I interviewed the perpetually glamorous Linda Rodin for the current issue of STYLEBY. And since it has been translated into Swedish for print the full feature is in English below. Happy reading!
Stylist, icon and beauty boss, Linda Rodin has stepped into the world of colour cosmetics. The self-proclaimed ?tough tomato? introduced an edit of five eye-catching lipsticks to Rodin?s assortment of face and body care. Rodin?s foray into colour was much anticipated. Her eponymous line (which is now part of Estée Lauder Group) has been a favourite among fashion darlings since its launch in 2007. Having sent the beauty world into a tizzy after introducing her cult face oil, Rodin is partially responsible for the face oil craze. Her new generation of long-wear, high pigmented lipsticks are definitely products to watch. Linda opens up about her creative process, latest launch and aging gracefully.
You?re known for saying ?beauty is simplicity?. How does your current edit of products fit into this theory"
?I don’t make gratuitous products. I make things that I use daily and are essential to me.?
Why did you decide to launch lipsticks"
?I decided to make lipstick because I use it every day and wanted perfect colours and texture.?
For those who aren?t familiar with Rodin, can you describe how you created the formula for your oils"
?I made the formula in my bathroom, mixing many of the oils I always loved and used independently of each other. One day I decided to mix them all together. It’s the same formula since day one.?
Was the process similar for creating lipsticks"
?It isn’t similar because I could not make lipstick at home. It is similar because I couldn’t find the perfect lipstick for me so I had to make it. It?s the same reason I made my face oil. Nothing on the market appealed to me at that time.?
Is your lipstick wardrobe complete with five shades or do anticipate additions down the line...
