I am a C6 in Mac Face & Body, Barcelona in Nars Sheer Glow - so a medium brown skin with neutral undertones. And, coralista does not show up on me! What a bummer!

PROS:
-GORGEOUS PACKAGING! OMG that cute box with pink animal prints! It looks so pretty sitting in my vanity. Plus, I really love the brush that comes with it. I think its so good for contouring (flat shape) - I actually wash the brush along with my pro brushes and use it regularly. Good quality packaging and brush!
-Really nice coral shade for lighter skin tones. Did not show up on me whatsoever, so couldn't judge the product for staying power etc.

CONS:
-SHIMMER! YUCK! I hate shimmery blushes. I like matte colours because I can always ADD highlight if and where I want to. I don't like shimmer on the apple of my cheeks - just wrong placement imo and highlights pores meh.
I will admit the shimmer is not huge and chunky. But, because the pigment doesn't show up on me, all I am left with is shine so it doesn't work.
-NEEDS MORE PIGMENTATION! Light coral blushes CAN AND DO show up on darker skins (and I am not even dark skin proper), so Benefit has no excuse.
-The PRICE! Not worth the poor pigmentation. Plus, being shimmery this blush is less flexible for all occasions/skins.

VERDICT: Disappointed. Bought this when it came out and was all the rage on youtube. I.need.to.stop.being.sheep! :(

Pretty colour, however if you are very fair-skinned like me, you should be light handed with this blush as can be overpowering!

If you are fair-medium or darker, I don't think this blush would work well because it's very faint and light in colour payoff. After I apply this, it looks like I didn't apply any blush because it would just blend in with my skin.

I don't get the hype - I really don't. I'm NC25-30 and this blush barely showed on my skin. I tried every brush imaginable and after about 3 layers I finally saw a hint of pigment. At $28 a pop, I expected more. That said, it's classic benefit packaging and quality. I just wished the pigmentation was better. Oh well.

I received a mini version this in the 2012 Benefit's "Coral My World" (along with a mini version of Sun Beam) I don't know how it's taken me this long to review this blush but I love it. Oh my NC20-25 skin this is the perfect, slightly dewey flush that makes my cheeks look healthy. I don't notice any chunky glitter (compared to similar peachy blushes on the market) and the lasting power is pretty decent. I haven't hit pan on the mini size (great for travel) but wouldn't hesitate to buy the full size when I run out. The fallout is minimal and the color is so glowy and subtle!

I found this product through a Colour Analysis website. It was recommended as a blush for very fair, warm skintones, and this is exactly right. I'm about as pale as you can get without being albino, but I do have a warm undertone. I can't wear most blushers because they are too pigmented or too dark for me. I don't like a heavily pigmented look, as if you are pale it can look overdone, especially in summer.

This blush goes on very smoothly, and although there is a slight shimmer it does look natural, just a bit dewy. It comes in a tiny box (which is why I took one lippie off the price, as I think for this price they could give you a bit more). Within the box is a small brush, which - as other reviewers have said - is not very useful. I don't use this brush but put the blush on my Kabuki brush, and this gives just the right coverage and area for me.

In warmer weather I like this very much. It's still good in colder weather, unlike the Shiseido blush I have reviewed elsewhere, which puts on too much pigment. The BeneFit Coralista is still easy to apply on my skin, which gets drier in winter. I will probably use it forever!

Edit: After having owned the blush for a while, I have a complaint about the formula. It gets weird pretty quick for a powder. After about 6 months, the product gets much more powdery and has a more patchy application. I still like this blush, and can work past those flaws, but it's something to keep in mind, since most powders don't have that change as quickly.

Original: This is the blush that made me fall in love with blush! I had never tried a really peachy pink blush before, since I always saw people wearing cool-toned pinks (which look terrible on me). But once I discovered this blush, I absolutely fell in love. It gives just the right amount of color for my fair skin, and lasts a long while. It has a bit of a sheen, but it's more dewy than glittery. The packaging is admittedly very annoying, as I'm really not a fan of bulky packaging that makes things hard to store. But the performance of this blush makes me forgive that one flaw.

This blush is alright. Just alright.
I love the smell and the packaging is cute but I bit too bulky, I'm really not sure why it's so boxy and the brush inside was useless and poor quality to me.

The colour is nice in summer and spring, with a very light hand on my fair skin it's nice and gives me a bit of a glow. I don't like the texture though, at first it was nice but underneath the first layer it becomes a bit rough and isn't smooth.

I will continue to use this product because it was so expensive and is nice in summer, but would not repurchase. Perhaps it would be better for a darker skin tone?

This is revolting! It has shine and is definitely not coral, reminds me of the Revlon's 80s blush. Tacky box packaging, MAC's sheer tone Peaches is way much better with more product and natural looking.

Flattering color on medium warm yellowish undertone. Drugstore dupe for this is the milani baked blush luminoso.

Perfect for a subtle glow in the summer
