i love benefit cosmetics, they are such great quality and have cute packaging. this blush is amazingly pigmented, a little goes a long way. even for my pale skin this gave a beautiful colour but was not overpowering, it is just a nice sheen of coral which gives a nice pinky peach cheek. it brightens my whole complexion and lasts all day long.

Subtle coral blush
I only started getting back into blush recently and got Benefit's Coralista after reading the reviews here that it isn't too pigmented. I was looking for just some subtle colour and this ticks all the right boxes. I have medium tanned skin and the coral shade gives my cheeks a fresh, natural flush without being over the top. It has quite a bit of shimmer which is why I took one star off, half the amount would have been perfect.
The packaging is really cute and conpact. I also love the brush it comes with, it gives a really good angle to define the cheeks.

Can't stop "borrowing" my mum's!
I no longer purchase Benefit's products as they aren't cruelty free, but let me tell you - that rule doesn't apply to borrowing other people's make-up!!! I am obsessed with this blush. The beautiful coral shade matches my porcelain skin perfectly, and the shimmer is not overpowering. I adore the cute packaging, even if I don't find it particularly ideal as I prefer to use my own blush brush which barely fits in the box. This blush really is flattering, and makes me look far more awake than I really am. I absolutely love it, and wish Benefit would jump on the cruelty free band wagon, as they'd be making a killing from me alone, ha ha!

Glow from within
This blush is like nothing I've ever seen before. The product gives a healthy, glowing sheen with a stunning color and creates a lively, natural look. I bought this product as part of the Cheekathon Benefit palette which includes dandelion, hoola, rockateur, dallas and CORALista which I also can't recommend enough. If using a light hand this blush can look amazing a natural and create a glow from within but is also buildable and can create a striking, bold look as well. The product has also lasted me so long seeing as I basically use it daily and have had it for around a year or two and have hardly made a dent.
Use a light hand and build it up from there don't start with too much, as with any product, and it can be hard to work with if applied too heavily

An Amazing Blush!
The Coralista blush is fantastic. I've tried many of Benefit's blushes, and this one is one of my favourites.
On my pale skin, it's a lovely splash of colour that makes me look more awake instantly. The shade is perfect, and I can see it being flattering on all skin tones.
It's very pigmented, so you only need the smallest amount on your brush. It can be built up to a stronger intensity, which doesn't take much product at all. I can see this blush lasting me a very long time!

subtle, natural colour with a glow
This is the blush that made me fall in love with blush! I had never tried a really peachy pink blush before, since I always saw people wearing cool-toned pinks (which look terrible on me). But once I discovered this blush, I absolutely fell in love. It gives just the right amount of color for my fair skin, and lasts a long while. It has a bit of a sheen, but it's more dewy than glittery. The packaging is admittedly very annoying, as I'm really not a fan of bulky packaging that makes things hard to store. But the performance of this blush makes me forgive that one flaw.

On the hunt for a new blush? The search is over! CORALista's pigmented formula is not only a pretty peachy shade - it is also complimentary for all skin tones. Whether your skin tone is fair, tan or dark, CORALista is THE blush for you. A pressed powder blush in a superb shade results in a naturally flushed and long-lasting finish that lasts for hours on end without fading. Although CORALista is not the cheapest blush available on the market, CORALista fans swear by this blush and so do I. Plus it is important to mention this blush comes packaged with a fabulous travel-size blush brush which fits perfectly inside the compact. In terms of packaging. the compact itself is small enough to take with you whilst out and about but bulkier than a standard blush compact. Try CORALista for yourself - you won't regret it.
For easy application simply swirl brush through the formula, tap off the excess and then apply to the apples of your cheeks for a perfectly blushing result.

Beautiful warm coral flushed look
I got this as a mini-sized (3g) version in my Benefit Go Tropi-coral set which also included a mini Cha Cha tint, High Beam and Coralista lip gloss.
I am a massive Benefit fan and Benetint is one of my holy grail products which I have been using for many years. So I was quite excited to try this one out as something different to my usual Benetint. This is the first powder blush I have tried from Benefit having long favoured the liquid tints.
The colour is a little warmer in brown in the pan than pink as pictured in the photo.I found this powder to be excellent quality, with little fall out in the pan. I used the accompanying powder brush to apply to the apple of my cheeks and found the brush to do a great job also. It didn't come across as streaky and with the brush was able to easily layer until I wanted to get the right colouring. I found a little bit of powder went a long way and even with a mini-sized version I think this will last me a long time especially with little fall out. I have naturally pale fair skin and this came out a warm coral colour which I really liked and added some warmth to my face.
I have also tried this with layering with Cha Cha tint and you can really get some added oomph with the combination and I find you do need less powder to achieve the desired pigmentation on your cheeks. I wouldn't wear Cha Cha tint on its own as I think the pigmentation of it is too orangey and not very flattering at all.

Good but not great.
I picked this up in the states, and have been using it from time to time. I don't mind the colour, but ironically, it's not really the right coral for me. I find it a bit dull and it seems to fall out pretty easily - like you can put it on and it just sort of seems to have vanished after a few hours.
It does look nice if you apply enough, but it just falls a bit flat. Smells nice too, bizarrely enough!
Don't use the brush that comes with it.

