So Flormar is supposedly Turkey’s best cosmetic brand from what I’ve read. There’s still tons of information I need to read in order to keep up with the (beauty) world- and I guess I will have a long long time discovering. But as they say, everyday is always a new day to learn and find out about new things. And I totally agree with that.
Now there are reds my lips simply cannot tolerate (hello MAC Russian Red)- maybe because once red is applied to my thick and full lips, it can make it look really sexy, or in most cases, funny. I have very large mouth admittedly, and as much as possible, I try not to wear reds or in several cases, pales/nudes because they emphasize it and I end up making myself look like a clown (with red) and a drag queen (with nude lips). So I have to be always careful with colors I choose for my diva lips. A little gloss here, a little light pink there.
Flormar Longwearing Lipstick has apricot seed-oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, and mango butter which locks in moisture to the lips. Color-wise, it looks similar to MAC’s Russian Red so I was very skeptical if I will wear it or not. So what I did is that, after application I coated it with NYC Nude York Color Liquid Lipshine that I got from Influenster, so as to not make it look really strong red. And I think it worked.
The verdict? Unfortunately, the color is not something I really want for my lips. I can wear it every now and then, but not on a regular basis. Like mentioned earlier, reds either make me or break me (ha!) and I don’t want to risk that. This one retails at $8.50 in case you’re interested.
Happy Sunday everyone!
