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?

Adorable, effective

I love the packaging, especially the magnetic closure. The peachy color does compliment my fair/sometimes-ruddy complexion, and the product is long-lasting.

Cute
Sampled

The design and packaging won me over, very cute and retro. I'm not a big eye shadow or blush girl so I'm probably not going to get much use out of it but the product quality was very nice. I'd definitely be interested in looking into their other products.

Nice and subtle
Sampled

I don't usually wear blush, and sometimes just a touch of bronzer in the summer. I thought the color would be too much, but it's really easy to work with and blend. I'm sure if you wanted to you could get a more dramatic look with this too. I haven't found a blush I like this much. The hint of shimmer is great, gives my face a nice glow.

Great Color!
Sampled

This is a great color blush with highlighter features for probably any skin color. I have lighter skin and I love peach tones. With the highlighter gold accents, it will likely be a great blush for the summer.

Amazing
Sampled

I was kind of skeptical when I opened this and saw the shade of pink...but it is Amazing! It adds the perfect amount of glow and shimmer to look like you spent a few hours out in the sun. Who could ask for more in the middle of winter? Great color!

I really liked how light it was, it went on well but I didn't feel like I had a lot on!

Not for fair skinned people
Sampled

This color was way too peachy for my skin tone. I'm extremely fair, and it was not a flattering color. No plans to buy, and I wouldn't recommend for anyone with my similar coloring.

Love it!

theBalm is quickly becoming one of my favorite brands to see in my Birchbox! I'm not much of a pink eyeshadow girl, but this product ROCKS as a blush. I'm very fair and the cold NYC winter makes me even more fair. Hot Mama is a perfect shade to rosy up my cheeks! Planning on investing in full size when the sample is gone.

Great blush!

I am fair with some natural pinkness to my cheeks, so I've never been one to buy/wear much blush. But when I got Hot Mama as a sample, I loved it! I've been wearing it almost every day, as it gives me a nice, natural flush to my cheeks without making me look like I painted on my face. Noticed I'm starting to wear through to the bottom of my sample, will have to purchase a full-size soon!
