BEAUTY: Flower Beauty ‘Light Illusion’ Foundation.


Flower Beauty is a recent release to the Australian consumer market, and has been rapidly expanding overseas after being relatively successful in the US. Flower Beauty is also founded by fabulous actress and personal girl crush of mine, Drew Barrymore.

Ms Barrymore has created a makeup line focused people everywhere having access to high-quality cosmetics at an affordable price point. I love her ethos and enjoy the overall feel of the brand. I also appreciate any brand that doesn’t ludicrously increase pricing in Australia, which Flower Beauty have not done, so big old thumbs up from me regarding that.

The brand is also US owned and made, which should be celebrated by the US consumer especially as it is a fantastic way to stimulate the national economy and helps keep jobs based on shore.

Flower Beauty is exclusively available in Chemist Warehouse in Australia and is quickly expanding globally currently, with a really fantastic link in their website to find the closest stockist making access to the brand even easier.


Price: 13.99AUD

Availability: Chemist Warehouse, Ulta Beauty, Superdrug,

Shade Range: 12

SPF: 18.

Claims: ‘Light Illusion is a breakthrough foundation that achieves the impossible; provides you with medium to buildable coverage to smooth and perfect, while imparting your skin with the most flattering soft luminosity imaginable. All with a weightless, nude skin feel. Imperfections and uneven skin tone are diminished. Only a flawless, smooth, and incredibly natural complexion is revealed.’


The foundation looked really beautiful on my skin and lasted well throughout a full day of work, and did not need to powder (I have normal/dehydrated skin).

The shade I have is yellow, like The Simpsons yellow. It’s incredibly unflattering on my skin tone, and I have to either spread my concealer far enough to avoid it looking ridiculous, also have been mixing in other foundations to prevent it from being too stark on my face.

I liked the look of the foundation, and really enjoyed how buildable the coverage was whilst not apperaing heavy or masked on the skin. It also mixed well with illuminating drops without separating.


  • Affordable.
  • Becoming more widely available internationally.
  • SPF 18 (Sun protection).
  • Satin Matte finish.
  • Light – Meidum coverage.
  • Buildable coverage.


  • Limited shade range.
  • SPF 18 (potential flashback in photography).
  • Probably too natural looking for someone who loves full coverage.


I was really impressed with this foundation after a couple of times wearing it and found that it lasted nicely, whilst appearing natural on the skin with enough coverage to cover minimal skin concerns.

I think the price point for this is amazing, and love that the brand is becoming more accessible world wide meaning that more people have access to an affordable brand that seems to have a strong focus on making enjoyable cosmetics.

It’s a nice everyday foundation, it’s not what I would wear to a special occasion but was more than nice enough to wear on an everyday basis.
