theBalm Blush in Fratboy Review, Swatches and FOTD

Hey Everyone!

theBalm Frat Boy Blush

We all have a phase in our makeup journey where we are attracted towards a certain brand or certain products like eyeshadow's, lipsticks or foundations and tend to buy them a lot. For me I am currently going through a blush phase and even though I have so many blushes in my collection I tend to buy more!

Meet the culprit which was responsible for my craze towards blushes...theBalm's Blush in Fratboy!!! I got this blush at the start of this year and since then it has been my to go blush and I just cannot get enough of it! 

The first thing that you notice about all theBalm products is their attractive and retro packaging! I absolutely adore it! Its different than the usual black case packaging which we normally see in higher end brands with exception of Benefit.

theBalm Blush in Fratboy comes in a square cardboard packaging with a tiny mirror inside. Although I would have preferred a full size mirror but something better than nothing..right? Another advantage of cardboard packaging is that its less prone to breakage and scratches! I have traveled with this blush in my handbag across countries and yet to face any problems!

The blush retails for 21$ for whopping 8.5g which is higher than most of the higher end blushes in the market!

The Balm Frat boy blush

Fratboy is a gorgeous peachy pink shade with a matte finish. The texture of the blush is satiny smooth with no fall outs at all. It is highly pigmented and I swipe of brush is enough to get natural flush on cheeks. The blush is incredible soft and looks very natural. On my combination skin it stays for 8+ hours which is truly amazing! It blends beautifully on the skin without turning patchy or even. The shade is universally flattering and a must have if you love blushes!
