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?

Great Blush
Sampled

The color is beautiful, it goes on nicely and it lasts well. I really liked this blush and I am not usually a big fan of blush. I plan to buy it.

Love this stuff
Sampled

I'm so glad I received a sample of this product because I probably would never had tried it on my own. The powder is light and airy with a touch of shimmer, and not heavy at all. I have used it on my checks and eyelids, and even dabbed some on the center of my bottom lip for added depth.

Great product but pricey
Sampled

Great product. Very pigmented. Natural looking blush with gold specks. I would purchase it again but $20 seems pricey for a blush. Elf sells something similar for $3 that is pretty much a dupe for the Balm Hot Mama.

Scared of the shimmer, but love it!
Sampled

I had heard positive things about The Balm blush and was excited to receive a sample. When I opened it I was very scared of the shimmer. As a rule, I tend to avoid shimmer on my face because it can exagerate pore size. The shimmer in this blush is intense in the package but gives a diffuse glow on the cheek. I have fair skin and the color is beautiful. I reach for this sample over my stand-bys. I will difinatley be purchasing this!

This blush has just the right amount of shimmer to it. Also looks great as eye shadow. Will definitely purchase again.

Shimmer Rouge
Sampled

I enjoy the rosy shimmer of this blush, but due to my pinkish skin tone to begin with- I feel like its just not for me. I tend to steer clear of all blushes, but I like the apricot/copper undertones to the color!

Serviceable Blush

I liked this blush, but not enough to switch from my current one. The color and texture were nice, and the packaging was cute.

I love it

I have red hair and a freckled, fair skin tone.
This product works great on my skin tone as a blush.
The coral/gold shimmer are a perfect match to my 'color scheme' as a blush.
It tends to wash me out as an eyeshadow.

I can see where this color would not be great on certain skin tones, but for those of us with 'red' tendencies and fair skin it's a winner!!

The Balm Hot Mama!

I absolutely loove this blush! It is such a beautiful shimmery color and it lasts all day!! I only have to barely dab my brush in and that applies the perfect amount of color to each cheek.

Kind of bright for fair skin
Sampled

I am pretty fair skin with pink undertones and while I used very very little, my mom commented on how red my cheeks looked, asking if i was feeling okay. Soooo, it definitely gives you a realistic flush, just a little too intense.
