Flower Color Proof Long-wear Lip Cremes

Flower Color Proof Long-Wear Lip Creme ($7.98) are a new creamy lip color with a satin finish that launched for Spring 2016 in five shade selections. These caught my eye because they seemed like a nice break from the matte liquid lipsticks we keep seeing every single brand launch. I’m not really all that into satins but creamy, pigmented satins sounded like a refreshing switch up from all the matte.

Let’s take a look!

Flower Color Proof Long-wear Lip Creme

Flower Color Proof Long-Wear Lip Creme (0.42 oz) come housed in a squeeze tube with an attached slanted sponge applicator for application. Many of the newer Flower launches come in slick, black packaging, but these come in the standard white Flower packaging with Flower’s rosegold emblem decorating the front. You have to squeeze the tube to get the product flowing into the applicator. I’ve only had these a week, but it seems the product has a knack for separating so a shake up is necessary less you end up with an oily separated mess of lip color.

I find the formula more matte than satin with a thick, dry creamier consistency which applies easily enough but ends up looking very old, tired, and dry on my lips. Both shades I tried provided excellent opaque color but, unfortunately, that falls rather badly into my natural lip lines and gives the color a very dry appearance. To me, overall, the formula felt like an old lipstick that I hadn’t used in a year or two that dried out. The wear time is very good at five hours but during that wear, my lips felt very dry. I will say that the color never migrated or feathered during the wear. I noticed no fragrance or flavor so sensitive users should be fine.

Flower Color Proof Long-wear Lip Creme are unfortunately a little too dry for this Muse. Although not matte, this formula has the consistency of one and tends to look very dry and tired on my already drier lips. I like the idea of these better than I did the actual formula sadly.

Dry lip or no these aren’t a formula many will like.

Flower Color Proof Long-wear Lip Creme are available now at Walmart and Walmart.com.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.
