Drew Barrymore’s Makeup Line Flower Beauty is Stylish and Affordable

by

Drew Barrymore’s makeup line, Flower Beauty, was founded in 2012. In the beginning it was exclusively sold online and at Walmart. However, the expansion of sales didn’t halt there. Back in February of this year, Flower Beauty products appeared in Ulta stores across the U.S. Barrymore herself is a fan of cosmetics and beauty products, including hair care, and rather a guru of beauty. Though Flower Beauty has been around for a few years, perhaps some of you haven’t heard of the affordable brand. Flower Beauty has just about every basic product you need. The line also sells hair styling tools and fragrances, so Barrymore doesn’t just stop at makeup.

Flower Beauty’s products are easily portable, so if you’re constantly lugging makeup around with you to freshen up in the office, or if you’re running late and have to resort to doing your makeup in the parking lot, no sweat. The best part about this product line is the surprising quality at such a low price. All of Flower Beauty’s products (aside from the hair styling tools) are under $20. If you’re a self-proclaimed makeup addict looking for products that perform well and aren’t very expensive, then Flower Beauty is going to be your new best friend.

Best Values from Flower Beauty

Flower Beauty sells a moisturizing primer called In Your Prime that conditions the skin while priming for around $13 at Ulta. It’s incredibly difficult to find a good primer at a low price, especially one that does what it promises.

Petal Pout Lip Color is a great choice if you’re looking for a lipstick that’s smooth and condition while giving you a nice all-day-wear. It’s available in over twenty shades, including matte options and cream finishes. Plus Petal Pout runs anywhere from $6-9, which is a low enough price to stock up on multiple shades.

The Shimmer & Strobe Highlighting Palette from Flower Beauty is available at Ulta for $16. Like the other products in Flower’s line, it doesn’t disappoint. The formula is surprisingly creamy and lightweight, and it blends like a dream.

Back in 2015, Drew Barrymore sat down with The Hollywood Reporter for an interview and gushed about the success of her line.

I’m most proud of the price point we have managed to achieve with the formulas and materials we work with. It’s an almost impossible endeavor and it’s not something that people might know or understand or think about as a consumer. Our customer reviews are like, flawless — it’s amazing. Across the board people are very happy and I’m so relieved about that because you are surprised and amazed at the level of quality when you try the products.

It’s true. These products will surprise you both in price and quality. They’re a great everyday go-to for twenty-somethings who need to watch what they spend, but know what good quality makeup is all about.

Why You Should Be Watching ‘Santa Clarita Diet’

by

With a second helping of Santa Clarita Diet on Netflix, originally aired February 3rd 2017, who could resist binge watching some Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant undead comedy?

The show keeps you on your toes with the consistent backstory on what made Sheila Hammond (Drew Barrymore) puke up a disgusting ball and made her crave human meat like we crave Chipotle. A Serbian myth gives Sheila, her husband Joel (Timothy Olyphant), their daughter Abby (Liv Hewson) and the the zombie aficionado Eric (Skyler Gisondo) days less than ordinary.

The show has many characteristics that any Netflix junkie can appreciate and will have no trouble curling up to on their couch with a blanket and some good junk food. What is quite refreshing, not in a weird way, is the show’s unhinged use of tasteful gore. With the amount of breezy comedy, such as Sheila eating human fingers with some healthy carrots, you do not get bothered by blood getting spewed across the modern kitchen backsplash.

Now if you’re one who was snatched by the wave of the undead on television, then this show is a fruitful combination of whitty casual comedy mixed with the ever dooming issue of being undead. And of course trying to be a picturesque and normal neighborly family, while trying to get a leg up in your career without raising suspicion of your extracurricular bloody activities.

“Santa Clarita Diet” Review: The Ups and Downs of a New Diet

by

In recent years, there have been an excessive amount of films and TV shows that were undead or zombie-themed. The most noticeable films are the sci-fi horror drama “28 Days Later” and the horror comedy “Shaun of the Dead” and the most popular zombie TV series being the horror drama “The Walking Dead.” Netflix’s half-hour horror comedy, “Santa Clarita Diet,” brings an alternative spin to the zombie themed premise and also presents itself as an absurdist family sitcom that is highly aware how free they are from the traditional constraints of network television. What the show has going for itself is its great set of actors and unique twist of a family sitcom. Although, there are some parts where the show falters particularly in the structure.

The series centers on Sheila (Drew Barrymore) and Joel Hammond (Timothy Olyphant), a married couple that lives happily together as real estate agents with their teenage daughter, Abby (Liv Hewson) within the beautifully quaint suburban region of Santa Clarita. That is until Sheila feels ill, vomits profusely, dies for a bit, and then returns as part of the undead which seems like a normal start to a family sitcom. Surprisingly enough, Shelia is not like a zombie normally seen on “The Walking Dead” and abstains from killing and eating every human she sees. However, Sheila’s life does take a dark turn and she begins to eat human flesh but not in the normal instinctively undead way but in a way that boosts her confidence, audacity, and lust for Joel. Right after this turn, Joel realizes that she has changed and has become part of the undead and quickly discovers that she can only survive on the consumption of human flesh. Instead of running away in fear from her, Joel helps his wife find the most awful and despicable people for his wife to feast on all while trying to maintain the appearance and feel of a normal suburban family. As the show progresses the Hammonds realize that their lives will never be normal again.

 

Throughout each episode, it was pleasing to see how both Barrymore and Olyphant were able to click together as a married couple in an abnormal situation. In all the films that Barrymore has been in, she seems to be the unsure character in the scene. However, in this TV series as Shelia, she is mostly this sure character that goes through a dynamic change and brings this surreal courage while also balancing the humor and emotion of her character. As the show progresses through each episode, it was funny to see the irony of Barrymore’s character; Barrymore shows how Sheila feels alive in her personality when she turns towards her cannibalistic activities. Olyphant’s Joel presents a lighter side to Olyphant, which is different compared to Olyphant’s darker and more serious roles in past TV shows and films such as “Deadwood” and “Justified” and another zombie horror film, “The Crazies.” There are some moments where his execution of jokes tends to fall flat, however, Olyphant is able to break the normally troubled hero tone he conveys with this show. He is a more eccentric, comedic, and vulnerable person as Joel and is able to highlight all the complexities and triumphs in an experienced marriage. The viewer can understand how Joel is just trying to find a piece of normalcy in this hectic predicament. Shelia’s and Joel’s daughter, Abby, has the right amount of cheekiness, sarcasm, and humor that resembles a younger Ellen Page in “Juno.” Abby’s personality combined with her friendship with her neighbor’s awkward and nerdy teenage son, Eric (Skyler Gisondo) offers a great foil to the series.

 

The show reflects an alternative depiction of a family sitcom normally seen on a normal network channel such as ABC, NBC, or CBS and a pack with bloody action sequences seen on HBO or AMC. Some of the faults of the show are the pace and structure of the plot. There were some moments where the pace would slow and rush unexpectedly, especially in the middle of the season. The mystery and the root of Sheila’s current nature are not the central focus until the second half of the season. Santa Clarita Diet overall is still the right mixture of humor, horror, and heart that highlights a new side of Barrymore and a lighter comedic tone for Olyphant. The series just needs to improve the pace and structure of the plot. I give it a B.
