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?

Eh

Not my favorite shade. Other than that, the packaging is really cute, and you can keep it in your purse for touch ups. It goes on really nice and it's versatile

Too orangey for me.

I gave my sample to a friend because she loved the shimmer. I found it too orange-y for my glow-in-the-dark white skin. Pale girls, be warned.

VERY shimmery
Sampled

I loved the color of this as a blush and I also love how it applies but, it has so much shimmer that I don't have any wish to wear it again. The huge amount of shimmer makes skin look oily/shiny!

Did not care for color

This product came in a really cute package but it's hard to get it onto a proper sized brush and the color is not very flattering.

Too bright for me
Sampled

This product doesn't apply quite right - it isn't easily spreadable as a blush, so it makes my cheeks look splotchy. The color also doesn't work for my skin tone, and definitely wouldn't want to use it as an eyeshadow.

Not the best color
Sampled

I want to love this- the packaging is so cute and I like the look of it- but it doesn't look very nice on my skin. It's almost too shimmery. I will keep it, but it's going to be for dance recitals for my daughter.

I like the shimmery sun glow look, however it's a little too peachy in color.

Just ok

I'm a fan of bronzer and blush. It's usually my go to makeup thing. But with this product I felt that the color didn't look natural on me. Wouldn't buy this stores.

Nice glimmer, but color is not for me
Sampled

I loved that this eyeshadow/blush had some glimmer to it, but I didn't really like it as an eyeshadow. It was fairly complimentary to my coloring, though not ideal.

More of a Highlighter, Less of a Blush

I have had blushes with this sort of shimmery pink color before and have always been disappointed. This time was no different. I think this product makes for a great highlighter, I would use it on my cheekbones for a hint of shimmer, but it simply does not have enough oomph for a blush. I'm fair skinned with strawberry blond hair, and I'm not using dark blushes, but a neutral or peach tone... overall pretty light. This is waaaaay too light.
