Many people rave about theBalm blushes. I choose Down Boy for my first theBalm blush. My friend told me that the color is great. Yeah, I own so many pinky blushes, but I want it so much.
Like other theBalm packaging, it made of thick cardboard with unique cover picture. The packaging doesn't look like expensive stuff. Not come with applicator, just mirror.
TheBalm Down Boy adds just the right amount of pink to cheeks. The formula is paraben free and made of fine-graded powder, which helps to provide an even and smooth texture to the skin. The light-reflecting particles give off an aura of elegance that's sure to get you noticed.

*Where I got mine
I don't want spent lot money, so I bought my friend's Down Boy ^__^ she sells only IDR 190.000 ~CHEAP~ But it available at Sephora, Beauty, Zalora around $21 or IDR 250.000. I'm not complain about the price, I guess it's reasonable price for high quality.
After having Down Boy, I would buy the other blush color. My next is Frat Boy, but I'll wait until there are SALE, hmm.. Halloween or Black Friday SALE *please, hurry up*
