I've Been Sugarbomb-ed!

I'm sorry.

I'm not feeling all entirely chatty today as I'm feeling rather under the weather. No thanks to a glut-filled Chinese New Year (which isn't even over yet!), and our lovely (and insanely) hot HOT weather.

Temperature over the last week or so has been hovering at oh... just about 36°C. Lovely.

But no matter. Today I want to share with you lovelies a product that I'm sure many of you would have heard of by now - Benefit's Sugarbomb blush.

Sugarbomb comes in four quarters in four shades - peachy, pinky, rosey and lilac-ky. Notice that two of the shades are cooler, and two are warmer. Don't ask me how, but it works.

Swirl your brush in and slowly buff it on your cheeks for a lovely peach-pink glow. Don't worry about it being too much. If anything, I'd say it seems a little light for me (MAC NC25). It took me about 5 swipes before I got it to look like that in the photo below.

(This photo was taken earlier, when I was not as sick and could still smile. But not bad eh? A little blush, and a big smile, and I look pretty alright, no?)

Anyhoo, enough of me talking. Enjoy your weekend!

Me, I'm crashing out for now. Ta~

Sugarbomb looks rather light on me too so I'd have to use it over a blush. You should see it on PB's skin. Totally eye-catching!

I agree about the being light part - most of Benefit boxed powders, except Hoola and Dallas need a lot of swiping with blush brush to show up on my skin, but to be honest, they definitely do give off a subtle glow. Plus, the packaging is too pretty to resist! I liked Benefit's marketing strategy for this product, selling it with cupcakes :D

Also, have you seen The Body Shop's dupe for this product?

Hope you feel better soon!

Connie: Yea, I think I might have to do that. And yes, I imagine it should have no problems showing up on Peeb's skin. =P

The Undercover Gypsy: Oh yea. The packaging keeps sucking me in. I've seen the dupe, but neve really played around with it. Although I find that TBS blushers are kinda over-priced.

Thanks for the well-wishes! =)

Those are really lovely shades! I like how it's just light-- would have to look like a clown with blush on now, wouldn't we? :)

Saw it, tried it, didn't really like it (far too light on me). 'Tis a pity, 'cos many ladies were raving about it too :(

PS: Rest well, and hope you recover real soon :)

Syen said...

All Women Stalker: Nope we wouldn't. Though I wished it was just a tad more pigmented so it wouldn't have to take me 5 swipes just for it to show. Don't have that much time in the mornings! LOL.

Tine: Yes, 'tis pity. Thanks, and feeling better already, after a visit to the doc. =)
