Matte finish, clung to dry skin, & melted off & looked cakey by the end of the day. This did not irritate my skin but I will not repurchase!

The worst mineral foundation ive tried, Bare minerals in orginal and inika mineral foundation is wayyy way better.inika is a little pricey but it gives way more coverage. Buy bare minerals or inika definetly if ur in search of a good mineral founsation. This infact doesn't feel like mineral foundation it feels like cheap loose talc!! This Gives no coverage and shows up any lines you have..I wanted this because on certain shopping sites there were good reviews but since I tried it for my self I realised this is not a good foundation. . The packaging is ok but thats what I find most pple fall for. The negative reviews I have read on here are absolutely right in what they said I also feel the same. Also the colour range can seem really confusing! I brought the right shade but whilst choosing my shade I struggled to see what's suitable for me. . Reviews online weren't helpful eiethier. I would not recommend this. It is over rated.. and gives no coverage. It wears off in 20 mins..!

Nice product. Better than bare minerals and far cheaper. Better shade matches too. Best used with the flocked sponge for more coverage but looks lovely applied with a kabuki brush too. The sifter is good but make sure you lock it else it'll spill everywhere! Not the best foundation for dryer skins but if you're sensitive or oily it'd be perfect for you

This used to be my favorite foundation but they must have changed their ingredients because when I bought a new one it was completely different. It does not cover anymore and it looks very dry on the skin. I Would not recommend it to anyone.

I have been using Lily Lolo mineral foundation for more than three years, and I can't believe I have not yet reviewed it! First about my skin: it is very pale, cool undertone, and is now normal after years of battling acne. I still have a tendency to break out, but I only get small blemishes that goes away after a day. It is incredibly important to me that a product does not break me out and is as natural as possible while being efficient.

LL's foundation is the only one I will use- it ticks ALL my boxes. I use Candy Cane which is perfect, and I am lucky that I don't need to blend colours. I use the flocked sponge from LL as it gives better coverage than LL Kabuki brush (which I use with the Flawless Matte finishing powder). It is easy to apply and you can build it up where needed, ie on scars. It stays put in the day but in warm weather I get a shine that should be fixable with a primer (or LL Flawless Matte underneath this foundation). The packaging is better than before because you can close the sifter to prevent waste. I just don't like that I have to really work hard to get the last bit out before finishing the jar. I wish the sifter could be lifted out to get that last bit of left-over powder.

The price vs quality is excellent. The product lasts a long time, I generally buy this about two-three times a year, making it even more economical. I once strayed to Youngblood mineral foundation: double the price, not the same quality, and didn't last as long as LL. So I went back to LL with my tail between my legs, and LL easily earns my loyalty.

To conclude: I highly recommend this product, although it does take time getting used to a loose powder if you normally use liquids and pressed products.

Love this foundation, it provides great coverage without looking cakey. The coverage is buildable. It can look a little dry if you don't moisturise and use a good primer. It lasts really well, after 6 hours of wearing this out to a panto, laughing, and feeling really hot in a stuffy theatre I thought "oh god how am I going to look?". But, I looked pretty fresh faced and my make up was all in place still. Quite impressive I thought. One thing I really adore though is that there are minimal ingredients. Lily Lolo is definitely a new fave.

