Bloom is currently on sale in larger Superdrug stores in the UK, and very lovely it is too. Its a bit expensive (or perhaps it just feels too expensive to be on a poxy stand) but it seems to be generally quite a pleasant and inoffensive brand.
I got these two Bloom Cheek tints in Bronze and Rosie (Tan and Rose) a while back:
Bloom’s lightweight, quick-drying Cheek Tint gives cheeks a healthy hint of colour. Its non-greasy formula is easy to apply and
blend, and won’t clog pores.
They come in squeezy tube type applicators, with brushes on the end. The best applicator for this kind of thing? Mmm its not bad you know? Its better than the Stila pens which I always end up clicking too much product out of.
Bronze is quite a yellow ochre type bronze – it rubbed in fine but it is a slightly odd shade. I wonder how this would fare of fair skinned ladies…
Rosie is a pink – neutral, not very offensive, quite easy to wear. Not outstanding but its nice.
Once this dries (quite quickly) it leaves a light, long lasting stain. However – it is very sheer. The colour is buildable but its very liquid.
Rosie on my cheek – its quite natural:
As a stain on my lips its not up to much – its just too liquid without enough pigment to make a real difference. Its also a little drying once its set:
I got these when they were half price in Superdrug (£6) and they are fine for a on the go top up but by no means the best gel or cheek tints I have tried.
