Phytosurgence Amber Aura is a moderately warm-toned, medium brown with a pearl finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $17.07 and contains 0.14 oz.
Phytosurgence Amber Aura Flash Florescence Cream Shadow ($17.07 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with warm, brown undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer applied with a fingertip, which could be diffused with a fingertip or applied using a fluffy brush for an instantly sheer effect.
The texture was smooth, lightweight, and thin with light slip--enough to feel like a cream product but wasn't truly wet or slippery!--that adhered well to bare skin and blended out nicely along the edges. It dried down to a more transfer-resistant, powder-like finish that stayed in place well for eight and a half hours on me.
FURTHER READING: Formula Overview, which is a detailed review of the range as a whole.
Inspired by the different pigments found in plants and flowers, Flash Florescence is our take on a cream shadow made for everyday life. The creamy texture of these shadows allow for easy application with fingers or a brush, and provides a good amount of working time before they dry down to a powder finish. Whether you are using these as a “one and done” shade, or an accent colour on your lids, there is surely a colour in this collection for you. CoQ10 is also added to provide some antioxidant power to this formula (similar to that of our Moonlight Afterglow serum), while hydrocarbon solvents seal in hydration while providing a transfer resistant dry down. Most of the shadows have a pearlescent sheen, without chunky glitter or too much sparkle and shine. Shades can be built up to emphasize their sheen/reflect, or diffused out for a more mono-chromatic wash of colour.
