Benefit Coralista

What's this I hear and see? A new boxed blush from Benefit? Benefit Coralista!!

I'm all over it!

The Muse happened to be visiting Sephora's Beauty and the Blog this morning and this snatched up her attention on the double! Beauty and the Blog is reporting this new coral colored blush from Benefit as a "candy color"!

Mmm the Muse likey alot!

I'm unsure when this will be releasing but expect a review as soon as the Muse can get her grubby, greedy little hands on it! I suspect they will hit us with this after the Holiday for the Spring Collection but we shall see!

Either way it looks divine and the Muse wants some thanks very much!

How about you?

Love it?

Want it?

NEED it?

Tell the Muse!

Looks nice! I´ve been eyeing these boxed blushes by benefit forever, especially Dandelion and Dallas, but I think the packaging is so impractical.
Do you think they are worth the money?

I have 'em all *blush*

I actually like the packaging b/c they contain the mess! You know how when you swipe your brush across blush it kicks up a ton of product and causes a bit of a mess? The box actually contains all that :) which is why I love the packaging hehe!

I really love Dandelion and Thrrob..Dallas is equally lovely :)

I think they are worth it..I've always had great success with each one they came out with...Hula was the only one that didn't totally agree with my tone but aside from that I love 'em all :)

this looks very promising!! I've dried Dandelion and it didn't show up on me. I loved Georgio but it didn't really work as a blush. More of an all over powder. Dallas looked kinda ashy on me. And throbb was a little too pink. This! This is my kind of color! Oh no O_O

Neeeds it, needs it bad :P
It looks absolutely perfect, is it possible they´ve made an even better "dandelion"?

Anonymous Paige said... makes me want to return to Maui again for a winter holiday. I love coral colors! So pretty and hope that this one will work on me. Out of the boxed blushes, Dallas is the only one that works well and I luv the color. It works well in summer and winter. I have to agree too that the box does contain the mess...actually the packaging is rather ingenious except for ratty brush. Thanks for the scoop:)

Blogger the Muse said...

hi paige!

Me too me too! :) They all work fab on me except for 10 :P

Everyone HATES the brush :) but I kinda dig's a bit scratchy but it does work well at picking the product up!

Cheers for the box ;)

Thanks for the comment Paige always enjoy talking to you!

I want this...I've been looking for a coral/peach powder blush for quite a while now...while I am a big too embarrassed by the the name of nars...ahem...orgasm...

(maybe I will wait until you have a review up...) I have thrrrob and I love how sheer it goes on yet you can still see a good deal of color with just one wipe...the brush isn't bad's not that soft but at least it picks thing up and doesn't scratch.

hi anonymous!

Really it's not honest :) It catches all the fall out really well!

Blogger the Muse said...

morning Citrine !

LOL!!!!! Aw you're too cute :) indeed...orgasm doesn't embarrass me too much but ask for NARS Deep Throat and I get a tad bit red in the face lol!

I agree about thrrob..nicely pigmented and works well! I'm glad someone else is on board with the brush..I actually kinda dig the brush..although they may have to work at making it a bit softer :)

Review coming as soon as I can get my greedy hands on it :)

Hey, muse, could you do a review on the other Benefit box of powders like "georgia" and "hoola?" Thank you so much! I read your blog religiously and take your reccomendations very seriously. Also, you mentioned certain Benefit products like "lemon-aid" and "get even" in reviews of products like "that gal" and "dandelion" but you've never made a seperate review for them. Could you? Pretty please? With "Make up for Ever glitter" on top? Thank you so much!

Blogger the Muse said...

hi anonymous!

Sure I'll review them for you :) Thanks so much for stopping by and reading my blog, greatly appreciate it :)

I'll be sure to do lemon aid and get even as well :)

LOL considering you're tting Make Up For Ever Glitter On Top I'll surely do them!

Expect them sometimes this week or next!



Thanks for the comment!

Hi! I tried this one on two days ago at my local Benefit boutique. The powder is very fine in texture, but the color is very very similar to MAC Joyous beauty powder or even Nars Torrid. It's highly pigmented as well. I didn't get this one since I'm more of a NARS fan and the color is dupeable. The packaging is super cute though! Hope this helps. The Benefit SA told me that it's exclusive to their stores right now, but will hit the counters early February.

hi again erin!

sorry again for the delayed reply :) I'm HAPPY to hear it's pigmented! I could just spit with joy hehe! This is great news :) I def love nars more but I still ordered this as I adore the powders and collect 'em :)

I'm looking forward to finally getting it as they released a bit early on the benefit website!

Thanks for the scoop!
