Lip Lust | Rodial Collagen Boost Lip Lacquer

Has anyone else re-discovered their love of lip gloss lately? Gloss was my first beauty love, but I've strayed from it the past few years. Its resurgence has brought me back though, especially with the fact that so many of the new formulas are amazing! Gone are the days of heavy, sticky, generally icky formulas (we've all worn them...) Rodial has dipped a toe in the glossy waters with their Collagen Boost Lip Lacquer range and they are definitely worthy of some space in your makeup bag.

'A collection of high shine lip lacquers enriched with a collagen boosting complex to plump out lips, the formula also includes diamond powder which adds irresistible shine. Available in six flattering shades, these crème glosses provide a long wearing, hydrating veil of high shine without any stickiness.'

Luxe beauty can be a toss up sometimes. Is it really worth the inflated price compared to what you're getting? Sometimes not, but Rodial always seem to get it right. They've definitely won my affection (again) with the Collagen Boost Lip Lacquers. I know, $35 is a lot for a gloss, but these are worth a little splurge.

With a light feeling, easy wearing texture they hydrate lips like a balm, and give the perfect glossy finish. They have a really great scent, although I'm not 100% on what it is... It's almost fruity (apple, maybe) but not overpowering. They're completely free of any tackiness, yet still have a pretty good staying power, without so much slip that they're quick to wear away. While many shades offer a decent amount of sheer pigment, these also layer beautifully on liner or lipstick.

The range includes six shades, with all but one having a glossy creme finish (it's a shimmer!) The gloss is in a fairly standard tube, but applies with a flexible, flat doe-foot applicator. The tubes have a chic, black faux-croc look that adds a little something special. The shades are:
  • Champagne Sowers: soft golden champagne with iridescent shimmer, there isn't much base shade, but the shimmer reflects pink and gold.
  • Stripped: muted rosy-nude, this shade is also more transparent.
  • Beach, Please!: peachy-pink nude
  • Bae-Berry: cool, light berry-pink
  • Intimate: warm rosy-pink
  • Spice, Spice Baby: deeper, brown-nude

Overall, I really like these glosses. They're everything I look for in a gloss and are just so easy to wear. Oh, and the gorgeous range of neutral shades doesn't hurt. What do you think? Are a gloss fan? Tried these or want to?
