As you may know, Drew Barrymore recently released her Walmart exclusive makeup line called Flower. I scoured high and low to find a Walmart closest to me that had it displayed in the store. Of course none of the stores right near me carried it yet so I had to travel a bit to find it. You can buy the products on the Walmart website but most of the items I wanted to try were out of stock online plus I wanted to see them in person first.
The first product I want to talk about is the Win Some, Rouge Some Cream Blush ($7.98). These little cream blush pots come in 6 different shades, I chose Peach Blossom to try. They come in a nice compact square container with a flip top lid. The cream blush portion itself is about the size of a quarter.
It’s quite deceiving, but there’s actually a good amount of product in this tiny package. As compared to a NYX cream blush whose packaging is quite large in comparison, the Flower contains a bit more. NYX cream blush contains 0.12oz while this Flower cream blush is 0.14oz. I happen to prefer the smaller packaging. It fits easily in a small makeup bag for travelling and takes up way less storage space.
The texture of this Flower cream blush is quite good. Upon first glance, it looks a bit dry in the packaging and not as wet as other brands. But once you swirl your finger in it a bit and warm it up, it’s actually very creamy. It blends out really nicely too.
Pigmentation is great also for my fair skin. This shade may be a bit too light for darker skintones but it can easily be built up a bit too. This shade gives my cheeks a nice hint of peachy pink color. As far as wear, I get the average 4 hours before fading starts with my oily skin. That’s the same as I get with any cream blush, so not bad.
So have you tried any of the new Flower cosmetics yet? I have another blush/bronzer duo and a couple lip butters from the line to show you soon.
Available exclusively at Walmart.
