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?

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.

Spring blush

I really like the color of this blush. I also like that it has a bit of shimmer to it, since I don't wear bronzer or face powder, I like that this blush adds some of that to my cheeks. The only thing I'd say is the color is a more spring/summer blush for me. But maybe I would feel differently if I had a bit of a tan going on.

Very pretty
Sampled

It's a lovely blush. I don't look great with pink eyeshadow, and I don't wear blush often, but this is a really pretty shade, and it doesn't look really powdery.

Super Cute, Super Easy

My ONLY complaint is that I seem to get way more product "per swipe" than I need so I'm constantly having to blend with powder or tap my make-up brush to make sure I don't put it on too heavy. Other than that it is a fantastic, "universal," color that is super portable and can give your face that "instant" pick me up late in the day or after a workout (when you've sweated off everything else). Highly reccommend even if you do not usually wear blush - this and mascara can literally make a face with no other products needed!

Pretty, Feminine Glow

Love this blush! It's a beautiful color to warm up my fair complexion. It's a great blush to use on it's own, but I also like using a light hand to put on a more matte pink blush and then popping a little bit of theBalm on the apples of my cheeks for an extra pop of color.

Gorgeous Color!
Sampled

I'm not usually a fan of shimmer blushes, but this one is so gorgeous that I love it. Subtle enough that you can wear it during the day or you can apply more and wear it for a night out.
