates, too. I have worn this blush on several occasions with no air conditioning and the blush has cooperated and stayed put for about eight hours. You can expect it to stay even longer in less hot and humid conditions.
I have also taken a bath with this blush and even after the bath it was still there. I think I can safely say that it’s water resistant, and possibly waterproof…

As for value for money, given the really big pan and its extreme staying powder and longevity, I highly recommend this to everyone. This is also half the price of other blushes of similar quality so this is definitely a good buy. I also highly recommend this as a first timer’s blush purchase as this is a buildable blush and is easily controllable, and also due to what I mentioned about its large pan and staying power.