Didn't work for me
This blush doesn't work for me at all unfortunately, and I was really expecting to love it because it's so popular and I'm a complete coral junkie.
But this shade doesn't work on my colouring (I'm light/medium in winter and medium in summer). It's far too pale and icy on me, and I need to use heaps to get it to show up. This means that it looks super powdery on my skin and shows texture dreadfully. I kept this for six months and used it in Project Pan before giving it away - I just couldn't bare to use it anymore!
It's nice enough to apply and is finely milled, and the colour (what little there is of it) lasts well. But as mentioned, if I want to get a decent shade from this blush, I need to use far too much and it starts to look chalky, frosty and powdery on my face.
My view is that this blush is not worth the price. Better options exist (high end and budget) and I also find the Benefit boxed packaging to be bulky, so it's not something I want taking up room in my collection.
Test this first to check the colour suits you - don't rely on online swatches.

This blush is a beautiful coral pinky shade that gives my skin a healthy glow. It's my go to summer blush. It has a glow to the skin without not glittery or chalky. It's super easy to blend and would suit every skin tone and is suitable for every day wear. I love the packaging of all of Benefit's boxed blushes it gives the blush a character. It's great value for money, you'll never run out as a little goes a long way. The texture of this blush is super smooth and the product itself smells amazing.

One of my fave Benefit products.
Lovely product wrapped in super cute packaging with complimentary mirror and brush. I love the colour and texture of this blush. It has a slight pearly sheen to it that makes it fantastic for highlighting cheeks with that added bit of colour. It comes out of the box quite powdery but blends easily onto cheeks. The compact brush that comes with it is just the right shape for precise application, though another brush may be required for blending. My only complaint is that it is not pigmented enough for my skin tone (which is quite light). Possibly very well suited to pale beauties.

Good for beginners
I am a bit underwhelmed by this product. This blush is a nice coral colour with a slight shimmer and can look quite nice, however it is only somewhat pigmented. I find this doesn't last particularly well on the face throughout the day and I don't think it's worth the money as there are better products out there. This is a universally flattering shade and the soft colour is perfect for beginners who are looking to get into make up or those who only want sheer pigmentation.
Don't bother with the brush or mirror in the box.

I love this blush. I have medium to dark tanned skin (depending on the time of the year) and this colour seems to compliment my skin colour regardless of how dark or light I am. There is a very subtle sheen to this blush which makes it a great highlighter as well as a blush. The colour is buildable and the texture of the powder is very silky, so it feels nice to apply and to wear.
I don't usually use the brushes which are supplied with cosmetics and opt for my own brushes, but this is one of the only products that I think the brush provided really is the right tool for the job.
If coral colours generally compliment your skin tone then I believe you will be happy with this product.
Try applying it with the brush provided

Beautiful coral flush
I have loved benefits boxed blushes for a while now so I was excited to try this one, and I was pleasantly surprised! Coralista is a very pretty coral colour with a slight glitter running through it (it's not chunky glitter, just enough to add a nice sheen). I am very pale and a lot of blushes are too dark or wash me out but this one is natural and suits me beautifully. Benefit packages their blushes in quite a large quantity and it will take me a while to use up this one but when I do I will most definitely repurchase!
Buy online from www.benefitcosmetics.com because the blushes are $28 USD compared to $51 AUD

Love at first sight
An amazing peach flush on the cheeks. Gives a nice subtle healthy glow on your face. I think this shade will suit all skin tones. Looks like a lot of shimmer but sits just right on the skin. Perfect for spring and summer!

Perfect Everyday Blush
This blush is one of my favourites- it has great pigmentation, is a beautiful shade that catches the light perfectly and would work well on most skin tones. Because of the great pigmentation a little bit goes a long way so it is worth the money as you won't be replacing it every few months. The blush has the slightest shimmer in it which is barely noticeable unless you're in the right light where it acts as a beautiful highlight also. This shade will be loved by people with every skin tone as it gives a blush that is so natural and sweet.
Start on the apples of your cheeks then apply upwards towards your eye area as this will really extenuate your cheek bones and bring out that natural highlight.
Any day and everyday. It's so beautiful and natural you can really get away with it anywhere at anytime.

soft, natural and stand out, elegant for every day and can build up for night's out
I love this product so much!
i use it every day, and take it out with me to build up before a summers night out.
build able and natural, i can use it on all of my friends as it suits all skin completions.
You can add shimmer, and dust over cheeks for a natural glow, with or without a foundation base.
Use over a dewy foundation, to give a slight matt finish on cheek bones.
everyday, build able for night time.
wear without a foundation base, for a peached, highlighted look for the beach, or out in the sun.
I love this blush. I ordered it from the US site when the exchange rate was quite favourable and wish I had got more. I have nearly used up the whole thing. It is a great sheer/subtle colour with a lovely glowy shimmer. I think it is particularly flattering for pale skin in the spring/summer. Lots of people don't like the brush that comes with it but I think it's really good and have used it the whole time I have had the product.
go nuts, its pretty much fool proof!

Not bad at all
I bought this blush because I liked the packaging. The blush itself is quite good. As the name suggests, it is a coral colour and it has a lot of shimmer in it, which personally I am not a huge fan of.
The colour itself is quite nice and pigmented and stays on the whole day even on my oily skin. It applies smoothly over foundation and looks very natural and gives me a glow.
