I’ve been eyeing the Flower Beauty line ever since it came out, but I obviously can’t get any of that over here, unless I go through a reseller. In a fit of “need to buy something,” I bought some things—just 3—from the Flower Beauty range, and here are my thoughts on this “Kiss Stick High Shine Lipstick.”
If you are in Manila, in search of Flower Beauty, look no further than Bon Marche.I tend to shy away from warm colors—especially for lip products—because they pronounce my “yellow-ness” and I don’t like looking too warm. Don’t get me wrong; I like being tan, just not warm. Ginger Lily isn’t so bad, though I bought this on the off-chance that it would be a dupe for MAC’s Betty Bright (it isn’t), and I honestly kinda like it despite that obvious mismatch that I should have caught anyway.
Ginger Lily seems to be a reddish coral. The pigmentation is superb, but the formula is so creamy that you need to take very good care of where you are drawing. There’s a chance that it will get everywhere.
One swipe delivers that amount of color. Good quality, if you ask me! The packaging is quite nice, too, though I wouldn’t go as far as everyone else, saying that it looks expensive. These don’t look expensive. They look quite nice but they don’t look high-end to me.
There’s a weird smell, too, like the metallic smell of overexerted batteries. I don’t know if that’s just mine, but no one else seems to note that. Is it crazy that I think I’ll still use this even after that fact?
Over all, this is a good drugstore lipstick, I think. If you’re looking for cruelty-free options, try looking into this line of lipsticks. I read the velvets/mattes were rubbish, but that these take the cake!
Flower Beauty is cruelty-free and available at Walmart.
