This is a hard review to write. Used as the product is designed to be used, I'm not sure it's great: When combined with my eye shadow as directed, it goes on my eyes unevenly leaving clumpy bits of make up stuck together and other patches watery and thin looking.

HOWEVER, it works great as an eye shadow primer. Put it on your eye lids first off, and let it dry. THEN apply …

I bought this product after reading all the reviews on here.

I tried 2 different colours - Bone and Sand. Bone was far too light. Sand is the closest I can get, but even this is too light - but the next colour is too dark.

The coverage is THICK. Like, your face will look as if you've stuck it in a bag of flour. All contours and colour shadings are gone and if …

I actually use this as an eye shadow; I use a darker LL foundation (Barely Buff) on my face, then to give my eyes a lift, I switch to this around my eye sockets. Works really well.

Loose Powders - Lily Lolo - Finishing Powder - Flawless Silk

Having tried samples of both Flawless Silk and Translucent Silk, I much prefer Flawless.

It is tinted, so it doesn't leave a whitish tinge like Translucent does. (And I was not overapplying it either!).

It is quite a warm tinge, so I think might work best with warm skin.

I don't really notice this product much - I've been applying it to my cheekbones for a bit of shimmer, but couldn't really see much of the sparkle!

Having read the previous review, I will try with a sponge next time and see if that works better.

This is a great colour and a really subtle shade. Usually with bronzer I have to be careful not to apply too much and to build it gradually, but Waikiki is very subtle and I've never had to be careful applying it!

I use a darker/warmer bronze on my cheeks, and then use Waikiki to sweep up on my cheek bones and perhaps warm my nose, forehead and chin slightly.

I got samples of both Translucent Silk and Flawless Silk and after trying both, I ordered a full size of Flawless Silk.

I just found that Translucent Silk wasn't really translucent - it was white and it did leave my face with a whitish tinge & faded my blush and bronzer (which needed to be reapplied).

I do think that perhaps it makes your makeup stay put longer …

In terms of the colour, although it is very surprising to see something so yellow going under your eyes, it actually works quite well when combined with black circles.

However, as with the Bare Escentuals 'Well Rested' powder - which I recently reviewed too - it doesn't quite work, however I try to use it.

The main problem is what I call 'reverse …

I'm quite new to mineral foundations, having previously tried only the Base Escentuals range. I found it hard to get the right shade, there, and also didn't feel that the powder lasted all day.

I really liked it that, with Lily Lolo, I could order small sample pots for only £1.29, to try out the various shades. I ordered about 6 of them! I think I am either 'Barely …
