I had never heard of Flormar until Mr BWB, while on a trip in Spain, bought me a couple of their products as birthday gifts last month. So, I was very surprised to discover that the history of the brand goes back to Milan! in the 1980’s production was moved to Turkey and the brand, famous for its nail lacquers, expanded the line and now offers a complete range of cosmetic products with over 800 items! Today, we’ll talk about the Pretty Compact Quarter Eyeshadow.
The eyeshadows are housed in a simple white circular packaging, which isn’t that pretty but helps keep the price down so I won’t complain too much about it. There are several color combinations available, all very basic and easily dupable but pretty, and the one I have is called P043. It contains four shades: a matte white, a matte lilac, a satin Barbie pink and a satin deep reddish purple. The two satin shades also have some shimmers but these are hardly noticeable when applied on the lid. And, as you can see from the swatches, they all have great color payoff.
The texture really surprised me. It is silky soft, smooth and applies and blends like a dream. Such a wonderful texture and pigmentation are not easy to find in eyeshadows at such a low price point, which makes it easy for me to forgive their poor staying power. Although I didn’t have any problem with creasing, they start fading after only about 4 hours on my slightly oily lids if I don’t use a base underneath. With a primer, they easily stay put for the entire day.

Flormar Pretty Compact Quartet Eyeshadow in P043 contains four dupable but pretty eyeshadows in white, pink and purple shades with both satin and matte finishes. The pigmentation is good, the texture very soft and smooth and easily blendable. However, they fade after a few hours if used without a primer and the packaging isn’t very pretty.
