I like the shade-it's gorgeous plummy blush that hard to search the dupes for. I have to apply it lightly, because it's pigmented and you can look bruised if you applied it too much. The shade looks nice on my cheeks, but I like Frat Boy & Down Boy better. I absolutely love the retro packaging, it's so cute!
Holy grail blush for me. Colour is beautiful and extremely pigmented - I've had it for months and barely made a dent in it. I find that this stays on all day without fading or going blotchy, even when my skin is super oily. As always The Balm packaging is the cutest!
love the packaging for the balm!!!! this blush is awesome and is also a eyeshadow so if you don't like as blush u have another use for it.. I love it its lightenough for me to blush without looking like a clown. it stays all day on my oily skin..
I really like this blush, it has a gorgeous color that goes great with my skin tone and the texture is very soft.
Love this blush! the color and the texture are amazing. It is such a versatile berry shade that isn't too cool or warm. With a light hand it looks great on pale skin and it can be used on darker skin. It lasts for a long time on my skin ( I have oily skin). I use a real techniques blush brush to apply it. I can apply it heavily for night or light for day. I do find that it clings if I apply it over foundation before a setting powder. It is a more sophisticated color and I don't like it for very casual days. I think it blends great with contour powder and with highlighter. It doesn't have a smell and the packaging it cute ( it does get dirty).
Gorgeous plummy blush that I use on occasion but not something I can't do without.
Good pigment, although be light handed. It can go from lovely to too much by surprise. I love this when I want a change from TheBalm Hot Mama. I love the packaging too, great pin-up chicks. Not the colour for a fair/blondes.
I was so excited to find this blush! Over 2 years ago I first tried The Balms "Hot Mama" blush and was blown away by it's quality and the overall look of it when it's on. Earlier this month I was in London Drugs and came across the Cabana Boy blush for about $24 and without any hesitation I knew I had to purchase it and try it out! Cabana Boy's color is a dusty rose with little flex of glimmer,it's perfect for my pale complexion,and would probably be suitable for any skin tone. It can be used for blush on the cheek bones or eye shadow! I have very sensitive skin and easily break out from new products but i have never had that problem with any of the balms products.Another plus side to The Balms blushes are they last a very long time, they are for sure worth the price you pay!
I have several TheBalm products and love this line. I disagree that this is too dark, I am very fair and this is a pretty rosy blush that is deeply pigmented. I do think it is buildable. I have a few other blushes that I reach for more, but this is fast becoming a favorite too.
i like this brush a lot. i would disagree with many reviewers - it's not too heavy. if you swipe your brush only once and start applying it carefully, you will get the right bit of color! of course, you need a good large round brush for that - i use becca kabuki.
the color is dark pink. i don't notice any yellow/orange pink in it and i actually like it. i'm pale so pink looks much more natural than peach. there is some shimmer, but it's very subtle so it's not very noticeable.
the packaging is nice. i don't carry it around so i don't worry much about the magnet closing. however, if you do, i must the "lock" is pretty strong. also, it comes with a cardboard case and it will help keep the brush securely closed.
all in all, highly recommended!
