Benefit Haul: Hoola and Coralista Box O'Powders
I picked these up at Ulta. They retail for $28 each. At the time Ulta was having a F&F sale so I decided that I needed to get these. These have been on my wish list for so long but they are so expensive. If ULTA or Sephora has a sale, take advantage! Go to Sephora now if you're a VIB. 20% off for those who are VIB!
Packaging: I love it and I think it's cute. I'm just afraid that the boxes are going to look so worn and torn, especially at the corners. For now, I keep them nicely away in my drawer. I'm sure when I do travel with them, the packaging is going to look dented. Oh well whatever.
Hoola: Hoola is a great bronzer. I currently use NARS' Bronzer in Casino and I love that for going out at night. It's nice and dark and contours my face just the way I want it. For the day time, I find that it looks really harsh (like I'm trying too hard). Hoola is great for daytime wear. I find that it gives my face shape without looking too done up. I have used this at work several times and I really love the way it looks. It shows up beautifully and goes well with every foundation I have used. I apply this with my MAC 187 stippling brush.
Coralista: I have been wanting this for soooo long. I NEVER EVER, NOT EVER choose to wear blush. The main reason why I love wearing full coverage foundation is to hide my naturally flushed cheeks. I really don't like my cheek color naturally lol. But for some reason, I was drawn to this shade. What's great about it is that it's a nice peachy/pink shade that is so subtle and just gives a nice sheen to the cheeks. It's like a perfect mix of a blush and a highlighter. I will continue to use this daily. I have instantly fallen in love with this product. I highly recommend it. I think it will work great all skin tones. I apply this with MAC's 129 blush brush.
I starting to really love Benefit products btw. Any suggestions as to other products I should try?
