Birchbox Breakdown

There are a few occasions in life when we blush naturally, like when we run into an old crush or make eye contact with a handsome stranger. Since those events happen rarely, we like to fake it with this flirtatious blush. The ultra-fine powder blends seamlessly into your skin, while the dusty rose hue gives it a natural flush. Plus, it comes in an adorable compact with a built-in mirror and can double as lovely eye shadow.

How to Use

Grab your favorite blush brush and pick up a small amount of blush. Tap to get rid of any excess. Smile, and blend into the apples of your cheeks. Since the formula is ultra-pigmented, you only need to use a little to achieve a rosy flush. You can also use your fingertips or a shadow brush to sweep the powder onto your lids.

Dense beautiful color
Purchased

I was worried when I opened this up, but it promised a dusty rose color and BOY did it deliver :)) very rich color suitable for blending and gave me a natural flush. It replaced my estee lauder I thought I'd never live without. great products from The Balm!

Awesome product!
Purchased

I have all three(thinking there's only 3...) blushes from theBalm now.. I just love these! They have cute packaging, which is slim & easy to store. They hold A LOT of product & they are nicely pigmented. My only negative- I "need" MORE colors! Frat boy & down boy are matte. Cabana boy has a beautiful sheen, but NO glitter which I have come to really dislike in blushes, but to have a nice subtle sheen just seems to make you "glow".. Can't say too much more, but what more could/would you want from a blush? Oh yeah.. They aren't too pricey either! =)

theBalm's full line of blushes are AMAZING. Cabanna Boy is a gorgeous, just came in from the sun- colored blush. I am incredibly pale (NX10 range) and it looks great on me!

Good pigmentation in color, but doesn't blend naturally
Purchased

I usually use Benefit brand blush, but my favorite makeup blogger, MaskCara, raves about Cabana Boy in a lot of her tutorials. I, however, am not a big fan because the color doesn't look natural on my olive skin tone and because it doesn't blend out well. Instead, I look like I have 2 streaks of red across my cheekbones that eventually just wipes off as the day wears on. Plus, I like a little shimmer in my blush to double as a highlighter - cabana boy is just an opaque color with no shimmer.
So, may good for other people, but just wasn't right for me.

Love It!
Purchased

First off, I'm a sucker for packing and this caught my eye. I love makeup that has that vintage look. However, the product is amazing. I love that it's not too pigmented. If I want to build more I can, without the feeling of me being too heavy handed. The color is great with any skin tone ( I'm dark) and it gives that natural flush of color. You have to try it, I cant wait to buy more products from this brand.

Great service from the "cabanaBOY"
Purchased

Like I've said before, the Balm cosmetics Company has the best names for their products!!! I put my makeup on with a smile, not just because of the name but because I think the blush has just the right amount of color to make me look natural. I love it.

Looks very natural!

Its just like after you pinched your cheeks, the color shows. It definitely suit fair-medium skin type :) #worth buying
