If you’re like me then the the term “rose gold” sets your heart a flutter. Benefit Cosmetics’s new boxed cheek powder, Rockateur ($36), is a stunning rose shade with gold overspray accents. Given the reference to rose gold in the promotional material I was expecting a rose with gold shimmer but the blush, once overspray is removed, it is a beautiful warm rose shade with a slightly more cool toned glowing mauve rose sheen.
Rockateur gives a lovely flush of colour that creates an effect very similar to my natural blush. The blush is not shimmery but rather glows with a sheen that gives the skin a nice luminosity without accentuating any flaws. I find this to be an excellent choice as a natural, go with anything blush shade that you can reach for without thinking. It does have a rather strong scent that I can’t place but I don’t notice it once applied.
Benefit Rockateur ($36 CAD) will be available this September at Sephora and directly from the Benefit Cosmetics website. Also available in Canada at select Shoppers Drug Mart locations. In the US they can also be found at Bloomingdales, Macy’s, and Ulta.
