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?

Great product, small size
Sampled

I really love this product, especially as a blush! The color works well with my skin tone and the 3D effect is something I don't get from my everyday blush. However, the sample size is just a bit too small. I find I can only apply with my finger tips and wasn't able to transfer enough product onto my brush for use.

I'm not to fond of the color or package of this. the texture was ok but the color was not pretty. the purpose of this was well served the quality was too but once again I'm not a natural color person I like the blues and greens and purples.

The color of this product is great but I was a little disappointed with the size of the sample. But other than that it's great!

Blush is nice

It has a nice color, too pink for me to use as a shadow but I liked it as a blush.

Not What I Expected
Sampled

I have seen this product in beauty stores I shop at and a lot of hype about it on the internet but have never tried it til this week! I don't usually wear eyeshadow or blush anymore like I did when I was a teenager but have been interested in wearing it again lately so I was excited to get this product and it be such a neutral tone and not something outrageous! I have hazel eyes so I was unsure if it would go with my eye color because it's a little orangey which is outside of my comfort zone! When I went to apply it came off easily on the brush but when I put it on my eyes you could barely tell anything was on there so I put it on my cheeks as well hoping together they would make each other pop but I couldn't really see that neither and I have fair/medium skin! Overall if I buy this product it would be a different color because it applied well!

Cute

This was a cute sample, but a little small making it hard to use. The color was also a little too orange for me to use as a blush, but it looked ok on my eyes.

super pretty
Sampled

The shimmer scared me at first, but it's so light and subtle, it really just gives that extra je ne c'est quoi. Not too heavy on the face and easy to blend, but slightly drying and not very pigmented, but that gives you the opportunity to layer that ombré to perfection, mama.

Great Pigmentation!
Sampled

I'm in love with the color of this product--combined with the slight shimmer of it, it gives you a lovely, natural looking glow. Plus, the packaging of the sample is adorable. The only two (minor) downsides are that the size of the pot (it's quite small) makes it a little awkward to load a blush brush, and I also found the texture of the blush to be a little bit loose and powdery for my taste. However, it still applies very nicely and has excellent pigmentation.
