Flower Beauty Color Play Creme Eyeshadow in Wild Geranium

Flower Beauty Color Play Creme Eyeshadow in Wild Geranium 3Although 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.

Flower Beauty Color Play Creme Eyeshadow in Wild GeraniumUnlike 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.

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 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.

Flower Beauty Color Play Creme Eyeshadow in Wild Geranium CollageI’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).

  • Yup, I definitely need this one in my life.

  • I have been curious about where to start with Flower Beauty as they are readily available at Walmart now. This looks like a very pretty shade. Love rose gold. Interesting texture though. I guess a tiny bit goes a long way.

    • That’s exactly right, but because of the texture, I kinda wonder if these will ever dry out like regular cream shadows do? I have been using it for months and you can’t even tell though–those photos are not of the product brand new, I just loved it so much I decided to photograph and review 🙂

  • I haven’t tried anything from Flower yet, I need to look up where they are available in the US. That rose gold shadow is so pretty, and the packaging is really lovely too!

  • Ooooh, so sparkly and pretty! The texture is interesting, but I always worry that these mousse textures dry out more quickly or “grow stuff”.

    • I hadn’t really considered growing stuff… it hasn’t changed texture at all in the four months I’ve had it though!

  • Ahh that looks so pretty!

  • OOOohhh!!! *flails* Love it!!! ^_^

  • Ohhh! It’s so pretty, I need it!

  • Such a pretty color!

  • I have the same shade and THIS PRODUCT BAFFLES ME. WHY DOES IT EVEN HAVE A STOPPER, REAL QUESTION. The mousse consistency is a nice change and the colour is seriously gorgeous, but it just looks weird and too frosty/metallic on my skintone! I definitely want to check out her other products though!

    • haha I assume so it doesn’t dry out as quickly or maybe get things in it? aww I adore this shade but let me know if you find another product you love!
