Such Suave Suede by Rodial

How many matte lipstick do you own? If you’re anything like me then it’s probably more than the number of fingers on both hands. Why would I possibly need anymore?!, I say to myself as I um and ah over which lipstick to wear for the day, like I’m picking a chocolate from an extensive chocolate box menu. Nevertheless when my favourite skincare and makeup brand Rodial said they were launching three new matte lipstick pencils, I simply had to try them.

Aptly named suede lips, there are three colours to choose from; Rodeo Drive – a vibrant orange red, Melrose Avenue – classic nude, and Big Apple – burgundy berry.

I decided to go for Big Apple (even though I would happily have them all!), as it is the perfect shade for Autumn.


When I first went into the store to have a look at these, I was told I would be hard pressed to find a softer, non-drying matte lipstick then these. That I would want to keep applying and re-applying it is that soft, but there would be no need, as the colour was so long lasting.

This is when I embarrassingly scoffed and probably rolled my eyes. How foolish did I feel!!

The second I applied the Big Apple, I was in love. It really is suede soft, the colour and coverage amazing and a true matte lip pencil, no semi-matte here! I wish I could truly get across the velvet feel of suede lips and I didn’t suffer from a hint of dry or flaky lips. The pencil is also easy to use and all it needs is a quick sharpen (lucky, as I wear this pretty much daily, it’s disappearing fast) and you’re good to go!

All the colours are really versatile as well, perfect for any occasion and a variety of complexions. What’s even more exciting is there’s a fourth colour due for release very soon, and I for one will be first in line.

Addicted? me?!, Never!!!!

Go suede,
