There are a few occasions in life when we blush naturally, like when we run into an old crush or make eye contact with a handsome stranger. Since those events happen rarely, we like to fake it with this flirtatious blush. The ultra-fine powder blends seamlessly into your skin, while the dusty rose hue gives it a natural flush. Plus, it comes in an adorable compact with a built-in mirror and can double as lovely eye shadow.
I love the coral-ish/rose color shown online. I also liked the texture. But in reality it has more purple/plum undertones. Sent back.2
I usually use Benefit brand blush, but my favorite makeup blogger, MaskCara, raves about Cabana Boy in a lot of her tutorials. I, however, am not a big fan because the color doesn't look natural on my olive skin tone and because it doesn't blend out well. Instead, I look like I have 2 streaks of red across my cheekbones that eventually just wipes off as the day wears on. Plus, I like a little shimmer in my blush to double as a highlighter - cabana boy is just an opaque color with no shimmer.
So, may good for other people, but just wasn't right for me.
This blush is VERY pigmented. It has a nice application (when using only a tiny bit and with the proper brush), and seems to last all day. It is just a bit too bright for me, so I don't wear it often. It is also fairly matte, and I prefer a bit of shimmer.3
Now don't get me wrong this blush is great. However it was a lot darker than I expected comparing it to the picture. Also it is EXTREMELY pigmented I literally just tap my brush into it and that even seems too much. I do have very very pale skin so this is just my issue. I do like the blush a lot and I do use it I just wish it was more true to color.3
Because I've viciously pale (lightest Kat Von D shade), this shade is a bit of a beast to use. But so long as I use a VERY light hand and a fluffy brush, it looks lovely.
The shimmer is also lovely. Not glittery at all!
This is a great brand and a wonderful color! Definitely a good buy!!!4
This product had great difficulty blending with an assortment of my other makeup supplies, though alone it was visible and a great colour.4
Love, love, love this blush! The first day I used it, a co-worker asked me if I had gone away for the weekend! (I am very fair and this blush gave me sun-kissed cheeks!) Yep, I love theBalm cabanaBoy blush!4
I like this as a blush, not as an eyeshadow as it is advertised for both. It goes on heavily, so use a light hand. IT does stay on all day, but is a little more towards the purple side than I would have liked.4
i love the way these blushes feel on the skin. they blend right in and add that perfect pop of color. i have a medium complexion and this looks absolutely amazing4
