Just a few of weeks ago, I went to visit New York City just for a day to spend some “Me time”. I was actually planning on heading to the Inglot store but it was a bit too far from where I was ,so I guess that’s going to be my next assignment. 🙂
Anyway, I couldn’t resist but to check out Duane Reade (the most recognized drugstore chain in metropolitan New York). Duane Reade became a part of Walgreens family and they carry a lot of great drugstore beauty products that Walgreens Pharmacy itself do not sell.
They have a beauty section (LOOK boutique) that sells a lot of amazing drugstore brands that we do not have here in Albany, NY. Few of the brands they carry are the ones that I’ve laid my hands to.
I have been wanting to check out theBalm’s Hot Mama! since forever. So without a second thought I had to grab one.
DESCRIPTIONAn all-in-one essential, this smart shadow, beautiful blush and subtle highlighter is tucked inside a go-anywhere compact. This pinky-peach hue adds a splash of color to your cheeks and a hint of shimmer to your lids, while illuminating your finest features.
This is the very first item that I looked for as soon as I reached their beauty section. The packaging as we all know is very different, it comes with a decent sized mirror and it’s super lightweight. If you have this theBalm’s Hot Mama! Shadow/Blush in your collection, you will for sure agree that this is amazingly pigmented. The shade reminds me of NARS Orgasm blush. It does have a hint of shimmer but very subtle, really gorgeous shade that goes with any skin tone. The color is a perfect peach/pink with just a good amount of shimmer. I love how multi-purpose this product is, where you can use this as an eyeshadow and blush at the same time, I paid $20.00 for this beauty and it’s really worth it!
DESCRIPTIONMeet Mary-Lou Manizer, a seemingly innocent honey-hued luminizer that catches everybody’s eye. This highlighter, shadow and shimmer diffuses light so your skin looks softer and younger while adding a subtle glow.
