You know me – little miss late on the bandwagon, but as they say better late then never right? This time around I have the lovely people at Cohorted (your new favorite site for lower-prices beauty gems) to thank for finally introducing me to this heavenly Benefit Rockateur* blush. It has been gracing my cheeks for the past couple of months but it has already earned a Holy Grail status. Despite the not-so-pretty packaging this little stunner is any rose gold lover’s dream. Allow me to explain…
All fellow fair-skinned gals out there will be more that pleased to hear that your newest blush best friend comes in the form of Rockatuer. The luxurious brownish rose gold peach shade compliments both pale and deeper skin tones beautifully and adds a hint of gentle sun kissed glow to the skin. This complexion-warming gem adds the perfect natural glow and instantly perks up the dull skin, which makes it a staple in my winter makeup bag. Rockateur has stunning sheeny finish thanks to the super fine shimmer running through the blush. I love how it highlights the cheeks and don’t worry – it’s really subtle and not glitter-laden at all. This beauty doesn’t seep into pores and doesn’t accentuate imperfections either – score.
I favor semi-pigmented blushes and Rockateur definitely delivers on those counts. With it you don’t risk end up looking as if you’re headed to a fancy dress party and I love that you can slowly build it up to the look you’re going for. This gem is really finely milled and has super soft, almost creamy, texture that blends beautifully and makes the complexion look seriously dreamy. As with any other Benefit blush I own, Rockateur has brilliant longevity and hangs around for the whole day with minor fading around the nine-hour mark. Impressive, er? Pop this baby to you Christmas wishlist ladies, you won’t regret it!
