Benefit Rockateur Blush Review

Benefit Rockateur Blush
Benefit Rockateur, Famously Provocative Cheek Powder
Rockateur is Benefit's latest blush, and according to them; "This rockin’ rose gold cheek powder gives a famously provocative flush that turns heads on-stage and off". Ooh you saucy Benefit minxes. Fittingly, this blush is packed to the brim with shimmer.

A close up of Rockateur
As you can see from the close-up, Rockateur has a lot of tiny glitter flecks. I noticed that these disappeared after a few uses, so what you're left with is a gorgeous, shimmery rose shade.

When it's applied to my skin, it gives me a shimmery pink flush. This blush also doubles as a really pretty highlighter, if applied to tanned or darker skin with a light touch. Here are some swatches!

I decided to take Rockateur out for a whirl, and here's how it looks on my face. I teamed it with some gray smokey eyes, I just love the combination of gray and pink :) It leaves a very subtle glow in pictures, but seemed to look a lot stronger IRL. According to Benefit, this blush contains less product than their other ones because, due to the mix of ingredients, it provides 1.6x better color payoff. So you may want to use a lighter hand with this one.
