Review: Flower Kiss Me Twice Lip & Cheek Stick in Can't Re-fuchsia

I'm not a frequent Walmart shopper (I'm more of a Target kind of gal) but I was at Walmart a while back looking for something unrelated to beauty and you know I had to stop by the cosmetics department. It was then that I remembered that Flower by Drew Barrymore released some new products in January of this year. I had really good luck with Flower's Win Some, Rogue Some Creme Blush, so I was excited to try one of the new-for-2014 lip and cheek sticks. I bought Can't Re-fuchsia (love that name) and have been using it for about a month now. So let's take a look!

Flower Kiss Me Twice Lip & Cheek Stick in Can't Re-fuchsia
(retail: $9.98, 0.21 oz)

The Kiss Me Twice Lip & Cheek Sticks from Flower are available in five shades and can be purchased exclusively at Walmart (in-store and online).

Spotted: Boots (women's products) at Walgreens

The Boots men's skincare line has been available in-store and online at Walgreens for a while now. And I think it's safe to say, since Walgreens purchased Boots a while back, that we all assumed the women's lines would eventually end up at Walgreens too. But now it's official! Boots products for women have landed at Walgreens.

Some of you mentioned to me over the past few months that you heard this was going to happen (thank you for those tips), and I want to give a special thanks to reader Toya (@prettytoyaworld on Instagram) for sharing the following pics of the kiosk she recently spotted at her local Walgreens. Check it out:

It's that time, Revlon fans! The Fall 2014 Gucci Westman Collection has landed.

Many thanks to longtime reader Amanda of Fashion Footing blog for this one. Amanda spotted this collection at her local Meijer, which sometimes gets things a few weeks before other retailers. If you can't find this one in your area yet, just hold tight because it's only a matter of time before this is everywhere (Walgreens, Rite Aid, CVS, etc.).

HOT Too Faced deal (today only, 8/27)

I received a great tip from my pal Lisa of Swatchesandwhatnot blog today and you know I had to share:

Right now on the Too Faced site they're having a summer clearance blowout, but what makes this even better is that there's a free shipping code to go along with it. Enter code PRETTYPACKAGE at checkout to receive free shipping on any $25+ order. This code is good TODAY ONLY (8/27), so hurry with the plotting before everything sells out.

Thanks again, Lisa, for this tip!
