I've been using the lily lolo mineral foundation for a few weeks now and am just over the moon to have found something that truely makes me look like an air-brushed but totally natural version of me!!! :) I have skin that tends to get so dry in patches that I occasionally get excema, and I also have an oily t-zone. My skin is also a typical pale English Rose with pink tones. I have never found a single foundation that didn't look yellow, caked and dirty on me. The lily lolo one is incredible... (read more)

I have had combination skin for as long as I can remember ( I am 50). I also have uneven skin tone. I have tried just about every liquid foundation going and it always looked greasy after a few hours and I had dry flaky patches at the sides of my nose. I read about Lily Lolo in the Times about 2 years ago and sent off for a sample of Blondie. I've not used anything else since. It stays on all day and gives an incredibly natural and glowing look. You can build it up to cover blemishes... (read more)

I have been keen to try mineral makeup for a while now, but have always been quite skeptical as to whether it would live up to it's great reputation. I ordered some samples of the lily lolo makeup from the website and it arrived very quickly (2 days). I did not have the proper brushes, just a few old ones but even with these it still made my skin look flawless! It gave me the same coverage as my normal liquid foundation would. I was very impressed at how it felt like I was wearing no... (read more)

I've been using mineral make up for the last year, but finally, I've found one that delivers!
It really fulfils the promise of mineral make up.
For the 1st time ever I've got a foundation that matches my skintone, and the Translucent finishing Silk leaves my skin flawless but natural. Everyone keeps telling me how well I look.
It also has no hidden 'nasties' unlike Elizabeth Arden which I had used for 6 months before discovering it was full of parabens, for me one of the main reasons for... (read more)

Absolutely brilliant product, a really natural coverage. Doesn't last all day but can easily top it up after a couple of hours. Doesn't make you're skin feel cloggy. I use the foundation and the concealer every day after changing from another foundation that used to give me really bad skin. I have never had any further problems since switching to this product as it is so light. The company itself is brilliant as well, very reasonable price compared with other products on the market and... (read more)

This is a great product once you have got used to applying it. If you get too much on your brush then it can looked a little overdone on your face, however when you get that right, it really does look great. I have used Lancome foundation for 20 years, however have found this gives a far more natural finish and blends in really well. The samples are a great idea to find the right colour for you. The makeup lasts all day. I would definately recommend this to anyone considering converting to... (read more)

I ordered a sample of the 'in the buff' foundation and the 'nude' concealer. I've never tried mineral foundation before but I'm really impressed. I don't generally wear foundation because I find liquid versions don't sit nice on my skin so I thought I'd give mineral a try and I love it. I was sceptical that a powder concealer would cover much but I was really suprised and actually like it even more than the foundation. I've ordered 2 more sample shades of the foundation to make sure I... (read more)

I usually use Clarins products, including foundation, but wanted to try mineral foundation because of the hype and to avoid over-using products containing parabens. I've found LilyLolo mineral foundation by far the best mineral foundation out there; the colours work well with my skin tone (which is fair and yellow toned) brilliantly, it's a great finish, it contains totally natural ingredients with no chemical preservatives and it's a fraction of the price of others. This is a truly great... (read more)

Previously, I have tried No.7, Clinique and L'oreal foundations. They always left looking like I was wearing lots of make up on my skin. I'd have to leave it an hour or so before I started to look a bit more natural. I bought some foundation samples from Lilylolo and have just purchased a 'Get up and go kit' (includes foundation, blush, cover up and bronzer) because I was so pleased with the results. I was skeptical about how much cover the foundation would give as I have acne scars and... (read more)

I love lily lolo!! Their foundation is so much better for my skin than anything else I have tried. I used to use liquid foundation and thought that a powder wouldn't be enough coverage for me but i was suprised at how well it went on. The price is very reasonable and the fact that you can order samples is an added bonus. I have just made a second order to get some under eye concealer. The blush is lovely as well and goes on really well. It is nice to put on my make up without feeling that I... (read more)

