Flower Beauty Eye See You

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

I could not wait very long to dig into the Flower Beauty Eye See You eye beauty set I got during Boxing Week.

There are two different Eye See You sets released by Flower Beauty for the holiday.

Each set (reg. $19, value $31.94) includes:
- a 8-shade Shadow Play eyeshadow palette (0.05oz/ 1.5g)
- an Ultimate eyeshadow brush, and
- an Extreme Measures lengthening mascara.

I am reviewing the rose gold set today, as the eyeshadow colour combination is more of my taste - warm tone, with a few browns and darker shades. The purple set leans toward blue tone, which I might not use as often.

Flower Beauty's regular eyeshadow quads retail for $9.98 each and the 8-shade palettes are only available in these sets, so this set is already a deal at $19, not counting the extra products.

And if you grab it after Christmas like I did, they would be 50% off (during Boxing Week) or 75% off (as soon as New Year hit), even better!

This is the outside (excessive but festive) packaging, lots of space to list the contents and their ingredients (in the back).

The packaging of the individual products is beautiful, black and gold theme. Let's see!

The Shadow Play eyeshadows are infused with Ginko Biloba extract, supposedly gives them the luminous finish. I do find them easy to blend, with various levels of pigmentation and finishes (see below).

No individual names on the eyeshadows nor the palette itself. I heard the 4 shades on the right are from the existing Foxy Browns quad while the other 4 are exclusives to the palette.

Swatches below are done with some building up work, i.e. the eyeshadows are not one swipers but pigmentation improves after second/ third layers.

Here's the first row.

The peachy orange is hardly visible on my skin tone and kicks up some powder with the dip of the brush.

The glittery black is unfortunately not that black, more like a charcoal. The silver glitters are not visible on the eyes, no worries.

The pink is quite pale, good for brow bone area. Also a little soft/ chalky.

The light brown is slightly metallic, great for a transition job.

The second row is where all the jam is. I love it!

The purple with strong tint of grey builds up the nicest. It shows up lighter on the eyes, so again, build it up if you want that intense purple sheen.

The metallic rose is pretty, my lid colour of choice.

The matte brown is another hit in the palette. Enough said?

The grey looks boring in the pan but comes quite alive in swatches. Surprise!

The Ultimate eyeshadow brush (reg. $7.98), meant for all-over shading/ highlighting, deserves some mention too!

It is a great full sized bonus to the palette, not one of those crappy brushes included in palettes just to be thrown away later.

I love the soft (synthetic) bristles and the "flat on one side and rounded on the other" handle. I was a little skeptic about blending with its size and bristle density, but it works better than I expected.

Lastly, the Extreme Measures lengthening mascara in Intense Black (also full sized, 0.25oz/ 7g, reg. $6.98).

Bonus point for the appearance - sleek shiny black packaging, ergonomic handle for good grip.

The formula has Red Seaweed (for elasticity), shiny Polymers (for shine) and vegetal Polymers (for adherence).

The brush is nice, with an hourglass shape. It separates my lashes well but is too flexible/ bendy to offer a good control during application, I find.

Overall, I am a fan of this set for its value and the quality of most products. If Flower Beauty brings out more palettes, I'll definitely explore some more.

Stay tuned for the review of Flower Beauty Color in the Lines mini Lip Chubby beauty set tomorrow and a FOTD to follow. I am disappointed that the Brush Up! set (only brushes) didn't make it to Canada.
