A while back I picked up a couple more items from Flower Beauty. (Read my initial thoughts on this line here.) I got a lip product this time: Sheer Up Lip Tint in “Lacy Laurel.”
This particular shade is pretty close to my natural lip colour, so I find myself reaching for it whenever I want a bit of “barely there” colour. As the name implies, it is VERY sheer. There are some brighter, bolder looking shades in this line that probably have more colour payoff. My only real gripe about this product is that it could be a little more moisturizing. It has a slight waxiness to it that can feel a bit drying at times. If you’re starting with well-hydrated lips, then it probably won’t be a problem for you, but if your lips are at all dry or chapped, it could cause a bit of discomfort. Sometimes I layer it over a plain lip balm if I need a moisture boost. Overall, it’s decent quality for the price, and I would consider trying other shades in the future.
I got a text from my sister the other day informing me that our Walmart now carries Flower Beauty products. Flower is Drew Barrymore’s brainchild and boasts that its products offer the same quality as high-end brands, but at Walmart prices. How do they keep the cost down? Apparently by using Drew to promote the brand, they don’t have to pay astronomical sums for advertising. You can check this out for yourself on the company’s website.
New drugstore lines don’t come around very often, so I had to check this out. I made the half hour trek to Walmart and was blown away when I got there. This line is huge! I wasn’t expecting so many different products. It’s going to take me some time to fully explore the brand, but for now, I can offer some thoughts on the haul pictured above.
I treated myself to an eyeshadow quad, a couple of cream shadows, a mascara, a concealer and a powder brush. All of these items were priced around $8-$10 with the exception of the brush, which was about $13. So do the products deliver? Read on…
