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?

Pink and Peachy
Sampled

Perfect blend of Pink and Peach. Will look good on most skin tones. I will mostly likely purchase when I run out of my current blush.

Love the packaging. However, I am not a sparkley person. Would have been great in a matte.

Great Product
Sampled

This is the second product from this brand that I've gotten from Birchbox and I'm quickly becoming a fan. I like this color, although I usually go more pink with a blush. The packaging is great. It's clearly more than one use, and there's a magnet on it to keep it closed to the elements that occupy my bathroom.

Great and peachy, even on a fair skinned red head.

I tend to stay away from blush because I'm so fair and I don't want to look like I have rosacea. But this peachy highlighter give me a healthy glow, even in New York winter weather. I was really pleasantly surprised. I'm enjoying using my sample size to brighten up my cheeks.

Subtle glow

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
Sampled

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.
