Benefit Rockateur Blush* | £23.50
This is by no means a new product, but you know me i am always pretty much always last to get on the bandwagon! But here i am better late than never… The Benefit Rockateur Blush has been gracing my cheeks for the past couple of months knocking anything i ever used before it right into touch.As always i will start with packaging, it comes in Benefits signature packaging for boxed powders, yes made from cardboard the packaging is not the most slim line, it includes a mirror and a brush (the brush you get included just does not work for me, it is a little too small & stiff) but to be fair all in all the packaging it is pretty handy and hard wearing, I’m not a huge fan of the snake print, lace, chains and stud design but looking past the packaging inside it holds a beautiful shimmery, rose gold piece of blush goodness! This rose gold powder adds a natural, flushed pinched winter cheeks look. The shimmer is only very subtle once applied most of the shimmer disappears leaving you with just a hint of shimmer (so all you ladies who are scared of too much shimmer, don’t be put off) It can be sheer or built up to your desired look, i like to use a fluffy brush to apply just a couple of swirls will do the trick. One of the only things I’m not all that keen on is the scent that comes with this blush, its a little too strong and perfumed for me, but as I’ve said many of times on here smells are not for me.
This is such a beautiful blush and I actually can’t believe it took me so long to try this it out. As you can see from the picture above it gives such a lovely natural hint of rose to the cheeks, I think its great blush to compliment people with fair skin and it does an amazing job at instantly perking up dull looking skin! The only downsides i have found for me, are the scent (but you might love it, head over to a Benefit counter and give it a sniff if your unsure) and the price at £23.50 it is a slightly more pricey blush, but definitely worth the money for the gorgeous colour, that being said when mine sadly runs out/if i ever do lose it (i am a bugger for losing makeup) i will be running out to repurchase!
