Hello all! Today I am going to review a lipstick that I got in my November Vellvette/Fab Bag. This is going to be my first time posting lip swatches.

I am a self-proclaimed lipstick junkie and I mean it. I love wearing lipsticks and love collecting them too. So, whenever I get lipsticks in my Fab Bags, I thank them from the bottom of my heart. I got some lovely stuffs in my November Bag, among them, was this lipstick. Now, let’s move on to the review.

Product Category– Lipstick
Brand– Flormar
Price– 700INR for 3gms

Flormar is a name that was totally unfamiliar to me. When I got this lipstick, I needed to ferret about it. What I found is, Flormar is a brand that was created in 1950 Milan and it is a part of the French Cosmetics company, Yves Rocher.

Claims- Special formula enriched with Argan oil, Vitamin E, Omega 6; Cacao butter; gives a unique and translucent appearance and glossy reflection while making it ultra-hydrating and nourishing for your lips leaving lips soft and supple without any greasiness.

Packaging- This lipstick comes in a very pretty packaging. It’s classy and sleek and travel friendly too. I like the Black tube packaging and the pink scribble on it. I think the packaging is the only stuff I loved about this lipstick so much.

Shade- The shade is very hard to describe. This is kind of a bright orange-y tone with a red tinge. I hope I have made you understand. If not, please forgive me, I am very bad in describing colours and scents 😛

My Experience– Flormar Deluxe Shine Gloss lipstick is more a gloss than a lipstick. Initially I was quite impressed by the product, but later on I was sick of it. It doesn’t give enough coverage to your pigmented lips. For me, as I have a highly pigmented upper lip, this doesn’t at all work for me when applied alone. I need to either conceal my lips or use a lipstick/lip-liner of similar shade before applying the product. I generally use it as a gloss on top of a lipstick. This product has a lot of down points. First of all, it’s staying power. This lipstick stays for a good 1-2 hours, but after that you need to reapply it. Secondly, this product is so buttery that it starts melting inside the tube. So, there is no way of keeping it in your purse for a whole day. I keep it in the fridge and I sometimes feel like I am keeping it in life-support. But on the brighter note, it keeps my lips hydrated and feels like I have butter on my lips.

  • Stylish packaging.
  • Keeps the lips hydrated.
  • Looks good if used on top of a matte lipstick.
  • Has Argan oil and Vitamin E.


  • Doesn’t give enough coverage.
  • Bad staying power.
  • Transfers.
  • Overpriced. 

Would I buy it again
– Not at all.

Spending 700 bucks for a less pigmented ‘lipstick’ (read lip-balm) is so unreasonable in my opinion. I would not suggest buying this.

P.S.– As I’ve mentioned before, this is my first time doing lip-swatches. I hope you liked it. As I am a first-timer and in learning phase now, I would love to get some tips from you on how I can improve myself. Thanks for reading this post throughout. Good night 🙂

Hello lovelies, hope you all had a great Christmas and you must be busy getting prepared for the New Year’s Eve! I can’t believe that New Year is around the corner. Feeling really excited! I have a hell lot of things listed for shopping and now wondering how would I manage to accomplish it. Anyways guys, I have just got my first ever Fab Bag in my hands today.

In case you are wondering, this is just the old wine in a new bottle. Vellvette Bag has now just changed their name to Fab Bag. But I personally liked their previous name. Anyways, let’s see how Fab is the bag-

The bag is just the typical black bag primped with some colourful stars on it which I found to be really gorgeous and very significant keeping the ongoing festivities in mind. They have done a good job on the bag, I must say. Here is a look of the bag-

This is the overview of what I got inside the bag-

Products that I got in this month’s Fab Bag-

1. MUA Out There Plumping Lip Gloss- Shocking Pink
2. Kama Ayurveda Lavender Patchouli Hair Conditioner
3. LA Splash Nail Splash- Blowfish Purple
4. Bonus: Anna Andre Nail Enamel Remover

What I love about this gloss is the shade. I was looking for a barbie pink lipstick for a few weeks and I got this in my December Fab Bag. Though MUA is nowhere a ‘deluxe’ brand but still I love it as I have never used any lip product from MUA. Also, it’s going to be my first pink lip-gloss. I have no idea why I didn’t got any description card with this product.

This will be my first product from this brand. I have seen some bloggers got this in their November Vellvette Bag. I loved the packaging and the product also seems to be good. I haven’t used it yet but I will in a few days.

This will be my third pink/fuchsia nail paint that I got this year. I liked the colour. The top part of it got some dents which I didn’t like at all. I am yet to use it.

I don’t get the point of sending a nail paint remover in a beauty subscription bag, that too from a brand like Anna Andre. It may have been Sally Hansen. Nevertheless, this remover says it’s Acetone free and enriched with Vitamin E. That sounds good. Let’s see how good does it work.

I have been lucky since I have subscribed for the Vellvette/Fab Bag this year. Where I heard a lot of bloggers sharing their disappointments, I found my bag full of pretty good products. Then comes the question how Anna Andre and MUA are ‘deluxe’ brands. But as the nail paint remover came as a bonus, I don’t mind either it is from a deluxe brand or else. Talking about organizing, I must consider it as a big mistake how the Team Fab Bag have forgotten to include a description card with the lip gloss they sent.

You can subscribe for your Fab Bag here.

Overall, I liked my this month’s Fab Bag and what came inside it. I am pretty much satisfied with what I got. The nail paint and the lip gloss appears to be very good. I haven’t used the conditioner and the nail paint remover yet but I hope they work good for me.

That was it guys. I will come up very soon with another new post. Till then, be safe, be happy. Good Night 😀

Maybelline Color Sensational range is one of my favorites now. And, what I like for regular use is 205 Nearly There. It’s a great color to wear whether it’s day or night. It’s such a cute pinkish nude color. I actually not fond of nudes and naturals, I love pinks, mauves, berries and such vibrant color. But after using this I am shocked to see that nudes can also look cute.
So, let’s review this.