Inferior product, when compared to Bare Escentuals and very poor customer service. Twice in the past, with other companies I've asked for a refund due to an allergic reaction and on both occasions been refunded promptly. Lily Lolo refused any form of refund or credit note for their product which made my face feel dry and then itchy. A nasty matt finish made me feel and look like I'd dusted my face in flour or talc . Won't buy from them again or recommend them or their products. (read more)

I ordered a trial pot of the porcelain mineral foundation from Lily Lolo as I had read the reviews here and liked the sound of a foundation that looked natural, didn't cake or move into creases plus was kind to the skin.
I've been using it for 3 days so far and bought the Kabuki brush to apply the powder. I'd really recommend getting out a box lid to pop the pot onto as the powder easily escaped and my bed would have been covered! Otherwise it went on well and my skin felt lovely, soft and... (read more)

I like Lily Lolo's fundation, but it took me a while to find the correct shade. I am NC30 skin(according to Mac), and ordered almost every sample in light or light medium shad to try, still made mistake by use in the buff as it is dark, so the full size pot £12 going to the waste. Then I realised the lightest shade "porcelain" fits me well. It give me very nice complextion and not at all too white for me, it just looks quite fresh and youthful. I like the coverage.

On the whole I did like the Lily Lolo Mineral Cosmetics Mineral Foundation, it gives good coverage and i think it is very well priced. I did however think other products were very over priced and the company had a poor attatude towards my questions surrounding this. The setting powders are priced at 99p for a 0.75g sample and £12 for 4.5g tub, this effectively makes the large tub double the price of the equivalent amount of sample pots. I found this really odd since it was more cost... (read more)

Lily Lolo is really good at covering spots and looks really natural and doesn't cost too much money either and they do tester pots that are really useful to try out before you by the actualy make up.

My biggest make up challenge has been finding a foundation that will look natural, give good coverage without aging me further (I'm 34) and will cope with combination skin without flaking in drier areas and clumping in oilier ones.
And a flawless, glowing finish would be nice too!
I use the Kabuki brush to apply the Lily Lolo Mineral Cosmetics Mineral foundation. If wearing it for outdoor activities, the finish remained flawless and dewy. The trick is definitely to 1. use a good base and... (read more)

Being pale and freckly with combination skin I was a complete foundation virgin until the age of 28 when i discovered Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation. I have tried many foundations and wasted a huge amount of dosh and time trying to find a colour to match my complexion and a consistency that would not move, wear off or collect in pores and creases. This foundation answered all of my needs and I have never had so many comments on how good my skin looks. I suffer from occasional spots followed by... (read more)

As a company I cant fault Lily Lolo, they provide a great service, and fantasic sample service. But the product isnt for everyone. Back to the hunt for the ultimate makeup for me.
You would have to have perfect complexion for the makeup to look good. Not enough coverage to hide discolouration and marks. I have greasy skin too and it makes it look shine free for about 1hour and then the shine comes. The matt powder is good as its white and helps with the shine breakout but has to be... (read more)

Lily Lolo Mineral Cosmetics Mineral Foundation was the first mineral foundations I tried and haven't found a better one yet. It goes on easily, blends well, and stays on all day giving a good coverage. Although coverage can be increased if needed in some areas by application of fine layers. There are so many different shades to choose from it would be hard not to find one that suits your skin tone and being able to buy samples to try out is a great advantage. (read more)

Lily Lolo is easily the best make up I've ever tried, they do a huge range of shades to suit every skin tone and sell testers which last about a week for you to try for practically nothing!

I stumbled across this foundation on a forum. I had never heard of it before, but since they offer small sample sizes, I figured, why not?
First of all, it gives equal if not better coverage than a liquid foundation, and coverage close to a cream to powder. Blends very well (as long as you have a good brush) and has really good staying power.
My favorite part is that the shade Porcelain is actually almost white, which by definition porcelain is. Most company's Porcelain is about 4 shades... (read more)
