In the past six months I have turned into a big fan of Benefit Cosmetics. I always used to admire it in my local Sephora or Shoppers Drug Mart displays but never purchased a product. I had one mini size Benetint that I got so long ago and used until it was dry and ever since then I knew I had to go back for more. I stumbled upon some really amazing sets on Sephora’s website and I made the plunge over the summer, finally buying some Benefit products. I got a few of the kits that came out for back to school and I could not be happier. One of my favourite products from my purchases is CORALista.
CORALista is a really sweet coral-pink blush that pleasantly surprised me. I am totally into coral, it’s one of my favourite colours, but this blush looked a little too light and shimmery for my skin tone. I worried it would be more iridescent than actually coloured, but CORALista delivered a beautiful blush. The colour is actually really amazing, its light enough that I can layer and not worry about accidentally looking like a clown, but it has enough pigment that it isn’t invisible on my tanned skin.
It has a nice light scent as well, which I can’t quite place but I do like. I use a fluffy blush brush and don’t need much product to make it show up. It feels super light on my skin which I love, and it applies so easily. It’s a really smooth formula and I like how it blends well and looks so natural. It really does look like a warm flush on my face, which is hard to find with my skin tone.

For my first Benefit blush I am thrilled to have picker this one to purchase. It makes me so excited to try out other ones now, since this one was beyond my expectations. My only issue is the price tag since a struggling student budget cannot afford a $28 blush. I bought mine in a set and I think that’s what I will stick to for now, so hopefully I find a few more sets with amazing items to try.
Even though it came out for summer I like using it in the colder months to make myself feel like I’m on a tropical vacation somewhere, when I’m really wearing boots and mittens to go to class. With a gorgeous colour that looks so natural and smooth powder that feels great, CORALista is quickly becoming my staple blush this season.
