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 🙂
