I’ve been wanting to try RODIN for a really long time but wasn’t sure what to take the plunge on. But when I popped by my favourite boutique in Toronto, Jacob and Sebastian, and saw that they stocked the new limited edition RODIN x Vanessa Traina line I thought, there’s no better time than now.
Vanessa Traina, Executive Creative Director of Assembled Brands and The Line (and daughter of my mom’s all-time-favourite author Danielle Steele), collaborated for the first time ever with RODIN olio lusso to create a line of luxury lipsticks and lip and cheek oils.
RODIN is already pretty well known for their lipsticks, but after swatching a few of the shades in both formulas I decided on the Lip and Cheek Oil in the shade Narcissus – a beautiful, sheer berry. I really liked the idea of a two-in-one product (more bang for your buck imo).
The oil provides a soft tint of colour combined with a luxurious combination of natural oils including safflower seed, sunflower seed oils and conditioners like turmeric extract and ceramides.
The nourishing oil is meant to simulate the look of crushed-petal stains of colour, which is really a perfect way to describe it. You can wear it on your cheeks, dabbing it in, or swipe it across your lips (my preferred method).
I know it’s only the start of 2019, but I may have found the gloss of the year. A+ RODIN – if you’ve tried any good products from the brand, let me know what to pick up next!
