I have never tried anything from Flower Beauty but was needing a new foundation so I thought I'd give this a try. I love the way it dispenses with the pump and it's easy to control the amount dispensed by how far you depress the pump top down. I have the shade Porcelain L1 which is the perfect shade for me right now in summer. This goes on easily and it does have the nude skin feel as claimed on the bottle but it sure doesn't give much coverage. I do not want a full coverage look but I do prefer a medium coverage and it's ok if a few freckles peep through. The first time I tried this I built it up applying two layers using both a brush and a beauty sponge to give the best finish. I did set this with a loose powder and a makeup setting spray. I didn't like the look much though as it was too much product and it looked cakey and not like skin. It also did not have staying power and within 5 hours I had patchiness and breakdown by my nose and chin. The second time I tried this I only used one layer and it looked okay when I went to work and it looked like regular skin and was a nice finish. By lunchtime though it was already very patchy and didn't look so good. This says "all day wear" on the bottle. It isn't. About an hour before I got off work, I was looking in the mirror and it looked like I had just skipped doing my makeup at all that day. I don't know where it went, but it looked like I didn't put anything on. I do not touch my face or sit at a desk where I rest my cheek on my palm or anything else that could potentially remove makeup. I do wear a face mask from time to time to tend to certain patients, but this is a daily routine and my regular makeup doesn't budge even with use of a face mask, so I think it's just not the best foundation. I don't want to even try this a third time as it needs to perform and fit in with my daily life and routines and obviously it does not. This was a little over $12 at Wal-Mart. I have used it twice, but have not been too pleased with the results on either day. I am definitely returning this product.

I had always overlooked Flower Beauty at Walmart and Ulta after having some weird experiences with their products some years back, but after discovering the wonder that is the Lash Warrior mascara (my latest HG, knocking Too Faced Better Than Sex out of the top slot), I figured I'd look into what other products the brand had to offer. After perusing Youtube to see what was new, I saw that a lot of people were raving about the Petal Pout lipsticks, so I gave it a shot and am SO happy that I did!I have the shade Spiced Petal, which is a slightly deeper, medium nude with a neutral-to-cool undertone that is just so flattering against my fair, olive complexion. This shade is in the cream formula, and it should be noted that this range comes in both cream and matte varieties. (I've not tried the matte, so I can't speak to those just yet.) Several people have compared the shade choices to be very Tom Ford-esque, and I can see why. When I think of an ultimate nude shade, I think Tom Ford, but with these, you can get the look at literally less than 20% of what you'd pay for their pricier counterpart! There are lighter nudes, which would work beautifully on much fairer complexions, as well as a handful of brighter and darker shades. But Spiced Petal is the nude I've been looking for since I ran out of my Smashbox lipstick in "Audition" and didn't want to splash out the $21 to replace it. This shade is so perfect, as it looks so natural yet so plush and polished. I really love it for all kinds of looks, from a smokier eye to a "no makeup makeup" look.The formula is lovely. It's not especially hydrating, but with proper lip prep, it's not drying either. I don't find that it accentuates lip lines or causes any patches of lip to show, and it's quite full coverage despite being so creamy. It's not a glossy formula; I'd say it's a bit more of a satin finish, which is perfect for a shade like this. It makes my lips look full and healthy, and I really love that.The packaging is very pretty and simple, with a clear cap, white bottom, and rose gold tube. The bullet retracts all the way down, and the cap feels secure. At first, I was worried that the cap might come off in my bag, having had that experience with previous Flower lip products, but they have obviously improved on the design and made it far sturdier.I purchased mine for a little under $6 at Walmart, but I know Ulta carries these lipsticks for around $9, and the Flower site seems to have them for around $7. That's quite a discrepancy on Ulta's part, if you ask me, but you're more likely to find it there than you are at a Walmart, since so few WM's carry the Flower brand these days. You're getting 3.2 grams of product, which is slightly more than you get in other lipsticks. Either way, no matter where you pick these up, they are a fantastic deal. They beat out the quality of MAC, in my opinion, and are a fraction of the cost. I will definitely explore other colors in this range, as well as check out more of Flower's lip offerings, as this and the mascara have definitely changed my opinion of the brand!Also, this whole brand is cruelty free!

For reference I wear Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless b/w shades 310 and 312. If you could only buy 1 of Flower Beauty's galaxy glaze lip glosses, I would 10/10 suggest this shade!!! It's a very soft, nude pink w/ fine glitter. Although the gloss formula is heavier & thicker & I can feel it on my lips compared to Nyx's butter glosses, this is so much livelier... Know what I mean? Haha. It's completely wearable & suitable for daily use, but I'm very sad that it's not holographic which its name states!

For reference I wear Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless b/w shades 310 and 312. This is an odd shade that ranges clear, yellowish w/ a tint of orange which actually completely washed me out & was nowhere near flattering. The shade is actually quite opaque for a lip gloss & I couldn't easily see my natural lip color underneath. The glitter was very fine but adds a pretty sparkle. It doesn't have a taste but I will complain that the gloss itself is kinda heavy compared to Nyx Butter Gloss. The gloss is also quite creamy to the point that I can feel this on my lips which kinda bothers me. The flat applicator was also odd b/c it seemed floppy.-1 floppy applicator-1 heavy gloss
