Benefit Rockateur ($36 CAN) is the latest blush offering from Benefit. I am a huge fan of Benefit’s boxed powders (as they like to call their blushes) – they smell yummy , feel effortless and most of the times are super flattering on most skin tones. I have become somewhat of a collector and though in my many instances I thought oh, there is no way in this world that this colour would suit me and I thought the same for Rockateur; it seemed too light to suit me. Once I put it on, however, I couldn’t stop wearing it every day. It is just that easy rosy, golden sheen and feels so natural with my medium dark skin tone, that it is akin to my cheeks but better. Rockateur wears well, lasting steadily through the day – I’d say it gives me 6-8 hours of wear and does not enhance skin imperfections like pores. Overall, I’d recommend it if you are looking for a naturally luminous blush – it will not disappoint!
It is in no way the most unique blush you would have seen, but it is certainly one of the most usable ones. Though it can be overlooked as not very wearable for darker skin tones, in my experience, the opposite is quite true.
