What is it?
It’s a cool toned baby pink powder that can be used as a blush or an eyeshadow.
The Balm Downboy Shadow/Blush retails at £15.49 and is available to purchase on the Find Me A Gift website.
There’s no denying the packaging is adorable. It’s also quite sturdy and includes a nice sized mirror.

My thoughts
This is a stunning cool toned light pink that gives the skin a very slight glow which looks just beautiful. It’s perfect for my pale complexion however, I think this would make a great highlight for someone with a deeper skin tone. It’s pigmentation is top notch so light application is required unless you like a really bold cheek. It blends very well and doesn’t leave that dusty powdery mess like a lot of blushes do. As for the wear time, it lasted around 10 hours before any form of fading occurred which is pretty good. I’m personally not a fan of Downboy on my eyes but if you’re a big lover of pink eyeshadow, this may tickle your fancy.
