Benefit Rockateur Blush: Review and Swatches

Benefit Rockateur Blush

"This rockin' rose gold cheek powder gives a famously provocative flush that turns heads on-stage and off"

just in time for the fall season, Benefit Cosmetics has added a new blush to their roster of Box o' Powders! and boy is it a stunner!!! i've always been a fan of Benefit's blushes....CORALista and Bella Bamba are among my favorite blushes, so i was excited to see the gorgeousness that is contained in this box.

Benefit Rockateur Blush

i know there's been a lot of talk about this blush containing less product than the other Box o' Powders even though we're paying the same price. well, apparently Benefit has heard the questions/complaints and has posted this statement under the product information:

"Rockateur has a specialized formula that works by combining the best feature of baked, powder, cream and fluid textures to give a brighter, purer color pay off creating 1.6 times the amount of pure color payoff. This results in the usage rate of Rockateur to be an exact match to our other Box o' Powders."
i'm not sure if i buy that explanation, but i'm gonna be honest, the difference in the amount of product doesn't bother me. mainly because it's been a while since i used up a blush in it's entirety anyway, so it's just not that big of a deal to me. but, i can see how some may feel like their getting robbed of some product.


the shimmer that is on the perimeter of the blush is an overspray that quickly disappears after the first use. the formula of this blush is much different than the other blushes that Benefit offers. it's incredibly soft and feels much more like a baked blush. the feel of it is reminiscent of Estee Lauder's Gelees or MAC's Extra Dimension Skinfinishes. Rockateur is a fantastic combination of great texture and great pigmentation that blends effortlessly on the cheeks leaving the skin with a healthy glow without emphasizing pores. i've found myself reaching for this blush a lot lately. it makes such a great everyday blush because it compliments almost any eye look.

if you're a lover of all things rose gold, if you're a fan/collector of Benefit Box o' Powders or if you're simply looking for a blush that will give you a healthy, natural looking glow, Rockateur will be a great addition to your stash.

Rockateur retails for $28 and is available at Benefit, Ulta and Sephora.

Benefit Fine-One-One Blush & Highlighter For A Quick Pick-Me-Up

Benefit Fine One One

"This sheer brightening cheek and lip color gives your look instant LIFT, SHAPE and POP."

i'm gonna be real...what initially piqued my curiosity about the product was the name and the packaging. when i swatched it on my hand in the store i wasn't immediately blown away. to be honest, the shades used in this blush/highlighter aren't anything that i don't already have in my collection, but the way that this was packaged as an all-in-one, multi-use product for cheeks and lips sold me. i thought it would be great for those days when i didn't feel like doing my full face.

Benefit Fake Up Hydrating Crease Control Concealer: Review & Swatches

Benefit Fake Up Concealer
"This crease-control hydrating concealer --- with Vitamin E & apple seed extract --- hides dark circles and diffuses fine lines for a silky smooth, ultra-natural look. Fakeup never settles...and neither should you"
i own far more concealers for my own personal use than should be allowed. needless to say, i've had these in my possession for a few months now, but didn't have an opportunity to use them until now.
