Brand: Bloom
Range: Super Glossy Lips
Shade: Patent
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • With a glass-like ultra-vinyl finish, Super Glossy Lips is a lipgloss that has high “grip” that completely smooth and sculpt lipes, whilst  hydrating jojoba oil helps condition lips while they shine.
  • Naturally scented with Peppermint Essential Oil for a fresh minty taste.
  • As this is a pigmented shade you can get by using the slanted applicator for a natural look, but for uneven lip shapes I recommend using a lip brush for extra precision.
  • Patent is described as a cranberry red, which I would not have guessed from looking at the tube until it touched my lips.
  • Verdict: Instant love! The cranberry red gives a youthful pop of colour & the sculpting effects of the vinyl gloss gives the illusion of a fuller pout.  Great for mature lips and those that want more volume in their lips without the tingle of lip plumpers.

Zero. Lip. Lines.
Love.

Brand: Bloom
Range: Natural Flavour Lip Balm
Flavours: Watermelon Crush, Strawberry Squeeze
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Two of Australia’s iconic brands – Bloom Cosmetics and Boost Juice – have collaborated to create a naturally flavoured fruit lip balm.
  • Available in 6 flavours: Strawberry Squeeze, Mango Tango, Banana Buzz, Berry Bang, Watermelon Crush, Tropical Storm
  • Contains beeswax, jojoba seed oil, Vitamin E with natural fruit flavours
  • Packaging is identical to Dermalogica Climate Control & Mentholatum Deep Moist lip balms, which helps with precise application on smaller lips.
  • Big thumbs up for the natural flavour, which tastes literally like the actual juice the flavour’s based on.
  • It gives only light hydration, but I find it really effective as a lip base under lipstick as it provides a waxy sheen that smoothes and holds creamy lipstick formulas in place.

2 for $10 Voucher:  To celebrate the launch, Bloom are offering customers 2 lip balms for only $10! Simply head to www.bloomcosmetics.com, then download and print your exclusive voucher.  Redeemable at David Jones and selected Myer stores.

The lip balm was swatched on lips that have been softened during shower.
During the day it doesn’t add that much moisture, but is a great lip base under creamy lipstick formulas.
Below is a swatch of Eyeko Liptastik Glossy Lip Pen in “Lip Lover” worn over the Bloom lip balm.

BLOOM Lipgloss – Gypsy & Wanderlust (Gypsy Glamour Collection)

Shades: Gypsy & Wanderlust

  • Sheer, lightweight gloss that’s lightly flavoured with Vanilla and Mandarin Essential Oils, although the taste is more subtle than the lipsticks from the same collection.
  • Texture is non-sticky, however it does take several (eg. 3-4) swabs to get a decent application.
  • The drawback is that it doesn’t smooth chapped lips & accentuates them instead, so I’d reserve this for good lip days only.
  • Gypsy is described as a flamingo peach (but it looks nude!), and Wanderlust is described as a peachy beige-pink.
  • Verdict: I recommend the Wanderlust (peach) gloss over the nude, as it gives you an instant pop of refreshing colour, great for relaxed weekends.  Lip gloss fanatics might find it irritating to have to swab 3-4 times per application, although this may be less of an issue during warmer weather.
Even though Bloom calls these high shine finish, it’s only moderate in shine compared to other glosses in my opinion.

  • I’m really impressed by the smooth creamy texture, delicately sweet taste & lightweight finish which they describe as “satin stain”. 
  • Really moisturizing formula with Beeswax and Jojoba Oil, and delicately flavoured with Vanilla and Mandarin Essential Oils.  
  • Nude is described as a creamy natural beige, whereas Peach is described as a pale, muted peach beige. 
  • Verdict: Out of the 2 shades, I’d recommend Nude as it’s a lovely creamy nude that blends more smoothly with your natural lip tone than Peach.  It’s my go-to creamy nude shade at the moment!
The satin stain finish is very comfortable to wear and lightweight without compromising coverage.
