MEOW! I’m a packaging ho, and Benefit Coralista ($28) blush’s jungly, cheetah print box (don’t you just love the font?) sucked me in immediately. It makes me feel like a cat woman on the prowl!
Arriving at Benefit counters in February, this shimmery coral powder has cult beauty fave written all over it.
Coralista’s soft, shimmery coral-pink looks neutral on my cheeks, and that’s weird because most coral blushes usually look warmer on my skin tone. I’m thinking it has something to do with the cooler pink tones, like they mellow out the warmer corals. Both warm and cool beauties ought to be able to work this blush with equal flava.

Yeah, Coralista looks pretty alright, but that ain’t all — she smells great, too, just like orange soda. It’s light, though, and not overly sweet.
Coralista is everything I wanted the comparably priced Nars Super Orgasm to be, but without all the obnoxious gold glitter.
Thanks, Coralista! You made my blush dreams come true.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
