Benefit Rockateur Box o' Powder


I love this blush, I really do... So let's start off with the one thing I don't like about it - the packaging. I just think that the lace, crocodile skin and chains came all together kind of (seriously) tacky. Come on Benefit, you could've done way better than that! Packaging aside, it's been receiving lots of love for the treasure, that is the actual blush, that can be found inside the not so pretty box.

It's described as a 'provocative rose gold cheek powder' that I think suits most skin tones, particularly lighter ones. It looks quite peachy to me with a slight rose gold shimmer, giving a really pretty and healthy satin sheen to the cheeks. It's the blush I've been using for the majority of the time since I purchased it almost two months ago in Hong Kong, which I'm sure you can already tell because of the 'rock' written on the blush starting to wear off. Another thing I love about the product aside from its color is how soft and finely milled the powder is. It's definitely a lot more fine and smooth than the other Benefit Box o' Powders, to the point that if I pressed my finger on it hard enough it would sink in. 

Just like any other Box o' Powder, it contains a small mirror in the packaging and a brush. I prefer using my Real Techniques Blush Brush over the one that comes along with it, but I have found a good use for it. It's wide, thin in length and angled which I find is the perfect brush to use for highlighting the top of my cheeks.

What do you think of Rockateur?

  6. Very pretty! It reminds me a lot of NARS Luster just from the swatch. I love Benefit blushes but I don't think this one is unique enough for me to fork out for it - they are very pricey.
