The Balm FratBoy Review and Swatches

Many of you may have participated in the Balm 50% site wide sale for their relaunching. I did!! One of the things that I got was the FratBoy blush. I have been wanting this for a long time, and to get it for around $11 was amazing!

There are a few reasons I wanted it. The first was that I have never tried any Balm products before, can you believe that? Everyone always raves about their shadows and blushes, and I figured it was about time I got on the bandwagon. The second reason I chose this one out of their other amazing blush offerings was the name. FratBoy? Yes. I was in a sorority in college, so of course, this just seems fitting that I have it.

I was really impressed with the Balm's service and shipping. I know their site crashed for a few days, but once it was back up, ordering was easy, this was shipped to me very quickly and wrapped really securely. I love the packaging as well! Even though it is cardboard it is sturdy. It comes with a sleeve with the same front picture (to save) and the inside has a mirror surrounded by a football field and says "So many men, so little time".
As much as I feel that the sentiment didn't apply to me, this is still an amazing blush.
The pigmentation on this blush is fantastic. When I apply, I barely have to touch the blush to get enough for both of my cheeks. This will last me much longer than most relationships with frat boys, I am sure.
The color is a medium pink and it gives the perfect girlish flush. Perfect for sorority socials and grocery store runs alike.
This is literally the perfect blush for my skin tone and I have been wearing it daily. So even if you have never been in a sorority, I promise this blush will thrill you longer than your "Rush Crush".
Have you tried this? Love the Balm? Let's here!
