Lily Lolo

First of all, I'm very sorry for the absence, I have hit a rough patch and haven't really had the motivation to do anything, but I am back and will hopefully be posting regularly again.

Last week I recieved my order from Lily Lolo and I am very happy with the products I chose. I have been wanting to purchase some of their products for a while now, but thought I should probably use up some of the ones I have first, so I was like a kid in a candy store when I finally got to. But, sadly, I had to restrain myself and just buy a few things to try.

Sadly, I picked the worst day to start posting as the weather is crap and the photo's arent very good quality, so I may have to add them in at a later time.

I purchased a full sized Mineral Blusher in Cherry Blossom, a full sized Eye Colour in Honey Peach, and sample sizes of Mineral Foundation In The Buff, Mineral Foundation Popcorn, Finishing Powder Flawless Silk and Mineral Shimmer Stardust.
I also purchased the Super Kabuki and I recieved a free Eye Blending Brush.

I love the little frosted pots that the full sized products come in, and the twisty click lid inside the blush is awesome, I haven't seen that in any other loose powder containers before.

Cherry Blossom Blush: I love love love the colour of this, although i'm not really a fan of the shimmer, which, yes I knew it was shimmer when I bought it, but it just doesnt suit me. Or maybe I don't know how to apply it properly. Either way, I will keep using it because the colour is great. It is a nice peachy colour with a candy pink type shimmer to it. Perfect.
Mica (CI77019), May Contain: Iron Oxides (CI77491, CI77492, CI77499) Titanium Dioxide (CI77891), Ultramarine Blue (CI77007)
Honey Peach Eye Colour: Another perfect colour. I think I buy way too many nude/peachy/skintone shades but I can't help it, they suit me so well. This is a beautiful sandy peach colour with a slight golden shimmer to it.
Mica (CI77019), May Contain : Titanium Dioxide (CI77891), Iron Oxide (CI77491, CI77492, CI77499), Chromium Oxide (CI77288)

Mineral Foundations: I really like the foundation's from Lily Lolo, they actually blend in really well and give a nice flawless, even look. In the Buff is too dark for me but Popcorn is perfect.

Finishing Powder Flawless Silk: This is a really nice product to finish with as it just illuminates the face nicely, giving a fresh finish.

Mineral Shimmer Stardust: Such a nice product. I actually don't use this on my face, but rather as a body shimmer. It doesn't really have any tint to it, so it gives a beautiful glow which is nice for going out. I also read a comment on the Lily Lolo website, where someone said they mix it with moisturiser...that sounds like a good idea to me.  I will deifintely be buying a full size of this.

I really like the brush's too. The Kabuki is just so much easier to use than the long handled EcoTools brush I was previously using for my powders, and it is so dense. The Eye Blending brush is also really dense and somewhat stiff compared to EcoTools but again, a great brush.

I would love to try some more of their eyeshadows so if anyone has suggestions on good colours let me know :)


  1. Have you tried the lip gloss? I really like them, I haven't tried anything else from the range, I find shopping for makeup online rather daunting as it's hard to know what colours to choose.

    1. No, but I was really tempted to buy the 'Cue The Nudes' lipgloss set. Next order perhaps :) I agree with online shopping being daunting, but I don't have much choice, because where I live in Australia there aren't many stores that sell natural makeup.

  2. So glad you did this post! I was toying with buying Lily Lilo products last night but couldn't decide what I wanted & logged off. I agree I find it difficult to buy make-up online as I can't see the colours properly. Honey Peach & the finishing powder were two items that were on my list along with their vanilla eye-shadow, so it's good to know what you thought. I've only used Bare Minerals until now but their prices seem too good to resist for the ingredients :)

    1. Haha I did that so many times before actually buying anything. I would also like to try their vanilla eyeshadow. I haven't tried Bare Minerals yet, they are a bit too pricey for my budget :)

    2. Lol, well I'll be honest, I got the original starter kit for a birthday present and the products lasted for over a year! I just topped up with the mineral veil as I loved it so much. Then got the well rested for a pressie the year after. (Not sure what these people were trying to hint at haha!) I still haven't ordered yet :)
