Glam Eyes with #Rodial Eyeshadow, Glamolash Mascara & Precision Liner

I am pretty excited to be trying out British cosmetics line Rodial for the first time. I have heard many great things about them, especially their skincare. Dragons blood, bee venom, and snake oil? That will get your attention for sure. In addition to their celebrity-loved skincare products, the line includes a tightly edited range of luxury contour make-up products that sculpt and define the face for a flawless finish. The hunt to find the best of the best volumizing mascara, workhorse neutrals palette, and cat eye worthy liquid liner never ends for me. Lets see what Rodial beauty has to offer!

Glamolash Mascara XXL Black ($28)
Achieve supercharged volume to the eyelashes with this intense black colour concentration. With a long-wear formula this ensures eyelashes are maximized from day to night. Contains beeswax for lash conditioning, carnauba wax for even adherence to prevent clumping and soluable collagen to provide full body to lashes with added shine.

Lately I have been underwhelmed by many of the mascara's that claim they are volumizing. They're full of big names and promises but fall short. Glamolash XXL sounded like another unfulfilled promise, but I can happily say it is not. The brush is thick, dense, and it coats your lashes in one coat. The effect is full, voluminous lashes. I really really like this mascara. It doesn't clump or get thick even with two coats. There is no issue with it transferring or fading throughout the day. My sensitive eyes can wear this with out any issue. It's a fabulous mascara that actually does what it says, plumps up your lashes with some really nice volume.

Rodial Glamolash XXL is on the pricier side, but not that much more than my two other fav mascaras. PUR Full Volume & Too Faced Better Than Sex. If I had to choose a trio of best volumizing mascara's this one would fit right in between the two. It has been the one I have been pulling out every day for the last month.

Precision Liquid Eyeliner Pen ($28)
Create the perfect feline flick with Rodial's first ever liquid liner. This long-wearing intense black liquid liner has excellent color pay off and a silky finish glide to smoothly and effortlessly create your perfect winged look. With a felt tip pen-style applicator, this makes it easy for you to create thick or thin liner to suit your style.

When I first used this liner I wasn't sure I was going to like it. The pen tip is very stiff with out any movement. Turns out though I love it! I can create extreme thick cat eyes with this liner because the brush gives you so much control. The liner dispenses out evenly for perfect lines every time. It is also insanely long lasting and won't budge all day long. If you want a liquid liner with more control to do some serious wings this is a good one.

Smokey Eye Sculpt Eyeshadow Palette ($40)
The ultimate capsule collection of complementary nude shades for the eyes. In a classic Rodial mini-palette, this contains a range of six neutral, high pigment shadows to define the lids and line the eyes for the woman on-the-go. With a selection of matte and pearl shades, you can create a range of looks, from the everyday neutral sculpted eye to a more dramatic smokey eye for the evening. The silky soft texture is easily blendable whilst providing long-lasting wear to take you from day to night.

Nothing gets me more excited than a great neutral palette these days. I really liked Rodial's take! It reminded me a lot of the Naked Basics palette's in both size and shades. The matte shadows in this went on smooth and buttery while the pearl shades were illuminating. This isn't the most pigmented palette. I didn't mind that as sometimes a neutral "nude" eye look is what I'm going for. I always thought of skincare when the name Rodial popped up, but now they will be a name I look to for makeup as well.

#Rodial is available at Rodial UK and SpaceNK in the U.S.
