I am a huge fan of lip products (did you see my last haul?!) and am always playing with different types, colours, finishes and brands. One thing I can never get enough of however are lip balms, and particularly tinted lip balms – I mean they just make good sense! The lovelies at Rodial kindly sent me one of their tinted lip butters -“Glamsticks”– to try, and I have to say, it’s a bit of a game changer!
Rodial Glamsticks are described as being a tinted lip butter with hyaluronic acid spheres… designed to provide immediate moisturisation and a long term plumping effect. I would absolutely agree with this statement! My lips feel so soft when I’ve been using my Glamstick, and it’s such a comfortable product to have on the lips – it contains Cocoa Butter and Vitamin E which make it really creamy, light and smooth to wear.
There are several colours in the range and the one I have is Revenge. It’s a really pretty bright but wearable fuchsia pink colour and I was pleasantly surprised at the colour pay off on my lips. Often I find tinted balms and butters look beautiful in the bullet but the colour doesn’t actually transfer onto the lips, rather giving a very sheer glossy wash at most. Revenge however leaves a beautiful solid colour which is also very buildable. It stays on the lips really well; despite being so moisturising, it doesn’t slide off easily. It also doesn’t bleed like some tinted balms I’ve used. Perfect! I absolutely adore the scent of my Glamstick too – a delicious and subtle coconut fragrance, which reminds me of being on holiday (always a good thing!). It’s SPF 15 too so I can actually wear it on holiday as well! I often find SPF lip products have a horrible taste and sit thickly on the lips, but this is definitely not the case with the Glamstick. I think this will definitely be my most worn lip product over the summer as I freckle quite easily and always want to avoid lip freckles. This way I can have pretty candy coloured lips at the same time as protecting them! Win, win!
I also LOVE the packaging of the Glamstick – look how pretty it is! The clear plastic casing looks so cool, and really chic with the silver lining of the tube and sleek Rodial font.
*Thank you so much Rodial for sending me their Revenge Glamstick to try out. All thoughts are honest and my own, for more information please see my Disclaimer Page.
