Benefit TropiCORAL

Benefit is my all-time favourite makeup brand- seriously, nothing compares. I could not recommend a better brand to anybody who asks, no matter their skin type or age. Being a huge fan of their kits, I couldn't stop myself when this amazing kit went on sale.

I've heard a lot about the CORALista blush, but since I don't use a substantial amount of blush I thought it would be a waste to spend £23.50 on it, knowing I wouldn't really get my money's worth. 
Instead, I prefer to invest in these kits, with much more 'usable' product sizes, that I know I could get through. In this way, I get to try out not one but four of their products in one, which definitely means you get more for your money. 

What's included in the kit?
  • Cha Cha Tint (4ml)
  • High Beam (4ml)
  • CORALista blush (3g)
  • Ultra Plush CORALista lipgloss (6.5ml)
I've always been intrigued by Benefit's products like Cha Cha Tint and High Beam, so I was happy to have received them in this kit, to give them a try. From my first few uses I think I'll really like Cha Cha Tint, however as I already have quite shiny skin, High Beam is too 'glow-y' for me. 

Favourite product? CORALista blush, definitely- it's a very buildable blush which means it can be adapted to be worn for every occasion. (I also really like the brush, which looks cheap and plasticky, when really it's quite a good brush)
Least favourite product? I don't really wear lipgloss because I find them to all be very sticky, and while the Ultra Plush CORALista lipgloss isn't sticky (yay) it smells really fruity, something which I don't like but I'm sure others would.

I love this kit, and I'm thinking about investing in another of Benefit's Box O' Powders- but which one to choose?!


  1. I totally need this palette! Looks amazing! I agree, Benefit is one of my all time favourites too. x
