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?

I love this product -- it gives me a subtle peachy sun-kissed glow that really helps brighten during the cold winter months!

Great coral color with gold shimmer

This is a great color - coral and pinky with goldish shimmer, not glitter. It's the right amount of pink to brighten your face, as well as coral for a good summer color. I deducted one star because it's a bit light in coverage, so you have to apply a few times to build the color you want. I like having a shimmer to blush which adds contouring.

Great Product - Not the Shade For Me
Sampled

Unfortunately my criticism of most of my birchbox samples thus far have been that they don't complement my fair skin tone. I love that this blush has a fantastic luminescent quality that adds a HINT of sparkle and therefore a natural glow, but this shade, in my opinion, is not for us porcelain girls.

Nice concept...

I really enjoy the concept of this product... however, I felt that this was too bright and peachy to be eyeshadow (at least on me/this season... might look great on somebody else), and too coppery/shimmery to be blush.

Very Pretty

I loved this blush! When I first saw the color, I thought it would be too orange to look good on me. I tried it this morning and gave me the perfect glow. The color blends really well, and instantly brightened me up. The only reason I won't be buying it soon is that I have a lot of other blush to use first, but I'll be keeping this one my list for when I need more.

First Blush

The Balm is the Bomb! This blusher/hightlighter/shadow is just what you need as the winter trudges on. Keeps cheeks and face looking sun kissed without the over done bronzer look. Nice packaging as well, easily fits in a makeup bag for touch-ups throughout the day.

A must have!
Purchased

I'm usually not a big blush fan, but I love hot mama. It gives you a nice warm glow without a "caked" on look. It looks completely natural. It's perfect for an every day look. I don't go a day without it.

Very pretty

I love this shadow/ blush. I use it as a blush mostly and it lightens my complexion and gives a just back from vacation look! The gold shimmer is great!

Great product

Warm and summery color with lots of orange. Great for darker skin tones. Application is easy and it goes on pretty smoothly. Versatile product that can serve as a highlighter with a golden shimmer effect.
