Flower Beauty Cosmetics Review

With Spring around the corner, I thought it would be a perfect time to review Drew Barrymore's cosmetics line called Flower Beauty. The philosophy of Flower Beauty is that "You no longer have to spend a lot of money to get quality cosmetics you want and deserve". This line consists of everything from face foundations and concealers to eye shadows, lip and cheek colors as well as nail polishes. As of right now, Flower products can only be purchased at most Wal-Mart locations and Wal-mart.com.

I was really excited to test out some products from Ms. Barrymore's cosmetics line. It took me forever to finally decide on what to purchase. I wanted to try a variety of products but I was hesitant to purchase any foundations, concealers, or powders as my face has been very sensitive lately. But after about 20 minutes of starring at the same items, I purchased the Zoom In Ultimate Mascara in Intense Black, Sheer Up Lip Tint in Dewy Rose, Nail'd It in Eye of the Tiger Lily, and Lip Suede Velvet Up Chubbies in Life's a Peach and Coral Floral.

Zoom In Ultimate Mascara in Intense Black, $7.98
Basically the wand on this mascara intrigued me enough to add it first to my cart.  It has three wand shapes in one.  With a twist of the top, you can go from a straight wand to a spiral wand to an even tighter spiral. The purpose of the three wands is to give the options for length and/or volume. 

Zoom In Ultimate Mascara has kicked all my other mascaras' behinds including any high end mascaras that I have been using.  The mascara formula is great. It's not waterproof but it doesn't run and make me have raccoon eyes by the end of the day.  And the wand to amazing! Using all three wand types really give you both length and volume.  

I highly suggest you try this mascara out.  And for my Benefit beauty lovers, Zoom In Ultimate Mascara is definitely a dupe for They're Real. 

Sheer Up Lip Tint in Dewy Rose, $7.98
Lip Suede Velvet Up Chubby in Life's a Peach & Coral Floral, $7.98
Just like other brands, Flower Beauty has created their versions on lip chubbies or lip markers. They have three different styles. One style offers a sheer tint, one is a matte finish, and the other is for both lip and cheeks, which I decided not to purchase.

The Sheer Up Lip Tint in Dewy Rose offers a light red tint to the lips.  I do like the color of this tint. It's a basic red but it's nice because it doesn't offer a huge pop of color.  It's great for just bringing some color back into your lips. 

The Lip Suede Velvet Up Chubbies offer a matte finish which I prefer when it comes to lip products.  The two colors I decided to purchase where Life's a Peach which gives an orange tint and Coral Floral which is a very pale pink fleshy color. I do like these a little better than the Sheer Up Lip Tint. The colors are great and very fitting for spring. 

Honestly, I have never been a huge lip chubby fan so I don't have many other options to compare these too. I do like the colors when I initially apply it but the lasting power isn't phenomenal. I'm still kind of on the fence about these.

Nail'd It in Eye of the Tiger Lily, $4.98
I didn't really have high expectations when ordering this nail polish.  I figured it would be very sheer and it was.  Two coats will get you some color but unfortunately three coats made it too tacky to dry clean.  With a base and top coat it didn't chip any easier than popular brands. I think I'm gonna try other colors before I really say "yes" or "no" to the Flower Beauty nail polish.  

All in all, Flower Beauty is a great line for the price. I definitely recommend trying out some of the products that are available especially the Zoom In Ultimate Mascara.  You can view all the products on the Flower Beauty website at http://www.flowerbeauty.com.
