Flower Beauty Flower Pots Powder Blush Review:


Well, this flush of color did not fail to disappoint glamour babes. Flower Beauty’s Flower Pots Powder Blush has got me in this crazy little thing called love, and I had a feeling it would. I have not been dissatisfied by a flower beauty product yet! Wait, let me not jinx that statement, I take it back, lol. http://<a href=”http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?b=991866&u=1496947&m=71085&urllink=&afftrack=”>New Flower Pots Blush – FlowerBeauty.com</a> Product description:

Naturally radiant cheeks that are as pretty as a flower petal! Flower Pots Powder Blush blends on smooth and silky, enhancing your skin tone with a healthy warm flush of color……I can tell you right off the bat, the five shades available (Sweet Pea, Warm Hibiscus, Peach Primrose, Wild Rose, and Deep Peony) will flatter any skin tone, and are the perfect summer accessories for a colorful glowing complexion. Sweet Pea was my all time favorite as was Peach Primrose and Wild Rose, but they were sold out. Next time Walmart. 

Sweet Pea is a warm dusty rose with a satin finish. The formula is finely milled, super duper pigmented, lightweight, and it has a creamy, velvety smooth texture that makes building and blending of the shades effortless.

Oh! And the color payoff is incredible! I was so happy to see my soft rosy cheeks stay with me for a full 8 hours. I am definitely going back for the other two shades, I hope they are back in stock. Fingers crossed!So, I have heard through the Instagram grapevine from several beauty bloggers that these are a dupe of Milani’s Rose Powder Blushes-I beg to differ. The blush compacts are quite different in size. Milani’s are huge comparing to Flower Beauty’s.Both carry different shades and finishes- matte vs. satin. The flower embossments on the blushes are no way near close to each other or are from the same plant family. Drew chose the Camellia flower which is the brands signature flower. Milani on the other hand embossed their blossoming blushes with a rose. The only similarity I see is the price point. Depending on the store or website, the blushes run between $9 to $10. That’s  still an overall good price for a drugstore blush if you ask me.

If you can’t find the Flower Beauty Flower Pots at your local Walmart, look no further boys and girls, FlowerBeauty.com is open for business!

Haul until your heart is content.

Stay beautiful! Xo.

Kat Von D Shade + Light Blush Review:

I am not 100 percent sure of Kat Vin D’ s Shade + Light Blush will be coming back to Sephora or on the KVD website, but in case they do glamour babes, I suggest you hold on to your $25 and save it for a rainy day or possibly a better makeup haul. These two tone blushes leave something to be desired.

I was lucky enough to find four (Hansel & Gretel, Mickey & Mallory, Sid & Nancy, and Bonnie & Clyde) of the seven Shade + Light blushes at TJ Maxx and Marshall’s for $6.99 each, and was excited to try them after my positive experience with KVD’s Everlasting Liqiuid Lipstick.


Sadly, my blush experience was not a positive one, sighhhhhhh.


Hansel (dark) is terracotta & Gretel (light) is apricot.Bonnie (dark) is raspberry pink & Clyde (light) is lilac.Mickey (dark) is a baked peach & Mallory (light) is a porcelain pink.
Sid (dark) is a bright tulip & Nancy (light) is a ballet pink.
The not so innovative two in one matte finish blushes apply very sheer, blotchy, uneven, and did not wear long (4 hours). The build ability turned out to be weak as well. Did you see the semi-sheer mediocre flush of color in my photos? Yea, that’s four applications worth on my cheeks. At least it didn’t turn out cakey, now there’s a perk! Lol. The finely milled powder produced a ton of kickback, making my sink rather colorful, and my swatches applied quite chalky, and streaky. I had to trace over the swatches repeatedly for the color depth to appear somewhat vibrantly on my wrist, it was a little tedious. My blush pans did manage to stay in the compacts though.

 I have read other reviews that they do fall out after awhile due to the cheap adhesive applied to the backs of each one. Not cool, if you actually paid $25. A compact shouldn’t be made so poorly when charging so much for the finished product, just sayin is all.

At least I got four for the price of one when you think about it, I can’t be too disappointed. Have you tried Kat Von D’s Shade + Light Blush? What do you think of them? Money well spent or nah?

