Origins is making a flowery entrance back into makeup, with the new Blooming Bold™ Lip Collection! This is a beautiful range of bold-hued lipsticks and sheer lip balms that is sure to please even the pickiest of us.
While we usually associate Origins with amazing masks and skincare, they’re now back in the makeup game. When I saw photos of the Blooming Bold™ Lip Collection on Origins’ Instagram, I swooned. Let’s start with the colors…gorgeous! And the formula? So. Wearable. True to their values, Origins has found a way to incorporate reclaimed flower waxes, flower honeys and essential oils. This collection is formulated without parabens, mineral oil, paraffin and microcrystalline wax. And how extra is the packaging?
The Blooming Bold™ Lipsticks are available in 24 shades; I was sent five to try, and I’m impressed with how good these lipsticks feel on the lips. Seriously, this is such a nice change from a matte lipstick, especially for winter. The lipsticks have a very soft, creamy consistency that is super hydrating and comfortable. The color is saturated, with good wear time. I definitely will be picking up a few more colors (Pretty Petunia looks like a must-have!).
I’m also a huge fan of the Blooming Sheer™ Lip Balms. I love a tinted lip balm for a softer hint of color, and also to condition my lips. There are 8 Blooming Sheer™ Lip Balm shades, ranging from Nude Nectar (sheer) to Night Bloom, a deep blackberry. The colors drench your lips with hydration, and have a slightly glossy finish. The effect is “your lips, but better”. I love the light floral scent!
