Review: Flower Knows Rococo Cat 花知晓猫猫舞会四色眼影

Flower Knows is a makeup line created by 2 popular cosplayer Hana & Baozi. I first got to know Hana & Baozi as they make regular appearance for our annual Anime Festival Asia (AFA). I came across the post on AFA Facebook page that they are selling their makeup line during AFA 2018 and I was rather intrigued to check out their collection.

Thanks to my sister who has a Taobao account, I bought a few of their collection and I am sharing on my thoughts on 1 of the items I bought. Do look out for a few more post in the coming week for more products from them.

This was 1 of my choice because come on, the packaging is so darn cute. Kitties in aristocrats outfit. :) The one I bought was Katherine and Anthony. I had wanted to get all 4 colors but my sister stopped me and knocked some sense into me that I should get 1 or 2 to try before getting more.

The reason why I choose Anthony as this colors were more pink shades. it has a mix of matte and shimmer eyeshadow – so you are more or less covered.

I would usually apply the top left pink shimmer eyeshadow up to the crease of my eyelid, then I would use the matte orange (bottom right) at the end of my eye to create a more “smokey” look. Then I would do a black winged eyeliner to make my eyes more 3D. and my double eyelid is created.

These are the color swatches against my skin tone.

What I like about the product

  1. Packaging is pretty adorable.
  2. For a price of 75yuan (~SGD$15), you get a choice of 2 shimmer and 2 matte complimentary colors. it is really helpful especially for amateurs makeup user.
  3. It is pretty compact and flat so it makes it more convenient to travel with.

What I dislike about this product

  1. The color transfer from my brush to my eyes is pretty meh. Especially for the matte colors – it takes at least 3 application for the color to show. (you can see from the swatch above.)
  2. The fall out is quite bad, after dipping my brush in it a few times, my vanity is quite a mess.
  3. The shimmer shadow is really pretty but the shimmer is pretty chunky and you need to be careful not to apply too much onto the brush. I tried it last week and I had a hard time blending the shimmer across my eyelid.
  4. The packaging is cute but feels like thick cardboard – which makes it pretty cheap. If you are intending to bring it overseas, I would recommend to put it in a ziplock bag as I feel it will disintegrate if it is caught in the rain.
  5. there is no brush provided so you will need to use your fingers for application or have your own eye-shadow brush.

Overall, I do not really recommend this product because I do not think the application is easy as it is harder to blend out. The color payout and pigmentation is really lacking. however, if you are a fan of Hana & Baozi and want to support them, it is still a memorabilia to collect as the packaging is pretty nice.
