FANTASTIC! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! I wear winged eyeliner everyday & have tried soooo many eyeliners, but this is hands down THE BEST one yet! I got perfect winged liner on the first use (and every use since). It lasts all day, but removes easily with a good eye make up remover. Deffo worth paying that little bit extra for! xXx
Before I tried this, I was using MAC's Prep & Prime, which I wasn't that impressed with, but this is GREAT!.I use it after moisturising, before applying my foundation and find that I no-longer have to blot/touch up my T-Zone at lunchtime. Fantastically silky and you only need to use a TINY amount (made easier because it's in a tube, so no waste) - makes my foundation go on better & absorbs just the right amount of oil without making my skin look or feel dry or cakey. Can be applied over foundation as well, so if you're heading out straight from work you can touch up and look fresh-faced & non-greasy after 8hrs+ of makeup wear. Doesn't make you look cakey or powdery like touching up with powder sometimes can. A must have product for me!
Love, love, LOVE this foundation! I ordered 3 samples - Porcelain, China Doll & Blondie - and discovered that China Doll is the PERFECT match for my skin. Can't even tell I'm wearing it! I'm VERY pale & have always struggled to find a suitable colour-match for my skin, never mind the right formula. I was a big MAC foundation fan (NC15) - mainly for the colour range - but found I always had to touch-up a couple of times during the day, even though I used a primer. Also, couldn't bear wearing liquid foundation in summer or humidity - it's just too heavy & melts off! Lily Lolo mineral foundation is beautiful...natural, buildable coverage that evens out my skintone, disguises minor blemishes & doesn't look either cakey or shimmery. I'm in my early 30's and find it doesn't settle into my fine lines around my eyes - always a bonus. I honestly think my skin has improved since I started using this daily - definitely a reduction in breakouts. And it lasts well! Like other reviewers have mentioned, the key is good preparation!! 1) Use a good moisturiser suitable for your skin-type, (I use pure argan oil, which I've found actually helps control my oily T-zone!), & LET IT ABSORB for a few minutes before applying your makeup. 2) Use a suitable primer if you have problems such as large pores or oily skin/oily T-zone. This applies to ANY foundation! (I like Benefit's The Porefessional & MAC's Matte Creme). 3) Buff your Lily Lolo mineral foundation into your skin well, using small amounts & ensuring an even coverage - building extra coverage where you need it. I use a kabuki brush, but have ordered the flocked sponge to try & compare results. If you have larger/more noticeable blemishes, you may want to try applying your concealer before your foundation, and then touch-up with more concealer if required after applying your foundation. If you want a full-coverage look, then this probably isn't for you as it gives such a lightweight natural looking finish - I can still see my natural freckles after application. BUT you could use the mineral foundation as a finishing powder on top of your liquid foundation for a totally flawless full-coverage finish! 10/10 from me. I am a Lily Lolo convert!
