Win It! Rodial Glamstick SPF 15 Tinted Lip Butter (Blow)

|    press sample    |

Happy Monday Lippy Lovers! Say Aloha to a brand that you may have heard from a friend or read from another blog. 

Rodial is a popular anti-aging skincare company with attention-grabbing brand names. Ready to feed your skin with Dragon's blood serum or Glamoxy snake mask? I think I will pass, haha! But see I vaguely knew Rodial has makeups so when Planet Beauty (a California-based upscale retailer with 30+ branches across CA) reached out to me, my no-brainer choice was of course *drum roll*... lipstick!

Rodial Glamstick SPF 15 ($27.95, 4g/ 0.1 oz) is a tinted lip butter that comes in nine shades. I chose Blow, (pink-lilac) because it's the closest to radiant orchid, 2014 Pantone color!

What the website says: "Rodial’s Glamstick is a nourishing tinted lip butter enriched with Vitamin E and Cocoa Butter to hydrate and protect. Glamsticks contain hyaluronic filling spheres to inject volume, plump lips and smooth lines for a flawless look. Infused with a light coconut flavour for beautifully scented lips with an irresistible sheen".

Let's start with the packaging. It is a twist-up type housed in acrylic tube with see-thru top. I like that it has SPF 15. In case you don't know yet, our lips need sun protection too.






The skinny. If you like coconut-scented products then right off the bat, you will enjoy Glamstick. It's tropical and fresh! But I've only tried Blow so I don't know if it's the same with the other shades (cross fingers it is!). This lip butter is very moisturizing and as you can see from the swatch, it is pigmented. It renders a demi-shine finish without the tacky feel. Sans eating, the wear time is four hours at the most. When I read that it's supposed to inject volume and plump lips, I thought "shoot, is it going to sting big time?". Thankfully, I had none of that crazy sensation. But did it miraculously convert my lips to Angelina Jolie magnitude? you guys, they're the same size before and after! Plump is nothing but optical illusion. Trust me, shine makes lips stand out. But other than that, I truly enjoyed this lip butter!
