Thoughts: Drew Barrymore’s Flower Line

  Good evening everyone! Happy Saturday. Just like many of you, I have been itching to try Drew Barrymore’s Flower makeup line for Walmart. After checking two Walmarts, I finally got my hands on three items from her line. Let me tell you though, I had to really search because the display was so miniscule, I could barely tell it was the Flower line.

The three items I purchased are:

Nail Polish in Gorgeous Gerbera $4.98

This adorable pink/peach shade is very pigmented and perfect for the spring.

Love:

–        The packaging is very slick

–        Great Color Selection (16 shades)

Dislike:
– The cap is a little big so it makes it a little hard to control during application

– Formula itself felt a little thick causing it to take a little too long to dry

Kiss Stick Luxury Lip Color in Get to the Poinsettia ($6.98)

Me in Lipstick

Now this what the item I was most excited about. The color is absolutely incredible! It’s a redish orange with blue undertones, which makes my teeth look really white! When I first tried on the color, I was amazed, then I tried for a full day…. Reapplied it 5 times! The lipstick seriously resembles MAC with its texture but lacks in the longevity department. Now, I’m not saying I hate it but I definitely wish it lasted longer. However, I love the color so much that I’d reapply it as many times as needed. I will probably try a few more colors from this line.

Love:

–        Packaging (Love the rose and white combo)

–        Shades

–        Pigmentation

Dislike:

–        Staying power

 Lipstick and Eyeliner

On your Mark Liquid Eyeliner in Brown ($6.98)
This is probably the most disappointing product. The liner just isn’t very pigmented. However, the packaging and felt tip applicator is actually really nice! Maybe I got a bad one or should try the black shade.

All in all, I really like the sleek packaging but I definitely think the formula of the specific items I tried need a little tweaking. Now, I haven’t tried other products from the line but I’m definitely looking forward to picking up the mascara and BB cream.

Hope this was helpful! Have you guys tried this line or plan on it? Let me know your thoughts. 🙂

Nail of the Week!

This weeks nails feature a beautiful shade of blue from Sinful Colors called Rain Storm.

 

Most impressive part of this polish is that I only used ONE coat!

I used the OPI top coat so hopefully the lasting power will be as good as it was with the Essie polish.

Please let me know in the comments below if you guys want to see another update about this specific nail polish.

Have a great day!

 

 

UPDATE: Essie Nail Polish

Good evening everyone! First and foremost, I want to thank those who commented on my Essie nail polish post about its longevity. I had a friend who was having some trouble with Essie nail polishes and wanted to know if anyone else was having the same issue.

I wanted to let you guys know how my experience was going with my first ever Essie nail polish in the color Raise Awareness. The color is absolutely beautiful!

Below is a picture of what my nails look like after 8 days with the Essie polish.

The most surprising part about this self manicure is how long it lasted without chipping! It always feels like that’s the first thing that goes wrong.

For this complete at home manicure I used:

Sally Hansen Hard as Nail Hardener as my base coat ($2.89)

Essie’s Raise Awareness ($3.99 TJ Maxx)

OPI Top Coat ($8)

I will mention that everyone has different experiences with nail polish but this is what worked for me! Please let me know in the comments section what has worked for you!

New Handbag!

Happy Sunday everyone! A while back I fell in love with this beautiful and unique handbag at Ross. The amazing colors and size sold me so I purchased it at $34.95. The price is a little high for Ross but I knew that this would be a piece that I will have for a LONG time.

The handbag is from a website called Big Buddha and they have a ton of cute bags! I’ve also seen this brand at TJ Maxx! As you can tell from the picture above, the purse is absolutely beautiful! I love using it as a pop of color on with any outfit! My favorite part about it are the straps. The shorter strap is the perfect length because I can wear it on my arm or shoulder. Now it also has a detachable long strap that serves as a cross-body.

At first I was deceived by the white strap in the front because I thought you had to loosen it every time to open the bag but you don’t. Instead, there is a magnetic closure under the soft pink flap.

Again, I love this bag and have been wearing it very often! As mentioned before, I found it at Ross so you may be able to spot at your local store! If you find it, please let me know what you think 🙂

Also, check out the brands website for more cute handbags!

Nail of the Week!

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and an ever better start of a new week!

Here is my current nail polish from Sinful Colors called Rise and Shine. This is an absolutely beautiful turquoise color with some tiny hints of shimmer that are barely visible until the sun hits it!

Great thing about these nail polishes is that they have a very large color selection and a BEAUTIFUL price at only $1.99 per polish. If you’re lucky, you can even catch them for less than $1 on sale!

Hope you all enjoyed this post! Let me know if you try this color or have any other Sinful Colors favorites!
