InStyle - April 2022
Everybody has their makeup must-haves, and for me, blush is in the top three. There's nothing like a flush of color to make me look alive, healthy, and in my opinion, the prettiest version of myself.
Bloomeffects Tulip Tint Lip & Check Lip Balms, a two-in-one product, has skin-replenishing ingredients such as jojoba seed oil, sweet almond oil, and shea butter. To top it off, each blush is infused with the proprietary Dutch tulip complex that blurs fine lines. I mean, my old blush could never.

Not only is the formula great for my skin and lasts all day, but I really appreciate how eco-friendly the brand is.
