Bloom’s new Lip Duo’s hit the shelves

Wednesday, 5 October 2011

If you’re a fan of Aussie cosmetics brand Bloom, you’ll be glad to know they’ve just added a gorgeous new lip product to their line up, Bloom Lip Duo lipstick and Lip gloss in one.

Bloom Lip Duos, R170 each

This cute little multi-tasker teams a long lasting lippie with a perfectly matched lip gloss. The lipstick contains nourishing coconut oil, shea butter and jojoba oil, while the lip gloss makes use of moisturising macadamia nut oil and antioxidant vitamin E.

We got two of the six new shades to test; Rain & Puddles (a mauve-toned nude) and Moon & Stars (a bright poppy red).

Rain & Puddles is on the left. It looks super-scary and dark in the tube, but lightens up dramatically on your skin.

Shot with flash. You’ll see Rain & Puddles looks less gloomy and Moon & Stars is a true ‘tomatoey’ yellow-based red.

So, if you’re looking for a hydrating pop of colour and gloss, Bloom’s got your back.
