Blush -TheBalm -Blush - Hot Mama

on 8/11/2018 8:03:00 PM


This looks very natural on me i am nc20 nw20 neutral asian light skin. The shimmers in here arent obnoxious as it looks in the pan. This is a healthy flush coral that isnt clown like. Its a great summer spring time color. It looks better than nars orgasm and deep thoart. It blends beautifully, better than nars for sure. I love this for a natural put together cute flushed cheeks in the sun look. I just wish the packaging was better and not paper lol i have the mini and when i run out i think i am going to get the full size. I only have 3 blushes in my collection because i am very picky when it comes to blushers. And this is def my top 3 other than my mac warm soul and nars exhibit a. I do not like pinky blushers soooo hot mama is as pink as id go even though its more coral. i consider this as my fav pink tone blush. Exhibit a is that natural winter flushed from cold look and warm soul is my hg everyday peach blush. I love all three of these puppies.

Tinted Moisturizer -TheBalm -BalmShelter Tinted Moisturizer SPF 18


I love how it look on my skin, it doesn't cakey, and the colour fair/medium also suits me, BUT! it caused lot of pimples, and usually I don't have any. When I stopped using it, the pimples gone, so I won't use it again.

Palettes -TheBalm -Meet Matt(e) Trimony


l love love love the color selection of this palette but I don't enjoy how dry the eyeshadows are. The benefits of the dry formula are that there's zero fall out and it's great for those who are heavy handed or want to slowly build up their eyelook BUT on the negative side they are not very pigmented and it takes time to create the desired intensity. I would prefer a creamier and more pigmented formula. I ordered mine on lookfantastic so I don't know if I got a bad one but I've been using this palette for the past year and the eyeshadows remain hard and chalky.

Blush -TheBalm -Instain Blush in Swiss Dot

on 7/31/2018 5:27:00 AM


Love this product. It has become part of my routine. The color is perfect on my tanned to deep skin and looks amazing in the summer over light coverage foundation and no contouring and such. It is definitely long lasting and stays pretty all day. However, with oily skin, I have to blot a couple of times a day but this does not affect the blush. Either way, it definitely is one of my all time favorites.

Concealers -TheBalm -TimeBalm Concealer

on 7/29/2018 7:55:00 PM


I just snagged this on clearance. $7.80, a bargain I couldn't pass up. I got it in the shade Lighter Than Light. Cons: It does contain talc. They need a lighter shade. This works for me because it's summer, but it may be a tad too dark by January. We'll see.
Pros: Excellent coverage, as much as IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye, also Time Balm doesn't crack or crease either. It's super concentrated & the small pot will last a long time.
