I’m doing a little jig…I should get a web cam so you can watch me do my little dance on Friday. Oh my god next week is Christmas how did that happen? I gotta finish up a ton of last minute stuff this weekend plus I have to do food shopping on Monday, groan, I guess I have to as my fridge is whistling dixie.
I’m rocking Benefit SugarBomb today. Actually I dunno why but I wanna sing Sex Bomb, Sex Bomb! When ever I say Sugarbomb…..Tom Jones fans around here? Anyone? I think I heard a pin drop. I inherited my love of Tom Jones from my dear old mum. I take her to see him in concert ever year and it’s quite the event. 50 and 60 somethings tossing their knickers and bras at him as he sings his little heart out, bless.
Have a little jump to hear the word on Benefit Sugarbomb.
Well…Benefit went a little tamer this year. After the big event release of Benefit Coralista where the Muse proceeded to run in circles and hang from the ceiling, they tamed down their latest powder release this year. Benefit SugarBomb takes it back to the roots of most of the popular powder blushes and remains subtle and sheer on the face. I believe Dallas and Coralista and the most pigmented of Benefit’s facial powders and SugarBomb happens to fall in the middle of being subtle yet pigmented enough to make a nice impact but nothing overly done.
The powder is made up of four shades of color but for the most part it remains very peachy which is fine by me as I adore a pop of peach on my face. Shimmering shades of rose, pink, plum, and peach blend together to create a soft focused flush of peach on cheeks and face. The plum is a bit of the odd man out but honestly after the shades are all blended you can’t rightly notice you have anything plum on your face.
I’m debating with myself what to call the finish. It’s very slightly frosty and ever so light in the shimmer department. The overall effect is simple a very subtle flush of color on cheeks with a tiny hint of a frosty, shimmery finish. Color can easily be built up to create more of an impact but honestly nothing too dramatic as the product isn’t pigmented enough to create anything but a softer look.
Overall, if you weren’t keen on Coralista (god I hope no one exists that didn’t LOVE it) you may find that SugarBomb is a bit friendly in terms of softer color. Anyone who likes a subtle highlight of color will be pleased with the results on this one. I liked it very much. It isn’t my fav Benefit powder by any means but it’s nice enough to get excited about in my humble opinion. I can see myself using this on days I want to have a bit of color on my face but nothing that’s overly done. For my look below I went so far as to use it on my face and my lids…gotta get creative with the product peeps. I likey and deem it a worthy addition to the Benefit Powder family.
If you’re a lover of Benefit this is one you’ll want to own.
