THE FACE OIL THAT FUELLED THE PHENOMENON

Story sub-heading

Who doesn’t love a beauty fable? A tale of skingenuity; a happy accident in a lab that results in a miracle potion or a simple, lightning-bulb moment captured in a jar. For cult face oil Olio Lusso, the script goes a little something like this...

A former model, fashion stylist, and quintessential New Yorker, Linda Rodin couldn’t find products that truly satisfied her skin so she began experimenting with essential oils. As her glow became her calling card, word soon whipped around the fashion industry and Linda found herself with a very willing sample set of guinea pigs among her celebrity, model, and makeup-artist friends. Success quietly snowballs.

Italian for ‘luxury oil’, today Olio Lusso is widely considered the product that fuelled the enduring face oil trend, now a skin care category in its own right. Based on the beauty benefits of 11 carefully-edited essential oils including anti-aging Argan, Evening Primrose, and Rosehip, Rodin’s signature blend sinks into skin without leaving an oil slick to deal with, delivers on the glow factor as a good oil should, and coaxes the complexion into a calm, controlled state (that’s the Jasmine, Neroli and Arnica Montana flower extract, BTW). Add a few drops into your

Nine years on, Linda still watches over every batch, and the photogenic golden elixir continues to light up the white space of beauty pages and the blogosphere. Olio Lusso remains the heroine of the tightly edited Rodin collection; the good oil now the baseline that runs through all Rodin products. And it’s (finally!) landed here in Australia. THE END. [Or rather, THE BEGINNING].

Every once in a while, a product lands in your life that’s everything you never knew you wanted. The Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Collection is that product.

When it first landed, four days is all it took for the Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Collection to be snapped up on mecca.com.au. So, what is it about this edit of 18 eyeshadows encased in a cute-as-kitsch tin that has makeup lovers around the world swept up in peach pandemonium?

Let’s start with its versatility; a selection of buttery-soft, super blendable mattes and shimmers that transform your eyelids from day to night in a flash, no matter what your skin tone. There’s not one shade in it you won’t use (trust us), plus it smells like a big ‘ol bowl of peaches on a warm Summer’s evening. Bliss.

What began as merely a limited-edition, one-off palette by Too Faced founder Jerrod Blandino, quickly ripened into a seriously big phenomenon. Really, how many palettes do you know with a cult social following (#sweetpeachpalette has racked up over 30,000 mentions on Insta), its own Emoji app and an International Day to celebrate its existence? FYI: just like a NYE fireworks chain reaction, Australia kicked off the worldwide party as the first country to celebrate International Sweet Peach Day on 7 January 2017.

In fact, it’s been so popular that Too Faced have made the palette a permanent in the range and have added three more products to the new Peach collection: Papa Don't Peach (the perfect flush of blush), Sweet Peach Glow Highlighting Palette (a highlighter, bronzer and blush in one) and eight juicy Sweet Peach Creamy Oil Lip Glosses to complete the look. That right there? That’s the power of the peach.

Editor’s note: The Too Faced Sweet Peach Collection is coming soon and will be available online and in-store on 31 January 2017.
