the Balm Frat Boy Review


 


Ok can I just say I'm loving the packaging of the Balm's Frat Boy?  the Balm has always been one of my favorite make up brands, maybe for their clever packaging and cute slogans.  Frat Boy features a football player with his girlfriend, looking like he just won the high school football game. Just a guess of course!

So what exactly is Frat Boy? It's a gorgeous pink powder that works as both an eyeshadow and a blush.  This velvety smooth, peachy-apricot shadow/blush adds the perfect amount of color for a foxy flush so you look stellar around the clock. Frat Boy™ leaves you with a face that's pretty and polished. When you can't keep the boys away, blame it on the blush.


I've never been much of a "frat boy" fan I was never really into the jockey type but hey this might be opening my eyes a bit! The color in this palette is absolutely gorgeous, especially if you're a fan of pretty pinks. Comes with a nice mirror in a little cardboard box, this packaging is simply adorable. I'm so happy I can now add it to my collection. Almost too pretty to use! I'm always a sucker for cute packaging, and the balm sucks me in every time. I really don't think any company does cute makeup slogans like the Balm does.




The color in the palette reminds me a bit of Benefit's Bamba Blush . It's a peach with a gorgeous matte pink.  It has a hint of sparkle, but not too much to where it's overwhelming.  This is a simple easy blush that can work with any skin tone. I am so loving the peachy color. If you don't like shimmer in your blush, this might not be for you.  But thankfully for me, I'm a shimmer a holic! I love this color for both Winter and Summer.

I always have a hard time finding a must have blush, but this one I really enjoyed. the Balm Frat Boy is available at thebalm.com and Sephora
