REVIEW - TheBalm - Hot Mama! Blush

Hullo Ladies!

I'm reviewing a blush today that I won in a giveaway earlier in the year. 

I'd been wanting to purchase Hot Mama! by TheBalm for awhile, as I'd read many reviews on it as it's considered a great dupe for the famous Nars Orgasm Blush.

It's a pinky peach with gold shimmer running throughout it that highlights the cheek bone and looks stunning when it catches the light.

It can be used as both a blusher and a eyeshadow. 

You get 7.08g of products and a good size mirror and a hidden magnet to keep it closed.

When I recieved this product, I suddenly noticed how many blushes out there that are very similar to this, maybe due to Nars Orgasm being so popular companies caught on that this type of shade is universally favoured. 

As I do not own Orgasm I don't know how similar it actually is to Hot Mama Sadly. If you look on google though I'm sure some lovely blogger out there has done a comparison on the both of them :-) 

Two particular dupes I heard about were Rose Gold and Guipure from Sleek. I own Guipure and though it's a similar type of blush its more pink toned than Hot Mama! 

You can read my review of Guipure here.

This gorgeous blush is easily blended into the skin and has amazing lasting power. 

I love how it looks on the cheeks and use it as both a blush and highlighter. 

It gives a gorgeous glow to the skin that looks amazing in the Summer. 

I absolutely love this product, it's great quality and well worth the money. 

You can be gentle when applying to give yourself just a slight flush of colour or you can build it up, it's up to you!

It's universally flattering and sometimes I like to apply it other a brighter matte blush if I'm being brave :-) 

You can buy this here on Amazon! 

Have you tried this blush? Do you love it as much as me?!
