this is a really good foundation for my normal- oily/ combination skin. as many of us oily gal's out there i do fear shine/ shimmer/ "glow" but with this foundation the sheen on my skin and cheeks looks absolutley natural! i agree that this foundation do tend to get a bit oily after a couple of hours. BUT, i do set it with the MAC fix+ face mist and a great finishing powder (MAC prep+prime finishing powder, which is amazing!). this combination makes my skin look so good throughout the day. i got quite large pores/ stubborn blackheads and they seem to vanish completly. as the ingredients state this DOES'NT contain any talc which was the main reason i picked this up in the first place, just because i wanted to fight my blackheads not grow them.
i got this foundation in warm peach (perfect for my winter nc15-20 skin) and in the slightly darker shades popcorn and warm honey. so im all set for the spring and summer aswell :)
all and all; great product! will repurchase.
uppdate 12-03-04: i dont use this anymore since i discovered the laura mercier mineral loose foundation which is superior to this one. but i still think its is a good less pricey alternative to the LM. i changed my review to a 3 from 5 as i realized there is even better mineral foundation out here.

I LOVE this product! It is great for my skin which is currently very sensitive. The coverage is ok, not as heavy as I usually use but it covers most of my imperfections and I might try the concealers later to see if that helps with the rest. I bought several of the sample pots online to find my colour. It's really good for pale skin because they have a lot of different shades. Usually I am always the lightest shade in foundation but Porcelain was too light so I am using China Doll.
The down side is it didn't stay matte for very long (2 hours on my very oily t-zone) but I began to use Bare Minerals Mineral Veil finishing powder with it and it works perfectly. I will definitely buy this again! I have bought the kabuki and super powder brushes and might try some of the blushes soon! HG foundation!

Tried Lily Lolo since the delivery is faster than EM.
This is the first foundation, liquid or powder, that made my skin itch. First I thought it's because of mica, but since I can use EM without any reactions, and even Maybelline (that contains bismuth), without any reactions, I was perplexed.
One reason can be that I find the formula a bit dry for my dry skin, now during the winter.
My other guess is that LL contains Ultramarine blue, which is a synthetic pigment. Ultramarine blue is known to be irritant since it contains sulphur/sulfur and people are know to be allergic to this.
But I will give this one more try and see what happens.
Apart from the itchy reaction I did like the colour (China Doll) and it covers well (not as good as EM though).
UPDATE 15/3/2011: Will not use this again. Still itches when I use it and it's actually making my skin even mor dry. If it works for someone else, I'm happy for you. Doesn't work for me. At all.

First off i want to start by saying they have great customer service. They are almost like Alima minus the 3 free samples.
On to the foundation: The color that matched me was Blondie, and I am nc 20, maybe lighter in winter months. the coverage was lacking in comparison to Alima, and my face was oily after 1-2 hrs. Alima keeps me matte for 3-4 hrs ++ and I have really oily skin with medium sized pores, acne prone with acne scarring. Coverage wise I would pick Alima, because i dont have to use as much product to get the same coverage. those of you who are fans of EDM's old formula, Lily Lolo is the closest match in terms of texture that I have tried.

I have tried & failed with foundation for SO long. My skin always ends up looking worse after applying it. I thought I had found my solution with MUFE Face & Body but this Lily Lolo mineral foundation is truly my salvation. I hate a really made up look but I need coverage for my rosy complection & I have open pores that suck up product & look hideous with everything i've tried previously (even with a primer I still get ugly make up plugs). My nose seems to repel foundation & everything ends up sliding off. I have combination skin which is also dehydrated, my t-zone gets really oily looking. Lily Lolo coped with all of this & looked fantastic. I didn't look "sweaty" like I have done with mineral make up that has a high sheen/light reflection to it. Several of the mums at school pick up commented on how good i looked the first time I wore it. I'm really not one to write a review but felt compelled to spread the news !! ...... BUY THIS it is worth it's weight in gold.

So happy with this powder. I'm NC20 so have it in Blondie which has yellowy undertones. It's a great powder and I apply it with ELF's much-loved Powder Brush. For those who think it's too thin, just keep applying more until you get the coverage you want. LL's service is excellent too and the fact you can try out different colours for about £1 each means no more wasting money on the wrong shade. A great product from a lovely company!

I really like this product.
I've used Lily Lolo mineral foundation "blondie" for years now, and it's still my fave.
I actually use it like a concealer, but it works fine all over too. It covers dark circles and blackheads.
It doesn't last very long on my skin though. But I think it can be fixed with a primer.

I use Lily Lolo in Porcelain as I have very fair skin with NO yellow undertones. Most foundations have yellow undertones, even the palest ones. I used to use Sheer Cover but even that was too yellow and contains Bismuth Oxychloride which I happen to be allergic to *sigh*... I happened upon Lily Lolo completely by mistake and I have never looked back. Their Porcelain foundation is perfect for my skin.
I tend to use a very pale liquid foundation (Like Max Factor Lasting Performance in 100 Fair or Clinique Anti Blemish solutions in 01 Alabaster) as a base and then set it with my Lily Lolo foundation powder. I have oily, spot prone combination skin *sighs again* so two layers of foundation is sort of necessary for me, and my makeup usually lasts (and needs to in my line of work) all day long (about 14 or 15hrs). I also find that I use less Lily Lolo foundation powder if I use it over liquid foundation.
Their website do samples of all of their foundations in a whole massive range of colours for cheap so I was able to pick out the colours I thought would match and I am very happy with their foundation. I would definately recommend Lily Lolo's foundations to anyone who wants foundation that feels weightless and makes your skin look quite luminous, although for those wanting High Coverage I would suggest you either look elsewhere for a higher coverage foundation or try my idea of liquid + mineral powder foundation :)

I have very pale skin and I have a lot of trouble finding makeup that doesn't look orange and terrible on my skin; even the absolute palest in most ranges make me look like I've been tango'ed.
I ordered a sample of Lily Lolo's 'Porcelain' when I was looking for a slightly cheaper alternative to Nicola Robert's Dainty Doll powder, and I was really impressed.
You get a lot more for your money, and I find being able to use my own Kabuki brush with Lily Lolo's sifter jar a lot easier than having to fight with the pretty useless built-in brush in Dainty Doll.
The colour is lovely and pale without making me look like I've just crawled out of a coffin, and the powder looks beautifully light and natural.
As much as I love Dainty Doll generally, I think for powder I will definitely be making a switch to Lily Lolo and just mixing and matching with my DD concealer. I'd definitely recommend.
