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 the color of this product! Just enough shimmer to leave a dewy finish!

A bit shiny....

This product was okay. I'm not sure I cared for it because of the color and shine.

Perfect Color

This is the perfect color blush for me! I don't use it as an eyeshadow though. This color blush with a touch of The Balm Mary Lou Manizer on the top gives a refreshing glow!!!! Love it!!! Been through several of these.

Soft, bright, complimentary.

I loved this sample and truly used the whole thing. The soft gold shimmer is perfect for my paler complexion, and more interesting than the average nude tone. Love, love, love!

this combination blush shadow applies easy and it can be used to lightly blush or for a more full make up.light texture, I would recommend this product.
neat packaging too!
the sample size is pretty small but long lasting as I only lightly blush.

This blush is a little peachy for what I normally use but was surprised when I put it on. It has a very natural glow to it and lasts all day. I will purchase it again!

OK Product. Not great.
Sampled

Product just "ok" - it does ok job but doesn't stand out as exceptional. Worked as well as the less expensive store brands but no better.  Not worth the extra cost, probably won't purchase in future.

fabulous

I love this product! I have light to medium skin tone with a very slight olive tone. I have dark brown eyes and platinum hair. This color is so soft and gives me the perfect pinkish hue on my cheeks. It doesn't come out looking shinny or like a cheek highlighter it just give a little color. In the winter my skin is very light and this makes my completion almost doll like. But it is too pink for my eyelids. I will definitely purchase this when my sample runs out!

Pleasantly surprised!

Shimmery blushes have always put me off, but I was pleasantly surprised by how nice this looked on my skin!
Now, I will note that I have VERY pale skin (I'm often too light for most foundation lines aside from Kat Von D). So the deep tone was intimidating, especially when I heard how pigmented they are. And that proved true! But I simply used a VERY fluffy brush and was quite careful in applying it. I was happy with what I got! The shimmer fades into my skin well, making me look glowy, not glittery. A very good product.
Only issue I had was, oddly, that it was a bit TOO pigmented. It's very easy for me to go too far, so I really have to be careful. If you're any darker than me (which is likely) you might not have to worry about that too much though.
