Review: Benefit's CORALista

Recently we did a Benefit Haul and one of the things we both purchased was Coral My World. This is a box set which included a deluxe sample of the blush Coralista & the highlighter Sun Beam. The main reason we bought this was essentially to "try it before you buy". Today we'll just be reviewing Coralista.

Coralista in Direct Sunlight           Coralista in Natural Lighting


Pigmentation
Pinky-peachy-coral colour with a subtle golden shimmer. It's well pigmented but at the same time it's really easy to blend
Texture
Finely milled & really smooth
Scent
Subtle citrus fruity smell - its pretty nice!
Sensitivity
So far there haven't been had any reactions or break outs. Make sure to read the ingredients though if you know you're allergic to something :)
Packaging
The packaging for the sample is a malleable plastic. I wish it was a bit better but because it's a sample & for the price - I'll let it slide. It's also a bit hard to swish your brush in it as well but again...its sample sized XD
Availability
This product is highly accessible - the full sized product can be bought instore or online. The sample sized product - I've only seen it online (if you live in Australia that is :P)
Price
Sample:
$10.00 USD (Benefit Website + a sample of Sunbeam) // Buy Me
Full Size:
cheapest: $28.00 USD (Benefit Website) // Buy Me
most expensive: $51.00 AUD (Myer/David Jones) // Buy Me
-------------------------  

Overall Thoughts: 
 This blush has been raved about on the blogging world and I really can see why!
Coralista is the kind of blush you would use if you wanted natural pop of colour on cheeks. I can see the shade flattering most skin tones and the shimmer gives a really nice subtle illuminating look. It's really smooth texture wise, easy to blend & smells really good. There is nothing really to fault ! 
If you're still on the fence about this I really do recommend buying the Coral My World box.

Would I purchase the full size?
 If my sample runs out and I have a healthy wallet - I most certainly would! :)
  

 What are your thoughts on Coralista?

  1. This was one of the first blushes I bought, in the sample size with Sun Beam! I love the glow it gives. I would also get the full size once it runs out, the packaging for Benefit blushes are cute~

  2. Aww the colour looks so pretty! I'm in need of new blushes but the price is so absurd at DJs and Myer. Great post!

  9. I love Benefit blushes. I have Bella Bamba, also in a deluxe sample, and it's just great. I love how well they blend. Also, a travel size kabuki works pretty well for getting the product out in the DS. Nice review!

    Have a nice day!
