i honestly bough this product mostly because of the packaging and the easy way to apply it. like other reviewers with fair skin the product was too dark and orangey and gave no to little coverage.. sooo waste of money really as its pretty expensive. one good point is that it doesnt look cakey.
overal i think this is a good mascara, it lengthens, thickens and is black black. however it does smudge underneath at the end of the day and is very difficult to remove. i would reccommend this to people if they wouldnt mind spending a lot for a mascara. also, the packaging isnt that great =/
i gave this product two points: one because it is easy to apply two because it feels light and covers well unlike other liquid foundations. the downside was that the palest shade was too dark ( again..) and the finished looked quite heavy because of the amount i put on to get better coverage. The product didnt last long either and looked greasy. i would reccoment this product if you have darker, less oily skin as it is relatively cheap. however i don't think that the product is the uks no1 foundation.. lol

at first when i got this product i thought i would only use it on my cheeks however its the opposite way around. On the lips the colour is really subtle and a good alternative to lipstick or lipgloss as i dont like these on my lips. it also lasted a long time. i do wear it on my cheeks but it dries pretty quick so you have to be quick, the good points are that it last all day and the colour is nice, natural and subtle. some people are saying the applicator isnt very good but i just apply to lips or cheeks and blend it with your finger.
like all everyday mineral foundations they give great coverage and look totally natural. however i found that i had to use loads to get the finish i wanted and they makeup would get shiny quickly. i would highly reccomment anything from everyday minerals though as the reason i dont use them anymore is that i live in england so the shipping costs more and takes weeks to arrive
Ive been using everyday minerals which is an american company and i really like there products however i live in england so the shipping costs quite a lot with big orders and takes around 2 weeks to arrive. I also found that i had to use loads of the foundation when i applied it and it didnt last long. I came accross lily lolo and thought that they looked good and the company is english sooo that was good. I ordered quite a few samples as they're cheap. at first i didnt like the foundation but that was because i was wearing porcelain which was too light ( i automatically think the palest shade would work for me), when wearing this it looked unnatural and went funny around my nose. when i used the blondie shade it looked perfect :) yay ... so it just shows what getting the right shade does. it lasts ages too, ive been wearing it for about 10 and a half hours and honestly its practically the same as when i first applied it this morning which is amazing considering all other foundations ive used go greasy after about an hour or less! a tip i would give to make the foundation last longer to apply the finishing powder before you apply it aswell as after to smooth the skin. the shipping cost under 2 pounds and they package arrived within 48 hours! soo yea i would recomment this product but use a little little bit at a time and build it up.. also get a good quality kabuki brush because if you dont the foundation wont work which is probably why some people give bad reviews..
firstly i have to say that this is the best LIQUID foundation i have ever tried. unlike other liquid foundations ive tried on the highstreet it actually gives very good coverage and dries matte! so no need to put on a load of powder afterwards. A little also goes a long way so the product will probably last ages ( ive stopped using it) . I also like the packaging as its neat and easy to use. The downside of the foundation is that the lighest shade ( as usual ) is too dark/orangey, which is a shame cause i liked it :( . i also found that the foundation got greasy quickly, but thats probably just my oily skin and thats why i prefer mineral foundation ( lily lolo ) i wont buy this product again but i reccomment it is you dont have very fair skin. TO ADD - DONT GET THIS IN YOUR EYES! IT STINGS SO MUCH!!!!!

This is the best pressed powder i have ever used. Firstly because i got the lighest shade and it wasnt too dark! It doesnt look powdery at all which some pressed powders usually do and i like the packaging. overall i think it is good quality but maybe slightly too expensive,

This product was a waste of money and i found it dissapointing. I had seen adverts for this product for over a year and it looked good on different people, however, it was expensive and so i used everyday minerals which is cheap and excellent. The concealer covers well however it is thick and cakey and the foundation looked SOOO heavy. The worst part is i ordered the light colour and it was too dark and orangey which really annoys me. I know this product works for many people, however it still too expensive wether it works or not. TRY LILY LOLO MINERAL FOUNDATION IT IS WAYY CHEAPER, LOOKS BETTER AND LASTS ALL DAY! SERIOUSLY. OR EVERYDAY MINERALS
