Disadvantages: Quite small for the price paid
I first came across this when I was desperately on the hunt for a new blush. Mine had just burst all over my bag and I had sworn off Rimmell for life! Stomping around Debenhams in a huff with life, I caught the eye of a Benefit saleswoman. I tried to make a run for it but I was cornered! One test off this blush however.....
Coralista comes in a square and very colourful little cardboard box, with a pull off lid. The colours caught my eye first off with the pinks, greens and leopard print details. How very fancy! The box is tiny and fits in the palm of my hand and is quite light. From this alone really you would expect the worst.....
Underneath the lid lies a mini blush brush with a wooden brown handle and white soft bristles. However, as the brush isn't round as a normal blusher brush would be, application with this brush leaves a very noticeable line on the cheeks, which needs to be blended out. As brushes go though I found it was good as it is soft and doesnt wear away too quickly as I have found happens with some
Coralista is unsurprisingly a coral coloured blush, which for me leans more pink than orange on the coral spectrum. It has a touch a shimmer which is great if you like a bit of sparkle and it definitely adds to the overall wow factor of the product. My skin tone would be fairly light and I applyed the coralista over my foundation and bronzer to give my cheeks a bit of colour. It definitely looked more natural as some blushers can give your cheeks a tangoed look!
At first I thought there wasn';t much blush in the box itself as it looks quite empty. However it has lasted me now over 3 months and is still going strong, considering i wear this daily, I find this a huge plus in a blush ;) Texture wise I loved it also. It doesnt cause too much dust and there isnt an excess to be blown off. It feels nice and isnt chalky or heavy.
I found the blush to last an average amount of time. I put it on in the morning and it lasts perfect for about 5 hours before I top it up. I paid Euro35.99 (around £25-27) which is quite pricey but as a whole is definitely worth it if you want a quality blusher to last you a good amount of time. This is for a 12g box. I found it can be removed easily with a make up wipe also.
As a whole, out of ten I would give it a seven. I mark it down based mainly on price as the product itself is outstanding and by far the best blush I have tried.
Summary: Overall a great buy and definiely worth the money
