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?

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!

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!

Plesantly surprised!

When I saw this color I was a little worried. I expected it to be orangey and too sparkly, but its actually a really lovely pink. It gives you a healthy glow and a subtle shimmer. Just be careful because this color builds quickly!

Hot Mama Shadow & Blush--great for my skin tone

Great, light illuminating powder. I use it as a bronzer and the results make me look like I just returned from vacation in a sunny spot.

Great product!

I'm not usually a blush person, but this one is great. I am very fair so I have to be careful with my colors. This one goes on great, stays on and has a very natural look. Love it!

love it

The color has just the right amount of glow. It is a warmer peach, but works well on my very fair skin. Adds a nice natural looking color to your face.
