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?

This product has staying power and is very glamourous. It has the right amount of shimmer and is very versatile. It can be used as a highlighter or blush.

Great color
Sampled

The color is a mix between a peach and sunset. It lasts a long time and is great as an eye shadow.

Hot Mama is just peachy!
SampledPurchased

This shade is amazing for cheeks and eyes! It's a soft pink with orange-ish sheer that reminds me of a sunset. Perfect for summer and spring.

nice for eyeshadow
Purchased

I like this product, and use it mostly for eyeshadow. It has a bit of sheen to it...so it's a rough thing to add to my daily regime in my upper 40's...but for those special times, It works. I think when I have a tan in the summer, is the best time to wear it for me...but on pale skin, it can be a bit too much shimmer.

Love dual purpose products like this

I wasn't sure how this would look but am happy to report that it looks great both as a shadow and a blush. I was afraid it might be too shiny/glittery but I think that's more about how you apply it and where you apply it. As an eye shadow it's great with just a sweep on the lid for day and a bit more can be added for evening. Great if you are going straight from the office to a night out. Using it as a blush is the same, just a touch for day and add a bit more on your cheeks for evening, along with a sweep in other areas you want to highlight. My only complaint, I wish it came in a color closer to pink and less peachy.

I have the blush and an eye shadow in another color. I like everything this brand makes. And the packaging is fun, too.

Great versatility
Sampled

I love the versatility of this product- it looks beautiful on cheeks or eyes. I find myself using it more often as a blush. It gives a beautifully subtle, healthy glow. Nice product.

So great, I've purchased it twice
SampledPurchased

I first learned about this product through my sample.

I thought "ick" - what an awful peachy colour.

How wrong I was!!

This has become my first go to for shimmer and shine. Perfect as a blush or over blush.

It's my favourite product I've discovered through Birchbox.

Love the two in one product

I love the color and the packaging is super cute. I also really love that it's two in one products, which is great for travel.

Love it!

This is a great blush-- a pop of color (probably a little brighter than I usually do) with just the right touch of shimmer. I feel like it instantly woke up and warmed up my complexion. It also had great staying power.
