theBalm DownBoy Blush/Eyeshadow

My fair complected friend Janna passed over to me this soft, light pink blush.


I always found theBalm packaging designs and themes to be somewhat…. off-color in a way. As if to say that all women only care about men and being pursued by men.

Well, that’s my complaint for today! Let’s look at the product.


When I first saw the color, I thought it could possibly be a little more plum than true pink.

The swatch proves me wrong. It’s quite blue-toned.


You can clearly see how cool toned it is against my warm golden toned complexion.

If you have a light complexion, check this out. It applies very nicely and smoothly. I can’t wear it, but I’ll be holding onto it for my pro kit.

At theBalm’s website, this is $21.
