What I picked from Flower Beauty
I first heard about Flower Beauty through one of British Beauty Blogger’s tweets. She was talking positively about the products so I rushed to ask her for some recommendations. Five minutes later my virtual basket was ready for checkout. Soon after the brand’s creator, Draw Barrymore, was being interviewed by Sali Hughes in one of her In The Bathroom With. It’s how I knew it was worth to have a closer look at the selection, especially when the brand’s ethos is all about a great quality at an affordable price.
This foundation sits somewhere between a cream and a liquid. I heard it being compared to Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua and it’s currently being hyped up as the possibly best for that price (£12,99). I have been using it this for about two weeks and I have to say I currently prefer this over Armani Luminous Silk. I find it applies better and the finish is way more glowy and frankly it’s what I imagined Luminous Silk to be like. I find the longevity is really good, the coverage I’d say is medium but buildable. It feels and looks high end. I think it’s brilliant and it’s my definite current favourite.
Even though the formula of this is creamy I find it not moisturising enough. I still prefer my Glossier Stretch Concealer over this. It applies and blends really well though plus the coverage is way better than Glossier’s. Still it just doesn’t sit and stay as well as I would like it to on my fussy skin.
I decided to give a liquid matte lipstick another go even though it hasn’t been my favourite formula in general despite everybody else loving it. I quite prefer a classic bullet. This one however is beautiful- soft and cushion like when swatched. It’s comfortable to wear and it doesn’t crease or dry out and vanish in a heartbeat. It stays on evenly and doesn’t turn into chalk unlike some of the other matte lipsticks. I also quite like the shade selection, especially the many interesting nudes. I’ll definitely be repurchasing.
