According to Three Custom Colors website "Wallflower, a dewy, shimmering beige, is the fifth shade in our popular Watercolours for Cheeks collection. Just a dab defines and illuminates the cheeks for an alluring better-than-bare look.The shade flatters all skin tones and perfectly complements fall’s dramatic smokey eye. Great on the lips, too!"

Unfortunately the color did not show up on my cheeks at all. All I got was a small hint of shine/ shimmer which I would have loved if I didn't have to squint my eyes to see . They are aiming towards a better-than-bare look, but on me its remains bare :( The color I think is perfectly suited for super light skin. So if you have the beautiful porcelain complexion , say hello to your new best friend.As for me, too bad coz I was very excited about this product. It looks very dark in the pan but comes out super super sheer on the skin. The texture of the product is beautiful and it spreads like a dream. No tugging at your skin here. You know, I am totally doing the dark lip this fall and if wallflower did everything it was suppose to....I could have rocked !

That being said...it works great on my lips! When I do up the eyes or cheeks I use this on my lips to make them even and perfectly nude. I hate the glossy gooey gooey nude with some looks...and that's when Wallflower enters the scene and plays its part well ! It also acts great as a blush base. Seriously, my blush lasted the whole day with Wallflower under it. So that's it girls, find a way to work it !!

Wallflower can be purchased on their website .

I have been dying to try one of these. I wonder how they compare with the MAC cream color bases! Do you think you can post a photo of how this looked on you?

Hey Nosh !
Sure thing. I'll have some swatches up soon. They are great as bases coz they don't turn oily on me. The other colors are a coral, pink and purple...
