Flower Beauty Summer 2014

The Makeup Examiner has tried just about every product from the Flower Beauty line and this budget-friendly brand never ceases to amaze me with its high quality. Who’d have thought that a cosmetic line carried at Walmart would have a single product that I’d fall in love with? Certainly not me! Dear Drew, I’m sorry that I doubted you. I, digress …

In November 2013, TME wrote a preview of Flower Beauty’s offerings for 2014, so please check that out -- “Flower Beauty 2014 Product Preview Exclusive” -- for full view of what Flower has out right now. Let’s move onto a few spring/summer must-haves!

Recently, TME was sent more products to check out, one of them being Flower Nail It! Nail Lacquer ($4.98). Flower nail lacquers are free of DBP, toluene and camphor; are available in 24 on-trend shades, are cruelty-free, made in the USA and … actually work! The formula allows for a quick two-coat application that is both chip resistant and long lasting. TME was sent Aster Place NP20, which is the perfect matte rose and on-trend for every season! But if you’re looking for a few shades to sizzle this summer, try Cosmos-Politan NP11 or Thistle or That? NP7.

Next up, Flower Beauty Shadow Play Eyeshadow Quads ($9.98). The Eyeshadow Quads are available in four palettes, contain Ginko Biloba extract to help keep lids supple and the color delivery is insane. The highly pigmented shadows offer the versatility of going for an intense eye or an ethereal subtle look, the later of which is very hot for S/S 2014.

Moving on to the last, but far from least, two products to grab for the warmer months … Glisten Up! Highlighter Chubby ($9.98), available in three hues, features a sheer, illuminating highlighter with a long-lasting glow that can be used over makeup or alone for a natural glow. TME is addicted to this highlighter! Goodbye Benefit Cosmetics' Watt's Up ($30)! Rounding out the mix is Lip Suede Velvet Lip Chubby ($7.98), available in five shades, but “Life’s A Peach VC1” is a must-have for this season.

I have to mention … again … that Flower Line & Shine Lip Liner ($6.98 - 5 Shades) is still a TME favorite. Aside from the ease of application, the liner glides on and offers all-day wear via a water-resistant formula. I was fortunate to have been sent all five shades and normally I share what hits my desk, but that’s not gonna happen with MY Line & Shine Lip Liner! Readers know that it’s not often that TME goes full-tilt for a product, but the liner is seriously that good!

All the issues that are important for me to support and all the things that I want to stay away from are so beautifully incorporated into Flower Beauty. And, again, TME is compelled to emphasize the price point. With products that are very affordable and offer an array of on-trend hues, one has the opportunity to play. Can we ask for anything more? You can find Flower Beauty at Walmart.
