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 £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?

    Have you tried Dior’s lip maximiser? Think you’d really like it as a treatment, I’ve been using it instead of the By Terry Baume de Rose recently and love it!

    I love Coralista blush but dunno if I’d go for the lip gloss. The Clarins one you mention sounds interesting though. I might have to check that out next time I’m in town.

    It looks lovely, but I think the price is a bit too much for me. Especially for the lip gloss, which I don’t wear that often…

    I do love Benefit products but at that price I feel its a bit too much, I’ll keep my eye on ebay for them I think!

    I’ve been a huge benefit fan in the past, just really because they’re packaging alsways seem to suck me in, but now I’ve got to know and have tried other brands, I really find Benefit ridiculously overpriced.

    I love these so much. I think I prefer them to the clarins actually which is a shocker!! Also, yes you do need Hoola, best bronzer out there. x

    I have had the benifit blushes on my wishlist for years, they are so expensive in Australia though! Here’s hoping benefit create a package duo with them! xoxo from Aus

    I’ve had a Benefit Lipgloss free with a magazine once before, loved the consistency and the hint of colour, not too thrilled with the scent (which is actually why I gave it away!) but I love the blush so I’d be tempted to try the matching gloss too. (ooooh Benefit.. See what you’ve done there.. Hook line and sinker!)

    I want to get both the blush and the lipgloss but I’m not sure I really need either. They both look beautiful on you!

    The blush has been on my wish list for absolutely ages, and now this gloss is on it too haha! Would you say the staying power is long? :) x

    The shade is so pretty on you! :) And you already have so many great bronzers that I don’t think you need Hoola! :)
