theBalm® cosmetics Hot Mama Shadow & Blush All-in-One

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?

Too Red

I am an Asian with very pale skin. This blush was way to red. I'm planning on giving it away. The packaging is cute, however.

Good product

I like how the product is little and fits anywhere practically. People asked me if it was a matchbook and were surprised when I showed them it was makeup. I am not sure if the product I had was a sample or not but it was awesome. I would love to try it in another color that is more suitable as Birchbox sent it to me to try, but it was too orangey for my complexion.

Too much gold for me.

I purchased this a while ago, wore it a handful of times, and then gave it to a coworker. There is a lot of rather sparkly gold in this. It wasn't flattering on me. I prefer more subtle shimmers or matte colors to bright gold glitters.

Great color, small package

Love this blush! It's a flattering rose color for my olive skin. Also works great as a simple nude eyeshadow to swipe on before running out the door.

Wish the palette was a big larger as I find it had to get enough of the product on a normal sized makeup brush.

not a fan of the color

I was not thrilled with the color of this multi-purpose powder with that gold sheen mixed in. I dont find that it blends in naturally with your skin color. I like coloring to look natural but just slightly enhanced. This doesn't do that for me, it is very obvious that it is sitting on your skin.

Great as a shadow but not as a blush

Loved this product as an eye shadow but it did not work well as a blush. It didn't blend at all and sat right on top of my skin, really exaggerating my pores. I absolutely love the color and packaging though! Based on my skin type, I'd purchase this as a shadow and not a blush.

Too sparkly

I wasn't crazy about the gold undertones and it was to sparkly for day wear for me.
With medium skin I didn't think the pink color was rich enough for me, go more shine than tint.
I will wear it for highlights on night I want to shine.

Great texture. Prefer as eyeshadow.

I really loved how this went onto my skin well and stayed for an extended time.

I'd say I have medium skin and this color did nothing for me as blush; you couldn't tell I had it on. It did however work well as an eyeshadow color for my blue eyes.

Best for tanned skin

This is very pigmented, which seemed to be a downfall on my light complexion. I have yellow undertones and this looked almost clownish if I accidentally got a tad too much on my brush. I'd bet it would look better if my face were darker. As for an eyeshadow, it would be far too pink for my liking.

Blush

I liked the color and a bit of sparkle that it gave me when i used it as blush. I dont really use it as shadow.
