Today I'll be reviewing one of Benefit's boxed blushes, CORAlista. I chose to review this particular one because I believe that it's a really nice peachy-coral blusher for Summer. So, let's get started!
This blush has the most delicious scent I've ever come across. It's a very Tropical peachy/floral scent but it isn't over powering at all which is obviously great for those sensitive to smell. The pigmentation on this blush is absolutely amazing. One thing i noticed about some of the benefit boxed powders is how sheer they are, but this is just so pigmented, it is well worth the $30 price tag. I would describe the color as a fusion of peach, orange and pink. Creating a gorgeous pop of coral pink sheen. What i love about this so much is that it's definitely one of those day to night blushes. Coralista would make a fantastic blush for those Summer days hanging out on the beach, hanging with the girls; adding a soft coral sheen to your cheeks. But it can be layered to create a sizzling hot (pun intended) coral on your cheeks for those Summer nights partying by the light of the bonfire or enjoying a night out/in with the boyfriend.

This blush is $28 US and $36 CND. A very steep cost, but well worth it! With .42 OZ of product, which is quite a lot for a blush. Add the scent, pigmentation, great quality packaging, and the mix of fun colors for all skin tones that Benefit has to offer and $36 sounds like a steal of a purchase to me!
Whether you're staying at home all Summer or vacationing in the Bahamas this is the perfect Summer blush for you. It has fantastic pigmentation, a great scent, long lasting power, attractive packaging and is a beautiful cocktail shade of peach pink and orange. Lovely for all skin tones. I don't even think i need to do my rating scale as it is pretty much a given that i rate this product 25/25.
Okay, that's it! As you can tell, i just love this blush so much! I think I'll be reaching for it a lot once my skin warms up a little more, so be sure to look out for it in my July or even June favorites. Be sure to leave a comment below telling me what you think of this blush, follow me, chat with me on twitter and have a great night!
