Flower Beauty- Skincognito Stick Foundation & BB Cream

Yesterday was Flower Beauty's Lip Service Lip Butter. Today it's the Stick Foundation and BB Cream

One of the exciting finds was that they have a stick foundation.  I love stick foundations and they can be hard to find.
One of my holy grail foundations used to be L'Oreal Quick Stick. Man, that was good and I stockpiled when they dc'd it. Of course in the intervening years I've found many more great foundations but not many sticks. And can I say how much I miss Max Factor's Pan Stick ? But I have a supply of that too.

There are a few out there , Tom Ford makes an amazing one, but at $ 78 it's not within easy reach . Bobbi Brown's is great and a bit better priced. 

As far as I know, though, there are no mass markets ones out there . Until now. 

Flower's stick foundation  offers medium buildable coverage. It has a  soft  feel on skin but is also feels emollientDue to the oil ingredients that make it emollient,  it unfortunately won't work for my skin.  Ingredients include corn , cottonseed and castor oils as well as shea butter. 
However, it is nice and if you have normal to dry skin then it might work for you. Sticks like these make great take alongs for easy touch ups in addition to all over use.

The BB Cream  is a nice  addition to the BB scene as it gives good coverage, something often missing in drugstore brands.  It covers flaws, evens tone and is lightly moisturizing but not heavy .   It is missing SPF but other than that  performs as well as some of my higher end brands.

 Bonus points too, for the  upmarket looking packaging on the BB
My shade is BB2 in the BB Cream( $ 12.98) , SF2 in the Foundation( $ 6.98).
