Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation Review
I heard nothing but great things about the Lily Lolo Mineral Foundations so I ordered the sample pack that comes with 3 shades for $6. The full size retails for $22.
Ingredients: MICA, ZINC OXIDE [+/- CI 77891 (TITANIUM DIOXIDE), CI 77492 (IRON OXIDE), CI 77491 (IRON OXIDE), CI 77499 (IRON OXIDE)].
Warm Peach is for those with a light complexion with warm undertones. This actually matched me the best!
Blondie is for those with a light complexion with neutral undertones, however, I found this to be really cool-toned.
Barely Buff is for those with a light-light medium complexion with neutral undertones. I can get away with using this one as well!
Pros: I love how this foundation covers majority of my blemishes such as my acne and scars. The coverage is a buildable medium to almost full coverage, depending on what brush you use (I use Real Technique's Expert Face Brush). It also leaves the skin looking like skin which is perfect for those who want a natural yet flawless look. It feels like I have nothing on my skin, it's amazing! The foundation also lasts all day on my skin.
Since it's a powder foundation, it can look too powdery but you can easily fix that with a spritz of toner. I find that it looks better midday once it settles into the skin and my natural oils peek through.
Cons: Although this is buildable, it can look cakey if you apply at a time without blending well. As long as you slowly build up the coverage, the skin will look fine. As I mentioned above, the coverage is medium to almost full coverage so I still use concealer on my dark circles and on difficult blemishes if I want full coverage.
Since my skin gets super oily throughout the day, I still have to set my face with a translucent powder.
I am going to order the full-sized mineral foundation in Warm Peach soon! Do you have any recommendations for a light-weight foundation? Let me know!
