Flower Beauty is now available at Chemist Warehouse stores in Australia. It has previously been really hard to get a hold of Flower Beauty products as they were only available in American stores and the Flower Beauty website only ships to the USA. Chemist Warehouse don’t have the entire range of Flower Beauty products, but they do stock a good range of products if you want to try out the brand. I’ve swatched a couple of the product ranges that you can find in store to show you what’s available. The Chemist Warehouse website has all the products that they stock online.
Flower Beauty is a cruelty free brand created by Drew Barrymore. She strives to make the “best quality, most efficacious products at an affordable price”. I have contacted both Flower Beauty and Chemist Warehouse to try and get a list of vegan products, but neither have replied to me yet. I’ve actually contacted Chemist Warehouse so many times now to try and get more information on which products they will stock in future, and the vegan list, but it has been impossible to get a reply from their PR department. It’s certainly something they need to improve on, and fast.
One of the products I most wanted to try are the Flower Beauty Flower Pots Powder Blushes. Chemist Warehouse stocks 4 out of the 5 shades, Sweet Pea, Peach Primrose, Wild Rose and Warm Hibiscus. Deep Peony is not available in Australia. I bought the shade Sweet Pea, and it is a nice shade, but can be slightly patchy on my fair skin (I think it would be fine on skin any darker than mine – aka most people). The other three swatched nicer than Sweet Pea though. They are very cute with the flower etched into the powder and very affordable at A$13.99.
I had seen swatches of the Flower Beauty Shimmer & Strobe Highlighting Palette online, and it looked like a nice product, so I wanted to swatch it myself. As you can see from the photo, the back pigment of the shades is much too dark for my very fair skin, but the formula is really nice. When on the skin, the product is reflective, but not glittery at all, so it gives a lovely sheen without being over the top. This is the sort of highlighting formula I like to use, and it suits all skin types and ages really well.
The Flower Beauty Petal Pout Lip Color is a tradtional bullet lipstick that comes in two different formulas, matte and cream, with 20 different shades. I swatched all the shades so that you could get an idea of what they have on offer. The Flower Beauty Petal Pout Lip Colors come in 010 Bare Pout (cream), 015 Peachy Nude (cream), 020 Naked Blush (matte), 025 Warm Sand (matte), 030 Cinnamon Crush (matte), 035 Spiced Petal (cream), 040 Pink Dusk (cream), 045 Chestnut Kiss (cream), 050 Autumn Rose (matte), 055 Berry-more (matte), 060 Rouge Berry (cream), 065 Rosey Garden (matte), 075 Peach Posy (cream), 085 Hibis-kiss (matte), 090 Bright Peony (cream), 095 Pink Orchid (matte), 100 Poppy Pout (matte), 110 Ruby Rouge (cream), 115 Dahlia Desire (cream) and 125 Wild Berry (matte). I bought Spiced Petal on the day I saw the stand at my local Chemist Warehouse, and by the time I went back to swatch all the colours, the shade was already sold out. It is supposed to be a good drugstore dupe for Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk lipstick. I don’t have the lipstick, but I do have the lip liner, and Spiced Petal matches it nicely.
The Flower Beauty Petal Pout Lip Liners were made to match the Petal Pout Lip Colors. The lip liners come in a mechanical, retractable pencil and includes a built in sharpener on the end. It’s similar packaging to the Eye Of Horus Artistry Lip Liners, but the Flower Beauty liners are completely coloured in the colour of that particular shade. The Petal Pout Lip Liners come in 8 shades, Nude, Beige, Toffee, Rose, Fuchsia, Cherry, Violet and Plum. The range is missing a nude-pink, similar to that of Charlotte Tilbury Pillow talk to match those sorts of shades in the range.
That’s all the swatches I did with the testers in store, but I can go back and do more if there’s something else you want to see. I didn’t bother swatching the Light Illusion Foundation or the Light Illusion Full Coverage Concealer as the lightest shade of each is far too dark for me, so the swatches wouldn’t be very useful. I know a lot of people have asked Flower Beauty to expand the shade range of both of those products, but they are yet to do that. I hope they listen to consumers and do it, as I would love to try the products if they were closer to my skin colour. The product I most want to try from Flower Beauty is Blush Bomb Color Drops For Cheeks. It’s a liquid blush that comes in 6 shades, but it’s not available in Australia and impossible to get online. I’m really hoping Chemist Warehouse pick up the range, as I know it’s a popular product. I’m sure a lot of people would also like to see the Flower Beauty Ultimate 3-in-1 Blending Sponge available here too. Have you tried anything from Flower Beauty?
