Flower Beauty Cosmetic Haul




Well Hello Hello! Look what we got here! A friend of mine told me which Wal-Mart she went to and spotted the Flower Cosmetics. I tried really hard not to grab everything on display so I narrowed it down to the products I think I would get the most use of.

Before I get on with this haul, I just want to make a couple announcements...

First, I must pat myself in the back because even though February might have been a short month, I think this have been the most productive month in my blog life! This would be my 61st post of the month! WHEWWWEEE! I broke my own record and I wasn't even aiming to do this much really but I must say that since I quit wasting my time on Luuux, I've had a lot more time to give 110% of myself for my blog. It was a good change I must say. I feel more accomplished, more focused, and more productive...Are you able to keep up with me? My small and simple goal is to have something up on a daily basis. I have a full time day job and I never pre-schedule my posts even if they are ready to post, I always publish them personally because as soon as I do so, I also link it on my Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. Typically, you will see me put something new between 7 pm and 11 pm, US central time.

For some time, I've noticed a significant drop in the amount of traffic I was getting daily but now it's picking back up close to where it used to be. I'm relieved to see that. I decided to revamp my page and I'm quite happy with it, however, I am still working on some blog improvement project soon to come. I'm currently tackling the Nail Swatch Gallery project, which is probably one of the biggest. Eh, I know I thought about it or mentioned it like a year ago so now would be a good time to start since I've been able to focus more on my blog. My second project will be the Lip Swatch Gallery. Third project, will be the makeup look gallery. Wish me luck! I'm very excited about it but that's going to take time and I'll try my hardest not to slack off, lol. If you have other blog improvement/ideas you would like to see on my blog, I am open to suggestions.

Ok...The haul now...




On the left, Kiss Stick High Shine Lip Color in the shade Sweet Peony. On the right, Kiss Stick Velvet Lip Color in the shade So Gladiola. I paid $6.98 each. I don't know for sure if price vary from one store to another or if it is the same across the board but I'm listing what I paid for reference.






Ok, one thing I wished I did but didn't and I will put it out there so that you don't run into the same problem. The picture above shows you how they seal the packaging. However, even if it appears sealed, I found that both of the lipsticks I purchased have been swatched by some inconsiderate idiot!! Excuse my French but it really pisses me off. The thing is, the dotted line is very easy to break into and when you put the cap back, it doesn't look like anyone broke into it because there is no obvious sign of it until you open it that is. So my advice to you is just open the damn thing and make sure no one swiped their germs on them. I had to sanitize both of these lipsticks with alcohol.







Next thing I picked up is a Creme Eyeshadow in the shade Lilac You A Lot! This was $7.98. I almost wanted get another shade but this color stood out the most and I wanted to try it first to see if I like the formula.





And finally, I grabbed the Long Wear Eyeliner in the shade Aubergine. This was $5.98.





So this concludes my small Flower Beauty haul. I actually wore the creme eyeshadow and eyeliner today but completely forgot about the lipstick because I was rushing. Will give you a review in a week or two or when I'm confident I can give you a complete and accurate review.

Have you tried the brand yet? If so, what did you get and did you like it?

  1. Ah! I hate it when that happens. Companies should just shrink wrap all their lipsticks :X Even if it means that people can't see the true color in store at least we'll know it's germ free when we get home. Can't wait to hear your review on the eyeshadow! It looks like a great color. Times like this where I wish there are WalMarts in/near NYC..

    1. Well if anything you could always order online. There was no indication or suspicion that the seal had been broken which is why I didn't bother to check but this incident just reminds to always check anyways.

    1. Some of the older pictures don't look that great, lol, and I'm pretty inconsistent with how I take pictures of my swatches so that might have to change going forward.

  4. I'm very eager to try the cream eyeshadows. One of my blog goals is to have a swatch and makeup look gallery, but that's so much work. I can't see it happening anytime soon :/ Slow and steady wins the race, I guess?

  5. My Walmart hasn't gotten the Flower line yet. I'm excited to try it though. I saw swatches of the Flower nail polish on another blog and I'm eager to find them!

    They really should do a better job of sealing the lipsticks, but it truly annoys me that people open cosmetics for swatching! I know you sanitized them, but I personally would have taken them back. Can't wait to read your reviews!

    1. Yeah out of inconvenience, I just decided to sanitize them because that particular Wal-Mart is a bit of a drive. Companies should do either one of these, have testers or seal the packaging better. Is that too much to ask?

  7. That sucks that both the lipsticks that you bought were opened and swatched. I hate it when people do that. I've seen so many people open a brand new product, swatch it and then put it back and buy the same exact product that they didn't touched. I mean seriously, if you gonna buy it, you might as well buy the on you just opened. The cream shadow that you bought looks very pretty. I can't wait to see your review soon on all these products!
