I was shopping at Walmart today and happened to walk by the beauty section….ok, no, I practically went to Walmart to buy dish soap and makeup!
I wanted to get a few things I needed; a hightlighter or maybe a concealer because we all know that sometimes drugstore makeup can be just as good as beauty store makeup and I wanted to try some new items out.
Then it hit me, the beautiful face of Drew Barrymore promoting her makeup line, Flower Beauty, and I decided that I wanted to try it for myself. I bought items that I would use in an everyday makeup look to see how well they would compare to the current products I have.
If you are not familar with this line, Flower Beauty is owned by actress Drew Barrymore, they aim to provide quality makeup without high prices (the most expensive item I bought was $14.95). For more info you can visit their website (Drew Barrymore even does her own tutorials of different makeup looks there – it’s really cute!)
What I Purchased and First Impressions
Ultimate Powder Brush and Ultimate Eyeshadow Brush
These brushes are made with man-made hairs but they are extremely soft and nicely dense.
About Face Foundation in LF1, Powder Up Loose Powder in L01, Lighten Up Brightening Concealer in BC1
At first swatch these products feel super nice and creamy, the colours match my skin tone well.
Eye 2 Eye Eye Marker & Volumizing Mascara in Intense Black, Shadow Play Quad in Smoke and Mirrors, Colour Play Eyeshadow in Good as Mari-gold, Glisten Up Highlighter Chubby in Gold Coaster, Kiss Me Twice Lip & Cheek Chubby in Apricot-a-lot
I like warm colours so I chose golds and peachy tones. The highlighter is light but super buildable and the texture is really nice and shimmery. My favorite thing so far in this line is the cream eyeshadow because it really feels like whipped butter and colour payoff is amazing. My first swatch of the quad was a bit disappointing, I was hoping for more pigmentation, we will see how it works on my eyes. The masacara and eyeliner dou is a cute concept, I may end up taking it to work 🙂
I will wear only this line for the next few days and do a blog post on my thoughts of its wearability.
