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.

my favorite brand and my favorite blush!
Purchased

Really wanted to try this so used my points to get it. Loved it so much that I bought more from The Balm. Now I have a ton of their makeup and I love it all!

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.

Cheeky!

Love, love, love this blush! The first day I used it, a co-worker asked me if I had gone away for the weekend! (I am very fair and this blush gave me sun-kissed cheeks!) Yep, I love theBalm cabanaBoy blush!

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!

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.
