Get Your Sugar Fix!

Hello ladies! I apologize for the lack of posts, and this time school is not my excuse! My family and I have recently moved into our new home, and without cable, and the Internet going off and on for 7+ days…. I was going insane AND couldn’t write any posts. Anyways, I am back and I wanted to share with you a review on one of the most gorgeous blushes you could ever own… Sugarbomb by Benefit.

To start off, this packaging completely caught my eye. A gorgeous metallic pink-boxed blush! It simply couldn’t get any better! I love how it looks like a piece of candy and the font that spells out “Sugarbomb” looks perfect on this product. This little number looks stunning against all of my other packaging in my collection.

I never had owned any Benefit products prior to this blush, but I heard so many great reviews on this blush and I knew I had to have it in my collection!

The blush is made up of four individual colors, which makes this blush stand out from all of the other blushes on the market. It has a perfect peach, a perky plum, a radiant rose, and a punchy pink. When you swirl all of these colors together you get such a beautiful blush color! One thing that is absolutely fantastic about this blush is that it looks great on all skin tones! I have light skin and I love the color on my cheeks, and my older sister who is darker and more olive toned used this last week and loved it! She thought the color was so amazing she went out and bought it herself! This blush definitely pleases a wide variety of skin tones and almost converts itself to the perfect color.
I wanted to swatch this color for you,
but my camera didn't pick up
the true color! 

Unfortunately for myself, this blush breaks me out*. When I first started using it, I noticed a small breakout on the apples of my cheeks. The only thing I had changed in my face routine was the blush, and as soon as I stopped using it the breakout cleared. This color is so gorgeous that I use it only on special occasions when I don’t care as much if it breaks me out later. Obviously, this is a product that I love if I am risking to have a small breakout for the next day. Francesca has more sensitive skin and the Benefit boxed blushes/powders don’t break her out, so I think it’s just my skin. 

“Sugarbomb” retails for $28, and you can purchase this on, Ulta, and Sephora (as well as both and This blush also comes with its own brush. I have never used this brush, but it is a denser brush and is nicely made.  Overall, this is a product that I would totally recommend. In the future, I would like to try more of the Benefit Boxed powders because I think they are absolutely gorgeous! If I can only wear them on special occasions… so be it. They are nicely made and have a fresh scent to them. The quality of this blush is literally amazing. The pigmentation and texture of “Sugarbomb” is something that stands out from all of my other blushes!

Hopefully this post has persuaded you to purchase “Sugarbomb”. For myself, I had experienced some of the “cons” of this blush but I am excited to try out another one!

*I don’t want you guys to get the wrong impression of my breakout. It wasn’t hard-core acne or anything, but there were noticeable bumps on my cheeks.
