New Look Lily Lolo Make up



    A few weeks ago Lily Lolo announced some big changes coming to the line, I have been a Lily Lolo customer for over six years, it was one of the first mineral make up brands that I tried and one that has very much stayed part of my routine. They are a brand that is British and creates affordable natural products that are talc and Bismuth oxychloride free. I love so many of their products, the green corrector called blush away, the silk setting powder and the blushes are every day essentials but I have worked my way through most of the products in the line over the years. I was excited and also I will admit a little nervous to see what these changes would be, but I am happy to say that I think Lily Lolo have got it right and I have been very impressed. They kindly sent me some products (pictured above) a blush, a lip gloss and their super kabuki, I won't be reviewing these today but look out for posts and swatches on these in the future, today's post is all about the changes the brand have made. 

    First change is fairly obvious and it is that gone is the characteristic white packaging for the make up and it has been replaced with sleek black, whilst the white was very unique to Lily Lolo, it did have it's draw backs mainly that it got very dirty with repeated use. The brand also has a new logo, which is very sweet and is on all the products, the four hearts together remind me of a four leaf clover and when I saw it I instantly thought it was a good fit for Lily Lolo. 

    The make up brushes have also had a revamp, I have a few Lily Lolo brushes in my collection I have picked up over the years, they have always been good brushes but I did have a few issues with some of them. These issues all seem to be addressed now as they have a new line with all synthetic bristles, I much prefer synthetic fibres for brushes, I find them softer, easier to wash and more hygienic. The super kabuki is very soft and lovely to use, so far it washes well and dries quickly. They also have some other great looking face brushes including a nice angled blush brush and a bronzer brush as well a selection of eye brushes. 

    The most exciting change for me however is that they have launched a brilliant selection of eye shadows that are all now pressed, replacing the smaller selection of pressed duos. You still have the loose mineral version available too if you prefer those. There are 20 shades to choose from and I must say I went a bit giddy when I saw them and decided to hide my purse for the rest of the day, the singles are priced at £7.99 making them very affordable compared to other brands, I know I will be adding some of these to my collection as I have collected all of the Lily Lolo loose mineral shadows over the years.

    I am now holding my breath for pressed blushes, if that happened I would be over the moon as I love their colours. Do you use Lily Lolo make up? If so what are your favourites?

  1. Love the new packaging, very pretty! I've been a Lily Lolo fans for years too - particularly excited about the pressed eyeshadows, I've found it next to impossible to find affordable, pressed minerals ones in the past, so can't wait to get my mitts on some of these! :-)

  7. loving the new look. The white lids tended to get a bit dirty. This is a lot more sleek.
