Blush Love; Coralista

Hey girlies,

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas & New Year. I had a lovely time, and was rather spoilt with my main pressie being a MacBook Pro. Feel very lucky! :)

One of my other presents this Christmas was a boxed blusher fom Benefit, the muchly talked about, Coralista! I was so happy when i unwrapped this present as Coralista is a blusher i have always pined after, but at a slightly excessive £23.50 it was hardly a product i could buy willy nilly. Thank god for Christmas, eh! ;)

The blusher is housed like any other Benefit powder, in a cardboard box, which looks pretty for a while but unfortunately in a few months time will inevitably look pretty battered! The packaging features a leopard print design, which gets a big thumbs up from me as i bloody well love a bit of animal print! (i am known to wear my Leopard print Pyjama bottoms AND Leopard print dressing gown at the same time....;))

Enough rambling about the packaging, lets get onto the product! Firstly, it smells divine, a sweet, light smell - kinda reminds me of the retro sweets, Parma Violets. The blusher itself is a peachy coral affair, with a slight satin finish. I apply Coralista in one of two ways, either on the apples of my cheeks, or along my cheekbones to give a nice peachy glow, which catches the light nicely. Like any other Benefit boxed powder, it comes with a brush. I don't use the brush, but i guess its convenient if you take this blusher out with you and need to apply it on-the-go.

For me, Coralista definitely lives unto the hype, from the leopard print packaging to the lovely glow it leaves on your skin, it gets a big thumbs up from me! The only negative is the price, but i guess with Benefit being a high end brand, you would expect those kind of prices, definitely one for Birthday/Christmas lists! ;)

What do you think about Coralista, have you got it, or does the £23.50 price tag put you off?

  1. price tag definitely puts me off, as with nearly all Benefit products! they're decent quality, but you can get better, still high end ones, for a lot cheaper :-)
    this still looks like a lovely blush though xx

  2. I have this blush as part of a set of three (coralista, bella bamba and hoola) which was released at Christmas for around £20! Amazing I know, it's only tiny but I doubt I'd use it all! This is a lovely blush x

  3. The price tag puts me off too but I would love to splurge on a Benefit boxed blush one day

  4. I love this one! I have been using it for 2 years now and I still think that it is lovely! You have such a good blog! Following you now!
