When I attended the Benefit event in Leeds last month, I received one of their new Box O' Powder lip glosses.

My favourite Benefit blush is Coralista, so I was really excited to find that I was given the matching gloss to try out.

Described as a 'sheer coral', that is exactly what it is. In the tube, and when swatched on the hand, it looks a lot more pigmented than when on the lips. So don't be put off by the bright orange swatches!
I am wearing both the lipgloss and the blush in the first picture, and have swatched both on my hand so you can see how they compare.
When applied to the lips and cheeks, you can see, they are the perfect match. And as a coral lover... I'm a bit in love with this combo!

Like the blushes, all of the lip glosses from this collection smell absolutely amazing, and I know that doesn't affect how good the product is, but I must say, I would rather put something that smells yummy (I literally want to eat it!) than something which smells horrible or artificial (like a lot of lip glosses do) on my mouth.

I only use a tiny amount of product on my lips, and I'm left with a glossy, none sticky finish which is quite long lasting. They retail at only £13.50, which I think is really good value, especially for a Benefit product - remember, you pay for quality!

You can buy the Coralista gloss here.
I've got my eye on the Bella Bamba gloss next!
