Benefit are renowned for their boxed powders; every makeup collection that I seem to watch has at least two of the cute little boxes! I originally bought my first Benefit powder many moons ago from Cohorted; prior to their big upgrade. I picked the shade 'Rockateur' as the first for me to try, and hopefully the first of many to come. Rockateur seems to be one of the more popular shades; I think that it is also Benefit's most recent addition to the line.
The packaging is stunningly beautiful golden snakeskin with pink and black lace detailing over the top. I think that the more aesthetically pleasing a package is to the eye, then the more likely I am to use the product. The box is made of very thick and sturdy cardboard and opens on a hinge.While mine still looks pretty new and clean, I have no doubt that the cardboard may eventually end up creasing from general wear and tear.
There is a smallish square mirror in the interior lid which is good for quick application on the go. Included is the softest brush that I have ever known to come with a product. The oft white hairs are slightly tapered to more control and precision over the application.
The blush itself is a very pretty shimmery rose gold colour. The powder is embossed with the word 'Rock' and a pretty little geometric pattern. While the blush is plenty pigmented, I find that by using a light hand that I create a perfect subtle flush on the apples of my cheeks.
Which Benefit boxed powder should be the next for me to try?
