Rodin Olio Lusso Luxury Mermaid Collection

Rodin Olio Lusso Mermaid Luxury Collection

Recently I had the pleasure of attending a lovely Rodin Olio Lusso event at the beautiful Veronica Beard boutique in NYC. At the event we got a sneak peek of their latest Luxury Mermaid Collection. Also, at the event, we met Donald Robertson, a very talented and hilarious guy who worked on all the beautiful illustrations on the packaging and products. He helped brought this collection to life, learn more about Mr. Robertson here.  

Rodin olio lusso:
Linda Rodin is a stylist of legend, Linda knows life on the runway and the red carpet, but her tastes are an homage to authenticity and personal style. When she couldn't find simple, satisfying skincare, she created it at home with essential oils and seeds she's gathered from market days in her beloved Italy. She was an early-bloomer in recognizing that essential oils left skin clean and dewy, and well nourished. Rodin olio lusso has grown beyond those first hand-blended potions given to models and movers.

But it remains in its simplicity. A core of 11 luxurious oils, and the faith that luminous skin, healthy hair and a bold lip are all a girl really needs.

Luxury Mermaid Collection:
Linda Rodin always believed that she'd been a mermaid in a previous life. Donald Robertson, her artist friend, and fellow-Pisces found inspiration in her fantasy and put his paintbrushes to work, and that's how this illustrious illustrator came to bring to life our Rodin olio lusso Mermaid Collection for radiant skin, glistening lips, and glowing cheeks.

I came home with a bag full of goodies! All the bags were hand painted by Donald Robertson I picked out the one with a mermaid in the blue ocean. It's such a cute little bag my daughter loves mermaids and blue is her favorite color at the moment, so she was pleased to hear that the bag was for her.

The Mermaid Collection includes:

Rodin Olio Lusso Luxury Mermaid Illuminating Powder


Mermaid Collection Luxury Illuminating Powder $50 A silky smooth gel powder illuminator and it's housed in a sturdy clear compact. The clear acrylic compact allows you to see the beautiful mermaid embossing. I had to pause for a moment when I saw the gorgeous illuminating powder I had a hard time touching it cause I didn't want to ruin such a stunning piece of art. At last, I did play with the powder I couldn't resist the urge to run my finger through the powder. 

Available in one perfect, ethereal shade- Siren, it's a swirl of champagne and icy lavender shade. On my tan complexion, it comes off a cool tone nude pink shade. The talc-free formula delivers seamless translucence and blends effortlessly into the skin. It contains exquisite micro-pigments that will capture and diffuse light. This powder is finely milled it feels very soft and smooth it's also highly pigmented it has a sheer, yet buildable texture. It has a metallic finish minus the chunky glitters you can either go for a light-hand application for a subtle glow or layer it for an high-wattage glow! This powder does not come with a brush, but you can buy the Kabuki brush from the collection. Although I don't prefer a kabuki brush when it comes to applying highlighters, I instead use a fan or small brush that way I have more control with the application.

Mermaid Collection Luxury Kabuki Brush $25 A luxurious white cashmere synthetic brush it's housed in a sleek high gloss bright white base. This brush was designed to apply the Illuminating Powder. Like I mentioned before I usually don't prefer such a big brush for highlighters, but I think this brush would be great for powder foundations. It's very soft, compact and fluffy, so it does a great job at buffing out products. I've been using this for touch ups I keep mine in a small pouch. I wish it came with a bag/pouch or a top so the bristles would stay nice and clean. 

Rodin Olio Lusso Luxury Mermaid Illuminating Liquid

Mermaid Collection Luxury Illuminating Liquid $50 The glass bottle come with a pump, and it has cute seashell underwater theme prints. This illuminating liquid is formulated with an exquisite blend of microfine, light-reflecting optics to give skin a beautiful glow. This is a liquid version of the illuminating powder. However, this is much warmer than the powder its a warm champagne gold shade. I love the weightless, blendable texture it's suitable for both face and body.  I like to mix liquid illuminators with my foundations it's my favorite way to work with liquid highlighters. The formula is much lighter than the other liquid illuminators in my collection. It's not runny, it has a fluid consistency due to the oil base, but I don't find this being an issue. It looks quite intense when swatched, but once you mix it with your foundation, the shimmer is so subtle it gives you a glowing sheen.

Mermaid Collection Luxury Lip Oil $30 A luxurious, lightweight lip oil in a universally flattering shade. The lip oil has a serum-like non-sticky consistency. It's very nourishing, and it has a high gloss finish. This lip oil can be worn on its own or over a lipstick. I like to pair this lip oil with lipliners since most of the lip liners have a matte finish so this oil keeps my lips hydrated and glossy. I think the lip oil will flatter all complexion it's a nude shade with gold shimmers and it has a hint of a warm undertone. This lip oil is formulated with vitamin E, sunflower oil, olive fruit oil, safflower seed oil and jojoba seed oil. 

Rodin Olio Lusso Luxury Mermaid Body Oil

Mermaid Collection Luxury Body Oil $90 This is probably my second favorite product from the Mermaid collection. The body oil comes in a beautiful bottle adorned with seahorse, seashells, and sea kelp prints. It's one remarkable tri-phase body oil formula gold, clear, and aqua that nourishes and moisturizes skin while leaving it silky. A blend of sunflower, sweet almond, olive and sea buckthorn oils contribute to the skin-softening, rejuvenating benefits of this formula, in addition to Omegas 3, 6, 7, and 9. Hyaluronic acid and glycerin attract hydration to moisturize skin, and a blend of two-lightweight, glide-enhancing ingredients leave skin feeling silky smooth. The sea kelp and Sambac body oil smell of intoxicating jasmine flowers. You can also mix the liquid illuminator with the body oil it looks incredible on the skin. 

Rodin Olio Lusso Luxury Mermaid Collection Swatches

All the products in this collection are very rich in pigmentation, and the consistency is silky smooth. I went a little heavy on the swatches so you can get an idea, but the illuminators can be sheer or layered to build up the coverage depending on the application.

I have very few cool tone highlighters in my collections, but I still wanted to compare the Rodin Illuminating Powder to a few highlighters from my collection. Laura Mercier Devotion looks quite similar compared to the mermaid illuminator, but it doesn't have the hint of champagne undertone like Siren.

  • Chanel Camelia de Plumes (Limited Edition)
  • Rodin oili lusso Luxury Mermaid Illumnating Powder
  • Laura mercier Face Illuminator in Indiscretion & Devotion
  • Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Soft & Gentle

I also wanted to compare the Liquid Illuminator to a few of my favorite illuminators- Marc Jacobs Dew You (review here) and Algenist Champagne Luminizing Drops. The Rodin liquid illuminator is unique regarding both the shade and texture.

Final Verdict:

This collection screams summer I love that it's a small collection seems like it was carefully curated. The beautiful underwater-themed illustrations and embossing on the products and boxes are so pretty it's making it very hard to toss out the boxes. My top picks from the collection are the Illuminating Powder, Liquid Illuminator, and the Luxury Body Oil

Rodin Mermaid Collection is exquisite, and if you can splurge on one thing from the collection, I would highly recommend it. This collection is now available at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Saks
