Although I was excited to learn the Drew Barrymore’s makeup brand, Flower Beauty, was coming to Canada, I was planning to have self-control–at least temporarily. That didn’t happen and I blame Natalie for my wonderful purchase of Flower Beauty Color Play Creme Eyeshadow in Wild Geranium. Don’t worry, it’s a good blame.
Unlike the cream shadows I’m most familiar with (mainly, Mac Paint Pots and Maybelline Color Tattoos), the Flower Beauty Color Play Creme Eyeshadow in Wild Geranium is not at all firm. You unscrew the lid–taking a moment to appreciate this gorgeous rose-gold packaging–and there’s a stopper. Underneath the stopper, the shadow is basically a creamy mousse. It’s a light, airy consistency. The shade I picked up is a stunning rose gold.
I apply Flower Beauty Color Play Creme Eyeshadow in Wild Geranium using my fingertips, and I’ve actually been using the product that is stuck to the bottom of the stopper. You can sheer it out, or let is dry a little and build it up on the lid. It’s very easy to blend out the edges, and while I’m sure this would work as a base for other shadows every time I apply it I think it looks so pretty I just leave it on its own.
The Flower Beauty Color Play Creme Eyeshadow in Wild Geranium feels like nothing on the eyelids, which I’m sure would be especially nice if you had dry lids. The experience reminds me a little of the Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Eyeshadow, which I love, but it significantly more expensive. In terms of wear, it can start to crease a little by the end of the day, but I just blend it back out with my fingertip if I notice that start to happen.
I’m absolutely hooked on the Flower Beauty Color Play Creme Eyeshadow in Wild Geranium, and there’s a gorgeous range of other colours available. I do not need more cream shadows, but when it comes to these, I am definitely tempted to make an exception. The only sad bit is I haven’t managed to find the olive green shade Time Willow Tell in Canada yet.
Have you tried any products from Flower Beauty yet? This was my first experience with the brand, but I do have my eye on the lip crayons (of course).
