Pinched

Flower Beauty Pinched Blush Bomb ($9.99 for 0.3 oz.) is a light-medium peach with warm undertones. It was fairly balanced between pink and orange, so it may appear pinker on those with cooler undertones and more orange on those with warmer undertones. The texture was lightweight, spreadable, and easy to work with as it felt more gel-like–more substantial but not heavy or cream-like but not was watery as a typical liquid blush. It had buildable pigmentation from semi-sheer to mostly opaque, which applied evenly and blended out nicely. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably on me.

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.

This is the shade in this range that I enjoy the most. There are reviews on Ulta saying that it shows up “way too orange” on one fair-skinned wearer, and on me it’s very warm and sandy. It’s really neat that it looks so much pinker on you than it does on me. <3

Flower Beauty intrigues me, I hear nothing but great things, especially about their Lash Warrior mascara. I wonder if Ulta ever does a BOGO 50% with them?

Another very natural looking, healthy glow type shade by Flower. No doubt, this shade too light for my complexion, but a beautiful one for those who are lighter.

I love this shade! It looks very neutral peach on me, but I also use it to mix in with other Blush Bombs to neutralize other colors a little bit, too!
