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?

Very Natural

I'm kinda picky when it comes to blushes, but this one looks very natural on my skin.

Beautiful

This blush is very natural and the shimmer gives the perfect amount of reflection. I had not tried this brand before but I will take a closer look now!

Gorgeous Peachy Shimmer

Love the peachy, shimmery glow this gives. I think it would complement most skin tones but I love how it looks on my tan/olive skin tone. It reminds me a lot of that other *infamous* blush that begins with (in fact I immediately thought of that blush when I opened Hot Mama). I was not familiar with The Balm products and the packaging reminds me a lot of Benefit. I do like this blush.

This is the best color. I will totally be ordering this when my sample runs out. Perfect peachy-pinky-bronzy. Love it, thanks!

Gorgeous Color!

I received Hot Mama in my February Birchbox and I am absolutely IN LOVE! The goldish peach/pink color is so flattering and I can totally see myself using this as one of my summer staples. The finish is not too shimmery and it comes on nice and smooth. This is definitely on my to-buy list!

Love it!

I normally never use blush, but I love this! It's very natural looking and can't tell I'm wearing it. I also like that I can use it as a highlighter and shadow.

Very Versatile

Love the color! Works very well as blush or eyeshadow. It gives me a nice subtle glow. I like how it's not a typical pink tone but a nice coral/ peachy color.

Love it!

I am so impressed with this product. I first tried it as eyeshadow and it worked great--it went on smooth, even, and stayed on all day with no creasing. It also blends really well with my other colors, which was nice for creating a unique look--I always love trying a new eyeshadow. As far as a blush, I really loved this on my cheeks! It was so easy to apply, I could even use my finger if I was in a rush (of course, a brush is more ideal). When I put a little on my cheeks, it looked so nice and natural and gave me a really great glow and color! LOVE it!!!!

Perfect color!
Purchased

I loved the sample of this product in my Birchbox so much, I had to order the full size! I'm very fair skinned and this is just the right shade of blush...I don't have to look washed out nor do I look like I've caked on my blush. Great size, and great product!

Hot mama indeed!

I'm not a blush wearing kind of gal, I just have never really found something I like enough on me to be consistent. This however has made its way into my daily makeup ritual and I do not see it falling to the side. It is light enough to almost be thought of as a natural rosy undertone but definitely gives my face some oomph that I never even knew it was lacking!
