Review | Benefit Rockateur

So this is what happens when I go to Westfield looking for a new jacket: I see too many, I can’t decide which to get, so I end up at the Benefit counter buying their latest blusher instead.  I do not know why, I do not know how, but that is how it was.  I have had my eye on Rockateur since it came out, and a while ago I hit pan with my beloved Sugarbomb so this was always going to happen sooner or later!  At £23.50, Rockateur is the same price as the other Benefit blushes, although when I got this one home I did notice that it has slightly less in it than the others – very sneaky!  Let’s just hope it lasts as long..
My first impressions of it are good; it is a soft peachy coral colour, with a soft sheen that looks really flattering and radiant on the cheeks.  When you first open it up, there is quite a heavy amount of shimmer on it, but I noticed that after one use, this had mostly gone so it seems to be just a top layer intended to make it look nice!  It does look cute, the box has a lace type pattern on it which I like, and there is a little mirror inside too which can come in handy.  The word ‘rock’ is stamped across the product, which is a nice little touch!  It also comes with a little blusher brush like the other Benefit blushes, which I have to say I used to enjoy using before I got my Real Techniques blush brush. 
The colour is not a strong one; having owned both Sugarbomb and Coralista by Benefit, I would say that Rockateur is the most subtle and gives a softer finish.  I personally really like it, and I think it gives a nice healthy and natural glow to my cheeks without being too OTT. 
Have you tried Rockateur?  What do you think of it? xx
