Benefit Cosmetics Go TropiCORAL Lip & Cheek Kit Review

During the summer on a day trip to the states, I bought Benefit Cosmetics’ go TropiCoral Lip and Cheek kit (since it’s too expensive in Canada!) I have been late on reviewing this, and also reviewing in general late, sorry!

 

This is a cute compact set that comes with a mini size Cha Cha Tint, High Beam, Coralista Blush and brush, and a Coralista Ultra Plush lip gloss. There’s also a mirror and tips/tricks attached to the sides. I was mainly interested in Cha Cha Tint.

Cha Cha tint is a mango coloured (bright orange)  tint for lips and cheeks, but I prefer using it on the cheeks. Three dots gives a natural flush to my face. On the other hand, I feel that Cha Cha tint doesn’t go on evenly on my lips, no matter how much I try to spread it. I want to refrain from using too much product, since this box set only comes with a mini size version. Additionally, it stains my fingers when I blend the product on lips/cheeks. I do like the lack of shine in this product, so I don’t end up looking like a disco ball.

 

High beam is great- no complaints there! One of my favourite highlighters. The Coralista blush isn’t as intense as I thought it would be, and it smells great. It looks more peach on my skin than coral, which is fine with me! The brush isn’t as useful, though. A tip is to put the blush after blending Cha Cha tint on the cheeks for a more intense coral glow.  The annoying part is that the blush is attached to the box, so  I can’t exactly carry this to go, unless I carry the box.

I love the Coralista Ultra Plush lip gloss! Sheer and not sticky- with a hint of colour! It’s very mini and great to throw in  my bag or purse. Even though this colour isn’t ‘in’ for the fall season, I like to use it anyway. The gloss could be put over cha cha tint for a more coral colour, but I prefer wearing the lip gloss alone.

 

Swatch of each product

Overall- I like the value of this set because I got to try different products which is better than buying each product full sized. Although this box set is meant for the summer, I can still use them for the fall as well because it gives a natural, warm complexion. Do you have any thoughts on this boxed set or any of the products inside?

    They look nice! In the UK there are loads of dupes for Benefit products. I wonder if there are any over with you in Canada too?
