Rockateur


I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with Benefit. Despite having entirely re-launched their colour collection this year, I have to admit that none of their new product releases have caught my eye since the launch of They’re Real (over two years ago now… time flies!) When I caught a glimpse of their latest launch however, I knew it was a must-try.
It’s the latest in their line of boxed powders and it’s called ‘Rockateur’. I’m personally not a huge fan of the snake print and lace packaging, but look past that into the shimmery golden-rose goodness that is inside…
Simply one of the most stunning coloured blushes, and one of the coolest designs I’ve seen in a while. 

The golden shimmer, while beautiful, is only a spray-over (thank goodness!) so it disappears after one use, leaving you with a beautiful flattering rose shade with only a hint of a shimmer. (The below picture is after one use)
The packaging, as usual with benefit, is cardboard, so not the most hardwearing or slimline but functional with the mirror that they added to the design a few years back. As with all of the benefit boxed powders, Rockateur has great staying power on the cheeks. I found I only needed one top up throughout the day. Like their other powders, it is also quite heavily scented. Something that I personally like but I know this puts some people off.
All in all, I was really impressed with this and can see it becoming a staple blush in my collection along with my beloved NARS Sin and Orgasm.
The only downside is the price. This puppy will set you back a whole £23.50. However, if you’re a lover of high end makeup (and especially beautiful blushes!) this blush is perfect for everyday use and I know I’ll certainly get my money’s worth.

  3. This looks like a really subtle and pretty shade. I always find that their blushers/bronzers often come out a little bit too faint though so I have to apply quite a few layers. And I normally use my own brush rather than the flat one they provide.

  4. It looks great but not worth the price - I have a lot of blushes this kind of colour and I think I'd only be paying for the Benefit name here!

  10. I think this blush looks great with a tan on, it looks so natural yet gives a niced 'flushed' look. This may have to be the first high end I purchase...!

  11. The package is so cute! But I usually avoid cardboard packages, I don't like them, most of all if a product can be carried in the bag.

  23. I have been the same with Benefit, not much of theirs recently has really caught my eye. I love most their blushes though so I'll have to try this out. I find they are often long wearing too so I can (almost) justify the price!

  24. It looks really nice on you and I can see myself wanting this new blusher as I have a similar complexion like you. But as you pointed out I do not like the benefit packaging and for the price I expect a little more.

  89. It's always been a hit and miss with for me when it comes to Benefit's boxed blushes. Too much shimmer. So I'm glad this one seems less shimmery, because it looks really pretty.

Today has being the most happiest day of my life after 1 year of sadness and sorrow without being with the one i love, i tried all my possible best to make sure i make my lover happy but it never seems to work out well it was like am doing everything in vain but all thanks to Lord Alika for coming to change all my worries and sadness to Joy. i knew the great man when i read some wonderful reviews about Lord Alika how he has helped a lots of people on there relationship problem i was reading a magazine which then i saw great testimonies as well which then i decided not to waste time.he told me not to worry that he assures me that within 48 hours everything would be sorted out i believed Lord Alika so much because i believe he can't fail me and i sent him all my details. Truly Lord Alika never failed me,my husband who left me for good a year come back to me. My husband and i have been living contentedly since this spell caster reunited us together with his love spells.
