Review: theBalm Cabana Boy

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I recently haven’t been going into Beauty Bar because I felt like the items there haven’t been being updated very much. I was with my girlfriend when I decided to take a chance and check out the items. I went to theBalm Cosmetics counter and swatched a couple of their products. TheBalm is known to be a considerably high end brand that sells affordable cosmetics. Ever since I fell in love with their bronzer, Bahama Mama, I’ve been wanting to try out their blushers. They had 3 blush selection but I went for the most peculiar shade of the three: Cabana Boy. The other two are Down Boy (cool pink) and Frat Boy (warm pink)

 

Product

Cabana Boy is raspberry colored pink that has a super tiny hint of shimmer in it. It’s housed in a no-fuss magnetic cardboard packaging. It has a considerably large mirror as well which I think is very useful. The design is very cute and it goes according to the retro theme of all theBalm cosmetics.

What I Like

This shade is very gorgeous and it suits my skin tone very well. The product itself is very silky and easy to apply. It is also very pigmented and I would recommend the use of a very light hand for a perfect rosey glow on the cheeks. Also, I got it for 20% off its original price (STEAL!!!I got the only one they had. hehe) because of a product packaging error. The mirror and the blusher got switched places but I really don’t mind because as a beauty blogger, I like trying out new things. I don’t think the actual product was compromised despite the packaging error. It costs $21 in the US and the original price here in the Philippines is Php850. The exchange rate as of today is 44.6 making the Cabana Boy Blush cost around Php 936.6 if you buy it in the States. I feel so proud of this purchase.HAHAHA. I got it for php637.50 by the way. :)


What I don’t like

I have nothing to say here!! THIS PRODUCT IS SUCH A STEAL.

Swatches

Final Thoughts

I really like this blush! It’s something that I can wear everyday and I can see that it can wear well on both fair-skinned and tanned women. Plus, this is the first time that I’m going to say this. It’s actually cheaper to buy it here than in the States! Good job, Beauty Bar! :)

xoxo,
