Benefit Sugar Bomb Blush Review
Price around Rs1500- 1600
Benefit Sugarbomb is your sugar rush flush ! For a pop of color , swirl these shades together and then sweep on cheeks and face(mmmm…avoid eye area)
Benefit Sugerbomb blush comes in super cute cardboard packaging.
There is a small plastic partition that sits on top of the blush and carries the brush. The brush looks cute but imo, it’s quite useless. I don’t like applying blush with flat rectangular brush.
There are 4 shades in the box – light mauve, peachy pink, coral pink and light peach. When you swatch these 4 shades they look almost similar. All 4 of them have a peachy goldeny undertone.
Overall it’s a pale peachy pink colour with golden sheen.
Benefit SugarBomb gives a very natural l peachy glow with slight goldeny touch to your cheeks. The blush is very sheer. You would have to load your brush to apply it and if you want the colour to really show then you would have to apply the blush two three times. If you dark complexion, the only thing that will show is the fine golden sheen on your cheeks. It would look only has a highlighter if you have wheatish to dusky skin tone.
The powder is definitely finely milled and is very soft but the sturdy packaging keeps the powder safe. I am not a huge fan of its colour payoff because I like strongly pigmented blushes but this gives a beautiful glow to cheeks and you can never go over board with it. You could use this blush every single day and it never looks OTT. Even during the bright day light the golden sheen doesn’t look tacky or shiny. It stays well through out the day on me—the peachy colour fades by evening but the golden sheen still stays and keeps the glow maintained.
Benefit blushes are expensive but there is 12 gm of product. Most blushes have 5-6 gm of product.
Overall, I quite like the product but I have not fallen in love with it. I have to swirl the blush atleast 2-3 times on my cheeks to make it show on my NC 35 skin and it’s a lot of work for me. I like my colours to show in one sweep. But if you are someone who is fair complexioned and likes your blush to give there-but-still-not-there kind of a natural glow on your cheeks, it is a great option. It’s pretty and nice but there is something that doesn’t appeal to me about it.
The things that I don’t like about Benefit Sugarbomb is that it has a strong scent to it and it sometimes gets on me. I am not a huge fan of perfumy blushes. Another thing is that you cannot carry this blush with you. It’s just a cardboard box that would wear off easily with rough handling. May be I was expecting a little more pigment in it…
Here I have sweeped the blush atleast 4-5 times on my cheek and this is how it shows:
