I really like the labels that encase the lipstick itself. It's something extra to the packaging that most lipsticks don't have today. The slips can be removed. The shade names are also clearly labeled on the bottom.
This is what the lipstick case looks like once the slip is removed. The matte black casing is so sleek. It really catches my eye! I don't have any lipsticks with casing that looks like this.
The lipsticks are true to the stick itself. The bottom swatch is Tuscany Rose and the top is Claret Rose. Online, Tuscany Rose looked more pink. As you can see, they are both very similar. I was a bit unsatisfied with the misleading swatch online, but they are both pretty colors none the less.
Claret Rose is described as a cool medium tone reddish rose. I would say that is a spot on description. Tuscany Rose is described as a cool deep wine with a hint of purple. I would say it is more of a warm toned brownish red. I didn't see any hints of purple, and the swatch on the site makes this lipstick look like a dusty pink.
Claims: "A lipstick that thinks it's a lip balm. The cleanest, safest, prettiest lipstick for those who love lipstick. A simple healthy formula of vegetable waxes, oils, and mineral pigments that go on creamy and don't feather. Like a lip balm, Ecco Bella FlowerColor lipsticks moisturize without flaking or chapping."

Pigmentation: The pigmentation is excellent. They are opaque within one swipe.
Finish/Texture: The finish is creamy, and also a bit glossy. The gloss is very subtle, but it doesn't wear off. The texture is silky smooth, the formula is so buttery! I really enjoyed how comfortable this lipstick felt on the lips, it's weightless.
Lasting Power: I had about four hours of wear with these. They are very hydrating, and I was surprised that they actually wore as long as they did. They do stain the lips a bit once the color has worn off, but is an easy fix with some makeup remover.
Scent: These are not perfumed, but they do have a slight lipsticky scent. Kind of the way that little girls' Barbie makeup smells like. I know that's an odd thing to say, but it really does!
Packaging: The packaging is sleek and sturdy. The lid stays on securely, and something about the matte black casing that I love!

The Flower Color Lipsticks are the best organic lipsticks I have tried. Even thought they are a bit expensive, the quality is certainly there. Everything about these from the packaging, to the formula is luxurious and of high-end quality. My favorite thing about these is that they feel weightless, and glide on smoothly. The finish is creamy and has a pretty shine, and leaves you lips feeling moisturized. The wear time was good considering how buttery they are. I didn't experience any slipping or feathering at all, which was also a pleasant surprise!
If you're looking for a great quality organic lipstick, or just wanting to try something new, Flower Color would be an excellent choice. I really enjoyed everything about these lipsticks, and I can't wait to try more colors in the future!
