There has always been somewhat of a pull around the Benefit box blushes in the beauty world hasn’t there? Even my non-cosmetics crazy Sister has a bit of a thing with them and I remember watching countless ‘Benefit Blush Collections’ videos back in the day. Over the past few years Benefit have released new shades, repackaged them to tart them up a little and have just recently released corresponding lipglosses to their six best-selling blushes. Interesting move Benefit…
Coralista is my favourite Benefit box blush, although I need to get round to purchasing Hoola – it’s been on my list for ages, do I need it? So it was a lucky coincidence that I got to try out the Benefit Ultra Plush Gloss also in Coralista*. In terms of colour it’s a pretty good match with the Coralista blush – a pinky coral, although I’d say the gloss is a little darker. There isn’t too much pigment in the gloss though and it gave a very sheer wash of colour over my albeit rather naturally red lips. The formula does get a thumbs up from me – silky on the lips, not too sticky and adds a touch of moisture – glosses are really upping their game recently! If you like a colour-packed, long-lasting gloss then this probably isn’t going to be for you, but if you want a perfectly matched lip to accompany your fave Benefit blush and don’t mind a bit of reapplying then say hello to your new number one gloss.
The Benefit Ultra Plush Glosses are available now at counters in six shades – Coralista, Bella Bamba, Dallas, Dandelion, Hoola and Sugarbomb for Â£13.50 each. I have to say that for that price I’d be tempted to pick up the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector, which is just my all-round favourite gloss (full review here). But as with anything in the beauty world the Benefit Ultra Plush Glosses aren’t a need they’re want and I can see Benefit fans queing up to get the gloss that matches their favourite blush. Will that be you?
