Primark is our one-stop shop for all things fashion, home-ware and occasionally beauty. We’re obsessed with the high quality for low prices and the ease of finding exactly what you need. The last time we popped to our local Primark store we noticed a new beauty brand which caught our eyes immediately, Flormar. Flormar is an Itallian brand who have been established for nearly 50 years. The brand has recently released bronzed essentials for summer, and of course, we had to try out a few pieces.
Today we are reviewing the Face & Body Bronzing Powder – £8.95, Liquid Illuminator £8.95 and the Bronzed Baked Powder £8.95. All sold in Primark stores nationwide.
Bronzed Baked Powder.
The first thing we noticed about this bronzer is the size. It is huge (33g). The packaging is sturdy and hard wearing, perfect for travel. You open the compact and there is also a large mirror. The scent isn’t too overpowering, however you are instantly taken away to a tropical island. The smell of sunscreen and coconuts is perfect. The shade itself is universal,we’ve got super pale skin (porcelain foundation shades) and with a light had it meshed perfectly into our skin tone, and a friend of ours who has a much deeper skin tone was also able to get that natural look too.
This is the perfect bronzer to create a natural warm look, and you may never run out of the product ever. Perfect for travel and day to day use.
Sadly this shade was a tiny bit too dark for our skin as a liquid highlighter however, as a liquid blush it worked phenomenally. If you are a fan of the cult classic blusher Nars Orgasm, you’d also be obsessed with this. The subtle rosy glow, and making us look healthier and happier too. It applied stunningly and actually felt more like a light moisturizer to the skin than a makeup product. We did use over the top of foundation.
If you can’t use this illuminatior as a highlight, it is an incredible blush, with a formula as stunning as the shade.
Baked Bronze Glow Powder.
If you need to purchase anything from Primark, it has to be this highlighter. Everything about this powder is out of this world. The shade, the formula, the texture, the pigmentation, the packaging – it is all insane. You could expect this kind of glow from a £40 highlighter. For a baked product, this isn’t drying on the skin at all, nor is it chunky. In all honesty, we may have to write letters to all the other highlighters we own and apologize for now we will be neglecting them. The shade is totally universal, and honestly, this could be the best makeup product ever.
Final thoughts on Flormar.
Drugstore price point, highend / luxury quality. Everything is so beautifully formulated. We particularly loved (if you couldn’t tell already) the Baked Bronze Glow Powder. It is definately a ‘product of the year’ contender.
Are we alone in these thoughts?
One of our favourite beauty babes Steph Toms also tried out the range and as you can see from the video, she also found the same results as us.. that Flormar is your future go-to brand.
