Up until a couple of months ago, I thought Rodial was a skincare-only brand that concentrated on producing seriously effective products which looked as good as their promises, but then I got invited into Harvey Nichols where I promptly fell in love with the entire range.
Right in time for the gorgeous weather we’ve been enjoying in Scotland, Rodial very kindly sent over their stunning Blusher in South Beach, and to say I’ve been infatuated is something of an understatement! Firstly, the packaging is really something special. Rodial haven’t scrimped with a boring old compact, instead this one is a super slick mix of leather and silver, with a rather large shiny ‘R’ that just screams glamour. It feels lovely to hold, and there isn’t a chance of it getting ignored in my makeup bag. It also shuts with a rather pleasing magnetic snap, so I don’t need to worry about it popping over and crumbling everywhere.
Rodial’s Blusher comes in two colours – Copacabana, a hot orange toned coral, and mine, South Beach, a beautiful baby pink that feels absolutely perfect for spring! I’m not sure about you, but since the weather has taken a turn for the better, I’ve been reaching for some brighter colours than usual (living in Scotland means 90% of my wardrobe is black, grey and navy) and as a result, I’ve been reaching for South Beach to give my complexion a believable pop of colour.
As if the packaging and absolutely stunning colour wasn’t enough, I’m glad to say the formula is absolute perfection! It’s a very lightweight powder, and it leaves a really natural looking flush on the skin. It’s designed to leave you looking radiant, so even if you pop a little more than usual, or if you like to build colour, Rodial won’t let you down! It’s staying power is really impressive. I swirl a little on the apples of my cheeks in the mornings, and by end of day I still have a pretty amount of flush. I can guarantee that I’ll be reaching for this all the way through the summer!
Rodial South Beach Blusher is priced at £30.00 and is available here.
