As previously noted, I have been madly in love Linda Rodin's entire Olio Lusso line since I began using it years ago, and Rodin Olio Lusso Luxury Face Oil steadfastly remains one of my all-time favorite luxury face oils. 
I was thrilled to have met Linda at an event, and it was there that she told me that she was launching a collection of lipsticks, and I have to confess that I have been more excited about this release than any other this season. 
According to Linda Rodin,

I feel a bit naked without lipstick. My mother never left the house without it. She’d be putting on lipstick in her nightgown and coat driving us to school at eight in the morning! She made me aware of the beauty of lipstick at a young age. I personally curated every aspect of this collection from the lipsticks’ brilliant, richly pigmented colors, to their creamy soft matte texture, to the chicly modern, clear square case. Naturally, they are infused with my luxury oils, the cornerstone of RODIN.
According to Rodin Olio Lusso,

As Linda Rodin sees it, glowing skin and the right lipstick negate the need for other types of makeup. Linda's so simple, yet so luxe, her morning routine goes like this: First she spreads a few drops of RODIN olio lusso Face Oil on her still damp face. Next Linda applies one of her five pigment-rich lipsticks, depending on her mood and sometimes her outfit, then she’s out the door.
RODIN Olio Lusso Luxury Lipstick in So Mod is a stunning pink nude that is Linda Rodin's chic nod to the iconic mod 1960s of Twiggy and Brigitte Bardot. 

This gorgeous lipstick, which is infused with Olio Lusso, boasts an ultra creamy texture, stunning pigmentation, and a dries down to a soft matte finish with dimension. Rodin Olio Lusso Luxury Lipsticks glide across the lips effortlessly, deposit color evenly, melt into your lips perfectly, and they neither bleed, nor do they settle into lip lines. RODIN Olio Lusso Luxury Lipsticks are long-wearing, very comfortable on the lips, have the perfect amount of cushion, and aren't in the least bit drying. In fact, the blend of 11 oils, that are used in Olio Lusso, provide luscious hydration and nourishment. There is no discernible taste or fragrance, and therefore this lipstick formula should pose no problem for those among you with a sensitivity or aversion to fragrant lipsticks.
The chic clear packaging echoes Linda's love of vintage Lucite.
RODIN Olio Lusso Luxury Lipstick in So Mod
Available in 5 stunning shades:
So Mod: Pink Nude 
Winks: Hot Pink
Tough Tomato: Orange Red
Billie on the Bike: Violet Berry   
Red Hedy: Hollywood Red  
So Mod: "Linda's nod to her Twiggy moments in the Mod 1960w and her simultaneous infatuation with Brigitte Bardot. So Mod is a nude yet rosy pink that evokes another look with the same impact as the other shades but in a very different way: Linda knows the power of a change up and So MOD was invented for those moments."

Winks: "A shockingly hot pink named after Winky, Linda's constant companion– her adorable and charming silver grey poodle. Optically exciting, winks2 is a showstopper and a very alive and striking shade.”

Tough Tomato: "A fabulous bright orange red makes most skin tones come to life. Tough Tomato emanated confidence and glamour and is one of Linda's favorite go-to colors."

Billie On The Bike: "Inspired by Linda's mother Beatrice, aka "billie2," this violet berry is the shade she wore to ride her bicycle, work in the garden or do just about everything! She was forever glamorous!" This universal shade can be worn in one layer for a sheer stain of color or multi-layered for a darker, more statement mouth."

Red Hedy: This is a classic Hollywood red named in honor of Hedy Lamar, whom Linda has always found to be completely compelling for her surprising double careers as an accomplished film star in the 1930s and '40s, and as an inventor of technology that helped defeat the Axis power's gaming of Allied radio communications during World War II. Brains and Beauty! Beauty and Brains!"
