theBalm Down Boy

I'm in a ridiculously good mood today. It's going to be 71 and sunny today. Spring, AT LAST! I even started getting back into some of my Spring makeup. Remember Lazy Day from "To The Beach"? Yep, I'm wearin' it! In fact, I'm wearing it with my new blush, Down Boy from theBalm.

It's the most perfect pink, no?

theBalm Down Boy, $21 USD
I love the packaging: very cute, very glam, very fun. First impression? I loved the color. Just kind of pinky-pink I like. As far as blushes go, I'm not picky about the finish. Matte, frost, shimmer, whatever. I take 'em all, but this little beauty has a matte finish. The only thing I thought might be troublesome, was that it got pretty powdery when I was swatching it with my finger. It left me wondering if this was going to make a mess on my face.

....but it didn't. Although very pigmented, this blush blended onto my cheeks effortlessly. I was left with a nice pink flush without looking too pink, you know what I mean? It didn't look overdone at all. I'm a huge fan and I highly recommend.

Me too. I have to say, I like this way better than NARS Angelika. It's such a flattering color.

Hmm I'm not sure I own a matte blush... To be honest, I don't really pay attention to finishes when it comes to blushes LOL!
