Atvainojos par matiem…bed hair day + vējš 🙂

Lily Lolo – Ready, Set, Glow 5 piece mineral starter kit

14 Jan
Hello gorgeous! Today I am going to share my thoughts about this Lily Lolo foundation starter kit. About the brand: Lily Lolo is mineral cosmetics range which comes from UK. Every product is free from harsh chemicals, dyes and fillers and even has antibacterial properties to help improve the skin. Foundations, powders and bronzers give women the flawless, airbrushed complexion they so badly crave. Whilst vibrant eye shadows have the ultimate staying power and make the most of all your god given assets… (of course this information is from Lily Lolo site 🙂

The kit includes: three mineral foundations, finishing powder and a Baby Buki brush (sounds so cute 🙂 all the stuff is sample size (0.75 g each). I got my kit in color light. And the shades of foundations are: China Doll (this it Lily Lolo`s second lightest shade), Blondie, Barely Buff and Flawless Silk finishing powder. 

Inside the box there are instructions on how to get a flawless complexion:

About the last step – I am not sure that it is a good idea to set your foundation with a highlighter all over (and to my mind this finishing powder is definitely a highlighter).
To the foundations:
L-R China Doll, Blondie, Barely Buff and Flawless Silk finishing powder
Lily Lolo says:
Finely milled mineral foundation SPF 15 that buffs into the skin effortlessly, and allows custom coverage when applied in buildable layers. Made from natural ingredients to ensure the skin is kept clean and healthy, minimising breakouts and blemishes.
Some time ago they had an information (on site in the description of the product) that foundation is minimizes the size of the pores and makes them less noticeable (but there was a LOT of comments from girls saying that it is a total bullshit 🙂 So now there is no such an information 🙂
My impressions: Firstly, I definitely prefer liquid foundations, mostly because mineral foundations are not so good on hiding broken capillaries (I know that foundation is not meant to hide all the redness, but liquid foundation (without additional concealer) does this job better). And if you put a bit more you will gain an obvious texture 😦 Also powder foundations tend to emphasize dry patches on the skin. But if you have normal skin without visible rosacea, broken capillaries or dry patches this foundation is good enough. 
Lily Lolos mineral foundations are good on mattifying the skin and they have great staying powder. Actually I use them to set the concealer under eyes and they do the job amazingly 🙂 
Swatches: L-R  China Doll, Blondie, Barely Buff, Flawless Silk (finishing powder) 
As you can see China Doll and Blondie have a good match to my pale skin, so they are almost invisible
I tried to make photos under different angles to make the swatches more obvious 🙂
I adore Flawless Silk finishing powder 🙂 It brings natural dewiness and luminosity to the skin without obvious presence of the highlighter. All the foundations and finishing powder finely milled and blend easily.
To the brush:
it is so cute. It is made from synthetic hair. The size is about 5 cm. The brush is very dense and the bristles are very densely packed. There was no shedding or coloring. It is good for applying mineral foundation and powder and just adorable for the blusher.
I got my Ready, Set, Glow kit from here. I have got it for a while, so you can see the difference in packaging.  There was additional charge for the delivery (about 4 British pounds to Latvia). You can get Lily Lolo products from Feelunique without shipping charge, but the kits are rarely available.
Huh! It was a long post 🙂 I hope it was interesting 🙂
