benefit coralista review


There is just something about this blush that leaves me feeling slightly unsatisfied. Maybe it's the £24 price tag that comes with it, to be honest a blusher that costs that much should be heavenly. I find that in winter when my skin is pale the colour of the blush seems to make my skin look washed out, because of the silver shimmer. The formula is great though, it glides on to cheeks easily and it's very pigmented. The smell strangely enough for a face powder is gorgeous, like watermelon/mango. I find the box rather annoying as it would be better with less packaging, it seems to take up all the space in my make up bag! I wouldn't repurchase this again, it's far too overpriced. Of course the colour is very pretty, but not really worth more than a Mac blusher. I will be sticking to Nars Orgasm for beautiful coral cheeks, which in my opinion is worth more compared to this, because of the warm toned colour. Overall, it's a great blush if you have a warmer skin tone it will look lovely, but if you are pale I would give it a miss as it will wash your skin out. If you are worried about the price, I would stay clear of this one, as you can find just as nice colours for much less of the price!

  1. I had my suspicions but you've confirmed it for me, it's too expensive!
    I like the colour but as you say there are other similar ones out there

  3. I have coralista, and I have to admit I love it, and have repurchased a few times. It is very expensive though and I agree about the big packaging even though it's very pretty. xx

  4. @tor I guess it all depends on your skin tone and whether it suits you, it does look nice on me in the summer just not the winter. I'm glad you like it though!
