Rodin Luxury Lip Wardrobe Lipsticks review & swatches

product review

From the luxury brand that brought us their infamous Jasmine and Neroli Facial Oil, which became a beauty cult product. Rodin Olio Lusso has now branched out their range of skincare to bold lipsticks. The lipsticks are an extensive of their skincare range, and they feature the same plant based ingredients. The luxury lip wardrobe lipsticks are the same high end, luxuriant quality that has come to epitomise the Rodin brand as a whole.

Lip Wardrobe Lipsticks review

Long before I had even tried these lipsticks on, the clear cases were a game changer for me. The translucent lipstick cases are so elegant, and make the lipsticks stand out.  Taking stunning images of these lipsticks was not difficult.

And not just a pretty face the luxury lipsticks are great as an all-rounder because there is an ample range of colours to suit not only avid lipstick fans, but the lipstick prudes too. They have a matte-creamy finish which is ultra-nourishing. Featuring Vitamin A and E, Argan Oil, and their infamous Jasmine and Neroli Oil; all these ingredients provide moisture. They are by far the least drying lipstick I have ever worn. The texture of the lipsticks is smooth, and they feel very comfortable on the lips.

All of the shades in the range are perfect for spring. A tasteful mix of nudes and bold colours makes for a really classy range. The lipstick colours appear on your lips just as bold as they look in their cases – the pigmentation is wonderful. So wonderful, in fact that the swatches I did would not wash off my arm! This does prove, however, that they are long lasting.

I must say after using these, they have fast become my favourite lipstick. I suffer with dry lips, and having a prolonged winter has not helped one bit. To be able to wear a highly pigmented lipstick that also nourishes lips is a dream for me. Mac used to be my go-to for lipsticks, but I’m so cheating on Mac with Rodin Olio Lusso.

The Rodin Olio Lusso Luxury Lip Wardrobe Lipsticks are £28 each, available from Liberty London and Space NK.

Mary Kay’s believe + wonder collection + gel semi-shine lipsticks review 

product review

On Wednesdays we wear pink 💅🏻

I’m so excited about Mary Kay’s new collection, the believe and wonder collection is based around inspiring positivity. What could be better than sweet pink products and positivity!? 

They are a new collection of bath and body items, each collection contains a shower gel, body lotion and fragrance mist. I’ve got the paint the sky collection, they smell insanely sweet (which I love, all my go to fragrances are sickly sweet). There are notes of vanilla, velvet musk and pink grapefruit which provides a refreshing sweet smell perfect for summer. Because, in England we can’t guarantee the weather – but at least we can smell summery! 

Instantaneously I have been reviewing their new lipstick range, gel semi-shine lipsticks. I have been using a nude and red shade (perfect for me because I’m way too into my comfort zone to branch out to any other colours). Also perfect for me because my lips get insanely dry using matte lipsticks, it literally drives me insane on a daily basis. Most of the time my exterior looks normal, in my mind my lips feel like an actual sand pit. It’s hard being me. 

Gel has long been discovered for nails – but not so much for lips. So when I discovered these gel lipsticks I could not wait to try them out. 

Swatches of ‘Naturally Buff’ & ‘Red Smoulder’


These lipsticks are legit my new go to. Whilst they maintain colour throughout the day – they are moisturising without being overly glossy. You don’t want to look like a 90’s rendition of Lil Kim after all… 

These amazing lipsticks are available in 12 shades! Get yours now. 💋💅🏻💋💅🏻
