Lily Lolo Mineral Cosmetics Coverup
Advantages: Covers up imperfections, cheap, lasts a long time.
Disadvantages: Can be hard to blend in but using the right techniques it comes naturally!
I am a huge fan of Lily Lolo mineral make-up. It is the only thing that doesn't irritate my sensitive, acne prone skin. I use there foundation, bronzer, concealer and finishing powder. I recently purchased the Cover up in shade blush away, this is a green tinted concealer which is to combat redness, acne and other blemishes. It encompasses natural healing properties.
-- Packaging --
I love Lily Lolo's packaging because it is simple and always easy to dispense the desired amount of product. This comes in a 4g sifter pot, the lid unscrews and is really useful for tapping your product into before then applying with a brush. The container is also see through which makes it easier to see how much product is left.
-- Price --
I find the price to be extremely reasonable at varying between £7 and £8. As you only need a little bit of the product at a time, I assume this would last a long time just like the foundation has done in the past for me.
-- Application --
To apply this I simply tap a little bit into the lid, I apply using a concealer brush, making sure to tap off any excess so my face doesn't look too powdery. This is really easy to build up the coverage especially if you have a lot of redness, acne or scaring. This can take a little while to get used to buffing it in properly, as it does tend to leave a green tint to the areas applied, but once you've done it a few times it just comes naturally. I also tend to apply this before my foundation, just so that when I do come to apply my foundation if there is a green tint, the extra buffing tends to hide this easily so don't worry to much.
-- Available shades --
Blush away - Great for redness, acne and scaring
Peepo - Great for dark circles under the eyes
-- Effect --
I find this corrector absolutely brilliant and the best thing I have ever used to cover up my redness and acne scarring. It blends in perfectly once you get used to having to buff it in. When I first bought this I was a little worried as I could never seem to get the green powder to blend to the colour of my skin, but once I watched a video on Lily Lolo's website I learned how to buff it in perfectly using small, circular motions. I have definitely noticed the difference to the appearance of my skin even without make-up since I started using this, which I believe is to do with the included healing properties. The amount of breakouts I get has been reduced considerably which is great as I only have to use a small amount of this product of faded scars. The coverage is brilliant as it is easily built up, it covers everything which is perfect and really makes a difference when you apply your foundation. My skin looks healthier and has a beautiful glow that I haven't seen since before my teenage years. I have had problems with make-up only lasting a couple of hours before my face starts to go shiny and imperfections start to show through, but with this I can go without reapplying or touching up my make up all day, as the lasting power is absolutely fantastic. I can see this pot lasting a really long time as a little goes a very long way, you really do get the most out your money.
-- Final thoughts --
I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who has skin insecurities such as redness, acne and scaring as this is great for covering up all those imperfections and hopefully in the long run making your skin healthier. Great price for a great product!
Summary: Great cover up, highly recommended!
