Last night I attended the Irish press launch of the brand Flormar. Now I know Flormar is a brand that has been around a while now. It originated in Milan in the 70’s and is now based in Turkey. It was available in Ireland for a short time too a couple of years ago, but now it is being relaunched into pharmacies around the country aswell as The Cosmetic Outlet in Dublin 8 and online too.
I myself had never tried Flormar, so I was very excited to bring home a goodie bag at the end of a lovely evening in The Residence.
I thought I would show you the products us bloggers got just to give you a little impartial look at some of what the brand has to offer.
Flormar itself has a whole range of cosmetics, including over 1000 different nail polishes, holy crap, so there is plenty of choice for us and everything is priced below €12.95!
First up we have the product their Bronzing Powder.
This bronzer is huge, you get 33grams of product for €9.95.
After swatching the bronzer I can say it’s really pigmented and soft to the touch aswell. You can see it on my arm above, swatched and then beside it a swatch more blended into the skin. It has sparkles in the pan but applies matte.
Next up is their Illuminating Primer Make-up Base.
This comes in a 30ml bottle with a pump and will cost you €9.95. Flormar say it’s infused with green tea and acacia to soothe and nourish the skin.
It comes out white on the skin initially.
But then when it blends and dries it leave a nice sheeny (but not greasy base).
I wonder how this will fare on my oily skin?
We also got an eyeshadow palette in our bags.
This is called ‘Nude Dudes’ and will set you back €9.95. It contains 5 matte brown shades including a warmer brown colour which is pretty rare to find in your local chemist. I for one am happy about this.
I’ve only swatched them on my arm so far, but like the bronzer, they were very soft and easy to blend.
The lightest shade is the exact same colour as my pale ass skin so it doesn’t show up too well on camera. It will make the perfect base colour for my lids though 🙂
We got two lip products to try out aswell.
First up the Flormar Longwearing lipgloss in ‘Backstage’.
I actually wore this today, the hot magenta colour lured me in. It’s not sticky on the lips at all and the colour pay off is pretty impressive. It has little reflective sparkles throughout it aswell. The lipglosses cost €5.95 each.
The other lip product is one of their Revolution lipsticks in the shade ‘Provocative Orange’.
I love the packaging of these 🙂
And the pay off isn’t bad either, in fact it’s pretty bloody good.
This has a really soft texture to it and went on no problems at all. The colour is also pretty gorge too right? The Flormar Revolution Lipsticks will cost us €6.95.
Finally in our goodie bag, there was Jelly Look nail enamel.
This is in the colour Turquoise Green, I love it. There’s plenty of colours in the nail polish range to choose from though so don’t worry 🙂
I just swatched it quickly on one of my nails. This is two coats and no top coat applied.
It applied easy enough and I love the long handle on it, I think it helps with the application. Not sure of a definite price on these but I will add it in as soon as I know.
Overall, I’m actually pretty impressed with what I have seen of the Flormar brand. I think it will be a welcome addition to our ‘drugstore’ makeup brand selection.
What do you think? Have you used the brand before? Let me know.
