Gorgeous bronzer for contouring, my go to bronzer, along with nars Laguna, lovely texture, I use the brush it has in the box for contouring, and the real techniques multi task brush for an all over bronzed look.

It's a great product for a natural, glowy look. It gives that peachy-pink look but it isn't that pinky or peachy that you look like a doll, overall a great product but after a while; after a while/ after it oxidize it turns darker and turned kind of dark but again overall great product

I really like this product - I have a mini instead of the full size, and I took it travelling as it was small and I wouldn't be too upset if it broke. Well I ended up really loving it! It's really quite long wearing - on me, other blushes are pretty much gone by the end of the day, but this is still there, and mostly intact. I was obsessed with the limited edition MAC Supercontinental blush, and now I rarely us that and reach for this instead!

I'm left quite disappointed by this shade. It's pigmented, but it's rather powdery - I often find I pick up too much product, or not enough (then I go back and get too much!) It "sticks" where you apply it, then I find it never looks seemless - it's hard to get a soft edge. I almost never reach for this product and will probably give it away to someone at some stage.

This powder smells absolutely divine, but the problem is the pigmentation. I have light to medium skin and it takes several swipes to make the colour show on my cheeks (and I wear a very moderate amount of blush, nothing excessive). The brush is nice, soft, handy. Even though I love the sceny, and how it always looks natural and has a gorgeous, luminous finish, I won't recommend.

As someone who is rather fair skinned, I tend to shy away from blushes out of fear of looking like a clown, but this blush is great for me for everyday wear. Using some of this on the apples of my cheeks adds a natural looking glow without making me look "made up".

This is a beauty guru favorite for a reason! I keep this in my kit and my makeup bag. For one thing, its a great product to have in your kit, its a color that universally works for pretty much anybody. Application is easy, it comes with a brush which is perfect for contouring and it goes on seamlessly and is extremely blendable, it blends really nicely with blush. Along with contouring I have to say it makes a wonderful bronzer for all around your face. I also really like how it has little to no scent, a lot of bronzers have a beachy scent and I find it uneccessary and annoying at times. My go to bronzer has to be nonscented I just wish that this bronzer had a teensy bit more color payoff and much less fallout, but i have to say its my fave out of eveything ive tried. I have recommended it to a ton of people

I was looking for a rose gold blush to add to my extensive blush collection. I had toyed with the idea of purchasing one from the NARS sexual appeal collection but I was eventually won over Rockateur. I applied with a wide brush and brushed it onto the apple of my cheeks. Straight away it provided me with a shimmering healthy glow. The product is buildable and like a lot of the other Benefit powders applies like a dream and it is very hard to over do it. The shade is gorgeous a light pink with subtle hints of rose gold shimmer. The only negative I am going to give this product is that there is less in it than the other Benefit powders.

First of all, there maybe should be a category for packaging because this square BOX and stupid brush are...well...stupid, though I have to admit that the brush is good for applying contour powder on those rare occasions when I try to contour. I got a full size box of Coralista from Sephora in some points bonus (I think) - perhaps when the packaging was being changed (mine has a totally separate lid rather than one that is attached). It is a pretty colour but coral and peach blushes just are not my best shades so I am not all that thrilled with how it looks on me, especially if I'm wearing a stronger lip colour, since I tend to go for berry, blue-red, deep pink, etc. and none of these looks great with coral on my cheeks. If I'm just wearing gloss or something like Revlon Berry Smoothie, it looks better, though.

This is a great product for fair people who don't want to overdo it! It gives a lovely pink glow that is perfect for everyday wear. It's my go-to blush!

Highly versatile and easy to wear for both day and night, Bella Bamba gives an incredible summery glow that still looks appropriate year-round. The color may seem a little harsh at first look, but it easily applies to a gorgeous glow.

This, like Georgia, was a waste of money for me. This is way too sheer to be used as a blush. Could be used as a face powder I guess but I would with the glitter in it. I'm just not happy with it.

CORALista is not as pigmented or as bright I had expected, but it is a beautiful color on my NC25-35 skin. It's more of a natural color on me and sometimes I add Bella Bamba to the apples of my cheeks for a little more pop.

I was not happy with this at all. I originally thought it was a blush but it's so sheer it shows no color. Then I found out its more suited as a finishing powder and tried it as that. It's ok. There are finishing powders I like much more. This one was just a waste for me. It's somewhat chalky too.

This blush gives my cheeks a very natural flush (I'm NC25-30). It's a warm coral color that perks up my complexion and gives a nice sheen so the color is not flat. Sometimes if I feel I need more color I'll add a brighter blush as a pop on the apples of my cheeks but this is one of my favorite 'natural' looking blushes.

This product doesn't work for me. I find it appears very orange/warm on me - over Benetint, it's better, but alone I dislike how it looks. It applies well, and blends easily - it doesn't impart much colour, mainly a light flush and sheen.

I've had Georgia in my stash for several years now, and use it a couple of times a week at least, especially in the summer. It has a very slight sheen, but looks natural. I'm something of a shimmerphobe, so it's just the thing for my very pale skin. It has a lovely peach scent when applied, but the scent fades quickly. FYI, there's a lot of product in this packaging. I've barely made a dent in it.

I've owned Bella Bamba for a while and hadn't used it till recently. When I finally pulled it out of my collection I was so happy with the beautiful, 'watermelon' glow that it leave. It is extremely buildable and can be sheeted out and layered.

Perfect everyday blush for pale to fair skin. Looks very natural and glowing on skin, just not as all over face powder--too much sparkle. Color is well balanced, cool pink with a hint of peach--doesn't look like a typical blush but gives a perfect flush to cheeks. Very versatile color that's hard to overdo. Foolproof product, light rose scent, controversial value (old packaging 10g, new flip box design 7g). Packaging is sturdy cardboard and includes a brush that works surprisingly well in a pinch.

I think this is the perfect everyday blush for very fair, cool-toned skin. Most blushes are way too dark on me, but this is super pretty and never makes me look sunburned!
