I found a drugstore gem!

Mothers day is a hard day for me. I am not great at expressing my feelings, or comfortable doing so, especially concerning my choice to do adoption. I wanted to distract myself, while getting ready to visit mine and Josiah’s family I decided to dig into a box of makeup I have never used and was planning on just letting go of. This was a fantastic decision because I found a little gem!


The Flower Beauty Quad in “Foxy Browns”. I am not too fond of flower beauty, I haven’t had much luck with it. But this little quad blew my mind!For only $9.98, it packs a punch!

The pigmentation is amazing!


Is that not fantastic!? The shadows are so soft and creamy as well. They really do feel high end! The look I created using this palette turned out really pretty and lasted all day. I plan on picking up more of these shadows so be on the look out!

Have you tried these shadows? What are some of your favorite drugstore gems? What are your favorite flower beauty products?

**I will also not be selling these, they will either be thrown away or given to close family or friends who already have my gross germs. Even though a lot of the were not used on my lips they were swacthed and for some reason I feel like no amount of sanitizing can help.
