TheBalm Down Boy Blush - Review

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.

Ingredients :
Mica CI 77019, Boron Nitride, Polyethylene, PTFE, Isoeicosane, Silica, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Polyisobutene, Dimethicone, Titanium Dioxide CI 77891, Bismuth Oxychloride CI 77163, Carmine CI 75470, Iron Oxides CI 77492.

Size: 0.35 oz

*Swatches on my hand
TheBalm Down Boy is a soft medium pink color. This is have neutral tone, look good on both warm and cool tones. It would be the perfect shade for many different skintones. It give matte finish. Compare with NARS Desire, the color is lighter and softer pink. Similar with NARS Angelika, but without shimmer.

Pros :
  • Give natural flush color on the cheek.
  • Matte finish ~ safe for oily skin.
  • blend easily.
  • Highly pigmented.
  • Great staying power.
Cons :
  • Packaging looks cheap.

*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*
