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?

I love this product! I have light to medium skin tone with a very slight olive tone. I have dark brown eyes and platinum hair. This color is so soft and gives me the perfect pinkish hue on my cheeks. It doesn't come out looking shinny or like a cheek highlighter it just give a little color. In the winter my skin is very light and this makes my completion almost doll like. But it is too pink for my eyelids. I will definitely purchase this when my sample runs out!

Pleasantly surprised!

Shimmery blushes have always put me off, but I was pleasantly surprised by how nice this looked on my skin!
Now, I will note that I have VERY pale skin (I'm often too light for most foundation lines aside from Kat Von D). So the deep tone was intimidating, especially when I heard how pigmented they are. And that proved true! But I simply used a VERY fluffy brush and was quite careful in applying it. I was happy with what I got! The shimmer fades into my skin well, making me look glowy, not glittery. A very good product.
Only issue I had was, oddly, that it was a bit TOO pigmented. It's very easy for me to go too far, so I really have to be careful. If you're any darker than me (which is likely) you might not have to worry about that too much though.

Love this color. I use it mainly for blush but have also used it for a shadow. I had it as a sample but plan on buying a full size!

The color is beautiful when you use just the right amount. The color was a little off for my skintone but when mixed with a lighter blush ended up being perfect

I really like that this is eye shadow and blush all in one. It's super convenient to throw in your purse and not have to keep a whole bag of cosmetics with you.

Love this shade and product! Works more as a shadow for me because I'm a medium skin tone. Great pigmentation and consistency!

My go-to summer blush
Sampled

I LOVE this blush! The color is really pretty (think: Benefit's Coralista, but amplified and a little more gold shimmer), and looks great on my skin in the summer. The shimmer isn't heavy, but just enough to give a glowy look. I always get compliments on it, especially when outside. As the day goes on, the coral-pink color stays put while the shimmer does fade away.

I love this product, the color is soooo pretty! I use it as eyeshadow really makes brown eyes pop. You can also use it as a blush too!
