A while back I wrote about a lipstick that I got last time I was in Armenia, it cost me approx $2 and I couldn't find a replacement anywhere. This time when we went back to Armenia I went on the hunt for it of course! While I didn't find the exact same shade, I did haul quite a few other lippies in similar colours at bargain prices. Here's what I got.
Left to right
- Golden Rose lipstick in #127
- Flormar lipstick in #302
- Flormar lipstick in #315
- Classics lipstick in #255
- Golden Rose lipstick in #56
- Golden Rose lipstick in #94
Here are the swatches in the exact same order as above.
All the lipsticks are extremely creamy and moisturising. They also last around 4-5 hours on my lips before fading. The Flormar lipsticks were the most expensive, I don't remember exactly how much due to the currency conversion but I know it was definitely less than $10. The rest all cost my around $2-3 each. Bargain! Unfortunately none of these brands are available in Australia (Flormar used to have a stall in Sydney but not anymore), however these are all widely available in Europe so if you come across them definitely give them a try!
I'll leave you with a few shots from my time in Armenia. As I have family there I've been to Armenia many many times, so I don't tend to take many photos there any more, but here are a few that I wanted to share.

|See, my name is pretty common in Armenia. This was a store and for some reason it was called Lilit. I don't even know what they sold as it was closed down/or not yet opened, couldn't tell which.|

Hope you enjoyed this post! And let me know what you think of the lippies. Am I lipstick obsessed? Yeah, maybe slightly.
