Origins Blooming Bold Lipsticks Review and Swatches

*Lipsticks gifted for consideration. Thoughts my own & honest.

Origins is a well-known skincare brand. So far I don’t think they have released any makeup-like products, except for a tinted sunscreen. Blooming Bold lipsticks are the first color makeup to Origins line and today I’m very excited to review the formula and 5 shades for you!!

Origins Blooming Bold Lipsticks

These lipsticks are advertised as long-wearing with bold, rich and full-coverage coloraturas that will condition and hydrate lips during the day. Available in 24 shades varying from a vast amount of neutrals, nudes to some brights and deep, vampy colors. No other animal ingredients, except for cruelty-free honey and beeswax. Priced $20 / 20€ at Stockmann.fi

Packaging

I like the bullets of these lipsticks a lot, I just I wish there was just an added feature of luxury like a click sound or a magnetic closure. The lipsticks still feel weighty, not cheap at all. The floral pattern on the bullet is pretty nice, but the best feature is the pattern color which indicates each lipstick shade. I love it when lipstick shades are clear and easy to detect, especially if you have more than one from the same range.

Texture and Finish

I feel the formula of Origins lipsticks is excellent, but not 100% even all across the range. It might be just this shade, but I feel that 21 Wild Flower bleeds in the cracks of my lips. Not severely, but I would wear this particular color (like most red lipsticks) with a lip pencil lining and perhaps underneath for more longevity. 24 Black Tulip behaves strangely as it’s much more sheer than the rest I’ve swatched. You need to do a couple of swipes to build intensity and it still doesn’t look as intense as the others.

Otherwise the formula is smooth, pigmented and opaque. Just one swipe and you get beautiful, opaque intensity and color. The Origins Blooming Bold lipsticks feel moisturizing on the lips - usually lipsticks of this kind slide everywhere, but Origins colors won’t slip or swipe away by themselves. The finish looks and feels creamy, natural, non-matte. No staining.

Final Thoughts

Overall Origins Blooming Bold Lipsticks are a winner for me, but I’d recommend to see the colors in person as there is a vast range of nudes and deeper shades for most skin tones. The lipstick formula is among the best I’ve tried in a little while. What I’ve played at the counter the shades seemed to swatch opaque, except for the 24 Black Tulip. It’s still a very pretty shade I wear a lot. I’m very excited to see if Origins will extend this line, I’d especially like to see mascaras or base products in the future.
