Brand Review: Flower Beauty

I have always been interested in Flower Beauty. I remember years ago it was in Walmart Canada, but the products I bought just didn’t really sing to me. When the brand left Canada, I didn’t think much of it. Then, I began to see the blush bombs, and the foundation, and highlighter being used by some of my favourite content creators. I was really pleased when I saw the brand was put on well.ca. 

Here is the story according to their website:  “FLOWER Beauty was the brainchild and mission of Drew Barrymore and her straight forward, no-nonsense philosophy of empowerment: that women everywhere deserve the best quality, most efficacious products at an affordable price.  Growing up in the makeup artists chair, Drew has learned a thing or two about beauty. Now as a mother, award-winning actress, entrepreneur, producer and best-selling author she wants to share her passion.

I was interested in gathering only a few items from the brand including their cult-favourite blush bombs and the highlighting palette that Andrea Matilliano uses. I also got the concealer and the blush pyramid. 

Let’s start with the concealer. I’d say this is just a classic concealer, nothing too special about it. It wears and blends out really nicely. I got the shade fair. This is a good shade for me, though the shade range could be expanded. This is a really nice lightweight concealer, I find that this concealer really covers the dark circles without looking cakey or heavy. 

The flower beauty blush bomb is the next product I was excited to try. I got the shade melon. I would say these are similar to the Glossier cloud paints but the cloud pants are less liquid and airier than the flower. I find the Flower Beauty ones almost have a thicker consistency whereas the glossier has a lighter consistency and dry more satin whereas the Flower Beauty one dries a bit more glossy. 

The highlighting palette is called the shimmer and strobe highlighting palette. There is champagne, pink champagne, and a more golden highlighter in the palette. The palette is super smooth and buttery and appears shimmery on the skin not metallic. I am not surprised by the quality of the palette, but I am pleased that it has the same feeling as a high end highlighter This is a lovely gem and I think if you like a highlighter and want something that can be built up or sheered out this is the perfect palette for you. 

The blush pyramid in peach glow. I bought this thing it might be similar to the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick. This is not similar. I am not really sure how to use this. As a blush, this does work, but it does appear a bit chunky on the skin. I like this as an eyeshadow but I want to continue trying to use it as a blush. I love me an all in one shimmer brick so I am going to keep try to use it and see if it can be diffused into the skin the way I like most of my blushes.

 

Overall I would give this brand a 4/5 stars. This brand is expensive for the drugstore. I really enjoy this brand, and enjoy that the packaging and product feels high quality. If you are Canadian you can buy this on well.ca
