Haul: Drew Barrymore's Flower Beauty!




I'm so excited for today's post, because it's all about my recent Flower Beauty Haul! This is Drew Barrymore's beauty line, which I've been wanting to get my hands on ever since it was released. I'm a huge Drew Barrymore fan, as you probably know by now. So I've been eyeing off various Flower Chubby Sticks, Kiss Sticks and blushes on Facebook and Instagram without actually being able to get any because they're only available at Walmart in America and the Flower Beauty website, both of which don't ship to Australia. I was thrilled to be contacted by Big Apple Buddy recently, and jumped at the chance to collaborate with them on this U.S. haul. More on Big Apple Buddy and how you can use their services to shop from the United States later in this post, but first, let's check out the Flower Beauty makeup I bought!

Flower Beauty Haul!
~ In Bloom Cosmetic Zip Pouch
~ Framed Cosmetics Case
~ Limited Edition Travel Makeup Set containing
   > Ultimate Travel Brush Set & Travel Clutch
   > Flower Pots Powder Blush in Wild Rose
   > Zoom In Ultimate Mascara in Black
   > Shadow Play Eyeshadow Quad in Foxy Brown
   > Color Proof Longwear Lip Cream in I'm Blushing
~ Shimmer and Shade Eyeshadow Palette in Warm Natural
~ Eyes On The Prize Eyeshadow Chubby in Olive My Love
~ Lip Suede Velvet Lip Chubby in Berry-More
~ HydraSilk Lip Butter in Poppy Petal
~ Kiss Stick High Shine Lip Color in Rose Bud
~ Kiss Stick Velvet Lip Color in So Gladiola
~ Lip Service Lip Butter in Sheer Snapdragon*



One thing I love about this range is how affordable it is. As I mentioned, it's sold in Walmart in America, so it's essentially a budget line. I wanted to pick up a couple of cosmetics bags because being a Drew fan, they are something I can keep as a collector's item, that I won't use up like makeup. I am, however, going to use them, but I kind of want to keep them in top condition at the same time. LOL. Good luck with that! The In Bloom Zip Pouch is bigger than I expected, but will be great for travelling, and the Framed Cosmetics Case will be perfect for carrying around touch-up makeup in my handbag. These were only US$11 and US$8 respectively, which is beyond reasonable.





I couldn't go past the Travel Makeup Set, an online exclusive, which contained a wide variety of different products from the range for only US$40, valued at US$57. For starters it contained another little bag, this time a pretty shiny flat-style bag that would be ideal for holding a few smaller cosmetics in. I am lacking in makeup brushes, and the eyeshadow quad shades are right up my alley, so this Set looked the best for me out of all the great value Sets available.




Do I need another natural/nude palette when I already have more than enough? Obviously no, but look at it! Sorry not sorry! Now in case you are starting to fantasize about your own U.S haul, let me tell you a bit about Big Apple Buddy. It's a shopping concierge service that lets you buy the latest tech, fashion, beauty and outdoor products from America, that aren't available here. It's super-easy and I experienced outstanding and friendly customer service. There were two delivery options to choose from; I chose the cheaper economy one and I have to say, my parcel still arrived quicker than I expected! Everything was packed really well and arrived safe and sound. Be sure to check them out if there's something you want from America! OK, let's get back to the makeup, LOL.





I picked the Eyeshadow Chubby in Olive My Love because I don't have many green eye products and I loved that Drew named this one after her daughter, Olive. How cute! I'm not gonna lie; I also chose the Lip Chubby based on the punny name Berry-More! It was either that or Red-dy To Bloom and the berry shade won out. I did go a bit heavy on the lip products, and I wanted most of them to be bold reddish shades, because Drew wears a lot of red lippie, so I wanted to follow this trend with my Flower beauty purchases. Many thanks to Phillis from Big Apple Buddy for popping in a freebie, the Sheer Snapdragon Lip Butter*. It's greatly appreciated!

    Do you know if this shipping service works with Sephora too? I know they've been blocking heaps of companies like this now so it's getting harder :( sounds awesome though. I've been curious about Flower beauty too!

    1. I'm not entirely sure, but I think it could be arranged, as Flower Beauty wasn't under Beauty on the site and yet it was still fine. I think they just put a few examples on the site and their actual range of places they can order from is much wider :)

  14. The lipsticks looked so pretty. I don`t think you can get this brand in the UK though. Shame, as I wanted to try some products. They`re also cruelty free and that`s also a plus.

  15. What a great haul! I haven't tried Flower Beauty except for a nail polish. Lol. I'm really attracted to their beautiful looking blushes. Great you found a service so you can shop the USA. They have so much that we don't have here in Canada, too. Xo
