First off the color is wonderful! The product itself seems to last a long time in the box, but once of you face, like most powder blushes, you have to reapply. Which brings me to it's packaging. I am not a fan, Its not easy to put in your purse, its bulky and has no secure way of closing.
I really love blending this with my Rimmel Sandance bronzer.
This is my favorite blush by far, just wish they would come out with a better, more compact case!
I'd had my eyes on this blush for close to a year, and finally purchased it along with the Total Moisture Facial Cream. Between these two products, BeneFit is now in the top 3 of my favorite cosmetic companies (with MAC and Clinique).
Coralista is just beautiful, a warm Coral pinky blush. I've found the best way to apply is in tiny amounts in layers. I just barely tap my brush (I use a blush brush, not the one provided though it's not horrible) onto the product and tap the brush onto my cheeks. I don't rub the brush, I tap. I do this in steps and build the color up. If I put down a bunch of color all at once it can look clownish, but light layers gives a flushed pink glow. There's no obvious type of shimmer but it does have a glowiness, and I skip highlighter when I use this.
The packaging kinda sucks. The lid doesn't come of all the way, it just flips open so it's akward getting the blush brush into that small square pan. The cardboard probably could get dinged up easily too.
Overall, I really do like this blush and am glad I purchased it. A bit pricey ($28 USD) but a little goes a long way. A unique, brightening color. Has a wonderful, tropical punch-like smell too.
too shimmery and its very itchy on my cheeks..
I have no idea what the rest of MUA see in this product. I'm not hating on MUA's, I'm just not seeing the same results. I was contemplating on how coral this would look on my dark skin tone and I thought it would show more like Orgasm or better yet, Tarte Blissful. I was devastated to find out that it oxidizes and made my 26 year old face red and plump (i didn't even dent the blush; still looks new).
At this moment, coralista gives nothing special to me... I am returning it and would buy something else.
My favorite blush hands-down. Similar in shade to NARS Orgasm but more pigmented, this blush is gorgeous. I will say that Benefit should be ashamed for reducing the size of their boxed powders without lowering the price. There is no excuse for this :(
I adore this blusher. I had been contemplating between Coralista and Sugar bomb for ages and I decided to go for Coralista. I'm so pleased I chose this shade.
Colour- gorgeous coral/pink- it really warms up your complexion and gives a gorgeous glow
Pigmentation- it's extremely pigmented so you can dust it lightly for a subtle sheer blush or layer it for a pop of bright coral colour- it's beautiful
Price- although it's quite pricey- as are many of Benefit products, it's definitely worth the money as you only need a tiny bit as it is so pigmented
They last forever and you get a lot of product compared to a Mac blush etc.
I think that it would suit most skin tones as it looks gorgeous with a tan or really pretty when lightly dusted onto pale skin.
definitely would recommend.
I LOVE this blush! I have olivey skin with yellow undertones and tend to wear this with a smokey eye and nude lip - it looks fantastic!
Its a multi-dimensional colour, thats a shimmery pink and goes on soooo soft, (like all the benefit blush boxes) and lasts for ages! Ive had this for about 4/5 months and wear it every day.
The colour is similar to Nars orgasm, but i find this powder to be more intense so a little goes a long way, but it is easy to build up if you want a deeper colour or if youve got tan on or are goin out. It lasts so much longer than orgasm, as the nars blush only lasted me a month or two and it cracks easily in the packaging.
I love the flush this gives me, its not streaky, it has just enough shimmer and it smells lovely! Will and have bought again!
I liked this blush a lot when I tried it in the store, I thought it was a perfect soft peach. But when I purchased it and tried it at home it seemed more orange with a ton of gold shimmer.
And the price makes me :( So worth it for Dandelion, but not for Coralista sadly.
I adore this blush. I love it when I'm pale in the winter, and when I'm tan in the summer. Although keep in mind that I don't get too dark, and I think that this blush would come up chalky on darker skin tones. It's my go-to cheek shade when I'm wearing a bold lippie, since it's not a bold blush. Coralista is a gorgeous warm, slightly muted coral shade with a fine gold sheen to it. The sheen in this blush is really what makes it stand out from other similar blushes (orgasm). The sheen has a highlighting effect on my cheek bones, and makes my cheeks look defined, glowy, dewey and sculpted.
This blush has a very distinct scent, which might bother someone who is scent sensitive, but I personally really love the smell. I wouldn't say that the smell fades after the blush is applied- because I'll notice a whiff of it here and there throughout the day sometimes.
The packaging is Benefit's classic boxed powder packaging, which might be bulky and inconvenient for some. The blush comes with a square, flat blush that has a cute tropical themed wooden handle. I know that many would disagree about this since a lot of gals are picky about what brushes they use- but I LOVE the brush that is included. The shape and size is absolutely perfect for applying Coralista, and it makes it easy to contour with the blush as well.
My only complaint about this blush would be that it's a bit powdery. When my skin is dry, this blush is difficult to wear. But as long as you keep your skin moisturized, you shouldn't have any problems. Overall, a really great blush and I think that it would be a great buy for those who aren't fragrance sensitive, or darker skinned.
This is my favorite blush! It looks very natural on my skin and gives me a nice flush. Has a little glitter to it and I love the blush especially after my face gets a little oily through out the day and surprisingly this blush looks even better like that. I like the packaging and I prefer my sephora blush brush over the brush it comes with but i've used the brush it comes with before and it works good. Just be sure to blend so it's not streaky. This blush smells so good too! And it's lasted me forever.
