Smashbox FAQ’s 7 Piece Color Collection Review, Swatches, Photos

Smashbox FAQs 7 Piece Color Collection 1

Let it be known I was every so relieved after viewing the QVC Presentation Video that I wasn’t crazy about the overall finish I got with the Smashbox FAQ’s 7 Piece Color Collection.

I recently hauled this on Auto Delivery from QVC because it was a stupendous deal. After receiving it I was in awe over the promo model’s overall look and was every so eager to try it out.

FAIL!

I totally couldn’t master the look but after seeing the video on QVC I realized the two looks are completely and utterly different and the one on QVC looks more like what I came out with than what was included in the how to guide in the set.

Phew! It’s always nice to know I’m NOT going crazy because believe me I feel on the brink of it daily.

Avon Anew Solar Advance Sunscreen Face Lotion Review

Avon Anew Solar Advance Sunscreen Face Lotion 4

The high SPF value alone was one reason I wanted to try it out and of course the rather affordable $24 price tag for 2.6 oz as higher end SPF comes with a far bigger price tag.

Here’s my thoughts!

the Balm Frat Boy Review, Swatches, Photos

the Balm Frat Boy 11

Gossip Girl Frat Boy the Balm

Frat Boy….

Defined as a hot college boy that plays football, and belongs to a fraternity.

Attractive?

Not to me. My taste is men runs to girly Asian boys, English men, freaky gothy guys, and geeks!

the Balm Frat Boy

I am however attracted to the Balm’s version of a Frat Boy though! Their Frat Boy is a flush of matte pinky peach blush sans beer, football, and preppy short sleeved shirts with the collars flicked up.

I think you’ll loves it whether you’re into Frat Boys or not!
