One swatch and I decided this was coming home with me. I think it was the buttery texture, the subtle peachy pink shimmer, and perhaps even the slight floral smell that drew me in.
Unlike the other boxed blushes and bronzers from Benefit, the lid on this one doesn't come off completely AND has a mirror underneath so it's definitely an improvement on design.
It's much lighter than any of the blushes I own. In fact in summertime this will probably look more like a shimmer powder on me than a blush. But it's sure pretty. It's one of those blushes that goes on sheer so you can build up the intensity to some degree. It's a blush you don't have to worry about overdoing on your cheeks.
My only worry when I was getting this was that it would be too similar to Nars Orgasm but they're different enough for me to warrant the extra purchase. Nars is slightly pinker, and the glitter particles are coarser than in Coralista. Below is a comparison of Coralista to Nars Orgasm and also to Illamasqua Tremble as a reader asked me before how similar those two were to each other.
Have you tried anything from Benefit before? Any favourites?
