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?

Color is just okay

While I love products made by theBalm, I was not too happy about the color of this blush. I'm sure some would love it, but I prefer a more matte blush rather than the shimmer that this one has.

Hot mama shadow and blush
Purchased

This blush is "just right" I found blushes too be too pink or rosy and don't blend well. Hot Mama blush is very natural and flattering.

Great blush!
Purchased

I absolutely love this blush/shadow. I received it in my box last month and have worn it every day, and just had to buy the full size. The color goes great with my olive skin, and I absolutely love the magnetic closure of the packaging, so it doesn't get over everything in my makeup bag. It also has a nice eyeshadow shade. Overall, a great product!

I love this stuff!

I have a very difficult time finding a good blush for some reason. This sample came along and I am wearing it every single day! It's a great color with just the right amount of sparkle. I'm buying it today!

Love it!

This is a great product! I love the color and it has the perfect amount of shimmer. I don't really like it as a blush but it is perfect as a shadow. I sampled it, and would definitely buy it if the full size wasn't so expensive!

really pretty!

I took awhile to sample this after getting it in the December bag but glad I finally did. It's such a pretty color to use as a blush! I haven't tried it as an eyeshadow yet, as I'm not sure how it would look on me but as a blush, it's great!

Good blush for a "natural" glow

This isn't the type of blush I'd normally buy as it's a bit orangish for my taste, but I'm glad I tried it! Balm's Hot Mama blush gives a great, almost-natural glow. I've taken to wearing this on weekends when I don't want to look too made up, but still pretty.
