FLOWER Cream Eye Shadow in Wild Geranium: Swatches and Review

I was recently gifted a bunch of Flower cosmetic items because my area still doesn't have them available.  This has been one of my favorite items I've tried from Flower so far.  
First off, I love the packaging! I'm a packaging freak and a sucker for anything white.  This is a similar type of packaging to the Maybelline Color Tattoos but it has a square shape that I am loving.  

Once you open the package, you'll find the stopper. Don't throw this away.  If you've used the L'oreal Infalliable eye shadows, this is the same thing.  You'll need to keep it to keep the product in place.  I'm hoping it helps it from drying out to quickly as well.  

The consistency is mousse like and so creamy.  It was a dream to apply and blend.  As you can see, it's much more of a creamy texture than the Maybelline Color Tattoos or the MAC Paint Pots.  The formula is very user friendly.  

The color is a beautiful light golden bronze shade.  The pigmentation is amazing and the color was very vivd on the eye lid. I paired this with Urban Decay's Chopper eye shadow for an amazing summer look.  
I found that the shadow performed better when I topped with a powder eye shadow, but I did also enjoy wearing it one it's own.  However, I do suggest using some type of eye shadow primer because after about 4 to 5 hours without a primer the shadow had faded terribly.

Overall, I think this is a great product.  Even if you don't like cream eye shadows, I would recommend you trying this out because it's one of the easiest cream eye shadow formulas I've ever worked with.  

Once I can find these in my area, I will be looking to purchase more.

Thanks for reading.
