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. 🙂

June Favorites!

Happy July everyone! Another month has passed by and it’s getting so hot! Below are my June favorites. I didn’t have that many favorites this month but I really am enjoyed these items this month! Hope you are all ready for the 4th of July celebrations!

1. Maybelline Line Stiletto Liquid Eyeliner

Lately I’ve been really trying to do minimal makeup and haven’t wanted to wear my gel liner so I have giver this liquid eyeliner a try. Although it is not my favorite, it has come in handy when I am in a hurry. The formula is not that great and you really have to apply it multiple times to get a good black. However, it has been good to me in the speediness section!

2. NYX Eucalyptus

This month I have put my red lipstick away and busted out my pinks. When I first saw Eucalyptus, I was scared by all the shimmer it had but now I love it! It’s very loud but it is great for the summer!

3. Neon Target Vneck

I’ve always heard so many good things about these V-Necks but I never bought them because I found them at forever 21 for a lot less. Now I know why these are better! Main reason is that when I wash this shirt, it maintains the shape and length. This is always a problem for me with Forever 21 t-shirts because it always feels like they either got short or wide.

4. Coach wristlet

I got this cute wristlet from a coworker as a gift and I’ve loved it lately to carry all my essentials. It’s great because I can just transfer it from bag to bag or just run out with it and not have to worry about carrying a huge bag.

What are some of your favorites this month?
