NEW! Benefit CORALista Ultra Plush Lip Gloss: Review & Swatches!

Benefit has been on a roll with releasing new products lately, and one of their latest launches is lip glosses to go with their boxed powders line.  Benefit has debuted six new "Ultra Plush Lip Glosses" to match their six bestselling boxed powders.  Today I'll be showing you the new CORALista gloss!

These glosses come in a standard squeeze tube.  I'm usually more of a wand applicator type girl, but I like this because even though the plastic applicator part tends to get really messy, it can be washed and cleaned really easily.

Here is CORALista Ultra Plush Lip Gloss next to the CORALista boxed powder.

Here are swatches of the gloss next to the powder.  On my arm, the gloss comes across as much more coral, and quite a bit darker than the boxed powder.

However, when applied to my lips, it is a beautiful coral sheen!  The formulation is one of the least-sticky I have ever used, and it feels really moisturizing.  The color is one of those "my lips but better" shades: something that is really natural but makes my lip color look really nice.  I'm in love!

Overall, I am thrilled with this product.  This one is going to be on my lips all summer long.  If you like sheer squeezy glosses with zero stickiness to them, this is one worth taking a look at.  These glosses retail for $16 and are available wherever Benefit products are sold!

What kind of packaging to you like most on lip glosses?  Squeeze tube or wand applicator?

  1. I prefer wand applicators but I like this too! I have the Dandelion one & I love that it's not at all sticky! Review on my blog! Xx

  2. I bought this exact one in the UK and am so happy with it too! The original Benefit glosses I really didn't like, I find them very lumpy but this is wonderful! xxxx
