Benefit Rockateur Box o’ Powder ($28.00 for 0.17 oz.) is described as a “rose gold.” Rose gold is a fairly apt way to describe it; it’s a mix of pink, beige, and brown with slight warm undertones and a satiny shimmer. It is darker than rose gold to me; and of course, the low shimmer makes it less shiny and metallic. There is a very sparkly overlay that can be brushed away after one use (or, if you prefer, brushed away before using). MAC Taste Your Senses is a cream product, less shimmery. Edward Bess Secret Affair is lighter, pinker. Tom Ford Love Lust is more shimmery, pinker. Urban Decay Naked Flushed is more matte, pinker. MAC Stereo Rose is slightly lighter, more shimmery. MAC Light Year is lighter, more shimmery. See comparison swatches.

The texture is softer than any Box o’ Powder I’ve tried, and frankly, the texture feels quite different than the other shades, too. It is sumptuously soft and velvety, and it almost feels like an incredibly finely-milled baked product.  It has a baked feel, but it’s more finely-milled and smoother than traditional baked products. It’s rather like Laura Mercier’s Illuminators and Estee Lauder’s Gelees.  The color payoff was true-to-pan and buildable, so it could be applied at full intensity or applied with a lighter hand for something softer.  It has a very subtle satin finish that becomes more and more glow-inducing as it gets blended and buffed into the skin.  When I wore it, Rockateur lasted well for eight hours and started looking faded after nine hours of wear.  I didn’t notice it emphasizing pores or skin imperfections.

Just a heads up: this contains significantly less product than other Box o’ Powders (which are 0.25 or 0.28 oz. usually) at 0.17 oz., though the price is the same.
