Product Review - Flormar Deluxe Stylo Lipstick #D33

    I came across this wonderful product in a Peach shade through Fab Bag (then Vellvette) in their July 2013 edition, the so called "Quick Fix Box". This was one of my first lippies as I was not much of a makeup person then and this was one of the initial product which helped start my never ending affair with cosmetics!
   Flormar, created in 1950 in Milan is a part of the French cosmetic group, Yves Rocher. They are market leaders in Turkey, with their products being available in more than 70 countries.

   I have been using this particular lipstick since almost a year now so much so it's almost over and needless to say have become a big fan of the product. This has become my go to lipstick whenever I step out of my house as it gives a very nice sober color to my lips without making them look too dramatic. What I loved the most about this lipstick was the fact that it kept my lips moist even in harsh winters unlike many others which cause drying and chapping of lips.

- A swipe or two are enough to get desired color.

   Cons:
- The color stays for 4-5 hours after which it starts to fade making frequent touch ups necessary.
