After a) being sent a goodie bag from my absolute favourite make-up brand, Benefit and b) being on a bit of a low, feeling pasty and run down I decided a trip to the Benefit counter at Debenhams in The White Rose was needed!
I met a lovely, patient, helpful young lady at the counter and told her all about how I used to fake tan alot but am now adopting the pale look, yet need some help in adjusting my make-up colour palette as a result.
The Sugarbomb powder was recommended. She tried this on me and boom….my skin was glowing, rosey and natural in a few sweeps!
There are four shades within the box, which all compliment each other. See the photo below…I would describe these as bronze, peach, pink and coral. All have a gorgeous subtle, gold shimmer to them.
So, I’ve seen this product many times before but skipped it as I thought Coralista and 10 powders that I owned were pretty similar. But I was wrong. This gives a softer, much more natural look that the other powders. Coralista suits tanned tones, but now I have pale, warm skin in contrast with my black hair, I needed this softer look.
I instantly looked less washed out and pasty. The powder comes with a real handy little brush too, meaning I can touch up at lunchtime and evening.
I apply this by sweeping a large brush over the entire box of powder and brushing it across my cheekbones, up to my temples. I then used the pink alone from the box, and applied to the apples of my cheeks for that healthy glow. Finally, to give my eyes a little uplift I added the bronze as an eyeshadow and the peach shimmer under my eyes.
This is such a versatile product that is going to live in my make-up bag, handbag and on my face throughout Autumn this year.
