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?

The Balm Products are amazing!

I received a sample of this in my January 2013 Birchbox. I use it as an blush highlighter in conjunction with my normal blush, and I like the illumination it gives. I highly recommend it for those who want to give their cheeks a little pop. :)

peachy glow

I love this blush. I am a super-fair ginger and have trouble finding blush that looks natural on me. This is the perfect product. It blends nicely and I will definitely order this product in the future!

Love it!

This color is perfect on my skin tone and I love the subtle bronze/shimmer it gives my cheeks! I feel like I just got off the beach with a nice summer tan and put on some blush!

Very universally flattering color

I had never heard of TheBalm prior to Birchbox. I was first introduced to the stain they make, then an eyeshadow, now this. I love this brand. I have purchased the stain twice, planning on purchasing the eyeshadow. I don't wear bronzer enough to prob need a repurchase of this, but I would if the sample runs out (generous size sample).
Anyways, the color is very pretty. I have dark brown hair, eyes and pale/olive complexion. Almost a yellowish color. I have to wear blush or I can look very sallow. This did a great job of adding natural color/highlight without making me look like a clown. Also, blends very easily. Oh, AND it looks pretty as an eyeshadow as well.

I really liked this blush, is light, soft, sparkly and looks very natural, it doesn't have any weird smell to it and i loved it after the first time i applied it.

Cute and lovely color

I am glad i received this through birchbox because i don't wear blush, so spending $ on a full size isn't happening soon. This came in a cute little package and the color is lovely and seems to suit many skin colors. It is a nice, soft pink that can also be worn on your eyes. Very nice.

I love this as a blush! It's just the right amount of peachy and pink for me. I have pretty fair skin during this time of the year, and it really brings me back to life! I love that it seems to go a long way too!
