Rodial Just Daisy Glamstick
Rodial celebrated the launch of their new makeup range last October by revealing model, Daisy Lowe as the face of their brand. In doing so they also released a limited edition Glamstick shade called Just Daisy. Rodial Glamsticks have been around for a while; they are tinted lip butters that contain Hyaluronic Acid Apheres, Cocoa Butter and Vitamin E. This combination helps to moisturise, plump, soften and nourish your lips. As you can imagine this shade was inspired by and is said to represent Daisy Lowe so they wanted the shade to emulate her rock chic sex appeal and Hollywood glamour combined. Rodial describes the shade as a deep dark red with elements of burgundy and brown, that can be worn both day and night.
On my skin tone this shade is more of a light red/pink colour, I’m not sure this would read deep dark red on anybody’s skin tone. Shade misconceptions aside, and with my mixed review and feelings on the Rodial skincare range, I was still intrigued to try something from the colour cosmetics line.
The result is a thumbs up. I really like this - it’s a gorgeous tinted balm that glides on the lips and leaves behind a subtle soft sheen with a good amount of pigmentation and moisture. It’s a great wearable daytime colour or a nude evening shade to pair with bold smokey eyes, the balm has a very sweet smell, which dissipates after application. Being a tinted balm reapplication will be required throughout the day, especially after a meal, but I was impressed that it managed to last through my morning cup of coffee.
Rodial Just Daisy Glamstick is priced at £25.00 and is available from their website.
