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?

Awesome

I love this product as a blush. It is the perfect shade and pigment color!!!I have yet to try it as an eyeshadow, but I'm sure it would work well also.

Great warm toned blush

Although good year round, I can't wait to rock this in the summer. It's the perfect combination of warm toned coral, with a hint of golden shimmer that will compliment most skin tones. Simply beautiful.

Hot hot hot!

Love this shadow/blush! It looks better on me as blush, so I use it that way. It's perfect for pale-olive girls with dark hair and eyes, like me. :) It gives a subtle glow that suits all different complexions, but seems particularly good for us fairer girls. Definitely looking at getting the full-size!

A little goes a long way

I was a little concerned when I opened this up and saw sparkles. You will not end up a glittery mess! It is a great color and looks more natural than expected. A little goes a long way. I like it!

What's all the hype?

Let me start by saying this is a great color. It's got this orangey pink thing going on that I love and it looks great with my skin color.

But, I think the color is too shimmery and glittery to be blush, I much prefer my blush to be matte like the rest of my face. As eyeshadow it would be a great everyday or office look, but the color gets dull by the end of the day. It doesn't crease, and the pigment is still there, it just doesn't have the same oomph as when it's first applied.

I will probably keep using the sample, but won't be buying the full product.

Love!

I really liked this as a blush and as an eyeshadow! I had to blend it with another blush though so that it would show up a little more, but on days where I didn't wear any other makeup, it was the perfect touch to bring some color to my face!

great color

I got this sample in my birch box last month and I'm very happy with the color and how it looks on my skin. I'm fairly light skinned but I think it has the ability to look great on many different types of skin tones.

So cute!

I love that this product doubles as a blush and eye shadow. I love the peachy tone and the subtle shimmer it has. The packaging is super cute as well.
