After many dead end attempts at finding the a good drug store blush I decided to go into Debenhams and look around to see what the concessions had to offer. I new from the offset I needed a powder blush after finding out cream blush is definitely not the one for skin which is prone to getting oily throughout the day. I tried on plenty of blush from a number of concessions, Urban Decay, Bare Minerals and YSL… Final stop, the old faithful Benefit.
After explaining what I was after the assistant recommended Sugarbomb, after having this applied I was ready to give up on all hope of finding a blusher to fall in love with.
Enter my final shot (I don’t think my checks were appreciating all the applying, removal, applying, removal, applying, removal). ROCKATEUR.
At first I was dubious, the packaging didn’t impress me too much, the brush looked cheap and useless and it appeared very shimmered. But as soon as she passed me the mirror I knew I had found it. The pigment is perfect, the shimmer is just enough (not too dull but definitely doesn’t make you look like you have a face full of glitter). Even throughout the day the shimmer doesn’t budge so unlike a lot of shimmer based products you don’t come home to find you’re entire face is a glitter ball.
I have also found this product really good for conturing when just using a highlighter. So just applying it in the hollows of my cheeks and then using Rimmel wake me up concealer as a highlighter. It is a super affordable everyday look that looks stunning.
The only negative of this product is the brush provided is useless, in fact I binned it soon after bringing it home. But the product itself is just perfect, the colour is a best described as a bronzed coral.
If anyone would be interested in a make up tutorial for this look please do let me know. In the meantime, for me and Rockateur, we don’t go anywhere without each other!
