Flower Beauty's Shimmer and Strobe Highlighting Palette Review and Swatches

6:40 AM

You remember when only high end brands had amazing quality highlighters? Well, I am happy to say that those days are gone. Wet n Wild, Makeup Revolution, ColourPop all have good highlighters and now Flower Beauty does, too. I was curious about all of their new releases, but I was also skeptical as I have never tried anything and for a drugstore brand, Flower is a bit pricey. It is well worth the more expensive price tag.

This palette comes with three different highlighting shades: a golden champagne, a peachy pink, and a lighter pearly one. All of them are stunning and easy to wear. The texture is amazing! They are extremely soft and buttery without being too powdery or chalky. They are a teensy bit powdery, but it isn't too much of an issue. A little spritz of setting powder and you will be good to go. They blend onto the skin well and I haven't any issue with the powders accentuating any pores.

You can easily achieve a natural glow, or build them up to be more intense. I love that they do not have any glitter or shimmer particles. Each shade just leaves behind a beautiful, albeit rather intense, sheen. All of the shades have pretty good color payoff, so I can't really wear the gold or peachy pink shades by themselves. Well, I can, but I have to be careful and use a light hand. I usually just combine them with the pearl shade to lighten them up a bit.  There is one negative thing about these highlighters that I hinted at earlier. If you get a bit heavy handed, they can look a little thick. They aren't the best for layering in my experience, but a setting spray will help.

I'm wearing a combination of the gold and pearl shades on my cheekbones, tip of my nose, and cupid's bow. I'm in the process of trying a new bronzer, which is extremely warm toned. And that is why some parts of my face have a reddish appearance. They stay on really well without breaking apart or fading.

The wear time is great, too. I haven't noticed any fading, creasing, or separating throughout the day. The Flower Beauty Shimmer and Strobe Highlighting Palette is $14 and you can find it at Walmart (site and store) or the Flower Beauty website, which you can now order from.

Whether you are a highlighter junkie or are new to them, I recommend picking this up for yourself.

  1. This palette is gorgeous! I haven't used anything from Flower Beauty in a while, but I really liked what I had used before. I feel like it's a great price point for so many and now that they have it online, it helps make it easier to find shades, etc!

    1. Isn't it? It makes me want to try more things by Flower. I am glad it is available online, too. I am lucky in that my Walmart has a pretty good selection of her stuff, but I know most stores I have been to do not.
