Benefit Rockateur

Sunday, 8 September 2013

This is the Benefit's newest offering to hit the makeup counters. Rockateur is a new boxed blush to accompany the other six in the range. Like all their boxed blushes, each one comes in a reinforced card board box with a magnetic flip up lid. The lid contains a small mirror and each blush comes with a mini blush brush. I'm not a huge fan of card board packaging as after a while it begins to look a bit tatty.

Rockateur is described as a "rockin rose gold" which is a pretty good description. I think this is very similar in tone to their other blush Dallas, although Dallas is a little darker and more bronze. The pan is pretty with a diamond design and embossed with the word rock. When you look closely at the pan you can see the centre of the pan has more of a matte finish to the rest of the blush. When swatched however, there is no noticeable difference in finish.

The colour pay-off is not disappointing and is the same as Benefits other boxed blushes. This gives you a nice flush of dusky pink colour to the cheek. The shimmer is not overpowering and has more of a glowy finish that glittery. I think this would look best on fair to medium skin tones. If you have darker skin this could work great as your highlight rather than a blush as it may be too chalky.

The formula is quite different to their other blushes. It is so finely milled that it almost feels like a cream rather than a powder. I really like how it feels on the skin. It applies very smoothly. Rockateur has equal staying power to their other blushes also, lasting about 5-6 hours on the skin. This blush has quite a strong scent. It hits you as soon as you open the box! I'm not too keen on the scent myself  I do think it is a little strong. A lot stronger than their other blushes.

You do get less product with Rockateur than you do with others in the range. With others you get around 7-8g however you only get 5g for the same price of £23.50. I think this is a little cheeky (no pun intended!) Benefit claim that this is down to the different formula.

Dallas is my long standing favourite of all of Benefit's blushes. However Rockateur is still a great blush for my collection. I have gravitated to more shimmery blushes this summer as I like the glow they give to my skin. If you love Benefit's other boxed blushes then I see no reason why you wouldn't love this.

Rockateur is available in stores now.
