Melon

Flower Beauty Melon Blush Bomb ($9.99 for 0.3 oz.) is a medium-dark, true coral with warm undertones and a dewy sheen. It appeared slightly pinker when applied sheer to medium (one to two layers) but appeared slightly warmer (and richer) when worn at semi-opaque or greater coverage (two to three layers, depending on how much was applied in each layer). The consistency is spreadable and fluid without being watery, as it has more of a gel-like texture, but I do find I prefer applying in layers to build up coverage rather than just using more product initially–it seems to yield a better, more even and precise application. It dried down for the most part but still had a luminous finish that was very my-skin-but-better. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$9.99/0.3 oz. - $33.30 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "buildable" coverage with a "natural looking" finish that "blends seamlessly" and is "non-staining." They have a gel-like consistency--more liquid-like but with more substance, a little less watery in feel--that plays better with base products than more water-like liquid/cream blushes. This type of gel texture seems to smooth over base products without lifting them up in my experience. I found the texture easy to apply over bare skin or base products with fingertips or synthetic brushes (though I tend to use fingertips for ease and because they're faster to clean between swatches!). They dried down for the most part but remained more natural to dewy in finish, which was the best of both worlds -- the sheen of liquid and cream products but without a bunch of slip-and-slide during wear.

The pigmentation ranged from shade to shade, though they were all buildable, but a couple of shades, like Bitten (deeper berry), were shades where a little went a long way; they were more semi-opaque to opaque in coverage with sheer coverage being possible by using a very small amount of product. The wear ranged from eight to nine hours before the color started to fade noticeably.

The Blush Bomb in Melon is my favorite! and I love mixing it with Pinched to tone it down when I need to as well.

This would be the shade I’d get, if I decided to try one of these blushes. It’s affordable enough to make me think about giving it a try. I’m exclusively a powder blush gal, so please forgive my ignorance with the next question: Does this go on top of foundation, but under setting powder?

It’s really however it works for you – you can apply it on bare skin, under foundation, over foundation, over powder, etc. Like if you wear full coverage foundation, it doesn’t make sense to put it under, but if you wear tinted moisturizer, then you could put it under foundation, so it depends largely on what products you’re using, what effect you’re looking for (if you put setting powder all over it, you may mattify everything).

Thank you! I never thought a gel could go over powder because it seems like it would get clumpy. But with so many usage options, I might give this product a try because it’s so inexpensive.

This has been a wonderful launch for Flower Beauty. Really nice products and a good range of shades. I have really liked all of the shades which is a first for me, I think. They are reasonably priced so I will definitely be picking up a couple the next time I go to the big city, LOL!

I just recently found out that Becca discontinued their Beach Tints and I am BEYOND devastated. I do not think anything else will ever be able to replace those, but I think I might try one of these out. The pigment looks amazing, but I’m afraid it will feel like a cheap imitation of my one true love!

Melon goes on my list! I absolutely love how fresh and really radiant this looks applied. I was scared it would be too bright and clownish when viewing the preview swatches, but it actually has a gorgeous translucent quality to it that has sold me.
