Yay or Nay: Benefit Coralista

yayornay

Benefit Coralista has been out quite a while now so I’m sure many of you have either picked it up or had a swatch and a play at your local Sephora or counter. The question today is was Benefit Coralista a Yay or a Nay for you?

Benefit+Coralista+5

Jump ahead to see if the Muse was Yayin’ or Nayin’ it (as if you don’t already know my answer)!

The sweet smell of tropical peach, a pigmented blushing powder that’s a cross between peach and coral, and great packaging? Obviously it’s a Yay for this Muse!

yay

I absolutely adore this stuff and think it’s probably one of the best Benefit Powders released to date, believe me I know as I’ve tried ‘em all!

beauty+battle

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!!!!!!!
super

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.

Benefit+Coralista+NARS+Super+Orgasm+2

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!

Benefit+Coralista+NARS+Super+Orgasm+3

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!

Benefit Smokin’ Eyes Palette

benefit+smokin%27+eyes+palette

Oh hello pretty Benefit palette I knew nothing about!

Check it!

Brand new the Benefit Smokin’ Eyes Palette! Hi there.

Just noticed this little guy parading around on the Benefit site and now I feel a lemming coming on. I’m smoky eye disabled so this should be just the treat for me as I always screw up a perfect nice smoky eye with loads and loads…oh and loads of shimmer so I really could use a kit giving me the how to and low down on the perfect smoky eye! Kinda looks like the Too Faced Smoky Eye Palette but without alot of the fanfare!

benefit+smokin%27+eyes+palette+1

This actually covers not only a smoky eye but also brows as well so you’re getting an all-in-one kit for lids and brows. Cool beans! The kit includes three shadows, a black eyeliner pencil, a brightener, 2 blushes, mini tweezers, and a complete lesson book for idiots like me who have a hard time getting that perfect smoked out eye look.

The question is, to order or not to order….hmmmm! Benefit still has 20% Off of an order of $50 USD or more so I should probably grab this and some Benefit Lemon Aid….whatta ya think?

I’ll probably cave sooner rather than later.
