I got this little sample of the Balm's HOT MAMA! in my December Birchbox and, to my now self-loathing, wrote it off pretty quickly as something that "I just [wasn't] sure [if] it'[d] work out on my skin coloring" (ahhh, don't you just love quoting yourself/your own idiocy?).
I was an absolute idiot for putting off this blush for so long.
This blush is everything. EVERYTHING.
Take the jump below to see why!!
HOT MAMA! is your classic peach blush with a golden sheen. It's buttery soft, finely milled, and basically just perfect in every way shape and form; cute packaging, dreamy formula, and color payoff that you wouldn't believe until you try it out for yourself.
This blush gives your cheeks that absolute perfect hint of peachy color while also acting as a highlighter when your cheekbones hit the light just right. It's not over-powering, it's subtle, and basically makes you look like you were born with cheeks that tempt strangers to pinch/kiss them.
Look'it that. JUST LOOK AT THAT.
Feel free to virtually pinch my cheeks through the interweb all you want.
I think I have to give this blush a status of 'Holy Grail'; this is big news people!! I'm always switching things up and only have a couple of products that I swear by so to call this a HG blush should mean a lot...
well, at least it does to me.
Have you tried the Balm's HOT MAMA! blush?
Love it? Hate it (I'm weeping at the thought...)?
What's your favorite (or even HG status) blush?
