Check out these fab new products that landed on my desk from Bloom Cosmetics. The Belle De Jour range, designed by New York makeup artist April Greaves, draws inspiration from Catherine Deneuve in Luis Bunuel’s cult 1966 French film of the same title.
Think contoured eyes, perfect brows, luminous skin and glossy lips.
The collection includes three chunky eye crayons, an eyebrow duo, cream blush duo, super glossy lips and a lip duo. I got to try the chunky Eye Crayon and the Super Glossy Lips…
Eye Crayon in Chocolate (R160)
The perfect duo! This product has a chunky, creamy crayon on one side, followed by a brush on the opposite end, to help you choose your look. If you want dark and and dramatic, just use the crayon on its own, or for a blended look, use the brush applicator and you don’t even need to apply eye shadow!
The product is highly pigmented which means long wearing colour! When I applied it to my skin I also noticed a gorgeous underlying sparkle that’s not over powering and looks pretty when the light catches it!
Super Gloss Lips (R160)
I have so much gloss, it’s really not even funny anymore! But, like I always say, there is nothing like having too much lip gloss. I keep mine spread out all over the place; in my car’s cubby hole, handbag, husbands car, office desk, kitchen counter. I’m obsessed!
I do love this Super Glossy Lips product. It provides a fabulous amount of shine, and slight tingle to the lips, without being too sticky or greasy. It has a lovely minty-fresh smell that I also love!
These two products, together with the new Bloom Belle De Jour range will be available in March 2012 at selected Woolies stores. Be sure to pop in and check it out.
