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?

Not too bad!

I was a bit skeptical at first about the color of this product but after using it for the last few days and comparing it to other blushes I've used before, its fantastic! The shimmer is great without being too sparkly and the color goes with almost any makeup look. I haven't tried it out as an eye-shimmer/high-lighter, though.

amazing!

I have tried the Balm products before and really liked them, so I was excited to see this one in my January Birchbox. Love the color and the product goes on really well. Not too heavy, not too light - it's super easy to build it up till you get what you're looking for. Definitely going to purchase!

Lovely.
Sampled

I think my favorite thing about this product is that it has a nice shimmer to it that is very subtle. There is no crazy glitter and I don't feel like some sort of mythical creature when I step in the sun.

It's a very pretty, flattering shade and a nice subtle shimmer. I even blended some on my eyes and it was a lovely natural look. It stayed on my cheeks (and eyes) all day as well.

Really can't go wrong here.

Good Shadow

I liked how subtle but totally cute the little box was. Shadow is a good neutral color as well.

Love this little blush/highlighter/shadow! Packaging is so cute. Great size, can easily fit into my purse for quick touchups. Just enough pigment, enough shimmer, not glittery. Will probably use more as a highlighter than a blush, as my skin is a little darker, but would be great to help add dimension to the cheeks. Used today as an eyeshadow, pretty good staying power.

better blush than shadow
Sampled

I like this product better as a blush than a shadow, because of the amount of goldish highlighter inside. Otherwise, great product.

I love the idea of combining a highlighter and blush. It goes on soft and shimmery. Gives the face a natural pink glow. Love it! Will be buying.

Don't be afraid to glow...

...ok, when I saw how orange this was in the packaging I was slightly fearful. But it looks so pretty as a blush, giving a beautiful warm glow that looks so natural. I think, for me, it is less effective as an eyeshadow but I give it high marks as a blush. By the way, I am medium complexioned with a slight yellow / olive tint, no tan right now.

Nice
Sampled

This was a fun little product to sample. Kudos to TheBalm for the excellent way they packaged their samples and the generous sizes. Anyways onto this product! Its advertised to be a highlighter/blush/eyeshadow and I tried as all three. As a blush it has a bronzing effect with lots of luster..I would probably be using the remainder of this sample in that capacity. Best for a summer day or at night, might be a bit too luster-y for office/day use, but its lovely! As an eyeshadow it just made me look like my lids were irritated...just not a shade that worked on my lids. Overall a nice product, but i already have my HG of bronzers so probably will not be purchasing.
