The moment I found out Drew Barrymore was coming out with a beauty line, I had my purse out and I was ready to splash out. Of course, the products are only available in America, so I had to use my handy dandy forwarding address to get these wonders in my hands.
I've always loved Drew Barrymore and to be honest I'm actually a little bias. In my teenage years a lot of people use to compare me to Drew, not because we look alike, but because we move our mouths in a similar fashion. Too much information I know, but it's one of my favourite compliments to receive.
Not only do I love Drew, but I like the story about the brand name. Apparently, Drew asks people what flower they are rather than ask them describe their personalities. The reality is our flower personality changes as we get older and our lives change. At the moment, I'm very much be a 'David Austin Rose', very traditional but there is also a little quirkiness in there. I also love that the the products are made in America (woohoo to companies who support local business) and never ever test on animals. My love for this brand is starting to sound like an infomercial isn't it? Let's move on hah.
I was most excited about the Kiss Sticks, so they were the first I ordered. The ones which are black are High Shine lip colours and the white one is a Velvet finish.
All I can say, is that these gems are worth every cent. Not only are they affordable, but they are also very pigmented and creamy. Both formulas last on the lips for a very long time. I would suggest placing a lip balm underneath the velvet finish so your lips don't get chapped throughout the day.
My favourite colour is Ginger Lily - it's perfect for my medium toned skin. I've always found it hard to buy an orange which compliments my skin tone, but I struck gold with Ginger Lily!
My fellow beauty addicted in the States, you are very lucky to have this brand at your disposal, I'd be running to Walmart every second day to stock up. Can't wait until it's released internationally.
Hope you enjoyed this post and see you very soon.
