Benefit Coralista

Hello lovelies!

It's currently my exams week and today I just finished taking 3 exams! WOOHOO! Not saying I finished my exams with confidence but make up helps "make up" for that lack. And one of those confidence boosters that I am currently using is my Benefit Coralista Blush.

The sheer beauty of this blush has helped me put a glow in my otherwise dull, sleep-deprived days.

I just adore this blush. I first met this blush in one of Lisa Eldridge's make up videos and decided I could use a little coral blush in my stash.

So one of the many things I love about this blush is the packaging. I think they just changed the packaging recently but I am loving this one. It gives you that empowered feeling, and also looks quite chic.

I also LOVE the accompanying brush. It's really smooth and gets just the right amount of product. I must say, it's the first time that I liked the accompanying brush of ANY blush I've bought so far.

Here are photos of the product.

Here is the swatch.

And here is Dawn's pic when I let her get first dibs on the blush.

I don't think I need to detail much on the product as it's one of Benefit's mainstay blush. It very versatile as you can use it when you want that natural healthy glow, or for more sophisticated late night looks, or for dramatic looks too.

Just really wanted to share with you what helps me get through the stress of exams and keep me looking fresh and hot (ehem) instead of looking sleepless and haggard.

How about you guys? What keeps you looking beautiful under pressure?

    @hazel: yes it's build-able. I bought it for 26 dollars at canada tax exclusive. But stff there are more expensive so I'm not sure how much it costs locally.

    @sam lanuza: it's a very unique looking brush and it's really soft. :)
