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?

Before receiving this product in my box, I had heard all the raves about this blush/eyeshadow. I have just recently got into liking blush and was thinking about trying this. I just couldn't see myself spending $20 on a product I wasn't sure about. I'm very glad birchbox let me try it and I love it! It is a nice peach pink color and makes my cheeks look amazing! I'm not as crazy about using it as eyeshadow but as a blush it is great!

good as shadow, not great as blush
Sampled

I like how light-weight the product goes on. As a shadow, I think it's a great, subtle neutral with a little shimmer, but (and this is personal preference) it's a little too sparkly for a blush. Maybe good for a night out, but not a blush I'd wear to the office.

Nice blush
Sampled

Got the sample and loved the color. Goes on nice and smooth and blends well. Not sure if the full sized product is packaged the same way but the sample version will be great to travel with. The package has a magnetic closure lid.

Pretty

I have 9 thousand different types of blush in my makeup drawer because I can never seem to find the right color. It always looks so pretty in the package and then I take it home and try it just to find that the color is TOTALLY off, or the quality is horrible and the powder gets all over everything. But I was very pleased to find that this blush is both quality and a great color that seems to be flattering on a variety of skin tones.

Love

I love this, everything about it, the color, the packaging, and the size. I feel like it is a great size for a sample. I have used it everyday since receiving it as a blush.

My favorite blush

I love the color and give the natural glow that I only used get with a highlighter. Also, I can use it as an eyeshadow and apply some color in my lips along with a balm. A must have hands down

Feels lovely...

...but it's not the right color for me, sadly. The peachy shade would look great on someone with a more olive complexion; it hardly shows up on me (I'm a pale brunette with yellow undertones; I wear a deep rose blush typically).

The product itself feels lovely going on, very smooth. It doesn't cake up or streak. I wish they made one in a shade I can wear!

Wonderful

I really like this blush. I was afraid it would be too peachy and warm for my pale, cool skin tone, but I was surprised! It seems to work for any skin tone and has a nice shimmer.

Love!

I love this blush. It goes on light and stays on all day. It has just the right amount of shimmer to it. I haven't tried as a shadow yet but I'm sure it'll look great!

I absolutely love this blush! It has the perfect consistency which made it easily and smoothly spread across the apples of cheeks.
