I dont know about you, but I had never heard of this company before, until several people reccomended it to me on a previous post. I have always had oily skin, so finding the correct makeup to use can be a nightmare. I seem to have tried almost every foundation available, and I had finally settled with Dream Matte Mousse. However, I decided to give Lily Lolo a whirl, and here is what I thought..
I went online a few weeks ago and purchased the Mineral Finishing Powder in Flawless Matte, Mineral Foundation in Warm Peach and a cute little sample pot of the Mineral Foundation in Popcorn, as I wasnt sure of my colour. The two larger pots cost £12.49 each, and the sample pot cost £1.29. Although £12.49 is more than I would like to spend on a foundation, if it works, I cant complain.
When I first ordered the sample pot I thought it would be a truly minimal amount, enough for one application. So, I was amazed when the sample contained so much of the product. The reason I bought a sample was due to the fact that I wasnt sure of my colouring and before anyone gets any ideas, you can only add one sample pot to your order.
I have never tried Mineral makeup before, so I was really intrigued to see the difference. I find the powder quite difficult to apply, and feel I am loosing more than applying, but I do think there is a 'knack' to it, and I shall get the hang of it. Once applied it felt very light and natural on the skin, and left my skin feeling silky and soft. I just love it. Compared to the Dream Matte Mousse it is a miracle. My pores dont feel clogged, urgh, which is a feeling I can get from liquid foundations.
I found there to be very little difference in the colouring between Warm Peach and Popcorn, I dont know whether that is just me? The larger pot of Mineral Foundation is even more difficult to use I find, as I can never seem to get any product out. Can anyone help me? What am I doing wrong?
When I first went onto the website, I had no intention of buying this product, The Mineral Finishing Powder. If I am going to be totally honest, I didnt really know what it was supposed to do. The reason it found its way into my virtual shopping bag is, that I read somewhere on the website (where I do not know, as I cannot find it now) about how people with oily skin should apply a finishing powder to their skin before applying the foundation, to stop the makeup from moving. I know, its a grim thought, that your makeup slides around on your face. But, I decided to give it a go.
Again, I find it quite difficult to apply as I havent quite mastered the art of mineral makeup yet. Once applied, it isnt at all noticeable, in appearance or feel. It is a very thin powder and just applies simply after you have moisturised. Only you will know it is there, as you know you applied it because I doubt anyone else can tell. I do find it works and keeps my foundation in place, not that I was aware it moved. But I find it more reassuring than anything.
Have you ever heard of Lily Lolo?
Do you own any of their products? What do you think of them?
Or, will you be purchasing any of their products?
