Product Spotlight: Rodial Banana Lowlighter

It’s little wonder Rodial’s Banana Lowlighter sold out within a week of its launch. Dubbed a ‘game-changer’ by industry insiders it blurs, smoothes, highlights and conceals – with a suits-all ‘Banana’ shade that works to create a brightening, luminous glow on nearly every skin tone. From ingredients to application techniques, here’s what you need to know…

How It Works…

Now deemed one of the most in-demand products out there, this cult beauty buy was designed with speed in mind. Offering multiple benefits, it’s unfussy and lends a flattering glow to all skin tones. The smooth texture glides seamlessly and can be sheered out for lighter, fresher coverage, making it a great alternative to cakey concealers, too. You only need a small amount – plus, you’ll find the yellow undertones work to colour-correct dark circles, uneven tone and redness, while also giving skin a subtle sheen – especially on the high points of your face. Use your fingers to really push the product into the skin. 

Why Beauty Insiders Swear By It…

Beauty experts and influencers alike rave about this product, which explains why it flew off the shelves after launching. The likes of Monikh Dale and Jessica Skye swear by it, while experts love its ‘suits-all formula that can colour correct, eradicate dullness and enhance your cheekbones.’ For darker skin tones, try wearing a small amount on top of your concealer to add some extra radiance.

The Best Way To Get The Most Out Of Your Lowlighter…

Because Lowlighter is a hybrid product, there are many ways to use it. Make-up master Kenneth Soh explains: “Part highlighter and part concealer, it does a bit of everything. The light texture absorbs quickly into the skin and gives a beautifully fresh finish. To get the most out of it, use it straight from the applicator, focusing on the areas of the face you want to brighten up – think under the eyes, around the sides of your nose, centre of your forehead and spots near the mouth – anywhere that looks dark or dull. For something a bit different, use it as a soft wash across your eyelids, too. This provides a luminous canvas for any eye make-up that follows – the brighter the lid, the fresher and more vivid any colours will look. I also like to buff it into the clavicles of my clients if they choose to wear something low-cut.” 

What The Brand Says…

Incredibly versatile, it’s easy to see why this continues to be a brand bestseller. “It’s now our number one product due to its complexion-enhancing benefits,” says Rodial Founder, Maria Hatzistefanis. “It quickly became a cult buy during lockdown last year, when people wanted to create a brighter-looking complexion at speed. It’s a product that allows you to quickly freshen up your skin and look more awake in minutes. It’s sold out five times over the course of the year, with our customers often bulk buying so they don’t run out.” In fact, because demand was so high, Rodial had to create a waiting list for its customers – which stretched to 5,000 names long. Now they’ve launched a ‘Peach’ shade, too, to cater to warmer tones. “The Banana tone is great if you want to quickly brighten your skin, whereas ‘Peach’ is warmer,” adds Maria. “It’s a good option if you want a more natural, low-key finish that’s also flattering.”