Stay beautiful! Xo

BH Cosmetics Floral Blush Cheek Duo (Caribbean Coral and Fiji Fun) Review:

Wow, BH Cosmetics Floral Blush Cheek Color has some serious pigment glamour babes, and I am hooked! This is yet another company I found through Instagram that I think is worth trying, especially if you love affordability and cruelty free makeup. BH Cosmetics also carries vegan products, hooray! Just click on the link http://makeup.bhcosmetics.com/bhcosmetics/Vegan-Products, and from there you will see all the vegan friendly goods available to you. It’s a win, win situation for us animal lovers! Sorry boys and gals, the Floral Blush Duos that I am about to review are not vegan, but BH has plenty of gorgeous options for you to try.

On with the review!

BH Cosmetics Floral Blush Cheek Duos come in tones of pink, coral, berry, and bronze. And, at $5.50 a pop, which is currently the sale price on their site, I picked two out of the four; Caribbean Coral and Fiji Fun.
Caribbean Coral is a duo of pink and peach corals.

Fiji Fun is a duo of lively rich mauve’s and berries. Each one has two complimentary shades, bright and deep. Swirl both shades together to create a vibrant multidimensional glow, or wear them separately for a healthy flush of color. The possibilities are endless!

The formulation is lightweight, silky smooth, finely milled (kick back dust alert), and have great pigmentation. The satin finish blushes apply evenly and easily producing no streaks or patchiness, making them super buildable and suitable for all skin tones when wanting a noticeable set of colorful cheeks. These blushes are just what I needed to bring color back into my complexion as the fall season transitions to winter.
I use a very light hand with the Floral Blushes because of the high vibrancy. I gradually pick up color with my brush (BH Cosmetics Deluxe Fan Brush) as I begin applying, so I don’t end up looking like an utter clown. I wish not to be apart of the Ringling Brothers Circus anytime soon, lol.



The long lasting wear isn’t bad either. These tropical inspired duos stay put for 9 hours if not longer. A girl’s gotta wash her face at some point, lol. Pretty incredible for a $5 investment, right?!

Sleek, portable, with a mirror, and magnetic closure.

 BH Cosmetics Floral Blush Cheek Duo compacts set the tone for paradise anytime, anywhere!

Mai Tai anyone?!

Stay beautiful! Xo.

Wet n Wild Color Icon Ombre Blush (Mai Tai Buy You A Drink and The Princess Daiquiries) Review:

img_6473
Okay, so I may not have been impressed with Wet n Wild’s Ombre Lip Wands, but their Color Icon Ombre Blushes are a whole other story glamour babes, and at $4.99 a pop! You may agree with me as well. Let me just say that these Ombre blushes from Wet n Wild took me forevvvvvvvveeeerrrr to find. It felt like I was searching for the holy grail! I went to three Target stores in my hood and I was finally able to get two out of the three from the collection. The search left me tired, excited, accomplished, and complete. And most importantly, I was ready to play with my new finds!

Mai Tai Buy You a Drink? Is a gorgeous array of beachy, peachy, corally nudes.

   The Princess Daiquiries are beautiful clouds of soft baby pinks.
  
I do apologize, I could not find the third shade Purple Haze (pinky purple). I’m guessing that was the most popular color out of the bunch.

So we all know what ombré is, right? If not, it’s okay, I will school you in a nutshell. Ombré is when color is graduated from light to dark (or in some cases dark to light, think hair) much like these pretty blushes!

The compacts are pretty basic yet sleek and sturdy, very mod if you ask me. I love that these compacts have clear windows so you can see the shades easily.

 They do run on the pastel side, but oddly enough the blushes don’t apply that way. They are finely milled and will produce kickback dust. So be careful if you wish not to look like a pastel speckled egg for the holidays. Wet n Wild’s Color Icon Ombré Blush gives off soft and sheer color when applied, and come in different finishes from what I have noticed. Mai Tai Buy you a drink has a quite a bit of shimmer leaning towards a pearlized finish.

   Whereas, The Princess Daiquries has more of a satin finish with minimal shimmer.

 They may also be used as an eyeshadow if I you’d like to create a subtle color wash over your eyelids. I use them for the inner corners of my eyes and brow bones when I need a huge wake up call in the eye department. The staying power of these ombré blushes lasted about 5 hours before they fully faded away. I’m not so sure how these will work for deeper skin tones since the colors appear faint once applied. I know Hard Candy and NYX have created a line of ombré blushes ($8-$10) of their own that are highly pigmented from what I have seen and tested in stores. They may just tickle your fancy if Wet n Wild’s don’t give you the color satisfaction you need. I’m fair skinned and I couldn’t be happier with the subtle color payoff each blush has given me. That is all I need to build happy glowing cheeks! Stay beautiful! Xo.
