A few weeks ago I received a package from the PR team of Rodial Beauty. It’s their NEW product launch for Spring/Summer 2018.
Among the product that I’m most thrilled about is the Icons Collection Palette. If you didn’t already know, Rodial Beauty is a professional beauty and the founder is none than London based Maria Hatzistefanis, an international journalist turns beauty entrepreneur. She founded Rodial in 1999 after seeing a gap in the market for high performance skincare offering targeted, results-driven treatments.
My current go to makeup essentials this spring. Rodial ICONS Collection Limited Edition Face Palette houses 8 universal shades to see your makeup process from start to finish. Set, contour, bake, blush & highlight, eyebrow powder & eyeshadow in just one palette.
During our last spring break in March, I went for a short trip with my family to a nearby city. Rewind from after coming back from the trip, it seems like I’ve packed way too many makeup stuff than I should for our three days trip. How I wish this palette arrives earlier!
But nevertheless, I’m grateful for this palette. I already make a date to bring this with me for my next vacation. I like the idea of an all in one face palette that’s so convenient and travel friendly.
- Contour Light: This buildable contour powder allows for controlled definition from a natural enhancement to a stronger contoured finish
- Contour Medium NEW: Helping to create shadow where needed for a contoured look
- Bronzer: Add natural sun-kissed colour to the complexion with this perfect blend of pigments
- Blusher – Soho: Beautiful soft peach colour powder with a smooth, creamy feel for a velvety finish
- Highlighter Gold 07: With a warmer, golden tone this highlighter adds instant luminosity to the skin
- Highlighter 06: With a metallic ice shade this adds instant luminosity to the skin
- Banana: This mattifying powder can both set your makeup and contour your face by the ‘baking’ make-up trend
- Translucent HD: Helps to blur imperfections, refines the skin’s texture and absorbs shine for a long-lasting matte finish
Here’s a closed up of the color swatches and formula. The texture is smooth with good pigmentation.
I’m really excited for this palette and I know you’re going to love this collection. So, what are you waiting for, go grab one now while stock lasts!
With such an amazing travel friendly palette, you surely need some good brushes to pair with it. It’s my first time owing an expensive brush and I’m thrilled with the prospects of putting these to good use.
The Baking brush is super soft and densely packed which makes application an ease. I’ve tried it once and love it so much. I can’t stop with my new obsession of baking method on my face. Love it!
Another awesome stuff to be added to my collection!
I was lucky enough not only to receive one but also the Smokey Eye Brush from Rodial. Eye makeup is my favorite thing to doll up and I’m loving this brush already. The densely packed bristle and the softness of this brush is amazing. It works so well for blending and smudging. A perfect tool to create a smoke eye looks!
I’m a huge love of skin tint so I can tell you that I’m going to be using this a lot. Let’s talk Rodial Skin Tint SPF 20, I got mime in the shade Hamptons. This shade is suitable for those with light to medium complexion and it matched me perfectly. A medium coverage tinted moisturizer with amino peptides to brighten and enhance skin tone.
I noticed this stuff is super lightweight and is undetectable on the skin once blended in. It’s not full coverage but you can built it up to medium coverage. Another benefit is that it has SPF 20 and it’s also available in five other shades suitable for all skin types.
But what I love about this skin tint is the texture. It’s not thick nor too runny. I appreciate a good consistency for easy blend-ability. The formula is really lightweight and does a great job on staying in place all day. I’m excited to have this in my life! If you love skin tint like me, then you need this in your life!
Moving on is the Rodial XXL Lip Liner in the shade Behind the Scenes. I love neutral nude lips, so I immediately loved this lip liner in a Rosewood Pin. It’s the darkest out of the three available shades in this collection.
What an amazing color payoff and staying power! The waterproof formula works well to keep your lip liner stay put all day and without feathering. I love that it’s not drying and matte with the ability to be built up. I really appreciate that it’s an everyday shade for all skin types. A formula which feels comfortable on the lips is a must haves in my opinion.
I adore this color and really like the way the formula feels on my lips. This is really a great product that you can wear this on its own or with your favorite lipstick.
I love this shade and I say it over and over again. It’s matte, it’s gorgeous and it’s so me. I just know that I’ll be reaching for this shade a lot this Spring for sure!
There is no denying that I’m a lover of sheet masks. And when I first heard of the Dragon’s Blood collection by Rodial I’ve been wanting to get my hands on them. I was pleasantly surprised when I received these in my mailbox. There are eight sachets of Rodial Dragon’s Blood Lip Masks Trio in a box. A big shout out to the PR agent who sent me this!
“But before you start worrying about the dragons harmed in making this product, know that dragon’s blood comes from a plant and is known to be protective for skin cells. It’s the red sap from the Croton Lechleri tree.”
Lately, I’ve been adding these to my morning skincare routine and I really enjoy it. I’m super excited to pick up some of their masks collection in the near future.
Okay, this is not insta-friendly but I did it anyway for you guys. I didn’t expect for Kylie Jenner lip pout like results but this stuff certainly make my lips feel so much smoother and soft than any lip balm I’ve tried before. It feels tingly, cool and a little numb at first, but only for a few minutes. The result is amazing and I really like how my lips look hydrated and plumper. Tried it and loved it! Forget lip injections. Just try this!!!
The title of this book is self-explanatory. Lastly, is the latest book launched by Maria Hatzistefanis. It’s her first ever book where she talks about her challenges and encounters.
I’ve just started reading a few chapters and I’ve learned so many insightful tips and secrets of her business success. It’s a good book to read and I find it very inspiring! I’ll definitely be popping this baby in my handbag so that I can finish reading it on my free time.
The book will be available on the US stores from 26th July onward. I’ll treasure my copy for many years to come. Don’t forget to pick up a copy if you want to read more about her journey to success!

Think like there is no box.”
