From my understanding its a multiplicative effect,

flare blitz + life orb= 156 power
flare blitz + sheer force = 156 power
flare blitz + life orb + sheer force = 202.8 with 0 recoil.
(assuming darmanitan)
flare blitz+ life orb + sheer force + STAB = 304.2 power

So you one shot against anything that doesn't resist it, or doesn't prevent it.
