Flower is a new makeup collection from Drew Barrymore and is exclusive to Walmart. Wanna know their philosophy?
You no longer have to spend a lot of money to get the quality cosmetics you want and deserve.
How do we do it? We do not pay for advertising. Where other beauty brands spend a vast percentage of the cost of their products on ads, we do not. Drew, as an owner of the brand, takes pride in promoting Flower, which in turn allows us to put all of our resources into the formulas and packaging, and not into advertising.
Custom-formulated with the same ingredients used in luxury make-up, our exclusive botanical-infused Soft-Focus Complex illuminates for a lit-from-within effect.
All products are proudly made in the USA and are never tested on animals.
Pretty cool huh? I went to a couple Walmarts searching for this line and finally found a fully stocked display (at Martinez in case anyone in the Bay Area wants to know). I had a really hard time choosing what to get though. I wound up getting four of these lip shades, four of another kind, some nail polishes, some eye liners and some cream shadows. I’ll be reviewing everything soon!
Right now I have four of the Kiss Stick High-Shine Lip Colors to go over, and I think you are going to like what you see…
The tubes are kind of cool because they are different colors, depending on which finish of lip color you are getting. The High-Shine Lip Colors are in black tubes with rose gold accents. I like that the bottom of the Lip Colors are see-through, so you can see the actual product shade.
Aside from figuring out which ones to buy, the hardest part was finding ones that hadn’t been opened by those loathsome people who feel the need to open and destroy products in the store. Why does Walmart seem to have the worst of this problem?
These are pretty creamy and do feel nicely moisturizing (they contain emollient oils for moisture and shine). They have really nice pigmentation and no weird taste. There is a slight flowery scent that I detect, but it’s really mild.
Sweet Peony is a peachy pink.
Tulips 2 Kiss You! is a blue-based medium pink.
Rose Bud is a cool-toned bright red. Intense.
Petunia Petals is a bright warm fuchsia pink.
Overall: Well I am really glad I chose these shades because I love every single one. Not only are the shade options nice, they feel like higher end lipsticks. Pigmented, moisturizing, long-lasting and shiny. Good stuff!
Their website is kind of cool, here you can see Drew testing and swatching the products as they go through development.
Availability: Walmart and Walmart.com only.
Pricing: $6.98 for 0.12 oz.
Now I wanna know, have you tried anything from this brand yet? Interested in any of these?
Stay tuned for my swatches next of the Kiss Sticks Velvet Lip Colors.
Note: Flower is cruelty free.
