I bought this blush for my friend as a present but I ended up buying one for myself as well! The blush has four different colors: peach, rose, lavender, and pink. When you mix the colors together you get a gorgeous peachy rose color. I really love this blush. I have several blushes from lancome, mac, and smashbox but for some reason I never get tired of this one! I think it's because it's multi colored so the shade is has more depth. Plus the packagaing is super cute as well!! I definitely recommend this blush. My skin is pretty fair (nc25)
and on me this blush shows a shimmery pink/rose color.
As my first benefit box powder, this has me addicted. I received this as a gift and it has become my go-to blush. some people have complained that it is too sheer, but that's what makes it look so natural because i really like to play up my eyes with urban decay eyeshadows. I use benefit's fan brush to apply because that's what the MA used to let me try it on as i was shopping. But don't throw away the brush it comes with, i use that to loosen up the powder and sweep it towards the middle so i waste no product that's stuck on the sides of the tin. Also, the brush works well to turn this into stage makeup, just load up the brush it comes with and with one sweep i have heavy enough color to show up under the bright lights. All the other dancers that i share makeup with compliment it and the packaging, but are a little confused by the 4 colors inside. ;) I've had it for over half a year and the box still looks pretty good, just a little scuffed. I don't carry it around with me normally, just apply in the morning and it lasts all day if i don't touch my face too much. My favorite thing about this blush is its subtle golden shimmer that keeps it from looking harsh/fake in the sunlight. overall, awesome blush with great value for the fill weight. I think this box will last me many years and if it wasn't limited edition i would go out and buy it again.
This blush has so little color pay off, I love it for adding a little color to the top of my cheek bone, almost like a highlight, it gives me a nice glowy look without being all shimmery. I am always reaching for it. I hate the smell of it, but it doesnt affect my opinion of the product itself.. I do really like it
I wasn't sure that this would show up on my MMM skin but it does. It leaves the most pretty hint of peach with a golden glow. I like to apply this over Posietint too.
I love this blush. I generally use NARS Orgasm everyday but the saleslady at Sephora recommended this product as a alternative on days i felt like being different. First off, I love the smell. Slightly sugary and fruity. As far as the color goes, it can be a bit light and powdery esp if you have amped up the bronzer that day. But on normal days, it blends into a perfect pinky/coral. It does have a tad bot of shimmer but i dont mind that at all. Overall, great blush and i def will repurchase as ive already hit pan!
I wanted to like this product as I love Benefit products. It barely showed up on my cheeks and looks too powdery if I layer for a more noticable colour - I did have to use it during the winter when my skin was the palest.
My holy grail blush which matches perfectly my natural coloring without looking made-up. I love it!! And repurchased it 3 times though it's pricey but for me worth every penny!
COLOR/APPLICATION: Benefit's Sugarbomb consists of four different colors, but you really just swirl the whole thing together and come out with a light-ish peachy-pink with not a lot of shimmer. On my NC20ish skin, the color shows up as more of a glow than anything. I have gotten many compliments on my "skin" when I've worn this, so it's definitely subtle! That's what I love about it, that I can wear this with a little bit of light foundation and people tell me I have "amazing" skin -- and I don't have to tell them my secret :P. Though finish is a little bit powdery if not blended properly.
PRICE: $28 at Benefit/Sephora
OVERALL: 4/5 lippies. I love the way this blush looks on my skin, I think the packaging is cute, and I really like the scent as well (though I don't really notice it when it's on my cheeks.) I took off a lippy because $28 is a bit steep for what you get and the brush that comes with it is pretty useless.
BUY AGAIN?: Yes! I've already hit pan on this as I use it almost every day. HG for me.
I really like this product for many reasns. It smells nice, somehow fruity, but also it has that lovable powder-blush scent to it. The mix of colors is gorgeous and perfect for my pale skin tone. The only problem is the brush. It doesn't really work for me, so I just use a different brush, but this blush is worth the price and I would recommend it to anyone!
This blush has remained my favorite for a couple months. It is the most gorgeous color when you swirl a brush over it and then apply it. I've started using the brush that it comes with because it helps ma apply fast! One sweep, a little blending, and you're good to go. This is a little expensive, yes, but I'll be using it until it runs out.
Love the scent, the packaging and the color, but not enough to repurchase it. There is nothing really special about the color. Blush is absolutely my favorite makeup item so I'm always looking for the next great thing and although I like this, a great thing it is not. Don't get me wrong, I don't regret the purchase and I do wear it, but $28 is a lot to spend on a blush that every drugstore brand has a dupe for. A plus is it's very sheer and I feel less likely to over-blush myself (one of my greatest fears is to leave the house looking like a clown). Buy it if you're a collector, skip it if you're not.
