Makeup Favourites: FLOWER Beauty - Part 2


Flower Beauty, Drew Barrymore's Cosmetics line, available exclusively at Walmart, is relatively new to the drugstore cosmetic's world. They do things a bit differently than some of the biggest competitors - all the products are made in the US, the packaging is beyond anything you've ever seen from drugstore makeup, and the biggest deal for me, they never test on animals.
If you remember from my original first impressions post about Flower Beauty, the Walmarts in my town didn't stock the full line of Flower cosmetics right off the bat. But now they do!

I picked up a few more products to try out and I'm really happy with all of them. I grabbed the powder foundation, two cream blushes, and a chubby blush/lip combo stick.


My favourite product by far is the pressed powder. I went with the lightest shade, and use it to set my foundation every morning. Surprisingly, I adore the little brush it came with! It's fantastic for using under my eyes to set my concealer as well as along the sides of my nose. I use my regular powder brush for the rest of my face. The powder itself it soft and mattifying. I love that it lasts all day and matches my skin tone nicely.

The cream blushes are lovely. I've not used too many cream cheek products in the past but I do know they can help to give a really natural glow to your face. These blushes do this that! I love using one along with a highlighter to really give a beautiful glow to my cheeks. These are definitely a product I've been gravitating towards on "no makeup days". They're so easy to apply, just use your fingers, and it look so natural! The colours I chose are a light dusty rose shade - "Forget-me-not", and a deeper cherry red - "Elegant Azalea".

The Lip & Cheek Chubby Stick I chose is in the shade KM5 "Raisin the Roof". It's a very dark, vampy red that I thought would be gorgeous for Autumn/Winter and upcoming holiday parties. I haven't used it too much yet as I haven't had the oppourtunity but a little goes a long way with this one on the cheeks. It's quite opaque. A few dots is all you need, then you're able to blend it out nicely. I think applied to the lips it would be best to use a liner and a brush, to get a really stunning look.



Have you tried any of these products? What are your favourite bits and pieces from Flower Beauty? All in all, I have been so impressed with everything I have gotten from this brand. From the beautiful packaging to the quality and variety of the products, I'm a huge fan.

This is kind of an continuation post about my first post on Flower Beauty, Read the first post too!

    1. As they've only been in Canada for about a month I can totally sympathize on hoping they become more widely available. I would say they were worth the wait though!
