The seasons are changing and with that comes a whole new world of possibilities with our makeup routine. My own routine definitely takes on more color as it gets hotter outside. I tend to go for more neutral colors in the winter with the exception of red lips… I mean really who does not love a great red lip in the winter.
I recently bought The Balm’s Hot Mama blush as I had not tried it and had heard some good things about it. My usual go to blush is Nars orgasm. It compliments my fair skin nicely. I have been using Hot Mama now for a couple of weeks and feel it is time to be able to fairly and accurately review the product.
In a couple of words IT ROCKS!!!! It is not to different from Nars orgasm actually. Hot mama is has a tad more peach to it with shimmer. Hot Mama gives my cheeks a glow that no other blush including Nars orgasm has been able to do. It is very pigmented and I can easily over do it but a slight blending with my trusty Nars Botan Brush quickly and effortlessly solves that issue. If you have never tried this brush you are missing out big time! It is costly but will blend like no other brush you own. It looks like this.
This brush will cost you $75.00. I know that is a lot of money for some people to spend on 1 brush but I promise you will not be disappointed. I call it a Kabuki on steroids as the head of this brush is massive. If you are interested in buying it you can get it here..
O.K. back to The Balm’s Hot Mama. This is a beautiful peachy coral blush. It comes housed in a square stiff cardboard case. The magnetic closure is very strong and it does seem secure. I have no worries about traveling with this blush. This is what the pan looks like…
And a swatch…
I really can not say enough good things about this blush. It is all around amazing. I find it superior to Nars orgasm although Nars orgasm is still one of my favorites. If you are interested in buying this blush(and you should) you can pick it here for $20.00 …http://www.thebalm.com/hot-mama.html
This blush is actually an all in one product. Meaning it can be used on the eyes and cheeks. I have yet to try it as a shadow as it just works so well for my cheeks. I will be trying that soon though. I give this blush a 5 out of 5 and say it is a must own. For me this is the perfect summer time blush.
