Love this blush, so pretty for the spring/summer on those of us on the fairer side of the skin spectrum. This is pretty close to NARS orgasm, but a little more pinky and less sparkly than Orgasm - I also find this to be more finely milled so I seem to have better application with this. I use this with a very light gold bronzer for a pretty glow - and add NARS albatross to the tops of my cheek bones. The last three days that I have used this makeup combo, I've had compliments on my makeup :)
I just last week bought my second square of Coralista. I bought the first one last April. Yep that's right, it lasted a year. I use it every day. I apply it with a kabuki brush to my cheeks, then a swipe across my forehead, neck and decollate, and a bit heavier swipe in my cleavage for a quick highlight. Some days I reapply to my face to freshen up as well.
This product could cost $200 and would still be worth every penny to me. I love the awake look it gives my complexion, and the color is beautiful year round. Awesome product.
Oh and it does NOT break me out & my skin is acne-prone. Also, the slight shimmer is more like a glow & looks very natural, not fake at all. continued >>
I really love this colour. It gives a soft apricot like, glowy look. It's exactly the colour I was searching for and goes really well with my NC20 skin. It's got a bit more punch than Nars' Orgasm. And it's a very build-able pigmented colour.
It's best not to use the brush provided as it's very coarse and blush should be applied in a circular motion, which is difficult with a brush shaped the way it is.
The box seems cute but is actually really hopeless, which is why I've taken off one lippie. If the case were better this would be my perfect blush. But the horrible cardboard box means I can't throw it in my bag without the risk of it falling apart. The stickers have peeled off the box from the times I have tried to take it with me on a night out. And for a perfectionist like me, this is not good.
Coralista is a sexy, saturated pinkish coral. It gives a subtle amount of pigment, while providing a frosty highlight. The blush is also quite sheer and soft. Unfortunately, in daylight, one can detect tiny sparkles in the blush. I personally do not like this as it gives a slightly unnatural appearance. On a positive note, however, the sparkles are very finely milled. Moreover, this blush looks beautiful when combined with a contour by providing ultra dimensionality. This blush will truly pop the cheeks and bring them to life. The packaging looks attractive in the store, but it is actually very cheap. It is essentially a strong cardboard box with a shiny paper over top. And after a few months of carrying this box in your purse, it will begin to deteriorate and fall apart.
I absolutely love this! I would not consider it a blush though. It is the perfect sheer coral pink highlighter. I like to use it as a final touch to my makeup, over my blush. I need a good flush, so I always use MUFE HD powder over my blush then do a couple of swipes over each cheekbone up to the temple for just the right amount of glow without looking garish. I have tried other Benefit boxed highlighters, and so far this one is the only that is a keeper. Seems pretty expensive when you hold that little box, but it lasts FOREVER.
What can you say about a blush that has so many reviews?
Color? A Light Coral.
Shimmer? Yes a Cool Silver/Pink, but doable.
Pigmented? Somewhat, it doesn't matter if I apply it before or after applying setting it almost disappears on me for reference I'm a NW/NC 25 or Light-Medium with Neutral/Beige Undertone.
Love this Blush!! The perfect Coral color. Glides on super smooth and with a good face primer will last all day. I bought mine almost a year ago and still have lots of product left!! Oh and packaging is suuuuper cute!!
I really like this blush, I didn't expect to, as the other peachy blushes tend to disappear on me quite quickly (my pout one was okay but was not quite right you could see I was wearing a blush), I use it on top of my barefaced mineral foundation and it sits on there really nicely, it needs re applying though, but it didn't cake on me and never looked 'too heav
As usual in the UK it is expensive and I wouldn't normally buy benefit as I have been disappointed in their 'Dr feelgood primer and their bad gal mascara, but this blush worked as it made me look fresh, it's light in texture and a light fragrance too.
Because of it's expense see if you can try it first before buying. It's one of the few Benefit products I would buy again as it suits my pale skin with it's slight yellow tone and covers my ruddy 'english weather' cheeks quite well . Hope this helps :)
I bought this item because of all the hype. I swatched the sample on my arm and tingled with glee. When I got home the glee quickly turned to dismay. I just purchase another me too peach blush. I quickly opened the packaging hoping that it would be something special. Sadly no. I will stick with NARS. Coralista does not last as long as any NARS blushes and it is just as expensive. It has adorable packaging but that is about it. But I digress. I want to put it up for swap but who knows.
Rank me among those who love this prod. It's a beautiful coral shad, not too orange, not too red. You can make it almost sheer, or add a bit more for more drama. But it's never too obvious. I love the shimmer because it's just that: shimmery. Not glittery. I find shimmer very becoming. I don't understand why some people get so hysterical about it.
