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?

Subtle but HOT!

Love love love this color! It works perfectly as both a shadow and a blush for my complexion. Goes on well, and gives just the right amount of shimmer without overdoing it.

Cheery glow
SampledPurchased

Great blush for the summer, and will likely use it all year. Gives a really nice, sheer hint of color. I don't use foundation, BB or CC creams, so this is all the color on my face and it's enough to bring a nice color to my face with minimal make-up.

Beautiful blush!
SampledPurchased

I got this as a sample in my mystery pack with a full-size purchase and I'm STILL using the sample- and it's my #1 go-to blush. I've already ordered a full-size so I'm ready when I run out.

a little goes a long way and I love that this is pink and slightly golden. Looks great even if I'm only doing a foundation-blush day!

Perfect shade of pink!

TheBalm makes my favorite highlighters and shadows. Hot Mama is so finely milled and has the most versatile shade of pink with the slightest flicker of gold. Because I'm olive skinned, I use this over darker blushes or as a highlighter to give a really subtle glow. I will always have Hot Mama on hand at all times.

Love this color
SampledPurchased

I've tried several of these blushes, and this one works best with my complexion -- very natural color, and, as with all of the Balm products, you don't need very much, so it will last a long time.

This is a great product. One of the most natural blending blushes with staying power I have found. The color is amazing. Very flattering and natural looking. No streaking. Nice big generous size will last for a long time. Love the packaging. So cute everyone comments on it.

On my days when I'm feeling the normal blush just won't do, I pull out this sample. The golden shimmer is lovely, but it does seem to pick up more minor skin imperfections than a less shiny shadow would.

This color is perfect!
Sampled

I have pale skin and blonde hair, and I have to say this color is amazing! I don't really ever wear blush, but as eyeshadow, this is amazing! I can (and do) use it as my base color and/or my highlight color depending on how fancy I'm getting with my eyes. It's subtle enough to pop my eyes without over powering my face. Beautiful!

The perfect blush
SampledPurchased

I fell in love with this product when I received a sample! It's a gorgeous peachy-pink with gold shimmer that gives my fair skin a healthy glow without being obvious or streaky. I'm not a fan of pink eyeshadows so I use it as a blush only. It builds well and doesn't look caked on. Great for everyday use.

perfect pink
SampledPurchased

I became a fan of theBalm blush after receiving a sample in a monthly Birchbox, and bought the full size soon afterwards. I really love how it looks on my cheeks- adds a natural pink glow. I was worried, since I have some pink from rosacea to begin with- this helped my skin tone look more natural. Soft shimmer is a plus to. I have since purchased other theBalm blushes, but this one remains one of my favorites. Bonus- the packaging is compact, and has a mirror. Great for travel.
