I’ve had a busy March with a few photoshoots and trials for upcoming weddings so I haven’t had a lot of time to blog recently. I always feel bad about this because not only do I LOVE blogging and miss it but also because I don’t get to put my photography skills to the test and as you know,I love me some beautiful flat-lays!
Today was a good day as I made a conscious effort to set aside time to snap some product photos and it felt so good. These photos are the result of a productive and creative day.
I’ve raved about Rodial’s skin and makeup products before and I’ve finally had the chance to discover their collagen boost lip lacquer. Rodail describes them as “crème glosses that have been expertly formulated to support collagen production, encouraging a boost of volume for visually plumper looking lips.”
I have become quite obsessed with them and now use them often. With Spring finally here in Ottawa, they are the perfect way to welcome a healthy amount of colour back onto the lips! From my experiences, I would describe the créme glosses as non sticky, nourishing and hydrating to the lips. They give off just enough colour and super high gloss shine! In my opinion it’s the perfect gloss+lip colour balance for days I don’t want to wear lipstick to work but still want a polished look.
I don’t really see the plumping effect while wearing them , but regardless they are super wearable, comfortable and versatile so you can layer them together. Intimate and Stripped will be my go-to this Spring for sure.
Rodial sent over their top 4 shades :
Intimate is a warm rosy pink shade
Stripped is a muted rose nude shade
Spice Spice Baby is a deep brown nude shade
Champagne Showers is an iridescent champagne shimmer shade
Rodial Soft Focus Glow Powder
Soft Focus Glow Powder is a universally flattering, verstaile “highlighter” that can be used to add glow to your face or can be worn alone on bare skin for a polished look. The powder applies easily as it is a velvety finish and won’t seep into your fine lines.
I use the powder as a highlighter, as under-brow and cupids bow illuminator and it looks gorgeous. I haven’t had the opportunity yet to wear it on a bare face but I think this technique will come in handy in the Summer when I want to rock a “makeup free” look.
Soft Focus Glow Drops
Radial describes this product as a ” skincare/makeup hybrid, a next generation wonder serum formulated with active ingredients to brighten the complexion and add gentle shimmer to instantly boost luminosity and glow.”
Yes, I agree with Rodial 100%. I wore this under very heavy makeup a few nights back and I could still see the effects of the glow drops through the foundation. My foundation applied beautifully over the glow drops and since it’s a hybrid of a primer and serum , I definitely can see myself incorporating this into my routine long term.
My skin felt smooth and very dewy after each use. Soft Focus Glow Drops also contain antioxidant properties which are uber important for the health of your skin and support the fight against premature aging. Primer + Serum + Antioxidant booster = My top rated product!
Have you used any of these products? If so, please leave me a comment ! I would love to hear about your experiences.
