REVIEW: Flormar Long Wearing Lipstick

21 Feb

Another full sized sample from my favorite BDJ Box is going to reviewed today. I got this in the Dec-Jan BDJ Box which you can check out here. Flormar is a new brand for me. Haven’t heard of it until BDJ Box included it in. You may want to check out their site.

I love the sleek sophisticated packaging it has. The black tube has a transparent bottom which I think is pretty unique.

I love the color of this. I think it is a bright  fuchsia  pink shade which is very fine with me. I don’t have a lipstick shade like this yet! You may be hesitant to try this out but don’t be because it is perfectly wearable. I think this is great for both daytime and night time wear.

It costs 349php for 4.2g/tube. Not bad at all. And to think that this just came free from the BDJ Box.

Product Description:

From Turkey’s best cosmetic brand, imagine apricot seed oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, and mango butter on your lips to lock in moisture. All you need for full-on color and all-day coverage.

It covers the lips perfectly with its rich, creamy and moisturizing structure. Softens the lips with its nourishing properties and gives them a shiny look.

This lipstick is very pigmented. With one swipe on your lips, the color looks great already. It is in the middle of being creamy and glossy. It is not too glossy but there is a bit of shine to your lips. You can add lip gloss on top of it but I like it the way it is.

With the ingredients mentioned above, I think this lipstick is good for everyday wear. Who wouldn’t want moisturizers for their lips? I don’t think anyone will say yes to that.

I wore this for around 10hours. Though the creaminess fades and the color transfers, I like it still. Some pigments settled into the lines on my lips so I think a lip balm is needed before application of this. I love that it leaves a tint on the lips. I think this would be better if I have blotted and applied for 3 times to avoid streaks and color transfers.

Here’s a picture of me wearing the lipstick. I actually used this during the birthday party of our daughter. It looks great on pictures!

What I like:

  • very pigmented
  • stays on for 4 hours
  • leaves a tint on the lips
  • good for everyday wear
  • has apricot seed oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, and mango butter to moisturize lips.
  • non-sticky and glides easily
  • has a light subtle smell

What I didn’t like:

  • settles into lines on my lips
  • some pigment transfers on straws and cups
  • has no SPF
  • no information and expiration date labeled on it
  • may not be easily available

Overall: I love the color that I got and I think this is good enough because of its pigmentation. I want to try out other shades though I am not sure where these are available.
