Review: Bloom Foundation Stick

Hello lovelies!
Hope you're having a wonderful day!
I have a product review to share with you so I hope you enjoy!




A little background on Bloom Cosmetics:

Bloom is an Australian beauty brand founded in 1993. Their products consist of quality botanical ingredients such as Evening Primrose, Jojoba oil and Orange Blossom.



Unfortunately, Bloom only have two shades of the foundation stick. Base 1 (A lighter tone for pale skin) and Base 3 (A neutral mid tone).

It's a medium to full coverage foundation, containing Jojoba and Rice Bran Oil to soothe and hydrate the skin.

Firstly, I like the packaging, it's nice and sleek.The colour matches me well and I would say it is a medium to full coverage foundation but buildable. So if you feel the need to apply a bit more over blemishes or redness, you can absolutely do that without it looking too heavy.

I didn't find that it caked up in any areas of my face or sink into pores which is a big positive.


Shade Base 1

Keep in mind that I didn't apply any products that would prolong the wear of the foundation as I wanted to see how it coped on its own.

Surprisingly, it didn't cling to any dry patches on my skin.

It lasted pretty well throughout the day without any sort of primer, setting powder or finishing spray.



I've found the most effective way to apply it is straight from the stick to your face and using a makeup brush to blend it all in.

The Zoeva 102 brush does an excellent job of blending in creamy foundations.
I purchased mine from, http://www.beautybay.com/.

                                     
               




Pros
Non drying formula.
Lasts all day.
Doesn't crease, sink into pores or fine lines.
Great for travelling.
Easy to apply, especially if you're in a hurry.
Buildable coverage.
Mild scent.


Cons
Only two shades therefore would not suit many skin tones.
I feel there are other foundations on the shelves that would give you the same great results and with more shades to choose from.  



Overall, I think this is a lovely foundation.

I like that it contains botanical ingredients to assist in hydrating the skin.
I haven't had the best experiences with foundation sticks as they've all been too drying so I was pleasantly surprised.
