theBalm Hot Mama! Blush Review+Swatches

 theBalm's Hot Mama is an "all in one essential. This smart shadow beautiful blush, and subtle highlighter is tucked in 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." This multi use blusher contains 7 grams (.25 oz) and sells for $20. I picked mine up off of HauteLook for just $11. theBalm is cruelty free. This product was made in the USA.

 theBalm is known for their cheeky, cute, retro packaging. Hot Mama comes in a cardboard compact with a strong magentic closure. The front of the compact features a sexy lady on a beach, holding a maraca. Inside is a rectangular pan of blush and a small but good quality mirror. The back of the packaging offers a full ingredient list. Hot Mama's cardboard compact is recyclable.
 I'm a long time fan of theBalm's eyeshadows, and I've read countless amazing review for their blushes. I don't know how it took me so long to try one! I really regret waiting, because this blush really is as incredible as everyone says it is! Hot Mama doesn't feel special in the pan, in fact it feels a little dry. This blush kicks up some excess powder, but is otherwise wonderful; it blends onto the skin so effortlessly and evenly. Hot Mama pack the perfect amount of pigment, it has excellent color payoff without being too powder. I use Hot Mama as a combination blush/highlight, and it so flattering that way! On the cheeks, this product lasts about seven hours. I've only worn Hot Mama on the eyes once, as an accent, so I can't comment on how long it wears.
 Hot Mama is beautiful! A gorgeous, perfect balance of peach and pink, with a warm, glowy golden sheen. This is the kind of color that suits everyone from the fairest of the fair, to quite deep skin, though it'll be more of a highlighter on richer skin tones. Hot Mama is similar to the famous NARS Orgasm, though its lighter and less pink.
I'm a big fan of theBalm and Hot Mama has only made me love the brand more. Packaging is cute and sturdy. The product it's self is fantastic! Pigmented, blendable, and multi functional. This gilded peachy pink is so gorgeous. I can't say enough good thing about theBalm' Hot Mama Blush! I definitely recommend Hot Mama, it belongs in everyone's collection.
