Benefit 'Rockateur' Blusher

The newest little box of blush from Benefit is gorgeous!

I have developed a real addiction for these lately, and this did not disappoint.

At first glance it looks like a shimmery solid pink, but it really has so much more to offer. The shimmer is just an over spray for decorative purposes, it's not embedded all the way through.
The texture of this is a first in comparison to all the other Benefit blushers, it's almost spongy, it's not a gel or a solid powder its in between.

The shade I would describe as a beautiful rose gold, personally I think it would suit any skin tone, on even the fairest complexion you'd achieve a natural pinky glow to the cheeks, and on medium/dark skin tones you'd get a beautiful golden glow, with a real sheen of pink. It is a very buildable colour so you can vary it depending on the desired result.

If you've never owned one of these Benefit blushers you wont know this but you get a cute little brush in the box, and there's a mirror in the lid. I love a well packaged product, and the little lace details and the hints of pink on the box make it to pretty to hide away, this one needs to be on show on your dresser.

My only niggle is the fact that Benefit charge the same price for this one as they do for all their other blushers, yet the Rockateur is 5 grams of product, in comparison to the standard 8 grams on all the others! 
Available now at Benefit counters nationwide, and on the Benefit Website priced at £23.50, these blushers last months though so they are worth the money.

What do you think of Rockateur? Will you be buying it?
