Phytosurgence Oxidized Olive is a moderately warm-toned, light-medium taupe with a pearl finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $17.07 and contains 0.14 oz.
Phytosurgence Oxidized Olive Flash Florescence Cream Shadow ($17.07 for 0.14 oz.) is a light-medium, taupe-brown with warmer undertones and a smooth, pearly sheen. It was richly pigmented when applied with a fingertip and sheerer when applied with a brush, though it could be sheered out with a fingertip or built up with a brush as desired. The texture was smooth, dense without being too firm, and creamy enough to blend out without difficulty but still set quickly. It wore well for 10 hours on me before showing signs of fading.
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.
