Benefit Cosmetics Week: Rockateur Box O' Powder Blush
You've tried blushes, of course, but have you tried a fabulously scented one that seems to perfume your whole face? That's what makes the Benefit Rockateur Box O' Powder Blush (P1,600) stand out. After you squee over the cute embossed design on the powder, you won't miss its bright floral scent as you blend it over your cheeks. It's surprisingly pleasant! I like that it doesn't smell chemical at all.
And the color? It's a beautiful pink rose with a generous amount of bronze in it. Rockateur is not a bronzer - it's predominantly pink - but it has enough to warm your face up in a snap.
I love that it's not overly pigmented so you get a couple of chances to layer this the way you want it. It delivers a pretty, glowy color on the cheeks, but it's not in any way oily-looking. The golden shimmer is very fine anyway so they hardly show up.
Staying power is okay at 4-5 hours before it starts to fade. I remember Hervana staying on longer than this one even though it was less pigmented. Nonetheless, like I said before a 5-hour cap on blushes is fine by me as I'm not often out all day.
Anyway, here's a look wearing a couple of layers of Rockateur! As you can see, it shows up as a delicate shade of rose. ^_^ Pretty no? I think this blush is one of those colors that are universally flattering. It blends easily on top of skin so it's a flush that looks natural!
As with all Box O' Powders, Rockataeur comes with a mini-brush in a clear plastic tray sitting on top of the powder. It's handy if you need to retouch quickly, but I prefer to use a full-sized blush brush to get the best color pay-off and finish.
Overall, I'm really glad to add the Rockateur Box O' Powder Blush to my collection. It's a gorgeous color with a finish to beat, and it smells fantastic! It's fast becoming one of my fave blushes to use since it's also quite versatile; it goes with a lot of lipsticks and eyeshadow combinations.
I wish it stays on longer but it's easy enough to retouch if I really need to. :) What do you think? Have you tried out a rose gold blush before?
