January of this year Drew Barrymore Launched Flower Beauty exclusively in sold in Walmart stores. The Philosophy behind this beauty line was high end product for a low cost. I had to see if these products lived up to this! If true, it would make all my dreams come true.
I finally got my hands on a few of her products a few days ago. The website shows a vast array of products from skincare, foundations, primers, blushes and more. I was disappointed when both the Walmart nears me had a VERY small selection of the line. Mostly mascara, eyeliner, lip products and nail polish. Nothing like the picture above.
I chose to purchase the eyeliner, mascara and a nail polish. I wear eyeliner all the time. I really feel it makes your eyes just pop! But you can’t war eyeliner without mascara. That’s like the fries without the ketchup. You need it!!
1. Flower Nail Polish in Fanatical Botanical
MSRP – $4.98
2. Extreme Measures Lengthening Mascara in Extreme Black
MSRP – $6.98
3. On Your Mark Liquid Eyeliner in Black
I have to first admit I’m not a nail polish fanatic like most woman. I rarely have time to sit and properly brush on nail polish and wait for it to dry. So I wear it on special occasions. Please excuse the ‘much needed manicure’ nails. Anyways, the nail polish was nice. Nothing quite spectacular about it that made it different or stand out. I did have to apply 3 coats just to cover my nails. The price is alright and it comes in a variety of colors.
Now this eyeliner is said to be smudge-proof and boy was it. That was the best thing about this eyeliner. It did not budge! The tip of the pen was quite long and soft. I usually like a harder pen or applicator, but it worked fine. I had to apply it a few times to get it to the shade I like. It comes on wet, so if you make any mistakes, fix them before it dries. Overall I liked the eyeliner. It came on pretty easily and I would purchase it again.
Let’s get to this mascara! It was awful and nothing I would hoped for. I like my mascara thick, but not Tammy Faye Baker thick! I had to use about 5 coats to get to the look that I like. The mascara is made with red seaweed and shiny polymers to add shine. It was glossy on the eyelashes but that’s about it. I wouldn’t recommend this mascara. I’ll stick to my Voluminous by Loreal.
