theBalm How About The Apples Cheek Palette

As creamy cheek palettes go theBalm How ‘Bout Them Apples is up there with the best in terms of wearable shades. I’d be happy to have any of these shades on my cheeks – but of course, there’s a little twist because you can also use them on your lips. Lip/cheek multifunctional formulas always seem to work better on one or the other – I’ve not yet found the dream dual purpose lip and cheek – so I’d be using this on cheeks only I think. There are six apply named shades; Cider, Cobbler, Pie, Crisp, Candy and Caramel.

But, now. The cowboys. What in the … ? I’m totally failing to see the point of them. Sorry, dudes. Why would you even do that to a perfectly lovely fruit themed palette? They remind me of the guys in those ‘novelty’ screwdrivers that lose their pants when you turn it upside down. Come to think of it, one of the brands did a gloss where when you tipped it the man’s trousers fell down (but he was of course wearing boxers, so it wasn’t really all that revealing). I think I’d have liked this better if they’d put kittens on it – or bunnies – about as much relevance to apples as some random half-dresseds.

Nonetheless, if you like a semi naked cowboy draped over your blush, How ‘Bout Them Apples is coming to Cloud 10 Beauty HERE in a few weeks.
