Lily Lolo Shimmer Stripes in Rose Glow.


Lily Lolo Shimmer Stripes in Rose Glow* (£19.99)
Lily Lolo is one of those brands that will always hold a special place in my heart. I was searching for reviews of their mineral foundation when I stumbled across the beauty blogging community about 4 years ago, a community that ended up welcoming me in and becoming an enormous part of my life. So in a way I have Lily Lolo to thank for my blog and I'll always appreciate that. More than that though, their products are lovely - I've had a pot of the mineral foundation in my make up collection for years now and I think I always will!

Part of their new limited collection, the Shimmer Stripes in Rose Glow is a simply beautiful product. The packaging is sturdy and compact, with a large mirror that makes it very handbag friendly. The different shades when swirled together give a flush of radiant pink to the cheeks without being overly shimmery and the creamy-white stripe is wide enough for me to be able to get a small brush in to add an extra touch of highlighter if I'm going for a more dramatic look. The pigmentation is perfect and the colour isn't too bright so it never looks too much but I like that it can be applied sheerly for a soft look or built up for a stronger, more sculpted cheek look. 

At almost £20 the only downside I can find is the price however I do absolutely think it's worth every penny. Both the product and the packaging are such lovely quality that I don't think you would be disappointed if you wanted to invest and it's been great to see that their pressed products are as good as their loose minerals.

Have you tried anything from Lily Lolo before? 

Love, Jennie

    The colors suit your complexion really well - what a pity that we don't have Lily Lolo in Austria, sigh! Do you have any other products by them?
