Blush crush #4

Afternoon pretty ladies!
My latest blush crush is Coralista from benefit, which I received as part payment for helping to promote the new benefit mascara in Boots a few weeks back now, I did a video on that over on my You Tube channel so if you are interested in what other goodies I got and what went on, here is the link to it (Video)

At first glance I thought that Coralista was too similar to NARS deep throat blush, which I already own and love to bits (blush crush #1) and wouldn't really be worth getting. However luckily I had Lisa with me who loves it and convinced me that I did in fact need it in my life.

Coralista is a stunning pale coral/pink with a subtle gold sheen, the way I think best describes it is, If NARS Deep throat and NARS Orgasm had a baby, then this would be it, although the gold sheen in Coralista is a lot less obnoxious which makes it more universally wearable than NARS Orgasm.

Besides the colour, what I really love about Coralista is how incredibly finely milled, pigmented, and soft in texture it is, which makes it apply like an absolute dream, so can be worn as a subtle wash of colour or can be very easily built up to get a much more intense colour payoff. I also love how you get a massive 12g of product, which means I wont be having to splash out £23.50 for another one any time soon, happy days.
Top Coralista swatched lightly,
Bottom swatch built up heavily.
Do you own this blush, or any other benefit boxed blushers
What do you think of them?

Ooh just a quick p.s, I was so chuffed to guest blog over at the lovely Kat's blog yesterday while she is on holiday. It's just another EOTD using the Sleek Oh so special palette but in case you wanted to see here's the link (Clickandmakeup) :)


  1. Ah this is a lovely blush, I don't own any Benefit blushes, they are out of my price range! But I love the look of Coralista and have heard sooooo many good things about this blush! Great review! x

  2. Ooo that's a nice description! I don't have any Benefit blushes but I want Bella Bamba :) I do love Orgasm but if it's that similar to Coralista I think I'd rather get Deep Throat? Not sure hehe just a rambly comment hahaha sorry!

  3. its a very close match to sleek's rose gold! every time I go to buy that blush, its sold out :(
    I'd proberbly have more of a chance getting the benefit coralista blush :')


  4. I love Coralista! I own Coralista, Deep Throat, and Orgasm and I'm happy to own all three :).

  5. Coralista is, I think, the prettiest Benefit blush ever!

  6. @Corrie Thanks hun,I never had any before either, I always stayed away from them because of the price aswell. They are definitely worth the money though, they are huge and will last for ever :)

    @Yu ooh yeah I need to try out Bella bamba, I have only worn it once but I'll def post as review as soon as Ive tested it out more! Coralista is alot more subtle than Orgasm lighter in colour and with less of the gold shimmer :)
    @Joselin Oh I know what you mean, I had the hardest time getting Rose gold! If it's sold out ask a sales assistant to check the drawers under the Sleek stand, sometimes they just haven't re-stocked the shelves :)
    @To blush or not to blush Me too it's so pretty! :)
    @Romzs From what I've seen I think you might be right :)

  7. i dont own any benefit blushes but i want this one! such a warm pretty glow
