Benefit – Sugarlicious Lip & Cheek Kit
This post may contain affiliate links.
I’m a sucker for a make-up kit and I just ADORE Benefit’s make-up box collections. This one is Sugarlicious Lip & Cheek Kit and it’s one of my favourites. It contains five of Benefit’s most popular products:
- High Beam – enhances the complexion with a luminescent shine
- Benetint – a ‘sexy flush in a bottle’ for lips and cheeks
- Sugarbomb powder and brush – creates a natural radiance for cheeks
- Sugarbomb Ultra Plush – a luxurious and silky lip gloss
High Beam is one of Benefit’s bestsellers and it’s easy to see why. This satiny pink liquid highlighter can be used all over the face for a radiant glow, or just as a spot highlighter on cheekbones.
See the swatch image below – I haven’t rubbed it in too much so you can clearly see the shimmer. I use this all the time, it’s lovely in Summer, and if you have a great complexion you can just wear a little High Beam on it’s own on your cheeks for a lovely Summery glow.
Benetint is one of Benefit’s signature products. This rose-tinted stain, originally created for an exotic dancer in the 1970s, provides a long-lasting flush of colour for the cheeks and lips. Personally I prefer wearing it on my cheeks to my lips as I think it looks a bit like I’ve been drinking cherryade and it’s stained my lips! You can apply a clear lip gloss on top of Benetint if you are wearing it on your lips.
Benetint is a really original, unique product, Benefit have been selling this for as long as I can remember, and there isn’t really much else on the market to rival it. On the swatch image below you can see what it looks like when it has first been applied and then how it looks once it has been blended in. I find the best way of blending Benetint is with the fingertips, but you will need to wash your hands afterwards!
Sugarbomb powder is my favourite product in this Sugarlicious kit and I will definitely be buying a full size box when this one runs out. Sugarbomb is a blend of 4 individual pressed powders – peach, soft plum, pink and rose – that you can apply to the apples of your cheeks with the cute little brush for a rosy glow. The powder has an AMAZING sweet sugary scent, it’s almost worth buying it just to sniff it! You could also apply the individual powders as eyeshadows using a small blush or the pad of your finger.
The Sugarbomb blush powder has a pale shimmer to it that you can only see when it catches the light. The swatch image below has been taken in natural light, you can see the lovely rosy colour of the blush but the shimmer is not evident.
The swatch image of Sugarbomb powder below was taken in artificial light and you can really see the lovely shimmery golden particles.
Sugarbomb Ultra Plush is a shimmery lipgloss with a sweet fragrance/taste, it complements the Sugarbomb face powder perfectly. It’s hard to describe the colour of the Sugarbomb Ultra Plush lipgloss, it’s a neutral pinky brown colour with lots of shimmer, and it’s easy to apply it to the lips with the little pointed applicator end.
You can see from the swatch image below that Sugarbomb Ultra Plush gives a nice natural nude result on the lips, but you could even apply it over the top of a darker lip colour to give lots of extra shimmer and gloss if you prefer a stronger lip colour.
These 4 superb products all come nestled inside the cute little cardboard box which has a mirror inside the magnetic lid, making it perfect for when you’re away from home. Benefit really do know how to do a good make-up kit!
Sugarlicious is also a great way to try out Benefit’s products if you don’t want to shell out on the full size products straight away. All of the products in the Sugarlicious Lip & Cheek Kit are available as larger full size products. If you’re new to make-up this kit also includes some instruction cards to help show you how to use the products.
Benefit Sugarlicious Lip & Cheek Kit is priced at £25.50 and is available from Benefit.
