Review: Essence Bloom Me Up! lipstick, eyeshadow and brush

10:39

Hey Beauties!

Today's review is actually more of an impulse buy. I did buy the brush earlier, because I had it in mind before, but the eyeshadow and lipstick were purely impulsive. Let's see if I can save you some money, haha :).


I bought Essence bloom me up eyeshadow in the shade 01 Bloomylicious, lipstick in the shade 01 Rose it up! and blush brush

I bought the blush brush, because I don't have any brush that looks like this. Lame, I know. I'm telling you, my purchases sometimes don't have any logical objectification. The brush is wooden, with metal top and the bristles are actually really soft. It's fairly small and the bristles are straight cut. I don't find it nice for applying blush, even though it's supposed to be blush brush. It also didn't do much for a cream blush, but I guess, it always seems better to blend those with fingers. I find it the best to be used as a foundation brush. It works good for that and the bristles are gentle, yet short enough to get pretty even application and blending on the entire face. I suppose it would also be good for mineral makeup. Also not the best for powder or bronzer. I just find it awkward because of the straight cut. 

I can't remember the exact price of it, it's something around 3€, I think.



I chose the lipstick, because the color of the packaging was so pretty. The standard packaging of Essence lipsticks. If the lipstick would look like the packaging, I would be over the moon. Sadly, not the case. The shade 01 Rose it up! looks like a really pale pink, but applies extremely sheer with a white tone to it.  The texture is extremely moisturizing ans shiny. Almost like a tinted lip balm, which I do love. But the shade shows up like a really sickly pale pink with a white undertone to it, which is just not flattering at all. It also has a very tiny shimmer, which makes it that more shinier. The smell.. my God, it just smells sooo good. I cant' put my finger on it...something like a sweet citrus. So delicious. Such a shame, if the shade would be a little more colorful it would be perfect, but I really dislike the shade. I'm sorry for this weird photo, because my lips are really dry now. I really wanted to make a photo of it on my lips, but it did stick to my dry patches. 

There's 4 grams of lipstick and costs 2.19€.




The eyeshadow is in the shade called 01 Bloomylicious. In this limited edition, there's also shimmer powder, but I decided that the eyeshadow is smaller and looks pretty much the same as the shimmer powder. Plus it's cheaper. So, I got it, because I wanted to use it as a highlighter for either cheeks or inner corners of the eye. In the plastic pot, it looks like a pink toned beige shade, but on the skin it looks like a very pale pink to white eyeshadow. The shimmer is really small, so I think this will easily go as an highlighter, because it's not to obvious. Other than that, nothing too special about it. 

There's 2.5 grams of product and costs 2.19€.



Upper: eyeshadow, Lower: lipstick

To be really honest, I don't think I needed any of these products and none has impressed me so far. Maybe I'll find a better use for my brush. I don't think you're missing anything with this particular products.

Have you gotten anything from the Essence Bloom Me Up?

  1. I thought the pink brush was supposed to be a stippling brush -for applying liquid foundation, but I also saw that essence said it was for blush? I wanted to get it, but it sold out fast. Maybe it's best I missed it, I don't think I would use it very often...

    1. I thought so too. I think it's a bit too dense for a stippling brush, but it works for foundation:) I don't think it's a must have:)

  2. Tako šminka kot senčka sta mi žal premalo pigmentirani, vsaj za moj okus.

  3. Za čopič res ne vem zakaj ga reklamirajo kot čopič za rdečilo... za kremno bi že lahko prišel prav, ampak mi zgleda bolj kot stippling brush, ki se ponavadi uporablja za tekočo podlago. :D

    1. Jaz sem mislila, da je za kremno rdečilo, pa mi je bil nekam neroden za to. Stippling brush je po navadi bolj redek, ta pa ima precej goste dlakice. Ampak meni je fajn za podlago:)

    Točno tale šminka me je mikala, ampak neee zdaj sem si premislila, vidim da je preveč bela :) Eno tako že imam, pa je ne uporabljam ravno.
