Because I'm a jerk, I never got round to posting about the Colourpop In Bloom collection when it was available. But since it's all swatched and ready, here it is - hopefully it pops up in blog sales or some of the colours return some day!
In Bloom contains two blushes, a highlighter and three lipsticks in a beautifully patterned box sleeve. A tray slides out with space to securely house each product; it's all very well made and makes the set seem far more luxurious than the modest price tag (it retailed for $39USD) would suggest.
First up, the cheek products: they're housed in screwtop white jars with clear inserts in the lids to show the colour inside.
The texture is much like the eyeshadow products, malleable and clay-like; if you press a finger to the surface it will dent, not spring back. ColourPop recommend applying their cheek products with fingers for fuller coverage, or with a flat synthetic shader brush or duo fiber brush for a sheerer finish. I like using ELF's duo fiber stipple brush for a really airbrushed effect.
Next are the Lippie Stix, which are a product I've reviewed many times now and they remain a firm favourite.
The Lippie Stix have a gorgeous chocolate chip cookie scent - it smells just like the Rainbowlicious Chocolate Chip scrub to my nose, which means I'm basically in heaven every time I pop the cap off one of these. SO good.
In this set, the colours are all in the cream formula which can be a bit hit or miss for me. Some of the colours feather on me, while others can bunch up on the inner part of my lips (SO annoying!). As usual though, the texture, colour pay off and application are great. All of them have a very subtle tackiness and a smooth, slightly creamy texture. They are pretty forgiving of flaws, good news for those who struggle to keep pesky lip flakes away! I didn't find any of the colours in this set drying.
Frenemie is described as an 'electric warm-toned coral with a cream finish.' Electric is right - this sucker is BRIGHT! I absolutely love Frenemie and for that colour I'd forgive a lot, but I did experience bunching of product along my lips after three hours of wear. It lasted six and a half hours in total and stained strongly.
