I recently attended Lucky FABB in LA and was gifted some amazing Flower Beauty products by Drew and her team.  I’ve never tried this brand before, and today I finally had the chance.  Drew recently launched Flower Beauty, which is sold at Walmart, and makes high quality beauty products affordable.  All products from the line are made in the USA and are not tested on animals.  They each have their own unique packaging style with Drew’s signature touch of rose gold.

I started my eye look with Flower Beauty’s Color Play Crème Eyeshadow in Time Willow Tell.  It’s a green/gold shadow that’s perfect for anyone with green, blue-green, or hazel eyes.  I was a little hesitant to dive into the product at first, but boy I’m glad I did.  Inside the pot you will find a plastic top with a handle that covers the eyeshadow.  I used it as a mini painter’s palette to warm up the color prior to application.  I’m not sure if this is its true purpose, but if so it’s a great idea!  I’m a girl obsessed with crème shadows, but unfortunately many brands don’t get them right.  Drew on the other hand nailed it.  The eyeshadow applies smoothly without creasing and has great pigmentation.  It’s also a great base to pair with a matte shadow for a showstopper look.  I’m officially hooked on this  crème eyeshadow, and I can’t wait to try my second color, Rest on Your Laurel.  These gems are priced at Walmart for $7.98.

After finishing my eyeshadow I applied Flower Beauty’s Easy on the Eyes Long Wear Eyeliner in Khaki Shimmer.  I’m not sure if the Flower Beauty Gods were shining on me or if it was a total coincidence, but this liner was the perfect sidekick to my Time Willow Tell shadow.  The liner is retractable with a built-in sharpener, a must have combo and personal preference of mine.  The color glided on smooth and did not pull or tug.  Once again I’m a huge fan, and look forward to testing out my second color, Aubergine.  These gliders are priced at Walmart for $5.98.

I finished off my eyes with Flower Beauty’s Extreme Measures Lengthening Mascara in Black.  The tube in its dark purple metallic color and rose gold lettering exudes sex appeal prior to opening, and inside you will find an hourglass shaped wand.  Now I know every reputable makeup artist will tell you not to do this, but I fully admit to pumping my mascara.  It gets more product on the wand for a little more bang for your buck and with Drew’s cost effectiveness why skimp?  I’ve never used an hourglass shaped wand before and I absolutely love it.  This mascara lengthens and it will take your lashes to the extreme, even the bottom ones.  It fanned out all of my lashes individually and there was no smudging or clumping.  This sexy mascara is priced at Walmart for $6.98.

I have nothing but cheers for this product.  I’ve worn it all day and nothing moved, smeared, or ended up somewhere it shouldn’t be.  I’m thrilled to have discovered this brand and encourage my readers to check it out.  Anyone who is mindful about spending money on makeup must try this product.
