Now, they have released this new boxed powder in ‘Sugarbomb’….What a sugary sweet name!!!
BENEFIT -- SUGARBOMB
A "sugar rush flush" facial powder
Gimme some sugar…with sugarbomb! These four unique shades of rose,
shimmering pink, soft plum, and peach blend together perfectly for a delicious
"sugar rush flush."
First thing is the traditional, unique packaging of Sugarbomb….Just like the other boxed powders, this one too is funky and unique…Bulky and not so ‘space friendly’. The net weight is 12.0 gm/0.42 oz. Weight wise its exactly same as Coralista, but I noticed its bit heavier and the pan is placed way up than Coralista. This is not so important, but I noticed, so I mentioned.
Swatch of BENEFIT -- SUGARBOMB
Texture is soft, smooth just like coralista. (I have coralista, so I keep comparing the two). There are fine shimmers, but they are so fine, that the end result is not a glittery mess, but an actual sheen. When I swatched the individual colors, they hardly showed up and 3 colors looked almost the same to me. The peach color looked golden’ish’ in the swatch. Out of the 4 colors, one color is 99% similar to Coralsita, other one is close cousin of Georgia (another boxed powder from same brand)
Comparison between Coralista and Sugarbomb
On swirling all of these colors, they just gave the perfect amount of color and shimmer. I didn’t find Sugarbomb too pigmented. I had to pick a good amount of product to get the color show up on me. I had to use 2 swirls for each cheek.
As described, the color was just like ‘rush flush’….(I interpret it as when you are in a rush and then reach some place in hurry and then you see the mirror and you get that flush….lol!!! Totally random, useless and senseless description).
I know you girls got it!!!
MAC 129 Blush Brush
The shimmer part was very light…It just gave a lovely sheen, which I like. The product itself has a mild fragrance, but that is not annoying or unbearable. Staying power is good. It lasted for about 6 hours, but then again it was my day one of using it and I was in hurry to post this review.
So now some questions…
Will this work on darker skin tones?
Ans: If applied over another blush, this will give a perfect sheen…If applied on its own, it will give a dash of color. If you keep building the color, it might turn ashy….Did this make any sense??
Do I think it’s a must-have??
Ans: it’s a lovely product, but not a must have.
Why? You said it’s a good product….
Ans: It sure is a lovely product, but if you are looking for a ‘blush’…I would suggest a pigmented product.
So, if its not pigmented, why is it needed?
Ans: It depends on person’s preferance. There are some places (conservative work places) where a complete, heavy make-up can be a little ‘too’ much….Also when you are in rush, blending a NARS blush may take some time…With this, you need not be careful…Apply and Go….
DISCLOSURE: This is my personal opinion about the product, based on my personal experiance. I have purchased it with my own hard earned cash.
