New: Benefit Rockateur

Benefit has a new blush box on the scene…and when Benefit launches a new blush box you can pretty much guarantee it’s going to be something special. This one is a shimmer and rose gold sort of shade to it – with the rose element really dialled up. It delivers a really gorgeous glow…

On the skin it looks a slightly more of a warm terracotta type of shade with a blusher-ish warm tone to it. Very hard to describe, but it does look different on the skin to how it looks in the pan.

In the pan it has both a shimmer element and a matte area – so the overall ‘glow factor’ on the skin is a real combination of matte and shimmer to deliver the perfect balance of the two so skin looks really healthy and natural.

Also, slightly odd thing to mention – but it smells really good too!? I know…odd to smell your blusher, but hey, I noticed it smells good…so thought I’d mention it.

Also, packaging wise – this has the flip lid rather than removing totally as some of the older styles did. It has a good size mirror too. Also, the brush seems to have had a bit of a make-over on the previous models. Usually they’re quite square and not very easy to use. But this one has curved edges and is actually quite soft – and I’ve actually been using this to apply. Something pretty rare with brushes that come with product.

A gorgeous shade – good work Benebabes!

Launches 22nd August on Benefit.co.uk

    What a gorgeous color! I love that it has just enough shimmer to be glowy, but not so much that it comes off sparkly.

    The only downer… it comes with less than HALF the normal amount of product for blush. Odd. Skipping this one :/
