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?

I like this a lot for a blush, but sometimes I feel like it looks too shimmery. My face gets oily throughout the day, so by the end of the day, I feel like it looks shinier because of the shimmer. The peach-pink shade is perfect, though!

theBalm Hot Mama Shadow & Blush All-in-one

Love, love, love this product! I recieved it in my January box and fell in love. I use it for both shadow and blush depending on my outfit. As a shadow it adds the right amount of highlight to make my eyes pop. I also wear a black mascara and black eyeliner. As a blush it gives me a nice glow as I am normally very pale. Overall it's a great product!

I love this as a highlighter! It looks great and blends well. I love using on top of my blush and the inner corner of my eyes!

Purse Standby

I love this blush and think it is a great pick me up. I keep it in my purse and will put it on if I am going to dinner or happy hour after work. It is a nice face brightener after a long day.

Slightly unhappy with the color

I loved the idea of this product -- i.e., highlighter to use everywhere. However, I feel like the coloring (it skews coral/pink) was a little too heavy for my complexion. I am fair but not too fair -- not quite ivory and a little more beige -- and this looked a little silly on my eyelids all alone. However, I think that it might be perfect for summer, when I have a little more color -- the coral would compliment a bronze shade very well. I also tried layering it with other eyeshadows, and that worked very well, too. However, in my opinion, that kind of defeats the purpose of the product, at least for me -- it's supposed to be more of a 3-in-one product that you can use all over the face. So that aspect was kind of lost on me. However, I AM looking forward to using it this summer!
