Review: Flower Cosmetics 'Foxy Browns' Eyeshadow Quad

Greetings from the Dark Side!~

Here is the climactic end to the Flower Cosmetics quad reviews. If you read the reviews for the 'Blue Lagoons' and 'Smoke and Mirrors' quads, you know that I really disliked both of them. Will 'Foxy Browns' be better? Or, will is be equally as terrible? Read more to find out ^_~

  Eyeshadow Quad in 'Foxy Browns'
  Flower Cosmetics
 $9.98 exclusively at Walmart
 The eyeshadows come in a sleek and cute compact that has magnetic closure. The compact is white and has a flower-esque shape. 
  The quad includes: a shimmery pale pink, a shimmery golden brown, a shimmery taupe-brown, and a dark satin cocoa brown.
 The pink and tupe-brown are very shimmery, almost frosty. The golden brown has is shimmery but not as shimmery as the two above. The dark brown has a semi-matte texture and finish.
 The pigmentation is pretty good, much better than of the 'Blue Lagoons' and 'Smoke and Mirrors' quads.
 Overall, the application was pretty good. The two shimmery shades (pink and taupe-brown) have considerable fallout.
Wear (comfort):
 The eyeshadows, although shimmery, have a matte-like texture and they feel like matte shadows on my eye lids. They feel just a tad dry and powdery.
Wear (time):
  These wore so much better than the other two quads!
Dupes? Similar products?:


I honestly do not have much to say about this besides that it was not as terrible as the other two quads. The quality was slightly better, but not outstanding either. I wouldn't wholly dismiss this palette because it could be good for someone who wants something simple. But, I also think that there are many other great simple palettes out there that are better.

My main issue with this is that two of the colors have a lot of fallout, a trend that I have noticed amongst all the other quads. I hate that they have SO much fallout. It is not even just a little bit of fallout, it is like a freaking blizzard of eyeshadow particles. It is really irritating.

Out of the three Flower Cosmetics eyeshadow quads I tried, this is definitely the best. The pigmentation is a lot better and the application is a lot easier. Two of the colors though have terrible fallout and, personally, that cannot be overlooked. If you were to pick up one of these quads, I would suggest the 'Foxy Browns' because it is so foxxxxxy~ Well, at least the colors don't dissapear from your eyes in seconds like the other two quads or that the colors turn to completely other colors once applied!

Rating: 6.5/10


  1. I've heard a lot of ppl saying the quads are rly bad. That sucks :(

  2. Thanks for reviewing the product, I now know to stay away from it :)

  3. I like these colors but I also hate the fallout:/

  4. Never tried Flower Cosmetics 'Foxy Browns' Eyeshadow Quad but I would love to use if I will have a chance. <3

  5. The pink shade looks gorgeous for an everyday makeup :)

  6. awww i really hate seeing these posts because they make me depressed :( I was REALLY hoping for good things on this line! :/

  7. It's a shame none of these quads worked. I feel less dissapointed we don't get them in the uk now though.

  8. i knew that this quad will be slightly better! but again it does not worth the money!

  9. I was also hoping that this one would be the one that worked well because I loved the colors so much, maybe I'll save my money and buy a few of the wet and wild palettes instead.
