|Left to Right: Benetint, High Beam, Sugarbomb Blusher, Sugarbomb Lipgloss|
The Benefit Sugarlicious Lip and Cheek Kit is a little kit centered around the famous Sugarbomb blush with 3 other super complimentary products: Benetint, High Beam and Sugarbomb Lipgloss. To say I love this kit would be an understatement. I think it's absolutely incredible and I've had to stop myself using it because I would adore to use it every day but then I would run out so quickly and all my other products would be neglected! Overall, everything in the kit works so well together. Benetint gives the Sugarbomb and extra bit of oomph and the High Beam highlighter is what finally convinced me that products that aren't powder are not the devil after all. Benetint is so amazing on your lips and paired with the Sugarbomb lipgloss, you've got one really pinky peachy beautiful makeup look. Now, I'm going to do mini reviews of each individual product!
I'm starting with the lipgloss first because it's my least favourite product in the kit. This doesn't mean I don't like it though! As to be expected with a lipgloss, it doesn't have very long lasting power at all, but it's a lovely non-sticky consistency. On it's own it's a very sheer colour so it's great for those days where you want nice but natural looking makeup with a bit of shine, and when used over Benetint, it's a match made in heaven for the rest of the products in the kit.
I wasn't expecting to like Benetint. I'd seen Posie Tint on the Benefit website and just couldn't understand why they didn't put that one in there instead. In the bottle, Benetint looks so red and scary, I just couldn't see it working on my very light skin. Thankfully, I was proved wrong - despite the scary colour in the bottle, it blends out on skin to a beautiful soft rose pink. I use it on both my cheeks and lips for a really co-ordinated look and it's great for days where I want to look made up but have no time. As a bonus, it smells bloody incredible too and it lasts a good long while on my skin.
I am a powder girl. I like loose mineral powder foundation. I like powder blushes. I like powder highlighters. I like powder eyeshadow. Take that cream and liquid away from me! High Beam drew me in though. It looks so pretty and attractive and when I read it's "supermodel in a bottle" I figured it was time to try something a little different from my beloved powders. I'm pleased to report I am in no way disappointed and once my little bottle is up, I'll be hot footing it to Debenhams and repurchasing a full size one! It applies like a dream and the glow it adds to your face is divine. Again, it's very long lasting.
This blusher is the product that made me interested in Benefit. Although I'd heard of Benefit before, I didn't know much about it at all and figured it was just one of those overpriced brands that people like to boast about owning. Then I saw this blusher. I realised I needed this blusher. Then I perused the Benefit website. Then I decided I liked the look of this brand. A few months later, I'm the owner of this kit and receiving my introduction to Benefit and quickly falling in love. This blusher is everything I'd hoped for. Different to anything else in my collection (well, up until a few days ago anyway!) it was great to have a new colour to experiment with. Sugarbomb really makes me look so healthy. It's a lovely, soft, fine powder with very little fallout. Although it fades, it is still there at the end of the day!
So, as you can see, this is a product I genuinely have no bad words for. Are you as much of a Benefit fan girl as I am?
