Flower Power

I have been a fan of Drew Barrymore since I was a child. I watched her movies, followed her personal life  and have read an autobiography or two. I knew that there was a cosmetic product that she has been developing but since it was not a collaboration with a big cosmetic company but rather with Walmart, I though it will not be available here in the UK. I got excited only when a friend who lives in America asked me to pick from Drew's cosmetic line website the ones I like and she will send them to me. I would normally read or see on Youtube a review of the product first before I get something. The only thing that jumped out at me in the product reviews that I saw was the lip butter.

When it arrived through the post, I tried it straight away and true enough, it looked as lovely on my lips as it did on the girl who did the review. It glides on my lips and it does not dry them  at all. I would not recommend it to substitute a proper lipstick though as the color fades in a couple of hours or so. I found, I needed to keep on reapplying it. But as the name implies, it is a lip butter and not a lipstick. It is best for lazy days or for a quick nip to the shops.

I forgot to mention, the packaging is lovely and it looks great next to my perfume bottles.

My friend also sent me a mascara but I have yet to try it.
