Another day, another #FLORMARWEEK instalment. I've brought you LIPS, FACE and EYES so far and today I am going to bring you on a tour of Flormar Cheeks. I can't vouch for y'all but I love my blushes, I love wearing them, I love collecting them, I love trying new colours and experimenting with them. To me, my face is not made up until I have my blush on! In terms of blush offerings, Flormar offer two lines- the Blush On regular blushes (€6.95) and the Terracotta Blush-Ons (€11.95), as well as a range of Terracotta Powders (€12.95).
The Blush-Ons is the regular blush line in the Flormar collection and there are three shades available- a cool pink, a warm pink and a peachy pink. The compacts are €6.95 a piece and the blush is housed in a gorgeous matte black case with see through lid and it comes with a little blush. In my opinion, I would rather ditch the brush and put in more product as I am not usually a fan of the brushes that come with cosmetics but if you are the kind of person that likes to apply your makeup on the go, this might be a dream little kit for you. The shade selection is very limited but that might just be because the brand is still in rolling out phase in Ireland. I just haven't picked up one of these yet as I have fallen head over heels for the other blush line (keep reading!).
Now these beauties are something special. These are the
MAC I mean Flormar Terracotta Blush-Ons. Do they not bear a striking resemblance to a certain MAC Mineralize Skinfinish powders to you? These look like quality, feel like quality, and in all honesty, really perform like quality. I have loads of MAC MSFs and I would easily easy rate these in the same category. The pans are huge and the powder is baked so it is gorgeously finely milled and marbled and they come in gorgeous colours- Pink Bronze, Touch of Apricot, Touch of Rose and Pure Peach. These just apply like silk to the face and are so pigmented that a little goes a long way. I know for a fact I will end up buying all of these and I highly recommend you to pick one out.
Along with the Terracotta blush-ons, there is also a Terracotta Powder range which also contains lovely compacts. Like the blush-ons, the texture and consistency of these is fantastic- smooth, silky, not chalky. The colours vary from Marble Beige Gold, Dual Gold, Marble Pink Gold to a matte beige shade that definitely reminds me of a MAC MSF Natural. At €12.95, these are the most expensive Flormar products on the stand but a MAC MSF will set you back over twice that so really- you're getting a great deal.
As you can see from the pics below, I've picked up three of these so far- the Terracotta Blush-on in Touch of Rose and the Terracotta Powders in Marble Pink Gold and Marble Beige Gold. I just love these so much that I haven't really worn anything else on my cheeks for the last few weeks. Touch of Rose is a gorgeous blush- not sparkly or glittery but sheeny. Marble Beige Gold is a gorgeous neutral blush whereas Marble Pink Gold is a great as a blush or highlight depending on your skintone or personal preference. They are actually so pretty that it's almost shameful to swirl your brush in these and disturb them. LOOK.AT.THEM!
So that's it for Flormar cheeks and as you may be able to tell, I have been very very impressed with the blushes, particularly the Terracotta range. The quality of them is absolutely brilliant- if you visit your nearist stockist (remember to keep checking this list for updates). Check back in tomorrow for the final instalment of #FLORMARWEEK where we will be talking all things NAILS, and I will have achieved everything I set out to achieve at the beginning of this week having promised to show my lovely readers who may not yet have had a chance to visit a Flormar stockist exactly what is in store for you, In terms of your wishlists friends, I really strongly recommend the Terracotta blush-ons or powders, and I would love to know what you think of them if you have either tried or are thinking about trying them.
