TheBalm Instain Blush in "Swiss Dot": Review and Swatch

Instain from theBalm is a new line of blushes that claim to be "long wearing" and "staining". "Swiss Dot" is simply described as peach color. This cost $22 USD, to see swatches and the review, click.......
This one is simply gorgeous. It has a very warm matte peach color, but it almost reminds me of the juicy insides of papaya fruits! The pigmentation is a-mazing. The formula is smooth and buttery, not chalky at all. In terms of staining power, I think because it is so pigmented, it will stain a bit, but if you only apply very lightly, it pretty much is a normal powder blush.
I think this is a fairly unique color, because compared to most other peach blushes out on the market, it is warmer, almost a bit coral, but still peach.
Light swatch applied with blush brush.

How do you like this color, are you into peach blushes?
