My Walmart did not have the full line of products. They had Lipbutter, Lipgloss Mascara and Nail Polish. I opted for a Lipbutter but did carry around a pretty orange polish but I put it back at the last minute. I'm not sure why.
 It looked like this...
Flower Nail'd It Nail Lacquer, NP9 Eye of Tiger Lily, 0.4 fl oz

No on to the Lip Butter I purchased, It is a beautiful rosy peach color called Sheer Snapdragon.

The formula of this lipbutter is very creamy. It gives alot of shine to your lips like a regular gloss but has better staying power. The color is build able but I found going over my lips twice was sufficient. It is more sheer than the Revlon Lipbutters but has more color payoff in one application than the Maybelline Color Whispers. I do get a warming sensation when wearing this product followed by itchiness. It is supposed to have a plumping effect and even though I didn't feel a tingle that warming sensation could have been the plumping ingredient in the product as for the itchy feeling, My guess is because of the scent.  
The only thing I cannot stand about this product is the smell! To me, it smells like straight honeysuckle. Bach!! I know the line is called Flower but I was not expecting it to smell SO floral.Some people might love it but I personally cannot stand extremely floral scents, it makes me feel itchy for some reason, hence why I felt itchy after I put it on. Maybe I'm allergic, who knows. It sucks too because I love the color but I don't think Ill be able to wear this lip butter. I hope the other products don't have this scent or I wont be able to test out anymore. I really want to try out the shadows, concealer and BB cream.
