When I was at the Rodial event at Harvey Nichols a couple of weeks ago, I got to see Rodial’s skin tint in action, and I have to say, I was impressed! I’ve had a couple of tubes of the Skin Tint + in my ‘to try’ pile for a couple of months (oops!) but seeing them in action made me want to give them a run myself, and I have to say, I’ve been seriously impressed!
I was kindly sent two of the five available shades (mine are Capri and The Hamptons) but the shades cater to even the deepest of skin tones. i was actually quite surprised at the amount of coverage the tints give – I was sure that they would be super sheer, but actually they do give skin a flawless base which eradicates redness and disguises any sort of tiredness or breakouts, they’re also pretty matte. One of the tips I picked up at the masterclass, was to add a drop of oil to the Skin Tint + prior to application to add a bit of luminosity and glow to the finish. It’s a hint that’s worked an absolute treat – I’ve been loving the results which perfect my skin.
Rodial Skin Tint + is priced at £45.00 and is available here.
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.
So Rodial might be a brand which is well known for beauty products with rather catchy names which deliver results. So, when I found out that they had a makeup range, I got rather excited! What I didn’t realise is, that, for the past year or so, Harvey Nichols in London have been selling the range, and it’s been rather successful. Thankfully, for those of us living a little further north, Harvey Nichols Edinburgh have a brand new counter devoted to the brand’s makeup, so when I was kindly invited to get my makeup done I absolutely jumped at the chance!
The makeup collection is a wonderfully curated set of must-haves which include a super light Instaglam Skin Tint which is basically an Instagram filter in a tube and an Airbrush Concealer which makes any imperfections completely disappear without looking or feeling heavy. I opted for an easy to recreate natural look, and I just love how subtle the products were, and I completely fell in love with the Glamstick Lipstick in Bite. It’s the perfect nude colour, and it feels incredible on the lips!
As if getting my makeup done wasn’t amazing enough, I was very kindly gifted a goodie bag filled with some of the brand’s incredible skincare. I love how generously sized they are – I’ve been getting over a week’s worth of use out of them, and I’m absolutely head over heels for them!
Getting to try out products like the Pink Diamond Instant Lifting Serum is such a thrill. The full size bottle is a rather splurge-worthy £250.00, so getting to use the serum at home is a lovely luxury! The Bee Venom Cleansing Balm and Super Serum are a gorgeous little duo too! They smell incredible, and are such a lovely way to feel awake in the mornings!
Thank you so much to Rodial and Harvey Nichols Edinburgh for having me!
