Beauty Battle: NARS Super Orgasm VS Benefit Coralista


Pitting NARS Super Orgasm against Benefit Coralista could cause for an interesting fight dontcha think?

Some fans of both are fond of saying how similar the two are but the question is if NARS Super Orgasm went up against Benefit Coralista who would win?

Jump ahead to find out!


Let the Beauty Battle begin!!!!!!!

Now NARS Super Orgasm is considerably more pricey when compared to it's contender. Coralista is 0.42oz and has a $28 USD price tag. That's nearly double the product for $3 USD more. Uh oh NARS, Benefit could be beating you out when it comes to price and size.

I hear tales of woe when it comes to Super Orgasm how glittery and shimmery it is, what a mess it is, etc...but the Muse thinks these are all blasphemy! Super Orgasm is much more pigmented when compared to it's sister color, Orgasm. And yes it does have a whole lot of shimmer going on and chunks of gold glitter however it blends out to a nice satin finish minus any crazy shimmer. The shade is a glowing peach that's simply stunning to say the very least! Uh oh Coalista look out Super Orgasm is creeping up on you here!




Now Coralista is undoubtedly the better deal of the two products. Nearly double the size of Super Orgasm with a price tag of merely $3 USD more makes it a considerably better option when it comes the quantity but what about quality?

Smelling like a sweet tropical peach sporting some seriously cute packaging and having amazing color pay off all make Benefit Coralista an incredible blush! The Muse is fond of telling everyone and anyone that will listen that it's one of Benefit's crowning jewels! Truly a great powder.


And the fight begins.....

NARS Super Orgasm starts off with a pop of peach, a hefty price tag, but little weight to back itself up! Benefit Coralista throws the first punch with a crazy peachy finish, a price tag to please, and enough weight to sink a heavy punch into Super Orgasm's face!


And the winner is....

Oh please jebus don't make me choose between two of my very favorite blushes! Ugh it's so hard!

It's difficult to choose between these two incredible products! Both are simply amazing to say the least but if I'm honest with myself Benefit Coralista has the better color pay off, the most bang for my buck, plus who can resist a blush scented like a tropical peach? Actually in the end the peach scent threw the fight and made Benefit Coralista our winner!


So tell me....

Who's your winner?

Is NARS Super Orgasm the best girl for the job?

Or do you favor Benefit Coralista?

Tell the Muse!

Still not convinced Coralista is a winner? Check out both my reviews of NARS Super Orgasm and Benefit Coralista to make your final choice!

I can't believe you didn't award Super Orgasm any points for the sheer cheekiness of its name. How much more fun to say "I'm wearing super orgasm" than it is to say "I'm wearing Coralista"

Verve- Aromaleigh's version of the very beautiful NARS "Orgasm" blush. It's peach, it's pink, it's warm red- all with iridescent tones of warmth and gold as the light reflects...

Ooo. could you post swatches of Coralista, Orgasm and Super Orgasm? I have both NARS but itching to get Coralista but but but.... a sensible part of my brain says NO.
