Benefit Sugar Bomb Highlight Review and Product Swatches
Benefit sure has a lot of fantastic products from highlights to lacquer blushes. I love the names of the products and the uber cute packaging.
The Benefit Sugar Bomb is considered a highlighter so don’t expect a lot of actual colored pigmentation. This palette contains 4 colors and blend as one to create dimensional highlights.
Benefit Sugar Bomb comes in a metallic cardboard box and also contains a brush, which I think is goat hair. The small flat brush is great for touch ups but if you want real shimmer grab something with more fibers.
If you want smooth subtle shimmer that is easy to travel with then I recommend checking this one out.
What it is:
A “sugar rush flush” facial powder.
What it does:
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.” ~sephora.com
