Lily Lolo Cheek Duo In Coralista | Review
Lily Lolo is one of those brands I've had my eye on for a few years now. I first came across their products on Instagram when scrolling through the #veganbeauty feed. Truth be told, that is where I discovered many green beauty brands, both big and small! Upon reading up on the company, I learned that they are based in London but are are now also located in America. They are said to be the "original mineral makeup" brand of Europe, which is neat to say the least! They carry a variety of makeup products, from BB creams to mineral powders, concealers. correctors, blushes, bronzers, eyeshadows, mascara, brushes and more!
Imagine my delight when I was asked to try out the Lily Lolo Cheek Duo in Coralista*, a compact powder combo that features a coral blush and gold highlighter. As soon as I saw these shades, I knew I would get a ton of use out of them. As you can see in the arm swatches below, these are nicely pigmented an apply with ease on my arm. When it comes to applying them on my face however, I've found it is best to use a dense blush brush as opposed to a stippling brush to really pick up that pigment and for it to transfer. The packaging is sleek and sturdy and features a mirror, making it perfect for when on the go. This Cheek Duo also comes in Naked, featuring a more pink toned blush and highlighter.
What is this cheek duo made with? I'm glad you asked! All of Lily Lolo's products are vegan and talc free and this blush duo in particular is made with mica and naturals oils including jojoba, argan, pomegranate, vitamin E and manuka oil as well as titanium dioxide and iron oxides. Despite being in powder form, both the blush and highlighter have a silky texture. The blush is matte, while the highlighter subtly reflects light. I mixed a bit of the highlighter with the blush to achieve the look you see below.
This is my first ever vegan blush and I have to say I'm a big fan!
You can purchase the Lily Lolo Cheek Duo in Coralista (US$24/C$32.40, 10g) on Credo Beauty and Lily Lolo.
