The other night I was flipping through my Glamour magazine and came across a few beauty picks available at Walmart. I frequently get requests for tutorials using more affordable makeup, so I’m always on the hunt for good makeup that’s easy on the pocket book! One thing in particular caught my eye on the page, though: A beautiful blush/nude lipstick by the name of Flower. I started doing some research on the brand and discovered it’s Drew Barrymore’s makeup line! Already I loved it. So the next morning I drove out to Walmart to get my Flower fix!
Here’s what I picked up:
Skincognito Stick Foundation in SF5
Color Play Creme Eyeshadow in Awesome Blossom
Long Wear Eyeliner in Black
Kiss Stick Velvet Lip Color in Petal Kiss
Sheer Up Lip Tint in LC1 (Bare Blush)
Using everything but the Sheer Up Lip Tint, I created this soft spring look. I have to say I’m very impressed with the Skincognito Stick Foundation: It’s got a nice medium coverage to it, but it goes on so smoothly and doesn’t feel heavy at all. Usually stick foundations tend to be either too creamy or too heavy, but this one is just perfect! I might even pick up a lighter shade and a darker shade for highlight and contouring, I’m simply obsessed with this foundation!
After trying the Kiss Stick Velvet Lip Color, I’m convinced I have to get every color! I ended up getting Petal Kiss, which is exactly that gorgeous color I saw in the magazine; it’s got a velvety matte finish, but my lips stayed soft and hydrated all day long. I had a tough time deciding whether to wear the lipstick or the lip tint, because the lip tint is beyond beautiful. It’s got a slightly glossy finish, and the Bare Blush color is the absolute perfect shade of pink for youthful lips! It’s just the right lip product for everyday use.
Here’s the best thing about Flower: No animal testing! It’s really tough to find an affordable line of makeup that’s both good in quality and ethics… Brava, Drew Barrymore!
