Benefit Coralista

My first Benefit product:  Benefit's Box o' Powder in Coralista.  I bought this directly from Benefit's website HERE for $28 last year.  

It is described as a "warm coral-pink" blush and since I love blushes and didn't have a coral shade yet, I got this.  Isn't the box uber cute?





It comes with it's own brush on top of a plastic divider to separate it from the powder.  The brush I don't use as it doesn't get the powder well from the box because of it's shape.  I don't think this box would survive inside a kikay kit because it is made of cardboard.  It does look pretty sitting on top of the vanity table though.


The powder itself smells faintly of peaches.  Real yummy scent but good thing it doesn't last long.


swatch:

It is a bit light so I need around 2-3 swipes of this on my cheeks (I am medium toned).  Not the most pigmented blush I own but since I love the color, it'll do.  It lasts only a few hours but lasts longer with a good face primer.


FOTD:

Nikki and Nehs: It does look natural. It would pop out more I'm sure for lighter skin tones than me.

Really pretty. One of my fave blushes. However, I agree that it is not that pigmented at all.
