For the longest time, Flower Beauty was a brand I felt very meh about it. The few things I tried just didn’t do it for me. However, when I saw swatches of the Jungle Lights Eyeshadow Palette, I thought it was STUNNING. I decided to buy it and a few other things but let’s talk about the palette first.
The Jungle Lights Palette is $18.00 and you get six metallic shades. The packaging is cheap plastic with no mirror. For $18.00, I would like to see sturdier packaging, especially since these shadows are so fragile. I do NOT recommend ordering from Ulta because odds are this palette will arrive broken; I speak from experience🥴
As for the shadows themselves, they are gorgeous. They feel very similar to a Colourpop Super Shock Shadow and since they are a more creamy texture, they apply better with a finger than a brush. They also create a ton of fallout if applied with a brush. The shade names and descriptions from top to bottom, left to right are:
- Amazon- metallic gold
- Anaconda- metallic forest green
- Tiger Lily- metallic coppery red
- Paradise- metallic champagne
- Jaguar- metallic blackened purple with pink shimmer; this shadow will blend out gray
- Wild- metallic icy mauve
I created three looks using this palette. I almost always use an eyeshadow primer and set it with powder. I did use matte eyeshadows as eyeliners in a couple of the looks since there are no mattes in the palette. I really don’t have much to say about each individual look because I like them all so I’ll just jump into the step by step process.
- I applied Wild all over the lid.
- I used a highlighter in my inner corner and a matte black shadow on my water line.
- I applied Amazon on my lid.
- I applied Paradise in my inner corner.
- I applied a matte brown shadow in my water line.
- I smudged Anaconda on my lower lash line.
- I applied Jaguar all over my lid and blended it into my crease. I also smudged it on my lower lash line.
- I applied Wild over most of my lid and in my inner corner.
- I applied Paradise in my inner corner on top of Wild.
- I applied Tiger Lily on my water line.
- Crease Brush
- Detail Crease Brush
- Flat Eyeshadow Brush
- Angled Liner/Brow Brush
- Smudge Brush
- Eye Crease Brush– I use this for inner corner & brow highlights.
- Blending Brush– I use this brush to blend out the edges and set my primer.
If you are curious about any of the other products on my face, you can find these looks in my recent posts on Instagram.
I can truly say I have never used a blush as much as I’ve used the Flower Pots Blush in Berry-More. This rosy berry beauty is $10.00 and worth every penny. The formula is fantastic. It’s so easy to blend and build up. It also adds a gorgeous glow to the skin without being glittery. I would consider this blush to be “fool proof” and I can not recommend it enough.
I don’t love these two products quite as much as the first two, but neither is bad. The Bitten Lip Stain is $10.00 and I have it in the shade Tempt, a bright berry red. The formula is fantastic. It’s comfortable, long wearing and leaves behind a pretty pink stain. My only issue with this lippie is the color. It’s a bit brighter than what I prefer but I am able to make it more wearable (for me) by blotting it. I could also see it being beautiful during the Christmas season.
The Scribble Stick is $10.00 and I have it in the shade Mauvelous, a brown toned mauve. This is a multi-tasking product that can be used on the eyes, lips and cheeks. I bought it to use as a lipstick and that’s the only way I’ve currently tried it. I don’t love it as a lipstick, though. It’s easy to apply but it’s a dry matte and uncomfortable. It also doesn’t last long on the lips and if a lip product is dry, I expect it to be long lasting. Out of all these products, I recommend this one the least.
I am so glad I decided to give Flower Beauty another chance. Most of these products could be sold at high end prices because they’re that good. What should I try from the brand next? Thanks for reading and have a great day!
