Bloom Illuminiser Review and Swatches

Bloom Cosmetics is an award-winning Australian makeup brand with a focus on natural ingredients and a light, playful aesthetic. Founder Natalie Bloom didn't start out with grand business plans; she just wanted to create beautifully designed, high-quality products. Lucky for her, makeup fans fell in love with her creative spirit and now Bloom Cosmetics is a fast-growing brand sold around the world.

Bloom Illuminiser ($36) is a creamy, shimmering highlighter dispensed in fool-proof stick form. The Illuminiser is available in one color, a very pale, pearlized peach shade that looks quite natural and flattering. Unlike some other highlighters that are heavy on glitz and glitter, this subtle product is perfect for daily wear. 

Bloom Illuminiser has been my go-to highlighter for several months because it is just so easy to use. The texture is very creamy, so it's easy to blend the edges for a natural look. Simply slide across the high planes of your face and smooth for instant radiance and contour.

Bloom Illuminiser is said to be a good dupe for NARS Multiple in Copacabana. After looking at swatches online it seems to me that the two products are fairly close, although NARS Copacabana looks a bit pinker in some images. Bloom Illuminiser is only $3 cheaper than NARS Multiple in Copacabana ($36 vs. $39), so I think your shade and formula preferences would be the main factors in choosing to buy one or the other.

I, for one, am in love with Bloom Illuminiser. The creamy texture is easy to apply and the beautiful shade is tons of fun to wear. I'm so happy I discovered this Australian import and I can't wait to explore more of the brand's girly-chic products.

    1. It's just like the Korres Illuminating Powder I wrote about awhile ago, except this is in creamy stick form! I glide it across my cheekbones and temples then blend. I love it because it's super easy to use.

    1. Hi Kim! I actually got this in a MUA swap. I wasn't too excited about getting it bc I had agreed to swap an expensive item for it and I didn't think I realllly wanted another highlighter, but I ended up loving it! I was so happy that worked out.
