Cute, cheery box. In the pan, the color looks like a warm corally-pink, but it looks too pink-cool on me if that makes sense. Plus I'm not a fan of pink blushes -- I was hoping this was going to be a true coral color (more of a melon). Good pigmentation though.
This blush is really nice. My complexion is med/warm and this blush just gives me this nice fresh glow. It's a subtle color but I find it so easy to wear. I like how it brightens my face. I will be using this a lot. On me the color is a coral/pink with shimmer. The texture is silky and easy to blend.
When I first tried this product I was super excited because I am obsessed with coral... I didn't think that it would be great on lots of skin tones, but as more of my friends tried it I was shocked to find it looking great on tons of diferent skintones. I would say this is much more versatile than dandelion, georgia, and thrrrob; the extra pigment helps and the color is pink enough that it looks great on different skintones! I will definitely purchase this over and over.
At first i was really unsure about this, ide made the mistake of looking at reviews on here before ide even tried it on my own skin! I wasnt expecting a really intense colour that i was hoping for, and i didnt get it. But what I did get was a pale coral that made a nice change from my normal pink blush. If you want a more intense colour you could continue to reapply in order to make it stand out more but to be honest i think it has a cut off point, after which it doesnt really change much. I personally love Benefit products, preferring the subtle look rather than lots of reall intense bright colour which often dont suit me. For this reason i think ide probably buy it again but for anyone with a darker skin tone that is wanting a real 'pop' of colour, this isnt for you, the colour in the box isnt really an indication of how it comes out. But for someone who is on the fair side of medium this is a lovely, very wearable blush that, althought expensive to initially purchase, will last forever!
Coralista is a nice pinky/coral color - it works well on my fair skin (I wear MAC NW20 or UD Dream) - The packaging is attractive and the surface size of the product makes it easy to apply. I do not really care for the brushes that come with the Benefit blushes that come in the boxes, but this applies nicely and smoothly with a dense blush brush (I use the one that came with the Mally blush trios). The blush also blends well and does not fade throughout the day. A great color to give your complexion a pick-me-up fresh faced look.
Why are the Benefit blushes so BIG?
It's too too similar to the other (big) blushers they have already. Unexciting.
I have to say the marketing around this product is very clever! I could have bought Coralista just for the box alone. It's really bright and funky with leopard pattern on it. Like makeup for the jungle ....ha ha. It also has a citrusy scent (I think it is) which makes you want to wear it even more.
The blush itself is peachy matt-ish toned with a hint of gold in it. The colour has more of a kick to it than Dandelion which can I find a bit wishy washy. A highly recommended product, if a bit pricey....
I think this corally color is absolutely gorgeous on asian skin. It gives a nice warm flush of color to your cheeks (assuming you don't pack it on). And you get so much of it in the box! The brush you get with the package is pretty much useless. Make sure you apply this blush with a light hand and an angled blush brush!
I like Benefits more pigmented boxes of powder, Coralista being one of them. Coralista is a slightly shimmery pinkish coral color (more coral than pink). It is what I wanted Nars Orgasm to be, a pretty pop of coral (not just gold shimmer). The powder applies evenly with just one stroke and I donít need to layer as I do with some sheer blushes. I do wish the blush would last longer but I think that is due to itís sheer nature. I think applied over a cream blush it would last all day. I would take a lipstick off for that, but since this intended to be a face brightening powder and not a blush per say I wont. The packaging is cute, but not everyoneís cup of tea, but I think the color is nice enough that it would be worth it to ignore if the box wasnít exactly for you. It is metallic and animal print at the same time so it is over the top, but not hideous in my opinion. There is a slight sent so those with sensitivity to that might want to pass. I donít notice it really and it fades away shortly after application. It also comes with a small scratchy brush that I tossed immediately. The price is a bit steep but since you really donít need much for each application it will last you a long time. Check it out at Sephora or you local Benefit counter if you are not sure it is for you.
Benefit's boxes of powders are classics!! Coralista is a lovely cheerful coral pink/peach color. It doesn't look orange, I'm thinking that it might be similar to Nars Deep throat, but I'm not sure. Anyways Coralista smells like lovely flowers!! which is different from the other 6 boxes of powders...lovely! would definitely repurchase if I used it up!! but for such a pricey item you get A LOT in the box, really!
P.S. at the beginning I was a bit disappointed because the color seems pretty sheer when I first applied on my face, however, after a few minutes, the coral-ish color shows up! don't know why though - but i love the warm tone!
P.P.S. (latest update) - I found myself rarely reach for Coralista now, the pink-toned blush can be easily replaced by other pink blushes I own...
