Hello Beauties! If you follow my blog, you are aware of my little Flower haul post.
I spent time playing with all the little goodies I chose and I quickly discovered what I liked and what I didn't like. I decided to start my review with the not so pretty, and it pains me to do so because I spent months looking forward to this line.
So, I will start off with the liquid foundation.
I was really disappointed with this product, it just didn't work well at all for me. It didn't cover well, and it seemed to almost exaggerate blemishes. I did one side of my face with Flower and one with my current liquid foundation and I knew instantly I did not like Flower at all. Also, I could feel it sitting on my skin, unlike my other foundations, which is a huge strike to me.
Pro: One positive about this line is they do offer a nice range of colors.
Would I recommend this foundation? No.
Second on my not so pretty list, my eye shadow quad. This is Face the Grey.
I just hate that I don't like this quad. The colors are beautiful and first impression with the swatches was good. They felt soft and "buttery" like. But they do not function the way I had hoped they would. I used these with and without primer. I found this particular quad to be very difficult to work with. The darkest color didn't apply as pigmented as the swatch did, and just looked dull and chalky when applied. I did build it up quiet a bit and achieved a good solid looking color, but I know I can find a better version of the color with less effort.
The two lightest colors also applied chalky and almost patchy like. I found building it didn't help with any of them. The more you tried to work it, the muddier they ended up. I played with this quad for two days, trying to make it work, but let's be honest...it should never take that much effort with a good quality shadow.
Pro: The grey on the upper right hand of the quad was the only color I liked. It looked nice on and was easy to work with. But, that isn't enough to save this quad for me.
Would I recommend this quad? No.
*I have to mention, I have seen a review by Emily Noel on the browns quad. She seemed to like that quad, with the exception of the bronzy color in which she said it was somewhat chalky. So, I assume, that these quads are not created equal.
Lastly is the Lash Knockout Volumizing mascara.
I did like the brush on this product, but found the product itself to be lacking. I didn't feel it added anything much to my lashes. I have been using this product for the past week, and I never noticed it adding volume. I went up to 4 coats before I saw a difference. And to me, a volumizing mascara shouldn't take that many coats before you see a difference. Also, I found it to be....dry? Or maybe like I wasn't getting very much product on the wand. I twisted and scraped the sides of the container to make sure. As you can see in the picture the wand looks almost unused, and that was after a weeks worth of use.
It just isn't living up to what it says it is suppose to do, and that is to add volume. I suppose for days that you are going for a natural, no makeup look it would be decent.
On a positive note, the green mirrored packaging is cute.
Would I recommend this mascara? Sadly, No.
There we have it. I am not happy to write a review like this. However, I have to share my experience and my opinion, (keep that last word in mind).
If any of you have used any of the above mentioned and had a better experience, please share your experience!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
