How cute are these Flower Petite Fleurs Pocket Triplets Lipstick? These brought me back to my childhood when I used those old colored pencils with the multi-colored bullets. Remember those?
The idea is simple with these Petite Fleurs Pocket Triplets, you have a small bullet shaped tube with three colors inside. You pop one shade out, slide it through the bottom of the barrel and the second shade will pop up in its place.
Cute right? And so retro.
Here’s a few thoughts on these.
Ugh, not good. These are actually awful. I expected them to be a sheerer tinted lip product or balm of some sort. I didn’t expect them to be so terribly drying. Each barrel contains three shades of color and although small the idea was kinda appealing as who doesn’t want three lip colors in such a space saving design right? However, the packaging is potentially messy as you have to be sure the lippie doesn’t hit the sides of the barrel when you change the shade. I also had issues putting the top back on without smooshing the lipstick. It’s just a tricky packaging that doesn’t have a ton of space to move around in thus issues might pop up.
At $6.98 they are a super deal and quite pigmented as well however, outside of the excellent opaque coverage I wasn’t terribly impressed with the formula of the lipstick. Two of the three shades have a cream finish and one has a sort of iridescent finish going on. All three are VERY heavy on lips and look and feel quite dry. The formula resembles old lipstick. It applies with a bit of tugging, looks patchy, uneven, and like I was playing with my mother’s lipstick and applied it ALL wrong. Gloss on top does give the lipstick a better finish but on a whole they just look terribly bad and as I said really, really dry.
I actually expected them to be sheerer with a light formula and a more moisturizing finish. That would have probably been better. But this formula, as is, needs some serious work. I’m a little surprised as Flower has had some excellent offerings which I’ve been slowing reviewing but unfortunately these were a sore miss.
If so I’d love to hear your thoughts.
