the Balm Shadow and Blush in Hot Mama: Review, Photos & Swatches

♥ the Balm Shadow and Blush in Hot Mama. 

An all-in-one essential, this smart shadow, beautiful blush and subtle highlighter is tucked inside a go-anywhere compact. This pinky-peach hue adds a splash of color to your cheeks and a hint of shimmer to your lids, while illuminating your finest features.

My Thoughts:
the Balm's Shadow and Blush in Hot Mama ($20.00 for 0.25oz/7.08g.) is a pretty pinky peach blush with golden shimmer. It's very easy to apply, feels soft on the cheeks and it blends beautifully into the skin. It gives my cheeks a very natural flush of color, which I think is super pretty for summer. It also gives me a pretty and healthy looking glow, so I don't feel the need to use a highlighter with it.

It's a very pigmented blush, so a little goes a long way. You can sheer it out and make it look very natural on your cheeks, or you can build it up and make it look brighter if you want to. I have always been a big fan of multipurpose products, and Hot Mama is a great one. You can use it as a blush/highlighter or even as an eyeshadow if you want to.

I'm always drawn towards the Balm's products, because of their adorable packaging. Hot Mama come in a small, thick cardboard compact with a mirror inside and a magnetic closure. The size is perfect, so it's great for keeping in your daily makeup bag or in your handbag for touch ups :-)
