I was at Parramatta shops today, making my way from Myer to Priceline when my eyes caught on something colourful, something sparkly, something suspiciously looking like a makeup stall! Could it be? Yes, it was a new makeup stall called Flormar, and one that I had not seen in Australia before.
|You'll have to excuse the poor quality of these pics, they were taken on my phone.|
When I approached the stall all I could see where rows and rows of nailpolishes, a huge choice of lipcolours, and a pretty decent selection of eye and face products. I was literally overwhelmed by choice. I started swatching away before I even noticed the price, which started from $5.99. What The? These looked like great quality products, how can they be so cheap?
At this point the lovely sales assistant came to my rescue. I started questioning her like crazy, but she patiently answered all my questions. I found out that Flormar is not a new makeup brand at all, it has actually been established in 1970 in Milan but now is made in Turkey and they have stores all over the world. It has just come to Australia, and according to their Australian website they have a store at Castle Towers and of course now in Parramatta. I do hope they open more stores because the products were just ah-may-zing. If you live near the area, you have to check them out.
Like a good beauty blogger, I purchased a few things to try out. It’s called research…
I’m extremely impressed with the quality of the products, and with this price you can’t go wrong. I bought 3 Terracotta face powders (they remind me of a certain brand’s mineralize face powders) for $14.99 each and a lipstick for $9.99.
Here are some pics and swatches for you. I will use them in FOTDs in the future to show you how they look on the face. My camera had trouble focusing properly, I think the sparkles made it freak out!

Have you tried anything from Flormar before? Will you be checking it out?
For those of you around Parramatta, the stall is opposite Wittners shoes store on level 1 of Westfields.
