Makeup from Turkey, everyone ?

Today I went to Putrajaya to sell my magazines to recycle company. Instead of an office or building, is just a truck with 3 people there. They look bored.

So I gave them job with help me moving all those boxes filled with magazines from taxy. And u know what, all my magazines weighed for 100 kg ! That's damn heavy. Yeah, I love to read. I can buy around 5 pcs magazine per month. They paid me so low, but it's ok as I dont want to keep it. And I help to save the earth ! :D
Then I went to Alamanda, visiting Parkson and I saw a brand called Farmasi.

I looked down on this brand. But my friend wanted to have a look. So we checked if any interesting stuff. I saw the marble blusher and to my surprise, it's very pigmented and smooth. The color is so pretty. I like it.
But I hate it in the same time for some reasons :

- Im not familiar and never heard about how good the makeup is. Im afraid it will harm my skin.

- the name. I feel like put drugs on my face instead of makeup.

- the packaging. Seriously ugly. Just same like Inuovi. O, please put some effort to ur packaging.
People do judge by its cover.

But seriously, I feel like want to have it.
This makeup made in Turkey. I never heard makeup from Turkey. I think US, UK, Japan and Korea should be the best for makeup line.
How about Thailand, Hong Kong, Australia, etc ? I would like to know ur local brand and how the quality is. Really appreciate if someone give me more acknowledge =)
Have a nice weekend everybody.

Considering the fact that the ingredients of most makeup (parafins, olive oil etc) comes from Turkey, you shouldn't be concerned that much. Turkey has some pretty good middle-end makeup brands such as Flormar, Golden Rose and more:) I think you could compare some of these products to Maybelline, L'oreal, Wet n Wild etc.
