I've been on the look-out for a darker sort of plum pink blush that would look nice during the autumn and winter (without being too dark for my light complexion). I feel like when people talk about thebalm's blushes all you ever hear about is Hot Mama, and possibly Frat Boy and Down Boy. Which I guess is understandable, if they're as good as Cabana Boy, but I still feel like this shade is definitely underrated/not raved about enough. It's a gorgeous satin-like powder formula that is just the right amount of pigmented. It's pigmented enough for the device "a little goes a long way", but not pigmented to the point where you need to be extremely careful or risk ending up with 10 times too much product if you sweep your brush in it a bit too enthusiastically. It also blends wonderfully and doesn't look powder-y at all when applied. It gives a certain amount of shine, but it's in no way a highligher/blush hybrid - it just gives a healthy and fresh sort of complexion. The staying power is good - really good actually. Now I've not (yet..) tried the fancy stuff like Nars or whatever, so I don't know how well it holds up compared to those kind of brands. But it's significantly better (and feels more luxurious) than any drugstore brand I've tried. The packaging, just like most of thebalm's products, is well thought out and has a charming retro vibe to it. Before I got it I was slightly hesitant about how safe I'd feel throwing this into a makeup bag or a purse because it "locks" only with a magnet. Turns out the packaging is definitely sturdy enough and the magnet strong enough for it to feel okay to bring on-the-go. It's actually quite handy for that, since it's a significantly thinner packaging than any other blush I own. Overall I'm a little bit in love with this product. It shouldn't be a surprise since I've loved the Mary Lou-Manaziner from the first time I laid eyes on it, but since I hadn't heard as much about this product I was slightly unprepared for how hard I'd fall for it.

I can't believe I waited so long to try this blush. It's a gorgeous berry color with a nice sheen. Not frosty or glittery. It's a perfect fall / winter color for my light cool skin. Most fall color blushes are too dark or too brown for my complexion but cabana boy still has a pink tone to it that works well with my coloring. It's very pigmented so a tiny dab on my brush goes a long way. It's a bit pricey but you get a lot of product and need to use so little, it will last a looooong time. Staying power is great. At the end of the day it's faded but still there. The packaging is flat and sleek and doesn't take up too much room. Highly recommend this blush!

I love Cabana Boy. It's a nice mauve color. It lasts for about 6-7 hours. There's a lot of product in the packaging. I love their packaging. I love it for fall & winter.

I never thought I could wear a "plum-toned" blush, but this is absolutely gorgeous. Unlike most plum-toned blushes, this is very warm, and the gold undertones give this an "outdoorsy flush" kick. A little goes a long way. Puts other blushes to shame!

This is a beautiful plum/berry type of blush with shimmer and it looks amazing on the skin. I was initially wary of the amount of shimmer in this product but it doesn't appear overly shimmery or glittery looking when applied. It gives a radiant, healthy type of look to the face and I'm quite impressed with the staying power. I've noticed with some more shimmery blushes that once they fade, they have a tendency to leave more shimmer than colour behind but this is not the case for this product.The pigmentation on this product is no joke (as with almost all of TheBalm products) so use sparingly. Also, the packaging on TheBalm products are very quirky and different from any other brands I've tried. I have to give props to how sleek and compact the product is even with the little mirror inside (ahem I'm looking at you Physicians Formula), and the fact that it contains quite a bit more product than your traditional powder blush (8.5 grams) is awesome. It is a bit hard to get ahold of TheBalm products in Canada but they do sell them online or at Rexall.

LOVE this blush.First - the 4/5 rating: $21.00 is pricey. What justified the price to me was the amount you get - 0.3 oz. is a lot of product (compared to, say, Nars blush, which is $30.00 for .16 oz.. I know.).The product itself is fantastic - it may be more pigmented than any blush I've used before. The texture is lovely, and I can see this color working for just about any skin tone.Warning: I'm about as fair as they come, and when I used it for the first time, I didn't quite get exactly HOW pigmented it is. I put on way too much. I'm using it sparingly now (I dip the corner of my blush brush into the product, then tap off the excess), so I think it's going to last for a very long time. Now I'm curious to know how well Frat Boy and Down Boy stand up against Cabana Boy. I've been using Cabana Boy since June, and I couldn't recommend it more!

This is a beautiful product.Nice shimmery, pinky red colour. I've tried it on myself [I have fair skin] and a few of my friends [who are a lot darker than me] have used it as well and the colours goes well with many skin tones. It stays on all day so you don't need to touch up, unless you rub your face throughout the day, then that's a different story.

This is a great matte berry toned blush that I love to wear in the cooler months, it wears well and is really pigmented. I originally thought it looked too dark in the pan for my skin (NW20 in mac) but it's really not when you apply with a light hand

What a fantastic blush for amping up your look!!!! Very beautiful pinkish/red and very pigmented. A little goes a long way, which leads me to believe that I will have this blush for a very long time. I think that this is for a more dramatic (less everyday) look; however, with a very light hand, you could wear this as your daily blush. TheBalm and Benefit always have super cute packaging which I like; however, I did not give 5 lippies for that because I feel like it is super unprotected.I think that in your home makeup collection (if organized) this could hold up fine. Traveling and/or an unorganized array of blushes, I could see this getting hurt. Overall, love the blush and the color payoff it provides....
