Phytosurgence Wild Oak is a very warm-toned, light brown with a pearl finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $17.07 and contains 0.14 oz.
Phytosurgence Wild Oak Flash Florescence Cream Shadow ($17.07 for 0.14 oz.) is a rich, golden bronze with strong, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It was one of the more high-shine shades in the range, but it wasn't metallic. It looked very "melted" when applied and blended out on my skin.
The texture was lightweight, creamy enough to feel like a cream eyeshadow, but it was thin and more powder-like as I worked with it on my skin. The product dried down to a more transfer-resistant, powder-like finish within 15 to 20 seconds. It had opaque coverage that wore well for eight and a half hours before creasing faintly.
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.
