FBR Review and Lipgloss Giveaway!


I love makeup and love trying out new colors and shades, I'm not one of those girls that wear my makeup naturally.  I love big, bold and bright colors!  But every once in a while I will tone it down with a pretty pink or mauve depending on what I'm wearing.  I've had plenty of makeup advice in the past but in the end I always end up resorting back to my prior makeup trends.  One big plus for me is glitter or shimmer.  If the makeup has any glitter or shimmer in it, I'll probably be getting it.  I guess it's the Latina in me!  So when Trinette, (Isn't her name just fabulous?) from FBR cosmetics sent me over a lipgloss, lipstick and eyeshadow to try and review and I saw the colors she sent me I immediately went inside to find any excuse to try them out!

First thing's first, Who's FBR Cosmetics?
According to their website, "Ms. Rozz J, the CEO of FBR Cosmetics joined a network of professionals to formulate special blends of product that will protect your lips from drying as well as provide the lips with long-lasting natural gorgeously glossy finish.  FBR Lip Gloss will complete your look while providing you with the finishing touch.  The FBR Cosmetic product line will capture the modern spirit and promote natural looking beauty, women will love it.  FBR Cosmetics is committed to build a strong brand of quality products, starting with Shimmer Shine and the Faith Lip Gloss Line."
FBR Cosmetics was started by a makeup artist to the stars, Ms. Rozz J, and if anyone knows makeup she does!  They feature only the highest quality cosmetics including their stunning lipstick shades, beautiful lip glosses and incredible eyeshadows.  They also carry lip pencils, palettes, brushes and even FBR apparel!  Below are some examples of FBR Cosmetics I plan on trying in the near future!
Artist Eyeshadow Palette $30.50
Lip Gloss $10.50
7 piece Brush Set $40.50
My Review
Trinette sent me a Lip Gloss in joist, a Lipstick in naked pink and an Eyeshadow in divine.  I don't know how she did it but she picked out the perfect colors to match my skin color!  I instantly fell in love with all three colors and immediately went into the bathroom to try them out.  As I mentioned earlier, I love to wear all colors of the rainbow, blues, purples, greens but, depending on what I'm wearing, I will also tone it down and wear a nice pink or mauve color.  With my skin and eye color I tend to stay away from browns, tans, yellows and colors like those because a very smart women once taught me to stay away from those colors because they make me look sickly.  And they really do!  I can pull off very few golds and browns depending on the shade but purples and pinks are really my colors.   Here is a picture of the makeup itself, you can't really see the sparkles in the eyeshadow but let me tell you it's stunning!  This makeup is great because you can wear it natural by applying it lightly or you can apply a little more of it for elegantly sexy look you can wear anytime, anywhere!  The lipstick and lipgloss go on very smooth and aren't sticky.  I love that they don't leave a nasty filmy residue like some others I've tried in the past.  The eyeshadow is light and isn't cakey, which is a huge plus.  It also doesn't build up in the creases of my eyelids like others I've tried.  Overall I'm extremely pleased with FBR Cosmetics and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for high quality cosmetics.
Pros: Where do I start?  FBR Cosmetics has incredible cosmetics, their eyeshadows are lightweight and don't buildup in the creases of my eyelids.  The lipgloss and lipsticks aren't sticky and don't leave a nasty, filmy residue.  The lipstick moisturizes my lips and I've actually noticed quite a difference in the past week, my lips are much softer!
Cons: The makeup is a little pricey but you have to expect to pay for high quality.  I'd also like to see more of a selection but of course there's more to come in the future for this exciting new company!
