High Street v High End: Blusher





 This month I'm comparing blushers - both of these are pink shimmery blushers - and as I'm sure you can tell they are both very well used!

High Street: Bourjois Little Round Pot Blusher in Rose D'or - RRP £7.99


This is a really lovely everyday shade and it's super pigmented so you only need a tiny bit. My only criticism of this product is that you don't actually get all that much product for your money! If you look at the size of it compared to the Benefit blush it really is quite tiny! It did come with a brush, but I don't really know why because I don't think anyone would use it because it was so small!

High End: Benefit Sugarbomb - RRP £23.50



As you can see, this is extremely well used and yes I will use it until the end! This is perfect for summer due to the peachy shimmer. The lasting power is pretty impressive and the product itself lasts ages - I've had this probably longer than I should have had! The only criticism I would have is that I don't like the brush it comes with - it's the perfect brush for a product like the Hoola bronzer, but I use a different one to apply this and the other Benefit blushers.

Winner: Benefit Sugarbomb. This was close because the effect is actually quite similar, but Benefit was my winner because of the staying power and the amount of product you get for your money - it's expensive but lasts forever!

Have you tried either of these blushers? What did you think?

  2. There is a lot of drugstore products that match up to high end products, but they never last as long, you definitely get your moneys worth when it comes to high end :)

    1. Yeah I agree! There are some great drugstore products but sometimes you really do get more for your money with high end! X

  3. I do find Benefit expensive for blush and unfortunately I don't find that the pot lasts me as long as others like MAC and NARS with that said Bella Bamba is one of my all time faves! Thanks for this review sugar bomb sounds like a treat <3

  5. So good to see that the Bourjois option measured up so well. I'll save Sugarbomb for when I'm feeling spendy and pick up Bourjous in the mean time ;)
