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. 🙂

Thoughts: Wet & Wild Lipsticks from Centerstage Fergie Line

Good morning everyone! I have two new products that I want to share my thoughts about. They are two shades from the new Centerstage Fergie for Wet & Wild.

First things first, the names are absolutely adorable: Old School Glam and Fuchsianista! I may have partially picked those two shades just because of the names.

WetnWild Fergie Lipsticks

On a serious note, the colors are AMAZING! I’ve only had these colors for a day and I’m already in love. I wore Fuchsianista to work today and got tons of compliments.

Initial thoughts:

– Like the sleek packaging

– Love the range colors they have available

– Not a big fan of the lipstick peeking out of the package but I can live with that.

Old School Glam:

– Beautiful redish pinkish shade with a hint of orange

– Completely matte with a hint of gloss

Fuchsianista:

– Deep pink shade with blue pearlescent undertone

– Not matte, has a hint of shimmer

They both have:

– Amazing pigmentation

– Go on very smooth

– Pretty good staying power (Only reapplied once)

– Great price! (Less than $4)

I am completely in love with these lipsticks! Wet and Wild has done it again and I can’t wait to get a few more shades! Definitely recommend you all try these lipsticks!

For some reason, I can’t find any of these items online. Maybe they are way too new. They should be available at your local drugstore but make sure you check for special displays.

Have you tried any of the new Centerstage items?

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!

Blue Had Me At Hello!

Who doesn’t love a good eyeshadow palette for under $5?! I know that I do, and I have one that has absolutely beautiful colors. They may not be the most practical but they are great for a night out or for a dramatic look. Wet & Wild keeps on impressing me with amazing palettes that are not only a great deal but also very nicely pigmented!

One of my favorites is the Blue Had Me At Hello 8 color palette. There are 4 frosty colors, 3 with sparkle and one matte. It’s in the blue family with one white shade on the top left and one matte black on the bottom left. As you can tell from the swatch below, the colors are all extremely pigmented!

I used this for a Britney Spears “I’m a Slave for You” inspired makeup look for her Femme Fatale Concert last year. The colors looked amazing!

For this look, all I used was the Wet & Wild Palette!

I know that sometimes there is a misconception with cheaper makeup but Wet & Wild is truly an exemption and the pictures above say it all!

Have any of you used this palette before? Any other favorite Wet & Wild palettes that you think I should try?
