Preview & Review: Coralista Ultra Plush Lip Gloss by Benefit

   As some of you will have spotted from my post about the Benefit event I attended last week, we were given their not-yet-released Box 'O Powder Lip Glosses to try out. The glosses aren't actually released until the 28th of June in the UK! So I was super keen to review this product before I go on holiday, as it may well sway some of you to buy it on the 28th!

   First off, let me just make this clear - I'm not someone who buys lip gloss. I just prefer a more matte look on the lips in general, just personal preference! So in all honesty, if I had come across this on the Benefit counter on the 28th of June, it wouldn't be a product I'd be trying out. I think the ultimate reason for my indifference about lip gloss stems from the terrifying lip glosses that were available when I was about 12 - sticky, tacky, overly shiny messes slathered all over girls' lips. Really not attractive. Benefits' new lip glosses are a million miles away from this though, to my delight!

   The packaging of the lip glosses catch your eye, as ever with Benefit products. The glosses are available in the shades Box 'O Powders come in (so Dallas, Dandelion, etc.). The Coralista shade was my favourite upon trying out the glosses at the event, it's not shimmery, which I prefer, and it adds a subtle, soft hint of colour to the lips whilst feeling moisturising and rich, far from the thick gloopy messes of my early ventures into lip gloss! See for yourselves.


   It smells delicious - a kind of fruity fragrance I'd say! The applicator is perfect for the contours of the lips and it's quick and easy to use. If you're a lip gloss fan then you will definitely love this, even as a lip-gloss-phobic I have found myself picking it up several times, as it's way more convenient than lipstick! That in mind, it would also look gorgeous over a pinky or coraly lipstick if you wanted a glossier looking finish.

   So, if you're interested in giving these a go pop to a Benefit counter on the 28th! They are £13.50 (15ml) each, which isn't bad for a higher end brand. If I were to repurchase I'd definitely go for Coralista again, what shade are you interested in trying out?


Ps. A relatively important note! My blog is going to be taken over for the next 2 weeks by some exciting, brilliant and beautiful guest bloggers! I'm off to Tenerife to escape this bleak country that is England. God help my pale skin, my factor 50+ is at the ready (not even joking!). So, I hope you enjoy the variety of posts coming up! See you guys again soon, around the 29th I expect! xx

    1. I was really impressed by a lot of the products they showed us at the event - O haven't been to a Benefit counter in years, not too sure why! But it's made me really want to go!xx

  4. I love this colour! I really want the Coralista blusher, but I'm having to stop myself. This shade looks lovely on you.

    Hope you have a fab holiday, although I'm majorly jealous!
