Birchbox Breakdown

We’ve never been satisfied with basic blushes. Too often, they look amazing in the compact but leave behind flat streaks of color. Not so with this peachy pink powder, which has a subtle infusion of golden shimmer to give off a 3-D effect. It also works as a shadow and highlighter, letting you achieve pinup-worthy results with just one product. And did we mention that the cute mirror compact will look right at home in your purse?

How it Works

This illuminating powder is one of the most flattering blush, highlighter, and shadow combos we’ve ever come across. It combines subtle color with light-reflecting silica particles to give us the peachy keen complexions we’ve always wanted. Wear it on your cheeks, your lids, and wherever you want to add a dose of shimmery warmth.

How to Use

Sweep up a small amount of powder with a blush brush, and brush on the apples of your cheeks and your cheekbones. Next, use a shadow brush or the pads of your fingers to apply the pigment as a shadow. Feel free to add a touch to your jawline, the bridge of your nose, or anywhere else the light strikes (we promise the results will be stunning).

PERFECT COLOR OF BLUSH WITH MY FAIR SKIN

I was really happy with this color despite my original apprehension. I don't like to have a lot of color on my face, but if I use a small amount of this it's the perfect shade. It's nice and soft and of course adorable packaging.

Perfect blush!

I loved this blush. By far my favorite blush I've ever used. The gold shimmer really makes it a wonderful summertime color.

Nice blush

It's a pretty nice blush. It has a nice texture and gives a soft glow/pink look with decent lasting power. However it's a little too shimmery for my personal tastes but would be great for those who like and want that extra dimension.

Pretty

I like this product a lot. It's a pretty color with nice highlighting qualities. I usually layer it over my normal blush when I want an extra pop. The sample size has lasted me for quite some time, too!

I thought this was a bronzer!

It's been over a year since I've had this sample through birchbox. I have such pale skin that when I tested the product I honestly thought it was a bronzer. Which isn't bad, it just goes on darker than other blushes I own. And since it's got a darker pinkish tone with subtle golden shimmer it fills that role well on my skin. Whoo-hoo variety! I do think the price is a bit steep though.

Awesome

I'm so excited for the weather to warm up so I can break out my Hot Mama again! It is such a flirty, shimmery shade perfect for highlighting a tan.

This is a MUST HAVE! I don't wear much but whenever I want to feel pretty, I put a dash of this on my cheeks and forehead and it immediately makes my skin looks brighter. I love it! I love blush and this is my favorite! i just wish it comes with a brush.
