Simply Lippy Challenge Day 280 | Flormar Deluxe Cashmere Lipstick Stylo in Shade DC36, Natural Rosewood

So far throughout my challenge I’ve tried out two lipsticks from Flormar; one which I really wasn’t impressed by and another which I quite liked. So I suppose it’s fair to say that it’s been a bit hit and miss up to now. Today however, I decided to give another one a try to see how I got on.

The lipstick I chose is from their Deluxe Cashmere collection, and comes in a lovely metallic gold bullet which I really liked. The shade itself is a little controversial as it’s called natural rosewood so I was expecting a rose shade, but it is actually more of a muted coral than anything else.

In saying that, I quite liked the shade and it applied very easily to my lips. The formula is creamy and blendable, and the pigment is much better than I was expecting it to be too.

I found the formula to be quite moisturising but not necessarily hydrating, and did need to reapply a few times throughout the day. However, it didn’t dry out my lips and the staying power was much better than expected too.

Of all the Flormar lipsticks I’ve tried, this is definitely my favourite of the three and I do tend to favour a cream finish in general. The coverage is opaque so it completely covers your lips when you apply it, and it feels very soft to wear too.

Have you ever tried a Flormar lipstick? If so, I’d love to hear your thoughts so let me know by commenting below.

Simply Lippy Challenge Day 249 | Flormar Long Wearing Lip Gloss in Shade, Soft Pink

You may recall I tried out my first Flormar lippy last week and I wasn’t that gone on it. While the pigment was lovely, I found the matte formula far too dry and very difficult to blend.

Given all the good things I’ve been hearing about this brand however, I decided to give them another go by trying out one of their long wear lip glosses to see whether it would live up to expectations or not. And, I’m glad to say, it did.

I’m not a huge lip gloss person, but sometimes I like to wear one to change things up a bit, and I have to say, this one was really lovely to wear.

The formula is slightly vinyl like while also being very light, and left no stickiness on my lips whatsoever. The gloss finish was quite sheer as you would expect, but there was just enough pigment to give a subtle pop of colour to the lips too.

The lasting power was pretty good for a gloss, but to me if you want a long wear lip product, a gloss is never going to be as good as a cream or liquid matte finish.

I was glad that I gave the brand another try, and based on today, I do think I’ll be trying out some more products soon enough. I’ll just make sure I stay away from the super matte finishes from now on!

Simply Lippy Challenge Day 241 | Flormar Extreme Matte Lipstick in Shade 02, Pale Pink

Flormar is a brand that has been on my list to try out as I’ve seen a lot of people talking about it lately. Up until now, I’ve never tried any of their products but when I was in the chemist the other day, I picked up a few lipsticks to add to my challenge list.

The first lipstick I chose was one from their Extreme Matte range in a dusty pink shade, which I really like. The pink isn’t too bright with a lovely a rose tone to it, and I’ve become a big fan of rose tone lippies over the course of my challenge.

The pigment is equally as good but unfortunately that’s where the positives end for me because I was really disappointed by the finish.

The finish is super matte, and when they say super matte they really mean it, in fact, it’s so matte that it took a lot of effort to apply the lipstick to my lips. It is so dry that I must have layered it at least ten times to get a good colour transfer, and though I finally got a good colour, I’m just not sure the effort was worth it.

My lips are a little on the dry side anyway as you’ll already know if you’ve been following the blog for a while, but even still,  I think this would be too dry for a lot of people.

It’s a shame, as had this been a slightly more creamy formula I think I would have loved it because of the shade and pigment. But for now, this just isn’t really doing it for me.
