Chronicles of Favorites: Benefit's Sugar Bomb Blush

>> Friday, January 4, 2013

Best. Blush. Ever.

I don't think I've ever said that about a blush. That is primarily because all my life, I was led to believe that the choice of blusher should be dependent on what one's preference of the color pink is. In my case, I gravitated towards fuchsia-hued blushes which I couldn't wear so much because it throws off my skintone.

Sugarbomb is Benefit's quadruple colored blusher which I discovered through a palette called Sugarlicious. I wasn't too excited about it at first --- because there was a purply-looking segment in the blusher and I was like -- what's that for? As it turns out, this was the real 3D blush, in my opinion, over Benefit Bella Bamba.

  • Call it age but I am leaning towards natural, multi-dimensional blushes. When I first swirled my Charm brush onto the rose, plum, peach and pink powders, I was wary the peach would look off BUT it was such a delight to be having multiple shades on the cheeks and look the most natural of all. 
 Blush should be undeterminable in your face --- this means you shouldn't be able to tell where it begins and where it ends. | Taken in Japan where everyone is flawless and I wasn't! :S

 I think I was still sleepy during picture time.

FOTD back in October. I've been using this ever since!

  • Decent staying power. Though I do have to lug my Sugarlicious palette everywhere, even to Tokyo, I was happy to discover that I didn't have to retouch more than once a day. 
  • Color payoff is amazing -- as you can see that is pretty much how it appears on the box and it's the same on the cheeks. The confluence of all four shades is a wonderful mystery to me but I'm a happy customer.
  • Versatility. I'm not sure I've reached out for another blusher since Sugarbomb and I got married. I use it for day, I use it for night time and I use it pretty much everywhere I go, whatever my makeup theme is. This is probably the most perfect color for someone like me who has yellow undertones, slightly medium to fair complexion and with light brown - red hair.
  • Price point is at Php 1,600 and available at Benefit Greenbelt 5, Glorietta 4 and Shangri La Plaza. I don't mind paying premium for this one because you heard it from me: It is worth it.
  • If you own Benefit Hervana, I would assume it would be of the same league.

What's your take on Benefit Sugarbomb?

I am a Vegan so I consume A LOT of natural sugars from fruit but even in my tea or anything calling for sugar..there is nothing better than real sugar! Artificial sweeteners are sooo incredibly bad for you and do much more damage than just natural sugar. Very good and informative hub!
