Wishlist Item: Benefit's Coralista Blush

03 April 2009

Believe it or not, this is still in MsChikee's Wishlist but not for long.

When you may ask? Well, let's just say Soon!

We're never really a fan of Benefit cosmetics until recently.
The first purchase from this line is from their Silky-finish lipstick - "Good to Go" which was used on Bella's character in Twilight the movie and since we have this great love on anything Twilight we gave it a go - the lipstick - and never looked back! It's a great lipstick. only a few down side but it's a winner in our books.

So back on the blush, the swatches in the photos we've seen in makeup blogs didn't do enough justice. No offense but this blush is better looking in person. Actually, this is what Nars Orgasm should look like if we were to suggest Nars cosmetics :) because it can make you weak in the knees.. (we're being cheeky here.. apologies in advance)

First impressions on:

1. the packaging - well, not a fan... it's bulky to our liking but it's cute... aesthetically speaking it's pretty. practically speaking it's bulky.

2. the brush - hhmmm where do we start... we'll again not a big fan. it doesn't seem easy to use when applying the product.

3. the colour (prior to swatching it) - it was too orange but obviously mistaken because it's such a gorgeous peachy/pink blush

Here are some makeup blogs that showcased some swatches:

Mywomenstuff - she reckon the same thing, Coralista should be what NARS Orgasm should be.

Makeupandbeautyblog - got some FOTD to look at and a swatch. This highlight that fact that's great on tanned skin hence a summer colour.

Love this blush and can't wait to tick this off the wish list!
Even if our days are soon to be cooler, this is a great colour in winter.... you know to warm things up.

If you have Benefit counters in your area, go check this out and hopefully you'll fall inlove too.

When buying a blush, ask the Makeup Artist to apply it on your cheeks. Make a decision from that and not from the swatches on your hands :)
