Today I am reviewing a lovely set of lip colours from Rodial. Normally I favour lip glosses as I find lipsticks can feel too drying but after my recent success with the fabulous Lip Shimmers from Burts Bees I thought I’d try and branch out a little more into lip colours.
Browsing the Rodial website I came across this set of Glamsticks priced at £25. With the individual RRP of each Glamstick being £25 I thought the set was too much of a bargain to pass up!
The set features 3 super-bright colours – Revenge is a deep shocking pink; Psycho is a very wearable orange / coral shade; and Bang is a pale pink.
Rodial’s Glamsticks contain Vitamin E and Cocoa Butter to hydrate, nourish and protect. Add to the mix Hyaluronic Acid Spheres, which create a plumper looking pout, and you have probably the perfect formula for soft, cared-for lips. The formula is so hydrating and buttery, yet the colour payoff is fantastic. The Glamstick is also infused with a light coconut flavour for beautifully scented lips. As a fan of coconut I love it!
The only disappointment is the fact that the Glamsticks in the set are pictured on the website as having clear acrylic lids, which makes them look very striking and every bit worthy of the £25 they cost individually, but when the set arrived they had much cheaper looking white lids. They are also a little smaller than the individual Glamsticks at 3g each as opposed to 4g (this isn’t detailed on their website) making the saving slightly less than expected.
Putting those slight negatives aside though, and Glamsticks are probably one of the loveliest lip colours I have ever tried, with an extremely comfortable formula that doesn’t compromise on pigmentation. I will definitely be keeping my eyes peeled for other shades!
You can buy Glamsticks on the Rodial website either in this set or seperately. They are also available through Space NK and QVC.
