Lily Lolo Blush Showdown: Pressed vs Mineral

Lily Lolo Pressed vs Powder Blush

I recently was in desperate need of a new blush, so I decided to try one out from one of my favourite natural companies: Lily Lolo. I love them for their design, their affordability, the clean ingredients they use and of course that they are cruelty free. You can read more about the brand here.

So i jumped onto their website and went back and forth between the loose mineral blush and the pressed blush and finally decided to just try them both. I generally like natural, slightly pink-ish blushes so I literally managed to pick up twoΒ in exactly the same colour (which I don’t mind at all). They will look slightly different in some of the following pictures but on my (currently still quite tanned) cheeks both colours look literally identically.

Lily Lolo Laid Bare Eye Palette

Lily Lolo Laid Bare PaletteI absolutely love eye shadow palettes, because I think they are just so convenient and easy- especially the ones with natural shades for an everyday quick eye look! I usually keep my eye makeup the same and pretty repetitive so I actually use up eye shadow palettes quite quickly (except for that odd shade that every palette has probably πŸ˜‰ ). I have been searching for a natural one for a while because somehow palettes don’t seem to be too common in the green beauty world. Anyway, I was super happy to stumble across this Laid Bare Eye Palette from Lily Lolo- as the name suggests the shades are very neutral, perfect for an everyday look and also suiting my brown eyes!Read More

Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation (Starter Collection in Medium)

Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation Starter Set

Hi everyone, long time no talk! Life has gotten the better of me lately and unfortunately that meant not spending as much time on here as I would have liked to. Moving across the world and changing your life rather drastically is a scary process and the last two months were definitely challenging for me. However, I think what is important to remember when going through major changes in your life is to just take it one step at a time and not rush yourself into anything too soon. Taking time off to reflect, reevaluate and regroup are important (though sometimes painful) processes in our life, which often cannot be rushed. Also, if I have learned anything from this experience is to not put yourself under too much pressure and thus neglect the things that truly make you happy. For me, I really enjoy blogging, making videos, as well as testing and researching green beauty and fashion items. But instead of focusing on that, I focused on all the worries of my life, as I felt that they were more important. Yes, makeup and beauty is not the biggest necessity in our lives, but it makes me happy and if I am happy I am a lot more likely to look at things with a more positive mindset. So since we are on that topic…let’s get back into what you probably came here for…makeup! πŸ™‚

First off, can we all appreciate that packaging…Isn’t it sooo pretty. Yay for natural makeup looking just as gorgeous as “mainstream” makeup! Second of all, how cool is the concept that you can buy a samples pack, with four different shades to try out the brand before purchasing the real deal! Talk about customer-friendly! The set was part of my recent natural products haul, so you can check it out live and in colour here! Since then I have tried and tested it (and actually almost finished all four of the little containers), so keep on reading if you are interested in a review (and pictures of my face with the makeup on ;-))
