Drew Barrymore helps out all the poor girls.

I guess the title of this post could be Drew Barrymore helps out the poor/thrifty/cheap/don't want to spend my money on expensive makeup girls.
First off I love Drew Barrymore.  I like to imagine we would be good friends because honestly who wouldn't want to be friends with me and my impression of Drew is that we have a lot in common.  We are both a little hippish and quirky and fun etc.  In this month's Lucky magazine Drew talks about her new makeup line she has put out called FLOWER.  I tried it and so far I surprisingly really like it.  I don't know why I am so surprised because when my best friend puts out a makeup up line she of course used my advice and put out a great product.  It is higher quality product for a low price.

Just so you know I worked in cosmetics for about 6 years.  I started out in Clinique and then worked for Estee Lauder and Lancome and then some free lance.  I have used a lot of different kinds of makeup and there is a difference in makeup quality and usually you have to pay for that difference.  Some makeup products are worth paying for and some products are not.  That is a whole other post.  For now here is my review of some of the FLOWER products.

Zoom-In Ultimate Mascara:  I love this mascara and I thought that changing the brush up by twisting wouldn't make a difference and was a gimmick but I was wrong.  It makes a difference and it is fun!  It doesn't clump or flake but is super easy to wash off.  You also don't need to apply a lot to get enough on your lashes.  Love love it!  If you don't like it I will buy yours from you.

Glow Baby Glow blush/bronzer in Beachy Keen:  I picked Beachy Keen because I love anything with the word Beach in it but there are 4 color options.  It is great!  It is very silky and applies nicely.  It also stays on well.  It is just as good as anything you will buy in the department store.  BTW it does not come with a brush.

Shadow Play Eye Shadow Quad in Foxy Browns:  Love this eye shadow!  I was very impressed with how silky it is.  It applies like an expensive shadow.  Dare I compare it to Chanel??  Yes I will!  There are 4 different quads I love this quad and I want more.

Sheer Up Lip Tint:  I got the Lacy Laurel.  I love the subtle pink color it's not too bright.  It love that it doesn't have a taste or smell and it goes on smooth and has a slight shine.  It is quick and easy and you don't need a mirror to apply it.

Color Play Creme Shadow:  This is a nice creme shadow.  It has a great texture and is easy to apply.  I will love it for summer and it would work well as a shadow base too.  Creme shadows just don't wear very well and you can't wear eyeliner with them because they suck it up so just an FYI about creme shadows they all wear like that.  But it still looked nice and wore well throughout the day without creasing I just wish I didn't wear eyeliner with it.

From the products I tried this is a great line of makeup at a great low price and is as good as anything you will buy at a department store.  The only downfall is that you have to go into Walmart to get it because it is sold exclusively there.  As I try more of it I will let you know what I like.

Let me know what you think.
