I was looking for a rose gold blush to add to my extensive blush collection. I had toyed with the idea of purchasing one from the NARS sexual appeal collection but I was eventually won over Rockateur.
I applied with a wide brush and brushed it onto the apple of my cheeks. Straight away it provided me with a shimmering healthy glow. The product is buildable and like a lot of the other Benefit powders applies like a dream and it is very hard to over do it.
The shade is gorgeous a light pink with subtle hints of rose gold shimmer.
The only negative I am going to give this product is that there is less in it than the other Benefit powders.
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.
