Flower Beauty has a few concealers I’ve wanted to try especially at these great prices. One of those is the Flower Secret Service Cover-Up available in four shades it promises a lightweight vitamin rich formula plus the incredible under $8 price tag makes it quite appealing.
Did it work?
Flower has been a hit with me so far. I’m surprised. I didn’t know what to expect from this collection and yes, I had my doubts that any makeup line available at Walmart might be uneventful (I’m being nice there!). But it actually has some impressive offerings and thus far I’ve been quite happy with what I’ve tried.
Unfortunately Flower Secret Service Cover-Up Concealer happens to be a miss for me. This doesn’t mean it won’t work for you as the formula isn’t all bad. It just isn’t a formula I personally like.
This comes in four shades and I ended up purchasing the darkest as the colors appeared to run a bit lighter. And so far my experience with Flower’s base products had me choosing the darker shade since many of their offerings are either too pale or too yellow. This I went with the darker shade here. Unfortunately, it isn’t a good color for me however, it didn’t prevent me from testing it none the less.
This comes in a simple lipgloss packaging with sponge tip applicator for application. The formula is a thinner emollient concealer that blends out easily and offers sheerer coverage. The formula applies very easily without a hiccup and it doesn’t crease into finer liners through the wear. I didn’t love the texture as it has a dewier dry down which fades after an hour or two of wear and offers very little coverage for my darker circles, fine lines, and puffiness.
I personally need more coverage with a formula that’s longer lasting. I do think Secret Service is a good starting concealer for a younger girl who doesn’t have need for heavier under eye coverage or one who needs a concealer for basic spot coverage. This has a moisturizing, easy to apply formula however, the shorter wear and lack of coverage killed it for me.
Can’t always have hits I guess!
Anyone try it?
