When it comes to new products, travel sizes intrigue me. Products I can throw in my purse that have multiple uses, are super compact, or convenient as heck must be mine. When Flower Beauty (a line by Drew Barrymore available exclusively at Walmart that I talk about a whole lot more in the review for the bronzer/blush duo that I adore!) first launched these little Pocket Triplets weren’t available. I was SO bummed because I was definitely looking forward to them. When they finally hit my Walmart I picked up the 2 that intrigued me most, the concealer trio & a pink lippie trio.
The concept of these is really great for travel. Remember those pencils/crayons that stacked back in the day to give you a new point? Same concept. Unfortunately they didn’t quite pan out that way…but let’s talk about the good points first. These are compact. Check out the photo above of the Flower Triplet next to a Milani lipstick. Great size right?
I’ll talk about the packaging more below but I’ll tell you some of the things I hate currently. This has absolutely no information on the stupid tube after removing the plastic wrap. Bull, I hate this so much. No shade name, not even what the product is. On top of that, it is one of those tubes you have to close the right way. The flat front has to meet up or else it isn’t going to close. Even then…it doesn’t stay closed well. The pretty rose gold paint on it is also scratching away & I’ve barely used it. Bummer.
The shades are creamy & actually super pretty. The concealer trio I got is in the lightest shades…can you see how dark they are? The lightest one is workable but the rest…no way no how. The lip shades all come in sets of the same color which seem silly. Who wants 3 options of pink when you could have a red, nude, & a pink? Or some sort of mixture? But…they’re gorgeous. really pretty & super creamy. They have me wanting to try the lipsticks now because if they are similar…I’d really love that darkest shade. The lipstick shades actually leave behind a stain because they’re nicely pigmented so heads up on that.
Third, check out the picture above. That’s how much product of each shade you get. No really, & I have very small nails.
Last, these retail for around $7 each…no. Just no. I know it is cute, compact, & honestly the shades are beautiful but just don’t waste your money. You won’t be able to use it. I’m planning to depot my shades because I honestly really like them but for $14 ah heck no. Not worth it guys, it just isn’t. I wish things were different because I like the concept in theory but it just didn’t come together.
