theBalm- Hot Mama!

I've been reaching for a new blusher and with spring officially here I'm embracing blusher. theBalm is a brand which I'm sure you've all heard of before, if not then were have you been? Their packaging is very similar to a high end brand with their fancy cardboard packaging and their retro imaging is very classy and chic. I actually really like this style of branding, it makes the products refreshing and exciting.



I've been using Hot Mama lots and lots and love the gorgeous glow it gives me. This particular blusher and shade has been compared to the likes of Nars Orgasm and Super Orgasm. Sadly I don't own the Nars version but am very happy with theBalm version. I love the mirror which comes with the blush, mirrors are always handy! The texture of the blush is very smooth and velvety, the pigmentation is good and for fairer skin tones I would say air on the side of caution and not get to slap happy when applying!



The swatch above does not do this blush justice, I couldn't get the light right enough to show up the beautiful gold tones. This is a blush I can see me using lots this year, so if you fancy treating yourself to a new blush I would recommend you give this one a try! This blush is worth every penny and for £12.99 I think this is a steal and would give a Mac blush a run for its money! I really want to try Down Boy and Cabana Boy now to see if they are just as pretty!

  1. I love these Orgasm-esque shades. It looks a lot more peachy and more golden than Orgasm, which is sometimes straight up pink-with-a-gold-sheen on me. It looks so lovely and perfect for Summer. :)
