TheBalm FratBoy Blush : Review and FOTD

 

thebalm frat boy blush

 Give him a rush he won’t forget when he sees you in this velvety smooth, peachy-apricot shadow/blush.

Talc and paraben-free, theBalm FratBoy’s fine-graded powder formula adds the perfect amount of colour for a foxy flush so you look stellar around the clock.

Whether you’re mixing it up or cutting a rug, you’re left with a face that’s pretty, polished and totally pledge-worthy.

When you can’t keep the boys away, blame it on the blush.

Size – 8.5 gms , Price – $ 21 + TAX

If am not mistaken , I picked this for $ 12 , yeahh on 50 % off during some sale and gosh am so proud of myself and look forward to pick more blushes on sale , the in stain ones am talking about .

Frat boy is described as “Peachy Apricot” it is medium to dark bright coral pink shade with super fine golden sheen which just lifts the bush and doesn’t make it look too flat or blaah.

The powder is finally milled and is super pigmented; it doesn’t need much layering and is not at all chalky or ashy. The blush is very flattering and will show wonderfully on medium to dark skin tone. I get 7 – 8 hrs of wear and then it fades evenly. I love their blushes for the quantity plus the quality they give; it is beyond excellent for the price you pay.

As all the balm blushes, it is also housed in sleek cardboard packaging with magnetic closer and vintage looking pictures plus a decent size mirror. I had never faced any issues with their packaging; it may look delicate but never gone bad even in travelling.

On Scale of 1 – 10 , I would give this 9 : Although I have no complaints but still it could have been little better and sturdy , apart from that , texture , colour , pigmentation and staying power is bang on perfect from price point .

    Thankyou! Thankyou! Thankyou for making me buy this! It is gorgeous indeed – so soft and so pigmented!! And very flattering – goes with my horde of corals so well!! But i have to be careful with applying it – my blushes still go on too dark. I have to learn the art of “subtle”!!!

    And is this the same lippy we spoke about yst? Awesome!!! :)
