Review - Flower Beauty - Face the Grey Eyeshadow Quad

Hello everyone,

I recently purchased, prior to the no-buy, the Flower Beauty Face the Grey Eyeshadow Quad (EQ1).  Flower Beauty is a new product line at Wal-mart created in part by Drew Barrymore.  You can see their website here.  The packaging states that the product is "proudly made in the USA" and that the company "never tests on animals".

I really like the cute packaging on the Flower Beauty products.  They are light but sturdy, and not cumbersome to hold.  The rose gold detailing is a pretty extra.  The eyeshadow pans are large, so for $9.98, you are getting a good bit of product.  I like the magnetic closure on the quad as it feels like if I were to throw it in my makeup bag it won't open and spill eyeshadow everywhere.  The quad does not include a mirror.

Face the Grey has four colors, a shimmery light purple, a matte light grey, a shimmery dark pink, and a dark matte purple.  All shades have a nice texture, but I felt that the shimmery shades had a great deal of fallout.  All the colors swatched wonderfully.

I would certainly suggest using an eye primer when applying these shades to the eye.  Without an eye primer the matte grey was very light and did not appear on my eyelid.  The colors popped when I used an eye primer with them.  The shimmery colors wanted to travel a bit, so I found glittery bits on my cheek and on my nose as the day passed.  The palette works well together and I found the colors to be quite blendable.
