31 Jan FRIDAY FAVE: FLOWER Beauty Makeup by Drew Barrymore
If you love pretty packaging, high-pigment, longer-lasting, natural looking makeup – and are a fan of Drew Barrymore – then today’s Friday Fave will knock your socks off. Heck, even if you’re not a Drew Barrymore fan (Sarah I’m talking to you), her beauty makeup line FLOWER, just might win you over. Admittedly I have not tried every product in this collection. There are some products I just will not stray from, (Laura Mercier Secret Concealer I’ll love you till the day I die) but the ones I have tried from FLOWER I love. Many of these products are Oil-free, Paraben-free, Talc Free, D5 Free, and Fragrance Free – AND are infused with herbs like Ginko Biloba, and Vitamins C & E. The only down side – FLOWER is exclusive to Walmart. For me personally, this isn’t ideal or super convenient. Drew’s reason for this – “she wanted to develop a makeup line that delivered on its promise of bringing premium quality make-up to the masses”. And I suppose you can’t get more mass than 1,500 stores and walmart.com. As an owner of the brand, Barrymore takes pride in promoting FLOWER, which in turn allows the company to put all of its money into the formulations and packaging, and not into advertising. This saved revenue allows FLOWER to spend two to three times more on formulation and packaging than the average mass market brand, resulting in premium makeup of the highest quality at a price women can afford, ushering in a new era of cosmetics. The portfolio consists of more than 190 eye, face, lip and nail products ranging from $4.98 to $13.98, and I’ve listed my FLOWER faves below in case you want to indulge. One more note – FLOWER is not in every Walmart. Be sure to plug in your zipcode to see which store in your area is carrying it. And then you may have to road-trip it like I did for the Sheer Up and Lash Knockout that I cannot get enough of.
Here are some of my personal faves that I’m currently using…
