Rant or Rave- Flower Zoom-In Ultimate Mascara

Flower is a make-up brand created by Drew Barrymore that is sold exclusively at Walmart. I don’t head to Walmart often, but while I was there I decided to look at the line and see what was available. I saw this mascara and got super excited! I really like the Calvin Klein mascara with the changing brush, but it costs $19. Seeing a similar product for under $8 was like hitting the jackpot! I snatched this up in hopes of finding a dupe.

As excited as I was to try this out, it got thrown into a drawer and forgotten for a series of months. Recently, while looking for something, I spotted it and decided to try it out.

I love the gold packaging! I think it makes it look at feel like a higher end mascara and it’s just the right size. I tend to have issues with Covergirl mascaras because they are so large. 

The brush also turns and stays in place really easily. I like that it has 3 different positions for three different needs; volumizing, curling, and lengthening. While I don’t necessarily need the curling, it’s always fun to play with different brushes.

I went to try this mascara on my lashed and… nothing. Literally, nothing happened. The mascara was completely dried out. I have never had this happen to me before. I know that I let this sit for a few months, but it was still in the package unopened. I checked the packaging to see if there was an expiration date on it, but couldn’t find anything anywhere. I’m so disappointed.

I bought this mascara in hopes of finding a dupe for a high end mascara that I like. Unfortunately, I found a mascara that does absolutely nothing. I don’t know if I just got a dud or if this mascara is just crap, but I won’t be buying another one to test it out. I also don’t have any desire to try any additional products from this make-up line after this experience. Definite fail leading to a definite rant.

Have you tried anything from the Flower line? Have you tried this mascara? Did I get a dud?
