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?

I wear it everyday
Purchased

This was one of the first samples I received in my Birchbox, and it was one of the first products I ordered from the website. I usually never wear color on my checks in fear of looking like a clown. However, this blush is perfect all year long, even in the middle of very harsh Nebraska winters this color isn't too bright or offensive on my very fair(ok pale) skin. It adds just enough color to bring color and life to my checks. In the summer when I have been kissed by the sun, it adds that same feature, just a kiss of color, it looks perfect. Try it. I swear by it!

Fantastic!

When I received this in my box months ago I was apprehensive because I am not a blush or bronzer person, at all. I'm so glad I gave it a whirl anyways because it is a staple in my makeup bag now and is good year round. The high pigmented color is great because you have to use so little of it to get a natural flush and glow. Perfection.

The best blush
Purchased

I use this every day. It gives me great coral-bronze color, but doesn't overpower my light skin tone. Be careful though, it very pigmented, so use only the smallest amount or you'll end up looking like a clown.

Best Blush EVER!
Purchased

This is literally the best blush I have ever used. The reason being it has that highlighter in it so it'll just "lift" those cheekbones up. It looks good in the winter when I'm a bit more pale and it also works well in the summertime when I'm a bit tanner. LOVE it!

PERFECT COLOR OF BLUSH WITH MY FAIR SKIN

I was really happy with this color despite my original apprehension. I don't like to have a lot of color on my face, but if I use a small amount of this it's the perfect shade. It's nice and soft and of course adorable packaging.

Perfect blush!

I loved this blush. By far my favorite blush I've ever used. The gold shimmer really makes it a wonderful summertime color.

Nice blush

It's a pretty nice blush. It has a nice texture and gives a soft glow/pink look with decent lasting power. However it's a little too shimmery for my personal tastes but would be great for those who like and want that extra dimension.

Pretty

I like this product a lot. It's a pretty color with nice highlighting qualities. I usually layer it over my normal blush when I want an extra pop. The sample size has lasted me for quite some time, too!

I thought this was a bronzer!

It's been over a year since I've had this sample through birchbox. I have such pale skin that when I tested the product I honestly thought it was a bronzer. Which isn't bad, it just goes on darker than other blushes I own. And since it's got a darker pinkish tone with subtle golden shimmer it fills that role well on my skin. Whoo-hoo variety! I do think the price is a bit steep though.
