I have Coralista in small size which came with my Tropicoral set. The taste is okay, while I am not a fan of fruit flavours in lip products, being over-sensitive to scents/tastes in general. The colour is a bit tricky. It gives a light coral look to your lips first applied, which is sweet. But that quickly fades in minutes to completely clear, along with the rest of the gloss. I like the feel of this gloss, but it really vanishes so very easily. I would never ever spend this much of money for a full size either. It's not too special gloss anyway.

Found this fullsize lipgloss in Coralista for 5$ at Shoppers Drug Mart. Great color, awesome taste. Love it. I would never pay the full price for a gloss though

I got the a mini version of thr colour Coralista in the Tropicoral kit and i'm in love! such a gorgeous light coral colour with no shimmers, has such a gorgeous sheen to it, not sticky at all and lasts a really long time. I will repurchase the full size when this runs out!

I tried a mini version of the Dandelion shade as part of a kit. The lip gloss is slightly sticky, which I like because it lasts longer. Unlike other reviewers, I think the lasting power is average, not ridiculous. I like that itís cushy and moisturizing, plus the sweet smell is a plus for me. I wouldnít repurchase this because itís too expensive for a simple lip gloss. I love tube lip glosses, but I see no difference in this productís performance vs. a drug store brand. Thereís nothing that stands out and makes me want to repurchase this over another brand. It feels nice, smells nice, and lasts decently, but thereís nothing that justifies spending extra for it.

I love these!! I have CORALista, which is the most beautiful coral lippie I own. I don't really detect shimmer, which I like, and it smells divine. I got this with my CORALista blush, and they flatter each other amazingly. The texture of this gloss is the best part; it's silky, lush, non-sticky, and feels moisturizing. The packaging is really cute; I love how the designs match the blush of the same name. I love you benefit (:

I got the Hoola one because it looked like a nude shimmery gloss. Honestly, i might as well have used a clear gloss. if you have pale lips, maybe the color would show up better but not for very long. drugstore brands have better staying power than this and still have the pigmentation you want.

I have the Hoola lip gloss (from the Bronze of Champions kit from Sephora) and I'm glad I didn't pay full price for this because it's not worth the $$.
First off, it has an odd 'rubbery' smell which I do not like and will deter me from using this gloss.
The texture is very sheer and not pigmented. You can get this kind of gloss at the drugstores for less money.
It's a definite miss and your money is better spent on other glosses that have more pigment and better staying power.

What is the point of a product like this really???
It looks pretty in the tube, absolutely gorgeous, however it is so incredibly sheer. What it looks like in the tube is pretty much impossible to get on you lips no matter how much you put on.
The lasting power of this is absolutely pathetic, you lick or nibble your lips once and it is completely 100% gone. Not worth the price.

I agree with the lack of staying power. While sheer, these look and feel great upon initial application, but one peck of a kiss later, the product seemed to disappear off of my lips, leaving them feeling dry and totally bare of color. I'm glad I tried these in Sephora's set of minis for $26. I would NEVER shell out full price for something so sheer and short lived.

Love all the colors but there is no staying power whatsoever. One lick and they're gonzo!! Way too pricey for the amount of time it stays on your lips....

I have two of these lip glosses in shades sugar bomb and dandelion. I love them both, they are so soft on your lips, highly recommend to anyone. The only downside is they don't last very long so you have to reaply. Love the packaging, makes me love benefit even more.

After swatching this product across several occasions, I finally bought Coralista. In all honesty, it's not worth the $20 CAN I paid for it. The pigment in the gloss is so sheer it may as well be clear on my lips. It has a very short wear time, and as it is a gloss it transfers quite easily.
That said, I like the subtle fruity taste and the texture is incredible - it's like a silky rich balm, rather than a sticky lip gloss.

After going through a 'I love coral' phase, I was eager to find a nice coral lipgloss. Passing by the Benefit counter, my eyes landed on Coralista. "Wow," I thought. "Look at the coral color! It's beautiful." I squeezed a little gloss on my hand. "Oh wow, it's so smooth and ... oily feeling. Oily gloss? this will be wonderful for my lips!!! It will absorb into my lips and keep it conditioned."
But I put down the gloss upon seeing the price. "Too much money," I felt. "Not worth it."
Months fly by as I looked at the gloss and imagined the blissful moments that could be. So I gave in and purchased it.
***2 min after purchase***
In my car, as I put down the gloss and observed the gloss on my lips in my rearview mirror, I frowned at the look of chapped lips smothered in a thick gloss. This was not the look I was going for. I tried moisturizing my lips before putting it on, but then thought, "What's the difference between this gloss and others?" Nothing. Nothing at all.

