Review: Benefit Coralista Box Blush

The Benefit Box blushes are one of the most popular products in the brand. There are various different colours, and one of them are Coralista.
PROS: Coralista is a really pretty peachy pinky coral with a peachy gold shimmer. It is SUPER pigmented and gives off a beautiful colour on the cheeks. It comes with 12 gms of product which is even more product than the MAC Beauty Powders which comes with 10 gms of product. I used to think that 10 gms was the maximum amount of product you could get in a powder, but i guess i was wrong ;). The Coralista Blush has beautiful packaging (as seen in the picture above) and it kinda reminds me of a forest or zoo for some reason. The packaging may be made out of cardboard, but its pretty sturdy. The blush also has a beautiful floral scent which is very feminine.

CONS: Even though the blush has a beautiful scent, people can be sensitive towards these scents and can therefore suffer with harmful breakouts which obviously, nobody likes. The blush can also be really powdery and sometimes comes out looking like it has more shimmer than actual colour on the cheeks. On really dark skintones, I would avoid buying this blush and go for something a little brighter, as it won't show up on the cheeks at all.

Overall, this product really looks pretty on my tan skin, and is a lovely addition to my makeup collection. I'm pretty sure you can find dupes for this product, but i have nothing like this in my makeup collection.
Grade: 90%
Price: $28
Where you could find this product: Macy's, Nordstrom, Sephora, Ulta,
