Product Review: b collection by Bloom Cheek Tint in Yarra Valley

During my recent trip to Sydney, I stumbled across the b collection by Bloom counter at Target. I’d heard about this collection but had never had the chance to play around with it in person so I was pretty excited to find the counter (though slightly disappointed that there weren’t many products left on the shelf). As always, I went straight to the blush and immediately reached for the gorgeous peach-pink shade Yarra Valley. I then spent about 5 minutes trying to figure how to operate the packaging. Once I had wrestled it open I fell in love with the formulation of the blush, and the colour.

The formulation is very similar to the new MAC Cremeblend blushes in that the blush applies quite sheer, but is easily buildable. The colour is absolutely gorgeous and looks very natural on fair skin (I built the colour up quite a bit in the above swatch). I’m not sure how well it would show on a darker skin tone, but as it’s buildable I’m sure it could be easily layered show more colour. I am loving this blush and guessing that it will be getting a lot of wear this spring. The b collection by Bloom Cheek Tint in Yarra Valley retails for $19.95 AUD and can be purchased from Target Australia.

Recent Beauty Haul

Pictured above are the products that I purchased before and during my trip to the wonderful city of Sydney. I’m not really sure why I purchased anything before going as the shopping in Sydney is pretty amazeballs, but I did so here we are. I managed to track down some of the old MOR Milk stock at a DFO in Homebush and was absolutely thrilled with my find. This is one of my all time favourite scents, and I am totally bummed that MOR have discontinued it. (Though according to their Twitter account, the closest scents in the current range are Honey or Candied Vanilla Almond) I also purchased the Flourish Body Milk in Saltwater, a Lanolips Lip Ointment in Sunshine, two mini Bloom soaps in Vanilla Bean and Brown Sugar & Fig and a b collection by Bloom Cheek Tint in Yarra Valley. I also picked up a MOR perfume oil in the scent Marshmallow and 3 perfume oils from Flourish in the scents Sugar, Almond Milk (a replacement) and Saltwater. And of course 3 of the b collection by Bloom nail polishes in the shades Seychelles, Santorini and Barcelona.
