About F.O.G. Cosmetics

F.O.G.  Cosmetics is a new line of color cosmetics for all skin types and colors.  In this day and age where the concept of image and appearance is everything, our philosophy is “Enhancing Beauty, Not Covering It Up.”   We believe strongly that beauty begins on the inside and as women we must do all that we can to stress less and look our best.  Today’s woman is on the go, she values her time and her image.  Today’s woman can’t afford the worry that goes along with choosing the right make up or the time it takes to achieve that polished look.  That’s why F.O.G. Cosmetics is the one stop shop for the women on the go and women in the know.  F.O.G. Cosmetics would like to introduce the new customized “Total Face Kit.”  Our face kit has taken the clutter and guest work out of make up.  Our kits are specialized with the individual in mind and caters to the working and busy woman who don’t have time to use 20 different products.  Our “Total Face Kit” is a refillable compact that is designed to perfectly match your color, shade and skin tone.  Everything you need . . .  eye shadow, lip color, blush powder and the application tools are in our “Total Face Kit.”   You will love the sleek, stylish compact design!
