The Newest Benefit Boxed Powder- Rockateur Review

So we've all heard about the Benefit boxed powders... I've always really loved (most of) them, so when I heard about the newest one in the line, Rockateur, I could not wait to get my hands on it!

To me, most of these are great. There is only one that I really dislike... Hoola. I know, I know. Lots of people out there absolutely love it, but it's probably my least favorite bronzer ever. That's a whoooole other story.
But back to the positives, most of the shades are really wearable and flattering. I think overall, the formulas are great too. If I had to choose an all-time favorite, it would have to be Dallas...
Surprisingly followed by this new one.
Yes, it's fabulous.
Don't miss my full review (and some possible downfalls) at the bottom of the post.

This is how Benefit describes it...
Our famously provocative cheek powder in rockin' rose gold gives a show-stopping "rush of heat." For an encore, the sexy sculpted design is accented in gold.

It comes with the little brush as they always do, but I find this one is actually pretty good! Over the years, they've changed them from the oldest "squared-off" and very stiff brushes that I absolutely hate, to these soft and rounded ones that I actually can use with the product and really like! 

 Here's what it looks like on.  Very natural! It's a pretty rosy flush.

So I've already told you guys I love it, but here are all my thoughts...
So basically, I think the product is totally deceiving in the packaging. All the golden, frosty shimmer is downright scary where blush is concerned. Especially since this product is marketed as a blush and not really as a highlighter. Most people aren't into heavily frosted blush. I think some people may decide to pass on this product at first glance because of that. 
However, if you actually TRY it on your skin (not just swatching it on your fingers), you'll find the finish is actually really natural and flattering.  I find that most of the time, blush that has a bit of a sheen to it (not heavy or anything) actually reads more natural on your skin. Rather than a totally matte formula which can sometimes look fake and chalky. 
The color is pretty perfect too. A really pretty and warm rosy shade that I think would work on most skin tones.  It also smells fabulous.
So long story short, I basically love it.

Rockateur will retail for $28 and will be available in September 2013.

What do you guys think? Will you be checking it out?? What is YOUR favorite Benefit boxed powder?
