theBalm® cosmetics cabanaBOY shadow/blush

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.

Color seen online is not true

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.

Good pigmentation in color, but doesn't blend naturally
Purchased

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.

Very pigmented

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.

Not exactly what I was expecting
Purchased

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.

Apply gently!

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!

Visible, hard to blend

This product had great difficulty blending with an assortment of my other makeup supplies, though alone it was visible and a great colour.

Cheeky!
Purchased

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!

Stays on
Purchased

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.
