When it comes to summer beauty, I’m not sure there is anything quite like a glowing tan coupled with a bright lip and not much else. It feels chic and effortless, and when you’re dealing with hot weather and humidity, you don’t want to be worried about your makeup smearing. Right in time for jetting off, Rodin have released the stunning Goddess Aurora Collection which positively screams summer glamour.
The lipstick is a new version of one of the brand’s classic shades – named after founder Linda Rodin’s rather fabulous poodle Winks, this isn’t a shade to wear if you want to blend in with the crowd. I love Rodin’s lipstick packaging – not only is the acetate case achingly chic, but it lets you see exactly which shade you’re reaching for.
As if the packaging wasn’t gorgeous enough, once the lid comes off, you can see how stunning this lipstick really is. Almost neon in the tube, it positively begs to be tried on. Since I’m not exactly tan at the moment (a girl can dream), I tend to pat a little of the formula on, almost like a stain. The result is a gorgeous almost water-colour effect which is easily built up.
Once I’m on holiday though – all bets are off, and I’m applying this lipstick straight from the tube for an opaque hit of true Barbie pink. Wink’s blue undertones also make it perfect for ensuring a pearly white smile. The formula is gorgeously silky with a satin finish, so it looks ultra chic on, and it lasts well into the evening too. It’s the perfect way to feel seasonal without feel like your trying too hard – and I want to wear it pretty much constantly.
Goddess Aurora Luxury Lipstick in Winks is priced at £28 and is available from Liberty Beauty here
