Review of BeneFit Cosmetics Sugarbomb by blyss
I'm always a sucker for blushes and I had great results with Coralista so I went in with high hopes for Sugarbomb. I tried it, left it in the store, and I'll be reviewing it as a blush.
The blush comes with an interesting twist of sorts... you twirl your brush to come up with a blended shade of purple, pink, peach, and rose. I'm a MAC NC30, MUFE F&B 32, BB Sand with neutral golden undertone and this had no pigmentation on me. On the pale NW counter MA, this looks pale and glowy... the colour of a sheer peachy pink. I didnt detect a lot of shimmer in the blush on either one of us so it isn't over the top. Since it had zilch pigmentation on me, I didn't even bring it home to try... I already did that with Georgia Peach and Dandelion. I prompty returned or swapped them away within a few days. So I was hoping not to repeat that mistake again.
Aside from the lack of pigment, the container is the signature Benefit blush box. It's a cutesy high walled cardboard container. It comes with a fairly useless blush brush. Even though it's made out of cardboard, it's pretty darn sturdy and my Dallas has stood up to a few years of use. The only draw back is that it's really hard to get a real brush into the corners of the blush so you have this really HUGE indent in the middle of the blush and nearly full sides.
If you're a pale NW or NC, this might work for you but if you have medium skintone (like NC30 and darker), I would pass. It has no pigmentation!
