Benefit Cosmetics has me at their powder blushes or what they call their Box-o-powders. I have Dandelion, Georgia and Coralista and am very happy with them. So when I saw Sugarbomb being launched, my spidey senses were tingling. I had to have it!
And thanks to a little spree (ahem!) before the new year, I am now Sugarbomb-ed!
Isn’t she pretty? Purchased at US$28 (RM99) online and should retail at RM130 at Benefit Cosmetics counters just like the other powders. Not sure if its here yet though so give a shout out if you have seen it 🙂 I’ve got some quick swatches below.
Once I get round to using it properly, I’ll do up a proper review. From preliminary observation, the colours not super shimmery but it isn’t all that sheer as Karen has opined – its quite pigmented going on the skin if you have lighter skintone.
Sugarbomb actually gave me a lovely flush and glow that looked amazing in photos. Despite its pigment, its sheer enough that it makes a nice beginner blush if you are afraid of blush. Its not like Hot Mama which can make you look too flushed even when you’re being careful.
Incidentally, a few of us got Sugarbomb and we all have different skin colouring! So time permitting, we will show you how Sugarbomb can look on different skin tones – it promises to be loads of fun both for us and potentially helpful for you 😀
