The line is exclusive to Wal-Mart and seems to have a price tag comparable to other drug store brands like L'Oreal, Maybelline, etc.
I picked up a few items:
I am most curious about the "Triplet" products, though, ironically, I didn't pick any of them up. There are lip triplets, eye triplets and face triplets.
- reasonably priced
- contemporary formulations: cream to powder blushes, matte lipsticks, etc.
- very wearable colors
- packaging. I do love the sort of Art Deco aesthetic. However, the blushes have convex lids, so they won't stack, the eyshadow quad isn't a square, so it doesn't play particularly well either. The lipstick tubes seem really unnecessarily bulky.
- Exclusive to Wal-Mart. I'd say that most people have access to a Wal-Mart or to walmart.com, but I, personally, try not to shop at Wal-Mart, so this is mostly a miss for me.
- labeling on the lipsticks. If you have more than one, it's really easy to mix up the labels and the color names aren't particularly helpful in sorting them out.
- Flower Beauty website. Doesn't have much information. Everything links back to Wal-Mart's website which also doesn't have a whole lot of information.
The labels on the cosmetics say "We never test on animals", but I really have no idea what that means. I read in Women's Wear Daily that Barrymore co-owns Flower Beauty with "design and manufacturing firm, Maesa Group". I don't know who they are or what their animal testing status might be.
I will have in depth reviews on these products next week, but I just wanted to give you guys a sneak peek.
Hope you have a great weekend!
