Coralista looks great on my pale skin and usually stays a good 5-6 hours. The product lasts forever. I bought this over a year ago and just hit the pan. Although the packaging is cute, it is not practical. I am afraid to travel with it because there is no way to secure the lid. The brush included is awful, I threw it out.
I have a love/hate relationship with this blush.
I am pretty pale, so when I put this on (no matter how lightly) it is very BRIGHT on my face and makes me look sunburnt for the first 30mins of wear. After that, it fades a little and looks pretty. The smell is nice, and so is the shimmer. The wear time is pretty pathetic, I find that it is completely gone after 3 hours of wear on a hot day. It is VERY pigmented which is good, it just seems to be the wrong pigment for me if that makes sense. I will keep experimenting with this and will probably put it up for swaps.
Packaging is average, price is ridiculous ($60 a pop where I live), aaaaaand I won't be buying this again. I gave it an overall rating of 4 because it is very pretty and would be amazing on someone with darker skin in a less humid climate- I think the wear would improve DRAMATICALLY if I took humidity out of the equation.
This shows up as mostly pink on me (NC25). I don't think it's flattering for my skintone. Also, sparkles+smell+price = not impressed. Pretty box, though, and will last a while.
This is such a gorgeous coral colour, it reminds me of the type of sunkissed look from The OC. It really makes my face look pretty and glowy! However I wish they would change the packaging to something more travel friendly and tone down the fragrance.
I purchased this product about a year ago and never use it. The pigmentation is so-so and the smell is not appealing to me. Scent is subjective, so it's definitely worth the trip to see/smell it at a counter first before purchase. MAC, Milani, even Wet N' Wild blushes have more pigmentation that this product in my opinion. I suppose I could apply layer after layer, but then a sheen that settles into my pores is really not a look I tend to go for. For $28, I would not repurchase. I actually have not purchased any additional Benefit boxed blushes because I was so unimpressed with Coralista. I thought the packaging was cute, with the blue iridescence and leopard thing going on.
I really like BeneFit blushes - they are well pigmented, not too sparkly, and last a long time. Coralista is my latest BeneFit blush. It's great for fair skin, and makes my blue eyes really pop. Because I have pink undertones, I sometimes "pink" this up a bit by adding a dash of BeneFit's Throbbb on top. Well worth the price, as it lasts forever.
great blush, and scent. expensive, but soooo worth it .
I've been waiting to buy this blush since it came out, but couldn't justify the purchase since I have a ton of blushes, and similar shades... I got it recently in the F&F sale at sephora, and I am underwhelmed. A dupe for this product is Milanis luminous blush, which I think has better pigmentation.. sad to say. It also has a fragrance to it that I don't care for, but is somewhat pleasant. I will return it.. it is not worth the hype... milani's blushes are around $5 while this is over 20 bucks.
I am SO happy I took a chance on Coralista! I LOVE makeup, but the BeneFit brand never really appealed to me, mainly because I like more practical packaging that is portable. I've been on a blush kick lately, and have every Nars and Illamasqua shade I'm interested in, and am really pleased with those brands.
I saw the Powda Wowza box of blushes at Sephora, and I thought this would be a perfect way to try the brand without wasting a lot of money if I hated it. It comes with 3 smaller versions of their face powders: Coralista, Hoola, and Bella Bamba. I've gotta say, I love them all. They apply very nicely and look very natural, even under harsh hospital lighting. I have a tendency to be heavy-handed with blushes, but these are very hard to overdo, while still showing up nicely on the skin. I look glowy and well rested, and it's pretty effortless to do. I highly recommend Coralista. Now I have a new obsession! Off to buy Dandelion!
I bought this product about 2 months ago, I have been using it non-stop! O am absolutely in love with this blush! The color is the most gorgeous coral color I have ever used, it lasts on me ALL day even with my oily skin! For me, this is a MUST-HAVE in your staple collection especially for summer/ spring!
