Long time Rodial admirer right here. The super stylish & sleek faux-leather packaging and the celebrity cult-following put this brand on my radar months ago. So given the opportunity to try out some of their best-sellers, I jumped for it!
Brands like Rodial are bridging the gap between professional cosmeceuticals and the mass market by offering a carefully curated range of high performance skincare and cosmetics. Hailed from the U.K. this brand is as innovative as it is luxurious.
Blush + South Beach = 2 of my favorite things, so it’s no surprise that I love this product! What’s unique about this is that it has the ability to help contain & absorb excess oil while still keeping the color locked in place. I have never heard of any other blush that does that, and I have oily-prone skin so I am all about it. With a finely milled powder in a velvety soft texture, you only need to dip your brush into this once for adequate color payoff. It can be built up easily and the shade South Beach is the prettiest pop of color for Spring!
Craving a natural tan just in time for Summer? This Instaglam Compact Deluxe Bronzing Powder will give you the perfect natural “sun-kissed” glow without looking heavy or superficial. I’m probably the pickiest when it comes to bronzers & contour out of all my makeup. Partially because I’m not a makeup expert just a makeup lover and have found that its a step in the daily routine that can make or break a completed look. More often than I’d like to admit, I’ve managed to mess up my entire makeup by either over-applying a bronzer or applying a shade thats too orange, too muddy, etc. This is one of my top favorites, the color is just right! I love the finish, I love the color and I love how soft & natural it looks.
I really appreciate lipsticks in pencil form. They’re so quick and easy to apply and are ideal for makeup on-the-go. These contain vitamin E and are really creamy and apply so evenly and feel really comfortable. They’re not as long lasting as a matte liquid lipstick, but won’t disappear within an hour of wear. I love the shade Melrose Ave, a “your lips but better” neutral shade has always been my go-to and this one fits the bill and looks beautiful.
Mascara is something I don’t go a day without, and I rarely ever wear false lashes so a good mascara is a must. I always look for one that adds both volume + length which their Glamolash Mascara XXL definitely does. It contains beeswax to condition lashes and saluable collagen for added thickness. It’s the kind of mascara that will make you look like you’re wearing false lashes yet doesn’t looking clumpy, smear or flake off.
If you’re looking for a blinding highlight – here it is! Even if you wear highlighter every single day and this is the only one you have, this would still last you FOR-EV-ER. Although this Instaglam Compact Deluxe Highlighting Powder is really pricey ($57) it’s packed with pigment and really is the only highlight you’d ever need because it can be applied very lightly for a natural glow or built up (just a little bit more) for the prettiest most blinding strobing effect. I’ve never seen this type of payoff from a highlight without having to dig my brush in multiple times and apply several layers.
