A Gorgeous Glow and Bold Lips That Last With Flower Beauty #Gifted

Tuesday, November 12, 2019

It's no secret that I absolutely adore Flower Beauty: I use their products every day, feature them quite often on my Instagram and also wrote reviewed their Light Illusion Foundation and Concealer a couple of months back. So you can imagine my joy when a parcel of their products landed on my doorstep last week - it was like Christmas came early! I thought it was only right to share the products with you and give you my first impressions, so make sure you keep reading to hear what I think of them. Before I begin, I just wanted to say a huge thank you to the team at Flower Beauty for sending these out to me and I'll definitely be using them often! Now, on with the post!

First up is the Flower Beauty Supernova Celestial Skin Elixir, which just from a first glance looks absolutely stunning. I remember Barry M coming out with some highlighter drops similar to these a few years ago and everyone went absolutely crazy for them, but I never got the chance to try them out, so now I'm excited to have something similar! This product claims to hydrate, prime and smooth the skin whilst adding a stunning glow, and I can definitely say that it does just that. If you're in the mood for an all-over radiance then apply this product under your makeup and the pearlescent glow will subtly show through - enough to give you an illuminated look without being too over the top. It also looks nice applied lightly to the tops of your cheekbones over any makeup for a warm and radiant glow that is much more natural than applying loads of highlighter. So far it's a 10/10 from me, as it's perfect for injecting the glow that my skin is longing for in the dull and dreary winter months, and I can't wait to also give it a try on my body as apparently it looks dreamy on the collarbones!

When I saw that the Miracle Matte Liquid Lipsticks were included in the parcel I was honestly made up, as it was only a few days earlier that I was in Superdrug swatching them all and was very tempted to buy one. They sent me four gorgeous colours that pretty much have me covered for any occasion: an everyday, wearable nude; a girly blush pink; a bright, pillarbox red that is definitely perfect for Christmas; and a vampier mauve-purple shade. They apply with a very intense pigmentation, which is especially surprising for the darker shades as they aren't patchy in the slightest, although they do take a little bit of time to dry down. If you're a matte lip lover then these will be perfect for you, and they also act as a lovely base for a lipgloss if that's more up your street.

The next thing that I received was the In Your Prime Pore Minimising Primer, which was a pleasant addition to my collection as I've needed a new primer for quite some time now. Perhaps one of my biggest makeup struggles is that my foundation quickly wears off my nose, and so having a primer to maintain my makeup always makes a huge difference. I definitely think that it helped to minimise my pores too, creating a blurred and perfected base for my makeup, and I can't wait to keep trying it.

The final product that I was sent was their brand new Seal The Deal Luminizing Setting Spray, which I was thrilled to receive as I've seen it all over their Instagram recently. I've tried a few setting sprays in the past, and I often find that they act as though they are doing something when really they make no difference - however, this one actually works! It creates a gorgeous glow (not a wet look like some setting sprays) and honestly locks my makeup in place all day, and I think this will now be an important step in my daily makeup routine. It also leaves the skin feeling incredibly nourished and hydrated, there's genuinely nothing that I can fault!

Thank you again to the team at Flower Beauty for sending me these products (and all the way from New York as well!) as I am honestly made up with them, and I'll probably be including them in a makeup tutorial sometime soon if that is something that you guys would like to see. Let me know down in the comments what your favourite product from Flower Beauty is, as I'd love to hear which one is your fave!
