Benefit Rockateur Blush

As I've probably mentioned before, Benefit is a brand that doesn't usually interest me that much, but all I've been hearing about the last few months is how amazing the boxed blushes are and in particular the Rockateur blush, so I popped it on my Christmas Wishlist and luckily I got it!

In terms of packaging - I just don't love it. Usually, Benefit packaging is so cute and girly and something that looks perfect sitting on your dressing table, but the combination of the snakeskin and pink lace together just look so incredibly tacky to me. As it's one of their 'boxed blushes', it comes in the standard hinged cardboard box which also contains a little mirror and brush, but to be honest, I never use either.

"Pick up the beat with a rush of heat! This rockin’ rose gold cheek powder gives a famously provocative flush that turns heads on-stage and off. The crowd will go wild for its sexy faceted design, accented in luxe gold. For an encore, the custom angled, dimensional brush gives rich, show-stopping payoff every time"

The product itself looks incredibly shimmery and at first I was a little worried it might make me look like a human glitter ball, but once applied I don't find it looks overly shimmery at all. It just gives you the most perfect subtle glow, which is just what I go for when looking for the perfect blush.

Overall, I'm completely obsessed with the Rockaeur blush. It's quickly made it's way into my everyday makeup routine and as soon as it runs out I will repurchase! Which means alot coming from me because I'm never usually bothered by blushers. If you're looking for a subtle peachy/pink blush then I would definitely recommend giving this a go!

  4. It's beautiful on the pan but I'm afraid it would look too much shimmery for my taste. I like the fact it is subtle :) xx

  5. Great review, I love this blusher I just don’t tend to use it enough. I love the shade of this though, and have to agree it gives a gorgeous subtle glow. I’m not a big fan of the packaging design either :(
