Am I late for this coral blush when almost all of the beauty bloggers I know tried this blush years ago? Haha!
It's better late than never!
I've been using CORALista for a week now and I must say I just love the shade! 

It's a perfect blend of pink and peach that gives you a natural looking healthy flush, yummy!

Check out how it looks on the white bristles
I personally use the Box o' Powder brushes because it fits my cheekbones perfectly and it distributes the product nice and evenly. Just make sure to sanitize your brushes!

Benefit CORALista swatch

Compared to other blushes I own, CORALista has the less shimmer in it so it's refreshing for me to use this. I always use blush with shimmer- some are loaded with shimmer, some are lightly sprinkled but CORALista has the less. 

CORALista lasts on me for a good whole day given that I just conveniently stay inside the office the whole day but we still have to test how it fares when I go out for some extreme commuting in Metro Manila. 

Most of the time, I prefer unscented products but like '10', CORALista has a light floral citrusy scent that I love so this is an exception to my pet peeve.


  1. Pretty! I love the scent too. The only scented blush I ever really liked. :P

  2. it's ok i'm late too haven't tried this yet :(

  3. @Pammy 2 thumbs up for a great blush! =D

    @Crytal Aw... It's okay, there are tons of products we haven't tried yet!

  4. Enjoy Coralista! :) Really warm shade! I don't think I can personally pull it off though.

    I remember buying Benefit Thrrrob before, but I got a fake one so I returned it (even the seller didn't know it was fake)! =( So no, I don't own anything from Benefit now.

  5. I love the shade! how much is it? and is it still available in Beauty bar? cos when i had my last visit there, i was looking for it :/ where did you bought it?

  6. @Peachy Pink Sisters sorry to hear about the fake benefit product you got but at least you figured it out that it was fake before it could do more harm to your skin!

    @allsecretsrevealed I bought it at Sephora in US ^.^ I'm not so sure if Beauty Bar carries Benefit though =(

  7. I hate to say this but I've been super wary of Benefit stuff ... could your Coralista be fake? It looks just slightly different from the picture at Sephora:

    1. Zoom in and look at the font of "Coralista" - the original has slightly smaller text and thicker black borders.

    2. The "explosion" shape - the original has the silver lining uneven and shaped differently... I think this is the most telling. I think the original's silver lining is also shiny.

    3. The leopard print is smaller on the original and their alignments are different.

    I don't want to be a bringer of bad news but ... I once bought a fake Benefit moonbeam so I am really *crazy* about making sure I pay good money for the right stuff. Thanks :)

  8. @theotherworldy haha! thanks for the concern dear =)that's just my cellphone camera's bad performance, i bought this straight and sealed from Sephora with my cousin's help so you don't have to worry about anything check this out:

    but really thank you very much for the concern! I'm touched ^.^

  9. This shade is such beautiful! Also the brush looks very useful too

  10. @Lilladylife love the shade too! ^.^

    @Anastacia the brush is very useful indeed, I'm super duper loving the shade myself =)
