Lemming for...

Benefit Coralista!

Okay, I know it's been around for about a year now, but I don't know, I just noticed it now! The story behind this particular lemming:

This afternoon I ventured all the way to Makati (I live hours away) to get my little girl's medicine. I commuted and took the bus and a cab...I actually wanted to take the car but that's what I get for being too lazy to renew my license. Anyway, sorry I digress, after I got the medicine from Medical Plaza Makati, I again looked for a cab. I waited and tried to hail cab after cab but no success. I didn't want to wait anymore so I thought, hey I could just walk to Glorietta (this is the nearest mall). Ooh, even though I was entirely unfamiliar with the area I thought I had the greatest idea.

So I walked and walked and walked, and walked! Damn, it was far. I was sweating like a pig. I kept hoping I'd see Glorietta soon, and after walking more and more, I finally did! YAY!!! Upon entering the mall. I headed straight to the nearest bathroom and cleaned up. Looked at myself in the mirror...surprisingly decent! And I had the loveliest flush on my cheeks from the exercise. I loved the color of this natural flush.

I tried to remember if I had any blush with a similar color, and even though I've never tried it, Benefit Coralista came to mind.

I still love my mineral blushes but I'm also looking into collecting pressed blushes. Always been a lipstick girl, but lately, I find that I have a thing for blushes. I'm not sure if I should go ahead and get Coraista now though because I have loads and loads of mineral blushes (many samples, some full sized) that I haven't really used, some I haven't even touched!

So my question to you is, what do you think of the Benefit Coralista blush? Have you tried it? Should I buy it? :)

they say its a dupe of NARS orgasm. ^_^ id get the NARS na lang since the price is bound to be the same if you buy the Coralista in the Philippines.

I am a blush fanatic and LOVE Coralista!! It is gorgeous. I bought it in May I think and wear it at least once a week. I have NARs Orgasm too and they are different. Orgasm has more shimmer and Coralista has more depth to the colour. I love coralista more. Trust me. You would love it. I think it would look gorgeous on you.


I love reading about the Philippines. I haven't been there since I last visited in 1980 when I was 8.

The coralista blush looks like a pretty peach shade, which I believe will suit you sis. Practically, I wouldn't get it if I were you as you mentioned that you've LOTS of blushes already. But it's still up to you sis if you're gonna get it or not. *wink*

By the way sis, I got a tag for you. Check it at:
