In today’s blog post, I will be writing about my review on theBalm’s Cabana Boy shadow/blush.
I will also be featuring what the product looks like and a swatch of it as well.
As you will have read in last week’s post, you’ll know that I purchased theBalm’s Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter from the Feel Unique website. As well as that, I also purchased their Cabana Boy shadow/blush. I had been using my Soap & Glory Peach Party blush for a little while and fancied a change. It retails at £13.95 on Feel Unique’s website and £15.50 on the high street.
Just like I mentioned last week, theBalm’s packaging is so fun and quirky – I love it! This is what the front of it looks like – a beach scene with a male and female sharing a kiss.
Now, I was a bit sceptical at first about the colour as I thought it looked a bit dark. After using it for the first time, I realized that the product is buildable, so you can create a dark cheek look if you keep adding and adding. However, I like to swish my brush in it ever so slightly and sweep it on to my cheeks to give them a subtle look. I haven’t used it as an eyeshadow yet but I think I might just do that!
This is a swatch of the shadow/blush. As you can see, it is quite pigmented and would definitely be ideal as an eyeshadow, perhaps using it in the crease. I like the way my cheeks look after applying this and I’ll probably just keep my Soap & Glory blush as a back up now instead of my go to one.
Do any of you use this product of would like to? Let me know by leaving a comment!
