Review: Lily Lolo Pressed Mineral Blush in "Coming Up Roses"


Lily Lolo Pressed Mineral Blush


I recently discovered the brand Lily Lolo through Instagram, and many of the brands products are favorites by green beauty bloggers. I purchased one of the Pressed Mineral Blushes, each blush retails for $20 (0.14 oz) and is available on the Lily Lolo Website and The Detox Market Website.


Lily Lolo is a 100% Natural and Cruelty Free brand that prides itself on all of it's products being "free from harsh chemicals, dyes and fillers and even has antibacterial properties to help improve the skin".


Let's get in to the review!

Lily Lolo claims:


"....(the) pressed mineral blush is an easy-wear, velvety Pressed Blush that is kind to your skin and highly pigmented; perfect for adding a sheer natural flush to a brighter pop of colour....Made with pure inert minerals and completely free of gmo, nano particles, talc, additives, harsh chemicals, parabans, gluten, bismuth oxychloride, dyes, fillers, fragrance, preservatives, petroleum based chemicals, and other questionable ingredients."



The blush comes packaged in a very sleek but sturdy plastic compact with a mirror. I absolutely love the Lily Lolo packaging! It's all very modern and sleek in design so it's perfect for storage, travel, and on-the-go.

There are 7 shades available in the pressed powder formula. I picked up the shade "Coming Up Roses". This shade is a deep cool toned rose. I would describe the finish as being a satin. There is a glow but zero amount of glitter or sparkle.


This color will suit almost every skin tone, from very fair to deep, and in particular those with neutral to warmer skin tones.

The Formula.


The color in the pan looks very dark, but the color is very buildable, so just one or two dabs with a brush into the blush and you'll have a nice soft cool toned rose shade. If you have deeper skin or want more of a pop of color to the cheeks, the color can easily be built up on the cheeks without becoming splotchy or uneven in pigmentation.


It is very easy to apply this powder blush. It's not overly pigmented, so don't worry about applying too much or if you're not sure where to apply this to the face.


I use a medium round fluffy blush brush from Eco Tools to apply this to the apples of my cheeks. I recommend applying this blush with a stiffer blush brush in order to pick up the right amount of product.



Longevity.


When I have applied this over foundation, liquid or powder, I see about 8 to 9 hours of wear before the color starts to fade around the edges.


Even after wearing this blush for 10 to 11 hours, the blush still looks nice and does not look patchy.



Ingredients:


"MICA, SIMMONDSIA CHINENSIS (JOJOBA) SEED OIL, ARGANIA SPINOSA (ARGAN) KERNEL OIL, PUNICA GRANATUM (POMEGRANATE) SEED OIL, LEPTOSPERMUM SCOPARIUM (MANUKA) OIL, SODIUM HYALURONATE, ERYNGIUM MARITIMUM CALLUS CULTURE FILTRATE, [+/- CI 77891 (TITANIUM DIOXIDE), CI 77742 (MANGANESE VIOLET), CI 77491 (IRON OXIDE), CI 77499 (IRON OXIDE)]."



Overall.


This blush formula has great pigmentation, blendability, and staying power. It is just as good, if not better than the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes and other high end blushes. This color is a must-have for Fall and Winter! The formula doesn't irritate my skin, and I cannot rave enough about the clean ingredients this product has. If you're vegan or cruelty free, this shade is both! I will definitely be picking up more shades for Spring!


NEED IT!
5.0/5
