Polishes - Unlisted Brand - Jessica - Custom Nail Colour

I had this applied at a salon, but I'm guessing it wears the same whoever does it (it just doesn't look as neat when I'm in charge). I went for 'Notorious' a gorgeous deep slate grey / almost black colour with tiny shimmery flecks and a reddish undertone if you look really closely. I love this colour.

However, my main rave is for how long it has lasted. I had …

Concealers - Jane Iredale - Circle Delete Under Eye Concealer

3.0

Feb/08/2011

This is a hard product to review, because there are things I really love about it, and things I really hate.

Pros:
* good coverage
* it really does delete my circles
* light relective - but not glittery at all, just glowy

Cons:
* really thick formula
* hard to blend
* smells like old paint

I am torn by this product. It is so thick …

Primer/ Corrector - Laura Mercier - mineral primer [DISCONTINUED]

Nov/01/2009

I love this product. I have dry skin, and apply this after moisturiser and before Lily Lolo mineral foundation. I find it provides a perfect base, making the foundation application much smoother and easier. It also means I can use a lot less foundation - it's as if the first layer of foundation is being replaced by the primer. However, I'm not sure how expensive this primer is (RIS …Read more

Lipstick - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Mineral Lipstick

I love this product. Nice natural ingredients, and the texture feels great on the lips. Matte finish. Also like the packaging which is similar to NARS but less rubbery so it doesn't pick up powder from your makeup bag. However, I'm not so pleased with the colour choices. I tried runaway pink and it is really pale. As they are so cheap however, I will experiment with more colours. I …Read more

Lips - Unlisted Brand - Lipcote Lipstick Sealer

Oct/13/2009

Just tried this today, and it really works! I'm using it over Max Factor Hyperful in Voluptuous. It's a very bright red and I was worried about it wearing unevenly, so I bought this to lock down the colour. It really does what it says it will.

However, you must follow the instructions. If it feels sticky, you've put on either too much lipcote, or too much lipstick …

Concealers - Lily Lolo - Mineral Concealer (all shades)

I have this in Blondie, and think it's brilliant. Superb coverage for me. Also, the powder is much easier to use than a liquid concealer, as with liquids I often find I am wiping it off as I try to put more on. I also find liquid doesn't 'adhere' to fresh spots, if you know what I mean, so I end up with a very pale ring of obvoius concealer and then a glowing bright red spot …Read more

Jul/10/2009

I ordered this in 'fair' as I am very pale. When it arrived I knew without even opening it that it would be way way too dark for me. They did allow me to return it without issue, and were very polite.

If you are pale and want to try mineral foundation I would recommend Lily Lolo. It is the only place I have ever found where the palest shade is actually too pale for me! They …

Jul/10/2009

I bought this in 'Bliss'. It's a nice soft pink shade, nothing to shout about, but that's what I wanted just as a basic working day blush.

The colour is nice, the consistency is fine. However, the pot is terrible! I don't know why it's so bad as I use mineral makeup all the time. I think (and this is going to sound ridiculous) there is too much product in …

Makeup Brushes - Lily Lolo - Super Kabuki Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/10/2009

I ordered this when I first changed to mineral foundation. I definitely couldn't have made it work without a decent kabuki brush, and this is it!

I usually order online, but was confused by the offerings on the website, as it said this was the same bristles as their standard kabuki brush, but offered no more information. So I rang them. A real person answered immediately, and was …

Gels/ Soaps - Burt's Bees - Citrus Spice Exfoliating Shower Soap [DISCONTINUED]

I love this soap!

Haven't used bar soap in years. However, I got this in a swap, and decided to try it out for it's exfoliating qualities on my upper arms (they are covered in tiny purple pimples, yuk in sleeveless for summer). Anyway, after just TWO days, my arms look almost like the rest of the skin on my body ie. blemish free.

It does feel quite rough when you …
