This is the first post from our newest blog contributor, Laura Amaya.

I’ve been wanting to try out the Flower Beauty line by Drew Barrymore for a long time now, so I was pleasantly surprised a few weeks ago when I saw that Wal-Mart Canada has started to stock it! As soon as I heard, I promptly went to and placed an order for some goodies.

As a new mama I’m all about practicality these days – I’m lucky if I get a good 10 minutes to shower and change so simple makeup is key. With that in mind I decided to pick up 3 items which would all help me create a quick and simple 5 minute face:

The BB cream went on very smoothly; I was also surprised at how full the coverage was. It absolutely did the trick for a quick face! The lip and cheek tint is my favourite of the 3 products I purchased, a quick swipe on the cheeks and lips and voila I was done – the texture is very velvety and super bendable.

Lastly, the eyeliner. I’m a huge fan of eyeliner pens because I find them easy to use, so was excited to try this one. It was definitely easy to use however the colour payoff wasn’t that great – I found that I had to press the pen hard for the colour to be very dark, otherwise it came off very light and I personally prefer a dark black liner. Below you’ll find swatches and a picture of the final look.

Overall I did like the products especially for quick every day use. It’s also great they are super affordable! You can find them at Wal-Mart Locations and on
