This winter, I have been trying out darker lip shades and I have been loving it. When I was over at the flormar store in Diagonal Mar to get myself some foundation {utter fail with that btw because the sales rep helped colour match me & then I went home and it was waaaay too dark in natural lighting for me}, I picked up a dark plum lip pencil which is the Flormar Waterproof Lipliner in 224.

It is your standard lip pencil which requires sharpening. Honestly, this sometimes puts me off when I'm getting ready in a rush. But well, that's how loads of lip liners are so I just live with it. That being said, I still prefer it when pencils which require sharpening come with their own sharpener in the cap as I just find this more comfortable. So packaging wise, I'm not a big fan.

Shade 224 of the Flormar Waterproof Lipliner is a very pigmented deep plum which I think looks lovely for the Autumn and Winter months {if you like the vampy look}. It is very easy to apply and goes on smoothly but feels quite drying on the lips if you are going to fill in your entire lip and not just outline. So what I always do is apply some lipbalm before applying the lip pencil and add a lipstick on top. 

The staying power of the lipliner is quite impressive but definitely not waterproof. To try it out I wore just the lipliner without any lipstick for an evening out and it lasted for about 3 hours with all my drinking and eating which I think is definitely not bad. I think this lipliner in a light everyday shade would be a great addition to anyone's collection. As for this specific shade, I really don't care for the staying power because I've got a long wearing lipstick which I apply over it, so either way it lasts me a long time.

Overall Summary
Price - €3.90.
Likes - price, staying power, pigmentation.
Dislikes - packaging.
Verdict - will be purchasing an everyday shade.
Available - Flormar store {Spain}.

Have you tried the Flormar Waterproof Lipliner or any other flormar product? Any recommendations?
