Flormar Supershine Lipstick in 523; Review, Photos & Swatches
Product Claims/Description According to Flormar.com
It provides the lips with wet, full and ultra shiny look by its creamy structure. It moisturizes the lips with the Shea Butter it contains.
PACKAGING – I actually like the packaging of this one. It has a vintage feel, with a pearlescent finish. I also like the gold tube, logo and the rim that holds the entire packaging altogether. The cap fits onto the tube securely without any hassle as well. It has a unique shape, although despite this, people may find this quite bulky but I don’t really mind since I have a huge makeup kit.
SHADE – Like I said before, this lip color leans more on the shade of ‘Coral’, only warmer. What you see is what you get with this lip product. You get the same opacity when swatched or when applied. It is a bit frosty though, but not as overwhelming as Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Peachy Scene (IMO).
Oh, and I rummaged through all of my lipsticks and I found a couple of coral shades in my stash..
Revlon Coralberry is pretty close only it’s a bit warmer than 523, then Maybelline’s Color Sensational Lipstick in Coral Crush is a bit more pink and it’s a bit harder to apply since it does’t glide on smoothly onto my lips.
FORMULATION/CONSISTENCY – This lip product is quite creamy and very moisturizing, perhaps due to the Shea Butter. It has a bit of a frosty finish which I believe contributes to the ‘SuperShine’ factor. I like how creamy and opaque it is. You get the true color of the lip product at just one layer. One thing I noticed though, is maybe due to its ingredients, or whatever, the lipstick itself is really soft. I feel like I’m going to break it anytime soon.
APPLICATION – This lip product glided on my lips quite easily. It didn’t feel gritty considering that it’s a frosty/super shine lipstick. It did, however, emphasized most of the fine lines of my lips, despite the fact that I just applied a lip balm prior to applying this lip product (like always). On the other hand, I didn’t find it terribly annoying/overbearing, because I still believe that this lip product is still very wearable. With proper lip exfoliation, you can rock this lip color easily.
PERFORMANCE/LONGEVITY – I had some transferring issues with this one. It did transfer, a lot. I didn’t feel as though it settled on to my lips completely. It was moisturizing but it also felt quite heavy. Or maybe perhaps it was because of the lip balm that I applied prior to applying this lipstick. Never the less, it still didn’t feel as comfortable despite how moisturizing it was. Maybe it’s just me. but regardless, it still looks FAB Oh and this one lasted on me for approximately three hours. It did not stain my lips, and it faded gradually as well. I did not experience any bleeding/feathering. It didn’t feel dry or tacky as time passes which was quite impressive.

SCENT – With regards to the scent, I’m afraid this lipstick is quite disappointing. It has a mixture of peppermint scent along with a vintage lippie scent. The smell wears off though as soon as you apply it onto your lips.

All in all, I still think that this lip product is really a good purchase, I have nothing against it. It’s a gorgeous shade and anybody can pull it off easily just as long as they exfoliate. The shade is very wearable, especially during summer (which is why I bought it -_-) and it has three purposes too! It moisturizes and it serves as your lipstick & your lip gloss.
Yes I think so. It gives a good pop of color to every look and it’s not too bright yet it’s not that toned toned down either.
So those are my thoughts about the said lip product. How about you? Do you like coral shades? Do you like shiny lip colors? Let me know!
