I recently attended a blogger event held by Benefit Cosmetics in Cardiff Tiger Tiger to launch their newest blusher, Rockateur. It involved all things every blogger loves; instagram-able mini food, swanky looking cocktails and savvy make-up tips. Obviously making for a room of happy bloggers!
Benefit are one of my favourite brands so I was intrigued to try it but admittedly a little skeptical as I’m not a big fan of blusher (I’d much rather a subtle bronzer to contour my cheeks and leave it at that). Luckily for me, the blush is a warm golden colour with subtle shimmer – perfect for day to night wear. As the colour matched my satisfaction and didn’t leave me looking like a clown, it was down to the formulation to decide whether or not the product had my seal of approval. Unfortunately it wasn’t the most pigmented product I’ve tried, however it was build-able and looked a lot better over the top of a primer and foundation – It takes more than a swatch on the back of the hand to see the full capability.
I don’t have a lot more to say about the product as I haven’t used it yet, however, it impressed me enough that I intend on making a trip to the Benefit counter later this week…
Benefit Rockateur Blush – £23.50
I’m not that pleased with the quality of these pictures but I really wanted to do this post. Take a delve into what I’m currently wearing and carrying around with me.
My foundation and face powder has been this MAC pair for a really long time (MAC studio sculpt Foundation | MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural) but along with those I’m using this Benefit boi-ing Concealer (full review here) and love it. Although, only the concealer and Benefit Brow Zings are in my current make-up routine, it’s quickly becoming a go-to brand for me. I’ve been keeping my eyes pretty simple with this bargain MUA Trio Eyeshadow, it’s cheap and handy to carry around on an every day basis (A lot easier than carrying a palette around) and creating the perfect batwing with Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner. My favourite eye product (possibly of all time?!) is this YSL Shocking Mascara, creates huge volume. As far as lip products go, I can’t get enough of dark berry lips and my favourite two are definitely MAC Rebel and Revlon balm stain in Crush (full review here).
A few other products that I didn’t mention above but are pictured:
Maybelline Rose blush | Real Techniques blush brush | Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick
