That Perfect Rosy Complexion

22 September 2014

Bonjour mes beaux lecteurs!

Here is a lovely little combo I have been absolutely loving during the last month. I thought this was a seasonal inspiration, as I know how everyone loves pink cheeks to compliment their dark lipstick during the Autumn months. I can't wait to share with you a little review of these skin dazzling beauties I bought mid-August.

Benefit Rockateur Blush (£24.50) - I know I'm really late on the whole Rockateur hype, but believe me when I say that I've been wanting this product forever! Despite the major dislikes of the packaging, I don't really have a problem with it. It sticks to the cute bene-famous packaging and what more could you want? Who cares about the packagaing though when you look at the product yourself. Rockateur is embossed with a cubic pattern, complete with the word 'Rock' engraved in the centre - hence the name. This powder blush appears to be shimmer based but nonetheless, it produces the most gorgeous pink flush to the cheeks - perfect for autumnal months (especially when that summer glow has started to wear off). Unbelievable product, well worth the steep price mark.

Soap and Glory Glow All Out Highlight (£11) - Glow all out is a luminizing radiance face powder, fit for dusting over parts of the face/body you wish to highlight; the back of the product suggests to apply it to your face, neck and shoulders. Personally, as the highlight is very peach toned, I tend to apply it on my cheekbones - fairly heavily if my skin is looking rather dull that morning. On a night out, I would also apply some, very lightly, down the centre of my face, focusing specifically on my nose, cupid's bow and forehead. This helps to provide you with natural glowing skin as well as faking that super tired and dehydrated, dull complexion.

To finalize, these products look insane when applied together on the cheeks. I apply Rockateur to the apples of my cheeks and Glow All Out to my cheek bones on a day-to-day basis. These really help me to achieve a gorgeous finish on my skin and I woud love it if any of you could help me and comment any cheaper alternatives for both. I will be forever repurchasing these, however I think they are going to last me a hell of a long time!

Love you all :)
