Well well, Spring is definitely in the air! Between my love for the florals and fauna you can find through out Hawaii and the gorgeous weather we’ve been having I can’t believe how quickly this year is already flying by. Besides the bright shades surrounding me (and my allergies that come with the season), I am drooling over the gorgeous cosmetics that companies are rolling out this year. Bright hues of pinks and corals, I’m in awe over the pretty of it all. It’s absolutely no secret that I am a huge fan of ColourPop. It’s been about a year since I placed my first order for the squishy and pigmented treats that I adore so and I have been enjoying all of the products I currently own. I’m so addicted, that when I seen the ColourPop In Bloom Collection rolled out, I knew I just had to have it. The collection was created by Celebrity Makeup Artist Jamie Greenberg and includes a combination of bright shades that are Red Carpet ready for Spring and Summer.
This gorgeous collection is packaged together in a beautiful box (perfect for the theme). In Bloom is definitely a “bloom” of wonder and a great gift for yourself or anyone who loves makeup. It sports three full sized blushes and three full sized lipsticks that are limited edition to this collection. Retailing for $39.00, this set is a great starter for anyone looking to try out the blushes or lipsticks from ColourPop for the first time.
Shades included in the set:
- Tongue Tied (described as a bright/warm coral shade with a matte finish)
- Double Dip (described as a soft peach with subtle highlights – satin pearl finish)
- Hysterical (described as a cool-toned plum pink with a matte finish)
- Sweet Thing (described as a cool-toned medium true pink/cream finish)
- Freshman (described as a hot pink/cream finish)
- Frenemie (electric warm toned coral/cream finish)
While I did own quite a bit of shadows and lipsticks, I haven’t had the opportunity to try out any of the new blushes since their release, so I was really excited to take them for a test drive. Like their shadows, the blushes have a squishy, cream like texture and I have found that while applying with my fingers work well, I have had a lot of luck and easy application with my ELF Small Stipling brush for a nice airbrushed look that leaves my cheeks looking sunkissed and flushed. Like the eye shadows from ColourPop these blushes have pretty nice staying power as I can apply in the morning without setting it and find hours later that you can still see them on my cheeks.
Double Dip has been a favorite highlight for my cheeks and cupid’s bow the last week and I absolutely love Hysterical on my cheeks. Since I don’t use coral shades as often, I am still using Tongue Tied with a light hand, but overall – I’m impressed with these blushes and have been enjoying them. If you were or are a fan of the Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blushes, I think you’ll like these. The texture and application process remind me of those a lot and they were a favorite of mine for quite some time. I think these will be taking its place.
Sweet Thing is my favorite out of the three lippies included in this collection. It is a gorgeous pink that works well with my skin tone and is a wearable, everyday type shade that could be used by any skin tone. Out of all the shades, I think this one will be a favorite of mine to come. As described it is a cool toned medium pink with a cream finish.
Freshman is a fun hot pink lipstick with a cream finish. This lipstick offers a gorgeous look that is bold but not overdone, over powering or too much. I think this particular lippy could lend for a great supplement if you don’t like red lips but want a punch of color. This is a gorgeous shade for my fair skinned friends.
Overall I think this collection is definitely a great one. Offering you great color payoff, gorgeous shades and fun to use product, the In Bloom collection has been a favorite of mine now since I received my order. I would love to see ColourPop offer some of these shades (if not all of them) in their permanent line so that it can be purchased individually – especially since I know I’ll be using up some of these products now that they are favorites. You can’t beat the price point that this brand offers and the selection of shades in such a short time since the company was founded is great. While using the product may take a little getting used to, I enjoy them all nonetheless.
