Name: Ultra Plush Lipgloss in Coralista
From Sephora’s website:
This dazzling lip gloss drenches your lips in brilliant shine and a burst of juicy color that’s never sticky. Loaded with crystal brilliance, color glides on smooth
What I liked:
- it provides a sheer wash of coral colour with a natural shiny finish
- texture is comfortable and non-sticky
- if you like matching your gloss to your blush, this is for you
- cute packaging
- summery melon scent
What I didn’t like:
- if you like pigmented glosses, this is not for you
- doesn’t last long on the lips
Some people think matching makeup is some sort of crime, but I love it. It’s easier and quicker for me to get ready in the morning if I don’t have to think about what gloss will go well with my blush, you know? That’s why I was very excited when, last year, Benefit released the Ultra Plush Lipglosses, a line of glosses inspired by their six most popular Boxed Powders. Even their packagings have the same design. How cute is that?
My favourite Benefit Boxed Powder is Coralista, a pinkish coral shade I got last year as a part of set, which contained also the matching lipgloss. The Coralista gloss is an orangey coral shade with no shimmers. It has a glossy finish that’s not too shiny. Colour payoff is very sheer: it gives your pout just the tiniest hint of colour that looks however, very natural and flattering.
The texture is not thick, but not lightweight either. You can definitely feel you have it on, but it is still comfortable to wear and offers just a touch of moisture, which is always nice. Also, the texture isn’t sticky at all. While most people will be happy with that, it also means its staying power is rather poor. I get only two hours of wear, so I often have to reapply it throughout the day. Oh, and did I mention that Coralista has a delicious melon scent? It makes this shade feel even more summery.
Despite its poor staying power, Benefit Ultra Plush Lipgloss in Coralista is a great shade for summer. Sheer and shiny, it feels comfortable on the lips, isn’t sticky and smells like melon. And I love being able to match my gloss to my blush.
