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?

Love It!

I was pretty skeptical at first that this product would blend well with my skin tone because most "one size fits all" products do not... but I was pleasantly surprised when this peachy gold-pink looked AMAZING on my skin! It also looks amazing on my friend's skin... and just as amazing on my mom's skin.
Right now I use this product mostly as a blush... it infuses my cheeks with a healthy-looking glow that can be worn as part of my everyday routine, but it can also intensified to more dramatic and obvious levels of glitter.
Basically... I like it. I like it a lot. Also: since I've barely put a dent in the sample after a month of use, I can only assume that the full-size product also lasts a while.

Great!

I have wanted to try a peachy blush, and this was a great sample! I loved the way it made me look healthy without looking like a doll. The only thing was, the first day I used it, my husband asked me why I had rubbed gold all over my cheeks! :) It does have a gold sheen to it, but I still really liked it a lot. A great box item!

I like this better for blush than shadow. It has a really nice peachy shimmer, without being too over-the-top. The only thing I think they could change is the packaging. Not a big fan of the way it opens - plus the text is sort of hard to read (where it says blush/shadow). Other than that - great product! I'll probably buy it when I run out.

Great coral/gold glow!
Sampled

Great as an eye shadow...didn't yet try as a blush since the sample size made it awkward to get at it with my blush brush. Goes on as a great goldish coral and toss on a little bit of gold sparkle over it and it's a perfect beachy color that gives those like me (with fair skin) a great bright eye'd look! Will most likely buy the full size once my sample is gone!

I have fair skin and this gives me the perfect blush color without overpowering!

Not my shade

I think that perhaps if this had been more in line with my skin color I might have liked it. The color I received was an orangy-bronze, definitely didn't go with my pink undertones.

Decent blush, too bright for eyeshadow
Sampled

Works alright as a blush if you use a very light touch, but is a little intense for an eyeshadow - might work on someone tanner than I am, but for me it looked like I had red eyes - no good!
