I will be doing my first review today on a product that I have owned for quite some time now. I think I bought this product in April of 2011. It’s the CORALista blush box from Benefit. I bought this from Ulta for $28 dollars (for .28 oz) you can also purchase this on sephora.com and benefit.com, or at a Sephora.
The box that I have is the original box where the lid is separate from the box itself and I hate this design, it’s not very convenient. I noticed that all of the newer boxes are starting to have the lid attached now, so I’m happy to see the change!
This blush is a coral, peachy pink that has some golden shimmer in it. When I apply this blush, it is very illuminating and warms the completion. Many times when I wear this, I don’t feel the need to add a cheek highlighter on top of this because it is so brightening. It applies smooth and has decent color payoff. (In one of the pictures below I have the color built up on the left and sheered out on the right) This color works best on lighter to medium skin tones. I think on darker skin tones this could look a little ashy.
One thing that is big positive for me with this blush is the scent. It has a light floral scent to it. You can’t smell it too much on your cheeks but you can when you open up the box to apply it. I’m not a huge fan of floral scents but this one is light enough that it is very pleasant and not overpowering.
This blush is a little on the expensive side at $1 per every .1 oz but with the color and scent, I think it is well worth it and I would defiantly repurchase this product.
Do any of you have this blush? If so, let me know what you think of it!
Always will be,
