Drew Barrymore Flower Beauty Lip Service Lip Butter|The Upgraded Version of My Lips But Better


As I'm typing this review, a trip to my local Wal-Mart store is already on my schedule, so I can pick up more products from the new Flower Beauty created by Drew Barrymore. Yes! That's how much I'm loving this new line. Following my wonderful experience with the Beauty Balm BB Cream, I'm moving onto the Lip Service Lip Butter ($6.98 for 0.12 OZ/3.5g) in LB4 Princess & the Peony.



The clear top is dainty and beautiful, and the plastic tube is sturdy but light. It's a bit bulky compared to other lip products but can still be hold comfortably in one hand. The only part that I'm not too fond of is the white bottom, which feels cheap in person.







The sealed packaging adds an extra protection against tampering with the product inside. Please be aware that this name sticker is your only identification for this product as there is no other imprints or permanent information on the tube.




The lip butter has a faint floral scent, which is almost undetectable when applied onto the lips.

There are many reasons why I love this product - rich consistency, creamy texture, opaque result, beautiful shine, extremely smooth finish, and non-tacky to the touch. It's so smooth that sometimes I even forget that I have it on. It takes the saying "my lips but better" to a whole new level.



The lip butter comes in 9 colors. Princess & the Peony is a soft pink shade that feels light on the lips but provides great color payoff.

Flower Beauty claims that the buttery texture creates "an optical plumping effect", which I agree with to some extent. The smooth finish does provide a minimum and visual plumping effect, but that's true with most lip products. Our lips simply look better and juicier with a creamy lip product compared to dry and bare lips. But this can not substitute for a lip plumper if you are really looking for a fuller result.


Although not a holy grail material, this is an excellent product with minor flaws. It's creamy texture will not warrant a long lasting wear, but it sits on my lips quite well for about 2 - 3 hours. The only apparent disadvantage is the gradual disappearance of the lip butter, leaving behind a stained layer on the lips, which isn't too bad if you reapply this every few hours.


Overall, this is one of my best drugstore product discoveries. Its creamy and smooth application alleviates that rush morning routine. The pigmented finish and the shiny look will turn the spotlight on you, and the budget friendly price tag works great for everyone. What are you still waiting for? Grab them before they're gone.

What are your favorite "my lips but better" products? Do you usually go for a natural look or dramatic lips? And if you've tried out this new collection from Flower Beauty, what pieces are you loving so far? Let's chat in the comments.

  1. We don't have this here in Australia.. Looks good, but the packaging (like you said) looks so bulky and seems tacky! Sounds like a great product though! I don't wear MLBB, just lip balms or I'll use a lipstick as a lip tint! :)

    1. Tram, as of now, the entire Flower collection is only available in the U.S. and exclusively at Wal-Mart. However, once a certain brand comes popular, there are always chances that retailers on Australia will pick this up.

    1. Natasha, Drew Barrymore is certainly lovely. Unfortunately, her new line is only available now in America. But I won't be surprised to see it soon in Canada, considering how much good things I've hearing about it.

    1. I haven't tried out other colors yet but Princess & the Peony is such a gorgeous shade. I'm actually really tempted to try out some products Burberry. I'm thinking about the lipgloss.

  5. For whatever reason I thought the Drew Barrymore line was only available overseas until I saw it in Walmart today and I was so excited! Definitely checking it out soon! A little burnt out on all the lip butters and balms but this is a great color on you and I just love Drew!

    1. Katie, I think we're all a bit overwhelmed with all the new product launches. Drew's new line is available in selected Wal-Mart stores and online.

    1. Helen, I feel you. Personally, I've never been a fan of shopping at actual Wal-Mart stores. You can find the entire line on Wal-Mart.com

  7. What a cute product! And I love how Drew focuses on affordable makeup unlike many other celebrities (I don't consider the Kardashians celebrities)

    1. Joanne, I agree with you. I admire that Drew is able to focus on quality products rather than charging high price tags.

  8. I am very curious about this line now! I LOVE sheer, balmy lip products--always have--so I am so glad most brands are releasing their own versions now. So many gorgeous lippies to choose from! :D

    I am not sure about the packaging (or brand name, to be honest) but I love the look of this product! It's so pretty on you, Angela!

    1. I think if this line does well in the U.S. market, I can't imagine why they won't push it internationally.
