Flower Sheer Up Lip Tint is a five shade selection chubby tinted lip pencil recently introduced in Drew Barrymore’s new Flower Collection available exclusively at Walmart.
Yesterday, we were discussing how many brands are doing tinted lip pencils lately. Not to be out done it seems the Flower Makeup Collection is pushing all the right trend buttons from lip pencils like this to BB Creams.
I picked up one shade recently and gave it a whirl!
Here’s some thoughts!
Flower does have a slight disadvantage with their Sheer Up Lip Tints as they are only available in five shades. Right now brands like Covergirl and Revlon are dominating the lip pencil scene due to variety of shades.
Sheer Up Lip Tints ($7.98) do have a formula all their own though. These aren’t as balm-y a texture as Clinique’s version and have a thinner formula than both Revlon and Covergirl’s versions. I find the texture thinner yet quite pigmented with an opaque finish in the one shade I tried, Dewy Rosy. The color has a sheen but not a super glossy or shiny finish. The lightweight texture is very pleasant on my lips but isn’t terribly hydrating or moisturizing but has a soft, moist feel on my lips that’s very pleasant to wear.
I wasn’t in love with the bright red tomato shade of Dewy Rose in all honesty and a quick glance at the other shades offered it seemed like none really interested me. Shades are an important portion of why or why I would buy something and I find Flower’s shades aren’t flattering for my particular skin tone.
Overall, the texture on these is very nice with full color coverage and a weightless feel. For some reason I did come out of the experience a touch bored…I think the shade selection disappointed me slightly and took some of my excitement out of trying the product out. A few more shades would probably have me raving. Outside of the lack of variety the pencil is very nice and worth checking out particularly if the shades available are “your” colors!
