theBalm® cosmetics Hot Mama® Shadow/Blush

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?

this product has a tendency to dry out your lips. Do not like this product

Not impressed
Sampled

This color did nothing for me as a blush or shadow. I had not really heard of this brand and am waiting for birchbox to start sending more upscale brands.

Too bad about the sparkles
Sampled

This is a lovely shade of blush, and I think the quality is pretty good, but the addition of the sparkles ruins the product for me. I get that they are trying to make a something for both cheeks & eyes, but maybe sticking to one or the other would be better. Unless it's 80s night I generally don't do sparkles or go peach with my eyeshadow.

Not interested in this product in the least. Maybe for a teenaged girl or one going out on the town at an older age.

Too rosey

I used this as a shadow first when I was doing a bronzey summery look, but didn't like the way it looked. It was too red. I then tried it as a blush and was still unhappy with it's color. I was determined to like this product, and found that if i used a bigger brush to apply it, it went on a little differently and was workable.

Like the color, not the product

I think the color was fine, but the color did not last long for me at all. After a short time, it was blotchy and streaking (even over a primer and foundation).

Not for me

It didn't really show up on my caramel brown skin and I already have great highlighters that beat this.
