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?

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.

Great, but not for me
Sampled

I've been very excited to try this product for quite a while now, so I was ecstatic to get it in my box. Unfortunately, it did not meet my expectations. The color was not exciting or very pigmented.
I'll give it another try, but disappointed so far.

Fabulous blush!

I love this color. So great! The color would look better on me during the summer when I have a tan, but I can't wait to use it! The shimmer really does give a 3d effect. No use in a highlighter, this seems to do the job of both a blush and highlighter.

Perfect

This is a great product to give you just the right amount of color and shimmer either on top of or without another blush or bronzer

Adds a nice, subtle highlight
Purchased

I think this is a great product. It adds just enough of a subtle highlight to my face that it doesn't appear obvious that I'm wearing blush. Honestly just looks very natural. I also love that I can apply it to my browbone, nose, anywhere on my face that I need a little bit of a highlight. The compact is so small that I do find it a bit difficult to get a lot on my blush brush. I've been using an eyeshadow brush to apply it instead. The packaging is really cute, too.

Hot Mama

The Balm products never disappoint. I prefer this particular shade as a blush rather than an eye shadow. Very summery and perfect for a light shimmer at the beach.

I'm not a big fan of blush powders on myself....UNTIL THIS ONE....it works perfectly on my skin tone. Very pretty shade.

Good color. Stayed on well. Just think that there are many similar products for less.

Hot mama shadow

Color may not work for all skin types! Shows up more intensely and pink on paler skin... Easily rubbed into other areas if you touch face after application! However, I am not an expert at applying blush so I may be the problem!

This blush is perfect! The shade is spot-on...even on my fair skin.