I purchased this product on a whim after reading an article listing it as one of the best mineral foundations around. Before that I will admit I'd never heard of Lily Lolo before. I always wear foundation and I have tried sooo many (way more than myself or my bank balance would like to admit) but I only ever purchase the liquid or cream variety, as I have never been a huge fan of mineral/powder foundations. My experience with them had been that they were drying, cakey looking or had no coverage. But after recently returning from a 2 week holiday in the hot humid weather of Hong Kong my skin was suffering. I was breaking out and my skin was very dry from the 12 hour flight. And so I ended up browsing the web for something that wouldn't feel heavy or drying whilst still making me feel polished. I purchased this in the shade "China Doll" and for reference I wear mac nc15 and revlon colorstay in buff. I did some research but I think ordering foundation online is always tricky and when my foundation arrived I was a little disappointed thinking that I had picked the wrong shade, but it actually matches my skin so perfectly that you can't tell I'm wearing it. I was impressed with the sifter as you can lock it closed and save yourself lots of mess. The pot is also a nice size allowing you to dispense some product onto the lid and sweep your brush into it with ease. If I was being pedantic then I'd say the packaging looks a tad cheap but then again the product is very reasonably priced and you get ALOT of product for your buck (10g in fact) so that's a minor issue. I apply it with my F20 HD foundation brush from blank canvas cosmetics and buff it in using circular motions. It has a lovely natural finish, doesn't dry my skin out and a big positive for me is that I can't feel it sitting on my skin (I hate that heavy foundation feeling). You can build it up where needed without looking cakey or powdery. It lasts really well and wears off evenly. Once your ready to remove it you can do so with ease. It hasn't irritated my sensitive skin at all or caused any breakouts /dry patches either. Overall I am so impressed with this foundation and have been using it every day. I think it will last ages but once it runs out I'd repurchase it, which I rarely do with make products :)

This is my second mineral foundation after the one from terre d'oc and so far I like it!

The coverage is medium and not too far away from full I would say and you can apply layer after layer without achieiving the texture of a chalkboard. It's pretty much foolproof and the finish is nice! Smooth with a matte glow.

What I love the most about this foundation is that it looks fresh all day (the staying power really is amazing) and it purifies the skin if you have an oily t-zone and a couple of blemishes like me. Sadly it makes my skin a little tight at first but I can deal with it.

Drugstore price without the drugstore quality (this is good stuff). No reason not to try it if you're curious!

- Only a small amount is needed for coverage
-Has a great colour spectrum to match a wide range of skin tones
-Gives a natural finish
-Feels light on skin
-Good price for a mineral foundation

-I have to re-apply the product during the day for a lasting coverage. I have tried the lily lolo finishing powder but i didn't find it made much of a difference.
-Doesn't completely cover my uneven skin tone
- It can sometimes build up on dry areas so make sure the skin is properly moisturized before applying.

After combining this product with the mineral corrector (i like to use PeepO) and my Urban Decay 'all nighter make up setting spay' I've actually come to really like this product as the corrector helps cover my uneven skin tone whilst the ud spray makes this product last so much longer!

I just love this mineral foundation - now!! It took a little trial and error to get correct shade and application technique. I ordered samples of Porcelain, Blondie and Candy Cane along with some finishing powders awhile back, tried them out and kind of gave up on them to be honest as I had to mix them to get correct shade (Candy Cane + Porcelain) and my application + brushes were somewhat lacking :-! Anyway, a few years later my skin is not too happy despite a healthy diet/lifestyle so I started looking at my skin care/make-up and realised I used ALOT of products with ALOT of ingredients in them. I suffer from adult acne, slight rosacea, flakey dry patches and spotty forehead, or at least I did!! Firstly I cut out all my regular facial cleansers/scrubs/serums/moisturisers etc mainly Estee, Liz Earle and Dermalogica and went out and bought Ponds Cold Cream and Nivea Soft - these two simple,traditional and inexpensive products have single handledy made the biggest improvement to my skin in 5 years!!! But my skin was still breaking out after a day wearing liquid foundation, so next I had bit of make-up clear and that's when I came across the long forgotten Lily Lolo samples, being more clued up on mineral mu application and having better brushes made all the difference - all I can say is WOW. The coverage is light/medium but def buildable, works great as concealer, doesn't feel like I'm wearing mu, as long lasting as most of my liquids, doesn't cake/slide off or give me dry patches, if it fades a little during the day it fades evenly and it's so easy to buff some more on top without it looking cakey or uneven like liquid does. It doesn't make me itchy like bare minerals mu did and no allergic reactions - red bumps/burning. I have now ordered full sizes in China Doll (this is a newish shade) which is the most perfect match to my skin tone I think I've ever had, Blush Away, Blusher and Flawless Silk Powder, all great products. Packaging is as standard with sifter tops and design is simple and quite elegant I think. I am so happy I found LL, their products have been the icing on the cake to a long struggle with skin problems. I would like to try their eyeshadows next <3
