Ah, fresh make-up! Is there anything better than the sight of clean, fresh, make-up! Although I have to say, it doesn’t look this neat anymore now that I’ve used it!...
Lily Lolo (shop link) is a minerals cosmetics company you may not be familiar with but they are celebrating their 10th birthday this year! Lily Lolo have recently been through a brand refresh and although I really liked their branding before, I love it even more now. It’s surprising what a small change can do! The new branding is a lot stronger and slicker. For anyone who’s interested in what it used to be like, you can see it in my review of their eyeshadow quad palette.
Lily Lolo is a British brand that offer high quality mineral make-up. They stay clear of harsh chemicals, are parabens-free, do not test on animals and 95% of their products are vegan friendly (they state which ones are not on their FAQs).
I’ve used a few things from Lily Lolo in the past couple of years and can confirm that they quality, pigments and lasting power is high. Y’know, there’s nothing worse than using make-up that’s weak and comes out off within an hour - waste of effort - but every Lily Lolo make-up product I’ve used has been impressive.
The lipstick (£8.99, shop link) is in shade Intense Crush which is a pretty peachy pink, it’s a beautifully natural colour on me - so not as intense as the name suggests, and if you’re not very daring with lipstick, I would recommend this. It put a bit of colour back on your lips and gives a complete finishing touch to a subtle day time look. The finish is a semi-matte and the formula is very creamy, non-sticky and moisturising to wear. There are currently 13 different shades available.
Now that it’s Autumn, I’ve replaced my bright pink NARS blusher for a deeper rose pink. Lily Lolo’s Coming Up Roses (£9.99, shop link) is a nice transition from summer to autumn, with a touch of purple in it. It’s not as dark as it looks but as it has a good amount of pigment, the colour is buildable. It’s a matte powder so it has no shimmer or shine in it's finish.
We’re all about the eyebrows these days, right?! I can’t prise myself away from my HD Brow palette but I am most definitely open to trying new brow products like this duo kit (£7.99, shop link). I picked it in the Medium shade but I really should have gone for the Dark. As it’s not the right shade for me (was totally my fault), I haven’t been able to get the most out of it - but basically, the duo palette contains a pressed powder to fill in your brows and a gel to hold and set them in place. It doesn't come with a brush but it is cute and compact.
