I put on a pair of pants faster than I have ever put on a pair of pants and drove to my neighborhood Walmart to see if the Flower Petunia Petals lipstick was in stock. I wanted to see it in person first before I purchased it. I hate getting something Online that I have never seen before in person when it comes to make-up. You can easily make a mistake as most Online pictures vary due to the bright lights used to photograph items. Sadly, Petunia Petals was all sold out =( However, there was a shade called "Rose Bud" that I liked. There was one tube on the shelf, and the best part was that it was unopened. Well, of course, I opened it to see the color, and it was a stunning shade of red. SOLD !!!
I continued to peruse the other colors of lipstick. There are two lines of lipstick (one has a velvety texture and the other is a high-shine lipstick,) a lipgloss line, a lip butter line, a sheer lip tint line, and of course, a line of lip liners. The lipsticks and the lip tints seem to be selling the fastest as indicated by the messiness and emptiness of the display. I chose another color in the high-shine variety called "Coral Floret" which is perfect for me as I have been trying to hunt down coral shades of lipstick for a while now -- very hard to find.

Flower is a full beauty line with foundations, powder, cheek color and eye color. The packaging is well-designed, does not look cheap, and stands out from other drugstore beauty brands, especially with the differently shaped lipstick tubes. The lipsticks I got this evening are labeled "Proudly made in the U.S.A." and "We never test on animals." The price-points are very affordable. Drew has done good with this project. Very well thought-out. Thank you Drew Barrymore for creating this line of beauty products for the every-day gal, like me!
Now that Flower has got my trust and belief in the product, I will venture to get the "Petunia Petals" shade of the high shine lipcolor Online. I know it's a hot pink or magenta of some sort -- a trend that has been going on for a while now, so I can't go that wrong. Anyhow, now that I like the product, I can gamble a bit.
