[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] Well, this is the collection I’ve been looking forward to seeing the most of all the summer new drops so be prepared for a picture heavy post. I think the Flower Power collection owes much to Takashi Murakami inspiration wise – those plentiful, joyful and ditzy dots of neon in 3D flower form are mini artworks. It’s also somehow reminding me of Murano glass if you can picture paperweights with flowers at the bottom, enhanced by the curve of the glass and the depth of the placement. Either way I am all over this – I love it.
The star of the collection is the Blur Powder that gives an optical blur with weightless powder but it’s almost completely sold out – I managed to find some at Space NK in Medium/Deep which is the one shown and also Light/Medium. Medium Deep is suitable for sun-kissed skin or deeper tones although because the texture is so fine and the colour deposit so light, it’s workable I think across the board other than the very palest.
As you might expect, it comes with a premium price tag – £79 – but obviously selling like hot cakes. I’m linking to SpaceNK HERE because at the time of writing they have 20% off a £100 spend which is easily done with this collection.
This is such a sweet little blush with the same 3D flower effect on the packaging. It’s in a light hit rosy coral that enlivens the complexion immediately and tends to suits all tones. It’s £47 HERE. There’s a pearl element which gives a sheeny effect for luminosity.
There’s also a buffing brush that comes in a shiny neon fabric bag but I’ve yet to find it on any site – it might be a question of asking in stores.
The lipstick that joins the Blur Powder and Blush is called Capucine and is the most vibrant orange shade. It’s a very balmy formula that leaves a sheen on the lips which is very impactful when you go as bright as this. Annoyingly, it seems to have sold out everywhere – but – there is a similar shade, Amarylis, in the same Lip Chic formula HERE (£33) but not in orange casing.

Obviously, the palettes are going straight into my keep collection. I don’t remember seeing anything quite like this before and find it absolutely charming – positive, fun and beautiful.

If I could get my hands on this, I’d buy it. But I’m in Greece all summer. After the endless sorrows of COVID, I need more things in my makeup table to cheer me up.
Yes, it’s a very cheerful collection!
