I received a mini version of Benefit Coralista in a magazine a while ago. I think beauty gifts in magazines are a great way to try out products without having to commit lots of money to a product you might not like.
I love lipgloss as it makes my lips look fuller. I only really started trying out matte lip colour when I started blogging. I usually go for lipgloss because it tends to last a long time on the lips compared to creamy lipstick so there’s fewer touch-ups. I also like lipgloss because depending on the colour, when it fades is doesn’t look to bad. The downside to lipgloss is that it can be sticky. Long hair plus windy weather plus sticky lipgloss equals complete mess!
Coralista is a sheer coral colour which gives my dark lips a very slight orange tint. The shine is subtle rather than fully glossy or glassy. It feels silky and smooth and is not sticky at all. It has a hint of a strawberry jelly taste which I like.
The downside for me is that as it is so light, it doesn’t last long on the lips at all. It fades away far too quickly for my liking which takes away a benefit of lipgloss that I like.
I have concluded that although this lipgloss is not right for me at all, it’s for all of you out there who want to wear gloss without the stickiness. It’s definitely good to have the choice!