I have all of these, I got the mini versions of them all for $25 in a set, which is wonderfull bc i am able to try them all out and individually they are expensive. I have to say i love them all. I really love sugarbomb bc it is so pigminted and bella bomba for the sheer watermelon color. color pay off or not, my favorite thing about these is their texture. its unlike any gloss ive had before.. its smooth and almost feels good like it would be good for your lips. i hate sticky glosses bc im more of a chapstick girl.. that being said i love these. after they wear off, my lips feel smoother and softer and i dont feel like i need to run to my chapstick to moisturize. its super nice.
feeling on lips
not super longlasting
price for individule
(again, i got all of them in mini version for $25 at ulta)

Meh. I don't normally give less than rave reviews but I have this gloss in Dandelion and it is depressingly average, a glorified lip balm. I don't have seriously pigmented lips and it doesn't take much for a sheer gloss to show up on me and I am also quite pale so light pinks usually are exactly what I need. I love baby pinks and love the Dandelion blush. Unfortunately, Dandelion is so sheer it packs almost no punch whatsover in the pigment department-I've had clear-ish glosses (philosophy cinnamon buns) show up better on my lips.
The one thing I do like about this gloss and what keeps me using it is the milky, non-tacky formula. It really does feel nice on, but with zero color I wind up using it like a clear balm- it is too light for days when I have makeup on.
I will mark rebuy because I didn't have an allergic reaction and I am using it, and the quality of the formula has made me open to trying some of the darker colors in the line in the hopes they show up.
However, if you are looking for any color in Dandelion at all, you want to think twice about buying it, but I wouldn't kick a free gift or a sample out of bed if you got one.

Another example of how spinoffs of great products can spin straight to nowhere. Itís too bad, really, because I will never stop recommending the BeneFit boxed blushes; they are to lose your mind for--I pitched a fit when Georgia (peach) was discontinued, Iím crossing my fingers that the same wonít happen to Hervana (soft plummy pink mosaic) or Sugarbomb (rosy nude mosaic), and almost nothing looks better on medium-to-olive complexions than a hit of Dallas (dirty plum). But the six companion lip glosses they recently introduced--Dandelion, Coralista, Dallas, Sugarbomb, Bella Bamba and Hoola--were nothing but hype, made even more disappointing by the coattails they rode in on. I swatched them all at Ulta, and there was almost NO pigment going on; they felt nice, but turns out I was much happier with the Beauty Rush glosses up the corridor at Victoriaís Secret. Dallas had the best colour payoff by far, but it didnít flatter my pasty skin at all. Sugarbomb, on the other hand, looked pretty, but it was a middle-of-the-road pinky-nude shimmer that I can get from any brand at any price. At least being able to test them all in-store saved my butt from wasting money, because half the time IĎm too chicken to just go back and return something, like a big girl.

I was so excited when I heard Benefit were bringing out glosses to go with the boxed powders! My favorite powder is Bella Bamba so I brought the plush gloss of that. It is described as a 'sheer bright watermelon' and I agree - it's a medium pink but not too dark or too bright either - quite natural looking and sheer yet pigmented too. I really like the texture. They feel comfy on my lips, and I like that theyíre non-sticky or too thick. It tastes like a watermelon slice, with a hint of vanilla, which is nice and isn't too strong. It stays for about two hours, which is pretty good too.

I have Bella Bamba and Sugarbomb, and I want to go back and grab some other colours.
Well, first of all, this lip glosses are brilliant because they're not sticky at all! Feel very lightweight and smooth. Both glosses have identical smell, so I'm guessing the whole line smells like this, fruity. The payoff in Sugarbomb is much better than in Bella Bamba, you need a bit too much of a gloss to get to the initial bright colour.
I can't say they are very long lasting, but they do their best, and for a non-sticky lipgloss it's a great deal of 2,5-3 hours. But then again, I don't remember getting a better lasting from any other lipgloss (well, except Chanel one).
My main issue with these lip glosses so far is that they absolutely don't work with lipsticks. I wear lipsticks a lot, so the matter of compatibility is quite sensitive here. Frankly, I was very surprised about this, and sometimes I catch myself wondering if the price is not too high for a product like this.

I have both Coralista and Sugarbomb which I purchased as part of a set. The smell is very "peachy" and its non-sticky. Swatched on my hand the colors were very pigmented and gorgeous. However, on my pigmented Asian lips the color for both is very sheer and has little to no pigmentation.
It does look nice layered over a lip stain or lipstick. For the price of the product I found the packaging cheap and would have preferred a do-foot applicator. The lip gloss requires constant reapplication because it wears off quick. I don't find it moisturizing.
Don't get suckered into the hype of having a matching ($18 Canadian) lip gloss to go with their blushes. There are far better and cheaper lip glosses.

Own one in Dallas and I love it. Asides from its slick and non-sticky texture, the colour is amazing. It's a warm rose colour, not anywhere as cool as its powder counterpart, and works for MLBB look. Had I gotten one of the sheerer shades, I might've knocked off one star, but this one is just perfect that it's my new HG.
