I’m a huge fan of Benefit blushers, and was thrilled to get my hands on this palette which contained five of Benefit’s best-selling blushers at Christmas. I couldn’t wait to try out the highly-raved about Coralista and Rockateur blushers, and I must admit I thought Sugarbomb would be the one I reached for the least. However, over time this particular blusher proved otherwise and has since become the blusher I reach for on a daily basis!
The Sugarbomb blush contains four shades; a cool-toned pink, a warm rose, a peach shade and a lilac-plum colour. All four shades are slightly – but not overly – shimmery, which I love as it adds a nice glow to my cheeks. It catches the light so nicely – you can kind of see this in the photo above.
Before I first used Sugarbomb, I wasn’t sure what to expect once I swirled my brush around the four shades and applied it to my cheeks. And the only way I can describe the resulting effect is that of a natural radiant flush. It doesn’t look too pink or too peachy on my skin – it’s just the perfect way of adding a natural, glowy pop of colour to the cheeks. I don’t know how it does it with the four different shades it contains, but it just really, really works and deserves way more recognition! I also love how the blush complements pretty much any makeup look I have worn with it.
Benefit Sugarbomb is available for £23.50 (and is totally worth the investment!)
