Benefit SugarBomb

benefit sugarbomb

Good Morning and Happy Monday Everyone!

How was your weekend? Mine was crazy busy! I see everyone is having a good time doing some “virtual” shopping on The Body Shop in order to enter my fun giveaway. Good times! I’m enjoying your replies. I have another giveaway upcoming shortly for you but until than how about I tell you all about my latest lemming?

Check it!

If you’re debating on what to spend your Sephora Beauty Insider Gift Card on here’s one for the haul. Brand new Benefit SugarBomb is Benefit’s latest facial powder.

benefit sugarbomb 12

Made up of shades of rose, shimmering pink, soft pump and peach this one sounds like something the Muse needs to get her hands on. WANT!

What do you think?

For me since they included “sugar” in it’s name I’m assuming it’ll be a shimmery finish. The colors on Sephora aren’t looking incredible but I think it’ll be stunning when I actually see it in person. I’m just hoping it’s not a frosty finish as I don’t pull that off on my face so well.

How are you feeling about Benefit SugarBomb?

Worthy of a haul?

Any favs from the Benefit Facial Powder range?

Tell the Muse!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

      any favs from Benefit facial powders? I adore coralista!

  • irini

    i live in greece so i have to order online and its not the easiest thing :'( lucky you guys!but i love love love hoola!well,everyone does i guess 😛

    • the Muse

      hi irini!

      oh what a pain 🙁 sorry to hear hun! 🙁 I like hoola too 🙂 it isn’t a fav but I enjoy it with a little cheek stain under it 🙂

  • Chelsea

    It happens to contain all of the colors that look good on me … I may have to give this one a try.

    • the Muse

      chelsea kinda reminds me slightly of coralista with all that peach…think it might be a go 😀 can’t wait to see it up close and personal!

  • Sasha

    I STILL haven’t gotten my Sephora GC… am I the only one? I love Dandelion and Thrrrob so of course I am wanting this!

    • the Muse

      hi sasha maybe give them a call? I know they are going slow getting them out to avoid the site crashing 🙂

      I adore both thrrob and dandelion myself 🙂

  • Melissa

    hummmmmmm do I need it – might have to wait and see it in person. Many moons ago I thought dandelion was the only blush I ever needed. I don’t even have one in my stash now but I do brush on some dallas every now and then.

    • the Muse

      hey melissa def need to see it in person myself as I’m scared it’ll look frosty!

  • kristine

    W-O-W! This looks nice. I waaaaaaant this! Hehe.

    I have coralista and dandelion so I think I need this in my collection 😉 This sure looks pretty.

  • Gemma

    Wow i cant wait to try this one, I love Thrrob, coralista and dallas. Who can resist a benefit face powder

  • jackieg02

    Looks veeerry niiice. But I must resist. I don’t need anymore cheek/face products…or any other products for that matter.

    Excellent way of spending the $15 sephora certificate I have! I love these Benefit combination box powders. The first one I got was the Powder Pop with Hoola, Dandelion and Dallas andI LOVE it like crazy, of course I got the next one Powderazzi I think. That was just recently and now a new one already? There is something about these powders that I love, they just make me look rested and the powders blend so easily into my skin. Have you try mixing them? I love layering Dandelion over Dallas it was totally discovered by accident when I mixed the two on my brush one time. I used it that way ever since I discovered it. Enough said I just placed the order for the Sugarbomb along with the 2 sets of 3 for $10 benefit eye dust that I also read in your blog a while back. At checkout I was $2 away from free shipping and saw this Nars eyeshadow in a limited edition gold color for only $9 I just had to get it! With the gift card I spent under $50 for all that and a Kat Von D tote bag. What a crazy deal! Thanks Muse!! So excited and so broke, all these deals are killing me! 🙂

    • the Muse

      hey jojo! I do that too with Dallas and Dandelion or sometimes Thrrob and Dandelion haha! I really love them too and I’m terribly addicted to collecting them all! I’m only missing one from my collection which would be 10 😀 I seen the NARs in Silent Night what a great deal right? I paid full price last year!!!! GASP! I want the tote 😀 must get that toteeeeeeee! lol broke but happy right hun!?

      Enjoy your goodies doll!

  • Miss J

    I have tried it, it’s very pretty, and it does have a shimmer (but not glitter) All the colors are nice, and when you mix them all together gives cute peachy pink color. I believe it will be available at the end of december, or begining of january.

    • the Muse

      hey j awesome you got a sneak peek. it’s actually available for sale already at sephora phew quick!

  • MarTina

    I definitely have to add this to my collection. I hav Hoola which I use as an all over face powder and Georgia. This one will bit nicely right in between. 🙂

  • Connie

    dang it. your posts are killing me! I just caved and bought coralista last week. Now, I’ve got to get this too! =P

  • Del

    That looks nice…I’m sure you will keep us updated on whether or not you get it. I gave my card away as I could not justify spending $50 at Sephora during Christmas…it was sad parting with it, but at least I shared it & it will get good use, right? I know I could have used it towards some gifts, but there is no makeup gift receiving or giving this year. =( unless Santa comes to visit! =)

    • the Muse

      awwww they’ll be more sales to indulge in Del so don’t feel too bad darling! I’m sure Santa will grace you with at least one nice gift for the Holidays makeup wise :)! and whoever you gave it to I bet they appreciate it big time!

  • Cucumpear

    In a few months, when this shows up at the local counter, I’ll need to go and try it. It looks amazing and quite universial in the picture.
    I do love benefit’s boxes o’ powder. Coralista is my everyday blush and I’m very fond of Dandelion and Georgia. Hoola has caught my eye, but I’m scared of buying a bronzer for some strange reason.
    I’m fairly sure that sugarbomb will make its way into my stash, but benefit is expensive enough to wait and take a look rather than ordering online now.

    • the Muse

      I’m loving it cucumpear! 😀 Hoola isn’t a fav for me and you couldn’t prob skip it for Dallas imho! Coralista is incredible isn’t it!? 😀 Benefit had 20% off not sure if it’s expired already though!?

  • sarah

    Looking at these swatches and review I don’t think I’ll be buying it, but then again maybe I will cause I love collecting them

  • Maria

    Hi Muse, hey everyone 🙂

    I just ordered this one off ebay because i couldnt afford it at the regular retail price :P, but i tried it on at the counter over here in Australia and i thought it was gorgeous, so i cant wait. But i agree with you Muse, Coralista is amazing!!! I adore it, best blush ive ever tried. I dont think ill even bother to venture past Coralista and try anything because im sure it cant be topped 😛 It gives such a beautiful colour and since i may be running out at the rate i use it, i ordered one of those off ebay too 🙂



    • the Muse

      hey maria! Glad to hear you’re getting it 😀 Coralista is my fav for sure! 😀 Enjoy sugarbomb, can’t wait to hear what you think!
