Benefit Cosmetics just expanded its' Box o' Powder line with this new Rockateur Cheek Powder. Well, they are calling it "Famously Provocative Cheek Powder" and I sort of like that name, don't you?
Rockateur is a silky powder blush that is like a blush/highlighter in one product. It is a pretty brown based pink shade with a very satiny, subtly gold finish. It is like rose gold! On first swipe, I could barely tell where it was applied, but with a few strokes of the brush, the pigment really came through.
The formula is unique. It is actually a combination of powder, baked, cream and fluid textures that makes it have such a strong color payoff. It feels and applies like a baked powder. I think that may be why I like it as a highlighter so much. While I am wary of many highlighters because of their ability to highlight lines and pores, Rockateur does not. It highlights in a way that it softens. It really is beautiful.
I have to mention that this is one product in which I really like the brush too. The stocky brush is full of natural feeling hairs that make it easy to sweep the powder onto the apples of cheeks and then blend up the cheekbone.
Benefit Rockateur Box o' Powder is available now at Benefit Cosmetics and Sephora for $28.00.
