theBalm has gone and done it again and this time with the Frat Boy blush! I sincerely hope this is the last of the "Boy" series because the names are getting quite absurd. Frat Boy was only made available locally slightly more than a month ago and it completes the Boy blush line-up, for now at least.
It is described as a peachy-apricot but I think it has more pink than apricot on skin. It is such a pretty shade! I actually received a few compliments the first time I wore the blush and even le hubby noticed, which is quite a big deal since he is not very observant about such matters.

The blush is quite matte and does not contain shimmer but it does have a slight satiny finish, which is great for those who don't like to have sparkly cheeks. I believe it will suit most skin tones well.

Frat Boy is a peachy-pink shade on me and I'd like to think that it gives me that peaches and cream complexion. I'm probably a little deluded though! As mentioned before, it is very pigmented and you only need a little at a time.
theBalm Frat Boy Shadow / Blush is yet another hit for me! The blush is well pigmented, silky and has all the qualities of a good blush that I can't really think of any cons except for the silly name. It retails at RM65 each but I got mine during a promotional period and paid RM50 for it.
