Makeup Monday: Smokey Eye Glam ft. Rodial *

My experience with Rodial has always been with their skincare, and so far it's been a fantastic one. It was only until the end of last year, was I introduced to their sculpting and banana powder that quickly made it to my monthly favorites. Last month, I was given the opportunity to try a few more products from their company to which I immediately said yes. 

The products that were sent to me include (I have all of these products swatched below):
1. Eyeshadow Palette ~ very buttery and pigmented in its finish - you can see below in the look I created that the color payoff is there, I didn't even have to use a colored base to make the dark shades to pop (which I typically have to do with most shadows).

2. Liquid Liner ~ its matte, its black and has a felt pen tip. I love this product however, make sure you let this product thoroughly dry before you use your setting spray only because I have found that it will transfer if you don't. With my two other liquid liners I often use, I dont typically have to wait for it to dry first - so just make sure you let it dry and then you're okay to go. 

3. Suede Lips - Big Apple ~ When I wore this lipstick, I got plenty of compliments. It's a beautiful darker nude tone with a brown rosey pink tone. It's once agian, very pigmented it glides on effortlessly to the lips WITHOUT any tugging at all. I want more of these! 

4. Instaglam Glow ~ This is a twist up liquid highlighter with a brush tip. If you are a lover of highlighters you need this, definitely. When you first dispense this product, there is a good amount of playing time, but once it sets, that's it - IT. IS. SET. I can aggressively run my finger over it, and yet it will not budge. It's beautiful - you can juts see it below. 


I applied shade 1 all over the lid, then took shade 4 with a big fluffy crease brush all over the lid. I applied shade 5 with a more defined crease brush and applied it with more focus on the outer V. Afterwards, I pat shade 6 all over the lid and blended it together again with shade 5 to erase the harsh lines. 

For the bottom last line, I took shade 5 on the outer lash line and then shade 4 to diffuse it a bit.

I contoured with the Instaglam Compact Deluxe Contouring Powder  and set my concealer with the Instaglam Compact Deluxe Banana Powder

The black matte shadow is so pigmented that I didn't even need to apply any eyeliner in the look. I did apply the Suede Lips in Big Apple. The shadows were honestly so velvety and easy to blend that it made my smokey look creation effortless and not intimidating. I rarely do a smokey eye, actually I dont think I've done a black smokey eye before for the blog? but this actually made me want to try it out and I am IN LOVEEEEEEEEEE with the final result. 

I highly suggest that you try out the cosmetics from Rodial, whether or not you're already a fan of their skincare - the powder products I've tried are some of the most finely milled and pigmented buttery soft ones - can't wait to get my hand son more!

Until next time, XO - M
