Benefit Bockateur Box Blush*
Available September 2013
Benefit's box blushes are probably their most iconic product, with gorgeous shades, girly packaging and long lasting products what is there not to love?
Their latest in the collection is the Rockateur blush - a rose gold cheek powder for a light 'sexy flush'. Some Benefit stores and counters had flash sales of Rockateur 6 weeks early and I was lucky enough to get my hands on it early through twitter.
The packaging is quite typical of Benefit (though there is less product in the pan!), with a handy mirror and a brush that might be useful for on the go. I'm not hugely keen on the 'Rock' word across the product but I suppose it's all part of the marketing, and that will disappear as the blush gets used up. Apart from that the first thing that I noticed was the scent of the product, I can't put my finger on it but it's a citrusy-sweet scent which smells great on my cheeks.
It's definitely a soft blush which makes it wearable for both day and night. I can sometimes find blush too harsh on my pink toned skin but Rockateur is much more complimentary, acting almost like a bronze blush. Benefit have managed to get the right amount of shimmer leaving a subtle sheen rather than a disco ball look. Definitely a healthy glow rather than painted on cheeks.
A blush to suit all skin tones and one that's managed to convert me from bronzer to blusher!
Did you get your hands on Rockateur during the flash sales?
What do you think about Benefit downsizing the products but not the prices?!
