{Flower} by Drew Barrymore

Blog post written by j & a makeup artistry‘s makeup artist guru Amber:

So a few weeks ago I was shopping at Walmart and ventured to the makeup isles in search of something new and different in a foundation. I didn’t think I’d find anything until a new display caught my eye. It was bright white with the name “flower” on it. I saw Drew Barrymore pictured at the top of the display and decided to check it out. I’m not really the type of person to buy a product just because a celeb endorses it. I’d prefer to buy a product, name brand or not, based on how well it suits my needs, ingredients, and price. Well, apparently these products are made from flowers that Drew hand-picked herself. Not sure how true that is, but knowing that she is the eternal hippie she is, it only makes sense for her to name this cosmetic line “flower”.

So I decided to give the BB cream a try. I needed a new one and this was around $12, which was affordable for my budget. I chose BB2, which was a bit too light for me- but I loved the coverage it gave me. I didn’t need ANY concealer OR powder. My face was breaking out a little at the time, and it totally covered my zits and under eye circles, all while looking very natural and feeling like i had nothing on. Plus it lasted all day! I was amazed. I actually went back and bought another one a shade darker to mix with the one that was too light. I also purchased a blush & bronzer duo that I fell in love with. I haven’t had time to try out anymore, but I do want to see how the mascara and eye shadows work out. I like that the products are natural, plant based & they are department store quality but at a lower price point. There’s also lipstick, lip gloss, powders, eyeliners etc. I’m sure whatever you try you won’t be disappointed.
