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 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.

Blush++

This blush is so pretty and has pizzaz. This blush goes on so pretty giving a strong but natural color with has gold flecks that make it look girly. It is a beautiful addition to my daily make-up routine.

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.

not loving the color
Sampled

I am not loving the color of this product. I am not into peachy things. Would have preferred for it to be a little more on the pink side. It just doesn't go with my complexion.

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.

The best blush I have ever used!

I am normally not a blush girl- I do like how it looks, and I use it once in a while... But with our cold winters here my face has been so dry, dull, and paler than normal. I tried this with my bronzer and it just bring it back to life with a much healthier look. Defiantly a new MUST in my routine for the winter! It goes on much smoother and shimmery than a lot of other blushes that I have tried. LOVE it! :)

This is great!

This is such a flattering color on my pale skin, and perfect hit of natural-looking color in the dead of winter.

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.

Perfect Shade, Perfect Texture

I was a little weary at first trying this blush simply because of the creaminess of the powder -- I was worried that this would make my normal - combination skin break out with zits. To my pleasant surpise, it did not reak any havoc on my skin. As a matter of fact, I found that I really loved the results that I acheived with this blush. It looks great on bare skin and blends in seamlessly. The color with its subtle shimmer of gold highlighted and pronouced my cheeks without looking unnatural. Most of all, the texture that I had once worried about I now adore. This fine powder is creamy and delivers results with only a small amount necessary. Love the product and would recommend to anyone looking for a healthy glow!
