Benefit Coralista Blush Box.

28 March, 2012

Benefit Coralista – £23.50

I’ve had my eye on this blusher for some time now, especially as I know it’s a favourite of the Pixiwoo girls. I love coral blushers with a bit of a sheen so I knew I would be a big fan of this.

I have about three or four Benefit boxed blushers now and I love them. They’re not great for travelling (unless you use the brush that comes with them, which I never do) as they’re slightly bulky but I reach for them often and I love the quality, finish and packaging and I’m happy to part with my money every now and again.

Coralista really did not disappoint, although I have probably more than one blusher in my collection (well there is rather a few now!) which is very similar to this, Coralista is probably the most coral one which means it’s totally justified.
I think I’ll use this a lot more in summer when I have a tan as it looks a bit more pink against my (very) fair skin tone. It’s so easy to blend in to create a gorgeous look.

What do you think of Coralista?

    Was eyeing this up in John Lewis yesterday, it’s so pretty! Hate the price/ packaging though :/ x

  • Sophmog

    I love Coralista! Although the box is a bit battered now. I think I prefer it to Hervana, or at least the brush that comes with Coralista is much better.

  • Makeup and Macaroons

    I’ve swatched Coralista so many times but ended up passing on it as haven’t been too impressed but it seriously looks gorgeous on you! I might need to give it another swatch. PS love the lipstick you have on, is it Viva Glam Nicki?

    Your blush always looks perfect, do you mind me asking what brush you use and how you apply it?

  • AnGeLmArY

    I think that this is absolutely gorgeous!
    It’s in my wish list for summer…
    I love your blog! Kisses from Greece!

  • Laura

    This looks lovely on you! I always worry that coral can sometimes look orange, but I love the pink-y tone of this! Lovely!

  • Sarah

    I’ve wanted this forever!

  • Angelica

    This blusher looks lovely on you. I’m planning to get one of their blushers, but I’m not sure which one I want. x

  • Milly

    Coralista is possibly one of my favourite blushers – yt is a rio carnival in a box. I love the peachy-golden sheen it has to it, and it suits you so much. You little beaut! xxx

  • kupferfarben

    so beautiful :)
    I don’t have any benefit blushes yet but hopefully it will change this summer!

  • Sian Lacey

    Woah, that’s a lot of money for a blusher. Is there much product in the box?

    It looks lovely on you, perfect with your skin tone!

  • pinkyliciousvita

  • Emily

  • mollyy

    thats such a pretty blush, ive never tried a benefit blush but i really want to try this one :) xxx

  • Rachel

    I adore Benefit blushes, and I really loved Coralista, but I never replaced my box once I had used it up – I think it must have been that I already have a great Benefit coral in 1/4 of my Sugarbomb!

  • Shabna

    I wasn’t impressed with this at first because I feel like it’s more shimmer than colour but I’ve suddenly come to love it! I get to skip highlighter with it and it’s just perfect for summer! It looks amazing on you x

  • Clay

    It looks really good on you ! I have pale skin too and I also wait for Summer to use my most daring colors ! xx

  • Beth

    its so pretty! i just found a blush of a similar colour to this in a palette in the bottom of my make up drawer, love it xx

  • alicebea

    i’ve had this blusher…definatly one of my faves! :)

  • Tori.

    i have coralista and its stunning, perfect colour for summer :) x

  • lucillejoy

    I love benefit blushes! I always go for a coral tone as it seems to flatter me the most, I’m very fair too, looks so gorgeous and ‘fresh’ on you, would be perfection with a bit of a tan, tempting!

  • Sarah

    It looks lovely on you! I adore Coralista – it suits me a lot better with a tan too. I’ve recently bought Bella Bamba which I’m loving too (your post on it from a while ago swayed me lol) xx

  • Zoe Amelia

    Lovely Summer colour :)
    I only own 1 Benefit blush box so far, Hervana!

  • India

    Hey! Loving the coral blush for summer :) I did a post on a much cheaper dupe to this if anyone wants to have a look?

    Lots of love, India xx

  • ♥mldvs

    This is such a stunning colour, I love the look of it :) xx

  • ~prettypenny~

    Your makeup is flawless! Envious. Benefit makeup is lovely I find. Nice post :)


  • RuBee

    This is my favourite benefit blusher. I keep alternating between this and nars deep throat. X

  • emmabovary

    That suits you so well, I had thought about picking it up but chose Hervana instead!

  • Hev

    It really suits you! I’m stuck between so many different Benefit blushers, I think I’ve decided which one I want and then will see a review like this one and find myself back at square one! x

  • meg

    it looks amazing on you! love the colour on your skintone x
    please look at my blog:

  • Charlotte

    This is my favourite blusher everrrr! Looks gorgeous all year round but especially in the summer with a bit of a tan! X

  • the cake hunter

    such a great colour. I’m currently addicted to my bobbi brown cheek and lip tint but might have to hunt down coralista too x


    I love it! It looks a little like Nars Orgasm maybe? Very lovely on you.

  • Emine Pasa

    I have this, its amazing!!

  • rubysoho

    I’m desperate to get my hands on this, it’s justifying spending so much on a blush that’s the problem! x

  • kirstyb

    ah love this

  • theskinnyblondegirl

    You look BEAUTIFUL. Love the colour! Can never have too much of a good thing – or a good blush shade!


  • nik

  • HSK

    This blush looks gorgeous but I’m always a bit unsure about benefit blushers because of the cost…I might have to go scout this out though :)
    on a side note, I love your blog! Its super pretty (always appealing to a girlie girl like me) and your posts are really informative :) Theres not many blogs where everything mentioned is something i would consider myself!

  • Ashley Perry

    I got one of these, I don’t mind the price since apparently it’s supposed to be good. But this one doesn’t seem to last long on my face. I usually have to reapply every few hours, also I have to put a lot on in order for the pink to show up on my skin.
    I had to go out and buy my trust Nars ‘deep throat’ blush again which usually lasts almost all day.

  • pocketful of make up.

    I know I’m a little late 😀 but I just got coralista and oh my god is this beautiful! I thought this was just another peachy blusher in my collection but it has this beautiful golden sheen and I think it is fab for summer. love it!
