Review: This is one of Flower Beauty's new releases this fall. When I saw the packaging, it reminded me of the Maybelline Dream Mousse foundation where the product had a similar texture to a hair mousse. This did not come in a box but it did have a shrink wrap seal. The container is a lavender colored tin bottle with nude gold typography. It has a pump to dispense the product; however, that is my first con about this item. The pump is not soft or easily pressed. This means, the product is harder to control so most of the time you will have a big clump that is way too much for what you need. If you are not careful, you will be wasting a lot of product. The consistency is similar to a hair mousse - airy, light and fluffy. It is easy to blend and apply on the skin. If you look carefully on the swatch photo below, you will see a light gold/pearlescent residue from the primer. These are light reflecting pearls that allow the skin to have a radiant look. It is not glitter. I love this product and it looks nice on the skin. It leaves my skin feeling hydrated and radiant. However, you really have to be careful on how much you use because of the pump. Once you use the right amount and massage it on to your skin, it is beautiful. It is like a cloud-like version of the Becca Backlight Primer. I actually prefer this because it is much thinner, not as tacky. I wish flower beauty would fix the pump so it is easy to control how much to use instead of getting huge globs.
