Today I’m reviewing the Benefit CORALista blush which is a very popular coral pink blush from Benefit Cosmetics. I bought it as part of the Go Tropicoral kit (from sephora.com) which also contains Coralista lip gloss, High Beam highlighter and Cha Cha Tint.
Price : $28 for boxed full size blush
Benefit’s Coralista Blush is described as a warm coral pink by the brand but on my medium tone complexion, it comes out more of a soft glowing peach. The blush has a healthy dose of ultra fine gold shimmer that adds a healthy glow and sheen to the skin without emphasizing pores or giving the dreaded disco ball look. I find the shade very easy to wear and something that would pair well with almost any lip color. It just adds a little warmth and glow to my cheeks which is very flattering. I think the shade is best suited for fair to medium complexions. The color is too pale to show well on deeper skin tones.
The formula is quite smooth and silky in texture. It blends easily without any issues and I get about 6-7 hours of wear which fairly good. Overall, its a really nice blush that boosts the complexion and could be a great staple blush in someone’s collection. I’m not head over heels over it because its a bit light for my complexion but I do like the soft color and radiance it adds to my cheeks!
