But more on what it's inside. The color is amazing! Not only is the color amazing, but it was a fresh scent to it. I loved using it in the spring and summer months. One of its flaws is that it's not a long-wear type of blush, especially once I was outside in the heat. Makeup is never really perfect once you're in the heat, but somehow we are always hopeful, lol. I do like that the box comes with it's own brush, so it's perfect to carry with you for a quick touch-up; but, the second flaw is that the brush is quite stiff. Also, I find that when applied, it looks like its own separate layer; it doesn't blend well with the foundation.
For the budget-minded beauty junkies, CORALista is $28 and comes in a box, albeit a very cute box (with a brush). My new blush, tarte's 24-hour Amazonian clay costs $25 and comes in a compact with a mirror (no brush). Not a huge difference in price.
I'm still a huge fan of Benefit cosmetics, and their boxed powders are good - for example, Hoola is one of my favorite matte bronzers! I just happened to find something better for an everyday blush. I hope Benefit can find a way to make their blushes last longer and blend better with the other face makeup.
