Lily Lolo Mineral Cosmetics Foundation
Advantages: Cheap, easy to apply, gives great coverage and is all natural!
Disadvantages: Can look powdery is you apply too much in one go!
I started using mineral make-up about a year ago. This is due to having acne prone skin, I found that liquid foundations blocked my pores and made my skin feel heavy and uncomfortable. I have tried a few brands and this is one that I have stuck by since first trying it out 6 months ago.
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.
-- Packaging --
The packaging is simple but effective. It comes in a 10g Sifter pot, this makes it easy to dispense the desired amount of product without making a mess. The pot is clear so it is very easy to see how much you have left, the lid is also extremely useful to tip your product into and apply it with a brush from there.
-- Price --
I find the price to be extremely reasonable at 12.49 you can't really go wrong. You receive a 10g pot and as you only need to use a little bit at a time, this goes an extremely long way.
-- Application --
The product is very easy to apply, simply tap a little into the lid swirl your brush around and tap off any excess powder. Then gently buff into your skin, only use a little bit at a time as coverage can be built up, you don't want to over do it and make it appear obvious. I tend to apply this using a kabuki brush as it's really good for heavier coverage. But any powder brush will be effective.

-- Effect --
This foundation is gorgeous, not only is it easy to apply but it is extremely lightweight and I sometimes forget I'm even wearing any make-up. The coverage is very good and is easy to build up if you need heavier coverage like I tend to need. I do find that if I overload the brush my face tends to look a little dry and powdery, but since I've been applying a little at a time and making sure that I buff it in completely, it has been a lot more effective and very natural looking. As this is a powder, it does not cover every single blemish, but it make's them much less visible. This has really helped turn my skin around because all of the ingredients are natural. I now only get breakouts at that lovely time of the month -_-
-- Final thoughts --
This product is all round the greatest mineral foundation I have used, it's easy to apply, cheap and is fantastic for oily, acne prone skin and has the added bonus of including SPF 15 so it even protects my skin during the hot weather. The quality of the product is very high and one pot last's me about 2-3 months. Would definitely recommend!
Summary: Light weight, easy to apply, cheap, great for acne prone or oily skin
