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?

Sweet Pink
Sampled

I like the slight shimmer to this blush. It's a little bit more pink than my current shade of blush, so it's a nice option to change it up a bit. It goes on nice, isn't cakey.

Great Color
Sampled

This blush is a great color on my cheeks. It adds a little glow as well which I love. I just tried it as an eye shadow this morning and it looks pretty nice, I've never really used this shade on my eyes before so it's a good change.

Peachy Perfection

This is my new favorite blush! The shimmer is just the right amount and really makes me feel sun-kissed. The peachy color is perfect for my skin tone. I used a little on my eyelids as well and I love it!

flattering
Sampled

This is a very flattering color for my fair skin and brown hair, but I could also imagine the color being great on even darker skinned women. It almost has sort of a shimmer, not like sparkles, but kind of like a "glow" type look to it so it really makes your face look radient!

Nice Blush/Bronzer
Sampled

This was a nice blush/bronzer. Sample size is on the small side so a little hard to actually apply. Color was nice but I have others that I prefer.

Smooth, subtle color with pop

This is exactly as described - a peachy, pinky, goldy powder all in one. I've used it as shadow against my medium skin and brown eyes and had the perfect subtle pop to my eyes. Great lasting! Wish the sample was bigger so I could use it as a blush!

So versatile!

I definitely recommend watching birchbox's tutorial on all the different ways to use this all-in-one! I personally like using it with my blush for a little extra shine :)

Another product that is not a part of my usual routine, but the days that I wore it I did get compliments. Granted, they were from my friends and they'd notice the slightest change, so I recommend it. And true to the note, it does compliment most skin types, as I was worried about this, but it worked out and I have I have cafe au lait skin. If you're a daily blush wearer, this is a great product.

Love the idea of blush and eye shadow in one package. I will be keeping this in my purse for those last minute needs.

hotttt mama

They are not kidding - this product is one hot mama. I feel firey just putting it on! I liked the last sample, eyeshadow highlighter, and now this one makes me think I need to keep my eyes peeled for what's next from this brand.
