Happy Monday! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. I took Saturday off to celebrate Lizzy’s last woop before she says “I do” and some time to just relax. Because of my cold two weeks ago, I’m still not fully 100 percent. On the plus side, only 1 day left of my 21 day detox! I’m working on a post about my detox journey and June’s newsletter. Apologies for the delay. Don’t forget to subscribe if you haven’t already. Today’s video and post focuses on the new Flower Beauty eyeshadow palettes and highlight palette. Flower beauty is an affordable drugstore brand available at Walmart, Walmart.com, and FlowerBeauty.com. Watch today’s video for the full review. I also review Coola and bareMinerals.
WHAT IS MAKEUP BAG MONDAY?
Each week I rotate my makeup bag with new product launches and makeup from my makeup collection. Originally this series started here on sereinwu.com, I have since moved it to my YouTube Channel. I am now bringing back Makeup Bag Monday on the blog! Come back every Monday for detailed makeup reviews and find out what I have selected for the upcoming week. MBM blog post will have closeup photos and true to life swatches to help with any of your shopping needs. Think of it as a readers digest to go along with the YouTube videos.
In case you haven’t heard of Flower beauty, they are an affordable makeup brand created by Drew Barrymore. Drew believes that women everywhere deserve the best quality, most efficacious products at an affordable price.
FLOWER empowers women by developing products that help you look and feel great in your OWN skin, and to embrace your individual beauty with the support of inspired, luxurious products made with you in mind. At FLOWER our passion is creating cosmetics and tools that not only make life easier and more fun, but look and feel amazing – from our prestige formulas that will delight and surprise, to packaging that’s designed for performance and charm.
All of our products are cruelty-free. (flowerbeauty.com)
I’ve dabbled with Flower Beauty a few times before and have found the products to be easy to use and good quality for the price. Therefor when I received the new eyeshadow palettes, I was excited to review. Formulation alone, each eyeshadow is pigmented, smooth, and blendable. A little powder, but good overall. As a palette, I found them to be a bit lacking. Each palette has 1 maybe 2 matte shades so it becomes difficult to create a variety of looks without using other palettes. Still for the price, they are worth checking out.
Along with Flower Beauty, I was also testing out the COOLA dawn patrol classic primer and rosilliance organic BB+ in golden. I’ve been very happy overall with my recent discoveries of COOLA products.
Finishing off the week, I finally pulled out my bareMinerals Invisible bronze and glow compacts I purchased back in April. bareMinerals really has been it for me. They consistently work well with my skin and give me the natural no makeup makeup look.
