Phytosurgence Potent Petal is a very warm-toned, medium-dark peach with a pearl finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $17.07 and contains 0.14 oz.
Phytosurgence Potent Petal Flash Florescence Cream Shadow ($17.07 for 0.14 oz.) is a peachy copper with strong, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had rich color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with ease. The coverage was more opaque when applied with a fingertip, but it could be diffused and blended out for more of a wash of color if desired.
It dried down to a more powder-like finish that was fairly transfer-resistant after 15 to 20 seconds. It wore nicely for eight and a half hours before creasing slightly.
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.
