Benefit Go Tropicoral Kit

by - 9/20/2013

I have always wanted the Benefit Coralista blush because I have seen it so many times reviewed and favorited on other beauty blogs and in Youtube. And I think it is such a beautiful shade, as you can see I am going gaga over orange right now.

Instead of getting me the blush which costs P1600, I decided to get the kit instead. It contains 4 mini products at P1500 (bought at Trinoma) and I thought it gives more bang for the buck. If you are to spend that much amount on makeup, you might as well get as many as you can. 😀 This way I get to try out the other products too.

Everything about this purchase is so adorable! I'll walk you through it, as if you're watching me unboxing it. :D

  1. The Benefit bag my purchase came in. The print is so adorable!
  2. The box from the front. Looks similar with the packaging of the kit.
  3. The back of the box. It shows what the kit's contents are.
  4. Flap detail. Isn't that leopard print absolutely gorgeous? And look at that sheen!
  5. The Tropicoral Kit. Same look as the box's, and the print at the sides.
  6. The kit when opened. The top opens up to reveal the contents snugly placed inside.
  7. Inner box details. That monochromatic orange leopard print on the inside. Attention to details such as this is what makes you realize that what you have on your hands is indeed expensive.
  8. Mirror. When the Tips and Tricks flaps are opened, the mirror is revealed. 

CHACHA TINT: mango tinted lip and cheek stain
HIGH BEAM: luminescent complexion enhancer

Swatches and Review:

Left to right: chacha tint, high beam, coralista blush, coralista lipgloss

The Cha Cha Tint looks very natural both on the lips and cheeks. I love the nice glow it gives to the face. They say it's mango colored. Umm, our mangoes here in the Philippines don't look that orange. They're more yellowish than orange. Nonetheless, it still looks very pretty to me / on me. 😉

The High Beam highlighter could easily be overdone, like in my swatches photo. I have to make sure I don't put too much or else it would look white instead of just highlighting a feature. And of course, I have to make sure to blend very well. I don't find myself wearing High Beam all the time because I still have a problem with oiliness, and sometimes putting on a highlighter just makes me look more oily than glowing. Or maybe because the product just blends with the oil on my face?

The Coralista is absolutely divine. It's not easy to overdo it, even when the brush they've provided is pretty small (it is very dense though). It has this pale coral hue that isn't too "in your face" when put on. It also has a slight shimmer that doesn't make me look shiny. And don't forget about the scent! I never thought a blush could have a scent. I have heard reviews about this having a nice scent, but I was still surprised when I smelled it. It is very subtle but sweet like candy. Whenever I open the kit, the scent just wafts out of it. 😀

The Ultra Plush Coralista looks very pretty when first applied. It does indeed look plush. But I have noticed that within an hour my lips would dry out. I'm not a fan of lip gloss, because of the stickiness and weight, but I am still using this product because it looks great. Lol. I wish it isn't too drying though. Could I use this over a lip balm? Wouldn't that be weird?

So that's it for my long post. As for my verdict section, I am not doing it this time. I am not planning on finishing this kit soon. No plans for repurchasing as of yet. I am just trying to enjoy it the best I could.

So see you on my next post! Don't hesitate to let me know what you think. :)
